Poll: Who Should Say “I Love You” First

Today, you guys are going to settle an argument for me. It is my position that men should say the powerful words “I love you” first. Men have a harder time saying those words than women do. More than that, a woman can feel that she loves a guy, but if the guy doesn’t feel it and/or won’t say it, the relationship is doomed anyway and a woman is wasting her breath. In addition, men are conquerors. A woman saying the words first takes all the sport out of the hunt, draining the guy of positive feelings he might have.

A friend believes that women should say the words first because a guy saying them will scare her off. Because the words mean so much to a guy, a woman should say them first because it shows she is comfortable with the idea. A guy isn’t bothered by the words as much.

Of course, I disagree for the stated reasons above. Plus this: a guy who says “I love you” on Date #1 or 2 is often trying to get into a girl’s pants and that’s a whole different kettle of fish. Even then, the words aren’t scary–they’re revealing and can be amusing. What’s scary is so many women buy the words in that situation, but that’s a problem for a different day.

Then there is this: Who should say the words first? We all have theories, but practice is what counts. Who actually does say them first? So what do you think?
