Things ex-boyfriends have said to me after I said, “I love you”*

by Shulamith Firestone

  1. I feel something for you that’s stronger than “like” but not as serious as “love” . . . I would say that I “loke” you.
  2. Who really knows what “love” is, anyway?
  3. I know.
  4. I don’t not love you.
  5. I’m not sure what you mean by that.
  6. I think you’re very smart.

*At least they were honest! If you’re not ready to say it, you shouldn’t. And in hindsight I’m grateful to these guys for crushing me in the moment rather than stringing me along for God knows how long.

One response to “Things ex-boyfriends have said to me after I said, “I love you”*

  1. Better than the one terrible response I can remember giving: “THANK you!”
