Women shouldn’t say “I love you” first?

Filed under: Advice,News — posted by Chris @ 8:19 am

If a gal realizes she’s in love with her man, should she keep her mouth shut? Over at Salon’s Broadsheet, Sarah Hepola chimes in on the recent CNN/The Frisky post, “Why Women Shouldn’t Say ‘I Love You’ first,” which posits, basically, that dudes can’t handle it. Sarah has a reaction many of us might:

It’s the kind of story that can’t help being irritating: First of all, because it’s a glib service piece in which advice about profound life experiences is shoehorned into a few measly grafs; second of all, because it’s dumb. It’s asinine, right?

Then she emails her guy friends who, with equal doses of articulateness and immaturity, convince her the writer may have a point. One guy friend even looks at the odds:

It’s just statistically less common to hear of girls getting weirded out and bailing on a relationship after the L word, so as a rule of thumb I think it’s fine.

Obviously there will always be special cases — and special guys — but is this basically correct?


  1. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been doing a little research on this.
    And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him…
    lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss this topic here on your site.

  2. This design is incredible! You definitely know how to keep a
    reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost
    moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job.

    Too cool!

    take a large amount of work? I have absolutely no expertise in programming but
    I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyway, if you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off topic nevertheless I just needed to ask.
    Thanks a lot!
