So much for “true” love! Just in time for Valentine’s Day, a super-romantic study found that a third of women and a fifth of men have said “I love you” to a partner when they didn’t really mean it! At least their hearts are in the right place- many women admit to saying those three little words because their man said it first and they didn’t want to hurt their feelings. Others have dishonestly declared love during a passionate moment, or because it simply seemed like the right thing to do at the time. While women are more likely than men to say “I love you” when they don’t actually mean it, men are more likely to make the first move- only five percent of guys would wait for their partner to say “I love you” first, compared with more than 20% of women. Almost 60% of people don’t waste any time, telling a new partner they love them within the first month of dating. Of course, any time you put your emotional cards on the table, you risk epic embarrassment. About half of people whose partners said “I love you” first didn’t say it back.
