Don't force yourself to say something you don't feel comfortable with.
O"I love you more"the debate, while commonly seen as a clichéd high school joke, can quickly turn into a toxic red flag if you're not careful. There may be a variety of different ways in which you choose to respond to someone who says that"I love you more."
You will know better in what context your intentions to declare"I love you more"fall low
The varying degree of context can fall into these two categories:
- The innocent context, totally in love and amazed, or
- The context of power in an effort to show superiority and create competition while establishing a sense of ownership and command.
When someone tells you "I love you more," notice your initial reaction as muchmentallymiphysically.
- Do you feel repelled or like you are cornered?
- Do you feel seen and appreciated?
- Do you recognize that this is one of the ways that people show affection to you?
- You think to yourself, now what do I answer?
- Should I show them that I actually love them more?
With anything in a relationship,don't force yourself to say or do something that makes you feel uncomfortable. This includes acknowledging or responding to"I love you more."
Instead, you can try responding with something a little moreneutral, as:
“Our love has the perfect balance” o
"Our love for each other is the same."
Responding with a sarcastic joke can lead to playful laughter or low self-esteem.
Depending on your relationship, responding with a little more sarcastic banter can lead to laughter and funny conversation and affirm that they do, in fact, love you more. You can try replying with something like,"I'm sure yes."
I highly recommend avoiding making comments like this if you or your partner are experiencing low self-esteem or relationship-related insecurities.
Dating Coach And Male Mindset
a phrase like"I love you more"it can mean different things to different people. When your partner says this, ask yourself:"What do I think they mean?"and then notice how you feel.
How do you feel is thekeyHow will you answer?
Get silly if you're feeling frisky
Do you think they said that to joke and have fun with you? Reply with equally funny things!
"Oh yeah? Well, I love you more than all the drops in the ocean! I love you more than I love barbecue fries!"
Show your gratitude if you're feeling sentimental
Sometimes partners say this just to be sweet. You may not need to say much, but some kind of response will help them know that their words were heard and appreciated.
Ahug, akiss on the cheek, asmile, or a short spoken response like,"Awwwwww"often it is enough.
Share your heart if you feel in love
Saying,"I love you more,"it can be an attempt to share more deeply what is in your heart.
If you feel moved, you can share how much and why you love this person.
O"because"it is especially important and significant, but often overlooked.
- "I love you so much more than you could ever imagine."
- “His presence has changed my life for the better in so many ways."
- “I am more patient and kinder thanks to you.”
- “The way you appear to me has helped me to be kinder to myself.“
- “I can't imagine a better or more loving person to share life with."
Ask for clarification if you feel confused.
Sometimes we are not sure what our partner means when he says:"I love you more."
- Are they being playful?
- Do you want me to share what's on my heart?
- Do you think there is an imbalance in our relationship?
- Do you feel unloved?
I think we mistakenly believe that we should "just know" what is on our partner's mind at all times.
It's okay to just ask,"What do you mean by that?"
Whatever you do, intentionally respond in some way. After all, no answer is still an answer. In most cases, all it takes is a smile or a little squeeze.

"Very cool; tell me more about that"
"I love you more."That's a statement, and statements don't require a response. Only questions are meant to get an answer, but even inappropriate questions are not worth your consideration.
So how should you respond if, in fact, you choose? The shorter the statement, the more we need to clarify to make sure we are covering the correct concept.
Before we can answer any questions, we need to define what we are talking about.
According to the dictionary, love is a deep and affectionate affection for someone or something, a feeling of intense attraction towards someone or something.
I shudder trying to define something as personal as love. Entire books have been written on the subject. If these books clearly and definitively expressed the concept of love, then we would be using their definition here and now.
In other words, entire books have not done this subject justice.
I won't try to explain your personal brand of love. I will mention only some of the general and basic principles of what is needed for love.
We cannot love something or someone we do not know. It wouldn't make sense to say"I love your way of sewing"I don't know if things.
- “We cannot know what is not shared. Again, if you don't share what you sew with me, you have chosen to exclude me from that particular aspect of your life.
- “The more we share, the more we know.”
Sharing is not caring; sharing isknowledge. And knowing is inclusion.
Once shared and known, we make the decision to care or not. Care can be measured. Caring is made of time, effort and sacrifice.
Normally, when people talk about love, they present it in a waystaticterms. It's kind of "one and done". Examples of this are the phrases “find love” or “true love”. These project love into the light of an object.
Love, however, isdynamic.
Love is always changing.Love is not a single thing. And theamalgamationof many things There are enchanting sights, enchanting sounds, enchanting smells, enchanting tastes, enchanting touches and enchanting values, just to name a few.
More importantly, love is a choice that you have to make over and over again.
The choice of:
- share, and
The "more" aspect of "I love you more" is a relative term.
First of all, it is an indication that love has degrees. If more means it can grow, less means it can shrink too. Again,love is something alive. All living things need to be fed to survive and nourished to thrive.
Second, more is a measure, but a measure of what exactly in this context? More than exactly?
"More today than yesterday?"
- "Great. What do you love most about me?"
- “What changed to produce this additional love?”
- Advice:“We know more about each other, share more with each other, and care more for each other.”
- “I need to know so I can keep doing this.”
"More than you love something else, like maybe a chocolate cake?"
- "Why are you comparing me to other things or, even worse, to other people?"
- "Let's keep our love between us."
- “Let's get to know each other more, share more and take care of each other more”.
"More than you think I love you?"
- “Love is something you know from others. It is something you share with others and it is the act of caring for others.”
- "It's collaboration, not competition."
- "It is an insult to me, to love in general, to turn an alliance into a rivalry."
"Or maybe you're taunting me for an answer."
- "Is this an attempt to reach a compromise?"
- “Again, is this a competition you want me to try to best you? No I love you more!"
- “This is manipulation. It's not love at all."
We have to wonder"What is the motivation of this statement?"As you can see above, only one of the four possible reasons is positive. It is up to you to understand "more than".
A word of caution,just as love can increase, it can decrease.People rush to tell you the good news,"My love for you has increased",but rarely will they rush to tell you the bad news.
We don't even consider the phrase"I love you less."We skip all the way to"I don't love you anymore."
So how would you respond to"I love you more?"
"Very cool; tell me more about that."

Reply with funny jokes
This statement is usually made jokingly between couples in romantic relationships.
Every time my wife or I say,"I love you more."The other person usually responds with,"Impossible! But keep trying.
These statements generally do not mean that there is some kind of competition within the relationship.
It can also be an expression of resentment or discontent.
In some cases, a person may say"I love you more"letting your partner know that you don't really feel loved or appreciated.
The person making the statement believes they are doing more to show how much they care about their partner, though they don't see the same effort in return.
There are a variety of reasons why someone might feel this way.
First of all, it could be true. Your partner mayit's notas emotionally invested in the relationship. Perhaps the partner never apologizes for anything or makes the first move to offer a deal. They do or say many things that they need to do to feel loved.
The element of surprise and consideration are considered romantic.
It could be a lack of communication where the person has never shared with their partner what they need to feel loved and appreciated.
Communication is often cited as one of the keys to leading a healthy andsuccessful relationship. However, it goes against the"myth of the soul mate".Consequently, your partner will instinctively know what to do and what to say to please you without you having to ask or say it.
Imagine a wife in a long-term marriage complaining to her husband on Monday because he didn't buy her flowers like he did when they were dating.
On his way home from work on Tuesday, he stops at a flower shop and buys his wife a dozen long-stemmed red roses.The communication is validated as a solution.However, his wife isn't exactly jumping for joy. A part of her resents the fact that she had to ask or tell him about the lack of that romantic gesture.
She didn't just want the roses; she wanted it to be her idea to buy them for her! The wife goes over in her mind all the things she does for him without being asked. She comes to the conclusion:"I love you more."
It is also not uncommon to hear someone say to their partner:
"If you loved me, you would...etc." o
"I shouldn't have to ask or tell you…etc."
Although communication increases your chances of getting what you want, it comes with some resentment that your partnernecessarybe asked.

There are different languages of love.
Several years ago, author Gary Chapman wrote a best-selling book entitled:the 5 love languages. He surmised that there were five different ways that people expressed and interpreted love.
The languages are:
- words of affirmation,
- Quality time,
- physical touch,
- Acts of Service and
- Receive gifts.
At the beginning of most new relationships, there is a crush orhoneymoon phase.
Related:The difference between love and passion.
This is a time when both people strive to please each other and avoid doing or saying anything that might spoil it.
- Whatever one person suggests, the other person will accept.
- The conversations and laughter last for hours.
- Token cards and gifts are given “just because”.
- Each person makes it a top priority to make sure the other person is happy.
- The sex is passionate, spontaneous and off the charts!
Essentially, during the infatuation phase, it's likely that both people spoke all five love languages, and by default, spoke each other's love language. Therefore, neither person is likely to feel that their needs are not being met, regardless of what their love language is.
However, once an emotional attachment exists, people feel safe enough to relax and reveal their feelings."authentic selves"without fear that your partner will leave instantly.
It is at this moment that the couple can know thatdothey really have different love languages.
A “words of affirmation” and “touch” person dating someone who is primarily a “quality time” and “acts of service” person could be in some trouble.
Generally speaking, most people express love the way they want to be loved. It is equivalent to the old saying:"Do with others what you would like them to do with you."
Any time someone feels like they are giving more than they are getting in return, they areprobablethey believe that they really love their partner more.
Let go of the myth of the soul mate
It is unrealistic to expect your partner to be able to read your mind or instinctively know what to do and say to make you feel loved and appreciated.
You have to make your needs and desires known. If you are on the other side of"I love you more"statement and you feel that it is not true, then say so.
“I hope you know that this is not true. Apparently I must have dropped the ball. What am I not doing that would make you feel unloved or less loved?
Communication allows a couple to put everything in their minds and hearts on the table. It is an opportunity for problems to be recognized and resolved.

"I love you more"
This classic romantic response shows that you are not content to accept that your partner loves you more. This shows that you want to compete with your partner to see who can be more loving, which will make them feel loved and appreciated.
It's also a nice way to end the conversation without going around in circles, and it might become a nice habit for one of you to say"I love you more"and the other to answer,"I love you more."
"It's not possible"
Again, this is a romantic response, as it suggests that you can't even imagine your partner loving you more than you love them.
If you answer with the obvious"No you don't"o"I love you more,"gives your partner space to argue, but saying"It's not possible"It's a way to end things with love.
"I am so lucky"
Sometimes when you don't want to go around in circles about how much you love yourself, admit"I am so lucky"is the way to do it.
This allows your partner to enjoy believing that he loves you more andshow that you think he is the right person for you, which is great for their self-esteem and can help them with any insecurities they have about the relationship.
Respond to “I love you more” with actions
Write them a letter expressing your love.
When a short answer isn't enough, a great alternative is to write your partner a letter explaining everything you love about them.
This is something they can come back to when they're feeling down and it will remind them how you feel about them if you're going through a rough patch.
We often express our emotions better when we're not pressured to talk face to face, so a letter is a great way to show your appreciation for your partner and truly say:"I love you more."
Buy them a thoughtful gift
Another great idea is to buy your partner a personal gift to show that you know them well and care about their interests.
It does not have to becaro, sometimes small gifts are the best way to show your gratitude.
One of my clients buys flowers for her partner every Monday, knowing that she is struggling with the new beginning of the week, and this simple gesture reminds her that she isvaluedand that your partner ispaying attention to the little things.
Spend quality time with them.
Finally, there is no better way to show someone that you love them than by spending quality time with them, as shownyou are making an effort to be close to theminstead of just saying you appreciate them.
Some ideas I often give my clients are: go out to dinner together, go on a hike to a new area, spend time with mutual friends, or plan a fun day trip together.

Love Bomb to quickly generate attraction
Love bombing is a narcissist's favorite emotional weapon. It is about flooding a romantic flame with romantic gestures from the beginning of the relationship to quickly generate attraction.
A narcissist might say that they love you more because they always have to get over their feelings.Doing so gives them an emotional advantage that they will exploit later.

Talk about how the two of you feel about each other
If your partner really thinks they love you more than you do, ask them about it. This is the perfect time to talk about your relationship, how you both feel, your sex life, your future, etc.
"I love you more” is a sign that the two of you are well enough to talk about anything. It's aopen invitationto discuss more sensitive matters.
Consider your future with this person.
You are at the bottom. This person believes that she loves you more than you love her, which is emotionally impossible for you.

"I love you more" is not a competition
Históricamente, "Te amo más" es romántico. Es algo que usamos para mostrar cuánto amamos a alguien, e incluso se vuelve competitivo.
It's a challenge to show who cares more about the other person, but beyond the usual "cuteness" of the phrase, why do we need to say that?
Let's look behind the phrase and see what really matters.
- Are we showing?
- Are we meeting our partner's needs outside of this sentence?
- Words of affirmation may be welcome, but what about the other four love languages?
I always encourage my clients to take the Gary Chapman Love Language Test.
You have the opportunity to identify how you prefer to receive love. So we won't need to keep up the competition with"I love you more"because we will know what our partner really needs.
So what if we start responding with"OK"? Would our partner accept a declaration of non-compete?
Instead, how about we show them our love by spending time together, bringing them small gifts as a reminder that we care, giving them a hug, or doing something for them like washing the car?
Think about it.Talk to your partner about what they really need.
Movie buffs know these are lines from Ghost, Jerry Maguire, and Love Actually, respectively.
"You complete me."
"For me you're perfect."
No matter how you say it, hearing "I love you" is important in relationships. The longer you are in a relationship, the more you will want to find a new way to express your undying love and devotion.
Many people have unique ways of telling each other that they love them. But how do you respond when your partner says:"I love you more“?
Do it like the movies do
There's a reason many of you recognized the lines from the previous movie. The lines in the movie are memorable.
Saying them can be a fun and flirty way to respond when someone says they love you more. Why not respond with a quote from Cher in Clueless, replying,"It even seems!"
get over it
If your partner says,"I love you more,"you can replicate with,"No I love you more." My husband and I often outdo ourselves.
Our typical conversations go something like this:
- "I love you."
- "I love you more."
- "I love you more."
- "I love you more."
- "I love you test test test."
Grant; let them love you more
Letting someone love you more is okay. It's a compliment, so it's normal to accept it. So if your partner says that they love you more, you can simply respond with,"OK."
Regardless of how you respond to"I love you more,"revel in the feeling of being loved. And remember, there is no need to apologize for being loved.
After all, as said in Love Story,"Love means never having to apologize."

Don't say something weird; keep calm and enjoy being loved
Hearing your partner say that they love you is a great feeling because you can tell them that you love them too. And when they say that they love you more, it's even better and adorable, but the problem starts when you try to answer that, and no, I love you more, it's not like that.
The first step is not to panic and say something weird. Keep calm and enjoy being loved. There is pressure not to screw up the romantic situation.
Multiple responses are appropriate and help keep the mood romantic, for example.
- "I love you more"Which means you love them more than anyone or anything!
- "I love you more than anything"
- "I love you more than life itself"– Making someone aware that you love them more than your own life is a very sincere feeling.
- "I love you one more"– As much as they love you, you love them a little more!

Try to reassure them by telling them how much you love them.
When you tell someone you love them and their response is"I love you more,"they are trying to send you a message. It is a message that you should listen carefully because it is saying something about them."I love you more"it is a way of disguising what they are really feeling.
What they really mean is:
- "I don't feel like you love me enough"o
- "I want more love from you",o
- "I'm afraid you'll leave me."
But saying any of these directly is too vulnerable and there are too many opportunities to be put down, so they hide their fear inside a nice sentence by saying:"I love you more."
When someone tells you this, the natural response is to try to reassure them by telling them how much you love them. But if they feel insecure, their security will not last. And they will start to feel your fear again.
A better answer is to simply say something like,“When you say 'I love you more', it doesn't feel right. I don't know what you're trying to tell me. Can we talk about that?And then make room to have a real conversation about what you mean when you say:"I love you."

Translate this observation according to the context of the situation and the relationship.
If someone says"I love you more,"it is important to translate this observation based on the context of the situation and the relationship. If it is a new relationship, the intention may be to findlindooplayful.
People in new relationships often test the waters of a serious concept with humor. If so, play along and be silly with each other.
Many relationships these days lackjoke, so any opportunity you get to add some fun to your relationship is likely to make it better.
- If it's a kid trying to prove something, don't compete and let him win. Children often test the limits and try to compete with their parents.
- If the children say"I love you infinite more infinite"you can answer with,"Wow, I feel so happy and loved."
- If they are being playful, again you can be playful with them. First, make sure to find out if they are trying to be serious or funny.
If it's your long-term infant partner, assess whether it's a playful response or one that stems from anxiety.
If they really believe they love you more then:
- be curious,
- Validate your feelings and
- explore the topic.
Say something like,"I feel like there might be more you want to say",it can help someone feel invited to share their deepest feelings of anxiety. If you enter a competition to see who really loves the other person more, or if you take your comment with humor, it's likely to turn you off.

Acknowledge the tenderness of the moment as you respond back.
Give a response that acknowledges the show of affection and echoes it at the same time.
One of my favorite responses to such a statement is,"You may be right, but I don't see how that's possible."
It reminds me of a scene from a movie, one that isn't even remotely romantic, but still relevant at this point.
During a scene in "The Big Short" when Christian Bale's character predicted the housing crash, all the metrics showed that the bottom of the market would fall, but there was no crash.
Someone who worked in his office told him, very cleverly, "Maybe you're wrong."came back with,"You're right. I could be wrong. I just don't see how.
It was a response from a man who trusted what he knew. Finally, crack came and Bale's character, based on a real person, became rich in a very bittersweet way.
Anyway, the answer surprised me because it came from someone who was self-assured but not arrogant.
When someone says something that generous to you, the last thing you want in their response is arrogance, even in jest. Say something like,"I know,"omatarthe moment.
