When was the first time he said “I love you”? Hmmm…let me think. Oh my! I think I missed this time. I can’t remember at all. All I remember is a common friend told me that he likes me. That was the reason why he’s walking with us everyday from Strata 2000 in Ortigas to Megamall while he can ride a bus in Robinson’s Galleria going home to Cubao. He was not telling me a word so when he called one night, I teased him that I know that he likes me. He was hesitant to admit it at first but he gave in before we ended the conversation. He courted me from then on.
After a month he said I love you then handed me a ring and asked me to marry him. “What? Are you nuts? We are dating for just a month!” I am just kidding. There was no such violent reaction. Of course I was flattered. I was not ready yet so I said no but I accepted the ring, lol! then the rest are history.
It’s the first I love you that I remember but I am pretty sure it is not the first time he said that.
