Do you remember when you told your significant other that you love him/her? It was on a Saturday, wasn’t it? At 10 pm, right? I’m no psychic – just going off a new study that states that couples are most likely to say ‘I love you’ on this day, at that time.
SWNS.com reports that most lovebirds are moved to say ‘I love you’ on Saturday night, according to a study of 2,000 people in relationships.
But of course! By Saturday, we’ve had time to recover from a stressful week at work. We feel relaxed. We may or may not have liquor in our system. Who are we kidding, we probably do. The most cheesily romantic music is playing in the background – Julio Iglesias, Frank Sinatra – hell, we’ve got Bruno Mars on repeat in this piece. Your partner is probably grazing his/her finger over your palm, the silence between you both comforting. The romance in the air is heavy, and one of you decides to takes the leap to say the simple statement that says so much.
SWNS.com also reports that couples are most likely to tell each other ‘I love you’ just before going to sleep at night (which is an indication that the phrase becomes a habit for many partners) and that 41 percent will say it to acknowledge a particularly romantic gesture.
And when it comes to action in the bedroom, couples will also say the three tender words before, during and after. That’s a lot of lovin!
But, please, don’t take this study too seriously. I’m definitely not. At your next Saturday night date, do not, and I repeat, do not stare down your lover as the time creeps closer to 10 p.m. to wait for those words to come out. Those three words hold a lot of power, so they’ll come when the person is ready.
Bottom line is, an ‘I love you’ is an ‘I love you.’ The time for those words can never be more perfect, if it’s genuine.
