As I was sitting on the porch I had this thought and wonder if anyone else has experienced it. Have you ever noticed that saying good-by on the phone when speaking to a wife or girlfriend is not easy if you do not say I love you when ending the conversation. Not just saying I Love you but if she says it ten times you must rely I love you ten times. Isn’t once enough? Try just saying it once if she says is again before hanging up. There will be a long silence and then she will say don’t you love me or she will use you’re proper name. Like Jonathan when you have be John during most the conversation. As a man I feel that one I Love you when hanging up should be enough. But I usually say it several times when ending the phone call with my wife.
It is usually in response to her I love you. Do not get me wrong I love her dearly, but how many times when hanging up is the proper number of time. I do not want her to think the wrong thing. It is the same with I miss you. Shouldn’t once be enough I mean what I say when I say it. But I love her so much I will say it as many times as needed.
