Who Says "I love you" First

Study examines declarations of love in relationships. The Washington Post

Sometimes it comes out in a rush. Other times it becomes a game of chicken. Regardless, the first spoken “I love you” is a relationship milestone.

Josh Ackerman, a psychologist who teaches at MIT, set out to study these early declarations of devotion. According to his research, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, most people (64 percent) think the woman in a relationship usually says “I love you” first.

The Things Children Say

Our friend Debra Johnson sent us this message about her granddaughter:  “Today was first grade back to school night. I took Gracie, my granddaughter, to meet her teacher.  I tried to not look like a total frump and wore black pants, a nice little summer sweater and a top with metallic embellishment on it. Gracie looked me up and down...inspection I guess, and said, "Nana, are you trying to look all fancy, so people won't realize you are old?" I am going to miss her.
