1. Zefie10 is not a fan of the condescending response.
Awwww, that’s sweet.
2. Ugh, come on, Pigboywonder720. No take backs!
I was dating this girl for about 2 weeks and she had been telling her friends that she loved me. She brought it up to me and and I told her I did not quite feel the same way. After leaving her house that day, she said I love you, and without thinking I said I love you too. After quickly realizing the mistake I made, I turned around and said “wait, no I don’t”. That one did not go over too well.
3. This heartwarming quote from Babe is not an adequate response to a confession of love, according to najing_ftw.
That’ll do, pig.
