Well, this is surprising! A new study shows that more often then not guys will say the big "L" word before the women.

Why don't we do our own little study. In your relationships, who said "I love you" first?

A study found men who profess their love early in a relationship are not to be trusted – and that women actually prefer it when males wait to get serious.

When researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the U.S. questioned 45 men and women, most thought women were first to broach the topic.

But quizzing others about current and past relationships revealed the opposite to be true, with the man saying the phrase first 61.5 per cent of the time.

Men began thinking about professing their love 97.3 days into a relationship – six weeks earlier than women, the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology reports.
