Nigerians know just about the best response to any situation, be it awkward or not. Talking about awkward, having to reply to someone you don’t love, when he/she says ‘I love you’, put awkwardness on a whole new level. This is the case, especially if you care about the person’s feeling and don’t want to hurt them.
So, someone took to social media to ask what the best response to ‘I love you’ is, from someone you don’t love? and the responses from @Giditaffic followers will leave you in stitches.

‘Awwww… thank you’ (without forgetting the smile emoticon.. it’d douse the disappointment).

It is a compliment and the civilized response is “Thank You”. It doesn’t matter whether you like the person or not. Love itself is not so much about saying “I love you” but much more about acting and demonstrating in practical terms that I do.

This one right here sounds a bit tricky because saying ‘thank you’, might be the civilised thing to do but you might just be crushing someone emotionally or what do you think?
