Next time she tells you that she loves you, just respond with k. See how she likes it.
Honestly , 2 years is a long time . She either expected more , like a really cute picnic lunch or a dinner date where you could've said those beautiful things to her . Although , a beautiful and lovely text is better than nothing . She should have been a little more appreciative , unless you didn't plan on seeing her today ? Take it easy OP . Definitely have a talk with her and find out the reason for her simple , cold reply . Something doesn't sound right to me . Good luck! And happy 2 year anniversary (:
I keep sentiments for face to face or phone when I can't do face to face. Whether very loving or blowing up. Not everyone believes in doing these sorts if things via text, social networking or chat. Granted, thank you or something other then k is more appropriate, I wouldn't get mad at someone if I did send them something that should really be done in person and I got k back in return, simply because I understand not all people are comfy handling moments like that through text.
Why even text? Maybe she was expecting something a bit more personal.
Why should it matter on how the message was delivered though? I mean, if my boyfriend was to text me a long heartfelt msg on our anniversary, I will be over the moon. I think what OP did was infact very cute. Not all guys pour their hearts out to their girlfriends like that, it's just the usual, "I love you babe". So OP's gf should be happy to have a guy that's not afraid to express his love and how he feels about her without the fear of looking or sounding "pussy whipped". Girls these days just expect too much from their partners and materliasm shouldn't even be an expectation either.
She's obviously getting the D from elsewhere, get over it and move on, ass-clown.
Clearly you did something wrong. Where I'm from, 'K' means a big 'Fuck You'. Or she just doesn't appreciate romance the way people should.
It does not take much effort to come up with some beautiful lines, send them via text, and be done with it. This is why it is never a good idea to do emotional things over text. In my mind, if I mean the world to someone they will find a way to talk to me in person, write me a letter, or even video chat on Skype. It takes more to be that open about your feelings in real life. I would have said 'k' too.
"Heartfelt" and "text" are mutually exclusive in my mind. Want to tell her how your really feel? Pick up the goddamned phone and call her. Texting is nothing but impersonal, so genuine heartfelt messages shouldn't be sent that way. But that's just my humble opinion, and I reserve the right to be wrong.
I might be on my own with this, but I hate talking about important things on the phone. I'm being honest about my emotions but I can't see my boyfriends face to gauge his reaction... If he sent me a text or email telling me that he loved me, I'd be happy. And I can look back at it when I feel down and remind myself that I'm loved. That's my point of view anyway.
Of course, given the digital shift, many people text where one would once have sent a note. Maybe OP was thinking of it like a love letter? Even cheesy sentiments look better in a handwritten letter, granted, but a phone call is fleeting, where even a text can be savoured again and again.
