[rebelmouse-image 18346788 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

If you ever find yourself in a relationship, either with a significant other or with a child, there will come a day when you will have to come up with an answer to THE question. No, not "what do you want for dinner?" even though that question will haunt you for all eternity. One Reddit user, who is clearly facing THE question asked:

What is the best answer to "How much do you love me"?

Honestly, we expected a lot of fluff - and we got it. But more than that, we learned things... like that five-year-olds totally have the best answers to this question.

All The Dinosaurs

[rebelmouse-image 18346789 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My five-year-old told me last week "I love you more than a hundred million stegosauruses."

I felt pretty great about that.

More But Less

[rebelmouse-image 18346790 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

More than yesterday, but less than tomorrow.

Forty-Two

[rebelmouse-image 18346791 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My husband once said, "I love you so much. Lots and lots. Like $42 worth." I started laughing and was just like, "Well at least there's a price on our marriage."

Kanye

[rebelmouse-image 18346792 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"I love you more than Kanye loves Kanye"

Possibilities Are Endless

[rebelmouse-image 18346793 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

As much as I possibly can.

Fries And Cups

[rebelmouse-image 18346794 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Why do you think I asked for a jumbo order of fries and two dipping cups?

Side To Side

[rebelmouse-image 18346795 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Never asked that but my mom used to tell us when we were younger that she loved us this much puts her index and thumb really close together and say "from this side all around the world to this side", gonna call my mom now

Ulterior Motives

[rebelmouse-image 18345395 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Around my house, it's, "Why? What do you want?" Because usually my kids ask this right before asking for something I REALLY don't want to do.

Bad Mood, Good Answer

[rebelmouse-image 18346798 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My boyfriend was once in a bad mood and said "enough".... But i kinda like that answer, because no matter what happens we love each other enough.

Turk

[rebelmouse-image 18345785 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I love you more than Turk.

A Bus

[rebelmouse-image 18346799 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I said to my ex: ''as big as a bus'', which she thought was endearing because she had never been given a phisical size she could picture before. Always the stars and forever and such by other guys.

We were together 12 years, most of those OK.

On The Spot

[rebelmouse-image 18346800 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"So much that I'd never put you on the spot by asking you the same question."

Gummy Worms

[rebelmouse-image 18346801 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My wife asked me this not long after we first said we loved each other.

I thought for a long moment.

"A million gummy worms stretched out end to end."

That was the first time I made her laugh so hard she cried.

Overdosing On Love

[rebelmouse-image 18346802 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

If you could overdose on love, I'd already be dead

A Good Number

[rebelmouse-image 18346803 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Whenever my girlfriend asks that I just respond:

"7"

Yes

[rebelmouse-image 18346804 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Give them a straight faced sideways glance, then look down at the floor with a serious expression, then shift your gaze to the roof with a look of confusion, nod to yourself after a moment and finally look back towards them and say, "yes."

Everyone Loves Cake

[rebelmouse-image 18346805 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

More than a fat kid loves cake.

Make Like A Tree

[rebelmouse-image 18346806 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Tree-fiddy

Metric System

[rebelmouse-image 18346807 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A metric f*** ton

That's An Intense Answer

[rebelmouse-image 18346808 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My wife knows better than to put me on the spot like that. Here's an example of what she's seen me do when people ask me about my love for my wife:

"I knew from the moment I saw her that the one truest, most impressive accomplishment in my life would be to earn just a smile from her. When I stop and remember that she not only smiled, but wanted me, dated me for ten years then married me, which I do twice a day on average, I feel like I won a lottery, ate at a five star restaurant, and parachuted out of a plane all onto my own personal island. I can't find the right words to describe how amazing she is, and how much I love every part of her, but I never stop looking for those words because I feel like the whole world suffers because they can't feel the same level of joy that I do."

People don't generally ask me twice.

Foreigners Break Down Their Favorite American Meals

Growing up, I had zero idea that the food I ate daily was "cultural."

It didn't occur to me until I was a kid when my mother had to gently explain to me that not everyone ate rice & beans.

She had to explain it because we were about to eat at a white friend's house for the first time.

People Share The Best Ways To Politely End A Conversation

Have you ever been caught in a conversation you didn't want to be in? Or start talking to someone only to realize you want to stop? Perhaps you were talking to a friend when the conversation took a turn for the uncomfortable.

Whatever the case, we've all been in those situations where we want the conversation to stop, but don't want to be rude.

When I was in third grade, I asked if I voted on American Idol that week. I said yes, since everyone seemed to, but of course I didn't know what American Idol was. Being pop culture challenged, I thought it was a ship. Needless to say everyone was confused when I was asked who I voted for and I replied, "What do you mean? I voted for American Idol!"

It didn't take me long to realize something was amiss, and I probably would've very rudely excused myself from the conversation (fueled by my embarrassment) if my teacher hadn't called us to attention at that very moment.

Luckily, the people of Reddit were willing to share their methods to politely end a conversation when Redditor Spritti33asked:

"How does someone politely end a conversation with a person who won't stop talking?"
