Does Anybody Know?
If you’ve ever been in a relationship and wondered when to say “I love you,” you’re in really good company. There are millions of people, both male and female, who wonder the same thing.
There have been tons of studies done about this very subject—even one done by some guys at MIT. It seems that when to say “I love you” is not only a loaded question, it’s also a question that’s responded to with many differing opinions. Success coach, Doc Love of AskMen.com feels that men should never say it first. Rather, they should wait for the woman to say it first. Eharmony.com says whoever does say it first will likely say it when they’re about 3 – 6 months into a relationship. Others say that guys are likely to feel it first, but girls are usually the first to actually say it.
Anything Worthwhile is Worth Waiting For
Whether you’re wondering when to say “I love you” or wondering if your lover will say it first, it’s always a good idea to take a step back and make sure you’re not jumping the gun. What if you really wanted your guy/girl to say “I love you” and then once they did you suddenly weren’t so sure you were ready to hear it? What if you said it first and you really meant it, but then you panicked and wished you had waited? There’s one thing that’s for sure: Regardless of who says it first, saying the “L” word changes the landscape of a relationship forever.
Professing love too soon can spell disaster for an otherwise promising relationship. Timing is everything. Suddenly you’re not just dating and enjoying each other, you’re in love, and while that may be a good thing normally, saying it too soon can make you aware of all the pressures and expectations that fall on couples in love. Especially in young-love relationships, saying “I love you” seems to be the catalyst that propels a relationships forward. As soon as someone here’s the “L” word they know that there’s more to follow such as meeting families, engagement and marriage. In other words the fun and enjoyment of dating just moved on to pressure. Not sure if you two are going to get serious?

Tardy for the Party
Conversely, hemming and hawing about when to say “I love you” can cause a communication breakdown. There’s a feeling you get that maybe you can say it with little chance of being rejected or having the “L” word unreturned, and if you don’t catch that boat when it’s ready to sail, it may depart without you. If you want it to come back, you better be prepared to say those three magic words and mean them. The “L” word should not be taken lightly. Need a more in-depth look at your love life?
