When to Say “I Love You”

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.

When to know if love is real love is the problem with one-on-one relationships, and sometimes we say we love when we’re not even really sure or alternatively because we’re afraid to be alone. This was an assigned article – but I personally write about this stuff often. Thanks for sharing your comment – I welcome them all, and I like to get the convo started. You’ll be seeing more from me on relationships, so stay tuned. Thank you
