How long did it take you to say the L word?

I've been dating this guy for a little over a month now and I really love him. And I want to say it, but I think it might be to soon for him. I've never really taken it slow so this is different for me. And I want him to say it first, but I'm not sure I can wait that long.

  • I told my boyfriend I loved him after only being with him for a month then about a month later I took it back cuz I wasn't sure I really meant it and it really hurt him, but luckily we worked it out and we've been together almost 4 years, and I love him very much

  • I waited one week lol. And we are madly in love married with a beautiful daughter. Just feel it out first. you dont want to jump into it bc it can totally freak him out. So just try and ffigure out in a sly way whether or not he feels the same

  • My DH told me he loved me after only 3 days! ...and i told him never to say it to me agian until he meant it! lol. ...yea. i was kind of a b*tch. LOL.
    Then he said it again about 4 days after that. in one week. But i didnt say it back until the following week. so for me it took 2 weeks.
