I posted a message a few months ago about my issue with my boyfriend who is wonderful in every way but has never said I love you.
As well as uncovering the secret of the six month rule, with 31 per cent stating they would kiss their date immediately, compared to just 27 per cent who would say the same for holdings hands.
A further third (34 per cent) revealed they would wait between one and two weeks to holds hands.
With that experience in the bag, I think I just assumed as a young woman still learning about love, that it wouldn’t take too long or too much the next time around. In my next relationship, after the emotionally pressed ex, I said “I love you” first, and it was probably the worst idea ever.
I say that because once the words are said, the pressure is on.
Update: We have been officially together for 10 months, dating for 1 year and 3 weeks, and he still hasnt said I love you. I didnt say I love you, but told him that I was unsure how exactly he felt about me.
We had been through hell and high water together–a vindictive ex of mine on campus, his constant acquisitions of female friends that unintentionally started drama–and like most men do in the beginning, he pursued me to no end to be his girlfriend. He said “I love you” faster than those talking dolls from back in the day, and when he said it, we were just talking again after a break up, and had been doing so for maybe a month?
But once the relationship got going fast, things seemed to be moving a little too slow. It came out so fast that I didn’t feel it in return and wound up lying and saying it back, only to retract it like a jerk.
In a thread of mine I'm too lazy to seearch for, much less link too, someone opined that six months is too long to wait for sex in a dating relationship. So I ask you: how long is too long to wait for the first two-backed-beast making?
Do you make any allowances for a person's special circumstances? I'd have to do all the options for gay and straight and bi and male and female and transsexual and frankly I can't be bothered.
