So my boyfriend and I started to date since this February (we were best friends from the start of college, so like September-ish). We both go to the same college, and just finished our first year. He is a wonderful person, and treats me very very well, and we completely trust each other. He never really pays any attention to other girls, or makes me feel insecure in any way. However, we haven’t said I love you to each other yet… although it has been 4 months. We started off with, “I really really like you. Do you want to go out with me?” and then never really mentioned it again. But he did say once (before we parted for summer) that he more than just likes me. I do love him, but I don’t want to push things too fast for him. So I am wondering if he does love me. He has planned to go on a vacation with me this august (it’s finalized) and then has made a list of places he wants to go to/ things he wants to do together (some of them are like goals for the long run) and keeps on adding things to the list. He tells me that I make him the happiest guy, and has told his family about me. Today, he said really wonderful things to me on chat (we are staying apart for a bit over summer)
I can paste it:
“My girlfriend (so I) is beautiful. She’s really awesome to date makes you feel really good about yourself. She’s a really a very nice person but really fun too. She’s cool to hangout with and has a good sense of humor. Did I mention how much I respect her work ethic? But she knows how to party too; work hard play hard! It’s pretty awesome. Plus she wants to do something really good with her life it seems. Just saying my girlfriend is pretty great. “
He said all this very fast, in like 30 seconds after we skyped.
He always wants to hug me/ cuddle with me in a very sweet way, buys me flowers on special occasions, likes taking me out on dates. But again, we haven’t said I love you yet…
So I keep on wondering if he has fallen in love with me yet, cause I do love him at this point. We are both abstaining from sex before marriage btw (my choice, but he respects that. We are also each other’s first bf/gf). He always makes sure to say sorry if anything ever upsets me, and never does that again. He never likes to see tears in my eyes, even if it’s from me staring at the computer screen for too long.
Also, will it be weird of me to say I love you at some point? After a very nice evening or something? And do you think he loves me? I feel veery loved around him… I sure do hope he does too.
