Love after one month of dating
(Also, not really.)"The “I love you” part actually shouldn’t have been complicated, in that I did love the guy.
I mean, why should I when it worked so incredibly well?
Given that most people probably are still infatuated (read: "crushing") after a month or two, I don't think it's fair to say that you're "in love" in that time period. I fell for my boyfriend roughly a month after we started dating, but, to be fair, we would talk for hours and hours everyday (we were both unemployed so we had a lot of time on our hands x D ), so that was bound to happen since we spent much more time getting to know each other than a normal dating couple would.
The average number of dates with a new partner was two a week, which means that a large amount of people are saying “I love you” during week seven of their relationship.
Is it just me or does seven weeks seem incredibly fast to tell someone you love him/her? (Except, ohmygod, do not.)Other things the study found: I think we’re all in agreement that these polls are fairly meaningless when it comes to our personal preferences.
I told him that later on in the relationship that I suspected he was going to say it that night and he swore he didn’t plan it that way, but he wasn’t the first boy I dated to subscribe to that timeline and, well, he probably won’t be the last -- assuming I can find a dude who gets off on dating an emotionally damaged girl.
Apparently however, I made up the three-month rule because according to an article in the Daily Mail about seekingarrangment.com’s survey* of 100,000 British members, the average time for telling a partner “I love you” is after 14 dates.
We went to dinner at my favorite French restaurant (ooh la la) and drank wine. I vaguely remember also going to the bar next door afterward, so needless to say I was not behaving very responsibly for a school night. What I do remember is lying there in the dark, our faces very close to each other, and him saying, “I love you.”Honestly? He was an amazing, kind, caring, funny, and generous dude. The thing that’s funny is, I knew he was going to say “it” that night.
Eventually we called it and headed back to my apartment where I’m sure I barely managed to wash my face and brush my teeth before climbing into bed. In fact, I was pretty sure he was “The One.” So I did what any girl in my position would do: I said, “I love you, too.” Then pretended in the morning like I’d blacked out and didn’t remember any of it. After all, I’ve always been told that you have to wait exactly three months before proclaiming your love.
I believe that there is such thing as love at first sight, but for some people, it takes years to actually become love. If you're confident and sure of it, that's wonderful! Well, I fell for my husband the first time I hung out with him, and I was attracted to him the first time I saw him, but I can't speak for everyone. =PDear Unsurevirgin : I am so glad that you have a boyfriend that loves you, and that you have been together for a year. My case is a little out of the ordinary, I met my girl/boyfriend online back in February, February 7th, to be exact, we will have been going together for five months, this coming Sunday.
I believe that there is such thing as love at first sight, but for some people, it takes years to actually become love. If you're confident and sure of it, that's wonderful! We are both inter-sexed women, I found out from Rikki, We just started e-mailing each other, and found out that he and I have so much in common, it is so amazing. I know I'm a bit late to this thread but, if someone told me that they loved me after two months of dating, I'd probably see it as infatuation and not love.
After all, a guy may *think* he loves me after Week 7, but no one should make that kind of statement until after he’s experienced a 49ers’ loss with me. I mean, I’ve had third dates where the first kiss was also the first time we’ve had sex.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
