I'm curios how far into your last (or present) relationship did you say "I love you". I wonder if it takes longer to say as we get older and if so, why do you think that is? I long did (or has) your "I love you" relationship last?

I'm currently to figure out whether to say I love you - I know I do, have done for a while, but don't want to push it! Can imagine it going down the same way as Prettygurl12. Likewise, it's just over 6 months, but I almost blurted it out about 3 months into knowing her.
We're long-distance, but holding back on my feelings in case I scared her away before ended up with her sleeping with another guy at her first experience of drinking alcohol. That actually hurt me more than I expected, really disappointed me and it still angers me sometimes now. Almost cut myself off from her then and there but something told me to let it slide. Second time she "partied" she touched up some other lads, but recalls none of it and all-but broke down to me about it.
Told her after that that it was going to be three strikes and she's out; the second incident doesn't bother me but the first one still does for some reason. I've waited 22 years for the right girl, and I'm pretty sure I've now found her; I'll get over the first occasion in time.
If I let her know I love her soon, I'll get back to you on how she responds. :)
I don't think it takes longer to feel it as you get older, but saying it? For the sake of trying to be cautious with more serious relationships, probably it does take a little longer to say it, yes, I think.0
