We've both been hurt and it took us a year of dating to say I love you to each other. He's always shown me love by his actions. In January he said it first, but that's basically the end of it. He does not say it. If I say it he says back semi reluctantly. I know he loves me, and his way of showing me through action is better I think, but I think hearing it is good too. I asked him about it and he says he'd rather show me than say it... I love that, but I want to hear it occasionally.

so if he shows you then you don't "need" the words. Some people have a problem saying them others can say the words but not show you like he has done. Just relax, actions speak louder than words.1
