After a really great first date I went on a second one with this guy. On Date #2 we discovered we both really like talking about politics. At this point he said "I think I love you". His tone sounded humourous but as you can imagine hearing that on date #2 sounds pretty weird. nothing else he did that night (or on the first date) would be labelled as desperate, creepy or coming on too strong which is why I am very confused. What do you think? He was jokingly saying it or should I let him down?
What should I make of this situation?

Sounds like a confession of attraction-not obsessive long term, down on one knee kinda love.
In English we really have a limited vocabulary where the one word 'love' is used to describe many different states, degrees and types of affection.
I love my pet, my brother, mother, daughter, magazine, a sunrise and gum. None of them I 'love' in the same way, or to the same degree.
I fell in love with a gal last night. But the kind of love where you find someone similar who is intresting, attractive and easy to talk to. I feel strongly attracted to her but not in a super deep way- not the kind of love where you cannot be without that person. Just a wow she's amazing.
She unfortunately put up an emotional wall because 'all guys are players' 😒and I suspect I will have to do many hurdle jumps to put her at ease and show her I want a companion, not just sex and run. But I digress.0

Omg. He was joking. I say that a lot when a person and I really connect on a subject and I always mean it in a joking way...0
