My boyfriend and I have been together for 1 year and 5 months. I love him, but am confused as to where I stand with him. He hasn't said he loves me. He is a gentleman, caring, affectionate, attentive and treats me like gold. He makes me so happy! We both enjoy the time we spend together and always make plans for another date. I have met his entire extended family on two occasions and his parents and he has met mine. He says I'm an important part of his life and I am special to him, but no I love you yet. I don't want him to say anything he's not comfortable with, but I also want to know where we stand. His actions say he loves me, but I am wondering if it's just that he cares deeply about me. He recently invited me to his birthday party with his extended family too, which I am very excited for. We made plans to go on the Gateway Clipper for his birthday and he said he was really excited. I love him, but just don't get it. Will he ever love me back? Any thoughts would be appreciated! PS: I don't want to say it first because I don't want to risk messing up what we already have if he doesn't feel the same way yet.

Maybe you should just go ahead and say it, just so that the door is open for him to say it! It's possible that he's also nervous to say it, in fear that you don't feel the same way. And, when you tell him, you could make sure he knows that you don't expect him to say it back, but that you just wanted him to know how you feel! If you've already met a lot of his extended family, it would seem to me that he, at the very, very least, cares about you very deeply and plans to keep the relationship going for a while.0
