Ok so is there right time to say I love you in the dating world?
I mean is it more acceptable if you've known each other for a few years, you decide to date and then a few months later you say you love them? Or does it not make any difference how long you've known them cause when you know you know?
My now ex boyfriend said I love you after knowing me for a month. We weren't friends before hand! I mean we'd only just met. Then there's pressure to say it back and that if you don't you could offend or upset them.
So is there a too soon or not soon enough?

Another subjective answer for a complicated question: The right time in my opinion is when you feel the emotion of love rather than the pressure of there to be love. In other words, if you’ve been dating someone for a month and you’re confident in your interpretation of your feelings and you suddenly realize you love the one you’re with, then by all means tell them that you love them. Why? Because you never know what the future may hold and I for one would not want someone to doubt how I felt about them if something was to happen to me.
Life is way too short in my belief to leave such things unsaid. We aren’t promised tomorrow to live or even the next five minutes. We only really have the here and the now to experience this life and to share such life with those we love and the people around us. So if you love someone. Tell them you love them. It doesn’t matter if they don’t say it back to you right then and there or if it takes them longer to come to terms with their own personal feelings about you. What matters is you let that person know how you felt, and for such you are to be commended. Not everyone gets the chance always to say those last three words before they are gone from this world, therefore, never leave for tomorrow what you can do right now.
That’s the bottom line.1

You can say you love someone plenty of times but if you don't show you love them then the words are meaningless. Sorry, I'm being philosophical right now. Anyway, I'd say wait a few dates or so before you say it.1
