How long does it take you develop feelings for your boy/girlfriend? I met the guy I've been seeing on a dating app and didn't have any expectations initially. We've gone on lots of dates, usually last half day or more, and we've have PDA/kissed/sex-all of which have been great. Over about a month and a half I've started developing feelings for him. In the first few weeks, he asked if I was interested in him b/c I guess I was a little closed off. I haven't really dated, so I'm trying to avoid over/under sharing, but he's expressed interest in really getting to know me. Is 1.5 months normal to realize you genuinely like someone and any tips on how to show him my growing feelings?

Trust me when I say that there is no template for how long it takes to feel something. I've had a range of time in relationships where it took a few months, or a few weeks. If you feel something and he reciprocates, there should be few barriers to sharing how you feel. Try not to overthink it and just let it happen. You will open up as you need. Try not to overthink it.1

Precisely 37 days and 6 hours.
Seriously, there's no time scale on these things. Don't know why everybody expects it. When it happens, it happens, but it's safe to say if it hasn't happened in years it won't happen.
1.5 months is cool, lots of people would take longer. Just tell him you like him more if you want him to know lol "you know, I'm liking you more and more over time, and am really feeling more comfortable with you"
It's normal. Anybody who feels everything all at once at the start, they often end up hurt, because they're putting all their eggs in one basket, and the basket is that of an asshole.1
