My boyfriend and I have been dating for 6 months. Prior to us dating, we had an online "relationship" (never officially called that though) which lasted about one year. I feel myself almost letting "I love you" slip all of the time now. He's a bit insecure and shy which makes it hard for me to tell if I should say it or not. For one thing, his actions really do make me feel that he loves me and has been feeling the same. On the other hand he has a hard time opening up and I don't want to overwhelm him by saying it too soon. I also wonder if I should wait for him to say it first... Any advice appreciated!
