Me and this guy have been seeing each other exclusively since April. We talk everyday and see each other many times a week. He has said "I love you" to me so far twice. He really likes me and is crazy about me. I tell him that I like him a lot and etc but I never said the words "I love you". Do both parties usually say "I love you" before being official? We have talked a few times about being in a relationship... he wants to be my boyfriend and I'm the one that has him waiting. I was just wondering because if we both say "I love you" to each other, does that mean that we are in a relationship or can we still just be exclusively dating each other..
