When to say I love you?

I read an article today from a psychiatrist saying that they believed the earliest you should ever say I love you is six months into a relationship. When is the earliest you have ever said I love you to someone? And if it was before six months, in the future did it turn out to be true, or you later think you were just caught up in being infatuated with someone new?

  • It's interesting. Given that love itself is so hard to define, I feel like trying to make it time bound doesn't really do it justice. I've definitely said it before six months, but I don't recall ever consciously thinking about how long it had been at the time. You'll never know if it truly is love or not, so say it when you've run out of other words to explain how you strongly you feel for someone/something 😊 if you get too caught up on the words themselves it will drive you crazy

  • I say it very easily, I know I can say it even before the relationship, to me it is not a big deal.

    • It's a powerful thing to a lot of people, so I would be careful how you use it. In general society it signifies strong emotional affection and even suggests certain relationship expectations.

  • Second date, about 10 days.
    I was head over heels for her from beginning to end, but it only lasted about a year.

  • I find it true, you've got to have a foundation before committing to someone that might not want that

    • Sorry to hear that, surprisingly something like that was mentioned in the article. It kind of resonated with me and made me really wonder if it was true? About waiting to use I love you until after a designated time.

    • Yeah as crappy as it is I think you hit the nail on the head. Of course there are instances where general rules don't apply, but if she told you to move on there's a good chance you came to the right conclusion about the situation.

    • yep yep, thanks for the confimation though lol. still waiting on someone that fits my wants in a partner

  • First date and we have been together 6 years and married 2 years
