My boyfriend and I have been together for more than a year. He never said the words 'I love you'. Am I right to assume it's because he simply doesn't love me? He said he is wary of women after a bad divorce. He cooks for me and does me favors, cuddles a lot and tries to please me in bed., and is even letting me stay at his house for an extended period of time, and spending Christmas and New Year together. I love him and wish that he loved me too, but I feel hopelessness and am afraid he's been stringing me along for over a year. I told him I would do anything for him, and he just said 'I know'.
I love him regardless.
