We’ve been together six months.
He says it during and also confessed how much I meant to him while he was drunk... but that’s it does he mean it
I kind of feel like he’s waiting for me to say it first.
One time during he kept telling me to tell him I love him but I couldn’t.
Yesterday he says it again and I told him he only says it during sex... and he finally said it after sex twice. now today when we hung up the phone he said it again. But I feel like it doesn’t count because I had to say something for him to say it... am I overthinking it?
People that are under the influence are saying a number of things they don't mean only because the brain gets numbed and reasoning is temporarily paralyzed.
Also, when people feel happy, they tend to express themselves very positively and saying "I love you" when having sex is no indicator that the feeling is always present. When the brain produces a lot of dopamine, the "feel good" hormones, one tends to say things that one would normally not when in full control and the dopamine is not tampering with the brain and emotions.
Now, he says it because you motivated him to say it but I am still not sure whether it is really meant or he just says it to keep you quiet.
Yes the last part is what I’m trying to figure out.
Thank you for your reply !
