I'm in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend for 3 months. He's very caring and loving but in these 3 months we were actually together for only 20days. We talk daily, text, videocall and yesterday during an argument he told me that he would never do anything yo hurt me because he loves me and respects me. This was through text. He never said he loves me before and i haven't either. I didn't say it back and i went on talking about the things we were discussing before. I'm not sure whether he really meant it or it was in the heat of conversation. He always says he cares deeply about me and i'm the girl of his dreams and sweet stuff like that but never that he loves me. Should i ask him if he meant it for real? How do i ask something like that? Did i hurt him with my reaction of saying nothing in response when he said he loves me?
