What if He Doesn’t Say “I Love You”?

i love youSandy,

I’ve been dating Josh for three months. He’s good-looking, smart, and most importantly, treats me with respect. I’ve had a tough dating and relationship history. I was engaged to a guy who never followed through with his promises and broke off the engagement. I was married to a man who cheated. I’ve beenfollowing your great advice, and I now love and respect myself so much more. Because of that, I’ve been able to slowly develop this wonderful relationship. I don’t want to mess things up. Here’s the problem: Josh has never said “I love you”. I feel that he really cares, but I’d feel so much better if I heard those words. Am I being silly or insecure? Or should I be concerned if he doesn’t say those three magic words?

Thanks so much,
Ginny

Dear Ginny,

Congratulations on your relationship with Josh! This sounds like your first truly healthy relationship. Do you have a reason to be concerned if he doesn’t say, “I love you” after a three month courtship? It sounds like you’re ready to confess your love, but he may not be on the same page.
