What if He Doesn’t Say “I Love You”?
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,
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.
