DON'T-KNOW - Jun 15 2014 at 14:05
On my way to Florida I told my boyfriend that I had to go because the plane was about to take off. I told him goodbye and I'll miss him and I didn't mean to but I said Love you. I sent a text right after saying I didn't mean to say that. We've only been dating for about 3 months and so I was freaking out. He then sent a text saying "Freudian slip of the century! Love you too!" I was happy but worried that I made him say that. People told me that I didn't force him to say it but just yesterday after being on the trip for 4 days he sent me a Facebook message saying that he didn't like saying the word love because he doesn't want to be wrong. He said saying it made our relationship weird. I told him I understand and that I was terribly sorry for saying it and then he changed the subject. Does this mean that he doesn't think our relationship is going to last? I know this is teenage bullshit drama but I do really like this guy and I'm freaking out about this whole thing.
Stop freaking out.
Do you love him? Why did you freak out and take it back..... ? why would you be sorry if it is true?
It is possible that he does not want to get hurt either,you did take it back? It is possible too.
It is perfectly fine to be still getting to know each other and like each other at this stage. Slow down and tune into each other and enjoy the moment.
I don't really understand why that is an issue.
You're boyfriend and girlfriend right? What does that mean to you? Doesn't that mean you do LOVE each other? If not why are you both in a relationship? Why obfuscate what you two think about each other? I can understand perhaps not wanting to be lovey dovey, but that seems crazy.
If saying "I love you" Makes your relationship weird, then is it a relationship? You should both have confidence in your feelings towards each other. Does he hold the attitude of only saying he loves to the true person he will always be with? If so, I don't think he'll be loving anyone, very easily. Since people go through many relationships in their life, thinking they are all "the one" Is nice, but it's more often than not, not the reality.
However, I think he does love you, since he said it back. He's probably just not comfortable with expressing his feelings, perhaps he's shy to it?
With that in mind, that he said it back and seemingly meant it, then I don't think you have much to worry about. He seemed delighted you said it, in that text anyway.I think he's just shy in expressing his feelings, as some men are it seems.
Good luck with your relationship and have a wonderful day. :)
