Six months dating
I think that saying "I love you" is just a phrase, and people get too hung up on it.Six months is a very short time in a relationship, you're still getting to know each other.Mason has been practising what she preaches though, and this month, the relationship expert got engaged - after just four months of dating.“Normally dating experts find the love of their lives and then tell everyone how they did it,” she admitted.Another possible redflag is that he rarely talks about our future, he says he can see us moving in together soon but that's about it.
If you don't know how to keep the spark alive after six months of dating how on earth do you expect to keep it going in a marriage?
He would only say it when he is absolutely certain that he is in love, and his definition of love is that he has to prioritize the other person's happiness above his own.
(Personally I think his definition is a little bit strict, but I suppose I can understand) He says that at the moment he's not concerned about whether we are in love, all he cares about is that we spend a lot of time together.
I may be a little jaded too because my ex-husband said "I love you" all the time but his actions didn't indicate it so much, so at the end of the day, they're simply words that mean nothing without the actions to support it. I have only said it to two women in my entire life, and both were about the 6 to 7 month mark.
My current SO has not said it to me, we've been dating for almost a year now, but all of his actions indicate to me what "love" would represent, so I am not as concerned that he hasn't said the words. Everything he does and what he represents feels like what love is supposed to be. For me saying the L word is pretty serious and I don't just throw it around unless I mean it.
