Grace to you and peace from God and The Lord Jesus Christ!
Friends, I have just begun a relationship with a woman for about a month now that I am a bit head over heels for lol, however it has come to my attention that I have had to hold back on professing my love for this particular girl.
She wants to take it slow however already has made promises to never leave, cheat on me, etc. It sounds like she loves me, but she hasn't uttered that phrase yet.
I "accidently" told her a week ago and she didn't say it back. I was disappointed because every girl I've had a relationship with has said it too, and it took me by surprise. I haven't said it since, and waiting for her to say it.
As a male, I like to be assured. I don't want to have doubts, she talks about how I have her and all this stuff, but then she says if we ever lose feelings for one another we should tell each other so no one gets hurt, but obviously if I have feelings and she loses them well I would get hurt, and vice versa.
I said "I love you" prematurely, I was caught up in the moment we were sharing and I didn't know until she was in the hospital for the past week. I know in my heart I do, and for me it's a choice, it means "always" "I tie myself to you" "never never give up" etc.
But she has been taking these baby steps and not going to far with it and doesn't want to be pushed away. And a guy like me I carry my heart on my sleeve and want to tell her how much she means to me and get all gushy over her, but I feel that might deter her. She's not used to being treated as good from anyone else or getting all these romantic sayings and gesstures, and I make her extremely happy.
Not sure what I am doing wrong that she hasn't said it yet, I'm much too impatient I suppose, but how will I know if she does?
