Does anyone really know when the perfect time is to say "I love you" in a new relationship? Is it after a few dates? A month? A year? There's no set time limit and you shouldn't give yourself one either. There is no logic to the emotion of love sometimes and saying "I love you" should be guided purely by your heart and emotions. Only you will know when the time is right. If you have a strong affection for one another, love is often not far behind! Once you realize that you truly do love your partner, don't waste any time letting them know it!Saying "I Love You" for the First Time
If you're ready to say "I love you", here are some tips to help guide you:
- Choose a quiet, intimate moment so your partner can hear you.
- Say it in person for the first time rather than the phone, email, text, etc.
- Be sober when you say it or your partner will doubt your sincerity.
- Say it as you touch. The physical touch combined with the magic of the words bring out the sparks. Gently stroke your partners face or hold his/her hands.
- Make eye contact. As you say "I love you", look your partner straight in the eye. This show the seriousness and sincerity of the words.
- Be sincere and make sure that you truly mean it when you say it. These powerful words hold so much weight in a relationship that they shouldn't just be thrown around.
- Practice. It's completely normal to be nervous before saying "I love you" for the first time. If you're tongue tied and not sure how to move forward, try saying it in a foreign language so that your partner doesn't understand what you're saying. This will let you practice and test it out before saying how you truly feel.
