Is there truly a right time to say "I love you"? It can be stressful trying to figure out where your relationship stands and if it is the right time. The worst case scenario is having either one of you not feel that way--you don't want to say I love you if you or your partner really aren't ready. Here are signs that it's the right time to say those three little magic words.
You know the feeling. Your stomach is a flutter and a ball of excited nerves. You can't eat, you can't sleep, and all you want to do is be with your significant other. This is your body's way of saying you're excited--go for it. Roll with that feeling of pure happiness and know it's time.
You're not even scared to say these words because of your true feelings. If you don't end up getting the same response that they love you too, you don't even care because that's what love is all about--not wanting anything in return.
You feel strongly about your special someone, so what excuse do you have to not say "I love you"? You've spent so much time with them already that you can't deny these feelings. It's just a matter of time before the words come out of your mouth because you can't contain these feelings any longer.
You're not expecting a single bad thing to happen, and the thought of them not saying the same back to you isn't a thought. If you don't get that response, and you think that the worst will happen, like ending up all alone, then you probably aren't ready just yet.
There's nothing that can stop you. You literally want to shout it from the mountains and profess your love. This uncontrollable urge has to be love. But, if this isn't you, you might not be ready.
There's many approaches on how to bring up your feelings, but how you word it should give you the sign if you're ready or not. If you're just saying it because you've been together for a while, or you're saying it in response, those are big red flags. You should say it without any apprehension and unsettling feelings, and should say it with excitement!
Trust is a huge thing in a relationship. You trust them to not cheat, you trust that they'll keep their word, and you trust that they'll put you above everything else in this world. It may sound extreme, but if you can't trust this person with your life, they honestly don't deserve your love.
It's time to take a step back and evaluate your relationship. If it's too soon or too late, your relationship could change drastically if you're not on the same page. Conversation is key--how did you know it was time to say those three magic words? Comment below!
