Why do some men feel the urge to say “I love you” so soon? I’ve always been the type to wait to say those three little words. I don’t like rushing into things and I want to make sure that what I’m feeling is love and not just lust. What I don’t understand is why so many men that I’ve dated seem to say “I love you” entirely too soon. How can they be sure that it’s love? Do they even realize what they are saying? Do they really mean it or is it just the lustful passions overwhelming them and clouding their minds? Are they just trying to get into my pants? Or am I just continually dating the wrong kinds of men? Those are all questions that I wish I knew the answers to.
I don’t think that anyone can fall in love after only one or two dates. Falling in love is supposed to take time, right? I never really believed in love at first sight either. Maybe that has something to do with why I don’t understand why men keep telling me that they love me so soon after starting to date them. There are so many “maybe”s involved that it just confuses me more.
When men say “I love you” to me too soon in a relationship it scares me. It’s not that I don’t want them to ever say it, I just want them to say it at the right time and in the right way. I’ve written before that there are two things that you should never say to a woman in bed, “I love you” and “Will you marry me?” Those two things should be said not only out of bed, but also never over the phone or via text message. Say it when you’re looking the person in the eyes, and not in a horizontal position.
This is also covered in my list of 10 things that turn me off. It’s number 9 on the list: “Men that tell me they love me within the first three months of dating.” There’s just something about it that doesn’t sit well with me. I’ve read that it’s acceptable to say “I love you” after the first three months of a relationships. I found a couple of articles online that give some good information on this subject:
- When to say “I love you”
- The right time to say the ‘L’ word: love

That’s all I have to say for tonight. I have my second date with EB tomorrow. I’ll let you know how it goes. I’ve talked to him a lot more on the phone this week and we’re getting to know each other a lot better. It’s weird though how when I’m dating someone new, as they tell me things I am constantly having weird thoughts going through my head. I wonder about things like if he’s being honest, if we’re really compatible, if he’s talking about certain things a lot because he has issues that will hinder our relationship, if we have enough in common to take us beyond the bedroom, or am I just being too analytical?
Good night & happy humping!
