8 Signs You Should Say “I Love You” To Your Boyfriend Now

Saying “I love you” is a huge step in a romantic relationship. Often you know that you love someone long before you say the words to them… it just takes a while because you’re too afraid to be vulnerable. It’s okay to be scared – admitting your feelings can be a completely nerve-racking experience. That last thing you want is to look deep in your SO’s eyes, say, “I love you,” and see a wave of panic rush over their face.


There are some wrong times to say, “I love you” as well. You shouldn’t say it as a way to manipulate the other person into doing something for you. *tsk tsk* Also, avoid saying it before, after, or during sex (I’ve made that mistake) because it usually makes seem less sincere. Be wary of saying it too soon into a relationship as well, as it could be lust and not love that is doing the talking!


With all of those rules, it can be hard to figure out when you should actually say it! If you feel it, you should go ahead and confess those three magic words. Some women feel like they have to wait for the guy to say it first.  Come on, ladies! There are actually no rules, guidelines, or gender roles you need to follow when expressing your true feelings to the person closest to you. As long as it’s honest and said without the expectation of getting a response back, say it.

Still not sure? Here are some signs that you should take the plunge and express your love to your SO:
