When should I tell my BF I love him? We are 22 and 24
We have known each other for over a year now. Casually dated for 4 months then I had 2 move away & we called it off. I moved back 4 months later. Neither of us dated anyone while I was away, nor did we keep in contact. When I came back I hit him up, We started hanging out for 2 months but he was being really flaky like bailing weekly 4 whatever excuse. I vented & he said he would step up 2 the plate. & we then again casually dated 4 3 months but during this 2 of the 3 months we started 2 hook up 4 the first time w/ each other. Now we r officially BF & GF (even tho the whole time we dated we never dated anyone else I guess we were just taking it slow).
I really am into this guy.. & I have had real troubles in the past with like knowing someone is going 2 be there 4 me & likes me 4 who I am etc. & I like him so much that I pretty sure that I love him. I think about him all the time, he makes me smile. I get excited 4 the texts I get throughout the day from him, when I can make him smile, being in his presence. But when is it okay 2 drop the L bomb? He says he like me a lot & wants us 2 last a long time & for us 2 work. So does he maybe feel the same?
