How soon is too soon when it comes to saying 'I Love You?"
Those three little words tend to loom large over a variety of relationships, whether you've been dating for a few months or weeks, or even, in some cases, one night or as long as one year. The question about whether saying 'I Love You' is appropriate or not really needs to be done on a case by case basis, but there are a few rules of engagement that need to be thought through before you utter those very important, relationship altering words.
Saying 'I Love You' too soon could send the wrong message and scare away your significant other, while waiting too long could do the exact same, as the other person might feel as though you're never going to pull the proverbial 'I Love You' trigger and thus decide to opt out of a perfectly good relationship otherwise, simply because there's no commitment beyond spending time together, even if it is plenty of it.
The too soon element could derail a relationship if the person simply doesn't feel the same way about you. You might come across as looking a little desperate or trying to move the relationship ahead too quickly for anyone involved. The real back breaker is saying "I Love You" first and the person responds with not saying it back.
"Ouch," to say the least.
