It has come to be that time in my relationship. I've known my SO for three years and we've been dating three months now. At times, I catch myself wanting to say "I love you."
But of course, I don't. I catch myself and scold myself for even thinking such a thing. How can you love someone after three months? Is it possible? Maybe, but I believe I'm the type of person who loves fairly easily -- although I've never had sex and I'm coming up on my 21st birthday.
The biggest reason I don't want to say the "L" word is because on Facebook almost every day, the younger kids from my high school are tossing it around like they're playing hot potato, and inevitably they seem to all break up.
When is it too soon for the "L" word? Obviously, it depends on the couple and how long they've known each other before dating, but maybe not even that.
I keep coming back to that old Charlie Brown quote, "I think I'm afraid of being happy because whenever I get too happy something bad always happens."
Is it crazy for me to want to use the "L" word so soon? Is it really all that soon since I've known my SO for three years?
