With the way so many songs are written about love, you’ve got to admit that we humans are hardly looking for anything else but affection from people we care for. One book wouldn’t even suffice to record all the little ways people expressed their love to someone. Maybe you’re dating over 40 or dating after divorce, and somehow, this feeling starts to consume you. When is the right time to declare your love to your girl? Well, here are some tips.
Say it when you mean it
Women are known to have good instincts. If you plan to tell them that you love them when you really don’t, chances are, their instincts will tell them that you’re lying. Thus, if you don’t want to spoil an otherwise good relationship, say the magic words only when every fiber in you screams so.
Say it when the foundations are already laid
When you confess your love to your girl, you are implying that you want to take the next step to your relationship. But how can you take your dating to the next level if the foundations in your relationship are still shaky? There’s no turning back when you say “I love you.” A solid friendship and mutual openness will definitely help you pop your confession and continue with your relationship in a nice way, whether she responds to your love or not.
Say it at the right time
Anything that’s rushed often brings one to the pits. Anything that’s late is abominable either. When is the right time then? Well, nobody knows that for sure except you. The right time is definitely not when you and your partner are on your first date. Proclaiming your love at the prime of your friendship can tend to rock the boat as well. Say it at a time when it’s not awkward. Most of all, say it when you are more than ready to commit – physically, emotionally, and practically.
Saying “I love you” can make or break you and your special someone’s relationship. But remember, saying it at the right time is not where it all ends. More than anything else, back up your words with actions. When you tell a person that you love her, complement it with actions; and you’ll never know what might just happen.
