    Wait, let me guess: it has something to do with atavistic male-chauvinism. Am I right?

    well, she may have known him for a lot longer than 2 months before she went out with him.
    If you really do love him and you think he loves you, well, just tell him. but don't try and rush it or anything. there has been a lot of good advice in this thread - just let it come naturally one day.

    Well, the words are usually formed by the vocal cords; alternatively, computerised speech packages are available at reasonable prices.

    2 months and you already want to say you love him? :eek: I've been going out with my bf for longer than that and I wouldn't dare.
    Same here, will be 6 months since we've been together and neither one of us has said it yet. It's just odd considering all the serious talks he has about our relationship, how he's so comfortable bringing up topics about marriage, kids and our future and moving in together etc...and yet he isn't comfortable saying it yet:confused:. The closest has been "I like you more than like" and always "I care about you a lot a lot a lot..." Maybe we're just both scared and waiting for the other person to say it first :confused:.

    My boyfriend was so sweet when we first started going out... when he asked me out he didn't actually say 'Will you go out with me?', he said, 'I've got this little friend, and he really likes you... he's wondering if you'd like to spend more time with him?' I played along because it was so sweet, and eventually I said yes! :p: Quite soon into the relationship he told me he loved me... I think I smiled and kissed him when he said it, but I didn't say it back for at least a month after!!! It didn't stop him saying it though, so don't be disheartened if your partner doesn't say it back, they might just need a bit of time!
    Awwwwww! That's so cute!! +Rep for the cute story! (i'm such a soft touch....)

    I don't think you can say whether two months is too soon or not. I've been with my boyfriend two months today, and he told me he loved me last week. I'd been to reading with him to see one of his old friends from uni, and we were driving back, at about 2am, and I started getting a little sad because of problems with my parents and I just got stressed out about uni and friends and pretty much everything! Anyway, he pulled over in a layby on the road we were driving along and we got out and he gave me a hug and we looked up and the stars were out and really bright, the sky was really clear. I was standing there thinking in my head "I love you", but just couldn't bring myself to say it, I was so scared he wouldn't say it back. We hugged for ages, and he was telling me that everything would be ok, then he whispered to me, "...and I love you", it made me so happy because i'd been wanting to say it to him but wasn't sure when was the right time, and that really was the right time, so I said "I love you too." And then we hugged and kissed some more. It was so lovely....

    So yes, there is no set time before you love someone, if you love them, you just know, and I think you just say it when it feels right.

    Has anyone ever had to wait for some reason to get together with the guy they like, even though it was clear to them both that they liked each other, and ended up saying 'I love you' as the first way of expressing their feelings rather than waiting?

    I said the L word in two months...but that was after I'd known him for a year and a half and fancied him for half a year. :P
