    I have been seeing my boyfriend for almost 2 months now. (We complete 2 months in 4 days).

    We have gotten really close over the last 2 months. We've met each others family, friends, and even god parents (!!), so needless to say, we're pretty close.

    I've been wanting to tell him that I "love" him for a while now, but have never found the "opportune" time to tell him.

    He wants to do something special on our two-month "anniversary," and I figure that would be the best time to tell him. Now I have never told any of my previous lovers this, and I have been in three relationships, all of them lasting longer than 18 months…but with my current boyfriend, things seem different.

    How would be a "romantic" way to tell him how I feel about him?

    don't make too big a deal out of it if you really feel you have to tell him...you might freak him out and ruin things a bit...just say it as casually as possible at some point, so he doesn't feel like he has to say anything back or react a certain way.

    Why the quotation marks? This just means that you fail to say anywhere in your post that you are in love with him. I wouldn't tell him yet. When I first thought that I was in love, I told my girlfriend almost immediately. A few months later, I fell in love. Then I had to explain...hey you know when I said that I loved you a while back....well now...I LOVE YOU. I'm not saying that you don't love him. I'm not saying that you aren't being true to yourself, or that your lying, but what I am saying is this: If you are in love with him, don't worry about when or where or how to say it. Just bide your time. Like x.narb.x has said...just don't tell him yet. Then, if it's real, the opportunity will present itself...and that butterflies in your stomach, gut-feeling will let you know that its the right time. And there you go.

    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. Apart from one time when I was drunk but he put it down to the alcohol.

    If you really feel you must though then like the last person said, don't make it a big deal. Just say it at a good time maybe during a romantic meal or in the middle of a romantic moment e.g. a kiss.

    I've not been in your situation yet, but there is a guy I feel a lot for at the moment and so far we're finding it hard to talk about our feelings for each other. I guess we each don't want to scare the other off, but it's not like we'd be talking about love yet...
    I would have thought though it would be a nice thing to whisper into his ear when you are lying snuggled up together in bed at night. just a kiss and a short 'i love you'.
    not really in a position to give advice though, hehehe.

    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!

    Aw my boyfriend told me he loved me before we got together (We've known eachother for years) and we went to London one day (2 days before we got together) and it was snowing and it was just so perfect, sitting outside a cafe, and I just felt it was the right time to say it, and I did! I don't think I've ever seen somone look so happy and so surprised at the same time. I still think it's the loveliest thing you can possibly say to someone, and it doesn't matter how many times you say it, but it has to be at the right time to the right person, then it's fantastic. If you have to ask how to tell him I don't think you're ready to say it yet.

    perhaps say it as a joke first?

    the first time i said it we were messing around, and he said 'don't you love me then' cos i wouldn't give him a sweet, and i was like 'yeah of course i love you'... then realised what i'd said and we both looked at each other and it was really lovely so i said it again.

    don't try and make it special, just let it happen and it'll slip out when you least expect it to. i knew i was in love for ages before i said it, but i'd never said 'i love you' to him until i was caught completely off guard... now we say it all the time. just go with the flow and it'll be really natural when you do say it.

    Try the old "I... I.... I want to say it but I don't know if it's too soon"
    *intense stare*
    "I feel really strongly about you and I know it's early on but you're really special to me"
    *get closer*
    "And I don't know why but I have these feeling like I've never felt before"
    *pout*
    *flutter eyelashes*
    "And I just wanted to say..."

    [at which point he should hopefully well up and say "I FEEL THE SAME" and then you can kiss and hug and stroke each other's faces and say "Oh I love you" *sigh*]

    I agree with the actions and GIFTS but it should be said with words too, it's the most powerful thing you can possibly say if it's genuine... Maybe I'm just a soppy girl?

    Imo, a guy should never say it with words. He should say it with actions and gifts etc.
    Any particular reason?
