When should you say 'I love you' to a girlfriend or boyfriend? Watch

    Say you've been seeing someone for two months non-stop and you feel you genuinely love them, should you wait longer to say it? Most dating magazines I have read said that 1-2 months is too short of a time to say 'I love you' and that you should wait 3 to 6 months before saying you love someone. When did you say to your partner you loved them?

    Most magazines are full of crap that isn't true. For example, a lot of magazines aimed at women say that all men like a fully shaven vagina and that if you have a trimmed vagina you will die alone because men will be repulsed by pubic hair.

    I think that magazine that suggested waiting 3 to 6 months is ridiculous. You definitely know if you love someone way before 6 months.

    Honestly, just do what your instincts are telling you to do. Often, we can tell how someone feels about us through actions rather than words.

    Also, stop reading magazines for advice on relationships. They are useless and give dumb advice.

    It depends wholly on your partner and there's no catch all answer to this.

    You say it when you feel it. My boyfriend said it to me after a week, and I said it back then too. We just felt it. There isn't a time limit when suddenly it changes from "like a lot" to "love". If it's meant to be, your partner won't run away screaming whenever you decide to tell them.
