Dear 100 Hour Board,
How long did it take for you to say I Love You to your significant other? How long had you been feeling that way before saying it? Did you only confess these three words after you knew your partner felt the same way?
I want to say we had been dating somewhere between 2 and 3 months before we said it? I had felt that way for a week or two before saying it, because you better believe I definitely waited for him to say it first. Although if we're being technical, he actually said, "I think I love you," not, "I love you."
13 days. And it was over text. Then again, we were in a long-distance relationship, we both liked each other for a while before we actually started dating, and it would be a few months until we would actually be with each other. I had honestly been feeling that way since a few days after we started dating, but since I had been the one to first admit I liked him I was waiting for him to take that next step. (Well, honestly, I was terrified to tell him I loved him because I didn't want to be one of those couples. But hey, we've been dating for 9 months now and know we're not getting married anytime soon, so I think we've avoided that.)
-guppy of doom
I started to feel that way after we'd been officially dating for about a month. It took me another three months to actually tell him, though that was due more to circumstance than avoidance. I didn't know that Yossarian felt the same way, but he had given me indications that he had strong feelings for me. But either way, I did love him so I was going to tell him even if he didn't reciprocate those feelings.
Unfortunately, we are no longer together and I'm pretty sure love is dead so just adopt a dog and quit while you're ahead.
