In June we had our first conversation about "love" and then again on ourWeve talked about dating, heartbreak and what to ask before you get married.
Love is just as much a choice as is figuring out if someones the one.
I am happy that i get to share my love of reading, art, fitness, fashion, politics and history, etc.
In: ask a guy, love advicetags: ask a guy, dating advice, love advice, relationships, saying i love you.
After he left, i told my best friend, hes going to be my boyfriend, and now, over 8 years later (4 of them long distance!
Four years later, we are still in love and happy and looking forward to the rest of our lives together.
: this is such a helpful reminder of the rich and varied tapestry that is the human existence, because if i had been dating someone for a year and they had not yet said i love you, i would move to an island in the middle of the sea and fling up a wall of nettles and poison to keep the world out.
If we didnt work, i love him enough that i want him to take care of himself and be better later with someone else.
One who says "i love you" first suddenly thinks we're "moving too fast" >:(, relationships, 44 replies.
Dating time to say i love you
I love a good romcom or literary romance, and hearing real true love stories are even better!
He doesnt remember the simplest of things like when we first met yet he says he love me.
My husband is my partner, my lover, my sharer-of-home-body-and-money; he is my favorite person, but he is not my all.
A guy: what should you do if your boyfriend hasnt said i love you after a year?
I wonder if there will always be some degree of doubt that seeps in with the ebb and flow of long term love.
To be clear, i love him, and i think he knows that seeing as how i'm the one always bringing it up, but i have yet to say it to him because i can tell he'd get freaked out.
Do you know that feeling we got when we start liking someone at first sight i call it puppy love, being in lovewell i didnt have that with my boyfriend.
And ill have to move back to mexico after living in uk 20 yearswhat ive found incredible, is that we are 100% compatible, and when i think back, when i was a little girl, i could have never guessed that i was going to finally find love at 46, 32 years later, with the little boy who was bullied by everyone at our school, whom i ignored at that time, but, that today, by life serendipity/chances, he is the love of my life and we love each other so, so much, i feel so lucky!
I am deeply sadened that he is 46 years old, never married, has no kids, no family, no sibblings, no real friends close to him.
Awidow's guide to love and dating sales
We had a baby, bought a house, married a year later, and had an incredibly rough patch (for which i accept all the blame, even though he is gracious enough to concede a little).
I would be perfectly happy with a han solo response; love means different things to different people, feelings grow at different rates, yada, yada.
I cried out many times before that night but i suddenly felt like that night my prayer was answered and that i would find my true love finally.
Hoped he would be the one but was/am unsettled by the not knowing for both of us, and the fact that while there is so much love, there is also so much conflict.
I never thought it would happen and had so many doubts but god had a different plan in store and i thank him everyday for the love of my life!
My boyfriend and i have been together for over four years and are questioned all the time by friends, family, co-workers (sigh, especially the co-workers) not understanding our relationship.
Would love to hear stories from older people who stuck it out through hard times and found love for each other again.
I wish i didnt marry him i wish i had waited for probably that special love.
Father-son love is a different thing, nevertheless my father never told me he loved me or anything like that for the 19 years we knew each other, it doesn't mean he didn't.
And many comments to read through still, which makes me feel all fuzzy because i like to be reminded of the fact that we are all the result of the love of thousands.
Does it mean that one of you is simply not choosing to love the other as perhaps you did before?
There are worse things than telling someone youve been with for an entire calendar year that you are in love with them.
I broke up with the other guy and started dating him a couple weeks later and now we are going on 6 years together!
Our son and his wife told us about the new baby we just looked at each otherthis is why you stay together and it was hard sometimes to see that, but the love was bigger than our individual selves and we committed to that.
I dated other guys (read: jerks), and then finally after 7 years of friendship, something clicked.
I dont know if i am wrong to feel this way but its something he does very often, and i wondered if a pure man who loves his wife so much wouldnt even want to hear her voice the last thing before he goes to bed and the first thing when he wakes being that he is a away?
Weve been together ever since, its soon a year now and i love him more than anything.
While i never want people to jump to saying it early on in a relationship, the fact that its been over a year and its not a regular part of your life that doesnt bode well for the long-term.
(i call him lover cuz thats exactly what he is, also we arent married yet) .
I love him and i know he feels the same for me and we will be getting married very soon.
, its hard to break down the feeling i had, the certainty, into words, because when i come up with a list of characteristics that made me fall in love with her, it sounds like there could be a bunch of people out there who would fit the bill, but really, the first night we met, i just knew that she was the one.
Id love a post on couples that are unmarried but just as committed to loving one another.
Somehow life just felt better with himwe have been married for 35 years and when i see him after a day or a week apart i always feel so lucky to have this decent loving man in my life we have 3 adult children and a grandchild on the way.
Two years after the divorce, i started dating a danish man, but at the start of 2016, suddenly, through facebook, a former female classmate, found me, and decided to create a group to try to find and reunite the secondary school group where i studied in mexico.
We started chatting, via skype of course, and we exchanged whatsapp, emails etc this was in january last year (2016).
Everyone is different but a 30 year old man should have enough experience to know a lot sooner than a year whether or not he loves his g/f.
I asked how he felt about me before he said he didn't love me yet but that he does care for me much more and has stronger feelings for me than he did for his other two girlfriends.
True love is out there, you just need to wait for the right person and please pray to god because he loves you so much and wants the best for your life and wants you to have something that will last a life time!
6 years, 4 cities, 4 jobs and 1 wedding later were still having our frasier fridays and he still remains firmly by my side.
. i wouldnt quite call it love at first sight, but rather this strong feeling of but of course, or inevitability, but in a good way.
I feel like knowing whos the one is just as much a life choice as a love choice.
Shortly after he asked me out he told me that almost a year previously he had wanted to ask me out, but didnt i didnt seem interested at the time apparently.
Before that, we were best friends for a couple years (because i had just broken up with an ex and wasnt attracted to him), and even though he liked me he nobly restrained himself from pursuing it because i wasnt ready and he knew i didnt see him that way.
But now we have our life, and 8 years later its better, fuller and more exciting than i imagined during those 5 years of longing.
Its impossible for two people to be perfect for one another but theres a possibility two people could find a love worth choosing every day, even when things get hard.
Cut to a year later: we are dating and in the car on a roadtrip.
The first time he met my cats, he gave one of them a nickname on the spot and told me he loved cats.
So id love to open up the floor for anyone whod like to share their story.
We met, married, and are now expecting a baby all in a year and a half.
Granted, for the next 5 years, he didnt know i was his soulmate and we both had other relationships.
I would love to hear how you worked through your doubts and ultimately got clarity about your decision (or if it still felt like a huge leap when you actually got married).
Fifteen years ago we hit a major rocky patch (thanks to both of us) and i dont think either of us knew at the time if we would come through it together.
Wish you the best of luck in your love endeavors and hope that, regardless of what you decide to do, you always try and find your own happiness because nobody can be expected to make us happy if we cant make ourselves happy first.
A relationship is about more than loveyou may love someone, but that doesnt mean you need to spend the rest of your life with them.
, with other people; this allows me to continue to cherish the friendships i had before my husband came onto the scene and new ones i have made since that are also great loves in my life, and to foster them so they remain present into the future.
