I'm Not Sure If What I Feel is Like or Love

Alright, so I've been going out with my boyfriend for three months, but I've liked him since last school year (and he liked me, though neither of us knew that the other liked us). He's amazing. He'll help me with getting my books in and out of my locker when I'm helping other people open their lockers, show off that he has a girlfriend by changing his service tag on Halo to the first four letters of my gamertag (yes, we're nerds, I know) and I can talk about literally anything with him without feeling awkward. I've caught myself saying that I love him multiple times, but I'm scared that it's just my hormones and I don't really love him. I want to tell him, and I think he loves me, but I'm scared that it's not true and that I'll end up hurting both of us.

There's no way for us to say whether or not you love him or vice versa. But if that's how you feel, then say it; however don't just say it, express it and if love exist he will reciprocate those feelings. You have nothing to lose if you tell him right now, but if you feel more comfortable waiting then wait until you can really feel and see the love in the relationship

My advise for you is that just wait for  the right time,if its gonna happen it will happen.No worries ,just sit back relax and enjoy the time spent together. And if he also really loves you he'l surely express it.Just take it easy.Hakoona matatah

Hmm a month or two ago I was in the same boat with my current girfriend. So depending upon how many times you've "caught yourself" he may already get the message (circumstances varies).But I'm sure the message can be put togeather just the same. Ethirway my personal rule is a month or so in the relationship, one can say love without scruitny (streatching at it's absolute max 6 months). Good luck

The great thing about love is that there is no right or wrong, no time limit that determines whether or not it exists. If it's there...it's there.
I know a lot of people have reservations on the whole saying "I love you," thing. I think you can grow to love someone after you've gotten to know them. Sometimes it's a late night conversation or it's just being around each other over an extended period of time. Of course, the longer you've known someone the stronger that bond grows. You may love him now but come six more months those feelings will most likely intensify.
I guess what I'm saying is don't worry about how long you've been together. If you find yourself saying it, let yourself. Someone has to to say it first, why not you?
