Question from Sade Richmond, Bronx, New York
Q: “Me and my guy have only been together about 5months, and I’ve fallen madly in love but idk When is the right time to tell a guy I love you?”
A: A lot of people fear saying “I love you” first because of the possibility of the other person not feeling the same. The thought of rejection may sometime sway us away from what we really want to do or say. Me personally, I believe in authenticity. I believe that in order for any relationship to grow, risks have to be taken. There is no right time to tell someone you love them for the love is controlled by your feelings rather than a specific time and date. Many say these words with a reciprocal expectation failing to realize that expressed love need not always be fed with words, but also, action.
