Gauge Whether He’s Emotional
Life’s full of ups and downs. When it comes to a relationship, it feels great when you go through a milestone with your partner.
However, these moments make us emotionally weak. This means that if you share a milestone together he might think that he loves you.
At this point, you shouldn’t take him too seriously. Revisit the topic when both of you aren’t clouded by emotions.
Express Your Feelings
The greatest danger to a relationship is the absence of proper communication. The best thing to do is to say exactly what you feel.
The man can’t read your mind. You’ll have to tell him what you think and what you expect.
Tell him whether you think that it is too soon for you to start saying “I love you” or not. This way, you’ll clearly express your emotions and he’ll know exactly what to expect from the relationship.
If He Tells You He Loves You Too Soon, Suggest That You Take It Slow
Black women find it hard to rush a relationship. This is usually triggered by what they’ve witnessed in other people’s relationships or in their past ones. When you feel that you’re being rushed, keep in mind that you have the power to control the pace of the relationship. Tell your partner that things are moving too fast for you and you’d like to take it slow. If he is an understanding man, he’ll surely go at your pace.
Don’t Dwell On It So Much
We black women have a reputation of sweating the small stuff. You might be over-thinking the whole “I love you” phrase. Maybe he says that to all his friends and it means the same as I like you. The best thing is to seek clarification from him. Tell him that you’re beginning to like him and you might find that that’s what he meant too. So, don’t really think about it too much.
