I think I'm in love with my boyfriend of three months. We're taking things very slowly, but I do want to know how he feels too before going further if you know what I mean. I keep wanting to blurt out that I love him. But one of my female friends said that the girl should NEVER say it first, (or pretty much, never initiate any furthering of a relationship first) that it's a recipe for scaring him off if he doesn't feel the same way, so it's better to just keep quiet until he says it. But he's also quite emotionally scarred from previous experiences with parents and friends and whatnot (I'm his first girlfriend) and I don't know if he would say it first. I actually think he does love me, he just hasn't said it.
