I have recently been noticing a lot of "Happy 6 months!" or "Happy 4 days!" and "Happy 2 years" on Twitter. It really has gotten me thinking.
What I am thinking about is how all of these couples, the 6 month, 4 day and 2 year relationships, are saying "I love you". They are all a very different ranges of time. But does that have any effect on what "I love you" truly means?
Personally I have always felt that the only time you should tell someone you love them is when you are completely comfortable with that person. And I mean completely comfortable. So comfortable that they you are willing to look your worst, so comfortable you are willing to tickle them, so comfortable that you can tell them everything ranging from your deepest secrets to the fact that you don't feel good and are going to spend the next hour in the bathroom. I think that that is what love is.
Love is nasty, embarrassing, honest, funny, wierd, awkward, crazy, relieving, patient, ridiculous, love is beautiful. Love is kind of like being on anethseia, you don't really know why you feel so comfortable and content, but you do. Love has this overwhelming prensence when that special someone is in the room with you. No matter how much you think the other person is annoying, you know that you would be crazy without that "annoyingness". That is what love is.
So, because of that I was a late bloomer to the whole "love thing" in my relationship. We waited until 8 months to say those lovely 3 words and it seemed to work out fine for us. I mean, we haven't gone a day without saying it in 3 years, so I would say that is pretty successful.
Here is what some of my Twitter Followers had to say when I asked "How soon is it okay to say I love you?":
"Whenever it feels right for you, there is no "perfect" time, and usually you'll just know anyway."
But what do you think? Maybe I am crazy to get annoyed when there are people saying "i luv u baby" after two days of dating. Maybe they were shot in the head by cupids love arrow and they can't contain themselves.
What I'm thinking is that arrow they were shot by was more of the infatuation arrow than the love arrow. But that's just a guess.
So please, leave your opinions in the comments. I want to see what you lovely folks think. Have at it.
Keep calm, and party on friends.
