My boyfriend and I have been going out for a few months. The other day he told me he loves me, and all I
said was, “Thanks, that’s sweet.” I just didn’t know how to
respond. I really like him, but what should I say back?
Dear Love Bug,
It’s a terrible move to tell someone
you love him if you’re not feeling it. Even though your
conversation was awkward, you were smart not to echo his words and
pretend to feel more serious than you actually do. If he says it
again, it’s OK to just smile or say, “I care about you too.”
Time will tell whether your relationship grows or fizzles so, for
now, why rush to label it?
