Dear Carol

BF dropped the L-bomb too soon? Here's what to say back


 
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?
