When is the Right Time to Say I Love You?

That feeling of being in love, when your heart is all of a flutter every time you think of him, you can’t eat or sleep properly and your every waking thought is filled with him, is a truly magical feeling. But how do you know if he is feeling the same? When is the right time to say I love you?


Blurting out those three little words “I love you” could mean the end of a beautiful friendship if you get your timing wrong and the other person is not quite feeling the same romantic thoughts.


So how can you tell if the time is right to let him know how you feel and whether you have really found true romance.
