Love You. Mean It.

20 Sep

Saying “I love you” too soon (and too often) is a Red Flag.

So let’s say you and your new boyfriend or girlfriend are in for the night and having a great time. You’re sipping some wine and laughing it up while digesting some tasty food you claim to cook all the time (really it’s just a recipe you found earlier on the internet). Things are flowing effortlessly and it’s only a matter of time before you hit the sheets, when all of a sudden your boo who you’ve only been dating for about a month or so, drops the bomb:

“I love you”

Shut the front door! Red Flag.

The only other thing more devastating than premature ejaculation is the premature “I love you.” In fact, it is the second leading mood killer in men after prolonged exposure to “Gossip Girl” or “Keeping up with the Kardashians”.

While these three magical words can be one of the most romantic, unforgettable milestones in a relationship, this isn’t the case if it’s only been a month and your girl or guy is already throwing them around like a “Jersey Shore” catchphrase. Congrats, you got yourself a Stage-6-clinger.

If you haven’t already, prepare yourself to witness insecurity issues that are sure to push you to the fucking edge. Those who drop the premature “I love you” are most likely going to be very needy and are going to “need” to hear you say it back to them all the time, which leads us to the our next red flag; saying “I love you” too much.

Abuse of these words is one the most telling signs a relationship is doomed. Ever hear those couples who subject everyone to hearing every single one of their sentences end with “Love you babe” or the ones that rape each other’s Facebook walls every single day with “I love youuuuuu!!” Who are they trying to convince? What are they trying to prove? While they think they are being cute, everyone else just wants to throw up.

No matter how deeply you care about someone and how “right” everything feels after a month, I suggest you take a step back and heed these warnings. Enjoy the butterflies while they last, but never let them fully sweep you away.

It’s goes back to the old saying your mom used to tell you, “Actions speak louder than words.” If you love someone, show them…in a private, personal setting. There’s nothing wrong with saying the words too, however treating these words like some corny catchphrase thrown about Facebook, eventually kills any meaning the words ever carried.
