That's the 1st rule!! never say that!!
It says nothing about OP's age. She could be any age. And kids are constantly over using "I love you" (although it doesn't really mean anything when they say it). As for the part about guys not wanting commitment at a young age, I'm 17 and see nothing wrong with being committed to somebody at this age (although I don't know if you meant young like my age, or young like 13). I also have known many guys my age who are or were in long term relationships.
Yes, because many seventeen year olds are mature enough for a serious long term relationship. I'm pretty sure seventeen is in the range of too young to really mean it. Especially since your brain hasn't completely developed and your hormones are still running rampant.
so you're telling me that the fact that I'm 17 years old and have been in a long distance relationship for over a year it "means nothing" because we're "kids"? I'm sorry but last i checked, when I tell my mom I love her I mean it. meaning I'm capable of knowing what love is and how to feel it. if you believe that there's a so called "age limit" on when you can mean saying I love you to someone then you have a serious problem.
I love how that turned him off so hard. What a strange reaction.
That sucks lol. But have a talk with him about this and tell him how you feel, it can be serious.
He might just be nervous. Hearing someone say I love you freaks people out including me.
In 4's defense: the first time my now husband said he loved me, I froze and was speechless. When he said it we had been together just a few months and it took me by surprise. I didn't say anything back but not because I didn't love him- I didn't respond because no one had ever told me they loved me and I was shocked... Albeit, a boner killer and him leaving from saying "I love you" is a red flag. I feel for OP!
He may have just not been expecting it! He could have handled it better though!
Was that the first time you ever told him you loved him? Maybe he was taken by surprise and didn't know how to react. I don't think it necessarily means he doesn't love you. Just talk to him about it, tell him how you feel (:
I'm sorry OP. Your boyfriend may just not feel as strongly as you yet. Oh wait I'm on FML, we don't believe in logical solutions, so... BREAK UP WITH HIM HE'S AWFUL AND YOU DESERVE A MILLION TIMES BETTER! Jk, jk:) it'll get better with time. Sorry though OP.
I don't get why someone down voted you. What you said is true. Most people on FML instantly jump to telling OP to break up with their significant other whenever an FML is written about their significant other doing something they didn't like. The truth is that every relationship has problems, and it's not right to always tell people to break up with their bf/gf.
The question is, how long have you been dating? That makes a big difference in how he could be reacting.
That was my question too. If they have been dating for 3 weeks, that's a bit codependent. if they've been seeing each other for a year, then his reaction is a big red flag. It's all a matter of time, and in today's society, just because they are having sex, that does not necessarily mean that they have been together for very long.
Best birth control ever! But seriously, he may not be ready for something serious.
