Follow your head or your heart?

I want to say the 'L' word to the guy I've been dating. It's only been a month but I think I love him. However, there's this practical voice in my head telling me to wait a month or two longer before saying anything to him, in case I ruin the relationship by taking things too fast too soon.

So what's the best thing to do in this case? Listen to my head or follow my heart?

I personally think its a good idea to wait a while longer. Even if he does love you he probably doesn't even realize it. You saying it so soon might scare him away. There is also the fact that you "think" you love him. You might be right but if it's still in the thinking stage why not wait until there is no doubt in your mind that you love him? Generally, unless you have known him for a long time prior to your relationship, you dont completely know a person that you have only been dating for a month. Give both of you a chance to get more comfortable with eachother. When all the initial excitement dicipates you can realize your true feelings for this guy.

Good Luck!!

Head over heart any day. Sometimes, especially in the beginnings of a relationship everything is rosy and judgment is clouded. I would wait until a good while had passed before saying any type of "commitment" phrases.

I agree with Becky! You're still in the honeymoon phase of the relationship and although you may really love him, I recommend waiting until you know 100% for sure, without a shadow of a doubt that you love him. Those are very serious words.

I am not sure about the exact situation but I suggest do what you want to do, since you spoke out here I guess you must lovehim very much, while time wait for no one, if always keep the feeling in heart is not fair, anyway he will know it at last, and how will you sure you will not ruin your friendship?

Hey everyone,
Thank you so much for your advice. I'm going to wait a few more weeks before I say anything. I really don't want the relationship to move so fast.
And you're right, I might be confusing love with lust so I'm definitely going to wait until the honeymoon period is over and see how I feel about him then.
