So I just started seeing a guy about a month ago. I'm 27 and he is 32. We both agreed that we wanted to take things slow and develope a really healthy relationship (thru Match.com) because we see so much potential here. Things have been going just fantastic but I am starting to get confused. He is constantly using the word LOVE. It's always I love your sense of humor, I love our conversations, I love your smile, I love THIS about you, I love THAT about you...etc.

Whenever I have sent a card or email I always use XOXO, Nikki. We have not even had the "exclusive" talk yet so is it just me or does it seem too soon to be using the "L" word so much? Or am I over reacting and maybe he's just a lovey/dovey type of guy??? Thanks!Nik..

Your question was: So much of the "L" word.

Nikki...Pianoguy is wondering if this man is "testing the waters" to see how you TRULY feel about him?So the next time he hits you with one of the 'terms of endearment' that you've described, ask him to be more specific and less generic. If he gives you some real examples, then you can ask him the fatal question:DOES THIS MEAN WE'RE EXCLUSIVE?Good Luck!Pianoguy..

Alot of people use the word love like the way your BF does. I use it the same way...

I use the word "love" alot too but in terms of I love this or that like oh I love icecream LOL Not about a person I'm dating. He just sounds really affectionate and lovey dovey, but for me personally that is something that would scare me off. I'd freak out and dump him. That's what happened to the guy I was dating (online dating with Match.com) before my boyfriend. He kind of went too fast for me! He freaked me out with all his lovey stuff too soon!..

I dont' see anything wrong with a guy saying he loves something about her. People do tend to overuse the word love so it doesn't mean as much to them to say it anymore. He sounds like an expressive guy, and that generally doesn't bother me, but if he "loves" everything then how do you really know if he truely LOVES you? You see, that is the part that would concern me about dating (online dating with Match.com) someone like that...

Hi Nik,People use "love" in casual conversation all the time. That's probably just his way of saying that he really likes something. If he "loves" something about you, it's a compliment most likely and not a hidden declaration. As for signing "love" at the end of a note, email, or letter, it's a common closing to use when addressing someone you feel affectionate with.The BIG "I Love You" dropping will probably wait until after exclusivity. Congratulations, you are dating (online dating with Match.com) someone who seems to be really into you!Holly..
