The top three questions I receive in my in-box are as follows:
1. Should I move for love?
2. How can I get over my broken heart?
3. Why hasn’t he proposed yet?
The fourth most popular question, and the inspiration for today’s open thread discussion, isn’t really a question at all, but is more often posed as a statement, and it’s this:
It’s been [fill in the blank] weeks/months/years and he still hasn’t said the “L” word yet. (This is usually followed by a series of questions along the lines of “Why?” “Should I MOA?” and “Should I just say it first?” and “Do you think he’s gay?”).
So, since it seems to be a perpetually relevant topic, I thought this weekend we could talk about our own experiences dropping the L-bomb. When was the first time you said it? How many relationships have you said it in? What’s the longest you’ve waited to say or hear it? Have you ever said it first?
