A couple of months ago I was chatting with a friend of mine about her new boyfriend, who she was – and still is – so blatantly madly in love with. The difference between then and now is that back then she refused to even utter those three little words and just tell him, "I love you."
I couldn't understand why she was waiting to tell him something she so obviously felt, but every time I asked, she'd just say, "I'm waiting for him to say it first." And sure enough, a few weeks later, he professed his love. Granted, it was at 1 AM at a dive bar on the upper east side, but that doesn't make it any less special.
To be honest, I was a little surprised that he was the first to break, being that most of the guys I know would never say "I love you" first... or so I thought. A new study in the journal of Personality and Social Psychology is changing everything I ever thought I knew about boys. On average, men considered saying "I love you" 42 days before women did.
