Most people say “I love you” after only three months of dating
Sometimes finding the courage to say “I love you” in a relationship can be hard and even nerve-wracking.
YouGov asked 3,947 people about the earliest they had ever said “I love you” to their partner. The most common length of time for people was three months, with 22% waiting this much to say the three words. Around 14% uttered the magic words after six months, while 13% said them in the first month.
At the opposite pole, 3% said it within nine months, 6% within a year and 2% within 2 years. Furthermore, 10% confessed to never having told a romantic partner they loved them or even been in love. However, the age of the participants (18 to 25) may be the reason for this, as the Independent reports.
