I'm in the throes of a new relationship, and my girl tends to back off if she feels that the other person feels more strongly about her than she does them. How do I work up the courage to tell her I love her?
This is quite a quandry, my friend. What I can tell you is this. In this tiger's most humble opinion, if you are still calling it a new relationship, then it is too soon to drop the L word anyway. A lot of people get hung up on that word. "Should I say it?" "Who should say it first?" I say, don't worry about it. Simply focus on building the connection between you. In time, as the relationship grows and strengthens, it won't require courage. It will just seem right.
