DEAR DEIDRE: HOW soon is too soon to tell someone you love them?

I’ve been dating my boyfriend for six months – it’s my first serious relationship – and I’ve fallen for him hard.

I’m 17 and he’s 19.

When we’re together, everything feels so natural, and I get this warm glow inside.

I can feel the words “I love you” on the tip of my tongue, but I’m terrified that if I say them, he might be scared off.

It’s very possible he feels the same and is also too nervous to say those three little words.
