When to Say ‘I Love You’: Is It Time?

Love
It’s a short sentence with a long-lasting impact: “I love you.” In any new relationship, those three little words sit anxiously on the back of your tongue, just waiting to be unleashed. So, when is the best time to do it? Are there unspoken rules? Or do we just let it rip? The short answer: it depends. Every relationship is different, so it’s important to gauge its progress.

How I Starting Dating Someone That Spoke a Different Language

Love
Imagine not being able to understand what someone else was saying? Now imagine if that person was someone you were dating. Well, for me that was a reality several years ago.
