well, i've been exclusively dating this guy for about 3 months now, we get along well, and things are going great so far. the other night we were fooling around when i thought i heard him say "i love you". i didnt reply, because i was unsure if he even said it. A few minutes later he said it again, clearly, and i said it back. He said it once more before we finished our romp, and that is the last time the subject has come up. This was about 3 days ago, and we've both kind of been pretending it never happened. While I am in no hurry to rush the relationship, i'm dying to know if he meant what he said, or if it was a heat of the moment kind of thing. I'd like to add that i have a cold sore, so we haven't been kissing on the mouth, and also he had just resumed taking perscription cymbalta after about a months break. perhaps the absence of kissing and the anti-depressant combo made him say things in the heat of passion that he's not ready for? i dont know, but im confused and i would really appriciate anyones take on this situation

I think you should just ask him if he really ment it. Since you two are going there is a good chance he ment it and don't have any doubts about asking him.

Totally in agreement with saladfingers up there... ask him what the deal is.. you two are obviously in a committed enough relationship that a d.t.r. moment (define the relationship) shouldn't be anything more than an expansion on what's been discussed in the past.
What I am really wondering about is if YOU meant it when you said it back... be prepared to talk to him about that back either way. Let us know how it turns out!
