Hey guys... just thought I needed a bit of guidance. My boyfriend and I have been going out for close to 13 months... and we've been saying 'I love you' to each other since about 3 months in.
What I needed advice on is that recently he has started joking around and saying 'I love you sometimes'. He says that he does it just because it irritates me and he likes teasing me and getting me frustrated... although I can't help but feel like that's true? I have to point out that I can get pretty insecure about these things, so even if he didn't mean it it could potentially be my insecurities playing up. I mean when he sees that it upsets me he gets serious and just tells me that he loves me and that's that.
I'm not asking you all to read his mind, but just suggest what it could possibly mean.

I really do think he's joking around. I do that sort of thing sometimes with my boyfriend - I'll ask him how much he loves me, he'll say something like infinity, he'll ask me how much I love him, I'll say just a little. It's fun because both of us know that we're joking.
The problem with your situation, I think, is that your boyfriend knows that he's joking but you don't always feel certain that he's joking. If he insists that he's joking but you really still don't feel comfortable, I think you should ask him to stop kidding around.
