That's what the movies make us think this moment should be, and most men know it won't be that, so we avoid the actual act of saying these words longer than is needed or comfortable.
Here are six signs that he's gearing up to finally tell you that he loves you.
For most men it starts off as a suspicion ("Holy f*ck. ") then it grows to certainty, then to anxiety about how and when to say it, and whether the woman might feel the same way.
Even if your guy has a hunch that you love him too, it's nerve-wracking to be the first one to say "I love you."Plus there's the pressure of getting it "right." He wants to be sitting in a park after the best date ever, have a sweet speech ready, and as soon as you say it back the previously inactive fountain comes to life and shoots beautiful streams of water into the air as you kiss.
