The Right Time To Use The 'L' Word: Is Love Talk After 8 Months Of Dating Like Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Did Too Soon?

Is there a wrong or right time to say ‘I love you’?

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have fallen hard for one another. Although they sometimes refer to the other as “a friend”, the two aren’t shy about sharing their real feelings when they think they’re out of the media’s eye. In fact, they say “I love you” all the time! But is eight months into a relationship too soon to really know how you feel?

While shopping at Armani Exchange’s 51st and Fifth Avenue location in NYC June 28, the two repeatedly dropped the “L” bomb. “Justin and Selena were holding hands as they shopped and said ‘I love you’ to each other not once, but several times in public. Everyone could hear them,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “I guess they want to share their love with the world. They were at the store about 5:30 p.m. and stayed for about 20 minutes or so.”

Adds the insider, “Justin’s bodyguard wouldn’t let anyone get to close to them, but that didn’t stop them from showing off their affection for each other. They were just in their own world…dazed and in love!”

But is eight months too soon? Well, take Justin’s pal Kim Kardashian as an example. Her entire relationship — including saying the “L” word and a marriage proposal – occurred within six months. Just to make myself clear, that’s two months less than Justin and Selena have actually been dating. So yes, it is totally OK to throw “love” around in this time frame.

In fact, I believe it’s OK to tell your man I love you any time after you hit the three-month relationship mark. Of course, this depends on a) whether you actually feel genuine love or not b) how fast your relationship is progressing and c) whether he says it first. NEVER be the first person to tell him you love him — let him tell you, or you are going to freak him out and potentially drive him away.

We don’t know when J&S first started confessing these massive feelings for one another, but if they did only happen really recently, then there’s a very, very good chance the two have a shot at lasting for a long time. Emotions that build over time are the best, as they’re genuine.

Regardless, it’s a wonderful thing when your feelings are reciprocated. All you need (to hear) is love, right?

You saying that if a girl says she loves a guy first before he says it would drive him away is promoting misogyny and hatred for women, why should a women have to hold back her feelings because of a socially inputted fear of being left? why should a women be the one to have to wait around for a man and why wouldn’t a man potentially drive away a woman by saying he loves her too fast, something that i personally would run kicking and screaming if he said it anywhere NEAR three months, hello psycho? i think that true love would be completely mutual, and if you’re feeling it and he isn’t than you know what get it over with, say how you feel, and if he leaves you it obviously wasn’t true love because true love is infinite and mutual you morons. my feminist human rights teacher once told me that women can be the most sexist people in the world, even over men, and i see it true here.

Two things.
One; she does NOT make him a better person. Since they have started dating, Justin has refused to sign autogrpahs, and he is being mean to his fans. Thats really upsetting, because i absolutely love him:/.

Two; They wern’t a good couple anyway. Also, When i found out they split, in a way i was happy, Because maybe he will go back to his old self. In a way i was sad, because he was crying and stuff:/. She broke his heart:|.

i dont think that they would make a good couple, because Selena is Famous and so is Justin and they are singers and travel, and really if that keeps going on they wouldn’t really have time to spend time together, Thats ONLY my tough of word

awesome.
@I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, BidsNew.com

I love Justin & Selena and I think what they are doing is adorable! Except for the fact that the “L” word seems to be going a little to far to the “S” word. I mean Selena is 18 and he is 17. Isn’t that ilegal?

i know adults who use the “L” word at anytime in their relationships, so who cares if Selena & Justin are saying it. It looks like they mean it. Are you jealous Laura? You seem to talk negatively about these 2 a lot.

i meant adults use the “L” word and don’t mean it. age doesn’t matter. they’re doing exactly what they should be doing and that’s learning about and falling in love.
