In a new relationship saying I love you can be one of the most exciting yet nerve wracking times. On the one hand if ‘I love you’ is reciprocated by your new partner, this can be an incredibly magical time. On the other hand, if they don’t reply, a lead balloon falls to the floor, the tumble weed rolls by and the relationship is doomed from that moment.
But what if you never said it? What if you went through the relationship agreeing NOT to say, ‘l love you?’
