"I Really, Really Like You"
When you tell a man too soon that you really like him, you're telling him two things:
1) That you've been long in searching for a man to complete you and make your life seem worthwhile, even at the expense of due diligence.
2) That he should get rid of you as soon (after sex) as possible.
You keep spending time with this guy because you think he's attractive, right? You've recognized something worth having all to yourself, and like a team after draft day you're looking to lock down this franchise player ASAP.
Problem is, the average dating man doesn't stamp ASAP on anything except the bedroom, and your true confession over Starbucks coffee or during some drunken post-club phone call won't win him over.
Whether you're 18 and fresh or 30 with a bunch of clocks on you, it's better to just relax and see where the relationship goes. If you don't feel like you're getting out what you've been putting in, kick rocks -- seriously. You'll be doing both of you a favor, but you don't want to look back and see that things fell apart because of your need for verbal transparency.
"I really, really like you." All he hears are the strings from Psycho.
