Here’s what it all means: In the grand scheme of a long-term relationship, three months is fast.When you say "I love you" at this time, it's like saying I love this novelty in my life -- like I love this season's new handbag.This is a shared "I love you," like everything else in your relationship.You had your first big, blowout fight and afterwards came the "I love yous" and the realization that you’re committed to caring for this person -- not arguing with him/her. Despite maintaining individual lives, yours isn’t complete without knowing everything about the other person’s. Love is a good enough reason and explanation for your actions.You don’t just mean, "You are an amazing person"; you also mean, "You are my best friend."It’s the kind of "I love you" that goes deeper beyond what this person can offer you or what you can offer him/her. Now, you love your partner as if there weren’t a time in which you didn’t.... You’re in a new place now -- a place of sincerity and respect.

Maybe you blurted it out by accident or maybe you were caught up in the moment.
It might not be the kind of love you have for people who've been in your life forever, but it still feels different and special.
No longer are you keeping track of who last paid for dinner.
No longer are you making plans without the other person in mind.
It's nearing the end of the Honeymoon Phase and you both have loved the time spent vacationing together.
