Should I just go for it?

My boyfriend and I have been together 6 months, we would both rather crawl across hot coals than talk about feelings. As a bit of background, before we got together we used to go out together 3 - 5 nights a week for a well over a year, clearly besotted with each other but both of us too emotionally stunted to say anything, it was getting ridiculous. Finally had a LOT of beer one night and got together - brilliant!

I want to tell him I love him, because I do, he's awesome. We have endless text exchanges along the lines of 'you're lovely', 'I love that thing you do' etc, but I actually want to look him in the eye and tell him that I love him. I have absolutely no doubt at all that he feels the same.

How do I do it?! Just come out with it? drop it mid sentence? shout it from the car window as I'm driving away? help!

If you have no doubt he feels the same then do it when you're feeling most comfortable!

It really doesn't need to be built up into a massive THING that you should be doing!

Go on!

I'm a sucker for romance.

Just go for it! I think the only thing to bear in mind is that, if it's a surprise (you saying it, rather than feeling it) then he may be too startled to respond, so try not to be disappointed if you just get a blank stare or 'Eh?' as a reaction!
