My oh says the following lovely things to me and I'd like to know what others make of it. Fwiw it's only been 6months. Were 34 and 42.
I adore you
I'm besotted with you
I'm crazy about you
I've never felt this way about anyone else
Etc

Why won't he say love??!! Is it just too soon?

Believe his actions, not his words at this point. His grandiose words ring quite hollow, btw.

"I've never felt this way about anyone else." hmm

Have you said it? If so and he hasn't said it back he's either a controlling cockwomble or he doesn't love you

Sounds like he simply doesn't want to say it. Sorry.

Has he said he's looking for a long term relationship?

Have you said it?

OP. I mean this kindly but six months is really just the point where you know if you have enough in common to pursue something longer term. Plus, with Covid, this wasn't a standard six months, was it?
I would never want to hear false or forced words. He needs to feel It to say it. He is either not ready to say those words or really doesn't feel it.
Think long and hard.
Do you want to give this more of your time? Love, REAL live, shouldn't be hard.

Or maybe it's just because they are only 6months in lol.

Yes 'I've never felt this way about anyone else' can be a red flag, early on. But at 6 months in, could be perfectly genuine.

Just make sure you know what lovebombing is op and how to spot it and you should be fine.

As for the L word...give it another 6 months.
