You may be surprised to learn that men, not women, are typically the first to say “I love you” in a relationship.  On average, it takes a guy 88 days to say the three magic words, while women take a little longer (134 days).  Almost 40% of men say “I love you” within the first month of a relationship, compared to just 23% of women.  Overall, it seems men are smashing stereotypes by being quicker to commit than their female counterparts- they’re also usually the first to meet the parents and move in with their partners.
