For those married or in a relationship how long was it into the relationship when either of you first said you love the other? Also for those in a relationship how long before you both moved in together. This my first relationship so I don't want to go too fast. Just want to gt a feel for where others have been.

In my last relationship, which ended in March after about 2.5 years, it took us about 3 months to use the L-word.  Don't force it, you'll know when the time is appropriate.  If you have to ask yourself if it's time, the answer is probably not.  And remember love is a decision, not an emotion. 

 

 I'm an old fashioned and religious man, and I don't move-in until I'm married to them.  So my advice is worthless there.

Three months! Any others?

3 months and I was first.  Second, never.

4-6 months for the Love you part, and close to a year to move in, its been 3 and a half years and things are still going great! Marriage isnt that far away.

my wife and i were seeing each other, not exclusively, for 4-5 months, and we were just sitting on my front porch one day, laughing about something, and she was all funny and adorable and beautiful, and it just came out.  i didn't think about saying it, didn't choose to say it.  it was just my reaction to who she was.

well, we were both at a place where we weren't looking for anything serious, and i can still remember the look in her eyes, like a deer in headlights!  i thought i'd messed everything up, so i told her i didn't think about saying that, and she didn't need to reciprocate, but i didn't--couldn't honestly--take it back.

we moved in together after being exclusive for about 6 months, and the start of that was about a year after we met.  

best of luck with everything!  thanks for letting me recount my experience.

Cigar Box Guitars

Does anybody here have any experience with cigar box guitars?  The title is pretty self-explanatory; they're guitars made out of cigar boxes.I've seen people get very creative with these and produce some pretty cool results.  I've made about 10 of them myself, but I'm nowhere near the caliber of some builders.  Hank Snowden has some pretty cool tutorials and guitars if anyone is interested.I've made all of mine electric and they are really fun to shred on.  They're tuned to an open G (GDG.)…See More
