i love you too soon

The cool breezes of autumn may have you looking for something a bit more human than a pillow to snuggle with. As you start the hunt for fall romance or continue with your current relationship, a survey from the makers of Wet personal lubricants has a few tips to share.

Most romantic comedies (or a good episode of How I Met Your Mother) would have you think that saying "I love you" too early in a relationship can send your partner heading for the hills.

But Wet's survey revealed that 44 percent of people like to wait at least six months before confessing their love. However, almost one-third of respondents let the L-word loose within one week of meeting someone. Meanwhile, 25 percent will only say it if their partner does first.

More than half of the respondents in Wet's survey say experimenting between the sheets or going for a romantic stroll were ideal dates. To set the mood for the evening, the majority of respondents go for romantic foods like champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. More than 60 percent would respond to a romantic gesture with a passionate kiss.

So what does that mean for you? Well, for one, maybe hold off on saying those three important words until you actually feel like you're in love. Otherwise, you could be sending the wrong message to your new beau.
