He texted me "I ❤ u" when we've been dating for a fairly short time. What does he mean?

I have been dating a guy for three months now. Things have progressed pretty quick. We see each other five times a week if not more. I met all of his best friends from almost the get go, he has met my parents, and last week asked me to meet his sister and brother in law which is a big deal for him because he tends to keep his love life and family life separate unless he feels like things are getting serious. The other night after a few drinks and in the heat of a moment I whispered "I love you." When I woke up the next day I had a pit in the bottom of my stomach. I didn't want to be the first one to say it, and I don't even know if he heard me. We got together after work as always, made dinner, and everything seemed normal. He never made any mention of my three little words which leads me to believe he did not hear me say it. Knowing him, he would bring it up and say something like "Do you remember what you said last night?" in his jokingly taunting tone. Should I even bring up that I said anything, or just let things run their course? I also never thought I would be the girl to fall in love in three months, but I guess crazier things have happened. Let me just note that I would really like to say it at a later time when it is more appropriate and I was not looking for him to say it back by any means. Just because I feel this way already does not mean he should as well.

I met this Australian guy 5 years ago, he was my English teacher for three months. After that, we met occasionally for a cup of coffee or little things like that. He seems interested in me but never told me much. I am confused because when he is drunk he call me through Skype or by phone (even if he is in Australia) showing interest for me...last time he told me: "I love you"...but I know..he was drunk!

Theres this guy I've been friends with for 3 years, he and I have always been good friends and are involved in a lot of the same events so we spend a lot of time together. He has never made it known that he likes me but I know that he has off and on for the entire time that we have known each other because his friends have told me so. This year however, we went to homecoming together but nothing happened. We are kinda a thing now but haven't been actually involved with each other physically. Yesterday, we got together to study for midterms and while we were in the car, he out of the blue kissed me. It wasn't so big of a deal that he did that but when I hugged him afterwards, he said "I love you." I had no clue what to do and keep in mind, this guy is in the grade below me so he's super shy around me especially considering I'm a senior. He also has very little experience with girls.

I've been good friends with this girl for years but I've started developing feelings for her lately. The thing is, I'm not sure if she likes me back.
She is sooo nice. She often texts me to ask about how my exam or concert was and we have lunch together very often. We've gone to museums, read original poetry, etc. Always the two of us alone, but I don't know if it was just because we were friends. At the time I didn't really think about it.
She once called me while drunk and her friend was teasing her and repeatedly shouting "I LOVE YOU" and my friend sounded pretty embarrassed but I thought they were having fun and it was a long time ago. I never use Facebook but she once (again, long time ago) commented I was "super cute" on my profile pic. Her boyfriend's kinda jealous of me and she WAS often jealous of other girl friends. These paragraphs are stupid but I had to write them: I'm so in love now!
Finally, I opened her diary by accident yesterday (it was on her iPad I didn't mean it). I didn't read it because I don't want to be an asshole but it said something like "I want you to take photographs of me and tell me I look pretty"--I realized it was her diary and close it--, which is exactly what we did last week but it may be just a quote from somewhere else, or a text she wrote for someone else.
Now I feel like she doesn't like me at all because I didn't notice those hints before (if they were hints). What do you guys think?
DISCLAIMER: She'd been dating this dude for a year straight but like a month ago she found out he was cheating. They broke up but still see each other even when she doesn't always feel excellent about it. I used to like the guy but I hate that he cheats on her.

We were dating for almost a year. Everything seemed to be fine (with of course minor issues a couple fights, but nothing that we weren't able to overcome and work on). He always told me he was going to marry me, he would never leave me, and how I was the best girlfriend he ever had. Just in the past month he had even said all that. We were both very stressed with money, vehicle, and living situations which sometimes caused each of us to be a little sensitive and take things the other said/did to heart. But again, we never had a problem that wasn't overcome within an hour or two. Just within the last 2 weeks, something changed. He became withdrawn and distant. When I would ask, he would tell me he was depressed and stressed about all our stressors in our life. I understood and let him know I'm always here for him. Things would seem to get back to normal and then all of a sudden things felt strange again. I began to wonder if someone else was in the picture (for reasons such as him not wanting to see me as much as normal, him texting people he never usually texted, and his all of a sudden change of hanging out with people from work). He assured me there was no one else. Well, one day he came home from work and didn't seem very happy to see me like he normally would. He began crying and I tried to comfort him and ask what was wrong. He told me he didn't think he could do this anymore. I tried to talk it out, I tried to assure him we could get through it, but nothing worked. It ended up I packed my things and he drove me home. When we were all done bringing my things in, he stood there like he didn't want to leave. He hugged me and we started crying again and he said he was so sorry. He kissed me and turned and left. After that, I would hear from him a little each day with texts like, "I just want you to be okay. I know I f***ed up and now there's no going back..." "I don't know what I want right now. You told me to tell you when I wasn't happy and I did. But I wish I didn't because you would still be here. I wish I could take it all back." "You still mean everything to me. It was nothing you did. You're amazing." "I never said you weren't making me happy. I'm not happy with anything at all." "I love you. I can't stop thinking about you." and etc. We started to talk things out and the theory that we spent almost every single day together doing the same thing got to us, which I said could have been changed before this drastic move. He agreed. He also admitted that he has been hanging out with girls from work but that he did not leave me for anyone and no one was in the picture. Then 2 nights ago, he texted and asked if he could come see me. I told him yes. It was awkward at first and I was still hurt. Eventually we got talking about things and we agreed things could have been handled a lot differently. He told me he just needed to work on himself and figure things out. He again said no one was in the picture and that he didn't know what was going to happen in the future or even tomorrow. We both cried and he held me near him. He ended up telling me he missed my kisses, kissed me on the forehead, and then hesitating first, he kissed me on the lips. It felt like our first kiss all over again. One thing led to another and things happened that probably shouldn't have. Afterwards, we were laughing, joking, and making fun of our silliness with the whole situation. He even called me "baby" at one point and hadn't since before he broke up with me days earlier. He even said that when he brought me the rest of my things I needed that he might come get me from work, maybe even another day he would bring his dog to visit me, and he might even forget one of my things just so he can come pick me up another day. He ended it with "I'm glad we could laugh and joke around because we both know this is stupid. It's so stupid." He texted me once he got home and even agreed that our kiss felt like our first and he wanted to be sure I knew he didn't come over just for a certain something. He said goodnight and I went to bed. Since that I haven't heard a single word from him.

My boyfriend accidentally dropped two index cards in my room the other day. One was titled "Reasons to Leave" and the other "Reasons to Stay". They were essentially pros and cons on whether or not he should break up with me.
The cons included things such as "flirting with other guys" "canceling plans" "afraid of her breaking my heart". While the pros only had the same words reworded over and over; "I love her."
It made me die inside. I felt like there must not be any real reason to stay with me, except out of comfort. He didn't list a single good thing about me personally. I felt like he didn't love me, he only loved how I made him feel. I told him this (woohoo, communication) and in addition to saying that he wrote the cards months ago when he was upset, this was his response.

So I met this guy on a school trip with another school and we started talking because of a mutual friend, anyway we really got along, we like the same music and stuff, so I started tonlike him. After I got back from this trip I told some friends about him and they said I had to ask for our mutual friend for his number, which I eventually did. We started texting and are often until midnight just talking about stuff. He says 'I love you' and 'I miss you' and things like that a lot with ';)', for example I insulted him about something and he said, 'it's okay, I forgive you because I love you so much ;) xx' and things like that.

We had a long distance relationship (only about an hours and a half apart), the relationship had a great start it was very natural, like we had been together for months even at first, but moved very quickly-as in he dropped the L word on the 2nd date, dropping hints and saying things like "I'd never thought about marriage or kids until I met you" or "I could wake up to you every morning and be really happy." We established we were exclusive and not seeing other people, but he didn't want to put the boyfriend girlfriend title on it. 2 months he starts being distant and holding things back, and hiding things. After a big fight I decided that although I deeply cared for him it was not a healthy relationship and broke it off. He reacted by calling and texting me for 3 1/2 hours, of him swearing, name calling, revealing that he had cheated and started seeing another girl, but he missed me and didn't want to say goodbye. It has now been 3 weeks since the break up, he continues to text and call me saying he misses me, and comparing me to his new girlfriend and asking for relationship advice, he insists that we can be friends; even though I have said I didn't think it was a good idea.

My crush and I had a great time hanging out at an after school club. I think he likes me but is too shy to make a move. People were playing Just Dance and the only time he danced was when I did. We shared food we'd made and either sat in chairs next to each other or side by side on a table. He took pictures of just me with my camera and of just me and him with his phone and also of us with a friend. A couple of times he just snuck up on me to take a picture. We cleaned up afterward and I drove him home. It's only a five minute drive so I barely had time to get up the nerve to blurt out how I feel, so I just made small talk.
He says we are in a relationship and it's intimate, his words. He remembers everything I've ever said to him and acts hurt if I don't. Just today he mentioned the last time our club met he blew me off because we'd had a fight about his teasing me and pushing me away to test me and I made him cry. I didn't mean to. Then in my car he said the last time he was in my car I had hated him because he overslept one day this summer when he'd asked me to hang out. I got so frustrated because I love him and we've told each other I love you a lot. How can he not know? He also used to sneak up hug me every day and will hug me if I ask but doesn't offer anymore. He hugs lots of guys and girls I know he has zero interest in, so why not me? A guy friend asked me if it wasn't great to get hugs from my crush and I said i wouldn't know anymore and he said he wasn't sure I liked hugs. I told him I always do. A about a week ago we had a long tight hug and he rubbed his stubbly cheek on mine and I thought he was finally going to kiss me, but no and now I have to beg for hugs.

My bf and I had been together for about 2 months now. We've had a lot of conflict about social media flirting (mostly on his part) almost up to the point of breaking up several times during those 2 months. He had deleted his social media since then and he had been very loving and affectionate both in texts and in person since then. But at the time that he was busy with his social media he was hot and cold to me. His texting has changed lately and I'm wondering if it's a sign of things to come... He has been consistent at texting "I love you so much/very much" on his goodnight texts but for the past week he had mentioned it only once or twice and sometimes not at all on his goodnight texts. He mentions it sometimes at other times and he still texts regularly.

So my other post wasn't a big deal. I wasn't expecting anything from him. But because I'm at the age where there's a lot of boys in my life, I get confuse sometimes especially when none has ever caught my attention. Yeah, basically I get mixed signals on a daily basis. Boys are so confusing, and they call us girls confusing. So there's thing guy, "K", so it doesn't get confusing. We talk a lot, he says he enjoys my company and talking to me and says I'm really fun. Sometimes he'd say "I miss you" cutely. And today we were joking around and he said, "I'm kidding, I love you Paula (my name)." I of course was taken back, because it's the first time a guy has said that to me. I know I shouldn't take it seriously. And so I replied, "Yeah..." I think that made it awkward. Because he said, "Oh... Ok..."
