Our expert says:
Firstly a word of caution about using the word love. When this word is used too quickly or too casually people usually end up getting hurt. Sadly you have recently experienced this. Romantic feelings are often very intense and as a result people will rush ahead. They will also want someone to say they love them because it is a great thing to hear from someone, it affirms us and makes us feel good about ourselves.
However, if someone says they love you because they feel the other person expects this rather than it being a true emotion people get hurt, and feel let down, because the notion of love is something enduring.
If he needs to concentrate on his studies then that is something important he needs to attend to. Many young people choose to keep more serious relationships until later in their lives and this is a personal choice.
To prevent yourself getting hurt again, I would advise you to be careful about the word love and allow a relationship to develop for a while before considering using or expecting to hear this word. Enjoy a relationship for what it is and try not to rush ahead into its future - be in the here and now.
