You've just started a new relationship. S/He's sexy, smart, and funny. You both have similar interests. Everything is going peachy-keen until the bomb drops:

"I Love You"

It may be that its on the phone, or right before s/he drops you off after a date. The effect is always the same. Panic. Fear. Annoyance.

Now what's a child to do? Do you say "I love you" back and hopelessly doom yourself to an endless cycle of continous echoing "I love you"/"I love you, too"????

Or do you ignore it and hope it goes away?
