Dear Miss Emily:

HOW LONG SHOULD A PERSON WAIT TO HEAR "I LOVE YOU."  IS ALMOST 2 YRS TOO LONG?

----------------Miss Emily's advice--------------

I don't think there are any set rules.  Some people are just not capable of saying the words and, then, it gets down to how much they show love in actions rather than words.  If neither occurs in a relationship, there isn't much of a relationship, in my opinion.  In your case, I hope this isn't the case.
