Two conditions must exist:

1. His welfare must be more important to you than anything else except your own salvation.

2. You must love him enough to not care if he doesn't say it back.

Several years after my divorce, I met a lady who's company I enjoyed very much. I fell in love with her almost instantly and eventually I told her. As gently as she could, she placed me in the "friend zone." She said she enjoyed my company but wasn't in love with me. Took me awhile, after shedding a lot of tears, but I came to the conclusion that real love means you put that person's happiness before your own. She later married, had a child and divorced her husband after forgiving him too many times for cheating. We've been good friends ever since, and encourage each other in the hazardous dating world. I've even taken her profile pictures.

So to get back on track here, I use the "L" word very sparingly. That hesitation has cost me dearly at least once.

Only the reasonable and ordinary man knows the answer.

I guess it would depend on the situation and your definition of love - I was told love was choosing the better good for the other person no matter what, so I suppose if you weren't willing to risk the 'no matter what' part its probably too early to say it...but no matter what, I wouldn't say it if I didn't mean it, to me an 'I love you' is a promise.
