Do you think he'll get it?

S β€’ πŸ’πŸ’‘πŸ˜
So I keep trying to bring up the topic of love and that I love my boyfriend but I always chicken out. If I said do you Like like me or like like like me he'd get it? I know that sounds so childish but I've never told anyone other than family I love them and it's stressing me out thinking that he might not say it back. So help?!? He has said it one time but it looked like it shocked him and I was in shock so never said anything. His friends talk about us loving each other all time when we are all together and it's awkward. Also my nephew ( he's 12) yesterday asked if my boyfriend loved me and my boyfriend said I'm not talking about this with you and got kinda embarrassed and it was awkward for a little after.
