    What does he mean when he says...

    "I care about you deeply"...
    Been dating this guy for less than a year. I think I
    am in love with him...but never said it to him.
    So he says he cares about me deeply.
    I know that could mean a lot of different things..
    and I know some people express things differently.
    Plus he said if I wasn't in his life he would feel "devastated".
    Anyway...I don't wanna jump to conclusions about this
    and think it means more than it does.

    he's probably close to actually saying it! how do you respond when he tells you this?

    It means that he really cares about you and sees you to be a part of his life. I would read it as it is.

    I am very vocal like that too and when I told my girlfriend those things, I meant it. It was because I was starting to fall for her, pretty strongly.

    Don't read into it too much, just take it at face value

    If the theory is that the "ultimate I love you" statement is the end result it could be that he is borderlining his words in order to be cautious. Love is a strong word also a stubborn one to slip the tongue, he may be working around it, until it is just right time to say it, or when the ignition of your goodness gives him no choice, then BLURT! i love you!

    Anyways, he is showing he cares for you and doens't want to lose you. Take the statement for what it is, if you are waiting for him to say, "i love you", I would advise to let it happen when it happens.

    There isnt a problem here, it sounds like he loves you back! It's a nice thing to say.
