I think you are in love. If we are in love, we know it. Don't define it down. There is risk. Surely, you could grow apart; both of you are young, he especially. Each of you must permit the other to grow to the men you will each be. Were you actually to grow apart you would need some strength to accept reality and still love him as you would let him go.
But who knows? Maybe such a thing will never happen. As you try making commitments to one another, as you try learning how we adults succeed at commitment, the last thing you should do is be cynical.
