The I-love-you milestone is one of the most important moments in a relationship. For both men and women, it takes a lot of time to be prepared to share these words because they aren't just three words. They are a commitment. They create an added responsibility that changes the future of the relationship instantly.
Although there is no rule saying the man needs to say it first, more often than not he will. When he says those words, instantly a woman's thoughts begin to turn.
If it worries you that she did not say I love you back, ask her why. Taking such a big step can be overwhelming, and she probably doesn't want to mess it up. Letting her know it is okay for her to wait to say it back may give her the relief she needs to then tell you how she really feels.
