I've only been told by one girl that she loves me, and I dumped her. I told one girl that I loved her, and she dumped me. I'm not exactly sure how this is supposed to work.
Don't overthink it. If you feel it, say it. If you don't, don't. And if you're not sure, don't stress about it. It's not like flipping a switch. You'll figure it out.
Most important thing in the end is that you're honest. Don't say it because you think she wants you to, don't say it as a polite response, say it because it's what you feel. Or don't, if it's not.
