If you two were a personal ad, you'd be the one awash in verbiage about cozy cuddles by the fire and sunset walks on the beach. You snuggle and coo -- I love you hunny-bunny! Not half as much as I love you, cutsie-wootsie!
All that warm-puppy love is sweet, but you're making everyone else at the table sick, particularly since they see through the act. The truth is that you two are much more in love with love than you are with each other, and that you've spent so much time polishing your adoring-lovers act that you haven't truly gotten to know each other. It's time to drop the syrup, and start doing some real work. You guys like each other, right? Well, right? If you have to pause before answering that question, there's a reason why. Do you share values? Where do you see this relationship going? A few discussions should get things started. It's difficult, to be sure, to puncture the sweet pink balloon you've been living in, but it's a dream world, one that can and should be replaced with something solid and dependable.
