- How to thank someone for being there
- How to give a compliment
- ❤️How to say I love you (partner)
- Before sharing your feelings, be sure you’re clear on your own feelings.
- Consider that everyone has their own love language. Try to figure out your loved one’s language and speak to them in the way that will be most meaningful to them.
- Consider writing your love confession in a letter. Not only is it highly romantic, but it also gives the other person time to consider their own feelings and respond thoughtfully.
- Remember that a love confession does not entitle you to anything from them – not their affection nor their feelings.
- “You may be surprised to hear this, but…”
- “Something happened to me when I met you. It was like…”
- “You’re wonderful in … ways.”
- “I would like to see you again.”
- “I suggest…place and time, because…”
- “I find you in every poem I read and I hear you in every love song on the radio.”
- “My heart turns to honey when I think of you.”
- “I’ve wanted to tell you for such a long time, but I have feelings for you. Strong feelings.”
- “J’étais si près de toi que j’ai. Froid près des autres.”
- “I’m in the middle of a meeting, but I can’t concentrate because thoughts of you keep pushing the facts and figures straight out of my head.”
Are you scared of saying ‘I love you?’
Excerpt from PsychCenter
It’s natural to hesitate about saying “I love you” for the first time in a relationship.
“Early in a relationship, admitting that you love someone can feel extremely vulnerable. Many of us are risk averse when it comes to our emotions,” explains Dr. David Helfand, a licensed clinical psychologist in Saint Johnsbury, Vermont. “It’s easier to ignore them, deny them, and especially not communicate them.”
Some reasons why you may be scared of saying “I love you” include:
- insecure attachment styles
- abandonment anxiety
- fear of intimacy
- an emotionally unavailable partner
