Write her a love note

This is an absolute classic. You can do this by leaving sweet notes around the house or writing her a letter. If you’re into creative writing, such as poetry, use it as a way to tell her how you feel. It goes without saying, make sure to include those 3 words in the note!

Pick out a meaningful gift

Think about what kind of things she likes to buy herself or treat herself to. What do you see her buy often, wear often, or talking about getting? If you’re feeling really lost ask her friends, they know her best! Just make sure they can keep the surprise a secret!

Give her a meaningful experience.

There are a few ways you can do this. Firstly, you could create a new experience based on what she’s interested in.This could be a place she’s mentioned wanting to go. It could also be a self-care activity such as a retreat, or an activity she deeply cares about.

Secondly, you could recreate an experience you know she loved. This could be a previous date that she brings up occasionally. It could also be an interesting place you both went out to eat that left an impression on her, or a trip that you where you bonded. The opportunities to get creative are endless when creating a wonderful experience!

When you suspect it’s mutual 

If you get the feeling she feels the same way about you seize the opportunity to tell her you love her. Just make sure the timing is right. A great way to tell it’s mutual is when she has positive reactions to your suggestions of future plans and commitments together. 

In conversation about the long-term

Discussing larger commitments with her such as someday getting married or starting a family is a huge sign that you’re looking to be with her for the long run. Having these conversations with her about the future can lead to discussing each other’s feelings around having those commitments. It’s a great time to profess your love!

Whilst checking out her hobbies

It gets easier to express your feelings towards her the more time you spend in each other’s company. Doing some of her hobbies together shows that you want to be present in her life. 

Obviously, if her hobby is an active one, it might be a little tricky to tell her you love her. A mid-yoga admission isn’t ideal! If it’s going to galleries or walking in nature, then you might just have a prime opportunity!

In person!

This is easily the most authentic and brave way to tell her you love her. It’s also the most daunting way to deliver the news. It involves showing both courage and vulnerability. But be brave, it’s by far the best way to broach the topic.

If you’re lost for words, there are a few ways to get the convo flowing. You can start by telling her what a perfect day would look like to you (and includes scenarios of you spending quality time together). You can also use other words that express how you feel. Try these phrases to get the ball rolling. 

  • “I often think about you throughout my day.”
  • “I miss you when we’re apart.”
  • “My favorite part of my day is when I get to see your beautiful face.”
  • “I couldn’t picture my world without you in it.”

Doing so will let her know that she has become a big part of life. It also sets you up nicely to head straight into the “I love you” part too!
