Love Confessions Letters

Confessing to someone that you have feelings for them is not easy by any stretch of the imagination.

Fortunately, writing down this confession in the form of a letter or email can make it seem a lot more doable. For the person in love who just wants to let the secret out, here are a few crucial tips that can help ensure that coming clean to your crush will lead both of you to a happy future.

1.) 'How Much You Mean To Me' by Bayani

Dear Jourina,
I don't know how to start this letter, because I'm afraid it might be the end of our good acquaintance, or if I'm lucky, the realization of my dreams, which is for you to love me as I love you. I told myself I might as well take the risks because it's the only remedy I know that could unburden this feeling I've been keeping ever since.

Jourina, I love you. I know you'll find it hard to believe me if I tell you now how much you mean to me. I could hardly understand what I feel for you, knowing how to endure those long sleepless nights just thinking only of you.

I've never been like this before. I just don't know how to pour out my feelings for you. I wanted to find the perfect words to make you realize how much I need you and love you, but words continue to elude me, what would they be? Something poetic? I'm sure it should be heartfelt and out of the ordinary. I'm afraid it's no use; every time I look at you, the words came out the same… I love you!

Love always,

2.) Secret Love by Jamie

Dear Brad,

I cannot put in words how I feel about you when I see you walk by. These intense feelings will never go away until I can have you in my arms, and that you realize that there is only one woman for you and it is me. Everyday, I hope that you will come into my life and tell me how you feel because what I feel for you exists only inside my heart. You are the only man that can understand me, and you can only reach it; I give you the key, please unlock what you know can be the love you can only dream of. You are beautiful and I can't help but fall for you deeper every day. I can only hope that the day will arrive when you look deep into my eyes and you tell me what I have been waiting to hear: that you love me the same way. I'm thinking of you always.

Love always,

3) Woodrow Wilson

The White House
September 19, 1915

My noble, incomparable Edith,

I do not know how to express or analyze the conflicting emotions that have surged like a storm through my heart all night long. I only know that first and foremost in all my thoughts has been the glorious confirmation you gave me last night - without effort, unconsciously, as of course - of all I have ever thought of your mind and heart. You have the greatest soul, the noblest nature, the sweetest, most loving heart I have ever known, and my love, my reverence, my admiration for you, you have increased in one evening as I should have thought only a lifetime of intimate, loving association could have increased them. You are more wonderful and lovely in my eyes than you ever were before; and my pride and joy and gratitude that you should love me with such a perfect love are beyond all expression, except in some great poem which I cannot write. 

Your own,

4. 'Beginning to Love in You That Which is Eternal' by Leo Tolstoy
I already love in you your beauty, but I am only beginning to love in you that which is eternal and ever previous – your heat, your soul. Beauty one could get to know and fall in love with in one hour and cease to love it as speedily; but the soul one must learn to know. Believe me, nothing on earth is given without labour, even love, the most beautiful and natural of feelings.

5. 'You've Changed My Life' by Ineng Honey

Thanks for being there when I needed a shoulder to lean on, for patiently listening to my personal problems. Baby, I just want you to know how happy am I to have you in my life and I thank God for that. Thank you for the love and the joy you bring. You've changed my life, Baby.

How to Confess Your Love in a Letter

Be totally honest.
Now is not the time to stand on ceremony. The true emotion of what you write will speak for you. So use this to your advantage. Because it is so hard to say aloud, allow the freedom of writing to help you express how you really feel. The recipient of the letter will most likely be moved to tears at your confession, and may be more likely to return the gesture!

Keep your dignity.
Even though you’re pouring your heart out on the page, try to avoid giving the impression that your life will end without the other person. It should come off as an open confession of your feelings and not a desperate cry for help. Maintain some confidence and self-esteem in your letter, even as you express your devotion to the object of your affection.

Don’t act possessive.
If you intend to confess your love to someone, you’re probably already a little worried about seeming awkward, when all you really want to do is express how you genuinely feel. Fortunately, it’s not too hard to figure this out. Simply look over your letter to make sure that you never make any assumptions about the two of you “belonging together.” Focus on your own feelings without projecting anything onto the other person. This way, they will know that your emotions are honest.

Make it unconditional.
We know it’s a real risk putting yourself out there, and one only you can decide to make. But, no matter how nervous you are, always keep in mind that you stand a better chance if the object of your affection sees you as a warm, open-hearted person. As you tell them how you feel, also let them know that you won’t hold it against them if they don’t return your feelings. This will help you to recover easily if luck isn’t with you.

Double-check everything.
The luxury of letter-writing is that it gives you the opportunity to stop yourself from saying anything that you don’t mean to say. Once you’ve written your letter, read it over carefully to make sure that it comes off as heartfelt, honest, and clear. This doesn’t mean you should obsess too much, of course. When you feel the letter is acceptable, you have to swallow any nervousness and send it at once. Remember that getting these feelings off your chest will be worth whatever answer the object of your affection sends back to you—and that there’s a good chance that answer will be positive!
