Knowing how to tell someone you love them can help you in creating one of the most romantic and special moments of your life.
Confessing your feelings is, after all, a big deal. Picking the right moment and right setting is something your partner and you will remember for a lifetime.
This is why it’s great when you put some thought into it.
A part of me used to consider over the top grand gestures to be the way to tell someone you love them but it was only after some maturity did I realize that the great event itself is to love someone.
And that’s something that has stuck with me ever since.
What is the one way I could tell this person I love them that is unique to the two of us?
The thing about a special moment is that is often is erratic. You can try to work towards it but at the end of the day, those moments are mostly felt unexpectedly.
With that being said, here are some tips on how to tell someone you love them.
1. Speak From The Heart
The best speeches and dialogues are those that are truthful and from the heart.
I frequently mention that one of the most attractive features in a person is their degree of authenticity.
This is your ability to remain true to who you are despite the situation you’re in.
This plays a role in how to tell someone you love them.
When you speak from the heart, you are sharing your feelings in an authentic way that the other person will not only notice but truly appreciate.
2. Choose The Right Moment
I’m someone who has recently adopted the mindset that there’s never the perfect moment to do something but there is a right or wrong moment.
The right moment is usually felt within your heart.
It could be after sharing a very special experience with each other or during the most normal conversations.
Thing is, as long as you’re being authentic and sharing it at a time that is appropriate, you will often create a moment worth remembering.
As a rule of thumb, never force love.
If you feel like you’re jumping hurdles and forcing a moment to be right, it’s usually not a good idea to tell someone you love them.
Always listen to your gut during big moments in your life.
Even if your gut is telling you that this isn’t the time to share your feelings, listen to it.
3. Do It When You Two Are Alone
Telling someone you love them is a big deal. It puts both of you in a vulnerable spot.
You want to be able to focus on the moment but that is difficult when you have a ton of people around.
And on the off chance that your partner is taken aback by confessions of love and is known for not reacting a certain way at first, being alone can save you from unnecessary embarrassment if others are around.
There are more reasons to do it when you’re alone than when you’re surrounded by people.
4. Let Your Actions Speak Louder Than Your Words
Build a connection with someone long enough and often you don’t even need to say things out loud for them to know exactly how you feel.
If you know of a way of showing your love for someone that doesn’t require you to say much but the message will be received loud and clear, by all means, go ahead and do it.
At the end of the day, love is expressed in many ways. You can judge which way is best for your situation.
5. Be Direct And Don’t Wait Too Long
As much as it is important to wait for the right moment, don’t waste too much time either.
I would say there is far more regret attached to waiting too long and missing an opportunity to tell someone you love them rather than telling them too soon or not at the right moment.
And be direct.
Sometimes, it may necessitate you to say those 3 words – I love you. They’re not the easiest to say at times but they are the most powerful words you could use.
