How To Tell Someone You Love Them: Telling Them You’re In Love

Do you want to know how to tell someone you love them?  Learning all about romance and is fine and good for someone who is already in a romantic relationship with a boyfriend, girlfriend, wife or husband.  But what about shy single people who have yet to get around to telling that special someone that they love them?  Re-declaring your affection for your lover is easy to do after you’ve “broken the ice,” so to speak, but for a shy person, being in love and not knowing how to tell someone you love them can be a nerve-wracking experience.

Many people are naturally shy and nervous around people of the opposite sex, but if you’re one of them there are plenty of ways to overcome your shyness and gain the courage you need to tell that special person that you love them with all your heart.

Before we get into different ways for a shy person to say “I love you,” though, it’s important to clarify one thing: in many cases, actually telling someone you love them isn’t necessary to communicate your strong feelings about them at all.  There are infinitely more ways to show someone you love them than there are to tell someone you love them.  If you’re a shy person who is nervous about saying those special words, you may want to concentrate on using actions to express your love rather than words . . . at least until you build up the comfort and courage you need.

Once you do feel that it’s time to tell your sweetheart you love them, though, you have plenty of methods available to you that will help you overcome your shyness and declare your affection.  The most direct and unabashed way, of course, is to just come out and say it . . . although it always helps to wait for the right romantic moment.  During a romantic movie, after a special date, or even while you’re in a romantic embrace are all perfect times to say those special words.

Say I Love You!

For many shy people, however, simply saying “I love you” is anything but simple.  If you’re still too nervous and shy to mouth the words, there’s nothing to be ashamed of.  Have you thought about putting them down on paper, instead, and letting your sweetheart know that you love them with all your heart in spite of your shyness?  If you’re lover enjoys receiving romantic cards or letters, that might be the perfect way for you to express your true feelings.

And when it comes to the written word, never overlook modern technology as a way for you to overcome your shyness and express yourself.  Romantic emails, romantic instant messages and even romantic text messages are all perfectly acceptable ways for you to declare your love.

There is no end to the number of ways you can overcome your nervousness and tell that special someone that you love them.  Just remember: you only get to say “I love you” for the first time once.  Make sure that the method you choose is something you’re comfortable with, something that your sweetheart will appreciate, and something that you’ll both remember for the rest of your romantic lives together!
