So you get butterflies in your stomach when his name flashes up on your mobile and your heart beats like crazy when you’re with him. You’re in love! But how do you tell him? Everyone has their own way of going about it but here are some tips to give you some ideas…
1- You’re romantic
You’re a real romantic at heart: you do candlelit dinners, midnight strolls hand in hand and all that romantic stuff.
Solution:Surprise him by reversing the usual rules of love. Send red roses to his office with an 'I love you' card!
Watch out! Romantic as he may be, he probably won’t want to be seen blushing in front of his amused (and probably jealous!) colleagues. Test the ground first.
2- You’re a minx
Your nights of passion and days spent in each other's company make you feel that your heart is in harmony with your body. You’re addicted to one another.
Solution: Forget your usual sexy lacy undies that set his heart racing and try wearing simple cotton pants with 'I love you' on them.
Watch out! He might rip off your loving message in the heat of the moment, not notice, or be overcome with emotion and this could affect his ability to carry on with the task in hand(!).
3- You’re shy
Asking for a pound of apples at the market is stressful enough for you, so opening your mouth to reveal your feelings is a hellish experience! No matter how much you practice in front of the mirror, the words just won’t come out.
Solution: If he's sweet-toothed, give him love heart sweets with the message on.
Watch out! He may gobble them down without seeing your message.
4- You’re head over heels
He’s the one for you, you’re the one for him. You’re sure of your feelings and want the whole world to know that you’ve found Mr Right.
Solution: Try declaring your love in your local paper, dedicating a song to him on his favourite radio station or having a dedication/flag at a football match if you want the world to know!
Watch out! He might be shyer than he seems and your very public display might get a lukewarm reception.
5- You’re wary
For 6 months he’s been looking at you all dreamy-eyed but he’s still not said those three magic words that would make you so happy.
Solution: Given you have doubts, keep quiet! Stay in control and say nothing. Leave it to him to make the first move. If he doesn’t, you’ll know how things stand and you won’t feel like you’ve poured your heart out for nothing.
Watch out! Men are fragile creatures who sometimes struggle to express their feelings. Some will wait a long time before committing themselves. You need to let him know he can trust you but, in the end, it’s up to you whether you’re willing to carry on being patient...
6- You’re busy
You're a high-flyer and you never seem to have the time to let him know how you feel, but you want to declare your love in a flamboyant way.
Solution: Get a helping hand! You could send him a dove with a message attached to it or a 'Declaration of Love' gift set complete with love certificate and rose petals! Too cheesy? For something a bit different, what about displaying your romantic message on the side of a van or on an aircraft banner?
Watch out! Love does have a price! You’ll need to dig deep in your pockets to surprise him like this.
