Love is in the air and especially today, no? Valentine’s Day is the day people express their feelings for each other because there’s so much love all around, it kinda gives them the confidence to take initiative. It’s not easy to let your guard down and put yourself out there, but sometimes, it’s the right thing to do. If you have a  crush on someone and are planning to tell them how you feel, here are a few things you might want to keep in mind while doing so.

1. Take Advice

Before you do anything, it’s always good to take advice from loved ones. The people who know you very well will always give you the best suggestions on how you should express yourself. Of course, by the end of it, you should do what you feel is right, but you can take advice nonetheless.

2. Be Calm

It’s important to be calm and composed as opposed to hyper and jumpy. Being breezy will give you more time to articulately express your feelings.

3. Don’t Mug It Up & Be Clear

Don’t eff it up by mugging lines like you’re rehearsing for a play. It should be as genuine as it can be, only then, the person at the receiving end will know the truth. And make sure to be articulate and clear about what you’re going to say. Don’t beat around the bush and speak directly instead.

4. Being Nervous Is Okay

Don’t beat yourself up for being nervous. It isn’t easy to tell someone that you have a crush on them so cut yourself some slack. Having said that, don’t let the nerves get to you completely.

5. Do Not Do It Over A Text

It’s better to do this in person so you can see the person’s reaction and speak the rest depending on what the person says. Also, texts never deliver the tone of messages clearly, so the person can misunderstand it easily!

6. Don’t Overthink It

Overthinking might ruin it, so don’t complicate it. Keep it smooth and simple.

7. A Small Gesture Can Make A Big Impact

Actions speak louder than words! A small gesture can go a long way, if done correctly. Get them something they like, something they may have mentioned casually in a conversation and show them that you were listening. This will surely melt their heart.

Make sure to be as genuine as you can so they know how you actually feel. How would you confess your love for someone? Tell us in the comments below.
