Right ways to tell a girl that you love her

You're in love with her. You want her to know that you love her, but you aren't sure how to tell her. "I love you" is a powerful thing to say to someone - but these are also three powerful words. Take a moment to step back from the situation and make sure that you do it right.

Read on how to say "I love you" to a girl.

1. Make sure that you mean it

If you have never been in love before, it may be hard to understand the implications of this phrase. There are many types of love: friendly love, familiar love, romantic love. If you feel that you're romantically in love with this girl, then go ahead and say it - but understand the gravity of your words.

2. Consider your intention

Do not tell a girl "I love you" just to get into her pants, or get her to pay more attention to you. Only say this if you plan to follow up on your words. Romantic love typically implies the level of care and commitment to a person, and you don't want to make this promise if you're going to be "in love" with someone else in a week.

3. Put yourself in her shoes

Do you think this girl loves you back? Has she been in love before, or is this her first emotionally-serious relationship? Be aware that "I love you" can be a heavy phrase to drop onto a budding relationship. If she isn't ready to say the words back, then you might actually make things more complicated with your admission.

4. Try starting with less serious words

Feelings are feelings. But you don't have to jump right into an "I love you." Tell her how much you like her, and use your words and actions to tell her that she means a lot to you. Give her thoughtful compliments; buy or make her personal gifts; show your passion through physical interactions.
