I love the way your eyes sparkle in the daylight sun. Your beautiful smile takes my breath away. I can't spend a day without you.

Love always,

Ignore Me

Dear Steven,
If you ever find this letter, I am so sorry. I know it may look like I like that other guy, but heck no. I smile every day at you. I love to see you every day, not him. He is so mean now--not the way he used to be--but I missed my chance to tell you. I hooked you up with her, and this is my punishment. Never frown, because I fell in 'love' with your smile. I...I...
I LOVE you!

But ignore me.
Its better that way.

Dear Simon,

I love you with all my heart and soul. I'm glad we are going out with each other again. I miss you all the time: when I am not with you or with you. I want to stay with you for ever and ever.

Dear B.D.V.D.

Dear B.D.V.D.,
My friend told me you had feelings for me, and that when you first saw me you fell in love with me.
I didnt realize my feelings for you until now, which is a good thing and a bad thing. I have a feeling you don't like me anymore. When I had the chance I should have said, "yes!" and that I had feelings for your cute smile.

Dear JCC

Dear JCC,

If you ever read this I want you to know that I have been falling for you ever since you gave me that really cute compliment in 6th period English. You made me feel beautiful and confident in myself. A really weird dream later came up after that day. You and me were boyfriend and girlfriend. We were holding hands, hugging and kissing. The magic that combusted from me in that dream was incredible. I later realized how much you meant to me. There's something about you that attracts me. Your sweet charismatic smile is all I need to brighten up my day. Your stunning green eyes just blow me away into a magic galaxy. Whenever our eyes meet in hallways, I feel as if there is no one else but you and me. Those are the moments I wish could pause and replay forever. On the day of my sweet sixteen party, your presence was extravagant and meaningful. When our hands touched in the dance floor, I felt that magic I experienced in the dream. It felt right. I just want you to know that I have never felt like this before for someone. You're everywhere to me. I hope you are able to communicate and maybe someday make that dream reality.

Always sparkle

Dear Rayne,
You sparkle when you see the sun, just like me when I see you. I lived for this day to say I want to sparkle with you. If I don't I will run on endless love for you.
Always Sparkle

Does it ever occur to you?

Dear Nate,
Does it ever occur to you that I stare at you all the time? HOPEFULLY NOT! You are the cutest boy I have ever seen and I want to tell you... I LOVE YOU!
Maria... um, I mean Kelsey!

I have a big crush on you, but I'm too afraid to admit it. Please stay the way you are, and please tell me who you like, cause without you I would never have a real true love. You're the only person on the earth for the reason of flowers.

I saw you in the hallway, and my heart skipped a beat looking at your angel-like face. I want you to be my boyfriend soooo bad. I don't ever stop thinking about you--its creepy, I know. I see you in my dreams and we know.

I hope you read this.

Listen Philip

Dear Philip,
Listen, I know what I did was wrong, but I believe that our love is strong enough to overcome it. You are the only man I want in my life, and I would be helpless without you. Your smile lights the darkest corners of my very soul. When you look at me I feel my heart become like wax melting away within my chest. I tried to say goodbye, but I choked. I tried to walk away, but my heart tore. You're the reason I soldier on, you're what keeps my going through the day. If I lost you, I would lose every reason for breathing on this God-forsaken earth. The sun rises in the morning just to see your shining face. Please, Philip, promise to be mine forever, and never let me go.

I've liked you from the start

Dear Adrian,

I've liked you from the start and I always will. No matter if the answer is no or yes, I will always like you.

Your Secret Admirer (From Your School)

Dear Steven

Dear Steven,
When you find this letter, I am sincerely sorry. I don't want to make your life any harder. You already have a girlfriend. To me, she is revolting. I..I REALLY like you. And when your girlfriend is dumped, I am gonna move right in! It is my fault I didn't tell you sooner that I liked you.
Love forever,
FunnehGirl To You

I am so confused. I don't want to play a three-year-old game, so I guess I'm just going to come out and say it. I like you so much. I can't explain why--you just seem like the only person that I want to give all my attention to. I would like to know if you like me, but I'm afraid of what you will say. It took a lot of courage to write this, and it's tough for me to confront you. Now that I have, I feel like no one can stop me.

We were best friends and I was the only one who didn't know you wanted to be more than that, and you were the only one who didn't know I wanted to be more than that. I love you and that sweet and funny tone you use to talk to just me.

Dear Kyle,

I really like you, but it feels like you don't even notice me. You're totally cute and I really like you. Meet me on the play ground.

- Love Your Secret Admirer :)

Dear Derik

Dear Derik,
I love the way you smile at me and notice I am there.
You follow me around to make sure I am safe.
You are the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I will always love you no matter what.
We have had our odds and ends, but in the end, everything is like a happy fairytale ending: the prince sweeps Cynderella off her feet!

Dear Blaise

Dear Blaise,
I know it sounds weird,
But I am soo happy we're friends now.
I'm happy that we have secrets.
I'm happy we share feelings.
I'm happy we joke and talk and ignore what
other kids say.
But please don't ignore what I have to say.
I really like you, and I want you to like me back. Please send me a letter back.
I like you.

I love you so much.

Dear you,
I love you so much. I think you are so cute when you laugh!

Your secret admirer (I am a boy, not a girl.)

Dear CJ

Dear CJ,

I notice you, comfort you, hold onto you tight, play with your hair, call you at night, protect you, talk to you, admire you, spend time with you (I try to), be your "Juliet"! :D Care for you, shelter you, laugh with you, hold your hand, kiss your cheek, cry with you, miss you when you're not around, compliment you, flirt with you, daydream about you, tease you in a loving way, embarrass myself for you, give you a nickname. I have done all of these things and you haven't noticed. I just wanted to let you know... I LOVE YOU, CJ!

My feelings for you are so strong.

Dear Eddy,
My feelings for you are so strong. I don't care if you're younger than me. I just don't care. All I care is having you close by me. I never felt this way about someone like this. I know you like me too, but I feel like you don't anymore. I miss what we had at the start. We would flirt and talk non-stop. Now we hardly talk anymore. It makes me really sad cause I don't want to lose you. You're the best thing that came my way. I love you, Eddy. You make me feel different. I love your personality. I just love everything about you. Sometimes I wonder if you love everything about me, too. I want to be your girlfriend. I want you. It breaks my heart that I can't have you. I just miss what we had before and I hope that we can become something someday.

Dear Brad

Dear Brad,

You see me every day just trying to be the same, but you never understand the way I feel about you. When you walk past me, I just put my head down. It's like I never existed. So will you just listen to what I have to say? Baby, I'm in love with you....

Over It

You go on like it's nothing, but what you said to me really hurts. You could have told me that you didn't like me instead of telling my best friend. You made me believe I had a chance, but why? Because every body likes you? Well, I don't need you like those other girls do, 'cause I can see right through your game you play, and all I gotta say is: I'm over it!

We both know. I know that you look at me differently than any other girl. Why you won't admit it, I have no clue. I wish I could tell you how much I love you. I would do anything just to be with you. I wish I could tell you this when you're feeling upset or down on yourself. I wish I could. Even the little things prove that we are meant to be. I wish you would make a move. I know our age difference cannot keep us apart. The intense conversations that we've had also prove it. The way you hug feels like you don't ever want to let go. Neither do I. I dream everyday about being with you. Kissing you, marrying you, dancing with you, growing old with you. I know my dreams will come true one day, I know.

I love you more than I've ever loved anybody.
I love you, Adam.

To Shona,

To Shona,

Words can't describe how much I love and cherish you. On this Valentine's Day, I could write 100 words but I'll just settle for 3. You're my Wonderwall.

Dear Robyn

Dear Robyn,
Your eyes are like twinkling stars from above,
your beauty is everlasting,
your smile overcomes me.
Will you go out with me?

I just wanted to say that you are the most beautiful girl in the world. You mean the world to me. I love you more than anything, so please love me forever.

Your boyfriend,

Im not supposed to love you.

Im not supposed to love you.
Im not supposed to care.
Im not supposed to live my life wishing you were there.
Im not suppose to wonder where you are or what you've done.
Im sorry I can't help myself, 'cause I'm in love with you.

Andrew, I know we have gone out a couple times

Dear Andrew,

Andrew, I know we have gone out a couple times, but I don't know what to think when I see you -- everyday. I know that I broke up with you. I know that you might not be going to this school next year, but I really had to get this out.

When I see you I think :
:does he wanna talk
:does he still like me
:does he wanna go out again

When I think of you I see:
:hot! (most of the time, lolz)
:that sparkle in your eye
But most of all...

I see the other half that makes me whole. I don't know if you've ever heard of this website before, but I hope you find it soon (not, lol).

Love, Bumble bee
C'mon, you gotta know who this is!

Dear N

Dear N,

Your eyes are like the Caribbean sea: blue, inspirational, and spontaneous. Your hair is so long and shiny brown, no wonder I'm in love with you.

So here's my question: will you go out with me?

Dear Israel

Dear Israel,

I like you too much to say in words.
I think of you every time I see flying birds.
You seem to ignore me every day.
My chances are low I must say.
I wish you liked me like I like you,
but I keep thinking it'll never be true.

I like you a lot, and I think it was so sweet of you to write me a Valentine's Day card with cut out hearts and all that stuff. That was so sweet.

Dear Boo

Dear Boo,

You broke my heart. I should have known you didn't love me from the start. I was a fool to let you enter my heart. But here's how I feel: you act like you're a King and you own some kinda Throne. You left me. Was it for her, or was it all just popularity? I wonder to myself: how did you really feel? You could have just told me you were not in love. You were my heart and soul, and know because of you, I am afraid to love. No matter how hard I try, I can't forget you, but I will always so to myself I could never forgive you. But know: I finally see I do not need you. I am a phenomenal woman!

Sweetest Bachelor

I can't believe that someone as sweet and cute as you doesn't have a girlfriend yet! I can't stop thinking about you and I don't think I ever will be able to tell you how much I love you. You will never understand!

Your secret lover...?

Hunkey Junkey Funkey Monkey,

Hey hunkey junkey funkey monkey,

I love you so so so much! When our eyes first met, I saw a sun hit the top of your head, and I knew you were the one. I took a picture of you and pinned it to my wall, and every night I take a good look at it and I say I love you to it all the time. You are my knight in shining armor and I even put a horse on my wall and named it after you. You are my love muffin and right now my heart is pounding your name. This took me not a long time to write because it's so easy to say what I feel about you, and I can say what I feel about you to anyone. See you later and don't you forget it.

~Your hunkey monkey

Dear Edward

Dear Edward;
I know this seems strange and kind of odd as you are a junior and I a lowly freshman girl, but the truth is, over the past year I kind of developed very intense passionate crush on you. I love you and it is harder to keep it from you in fear of getting a hurt heart.
