Dear Mom,

Most of the time when you say you love me, I just say, "thanks." I don't know why. I do love you. I love you I love you I love you. I hope you know that even though I don't say it. I love you.

I love you.

Romeo and Juliet

I know I'm different. I'm not popular, cool or even hot. But still I see you like me and I just want to tell you I like you too. Even though we are from different worlds, we'll be like Romeo and Juliet. My heart skips beats when I see you. Can't you tell that I can't breathe? Hold my hand. I love you. I need you to tell me I'm too shy. My best friend liked you but so what. Boy, we have something special and no one can deny this. Be my Romeo.

Mom, you are the best.

Dear Drew

Dear Drew,

Your eyes are like the ocean flowing in the wind. Every time I see you, I can't get my eyes off of you. I love you! We have been friends for a long time, and since you started dating someone else, I'm just smiling so you won't know how I feel -- but I love you. Do you love me to?

Dear TA,

I reallly miss you this year. It sucks because you dont go to school or live out here. I hope that we will see eachother again pretty soon. I think im in love with you, though.

Start Talking

I know that our past relationship went wrong. I don't know what I did, but you decided to end it. So, I have one question: was it me, or was it just your feelings? It would be nice if we were still friends, but you ended that, too. This makes me think that, for some reason, you're trying to avoid me. But, Babe, I miss you so much! When I see you looking at me from across the room and our eyes meet, I can still feel the love. It's not the flame it used to be, but there are lots of sparks, like fireworks. But I need answers. So, when you're comfortable, come up to me and start talking. I'll be there and I'll be listening to every word you have to say, because now I realize every word might the last one I hear from you.

Dear Nik

Dear Nik,

I love you so much. I keep thinking of you non stop. I wish I did not have to move, 'cause I want to stay with you, no one else. Well, if you somehow get this message... well, the main words I want to tell you are "I love you."

When I first met you, I didn't think you were anything special. But when I got to know you, you were amazing, smart, funny, sweet, kind, and cute. Now it's way too late to say this, but I have to. I love you so much, it hurts when I think about you.

To Barney from Baby Bop

Dear Barney,

You have had me on your show and watching you act on screen is so cute, I want to cry! This is not puppy love, I truly love you with all of my heart! Even though I am only 7 and you are an adult, passion for you is in the air! I love your purple flesh, and adorable green tummy! Your unblinking eyes make me love you even more! You are so tall and brave and chivalrous! I know you will probably never love me like I love you. Barney... Sweet, Kind, Obese, Barney, you are the reason that I wake up in the morning, and the reason I go to sleep. I dream of you and your luscious hair flowing in the wind while you sing one of your infectious songs! You have a little dinosaur that loves you very much! I love you, Barney!

Forever and always yours,
Baby Bop

Dear Ashley

Dear Ashley,

Your smile is like the sun, your eyes like the moon. Your heart is a ray of love (though for you I have many rays). Please, babe, be my girlfriend. I think you are pretty and cute and I want to be your boyfriend.

Please W/B (write back)

Start Over

I just wanna start over,
But every time the thought comes to mind
I just keep crying. Over and over again...

Every time I ask you what makes me different, you say that I'm different because a girl never made you feel this way.
But when you talk to me, or we are arguing, you say stuff that hits me in the face,
stuff that makes me regret ever falling in love with you.
But every time you say sorry or "Baby I love you," I get taken right back into your game

The stuff happens the same

But then again, here I go again with the tears in my eyes.
I wanna new heart that's never been broken
I wanna new life that hasn't yet been scared
I wanna feel what it feels like to actually be loved,
Not some little kid type love.
I wanna be able to feel the affection, the romance from hugs and kisses.
I just wanna be happy, that's all
With someone I can last forever with
I wanna be able to hear they love me no matter who they may be with.
To take my head and pull me close to their yeart
And whisper in my ear that I'm one of the most beautifulest girls in the world.

Baby just say I love you and actually mean it for a change.

You are the Greatest Thing

I love you so much; you are the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. I can't forget about that night at the dance when we danced forever so close. You told me when I was liking someone else that if he didn't pick me, that's his loss; he would never meet any one who is a great as me... I love you and I'm sorry that my heart skips beats when I walk past you; I'm just so in love. I have never fallen in love with anyone as much as how I feel for you.

Dear You

Dear You,

I've had a crush on you for almoast a year now, and I know you know that. We both will be moving to a different state in a little over a month, and I'm really sad, but I want you to know you are a great guy and any girl will be lucky to have you as a boyfriend. All I need to know now (and wanted to ever since I met you) is if you like me, too, or do you think im a huge creep?

Love ya so much.

Dear Nicolas

Dear Nicolas,

You are the love of my dreams (at least for now).
The way you smile makes me grin. You laugh at my jokes, and I laugh at yours. The way your eyes shine makes me happy.

Your Secret Admirer

back to top


Hiroki-san, it was Christmas Eve of last year that we met, right? You probably don't know that I actually mustered up all my courage to see you the second time. You probably know this already: the pictures I promised you were an excuse for me to see you again.

I did send you the pictures afterwards, but I don't know if you actually received them or not. I dare not contact you again to ask if you got them. Your lack of response may mean that you want nothing with me. I don't want to become a nuisance to you.

Even now, I still think of you all the time. I remember your beautiful smile, your warm laugh, and your sincerity. I especially remember the time when you caught me gazing at you, and you smiled at me warmly.

I guess that second meeting was the last bond that we had. I don't expect for us to ever meet again, even though I always wish I could see you again. It doesn't matter what the circumstances are when we meet again. Or maybe, it's also fine that we don't meet. Just being able to see you from a distance is fine for me too. Just once is fine. I don't expect to recieve love from you at all.

Perfect Guy

I don't have the courage to tell you in person, but you don't know how much I love you. When I met you, my heart began to soar and your smile, just seemed...Perfect. Now, I Think of what will happen next as my love grows for you more and more each day. Through the years, I haven't thought of you as my one true love, but you showed me the meaning of it, and how special it is to be loved. You're more than special to me; you mean the world to me. Though my wishes have not yet come true, I still dream of what can be in the future.

Please ask me out

To My Exboyfriend

I don't care that you are in a "group" or whatever. I just want to be with you. You mean the world to me.

Your eyes glitter like the stars above.

Your eyes glitter like the stars above.
Your smile reminds me of the moon so big and bright
The way your teeth shine like the glittering ocean makes my heart skip a beat.
I will never love anyone like I do you.
I walk slowly in the halls just so I can see you.
When I see you smile I can hardly breathe.
You will never know how I feel because sometimes it's like im invisible.
But I will always and forever love you.

I know you know I like, but I can't take it anymore.
I LIKE YOU and that's all I'm gonna say. :D

I love you Mom!

You birthed me, you loved me, you cared for me and protected me. Now it's my turn to tell you how much I love you! You were gone before I turned 7... I love you, Mom; my life is lonely without you!

Love, Logan

Dear Sammy,

You are kind, beautiful, sweet, and amazing. You always cheer me up when I am blue and you have been the apple of my eye for so long. I don't think you ever realized how much I have loved you for the past 3 years, and I want to tell you now. If you don't feel the same about me, let's forget about this all. I don't want it to ruin our strong friendship. But if you love me back, let me know.

I kept your name a secret.
I love you.
I wake up every day just to hear and see you.

Would it be weird if I said I loved you?

Dear Citric Acid, Seaweed Brain, or whatever you prefer,

Would it be weird if I said I loved you? (Inside my head: OF COURSE! DUH, THAT'S THE WEIRDEST THING YOU'VE SAID IN YOUR LIFE!) We're not "typical," if you know what I mean. I understand you, and you understand me. We both want to be marine biologists, we blurt things out at the same time. You read my mind, I read yours. We're always talking to each other. We're best friends. We.. like each other, but it's not a subject that we try to go over a lot. It's not all we care about. We're not like those sixth graders from last year, who were already "girlfriend and boyfriend." That's not what I want. In fact, I don't think I'll be dating for a LOOOOOOOOOOOONG time. I see more in you than those fake, so called "romances." I don't believe in love at first sight, because when I first saw you, I thought I hated you. And I know you (almost) felt the same way about me, because you're not typical either.
Girls go on and on about their "crushes." It's so annoying. They don't treat boys like people. They treat them as "potenial boyfriends." You know that I'm nothing like that. And you know that I've said, over and over, how much I hate the stereotypical teenage girl.
I do love you. Even if it's not the kind of comittment like real romantic love, I do know that you're really important to me. Thanks for everything.

(Um, I would put my name here, but if this is going on the internet, I don't really want to embarrass you.)

It is 2:30 at night

It is 2:30 at night
I've lost track of how long I've cried!
It's been so long since I last saw you,
Since I have seen your smile. I remember it like it was yesterday
That I told you when I first started loving you

Yesterday I saw your picture and it made me cry.
I miss you
But love you more and more
With each passing day. Words could never describe you on how I feel.
How much I wish to be with you, everyday of my life.

It's been too long since I last told you
How much I do love you.
My life has no regrets
Except the one where I let you go
Where I had to leave you.
My last week with you
Our last kiss
It will stay on my memories
And I won't remember anything else.
I can't wait for the day to come where I can finally
Hold you in my arms again.
No matter how far this day is away, I know that it will come,
And hopefully it will last forever.
And when it comes, I will never let it end.

Hi Damian.

Hi Damian.

I've been wanting to say how much I truly loved and love you. I miss our days. I miss you. I can remember all the days that we shared... the things we've done and the words that were spoken by our mouths. I miss us. How I wish I could turn back everything and make you mine again. You made me feel that there's always love after a heartache. I miss how you cuddle me with your love. And now that everything's over and I can't even be the dreamgirl you wanted, I just wish my pictures of us together can turn back into reality again. I still love you. For FOREVER.

You'll always be my once love and always.

Dear You #2

Dear You,

On friday night, I finally got up the courage I've saved for a year and asked you if you liked me. You just started texting on your phone and acting stupid. Then you kept saying you didn't know if you liked me. The next day at my birthday party, you showed up, said you were bored, admitted you used to like me, and didn't tell me why you didn't like me anymore. Then you left without saying happy birthday, bye, or anything. You made me cry. Now I'm going out with a guy who really likes me, but I don't like him that much. I don't know what to do because I'm mad at you, but I still want to be with you at the exact same time. Also, I don't want to break my boyfriend's heart--but I don't want to go out with him, I want to go out with you! Also, we will both be moving, and I want to be with you while we have the time.

Dear B

Dear B,

Everyone's told me that you like me... But I don't see it. We sit next to each other in class, yet you barely talk to me. You even come over to my house, but to see my brother--but I'm usually hanging out with them. I guess the reason why I'm writing this is because I love you! But do you love me, too?

Yes or No

You know who you are.

Dear _______________,

You know who you are. We've been best friends for so long, and it's horrible to wait for you, to look at you every day and try to figure it out. But every day I look at you and realize--well, that I've fallen for you. I don't want this to ruin everything that we've had as just friends. I guess we could still be friends, except my heart would probably shatter into a million pieces and I would always mourn that you never felt the same. But no pressure.

Sigh. Why is it so easy for us to share everything: secrets, hopes, dreams, fears--but this? It's impossible, and still I can't tell you. It's driving me crazy, trying to dissect every action you do or every word you say to figure out if you like me. It hurts not to tell you one thing for fear that you would never feel the same.
But I still love you.
I love all your faults and perfections. You are probably the only person I've met that I can always trust with everything I tell you. I can tell you anything about me, because I know that even if I confessed something major, you would still like me the way I am.
Except for the fact that you.
You are the only person that I could ever love. You would never let me go or betray me, and you can always make me laugh, no matter how I feel. You are always so sweet, and your writing is beautiful, even if it's not about me. The one thing I'm sure of, as the world spins around me, is that I love you. I always have and always will love you. Forever and always.

Dear ______,

Dear ______,

We have been going out for only about a month now, and I just wanted to say that I really do heart you. I know that I made a mistake when I thought we should have broken up, and I'm sorry for that. I am so glad that I changed my mind and that I'm still with you, even though I won't be seeing you next year because of high school. I just want to let you know that I will never, ever forget you. You were my first kiss, and the first guy I truly cared about. I know you will never see this, but I still wanted to write it anyway. I love you so much, Banana Boy (insiders)! I'll miss you when I go off to high school.

Dear and lovely

Dear and lovely ...

Even though we have been rivals from kindergarten, your other side as a humorous and patient guy has really captivated me. I don't know why we have been fighting for ages, but still after endless hours of chatting over net and in person, I think you also like me. It's just that we hadn't known each other well all these years. Whatever your reply might be, I will continue to like and love you, and whatever you feel, please reply... I love you!

Yours lovingly,
You know who

I love
The way you purr
And your brown and white fur
I love
That you are soft
And always so happy
I love
The way you kiss me good night
Cuddle me when I'm not alright
I love
Your smile
You make everything worth while!

Dear You #3

Dear you #3,

This weekend was so much fun and even though we just sat around and did basically nothing, I enjoyed every minute of those 4 hours. I am not mad at you anymore for what you did. My anger overpowered my love for you. What makes me sad is that some people think they're in love but their not. I THINK I am in love with you. I finally got up the courage and told my boyfriend that going out with him was all a mistake and that we were over. I did this because in a week and 2 days you will be on your way to your new home in New York and I still believe that we still have a chance.

Dear M

Dear M,

I always thought that you would be the perfect person for me. You are so smart and modest and funny, and there's not many guys like you out there. I wanted to tell you how I felt, but I knew that you didn't love me back. Over the past two years, we have been complete strangers, acquaintences, best friends, rivals and back to strangers. You changed so much and made new friends, while I am stuck in the past and tied down by my old ways. Can you please rescue me?

With love, K

Why is love so hard

Why is love so hard? The only thing I try to do is love you and be the perfect girl for you. But when you call me a lie, I be so hurt. Why do you do these things to me? I'm just a girl that wants to be loved a life time--that's all I want. I know you lie and cheat, but I don't really care because I know I'm in love with you... or at least I think I am. Baby, just love me and only me, that's all.

I'm still trying to wonder if you wrote the "Dear N" letter in the April love letters. My name starts with N, you call me N, my eyes are blue, and my hair is long and brown. You don't seem like the kind of person to use "inspirational" and "spontaneous," though.

I just want to tell you that I am not interested in you like that. It's fun to talk to you by your locker and when you sit behind me in Science class, but we've been best friends since kindergarten and I don't like you like that. We can still be friends. Thank you for not telling anyone anymore that we are going out--there is no mistaking that you like me and I'm sorry, but I don't think we are gonna work out.

I've liked you ever since I met you in the

Dear "Clark Kent,"

I've liked you ever since I met you in the nurse's office at the beginning of the year. I know we've never really talked, but I really, really like you a lot.

I know for a fact from looking at your Myspace page and seeing how some of your pictures have as many as 30 comments from girls on them that a lot of other girls like you, but I don't see how any of them could like you as much as I do.

And as Taylor Swift might say--"All those other girls...well, they're beautiful, but would they write a song for you?" Just so you know, I've written about 200. ;]

Your "Lois Lane"
