On Friday, when we got to choose our new seats in Language Arts, I was really happy that you wanted to sit by me. Does that mean you like me too? Because I like you, and I'm pretty sure everybody knows it. I wish you would give me a sign. I know you're not going to read this, but if somehow in the universe you could ever feel the same way for me that I feel about you, I wish you'd drop your pencil under your desk on Monday and ask me to get it for you. If that happens, I'll take it as a sign that you love me too.
I really like you but you don't like me. I wish I could tell you I like you but you would laugh. I know you can tell I like you by the way I look at you. Your eyes and your smile make me want to melt inside. I want you to know my feelings for you but every time I look or talk to you I blush really hard. You make me laugh and smile when you look at me and talk to me. I love you and I really hope you will love me too some day.
I bet you didn't know that I'm terrified of the dark, & every time I think of you, I smile.
I bet you don't know that I hate thunderstorms,
but love dancing in the rain. Or how much I laugh with my friends & how much I truly enjoy being happy. I bet you don't know how many tears I've cried just for you, or how much I doubt myself every day. I bet you don't know how ticklish I am or how I can't make decisions & how it drives me crazy when you look at me...
You may know who I am, but probably not. I am only in your 7th period English class and that's the only class =(. You have icy, dreamy, blue eyes and a unique personality. I doubt that you will ever like me but I still have my hopes. The 2 people that know I like you think I am crazy, but honestly I think any girl would go out with you. The moment I saw your smile last year, I knew you were my new crush. I wish that you would ask me out...
Dear Sugar Rush,
I see you and I get flustered, you are so cute: green eyes, black hair, and the greatest tone of voice I have heard so far. I don't care that you're not my age. I would like to get to know you and maybe we can go out but it's up to me to make the first move and say hi. I see you every morning and you make it a wonderful morning every day.
We've been friends since really the 3rd grade and when I had my birthday Saturday I had invited you and some other boys. What made me started to like you was when you actually called me on my 14th birthday and told me "Happy Birthday," and I blushed. Antoine, I've noticed how you would smile at me and say hey to me and I wish you would feel the same way about me too. Also, I hope I can have a chance to go out with you sometime in high school.
1st per. Math and 4th per. English may be the only classes I have with you but I just want to let you know that I like you a lot and it makes me feel sad that you might not like me too. Oh well, you'll probably never read this so bye for ever.
I loved the way you look at me and when you laugh! It is so awesome! If you like me can you give me a sign or tell me I know you will probably never read this but I just wish you would feel the same way I do.
You have been the best boyfriend and best friend I have ever had. I have opened up. We have so much to live for, I plan on having you as my knight in shinning armor. When I'm in your arms I feel like I'm safe. I melt when I'm around you I pry for you more then I pry for my self. That smile that smile something about it makes my world go good. I can't be away from you for more than a minute. I'm so glad God sent you to me, like sending me an angel from far above. I love you, Edward, so much. I can't even explain.
We have been going out for a little more than a month already and I just wanted to let you know I cherish everyday I have spent with you. Since the day you asked me out I have been so happy inside. I felt noticed and loved. I can tell by the way we hug and the way you touch me gently. I think you stop because I don't respond to it but it's just because I don't know what to do without looking like a big idiot. I promise I will give the kiss you the kiss of your dreams when you least expect it.
Dezzy I ♥ giggles
I know that I've already said things about you in the other letter, but I can't stop thinking about you it's like you're a star that someone cannot stop looking at.
I really like you but I don't know if you like me.
We went out and broke up, then you went back out with me but Lauren said it was only because you felt sorry for me. And then you broke up with me and now you sit on my table. Only if you could tell me an answer.
I loved the way you look at me and when you laugh! It is so awesome! If you like me can you give me a sign or tell me I know you will probably never read this but I just wish you would feel the same way I do.
You won't read this and I know you won't, but I love you. I never want to leave you but I have to by the end of this year. I love you, though you don't love me. You hate when someone doesn't like you in return, but imagine how I about the other girls since we dated. I miss you and I am sorry.
You help me live to the fullest. You keep me on the right track. You motivate me to reach for the stars. Thank you.
Jose, even though I broke up with you, I still love you. I hate that I love you. Sometimes I can't stop thinking about you. I kind of want a second chance with you. But at the same time I don't. There's just something about you.
You don't know who I am but we're both in band. You play the bass and I play the flute. You know that saying about love at first sight? That's how I felt when I saw you.
P. S. I'm in the 6th grade, you're in the 7th
John: I want to say to you so many things, but am terrified. Whatever happened to the non-awkward days? Is it meant to be this way forever?
I let you didn't know that when I think of you, I smile. You have the most beautiful eyes. I bet you didn't know, that when I don't see you I miss you terribly. I also bet you didn't know that you're the reason. I love you so much. This is coming off way too fast, and it scares me; but at the same time, it's thrilling. You complete my life. A wise person once said, "Everything happens for a reason".
I love you.
I know we have been the best of friends for five months but I know you like me and I like you too. You are so cute, with the best smile that makes me feel like I only see you and no one else around me matters. I just wanted to tell you how much I love you!
You should have seen the tears on my face
I wiped them but they always seem to come back
My heart is waiting for you
But I know that you won't come
Teardrops are my rain
I'll stop, but I'll never let you go
My stomach ached when you said goodbye
I guess I'll have to be without you forever
Why can't you just give me a sign if you like me? I mean, you've known me less than a month but you left your friends to spend break with me. There's so much I know about you but sometimes I just want to give up on you because I think I have no chance. But then you do or say something that gives me hope, and I just wish I knew.
I love the times when were together
I love it when we eat together
I love it when we play under the rain
I love it when we were still close friends
but now I feel like invisible to you... I'm sorry that I fell for you
Sometimes I wish I could hold your hand. I know it won't last very long though. I know you hide your emotions from me. I know you secretly don't have a girlfriend. I know everything about you. But, the one thing that we both know is that we don't have a relationship and that's what is missing. Please, I told you the truth, now you tell me.
I asked you if you liked me, you said no
I asked you if I was pretty, you said no
I asked you if I walked away, would you cry and you said no
I walked away, you grabbed my hand
You said I don't like you, I love you
I don't think you're pretty ,I think you're beautiful
And if you would walk away I wouldn't cry, I'll die
Dear whatever your name is,
You live on my building and l always see you in the morning and l just want to tell you that l really like you a lot since the first day l came to this country. I know you would probably not read this but l really like you. And l, for a clue, have hazel eyes and sometimes green.
Hello Again My Sugar Rush,
Today is the day I have decided to forget you, and yet I can't. I wish you could stop sitting near me on the bus or at least far enough so that I couldn't hear your voice, the voice that makes me feel so... I can't describe it. You look at me and I know it's just a look and probably means nothing. But when I hear you and see you my heart skips a beat. I just want you to tell me I'm ugly, overweight, and that I couldn't ever be with someone like you, but you won't. I hate having a crush because they're hard to get over and they don't even talk to you. You're the sugar rush that kills my loneliness.
From the one and lonely,
I just wanted you to know that I truly like you and that I want you to look around at school tomorrow and just guess who I am. Walk up to whoever you think "she" is and say: "You sent the letter?". Ok?
I really hate to say this but
I already fell in love with someone new.
He is nothing like you.
But I love him more than you.
I always be true
tell you all the truth.
But now you are mad at me,
because I broke our promise
and went with another boy.
I love him.
But I still have feelings for you,
please don't be mad at me.
Can we be friends again?
I love you so much.
But I am really sad that you left me in Year 5.
I miss you and will never leave you.
I'll never stop thinking about you.
I have had a crush on you for a very long time already. You always make me laugh if I'm sad, happy, or in between. You have the most amazing green eyes and the cutest smile I have ever seen! You are defiantly the most handsome boy I met.
I'll be waiting...
I love you so much.
But I am really sad that you left me in Year 4.
I wish one day at school you will come up to me and say that you love me.
I wish that you would give me a sign of love.
Love from your ex-girlfriend,
Before Halloween, when you asked me to the dance and I said no, I wish a I had said yes. At the dance when you sang "Love Bug" to me I could feel myself blushing under all the makeup I was wearing. I just want to say that I like you and I wish you would feel the same way about me!
(letter for my friends)
What is a friend? I keep on asking this question to myself. I just can't give a definition that will satisfy to the answer that I look for. When you talk and share your thoughts to a person twice or more than twice, is s/he already your friend? Why do people classify their friends as close friends and true friends? When I entered college, I can barely say that I've garnered a lot of friends... It just happened that at the middle of this new portion of my life question marks were flying on my mind. Blaming myself that I should have known what a friend is because I consider myself as one. Friendship is seen through the laughter and tears that you share to each other, it's when you are comfortable to be with somebody without masking your personality. It is the same as being willing to accept a person who really s/he is.
Maybe this question bothers me not because I have no idea about it, but because of the fear that I feel. Because if I will base my thoughts about this kind of relationship, it will be compared to a simple math problem that I made very complicated. I garnered false friends, pretending to be happy with me, behind those laughter and tears that we have been sharing, there is a hole of unreality; exchanging smiles I saw is the stabbed in my face that I feel.
I am longing to be loved. I am longing to be accepted. Just to be accepted. Am I asking for too much? If I will describe myself, I can say firmly that I have a flexible personality. I accept the attitude of every human being that surrounds me because I want them to accept me too. I am looking forward that it is no need for me to change everything about me just to be fitted with them. But the saddest part is that I'd been deceiving myself every time I am with them. I can't express that I'm crushing to the guy they're bullying, that I like the dresses they just laughing at, that I am singing the song they can't understand. And the hardest part is when I smile... I laugh without them noticing the tears falling from my eyes, it's when I realized that the question I am searching for an answer is not "what is a friend?" but "who are my friends?"
I got only one... My pen.
I think that you're really sweet and so cute, you know how I said I loved that Dereck guy? Well I don't. I really like you and I hope you feel the same way.
In fifth grade I liked you but I kept quiet. In sixth grade my friend asked you out for me. I feel so weird around you now. It really hurt when you didn't say a thing.
You told me you loved me.
You said you would never hurt me... You promised.
I believed you.
I loved you back and right when I thought we were
meant to be you broke my heart and it hurt.
I don't know if I can ever trust you and the sad thing is I just can't get over you.
I don't want to lose you so I'm asking can we a least be friends? But I have to say this one last thing... I still love you.
Oh, my God, it's you! I just wanted to let you know that even though you don't have a crush on me, that feeling isn't mutual. ;)
You'll probably never read this but I love you. See you on Monday. Love Lexy
"Shall I compare thee to a summers day?"
Your smile so big and pure. I'm lovesick with you but there is no cure. When I see you everyday, Cupid sets a fire in my heart. And finally when you talk to me it feels like someone has pierced me with a dart.
You really would never guess or tell but I secretly like you! And yes those rumors are true. I know you like Rachel but give me a chance. You don't really know me.
Dear Prince C. K.
I know that you will never see me the way I see you, but I can still dream can't I? I've known you for several months, and I met you through drama. A show actually. And you and Matt were the leads. And I was the lead in the show "Annie", and you might have seen me in it. But anyway I have to leave you behind. I'm sorry.
I don't really know how to say this but I really like you and yes you're probably laughing your head of but it's true. I don't want to ruin our friendship either and just would like to know: do you like me?
Well, I feel better now you know but don't want you to be weird around me.
I Know you may never in your life read this but I'm deeply madly in love with you. It broke my heart entirely when we broke up. No matter what I will always be there for you. Even when we go away for boarding school. The last day I'll ever see you is when I'll tell you all of this.
The 4 months we had together were truly amazing! I know we had something special and I don't know why you gave that up for a girl you barely know. Just because you're having doubts doesn't mean that we had to break up. I know that you still love me and that you're still in love with me. Everyone who I have ask say you still like me and I told them all the reasons we broke up before that. You know you didn't want our relationship to end so why end it? You say I'm beautiful, amazing, and that you're probably going to regret it. Remember? The spaces between our fingers are made for each other. I know you have another girlfriend but I also know that you know you won't ever find anyone better. You had the girl with the personality, looks, heart, touch, and face you love and can never forget. And guess what, she's right here and never wants to leave you.
So come back Dieter, come back. You know you want to.
I have loved you willingly for so long. And I really hope that you feel the same.
Love you forever and ever
Dear J. B.,
I really don't understand why you just let me go and made me cry... I really loved you and I'm hoping we can at least be friends. I see you with all these girls and stuff and deep down in my heart, it's killing me to see you with another girl. Every time you do that, I just die a little inside. I really don't know why you're doing this to me, but I wish we can stop fighting and make up. It's been five months and we're still not talking. Every night I cry and hope that everything is going to be okay but I guess it won't, sigh. I really love you I just wish that stuff that happened between would just end because they were nothing but childishness, and I'm very sorry for that. So, that's all I have to say...
I Love You For Ever And Ever
Your eyes are like the sea. I melt when I see you. Your smile makes me blush. We both play percussion. You flirt and poke me and band. But you flirt with other girls. How do I know if you like me? When will I find out? I want to spend my life with you. Why won't you go out with me? Is it because I'm a year younger than you? Just give me a chance. That's all I ask.
P. S. You know who I am...
I'm your best friend in the world but I'm having some feelings and I'm starting to like you a lot. But I don't know how to tell you.
- Love, Deibi
I really like you will you go out with me please? I have liked you since I met you.
I owe so much to you. You inspire me to learn new things every day, try my hardest, and be the best I can be. Thank you. You are my hero! Love you!
You probably won't ever get to see this letter or be able to hear it spoken from my lips but I love you. I love everything about you, from the way you smile at me when I'm laughing so hard it looks like I'm going cry, to the way you ask me if I'm ok when a boy brakes my heart. I'm sorry for going out with other boys who asked, but not you. I'm sorry that you'll probably never know exactly how I feel... How your smile makes me melt and how every word you speak I replay in my mind over and over again. All the memories in the world couldn't do you justice. You are my love and if only I could tell you before I move away...
I know we have been going out for only a little while but I have to tell you how I feel. Every time I'm around you I get butterflies in my stomach and my heart beats faster and faster. When you give me hugs I feel so protected in your arms and I feel like nothing can go wrong. You were one of my closest friends then you asked me out and I was so happy. I don't say this unless I truly mean it: Wilmer, I love you!
Hopefully one day I can say it to your face and maybe you will feel the same way. But for now I'm just happy that you are my boyfriend!
Love always and forever,
My love has grown more and more. Lately, all I want is the tingling feeling of your closeness. Am I greedy? I cry and wake up from nightmares at night. In my dreams I never see your face clearly. Dearest beloved I love you. I hate that my words get lost when our eyes connect. Sorry, that I am too weak to face the truth, we are not meant to be. We are from different worlds. I face nothing but morals. While you see, death and suffering. I'm sorry you can not love me back.
You probably know that I like you, but I don't care. Everyone that knows I like you thinks I am crazy. I know you like someone else, and I also know you don't like me either but I had to confess to someone.
Dear Austin, I love you. Ever since I saw you in preschool I knew you were the one I liked. Austin, you are my world. We have been in the same class ever since pre-K. I wish I could tell you how I feel. I wish I could express my feelings and tell you how I feel about you.
I'm sorry that I lied to you.
I know I messed up and you can't take
that but I want to fix this:
I love you and I miss being your girl. Just
give me a chance to fix things.
From Haley xoxo
I know we always fight and insult each other. That's because I really like you and I really want to be more than friends. I hope you don't think that this is cheesy or stupid, but I think you're really cute and funny. I have a big a crush on you.
I love you like the star shines in the moonlight, the light shines in the sun if only you'd love me back I know life would be completed. From the first day I saw your sparkling face I new it was a crush. Then true love even though you're younger than me and in a higher grade. So what do those numbers matter? I do know I love you, Deer.
We have been dating for two months and I just wanted to say with all my heart that I love you. I tell you this everyday and I always mean it. I will always mean it. Everyone says were not going to last, but I know we will. We trust each other and understand each other. Once again, I love you. So much.
I wanna say I love, I wanna say I care but times when I do you just stare. I always do things that I know I shouldn't do. But I just really want to say that care a lot for you.
I bet you never noticed, but I love so much more than you think I do. I love you more every day. I'd do anything for you. Whenever you walk by, I smile. Because you make my sun shine a while. So stay and let it shine some more and be the one, my shining sun.
Hey studly. Seriously, I sound like a loser, but you are so amazing. I know you love Lydia, and I'm happy for you, but I can't help but seriously crush on you. I can imagine what we'd be, and it'd be awesome. God bless you, and we'll all miss you when you move to Germany.
I loved you for the whole of year 5 and 6 when I moved to your school. The first time I properly noticed you I felt my heart hammer. Your heavenly blue eyes and oh-so-wonderful smile makes me melt every time I see you. I love your hugs, when you talk to me, when you make me laugh, when you show clues that you love me. I just wish that now we're apart we'll get to see each other again because every second I don't see you I always dream of you and wish you were here. Dylan, you might not know but when you had a girlfriend I cried all night, when you were being lovely I felt I was in heaven.
I wish one day you'd love me too and tell me.
Everyday when I wake up you're the first person I think about. You make my day begin.
Your hug makes me feel safe.
My hand in yours makes everything right.
Your smile is like nothing I've ever heard before.
Your laugh is my favorite song.
Embrace the love
P. S. I love you, Cutie
I like you but I feel my BFF likes you even though you say you don't like her. That kind of bothers me because whomever I like, she likes. She also said that she does not like you but I really am in love with you. I hope you feel that way too. I love you forever.
I love you. I have loved you since Year 5 and now we are both in different secondary schools and hardly ever see each other. But still...
I love your hugs. You hugged me 13 times in Year 6 - and 13 is my lucky number (yes, it is) so it meant a lot to me. Your deep, gorgeous, most beautiful blue eyes ever just melted my heart. And your cute voice, lovely laugh and smile won me over. Every time we had a special moment, I treasured it. Every time you got a new girlfriend, I cried all night. But now you don't.
I just really wish one day you'd realise how much I love you, even though you already knew first and maybe loved me too. I thought I was over you. But now, I guess I still am not. I love you, more than anything in the world.
I know we will never meet again, but I want to tell you how much I loved you. You were my only thought and sight. I couldn't get over you. My heart ached because of the thought that I should never meet you again.
I have something really important to tell you. I can't say this to your face because it might come out all wrong but what I want to tell you is that I really really like you. Not as a friend, but more. I liked you the first time I saw you, I didn't have the guts to tell you though. I love your eyes, smile, and everything else about you. I hope you feel the same way about me.
P. S. If you don't feel the same way about me I hope we can still be friends without it being so awkward.
Could you give me your phone number so I can call you? I really like you and I want to go out with you.
Our time together has taught me 14 special things. They are the 14 things I hate about you.
1. You always smell like mushrooms
2. Your mom was mean to me once on a field trip
3. You have a puppy and all I have is my brother's ugly tortoise
4. Sometimes you wear those ugly orange bell bottoms two days in a row
5. Your eyes are hazel so they don't match mine
6. Your backpack doesn't have your initials on it
7. Your zodiac sign is Libra
8. Your action figure collection is 10 times better than mine
9. Your dad came to the concert the time my dad forgot
10. You went on vacation and saw a snail
11. I like socks but yours never match
12. One time your juice box squirted on me during snack time
13. You snore during nap time
14. Your shoelaces are always untied
Anywho I just wanted you to know that
I really really really really really really like you. Almost as much, maybe, just maybe, even more than Slipknot but probably not, sorry but they're my life. Anyway even though I let my friends make fun of you and I am mean to you behind your back, you're kind of cool even if you're a ditz. Whatever, I like hugging you bye or whatever.
I love you. I know that's kind of straight forward but it's true. I loved you the first time I ran into you, knocking you over, spilling our stuff everywhere. I just wish I could tell you...
Clare (whom you call Boo)
