sometimes you just need to sit down take a deep breath and let your emotions talk. no sometimes it isn't that simple but this always seems to be the best way in the end xx

It's your boyfriend, just do it. The key to a good, longlasting relationship is always telling the truth and trust.

With heartfelt sincere words. No really. Believe it or not, like woman most men also would like to be loved for who they are or told if they don't make you feel the way you want to feel. It isn't always about gifts and treats or the silent treatment and punishments. Some times it really is just about being open and honest and communicating that honesty in a healthy civil manner. Speaking up goes a loooooooong way.

You could tell your boyfriend how you feel about him by sitting together and talking to each other, knowing that you should share everything and not keep secrets, maybe over a dinner or anytime you're together.

Write down all the ways he makes you feel, sometimes one of the hardest things is vocalizing how you feel about your partner. Think of specific things they've done along with the emotion tied to them.

Communication and honesty are the most important aspects of any relationships. As hard as it may be, it's always so important to be honest.

Well, Just tell him the truth, and yeah Don't think about the outcomes, as it is the truth that remains at the end of the day :)

It depends on if it's good or bad. But it's generally the same principle- be kind, yet honest. Honesty is the best policy, but you should be kind about it as well :)

All you can do is be honest and open with him when talking. Especially about sensitive feelings. Trust yourself and your feelings and go from there. You are stronger than you think!

You can tell your feeling through some good time spending together. Find the right time and be calm on whatever feedback you going to get from him

Make sure your words dont hurt him. Make him happy of yourself and gradually start sharing your feelings

Talk to him sincerely and in a nice way that he will not become offended by the way you talk to him.

Just be incredibly honest. Honesty is the best policy in all cases with relationships.

In relationships it is so important to be honest! If you're feeling a certain way, it's good to be able to communicate that to him. It's also important that you take care of yourself and make sure that this is going to be a healthy decision for you. Make sure you are ready to say whatever it is, and when you are, say it. If you're not comfortable using words, there are other ways to tell him, like through a letter or note, or even just giving him hints through like songs that remind you of him.

Just talk , You know you love someone if you feel comfortable with them at all the times , Communication is the key! Also try to ensure that he's calm and in a good mood that will help too :)

It depends on what you feel. It it will hurt him in any manner tell him in a way that he will understand

Communication is key in any relationship and directly stating your emotions is one of the easiest forms of solutions.

Do something romantic, make or bake something for him. Be honest and tell him how you feel and why he makes you happy.

From my personal experience, I would want everything; the good and the bad. And, when given the bad, I would want it in a gentle way. That makes me want to work on it even more. If, for some reason, I can't get to the level I'm being asked for, I will try my best to get their regardless. Whatever level I can get to is my way to compensate. So, maybe in your situation, giving both the good and the bad would be beneficial!

In relationships honesty is very valuable, you should always be truthful and open about your emotions and feelings with your partner

You be honest, and you could call him, text him, email him, tag him in cute relationship things to get your point across, you could actually see him and tell him or if you're shy you could write a letter and just give him that for him to later read.

I think you should try and be as direct as possible because sugarcoating won't do any good to anyone. Be confident, make him feel relaxed and say it all. Just try not to be rude!

First of all, the best way to talk serious matters with anyone is personally. The second most important thing is to be sincere and try to express your feelings in a clear manner so that there are no misunderstandings...

Be as honest as possible and speak from the heart. If you are nervous, maybe it would help you to prepare what you want to say to him and practice in front of the mirror before talking to him.

Be truthful and tell him everything no need to hide your feelings. You chose him for a reason. So it is okay to tell him everything.

You can try to meet him up on the weekend and talk to him over a coffee. Be honest with your feelings and don't be afraid to share them. You can also try to show your feelings more by doing some romantic gestures. I hope that can helps. :)

Do something for him that he likes, do something with him and after that great time tell him everything that's on your mind. If it's hard for you to talk face-to-face write that down and after a great time give it to him with a big smile. Or just find songs that describe your feelings and make a playlist and let him listen to that first saying: This is how I feel about you.

Write it all down before you say it, sometimes under pressure you can forget everything you want/need to say. It also can help you think of more things to say and how you want to say it.

Honesty is the best policy. Having an honest and open relationship helps build a strong foundation. If it is fear preventing you from being honest, keep in mind that withholding how you truly feel can hurt your relationship in the long run.

Be honest. If you love him, tell him. "I love you." If you don't love him, tell him. Honesty is the key to relationships, so do not lie to your partner! They'll understand and if they don't, they don't deserve you.
