Secret Things to Do to Your Crush on Valentine's Day

BE MY VALENTINE image by brelsbil from

When you have a crush on a guy and he doesn't know it yet, Valentine's Day can be the perfect time to spring a secret surprise on him to let him know he's on your mind. You'll have to be sneaky, however, to ensure that your identity stays a secret until you're ready to reveal it.

Send a Love Letter

Compose and send him a love letter. Choose the perfection stationery for Valentine's Day -- red or pink high-quality paper. Express your feelings to him in writing. Mention the qualities he possesses that particularly impress you. Tell him how handsome you think he is and let him know how, when and why he caught your eye. Write a first draft or create a list to collect your thoughts before you put them down on your stationery and seal the envelope. If there's any chance he will recognize your handwriting, disguise it or use a typewriter or printer.

Send a Gift Certificate

Give him a gift certificate for something you know he'll enjoy. If he's an avid reader, consider a gift card to a local or online bookstore. If you know where he likes to eat out, buy him a gift card so he can enjoy his favorite meal. If he's a paintball enthusiast, send him a free pass for a day's adventures. It's important to have a general idea of what he enjoys to purchase the suitable gift certificate for him. Enclose the gift certificate in a Valentine's Day card and drop it in the mail without a return address.

Send Him a Drink

If you happen to know his favorite watering hole, pop in for a drink yourself. Just before you make your exit, snag a waitress and order a drink for him. Ask the waitress to deliver it to him along with a secret message you've written on a cocktail napkin. Ask her not to describe you to him, but to simply say a mystery woman sent it to him. Then get the heck out of Dodge before the drink arrives. You'll arouse his curiosity and make him wonder who has her eye on him.

Send Him a Text

Block your number and send him a Valentine's Day text message. Tell him you've had your eye on him and arouse his curiosity. Let him know how irresistible you find him. Mention any activities you have in common. See where the conversation leads. Steer clear of the line that divides secret crush from stalker. It's okay to express admiration, but if you're able to tell him every move he's made for the last two weeks, he may get a bit creeped out.
