Love letter secret admirer
January 20, 2019 Anniversary Wishes For Parents 4 comments

A secret admirer is an individual who feels adoration, fondness or love for another person without disclosing his or her identity to that person, and who may send gifts or love letters to his or her.

Someone's caught your attention, but you're too afraid to approach him or her. A handwritten secret admirer letter could be the jumping point to express how you really feel, especially in this day and age of digital overload. The key is to keep it simple and genuine.

What to Include in Your Letter

The best notes to flatter your secret crush require something thoughtful, honest and unique. Stick to a brief written expression of how you feel versus an essay, and leave out things like how you can't stop thinking about them, or trite poetry such as, "Roses are red..." Your goal isn't to scare them or suggest you're completely infatuated, but to declare your interest. To do so, spend time reflecting on what it is you appreciate about this person and then compile your letter with the following ideas.

Greeting

To make sure it gets in the right hands, don't forget to write the name of the person you're crushing over. Identifying them by physical appearance can come across as creepy (e.g. Dear beautiful girl with silky red hair). It can also be confusing and potentially fall into the wrong person's hands. Instead, start your letter with, "Hi/Dear/To (Name of your crush)."

Intro

Right away, tell them why you're taking the time to compile this letter. A simple, "I like you," would suffice, or share what made you notice them (e.g. "I notice that we have ____________ in common," or, "When I first saw you, I was impressed with _____________.")

Body

Here's where you tell your crush what makes them so special. Is it a common interest, their cute smile, or your admiration for her skills? Explain what it is that makes the person unique without going overboard about how wonderful they are or how much you can't stop thinking about them. In a few sentences, you can tell him, "I thought your presentation was really creative," or "I like your style." Write something personal, but put yourself in your admirer's shoes and create something that would impress, rather than scare them off.

Closing

Help make the person you are admiring feel great with a closing that compliments them, but doesn't make them feel as if they have a stalker. For example, you could say, "I just wanted to let you know someone thinks you're pretty fantastic." Reading that, your admirer can't help but feel special.

Signing Off

The best way to end a letter of this nature is by simply signing something vague simple like, "Your Secret Admirer." Make sure you know how to spell secret admirer before you close! You don't want a spelling mistake to cause problems. If you're wanting to be a little flirtatious you could try something like, "Someone who thinks you're beautiful/handsome."

Delivering Your Note

Delivering your note is a tricky proposition since you don't want to be discovered, but you want to make sure it gets into the right hands. Make sure the recipient's name is on it clearly, so that your efforts land into the right hands. Next, get creative with your delivery. Go beyond just leaving it out somewhere to be discovered. After all, you've made the effort to write the secret note, why not make an impression with delivering it too?

  • Order flowers and have them delivered to her at work or her house. Leave your note with the flowers.
  • Leave the note in his backpack, or slip it into his locker.
  • Slip the note into a pocket jacket while her coat is hung up.
  • Grab coffee, and leave the note with the cup waiting for her on her desk in the morning.
  • Buy a small present such as a box of chocolate, a teddy bear or even some perfume. Put the present in the bag along with the note.
  • Buy special stationery and a nice pen. Write the note on the first sheet of stationary, and leave the whole thing (paper, pen and secret admirer note) on her desk or somewhere else where he'll find it.
  • If you know his address, you can send it in the mail. Leave off the return address to keep your anonymity.

Secret Admirer Note Example

If the above tips don't inspire you to figure out what to write in a crush's note, read this sample letter to help guide you. Note how the letter stays lighthearted and complimentary and never delves into the realm of potentially creepy.

What to Do Next

Once your note is delivered, try to gauge the recipient's reaction. If they seem pleased to have a secret admirer, you can write more notes, or consider upping your game with a few small presents. If on the other hand, they seem a bit scared off, it's best to lay low for a little while rather than doggedly pursuing your affections in secret. Remember, the goal is to make your admired feel special.

Kendall Jenner has two not-so-secret admirers! I just spent the past 15 minutes comparing Kendall's love letter to Harrys handwriting and IT.

Secret admirer + love letters = stalker?

love letter secret admirer

Traditionally, a love letter is quietly placed in the recipient's locker, or even handed to them in person. But due to teens being unsure when it comes to love, things can start getting... weird. Such as by giving the letter to the wrong person, forgetting to sign the letter, signing the letter with the wrong name, or maybe deciding that lockers are outmoded, and shooting the letter at the recipient instead. Or it could be a fake letter and a cruel joke, a la Twelfth Night.

And that's just the insanity on the sender's side. The recipient might mistake the letter for a death threat, miss finding it altogether, or even just assume the letter couldn't have possibly been addressed to them, and give it back.

  • One of the Digimon Adventure Drama Cd's revolves around the Digidestined discovering Izzy typing up a love letter on his laptop. They try to force him to tell them who it is, and when he doesn't, he tries to escape, leading them to tie him up and gag him.

His perfectly sensible (from the perspective of a former Child Soldier who grew up in an area where IEDs are a common problem) response is to blow up the school's entry hall because his shoebox has been opened, and interpret the signed fragments of letter he retrieves from the ruins as a death threat. To make matters worse (or more humorous), the Student Council President agrees with Sousuke that his actions were the most correct ones (Kaname's reaction look at this is hilarious), and the poor girl that wrote the letter becomes disturbed at the fact that the entire time she was waiting for Sousuke to appear at the meeting place she set he was camouflaged in a nearby bush aiming at her with a sniper rifle.

  • In Lucky Star, Kagami finds a love letter in her locker, and worries about it. Seeing that, Konata can't bring herself to admit it was an April Fools' Day joke.
    • In a later manga episode, Kou finds a love letter in her desk, again addressed to Kagami. It passes through Hiyori's hands to Tsukasa, who delivers it to Kagami (not without some teasing from their older sisters).

    • As if Kagami didn't have enough fake love letter issues in the manga, the anime has her receiving a note while on their Class Trip, leaving her distracted the rest of the day. It is actually from a boy this time, and he does actually want to talk to her... about begging the Yatsuhashi doll she bought off of her.
  • In the Anime of the Game for Mega Man Star Force, Cancer Bubble tries to infuriate Luna by "accidentally" delivering spurious love letters from Mega Man to Harp Note. He does this because he's mistaken her for a Barrier Maiden whose powers are awakened by wrath, but he only succeeds in getting her angry at him.
  • Kana gets one from Fujioka in the first episode of Minami-ke, but then makes a horrible mistake: she asks her sisters for advice. Chiaki, apparently sincerely, manages to interpret the letter as a challenge. Kana is convinced, and meets with Fujioka in order to kick him. (This is just the beginning of Fujioka's trials; at one point, Chiaki even finds an aggressive way to interpret his out-and-out saying "I like you" to Kana.)
  • Nyan Koi! plays with this one interestingly. First Junpei receives a letter, which he thinks might be a love letter, from Nagi, but it turns out to be a challenge letter.
    • Then he receives a second (handed to him) by Kotone, which he thinks is about another challenge, but is surprised to find is an actual love letter, only to get it ripped out of his hands only moments after he's read it by who he thinks is Kotone, but is actually her twin sister Akari who challenges him to meet her at a shrine by his house. He finds that Kotone actually does like him (to the point of being a complete stalker) and Akari is trying to keep from being requited. The challenge was more about his curse though.
  • Shows up almost as often as cooking duels in Ranma ½
    • Very early in the series, Kuno sends what appears to be a challenge letters to Ranma's girl form. It turned out to be a love letter, much to Ranma's distress. Kuno goes on to do this several times over the course of seven seasons.
    • Ryoga pulls this at least twice in both the anime and the manga. One story has Ryoga send Akane a love letter written in green ink (it's complicated). The letter gets wet and the ink bleeds so Akane never actually gets to read it. In another, Ryoga's dog Shirokiro actually manages to deliver a love letter to Akane and return with her reply, which says she's already in love with somebody else. Ryoga is devastated until Ranma points out that "somebody else" could just as well be him, since both letters were anonymous- the adaption of this story is actually Ryoga's final appearance in the anime, up until the OAV series.
    • In Ukyo's first story after being introduced to the cast, she tries to set up a blind date between Ryoga and Akane using a love letter written on an Okonomiyaki, which Akane naturally mistakes for a challenge from Ukyo. Of course, this isn't helped by the fact that Happosai took a bite out of it (manga)/Ranma stepped on it while chasing Happosai (anime) before Akane could read it, thus blotting out some key kanji.
  • In the first episode of School Rumble, Tenma Tsukamoto spends all night writing a long love letter to Oji Karasuma. He spends all day and night reading it, and finally ignores it when he realizes the letter wasn't signed. Later in that same episode, Kenji Harima writes a (considerably shorter) love poem to Tenma, and she adores it. Naturally, someone else she just happens to meet in the park after school (who is big enough to pound Harima into paste without a second thought) finds out about the poem and takes the credit for writing it. Later Harima beats the guy to a pulp.
    • A few episodes later, Tenma is watching a period drama, and gets the wonderful idea to shoot a love letter at Karasuma with a bow and arrow. She follows him across town as he nonchalantly dodges every attack, unintentionally makes Harima parody The Matrix, and follows Karasuma into a bank just in time to FOIL A BANK ROBBERY.
  • Shimoneta: In episode 4, Tanukichi turns to Ayame for advice after he starts receiving love letters from a potential stalker. So she posts a response on his front door to lure the stalker out of hiding. The note said he reciprocated and that he'd left the door unlocked to invite them in. Except it backfires when the stalker turns out to be Anna, who tries to rape him under the assumption that the note meant he wanted to have sex with her.
  • In Strawberry Marshmallow, Nobue receives a love letter asking to meet her in front of the Hamamatsu Station. The girls try to change her dress and rehearse the meeting... it doesn't go well. It was Miu all along (explaining the feminine handwriting), having gotten the idea from a manga she was reading. Miu crafts another letter from "Junya" saying that he's flying to India... but makes the mistake of signing her own name to the envelope.
    • Ana gets her love letter too, after the first day of school. With the plus of being written in Gratuitous English because the writer didn't know she could read Japanese (when in fact the opposite was true).
  • In Toradora!, Taiga attempts to leave a love letter for Yuusaku in his bag—but accidentally puts it in Ryuuji's instead. When he finds it later and attempts to look inside, he discovers it's a sealed, empty envelope. She's so klutzy she forgot to put the letter in.
  • Early in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, Dr. Crowler leaves a fake love letter from Alexis in Jaden's locker as part of a plan to lure him into a trap. Unfortunately, Jaden is currently sharing a locker with Syrus who ends up getting the letter and sending Crowler's plan completely Off the Rails.
  • Part of the backstory in Marmalade Boy. A couple years before the series began, Miki had a crush on her best guy friend and fellow tennis club member, Ginta. Her best girl friend, Meiko, convinced her to confess to him, so she wrote a love letter and stuck it in a magazine in his book bag. What she didn't know was that the magazine actually belonged to someone else, who took it back and read the love letter out loud to a very embarrassed Ginta and a bunch of other boys. Ginta loudly denied that he had any feelings for Miki. What he didn't know was that Miki and Meiko had come back to the classroom to get something they forgot, and Miki heard every word, breaking her heart. Ginta comes to school the next day with his hair cut drastically shorter as an apology, since cutting the hair short is a way that women mourn a lost love. It's taken until the time of the actual series beginning for Miki and Ginta to recover their friendship, and Miki starting to develop feelings for Yuu is what causes Ginta to 'fess up and tell her that no, he's actually been in love with her all along. He only denied it because she was popular with the other boys and he was embarrassed.

This leads to Beatrix believing the letter is from Steiner and vice versa; the two do wind up becoming a couple, and no one's the wiser. Even if Eiko, Blank, Markus and Baku do witness their first tentative meeting. The music that plays during that scene is even entitled, "Foolproof Love Letter Scheme." A nice alternate title for the trope...
  • Final Fantasy Type-0's secret ending features Sice trying to work up the courage to give one of these to Kurasame. She apparently believes that a good way to deliver it is to wait around the corner after she sees him walking towards her and wait until the footsteps sound close, then turn around blindly and hold it out with a loud and nervous "Here!" without checking to see if the one standing there is Kurasame and not her fellow classmate Seven.
  • Shows up, of all places, in La-Mulana. The dating-sim homage game Lemeza can play on his MSX features one of these that drives the plot. It's anonymous, and asks the nameless protagonist to come to the "legendary tree." It's all perfectly cliche from there on out. Until it turns into a Snatcher homage.
  • In Capcom's self-parodying game Pocket Fighter, one of Chun-Li's combo enders is her turning into a schoolgirl and shyly handing her opponent a love letter. If she hits, the target reads the letter and then rockets across the screen with hearts in their eyes. If she misses, she gets stunned as she cries rivers of tears.
  • There's a quest at the beginning of Fable II called "The Love Letter". In it a poor man asks the Hero to deliver a love letter with a proposal to his girlfriend without her bitter mother finding out. The good option has the Hero deliver the letter to the girlfriend without a hitch. In the evil option however, the hero gives the letter to the mother who gets angry. When confronted by her the man lies and tells her the letter is for her to get out of trouble. She then quickly becomes enraptured with him and accepts his wedding proposal, much to the man's horror.
    • Fable I also has a quest involving delivery of a love letter. The evil option in that one is to tell the recipient that you wrote it yourself.
  • On the path to Undertale's Golden Ending, Undyne asks you to deliver a love letter to Dr. Alphys, since whenever she tries delivering it herself she backs out because she thinks the letter needs to be rewritten. Unfortunately, she forgot to sign it, and Alphys assumes the letter was from you — so she takes you on a date to the garbage dump, despite obviously only having eyes for Undyne. Undyne, having decided her love letter needs to be rewritten, is looking for you in an attempt to get it back. Hilarity Ensues as you try to get the two of them together.
  • White Day: A Labyrinth Named School has its ghost story One-Sided Love. A student develops a crush on a teacher and wrote a love letter, putting it into the attendance book, so he would find it during the next class. Instead, a substitute teacher finds the letter, reads it out loud to the class, mocks the love-struck student over this, and lets the classmates laugh at her. Then her beloved teacher comes into the room, reads the letter himself, and looks at her in disgust.

But when he confronts her she clearly didn't know anything about it, and it's revealed that her friends left it on her behalf. Riki is a little relieved...and then she explains that she does like him, and that her friends apparently did it to force her to say something.

Secret Admirer Love Letter

love letter secret admirer

Kendall Jenner has two not-so-secret admirers!

After the 23-year-old model took to her Instagram Story on Monday to share a love letter that she received from an unknown source -- thanks to her marking out the signature -- she reversed course on Tuesday and revealed the letter writers once and for all. It turns out the sweet note was penned by renowned photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, who are oftentimes known professionally as Mert & Marcus.

"Nice try," Jenner wrote over a pic a the letter that showed the "M + M" signature. "My secret admirer's actually @mertalas & @macpiggott."

Even though it wasn't from a love interest, the letter's sentiment is still incredibly sweet.

"Dear Kendall, We may be miles apart but my love for you grows stronger & stronger by the minute," the letter reads. "My innermost feeling is of pure love for you. I will love you until death separates us. Right now this separation is killing me, but in my heart I know that nothing would come close to separating us. We are united into one forever, body & soul and I want you to know that I love you from the deepest part of my heart."

Prior to the reveal that Alas and Piggot were behind the note, fans couldn't stop speculating as to who penned the sweet message! A lot of social media users pointed to Harry Styles as the likely source, comparing the handwriting to a note he posted to Instagram last year. The pair briefly dated in 2013 and have sparked reconciliation rumors twice, most recently in 2016.

 While some fans were all in on the Styles theory, others actually pointed out inconsistencies in the writing.

Other possible suspects included rumored exes Cara Delevingne and Tyler, the Creator. As of late, Jenner has been linked to Ben Simmons. The two did spark split rumors after she was spotted kissing Anwar Hadid, the brother of Gigi and Bella Hadid, in June. Jenner and Hadid also cuddled up at a carnival in September.

Why you Should not be a Secret Admirer

love letter secret admirer

Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to tell your crush how you feel about them. But what if you’re too shy to say it in person or to their face? Here are some tips and ideas on how to write the perfect Secret Admirer Note for the person you love – even if they don’t know it yet!

What To Do

First thing’s first. If you’re going to write a note to your crush, you need to make sure you’re doing the right thing. In some cases, it may be best to just let your crush know you like them and skip the whole “secrecy” part of it. But if you really feel like writing a note is the way to go, just remember not to overdo it or you’ll look like a stalker. Write the note, keep it simple, drop it off secretly and let fate do its work.

Say What You Feel

The first key to a great Secret Admirer Note is to clearly state how you feel about the person. Don’t go on and on about it or be confusing or vague. That will make you seem creepy. Just say you like them, maybe give one or two reasons why, and leave it at that. You want the note to be as short, simple and clear as possible – remember, this isn’t a love letter to someone you’ve been dating for years. It’s a note to your crush to let them know you’re interested and try to find out if they like you back or not. Leave the mushy stuff for your one-year anniversary!

DO:“I like you.”

DON’T:“You are the love of my life. I think about you all the time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You mean everything to me.”

Use Their Name

Ever heard stories of a Secret Admirer Note gone wrong? The last thing you want is for the wrong person to get their hands on it and accidentally think the note is for them! Make sure that your note gets to the right person by clearly stating his or her name somewhere in it! You can even put it in an envelope and print their name right on the front (but still make sure you put their name on the note inside, in case the note and envelope get separated). Use a pen and not a pencil – you don’t want to risk someone erasing the name and replacing it with someone else’s. And if there’s more than one “Kate” in your class, put their last initial or full last name somewhere on it, too!

DO:“To Kate S:
I like you.”

DON’T:“To My Secret Admirer:
You are the love of my life. I think about you all the time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You mean everything to me.”

Make Them Feel Special

Think of your Secret Admirer Note as something that will compliment your crush and make him or her feel happy. But don’t say stuff that you don’t mean and make sure you only write down your true feelings – you don’t want them to think you’re head over heels in love when really you just want to get to know them a bit better and see where things go.

DO:“To Kate S:
I like you.
You seem really cool and smart.”

DON’T:“To My Secret Admirer:
You are the love of my life. I think about you all the time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You mean everything to me.
You’re just the best person I have ever known in my whole entire life, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you and only you. I LOVE YOU!!!”

Be Confident

The most attractive thing you can be is confident with yourself. It’s definitely scary to tell someone you like them, but if you’re sure of yourself and know that you mean well then you’ll have nothing to worry about. The worst thing you can write in a Secret Admirer Note is anything that makes you seem scared or weak. You know how you feel and you know what you want – don’t be afraid to express it!

DO:“To Kate S:
I like you.
You seem really cool and smart.
It’d be great to get to know you better.”

DON’T:“To My Secret Admirer:
You are the love of my life. I think about you all the time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You means absolutely everything to me.
You’re just the best person I have ever known in my whole entire life, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you and only you. I LOVE YOU!!!
Every night you visit me in my dreams. Then I wake up crying because I know it was all just a fantasy. I can’t live without you anymore!!! But I’m too afraid to talk to you – I’m so scared you’ll reject me!”

Reveal Your Identity?

If you want your Secret Admirer Note to really be a secret, don’t sign your name and leave it in a place where you know the right person (and only the right person) will find it. BUT, if you want something to happen, you’re going to have to take the next step:

  1. Sign your name on the note
  2. Leave a clue about your identity
  3. Letting them know that you wrote the note

The third option can be a good one, because you can wait to see how your crush reacts to receiving the note before you make your move. If you decide to go with option No. 2, make sure you leave a pretty good clue – the point is to get your crush to figure out who you are, not to send them on a wild-goose chase or lead them to someone other than you. If you sign your name on the note, well, it’s not really a Secret, anymore, so you can just call it an “Admirer Note!”

DO:“To Kate S:
I like you.
You seem really cool and smart.
It’d be great to get to know you better.
From: Nick”

OR …

DO:“To Kate S:
I like you.
You seem really cool and smart.
It’d be great to get to know you better.
If you want to know who I am, look who’s sitting behind you in math class tomorrow.”

DON’T:“To My Secret Admirer:
You are the love of my life. I think about you all the time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You means absolutely everything to me.
You’re just the best person I have ever known in my whole entire life, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you and only you. I LOVE YOU!!!
Every night you visit me in my dreams. Then I wake up crying because I know it was all just a fantasy. I can’t live without you anymore!!! But I’m too afraid to talk to you – I’m so scared you’ll reject me!
If you want to know who I am, look three desks over and five rows back in either math or science class one day this week.”
