When true love hits, a secret admirer may go to any length to show his feelings. With a nod to the relationship between Peeta and Katniss from The Hunger Games, here is a short list of things your secret admirer might do to help show his love.
Unbeknownst to Katniss, Peeta Mellark was smitten by her, his lady love, at the tender age of only five years old. His feelings for her didn’t waver as the years passed but perhaps only grew stronger as he ultimately ended up saving her life several times and made a public proclamation of his love to all of Panem in The Hunger Games. What would your secret admirer do for you? While it’s unlikely that he would have to consider protecting you while fighting an epic battle to the death, there are smaller, less dramatic ways your secret admirer may choose to win you over. Here are a few sweet things he may do while waiting for cupid’s arrow to hit its mark.
Send an anonymous love note
A traditional favourite that oozes old school romance. The love note, whether anonymous or not, has stood the test of time and although to some it may seem antiquated, it’s still difficult to find a person who can resist the power of a few words that express true feelings. A love note can take on many forms from a heartfelt personal thank-you jotted down on a post-it note to a romantic card signed with love, or anywhere in between.
Whether it be with a large presentation at work, the last minute crunch to finish a term paper or a move to a new apartment, your secret admirer is usually more than ready to help out.
Be your best friend
Need a shoulder to cry on when life gets you down? Count on your secret admirer to be there for you, through thick and thin. He’ll be ready to take your side in almost any circumstance.
Put you first
Your admirer will generally push his own needs aside to make sure yours are taken care of first. He may offer you his hoodie if you’ve caught a chill, take the blame off of you when a group project goes wrong or go out of his way to pick you up from work or school.
An unexpected surprise
Your want-to-be suitor may gift you with an unexpected surprise such as sending flowers to your work, taking your dog for a walk, making you dinner when you’re busy, mowing your lawn or paying for your tab when your group of friends goes out for dinner and drinks.
