Warning! Telling someone you love them is always best done face to face, especially if you're saying it for the first time. A declaration of love by text will not be forgiven in later life if you and that person stick together. (It's a bit like asking someone to marry you by text. A marriage proposal must be done face to face - and on one knee if you're a man). No excuses.
