Perhaps the difference between the males and females here comes in the interpretation of the word "love." At no point do I say, "I'm madly in love with you, I want your babies and I want to marry you RIGHT NOW."
This is adifferent picture than the original start of this thread where it sounded like you two are not even going out or dating or anything. Kissing sounds like there's a relationship going. Give her a real gift and your letter, without the "I love you" and without the judgements you used to have. And find a way to say "I love you", instead of using a letter to do that for you.
