We're not saying you and your ex might never get back together, but chances are she'll steer clear if you attempt to do it this way:
This screen grab was taken from ILoveYouAlyssa.com, built by a spurned ex and dedicated to loving the Alyssa that got away. Featured on the homepage above is a letter to Alyssa (whose last name is never mentioned). It reads:
Alyssa, I want you to know how much I miss you. I mean every word I have said to you or written to you with all my heart.

I have said and written a lot, yet somehow I miss you and love you more than I can put into words.

The page has since been pulled, but these screenshots still remain over at Gawker. The other pages (yes, there's more!) include quotes to Alyssa ("I miss my SEXAY BABAY !!!!"), promises to Alyssa ("I promise that we will merge a lot more than just bank accounts"), memories of [doin' it with] Alyssa ("Remember when we 'put in overtime' in my office. On my desk"), and things about Alyssa that are missed ("I miss you saying 'He has the craziest look in his eyes'").
As for the aforementioned Alyssa, she has reportedly "seen the website and is appropriately horrified by it."
