    Re: put

    [1] I want to say "I love you" to my girlfriend, but I am afraid to put it in front of her.

    It's awkward, but not entirely incorrect. It's another way of saying that you are afraid to say something that will force her to answer truthfully. That is, by telling her that you love her, you're putting her on the spot to tell you if she loves you in return.
    Ex: I want to say "I love you" to my girlfriend, but I am afraid of putting her on the spot.
    [2a] What has put you in such a terrible problems?
    [2b] What has put you in such a terrible mood?

    Thank you Casiopea.

    I want to say "I love you" to my girlfriend, but I am afraid to put it in front of her.
    I know put means to express in words. So by the "put it in front of her", I mean that I can't express my love in words when I am standing facing her face"

    Re: put

    OK. Then what about?
    I want to say "I love you" to my girlfriend, but
    ... I don't know how to put it (how to say it) without losing my nerve.
    ... I don't know if I can say it to her without ...
    ... I don't know if I will be able to say it to her without ...
    Do those help? If not, you could always say, "Will you marry me?"
