I've often seen people using the word "declare" when they are referring to something like "declaration of independence." But, can I use the word when I want to confess the feeling to someone else?
Yes, you can! A "declaration" is an announcement or proclamation. The "declaration of independence" was an authorised announcement. You can use the word "declare" in formal and informal contexts. Ex: The president declared that we can't go outside without wearing a mask. Ex: I declare that my room is out of bounds. No one can come in unless I say so!
