I haven’t had feelings this strongly for someone in a long time.

And

Use #2.

In #2, it's the feeling that is strong. The adjective 'strong' modifies the noun 'feelings'. It's an easy and simple meaning.

In #1, the adverb 'strongly' modifies the verb. It means that it is the having that is strong. This is an awkward thing to say.
