Write Love Letters

Write Love Letters Romantic Idea

One of the most romantic gestures is to write love letters to your sweetheart. Expressing in words what is in your heart is a priceless gift.

Since love letters can be saved and re-read, there may be some considerable hesitance to write one. What makes a love letter so special is that it's a lasting imprint of you.

In the beginning of a relationship, it's important not to overwhelm your beloved and push her/him away. As a relationship grows, there is an increasing desire to be close to one another, and a small reminder or reassurance of your love can make a significant difference in your relationship.


You can write meaningful love letters using this simple method.


Opening

Where do you start? With an opening of course. Your own unique style as well as the type and the length of your relationship will determine the opening or greeting. See below for some examples.

Now just start writing. Form your sentences specifically around the words you chose. This is just to get your ideas on paper and into a rough draft. Don't worry about spelling, grammar or how it sounds for now. Focus your thoughts. The words will flow as your love guides you. All you need is already in your heart.

Some examples:

I can't stop thinking about....
When you....
I feel....
You make....
Being with you....
The first time I.....
Your (physical feature)...
Every time....
Because of you...
Even now....
With you....
When we touch....
I dream of....
I fantasize....
You're special because....
I want....

Will you....
Your kiss....
Your voice....
By my side....
My heart....
Our future together....
The first time we met....
I knew I loved you....
I admire your....
You are unique....
Having you means....
I've grown....
When we're alone....
Our love story....
Without you....
You are...


Look up love song lyrics for words or phrases to customize, but don't copy them word for word. The purpose of a love letter is that it's your writing, not someone else's.

If you get stuck, review the word list again or stop and come back to it later.


Closing

Now that you've done all the hard work of pouring your heart out on paper, use a closing with your name. Be creative with some of the examples below.

Editing

Edit your first draft. Read it out loud. Make some more changes and adjustments. This step may take more than one day so don't rush. Add some more descriptive words from the list to your sentences. Order the flow or your sentences so that similar ideas are grouped together in a paragraph and different ideas are in separate paragraphs.

Review your final draft for spelling and grammatical errors by using spellcheck on your computer. If you are not very good with grammar and have a trustworthy friend who is, have them read it for proper grammar.

Place the date on your love letter since it will be a lasting reminder for years to come.

Don't look for perfection or you will never give the letter to your loved one.


Presenting

Present your love letters creatively using: your own handwriting, calligraphy or a calligraphy font, a scroll, stationery paper, folded as an origami heart, enlarged as a poster, message in a bottle, attached to a gift, personalized sculpture, etc.

Now that you know how to express your heart in words, don't stop with just one.

Write love letters throughout your relationship to bring you both closer and keep your passion alive in the years ahead.
