how to write a love letter

Love letters are time immemorial and beautiful. And they’re the best gift any lover can ever give or get. Find out how to write a love letter the easy way. By Alice Whitten

Ever wanted to do more than just express words of love over the telephone?

What about those times when you were up late at night, missing your sweetheart and wishing there was some way you could tell them everything that’s waiting to explode inside your head?

Well, there are ways.

And the best way to pour your heart out to a lover is through a heartfelt love letter.

Here’s everything you need to know about wearing your heart on your sleeves and writing a love letter, the romantic way.

How to write a love letter – Why we need them

Surprisingly, most people underestimate the power of a good love letter.

To many, writing a love letter is nothing but a way to pour out what’s in the heart, but at the same time, we could do that over the phone or in the middle of a conversation, can’t we?

But that’s where we lose the whole point of a romantic love letter. When you write a letter, it’s a one sided conversation, expressing the romantic feelings that one experiences because of the thoughts of another special person.

A love letter is more than just words. Knowing how to write a love letter is like understanding the art of seducing and melting a heart with precious words, a way by which we can pour all the love than we hold inside without any interruptions.

Love letters are complicated affairs

No, they’re not! And why should they be? Well, I’d understand if you say you have a hard time getting past a few lines once you begin, but that’s what all of us face. Even the biggest poets and literary scholars too have had their share of problems with the pen. If you can’t get past the first page of a love letter, it just doesn’t mean you’re not in love or that you’re a bad writer.

It just shows that you can’t really explain what you’re feeling at that moment, and that’s just natural, because there are so many different things you can say and you just don’t know where to begin. In this feature, you’d find the most important rules on writing a love letter. Use these tips on how to write a love letter to help you pen down the perfect love note that you’ve always yearned to write.

The romantic setting

If you really want to understand how to write a love letter, you need to feel it and imagine your love.

Let’s try imagining something. Have you watched a horror flick or a nerve throbbing action flick lately? How did you feel after the movie? Excited? Or did you want to pound a few people yourself?

Now let’s reminisce about the movie ‘Titanic’. Wasn’t that such a touching movie? You may have watched it so many times that you’d probably end up feeling drowsy midway, but the movie has a certain charm in it that still grips your romantic heart, doesn’t it?

Now that’s exactly how you need to feel when you want to write a love letter. You just can’t write a touching note whenever or wherever you want. You need to feel the love flowing through your veins. If you watch a chick flick or a mushy movie that pricks the chords of your heart before you pen your thoughts, you’d be able to bring out words and feelings that would not just be romantic, but also intense.

Another great way to feel the love and have the creative buzz on a high is by sitting in a place that makes you feel romantic. A lawn, a balcony on a clear moonlit night or a slab of stone beside a stream is a perfect setting to put loving thoughts on paper.

One of the most important accessories that can help you write a love letter is music. Romantic, soft mood music can help you collect your thoughts and put them on paper in a very touching way. So before you start writing, make sure you sit in a romantic place, and wait until you feel an overwhelming surge of love, and once you feel it, don’t stop writing! [Read: How to find love]

How to write a love letter

How do you like to dress up when you have to go out on a date? Of course, you want to look your best. The same goes with love letters. Pick up the best stationary you can find, handmade soft paper in neutral soft colors, a smooth writing fountain pen with black or brown ink and a beautiful crisp clean envelope. Word documents and print outs never really have the same effect as writing a love letter.

Remember, a love note is something that will be treasured forever. So keep it beautiful and neat, and most importantly, personal.

    Ladies, love letters do NOT work on men! I’m 28 and I’ve used love letters twice, to 2 diff, guys. The first guy, I gave it to him and he let his friends read it and they all laughed and he tore it up! The 2nd guy said he was “flattered”, but he avoided me after that even though prior to the letter, we’d always go out as friends. So yeah…I guess that works on women, but men dont care.

    I read Tanya’s remark that love letters to do work. I’m not going to disagree entirely but I will say this….they work for some men. Perhaps Tanya’s group of men are young and immature. My fianc

    Maybe because you gave it to the wrong guys? Real men appreciate letters given to them. I’m a man and I like to read letters given to me. It makes me feel special.
