Every so often an article about the most romantic love letters of all time goes viral. It makes people nostalgic for the past when traditional mail was more common, and life seemed a little slower. There is just something about a handwritten missive, declaring your love for the person you wan to spend the rest of your life with. Here are some helpful hints on how to write the perfect love letter for the one you love.
Use your own voice:
It may be tempting to try to be poetic and flowery. Don’t. Try to write it the way you speak or write things. Not only will it be easier for you to get your thoughts and feelings out, it will also be more authentic when your partner reads it. By writing it in the way you would naturally express yourself means that for years to come, when the letter is lovingly reread, they will be able to hear you. And what could be more romantic than that?
Go Beyond The Physical:
Sure, you could look into their eyes for eternity. Or maybe you think their smile lights up the room. However, also make sure you tell them about how much you adore the fierceness of their spirit or their zany sense of humour or any of the many little quirks of theirs which make them so uniquely loveable. While it is important to make sure your partner feels beautiful and desired, it is equally important to make sure they feel respected and important.
When You Knew:
There is usually a moment when most people knew for sure they were in love. Why not tell your special someone the moment you knew they were the one for you? Sometimes it a big moment, like when they stepped up and were there when you really needed them. Other times, it is something which would seem so normal to anyone else but made you realize there was no one else in the world for you. Whenever it was, letting them know is a sweet way to tell them how long you have been in love.
Past, Present, Future:
Make your love letter a road map of your relationship. Start with a sweet memory of when you first started dating or maybe the first time you saw each other then move on to how amazing the life you have created with one another is and finish with some hopes and dreams for the future. This will show not only how treasured the memories you together are, but also that you are excited about what the adventures wait on the horizon for you both.
