The tradition of writing love letters seems to have gotten lost over the years. It's a shame. Hallmark will never be able to come up with something as good and as deeply touching as words that came directly from your heart.
Intimidated by the idea? Don't be! Here, sincerity counts for more than perfection. Not sure where to start? Here are some tips:
I love how you….
I notice how you always (now there is a good use of “always”)….
I enjoyed watching you….
You amazed me when…..
I will never forget the admiration I felt when…
You introduced our family to…..
I love to watch you…
Everyday I see you … and it makes me…..
Most importantly, as you begin to write, you may feel silly, bashful, or overly critical of yourself. Keep writing! You are feeling the vulnerability of sharing your love! That vulnerability is what a love letter is all about and it will come off the paper and offer your partner a feeling of warmth, love and connection like nothing else. Enjoy the moment!
There is no deadline for this. It doesn’t have to coincide with a special occasion or a holiday, but it does have to come from the place of love, respect, and care.
So, what are you waiting for? Get writing!
