In today's electronic age, letter love writing has become a lost art. Email, text messaging, and cellular phones have replaced the love letter. In addition, the expression of love through writing has slowly declined. How much can you say in a text message anyways?
The decline of letter love writing, however, has interestingly lead to its effectiveness as a way to express love. Your lover has probably been showered with hundreds of emails and texts. It is all pretty much the same old, same old. So imagine his/her joy when they get a real HAND written love letter in the mail. (A great idea would be placing a letter around the house in a place you know she will find it.)
A real love letter is a refreshing way to express your love. There are good chances that your love letter is probably the first love letter that he or she has ever got, which makes the letter even more memorable. Expressing love through letter writing shows thought and it is the thought that counts. It won't matter to your lover if your letter love writing skills are not up to par; he/she will see the thought.
Here are some Love Letters Secrets:
1. Write a draft first. Remember those essay writing rules? You're gonna have to apply them again. Yes, letter love writing is a bit like homework. However, your love writing will definitely have better and more pleasing results than homework ever did.
2. Hand write it. Your lover is tired of seeing text done by computer, whether it be on the phone or computer. Your own handwriting will be something new and probably a side of you he/she has never seen. One more thing to keep in mind: legible handwriting.
3. Don't try that hard. If you're not Shakespeare, don't be Shakespeare. Be yourself. Just write the way you would talk.
4. Another part of letter love writing is using images and memories from your own relationship in the letter. This makes the letter more personal. Your lover will realize you are writing for him/her. Pick special moment and say: "Remember this?"
5. This is a letter of love writing. Don't be too graphic (unless that is how your relationship works). You want your lover to know that you love her for the emotional aspects, not just the physical.
6.Just do it. The hardest part is picking up the pen. If you don't start, how are you going to get it done? Remember it is the thought that counts. The rewards of a letter love writing will surely make up for the effort.
