Outline Of A Love Letter

If you're especially anxious about writing your feelings down, consider making an outline. The outline of a love letter should include your thoughts in a more organized way.

Write down three things that make you smile when you think about the person you're writing the love letter too. For example.....

From a man's perspective; I Smile When.....

1. I smell her perfume although she's not around

2. She sends photos of herself to my phone

3. When I hear her favorite song on the radio.

From a woman's perspective: I Smile When....

1. He calls me to see if I made it safely to work

2. He surprises me by cooking dinner

3. He brings my favorite desert out of the blue

Touch on these thoughts as you write. If it helps, create three paragraphs around these thoughts. If you're smiling, there's a big chance that the person reading it will be too.

Using an outline will help you maintain a good flow throughout. It's important to remain focused, so that the person reading the love letter can understand your thoughts clearly.

The Begining Of A Love Letter

Now that you have your outline, it's time to get started. The beginning of a love letter may include the following:

1. A greeting ( Dear, My Love, My Dearest, Beloved and, so on)

2. The reason for the letter

The beginning of any letter must grab the attention of the reader. This portion of the letter will set the tone for the rest of the body. Be careful to not sound to cheesy in the start, it may cause the reader to mistrust the rest of the the love letter.

Truly express the lovely feelings that you've held inside. The more authentic you are the more soul touching your letter will be!

Don't over do it. Just keep it simple. The expressions of love will be within the body portion of your letter. The beginning, is somewhat of a prelude to a story. Your love story.

The Body Of A Love Letter

The body of a love letter is where you'll express your feelings. Take your time in this section. It's the heart of the letter.

Create a scene in your mind. Imagine if you could speak the words that you intend to write. Now, imagine how the other person will look and feel. Imagine them blushing or smiling, after you give them a compliment. If your relationship is going well, then you have a good idea of what that looks like.

Once you have that image in your head, begin to write. Tell the person that you appreciate them in more detail. For example:

" I'm really enjoying the time that we spend together. You have a way of making me feel complete. I can see you smiling right now."

Something as simple as showing a person, that you're imagining them as you write, makes a huge difference! They will feel your sincerity. Nothing generic will come across when you include the images you see when you think of them.

Depending on the relationship you may want to hold back on any naughty or erotic talk. This is a huge turn off if your relationship has yet to reach this stage. If you just can't help yourself, keep the naughty talk to a minimum to be on the safe side.

The Ending Of A Love Letter

Now that you're done with the beginning and body, it's time to move on to the ending of the love letter.You're in the home stretch now. Let's get a home run by making the ending memorable.

The ending should include expectations for the future. You should have an idea of what you're expecting out of the relationship. When you speak of the future, it will allow the other person to feel secure in the relationship.

Relationship goals are an important part of communication in a relationship. A love letter is something that is given and rarely taken back so mean what you say when it comes to expressing your plans for the future or your words may come back to bite!

Also, keep in mind that the other person may have expectations too. Really dig deep and don't just tell them what they want to hear. This is your chance to lay a solid foundation of ideas for the future. Not all love letters are meant to be full of mushy thoughts and whimsical ideas. Some letters are simply an expression of love or an affirmation of two souls put into words. Just remember written words last forever.....

Last but not least, make sure that you end it with a big "I LOVE YOU"!

Love Letter Email, Anonymous, In Person

Love Letter Delivery

A love letter sent by email, in secret, or through regular mail, needs a little something extra. Show them how special they are with a special delivery. Here are a few ways to send an otherwise dull looking letter, in a more romantic way:

1. If you decide to hand write your letter, do so on romantic stationary paper. The presentation is important too. If you are mailing it, be sure that your letter stands out from the rest.

2. When sending an email, make sure that you upload a romantic picture. Especially, if the picture is of the two of you. Also, change the font and color. Sending a love letter in this manner is sure to impress.

3. If your thinking about secretly stashing the love letter, you can do so by: putting it in your partner's bag, underneath a pillow or in a coat pocket. Be sure to not give it away. Don't ruin the surprise by being overly anxious. They will eventually find it. The surprise love letter is a sure hit!

      In my eyes I see you as the most

      Beautiful marvel of creation

      In my arms your very presence is

      Heavenly inspiration

      From the heart to the heart

      I mean every word I say

      With my body to your body

      I will adore you in every way

      With my life I surrender

      My entire being beyond compare

      Through all my days

      And in all my nights

      To cherish

      To care

      To always be

      Forever yours

      oh i do wish i could have read this when i was 16-writing a good love letter is very difficult to keep a balance between over sentimentality and crawling.

      its so much easier just to send a nice text to my wife now.

      @AdrienneZMilligan what does your husband think of your love letters... mines like reading them but is not really into writing them. He's good at giving gifts though :)

      This is lovely - and like so many things - we have to have guidance and learn the lessons. And it is so important knowing how to do this. Sometime ago I wrote a hub about how NOT to write a love letter. So now we have balance.

      Thanks a lot and rated up! Yay!

      Congrats on the HubNuggets nomination! Great article! I always have fun stashing a love letter to my husband under his pillow, in a packet in his suit jacket, in the cooler bag he takes for lunch, or on his laptop.

      Nice hub, Love is always such a good topic to gush about. If I may make a suggestion, maybe re-edit the hub and exclude writing how the letter "should" be done, because love in itself is such an individual and personal thing, whether shared or not, that people will be closed off a little by being told how they should do something out of that feeling. Great work fellow hubnuggeter.
