Sample Love Letter
This is what my A-game looks like, the written word. My mouth tends to betray my thoughts whereas my strength lies here, on a page. I realized that this letter was necessary when I proclaimed, in no uncertain terms, that I would “win you” as if you were a carnival prize. What I had meant to say is that I intend to win your heart. I realize this is an unconventional and outdated method of communication when I could have texted you ‘U R Awesome!’, perhaps an ‘<3 <3’ emoji or a Facebook PM with a mixture of both. While I do not know if you’ve ever received a real “Letter” before I have personally never written one, so this shall, hopefully, be an adventure for us both. My purpose is to express my thoughts and feelings which are; I think you’re extremely beautiful and incredibly amazing.
The other night you said, I’m paraphrasing, that everyone needs to be wanted and that you were no different, I had to smile because I’m certain that no one in this universe wants you more than I. Your smile disarms and paralyzes me, your eyes hold me breathless and your laughter turns my heart to butter. I love your constant strength, your occasional vulnerability and your wry playfulness. I love how competitive you are and how angry you get when you lose. Most of all I just love being around you, pure and simple. From the moment I met you, through your concern for my well being until this very moment I’ve never wavered.
I’m writing this to you because life is short and so many people pass through it never really chasing their dreams. They never say what’s on their minds and in their hearts. They live in regrets and ‘what ifs?’. I should know, I too have a list of them. I’ve spent a good majority of my life using fear as an excuse not to go after what I really wanted. That’s not why we exist, we’re here to chase our desires and I desire to spend time with you. I have absolutely no idea what happens now, if anything, but I’m not afraid to find out because you’re worth it.
So I guess this letter would be considered my statement of intent. My dream is to be there when your dreams manifest, to witness the joy on your face and the passion in your eyes. My wish is to be a contribution to your happiness and my desire is for you to be mine.
In reading this I hope that you, at bare minimum, have found some measure of warmth, comfort and happiness from the knowledge that you are so very wanted. My only request is that this letter and its contents remain between us. It’s one thing to bare one’s soul to a single recipient and quite another to be open for ridicule and embarrassment of others.

With Love and Affection,
P.S. The fact that a hand written letter is considered a more personal approach, in my case it would also result in an unreadable mess.(insert emoji here)
