Are you in love? Have you found that someone special? So, now comes the time to express your love, to say the three most beautiful words in the world, i.e., "I Love You". You must be wondering how to go about it. One of the best and the most expressive ways to say the three magic words is by writing a love letter. If you are wondering "how to write a love letter", look no further. In the following lines, we are giving some great ideas for writing the perfect love letter…

Be Original
Nothing in the whole world is more irritating than receiving a love letter that has been copied or written by someone other than your lover. Love, itself, fills your heart with so many feelings that you don't need to look anywhere else. You don't need to be Shakespeare to write a love letter. Just write down your true feelings and we assure you, your beloved will find it the bestest love letter in the world.

Write the Letter
DO NOT type or print the letter. It is the worst thing to do and makes the letter highly impersonal. Ok, we agree that you may not have the perfect handwriting, but you only need to make the letter legible. Remember, in the end it is the feelings and the emotions that count.

Arrange for Some Mushy Stationery
Go and buy a cute and mushy writing pad. It will make the love letter seem even lovelier. Also, remember that the paper should be of good quality and last lasting. This is so because people generally like to keep a love letter with them for a long time.

Don't Use Complicated Words
Don't try to impress your beloved by flaunting a very complex vocabulary, which he/she may not even understand. Write simple words and phrases and concentrate more on how you feel about him/her. And, please try to avoid using the much-repeated love quotes.

Don't Make It Too Long
A love letter should be long enough to express your feelings and short enough not to bore the other person. A ten pages long letter will eventually turn off your beloved.

Other Important Points
  • Use proper salutations like Dear, Dearest, Sweetheart, Beloved, etc, depending upon the depth of your relationship.
  • Date your love letter. So that after many years when you will look at it again, it will bring back all the lovely memories.
  • The start of the letter should be such that it interests the other person to read more.
  • Closing of the letter should be done in a very romantic manner. Sign off as Always Yours, Yours Lovingly, etc.
  • Please make sure that you have not made any grammatical mistakes in the love letter.
