What better way to convey your feelings to your loved one than sending a handwritten love letter?

In this day of hectic work schedules, the common man finds himself in a position where he has no time for the person he loves. But to you, poor, lost, confused souls, I say, “Don’t worry, the obvious is at hand.” For what can be more romantic than sending a handwritten love letter to your loved one, full of romantic words and genuine feelings you have for her? Because believe it or not, love letters are one of the best ways to show your special ones how much you care for them. A heartfelt love letter also makes the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. It also solves the bank balance problem we all seem to get into sometimes. However, remember, not buying gifts should not be made a habit. Also you don’t have to limit yourself to that specific day. Every day is a great opportunity to make your loved one happy by sharing your deepest feelings with her. The great thing about love letters is you don’t have to be a poet or a skilled writer to be able to write them. Everyone — and I really mean everyone — can do it. This openness is what makes love letters special. In case you’re still clueless, here are some ideas.

Idea No. 1: When was the first time you felt you were in love with her? Did anything special happen that made you realise your love? Idea No. 2: What is the best thing about your partner that makes you feel so much in love with her? It could be about her looks or personality. For example you may say “the way her face shines when she smiles.” Refrain from talking about tight clothing, not in a love letter.

Idea No. 3: What positive changes have you made since she entered your life? For example it could be that before you met your partner, you were confused and in darkness and your partner was the light that showed you the way. When your loved one reads this, she will practically feel like she is on the clouds... because it’s coming from you. Idea No. 4: It’s also a good idea to include a really romantic poem at the end or beginning of your letter. Sometimes, nothing can show how we feel better than a good poem. Idea No. 5: And as the last tip: Don’t forget to say “I Love you” at the end of your letter.

This simple yet effective sentence will really seal the deal in your loved one’s mind.

So there, my fellow brethren, go, write and let the love flow (Again, not to be confused with anything physical).
