If you want to let your guy know how you feel about him, but you have difficulty getting the words out, try putting your emotions in a letter. After all, women aren't the only ones who appreciate a good love letter, and you don't have to wait for a special occasion express yourself. As you'll see in the following examples, any time is the perfect time to remind your boyfriend just how much you love him.
My Dearest Jack,
It was two years ago tonight that you first told me you loved me and asked me to be your girlfriend. You changed my life that evening, and put us on a path that has brought us such joy.
When I look at you today, I realize my love for you grows deeper, richer, and more satisfying as time goes by. Whenever something good happens, you're the first person I want to tell. When something bad happens, I know that I can count on you to take me in your arms and tell me everything will be alright.
I'm the luckiest woman in the world because I can truly say that I'm in love with my best friend. There's not another man in the world that can hold a candle to you, my darling, and I just wanted let you know that I love you more than even the most heartfelt words can express.
Being apart from you is more difficult than I ever imagined. I see reminders of you everywhere I look, and they make me ache to be near you again.
I love you with all my heart, I cherish every moment we spend together, and I love you even more in the moments when we are apart. Tonight as I write this letter, it's like you are right here with me. I feel your hand on my shoulder, your fingers in my hair, and the soft breath of your kiss on my cheek. I miss you darling. Come home soon.
All my love,
Birthday Love Note
Today is your birthday, and I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how much I love you. Just being with you has made all my dreams come true, and I want to do everything I can to make you feel that way too. You deserve to be treasured for being the sweetest, kindest, most thoughtful boyfriend any girl could ask for, and believe me, I do treasure you. I hope we will celebrate your birthday together each year for the rest of our lives.
Happy birthday, sweetheart,
After a Fight
I realize that I over reacted last night, and I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am. The truth is, I can't picture my life without you. When you walk into the room, my heart beats a little faster. When I hear your voice, I melt a little inside. And when I see your sweet face, I know that you are my one true love. When you take me in your arms, it feels like coming home to the only place I belong. Please forgive me, and let me make it up to you tonight.
All my love,
My Sweet Rufus,
If you wonder just how much I love you, wonder no more. You are the sun in my sky, the river that runs through my soul, and the very air I breathe. Before I met you, I didn't believe it was possible to love someone so deeply and completely, but you have given me faith that true love really does exist because I share it with you.
You are the most fortunate man on the planet because you receive a Dear John letter anytime someone writes to you. You are luckier still because my Dear John letters are unmatched in their love, appreciation and tenderness. You send me flowers, I send you a Dear John. You give me tickets to my favorite musical, I give you a Dear John. You give me diamonds for my birthday, I give you a Dear John.
So my dearest, darling John, let me tell you how much I:
Only want you
Love you always, my dearest John.
You were already on my mind when I woke up this morning. Funny how I just can't stop thinking about you. Six months ago we hadn't even met, and now you are the most important person in my life. So, I just wanted to say I love you, and I can't wait to see you again.
Speak From Your Heart
As you can see from these samples, writing a love letter can be as simple or dramatic as you want it to be. You can even add personal touches like enclosing a photo of the two of you, or misting the letter with a little of your perfume. The truly important thing is to say what's in your heart, and say it in your own words so they ring true when your boyfriend reads them. If you get it right and your passion shines through, you just might receive a love letter from him in return.
