Passionate Love Letters

Love letter

Love letters offer a way to maintain and deepen intimacy, no matter which form they take. Words of love are always appreciated, and a love letter can help convey what you may feel too shy to say in person, or it can be just the beginning of expressing feelings for your lover. These examples can be a good starting point, but you should always write something in your words.

Use these letters for inspiration. Your lover will thank you.

New Love

Dearest Amanda,

I never knew how joyous life could be until I saw your face.
My heart leaps like a hummingbird in flight every time I see you.
This is something I have never felt before, and it is you that inspires it.

When I think about you and our rich conversations, I feel a warmness inside.
I cannot hide my smiles, even when we are apart.
This connection is special, amazing, and I dare say, destiny.

Many have asked what happened to create this new and better me.
I tell them, without hesitation, it is you.
Sometimes I feel like my heart will burst with all the longing and excitement I feel when I think of you.
Looking forward to our next date, beautiful.
May each be better than the last if that is even possible.

Sincerely,

Dave

Missing You

Darling Jake,

At night, I lie down and imagine you are here with me.
I didn't know just how heavy this separation would be in my heart.
I hope you are not in as much utter misery as I am without you.
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, and my fondness has no bounds.

I lie awake and feel the gentle warmth of your breath as it would fall on my cheek.
I imagine the heat of your body pressed against mine; the hardness of your muscles nestling against the softness of mine.
I turn and lay my head against the pillow, feeling your heartbeat drum a lullaby in my ear.
A thousand butterflies kiss at my skin, and I long to feel the softness of your lips.

While I know we will again be together, my yearning in your absence only cements the true depth of my passion.
Until I can see you and hold you again, you will remain omnipresent in my dreams.

Yours,

Emily

Growing Closer

Reading letter

Delilah,

Every word you confide in me, every wonderful and terrible moment you share with me, melts me inside.
You let yourself be vulnerable with me and trust me beyond my comprehension.
I never imagined I would truly find another who I would want to spend so much time with, who could truly touch my life the way you have, even without trying. I look forward to many more special moments together. When I see you, I see my future.

This is not just talk. It truly comes from the heart.
I am consumed by the desire to be with you, to talk to you and to feel you near me.
I want to hold you, talk to you, laugh with you, cry with you.
I want to play, walk, dance and just be one with you. I think you could become my everything. I know I want to be everything to you.

When we are together, I see the love in your eyes.
When you envision your future, do you see me in it, waiting with open arms?
I love you truly, madly, deeply, and I anxiously await your response.

Fondly as Always,

Eugene

Lasting Passion

My Darling,

After all these years we've been together, my heart still flutters when you walk into the room.
In my eyes, you grow more handsome with each passing year.
Everyone told us passion eventually fades when two people spend a lifetime with each other, but that's not true for us, is it?
I want you as much today as I did when our love was new, and everything you do shows me you feel the same way about me.

I only have to look at you, and that touch of gray at your temple makes me want to press my lips there and feel your pulse begin to beat a little faster.
I want to leave a trail of soft kisses across your cheek until I reach your full, perfect lips.
I want to kiss those lips so deeply it takes your breath away and thrills you with promises of pleasures to come.
For now, you can imagine what those pleasures might be, and tonight, I'll fulfill those promises.

Anticipating a romantic evening,

Your One True Love

Writing a Passionate Letter

If you want to write a fiery love letter to the one you love or desire, you will need to do three things.

Create the Mood

To write seductively, you have to feel seductive. To tantalize, you must feel tantalizing. To tempt, you must feel tempting. You can create the mood by envisioning what you would say and do if your partner were there, or you can light some candles, put on some music and create the mood that way.

Visualize Reactions

The second step to writing a passionate missive is to envision your partner's reaction to what you are writing. Language choice is important because you want him or her to feel the emotion as much as experience the promise of what you are sending.

Write Your Letter by Hand

In a world where communications are dominated by the internet, a handwritten letter is more intimate than ever before. Imagine each word as a gentle stroke that touches your lover's soul.

Be Yourself, Be Vulnerable

The most passionate letters are the ones that leave you open to rejection. You have to trust your lover and yourself enough to put it all out there. Be vulnerable, be honest, and let yourself feel the emotions your words inspire. If you feel them, your partner will too, and that's what makes a passionate letter pure magic.
