There is no perfect couple in the world.
And if you and your partner are currently going through the hard times, it’s okay. If you genuinely love each other, you must do everything possible to save your relationships.
One simple yet effective thing you can do is to write a heart-warming letter. You can try to express your feelings in words to win your partner back. If you have never created love letters before, use this article as a step-by-step guide.
First things first, you should understand that you don’t need to be an expert in writing to craft a perfect love letter. If you want to save your relationships, you must be just honest. You should tell the truth only truth and nothing but the truth.
Write your heart out. Share your feelings, hopes, and dreams. Be yourself, don’t make “dead” promises, and you will get your relationship back on track.
Evoke sweet memories
Now let’s talk about the structure of your letter. It should consist of a few sections. In the first section, you may discuss the beginning of your relationships. Here are a few interesting topics to cover:
- First date
- First kiss
- First holiday together
- First meeting with his/her family
When discussing the first experience together, you should pay attention to every small detail. Do you remember how your partner was dressed? Do you remember what flowers did he bring you?
Here is an example of how to start your letter:
Do you still remember the day we met? I remember that I had a terrible day at work and I wanted to unwind. I decided to take a peaceful walk to the park. I was walking slowly, lost in my thoughts, and suddenly your little dog Romie attacked me and started bitting my pant leg.
I remember how you screamed: “Romie, stop!”. That moment I turned my head and saw you for the very first time. Your innocent green eyes. Your long beautiful legs. And your funny T-shirt with Mickey Mouse.
You charmed me immediately. I fell in love at first sight.
The more details you will mention, the better. It will remind your partner how happy he/she was with you at the very beginning of your relationships.
List the reasons why you love your partner
What makes your partner special? What makes him/her a perfect match for you? To answer these questions, create a list of “100 reasons why I want to live my life with you”. Try to provide touchy and funny statements:
- I love the way you dance when your favourite song comes on.
- You give me the best head massage ever.
- I love you because you respect my parents and friends.
- I love the way you tuck your hair behind your ears.
- I firmly believe that the red velvet cake you cook for me is the best cake in the word. I’m addicted to it.
Admit your mistakes
To build a healthy relationship, you should learn to admit your mistakes. If you did something wrong in the past, don’t deny it, even if it’s challenging for you.
Did you forget about your partner’s birthday? Or, did you discuss your personal issues with someone on social media? You should admit that you made a colossal mistake and say sorry.
My dear Anna, I’m so sorry that I opened and read your diary! It was the stupidest thing I have ever made! I admit my terrible mistake. I promise I will never do it again. I will always respect your privacy.
Build plans for the future
Naturally, it’s important to discuss your plans for the future. You should write about your expectations, goals, and dreams. Try to answer at least one question from the following list:
- Do you want to move in together?
- Do you want to have kids with your partner? How many kids?
- Do you want to have a dog?
- Do you dream about the wedding? Do you want to get married on the Maldives, in Las Vegas, or maybe a local church in Melbourne?
- Do you want to buy a big house or live in a small apartment?
If you have been arguing a lot about one of these points, it’s time to find a compromise. If you don’t want to lose the love of your life, you should take his/her side. Write a letter that shows that now you are ready to support your beloved.
I used to tell you that I don’t want to have kids. But I have understood that I was wrong. Now I have changed my mind. You are the love of my life, and I want us to have lovely, sweet kids.
I want us to have a baby girl who will have your beautiful green eyes and your gorgeous smile. I want us to have a baby boy who will protect his baby sister. I promise you that I will do my best to create a family of your dreams.
Proofread your letter
Have you just finished writing your love letter? Don’t rush to send it to your partner. You should proofread the text first.
Well, if your partner is not an English teacher, a few grammar mistakes, it will not ruin your relationships. It’s the truth. But if you want to impress your partner, you should make your letter perfect in terms of grammar.
You can proofread your letter by yourself, or ask your best friend to make it instead of you. Or, you can use online grammar checkers that guarantee 100% confidentiality of your love correspondence.
Wrapping it up
Believe you or not, but a love letter can change a lot in your relationships. It may help your beloved to remember all the best moments and forget the rest.
Well, the letter is not a magic wand. It will not help you to save the love that has already died. But if your love is still alive, a heart touching letter will help to fix the relationships.
