How to write the perfect love/ lost love letter:


How to write the perfect love/ lost love letter:
I found this blog. It’s a blog where people send in love letters/ I-do-not-love-you-but-really-I-do letters and musings. After reading about 10 I have noticed a pattern.

How to write the perfect love letter:
1.       Tell the person that you love them
2.       Say something about the length of time you have been together and how wonderful it’s been.
3.       Recount 4-8 reasons why
4.       Tell them again that you love them
5.       Tell them that you love the whole them
6.       Be really, really mushy
7.       Sign off with your pet name
How to write the perfect goodbye/ I-do-not-love-you-but-really-I-do letter:
1.       Tell the person how long you have been yearning for them.
2.       Tell them how dreadful it’s been to have unrequited love
3.       Tell them that it rips your heart out to know that you aren’t the one making them happy
a.       If and only if they have confirmed that they are dating someone else.
4.       In short. Annoying. Sentences. Tell the person in an attempt to be dramatic and poetic. How they have. Hurt you.
5.       A tear on the paper would totally add to the effect.
a.       If you could get the tear to actually smear some of the ink, even better.
                                                               i.      Has anyone noticed that tear (rip) and tear (drop of fluid from eye) have the same spelling?
1.       My friend’s kid is learning to read so I’ve been paying more attention to words lately (how they look and sound and what they mean)
6.       Be really dramatic
7.       Sign off with your pet name
8.       For an extra special touch you could always be snarky (especially if you know the recipient still loves you) and say something like “I will always love you”
