Sample Love Letters - Happy Or Sad, Say It With A Letter

Writing A Love Letter

Love is a strong emotion that moves many and yet few people possess the words to come up with a touching love letter. In fact, a lot of people have deep feelings to share but just cannot put words onto paper. No doubt you can always tell a person verbally how you feel but a love letter gives a special touch to the meaning of love. Alternatively, a letter can also be written when it becomes awkward to express your emotions face-to-face during a break-up.

For a few sample love letters, scroll down and check them out.

Say I Love You With A Message In A Bottle

Sample Love Letter To Say I Love You

When You Want To Say It But Doesn't Know How

If you are the type of person who is not too comfortable talking about your deepest feelings, a written love letter provides an avenue to open up your heart. This one below is a sample love letter to let your partner knows how much you care.

To My Dearest ...,

You know that I'm a person of few words. I don't often say what is on my mind and even if I do, it usually doesn't come out quite right. But what I do not express verbally doesn't mean I don't feel it in my heart.

I may not say I love you everyday as some do. I may not have bought you beautiful gifts on occasions that matter. I may not have empathized when you were crying out for understanding. And I may not have done the right things to make you feel loved.

If you are going to judge me on these things alone, I know I have failed miserably. But if only you could look through my heart to see who it is beating for, you would know the depth of my love for you.

Darling, my emotions may not show but a love that is mostly hidden like mine is always deep and eternal. My heart can accommodate no other apart from you and I know this is how it is going to be for the rest of my life.

Expressionless I may be. Cold I may seem. But true love doesn't need to be shown. It resides in the heart just as how it resides deep in mine. And no matter the seasons that will come and go, it will be there withstanding the test of time.

As I write this today, the words are hard to flow. It is not my nature to be expressive. But no matter what, I want you to know that you are loved and cherished. And I want you to know that I do care. My words will never be able to describe exactly how I feel so, let me end this letter with 3 simple words, straight from my heart:

I love you.

Forever yours ...

Don't Forget A Romantic Gift To Go Along With Your Letter

Sample Love Letter For A New Relationship

When It Is Still Early But The Feeling Is Deep

If you know you have met someone who is truly special, this sample love letter can help you to express how you feel.

My Dearest ...,

Up until a few months ago, I still believe that true love only happens to others. I, on the other hand, was contented leading a solitary existence given my own eccentricities. But fate obviously has different plans in store for me when our paths crossed.

When we first met, feelings that I didn't know existed stirred in my heart. An unexplained desire to know you better and a burning hope that I made a good impression. It is not often that we come across a person in our lives that we want him/her to take notice of us and ignite the spark that is embedded in our hearts.

You are that person to me and my instinct has not been wrong. With each successive date, I come home with a stronger and stronger longing to make this last. A firmer belief that you are the one that I could share my life with. And a deepening love that reached a depth that I have never ever experienced.

For some, love doesn't occur in an instant. Even I used to think that love takes some time to grow, especially the kind of deep love that envelops us now. But love can also be strange. If the person feels right in every way, love can take on a level of intensity that we never knew we are capable of feeling.

And this is what I'm experiencing right now. Being with you is comfort, love, security, contentment, passion and happiness, all rolled into one. A myriad of feelings but each works with one another to build a profound emotion in my heart that only you are capable of arousing. This relationship may be fairly new right now but I can earnestly say that I love you with all my heart.

Loving you always ...

When a relationship is still fairly new, the sample love letter above should help to cement it further. Give it on a special occasion together with a romantic gift would melt away your beloved's heart.

Something To Heal A Broken Heart - When It Hurts Terribly...

Sample Love Letter For A Break-Up

When You Want To Say Goodbye

Sometimes, when you need to get out of a relationship, things can become awkward and you may not be able to tell your partner exactly how you feel. A letter solves that problem because in a lot of cases, breaking up doesn't mean you don't care about him or her anymore. You still want the person to be happy and move on in life.

Dear ...,

Sometimes, it comes a point in our lives when we have to think what we are doing and where we are heading. When happiness fades, we need to look for new beginnings. When love dies, we need to step away and carve out the dead feelings.

I know it is difficult to let this relationship go. We have been through so much together that it hurts just recalling a tiny fraction of the time we spent as a couple. But I also know it will only hurt more if we let this relationship drift. The same inevitable parting will confront us then making it even harder for us to recover and find that elusive happiness and peace of mind.

We have had our fair share of love and happiness. Let that be the memories that will stay with us as we go our separate ways. Continuing on will only leave us with more bitter recollections that will overwhelm the happier shades that we once shared. That's simply because true happy moments will never be possible from now on when the magical feeling has long gone. Instead, what will set in is indifference, making us strangers, not lovers, in our own home.

Perhaps you will find that I'm trying to justify my decision to move on. To alleviate my guilt of leaving this relationship. Maybe I'm and for that I'm truly sorry. But I also strongly believe that a person as special as you deserves someone much better. Someone who can love and cherish you the way a lover should rather than depending on crumbs from a dying feeling which is better left buried.

Therefore, this relationship is over. Harsh it may seem but I also want both of us to be happy. If I can't feel it in my heart, neither can I give you what you rightly deserve. That being the case, let us go and seek our own rainbows, which I'm sure will appear when the time is right.

Goodbye and take care.

Sincerely ...

Sometimes, even if we are the ones who initiate the break-up, it doesn't mean our hearts don't hurt. But as people say time heals all wounds. So, give it some time and the hurt will gradually lessen.

Love Poems To Go With Your Love Letter - When You Want To Make It Even More Romantic

One idea that you can incorporate into your love letter is to include a love poem. If you can put your feelings into a verse or two that should make your love letter even sweeter and more romantic. Try it for that special touch.

And if you are unsure of how to write a short love poem, I have a Facebook page with a collection of rhyming love poems at which you can check out.

Sample Love Letters... One Word Of Caution

These sample love letters are there to give you ideas for your own letter. Do not copy them word for word because it can create suspicion that they are not your own work. All your partner needs to do is to type a portion of the letter into Google search and he or she will know where you have copied it from.

When that happens, it puts your sincerity into question and your relationship will be jeopardized. Try to rewrite the letter in your own words and make your letter unique to your situation. That is the best love letter of all.

How To Write Love Letters

As mentioned, do not blindly copy sample love letters that you have found from the web to give to your beloved. If you are really struggling, try getting a guide to help you out. Put in the effort, and it will be much more satisfying giving such a love letter to your partner. If it is straight from your heart, your partner will know it and imagine how touched she would feel.

He ended up moving away from me to pursue a new life. I knew in my heart that he would be the only one to make me happy. I was relieved when I found your email on a site about what you have done. I requested 1 to 2 day casting of the reunite us love spell and within 3days mark company had relocated him back to our hometown where I still lived.

hello my name is Alex i am frm Washington have a story similar to your friend Clara. my wife of almost 3 years said the exact same thing, that she wasn't sure if she wanted to be with me, and after 10 days, moved out. We have a son together and that complicates things further. Luckily, I haven't been hysterical and freaking out like I normally would. I know that will only push her further away. my days of not seeing her it feels like absolute hell. she came back to get her stuff and to talk to me and she said she would still be there for me. I don't know if it was out of being truly genuine or because of our son. I truly love this woman, I know I want to spend the rest of my life with her. and the biological factor is so true. we've had our ups and downs but when it came down to it, we always kissed and made up. I honestly don't know what happened, as far i was concerned i would do everything to bring her back to me.along the line i was happy for brigs which introduce me to a spell caster This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

anonymous on January 21, 2012:

the hardest part of love is ending it all. placing feelings and emotions behind to move forward with the your life. The presence of the person whom you love grows to hurt especially when they don't recognize the other person value they poses. It's hard to let go mentally but emotionally its wats best. 2011 i have to let go and love me. He didn't 9 years fool of me.

StellaSingles on January 20, 2012:

The "Love break-up" letter concept confused me. I understand it's a good idea to remain friends, and to show that while you do care about that person, you just feel you have to move on. But I think a "love" letter might be sending the wrong signal.

Otherwise, I love to write and receive love letters. They're so sweet.

Moving on after a relationship break up is not easy for some. Don't waste any more time crying for your ex; it is important for you to learn how to get over your ex when the relationship is over. Think as well of the future; you wonât be able to share unique experiences and feelings with a future partner if you donât get over and move on after the break up.
