Am just posting as anonymous as some people here know me and my boyfriend. My boyfriend asked me to write him a love letter while he's on holiday. I'm fine with doing this, but I sat down to write it the other day and have no idea what to put!! The last time I wrote one was when I was about 15, so thats 7 years ago! I really love him and even think he's the one, but what do you say in this sort of letter? Just tell him how I feel about him? I feel like a bit of an idiot but don't want to write something really stupid.

asking for a letter ruins it in my opinion. you expect it and its not as good not being a suprise.
but anyway- just write what you feel about him, they way you see him, what you think about him. you will be suprised; the more you write, the more you will think of

Just be honest. There's no point trying to hold back your emotions, just let it all out. Yes, it may seem terribly cheesy, but there's no point writing a love letter unless "it's from the heart".
Just put pen to paper and hopefully the writing will flow!
Oh and don't feel like an idiot, openess and honesty is good in a relationship. Your boyfriend won't ridicule you for it, he'll more than likely feel complimented and see it as an ego massage!

I wrote one to my g/f before I went off on a 4 week trip around Europe, having never written one before. I just said how I felt, and how much I would miss her etc. If you knew me, I'm really not the type of guy to open up or show anyone any emotion so it was a lot harder for me than most, but then I thought "she's my g/f, she of all people should know exactly how I feel".

Thanks guys. Guess I will just sit down and open up. I have really deep feelings for him so it shouldn't be too hard. Just need to get confidence up about it!

Try to conjure up some inspiration - it'll be much harder to write if you're not in the mood. So look at photos of the two of you, read old messages, diary entries, whatever ... I personally don't think i could do it unless I was at that moment brimming with fond thoughts and affection for my loved one

My boyfriends never written me a love letter in the 3 and a half years we have been together
I want one!
Anyway, what I would probably do if I were writing one would be to start off by writing down in a totally unstructured way all of the things that I could think of off of the top of my head that I wanted to say. Just like a collection of sentances or paragraphs that you would like to mention somewhere in the letter. Then when I was satisfied that Id 'listed' everything Id try to add some structure to it, fill in the gaps and make it into a proper letter.
This will probably take some time to do and you will probably end up re writing it again and again as you think of other things you want to say, and remove things you have had second thoughts about.
Although this could result in it sounding a bit too...'stiff' (cant think of a better word!) and not from the heart.
Of course the best way to probably do it would be to just go for it sit down with some photos, old cards etc etc and add things as and when you think of them- create a draft and then edit it.
