How to write a love letter.
The best love letter is the one written in your own language so that the person receiving is in no doubt whom it is from. There are no rules or etiquette. You are the only one that can make the letter perfect as only you can describe how much love you feel for that special person. Each love story is altogether unique so let this be an inspiration, but write the letter in your own words. Here below a few steps to help you get started:

Start with an intimate endearment.
Begin your letter addressing your love in a romantic way. Do you have any special names for each other then using that makes it very personal, but all loving names will make it romantic.
Let the first paragraph tell why you are writing the letter.
A nice way to begin your writing is to focus on the first thought that comes to mind when thinking about your love. Consider for a moment how life has changed for the better since you met, or how much you miss each other when apart. Letting your love be the inspiration from the start gives the letter a definite meaning early on.
The heart of the letter.
Think about the person you are writing to. What are the things you most treasure about her? What did you fall in love with? Describe to her your favorite qualities that you are in love with, and tell her what sets her apart from everyone else. The love letter is about the two of you, and sharing your favorite memories about your life so far will make it truly unique.
Finishing the letter.
If you could sum up your love for her in one sentence what would it be? Make the ending poignant, clearly emphasizing on how wonderful life is when you are together. Before letting the pen rest make sure you have included all the things you wished to say.
Sign it with a personal touch simply by thinking of how you say goodbye to each other and make it romantic but personal all the way through.
