12 Love Letters for Him to Let Him Know How You Feel
In today’s right now climate, you’re much more inclined to shoot a text to someone or type out an email than to sit down and hand-write love letters for him, and yet, there is nothing more personal than a hand-written note.
Recently, a friend posed a question on Facebook: What is something you treasure most from friends and family? The number one response was a hand-written note or letter. No joke!
Now, I can already hear you from here. You’re saying, “But Gregg, I have no clue what to write in love letters for him. What can I say that won’t sound cheesy or made up?”

Use them as they are, use them to get some ideas or modify them and put your own spin on them. How you use them is up to you, but they’re guaranteed to work!

Don’t Apply too Much Pressure
It’s easy to psych yourself out over something like this but don’t. Don’t worry about sounding silly or about being embarrassed over what you write. If it truly comes from your heart, he will know, and he won’t think you’re silly at all.
Don’t Wait for a Reason
Sure, it’s nice to send a hand-written note on a birthday or anniversary, but you don’t need a special occasion to send love letters for him! Remember the last time you went to your mailbox and instead of a bill, you found a card or note from someone? Didn’t it immediately make you feel special?
Take Your Time
Don’t rush the process. Set aside some time when the rest of your life is quiet and begin writing. Remember, you have the letters here, plus the bonus letters, as examples to help you get started.
Once you start writing, be thoughtful and take your time.
Don’t try to be someone you’re not, regardless of whether it’s in person or in a love letter. Don’t say things you don’t really mean. Give him the genuine article. Something about you attracted him so there’s no reason to start pretending you’re someone else now.
Let Your True Feelings Flow
This is a time to let those true feelings come pouring out. Let him know how you feel. Be spontaneous. This isn’t the time for an outline. Just start writing and let things come out as they will. You may even surprise yourself at what you put on paper.
Don’t Be so Serious
If you feel like being funny, go for it. If you want the letter to be more romantic or serious, then make it that way. There is no rule on what you can write about. Only you know your relationship and what lies between the two of you. You know best what will appeal to him.
Sometimes, I am asked to speak in online relationship seminars and the host usually provides some email content they want me to send you. Many, no, not many, most of the time, I modify those letters because they don’t align with how I talk to you. Write the letter that fits the circumstance, your mood, or your relationship.
Set Your Mind Fully on Him
Get out that photo of the two of you at the park last summer or the one you took together just before your favorite performer came on stage at a concert.
Next, ask yourself why you want to write to him today. Is he just on your mind and you want to share your thoughts? Is he away and you find yourself missing him? Is there something you want to say? Do you want to make him smile or laugh?
Keep it Short
Just like when you text a man, you want your letter to be short. This doesn’t mean it won’t pack a wallop because it probably will. Just don’t go on and on. Say what you want to say and close the letter.
Make Them Scarce
You don’t need to send him a love letter every week. Make this special by sending them occasionally. Anything done to excess loses its punch and takes the special out of it. Time your love letters for him to arrive when he’s feeling down or when you want to recall something special between you.
Leave a Little of Yourself Behind
After you write your letter, personalize it in some way. Spritz a little of the perfume he loves so much on it or include a photo that has meaning to the letter, or a photo of you. You can also include a few flower petals or something else that will have meaning to him. Each additional effort you put into it makes it that much more special to him.
What Men REALLY Think About Love Letters
I know you think men are big and tough and they don’t want to read sappy love letters, so let me dispel that myth for you right now.
While it’s true that no man wants his buddies to find him wiping away tears after reading a love letter from you, that doesn’t mean he won’t treasure it just the same.
The thing is that when you send a hand-written note, it tells a guy how special he is to you, special enough for you to sit down and take the time to write a note. Even a short love letter for him says, “You’re special to me” in a way nothing else can.
What to Include in Love Letters for Him
The first few sentences can be the most difficult. That’s true of any writing project, I think, to be honest, but once you have the questions above answered, that first sentence or two gets easier. You can say something like, “Tim, I wanted to write to you today just to tell you how much I appreciate the extra time you spent helping me fix up my new house last week. It meant a lot to me that you took time off work to spend a couple days painting and fixing the plumbing under the sink.”
From there, you can transition into something else, like other things he does that you appreciate or how you’re so excited about your upcoming date to go to a concert or football game or whatever.
Don’t be afraid to be a little seductive too. That makes for a good close. Leave him wanting more!

Your focus is on what matters – our relationship.

Love Letters to Reminisce
I smile every time I remember our first date. I saw you first from a distance and your smile and sparkling blue eyes stole my breath away. It made me instantly fearful that I would freeze up when it was time to say “Hello,” but you made me feel so comfortable and instantly I knew you were special.
That day lives on in my mind as the years tick by and I wonder how it’s possible to still be so much in love with you. You’re always there to make me smile when I’m feeling a little down or to share the joys of our life together.
I can’t imagine a day without you and I treasure each memory we have made together so far. I look forward to making many more as we continue our journey together,
With all my heart,
And there’s this one…
We have been through so much together, and whether good or bad, those memories have a special place in my heart.
Being with you makes my day brighter. Every day is an adventure with you, and I still feel a flutter in my stomach when I see you walk into the room.
It reminds me of the first time we met. I was so nervous, but you stole my breath and calmed my nervousness with your calm demeanor and gorgeous smile.
Those many things we’ve done together over the years like hiking in the Smokeys and going white water rafting are special to me and I look forward to a lifetime of exploring and taking risks together.
Thank you for being my best friend,
Today I looked back on the 5 years we have been together. And I thought how lucky I was to have you in my life. It’s funny, I feel the same butterflies when I see you as I did on our first date.
Let’s keep having those first dates!

Love Letters for Him
To My Sweet Love,
Lately, I’ve been stressed. I asked myself what is the best solution to calm myself and you know what the answer was?
Frankly, I had forgotten about this method, maybe even overlooked this option. But no more. YOU are what makes me calm. You are what makes me happy. And you are my key to eliminating stress from now on. Never change my darling.
And this one…
Love of My Life,
A smile came over me today. Memories started jumping into my head – exceptional memories that I will never forget. Like apple picking at Stromberg’s Farm when I spilled wine all over you and our picnic blanket, and how you laughed when others would be angry.
The roller coaster ride at Old Orchard Beach. We were the only adults on the kiddie ride. I laughed and laughed as you held my hand and screamed while you raised your hands.
The surfing lessons we took together in Aruba. We both sucked so bad we almost drowned. But we didn’t. And then we laughed, started drinking, and toasted that we would never surf again!
Can’t wait to see you tomorrow and every day after.
With All My Love,
This morning I looked at our son. The son we created together. I was so proud. He asked me what was wrong as tears filled up my eyes.
I told him nothing…absolutely nothing.
Thank you being you,
A Love Letter for Him After You Fight
I want you to know that our argument last night was not in vain. I learned about you and you about me. I now understand how you feel about the situation, and I will now do things differently going forward.
We won’t need to argue about this subject ever again! I feel even closer to you now.
Love you dearly…
When He’s Feeling Insecure
I want you to know that getting laid off, in my opinion, was a good thing. You are so much better than that job and you were not happy. I’m looking forward to seeing what your next move will be! You are awesome and I will be by your side to support you in your time off or your pursuit of your next career.
With All My Heart,
When You’re Apart
I know it’s lonely where you are. I am lonely being at home without you. It’s okay because I simply check off the days until you’ll be home. Each checkmark makes me more excited. I have made some plans that I know you will love! Wanna know what they are? You will be receiving a box soon that will reveal our plans when you get home.
When He’s Feeling Jealous
My Sweet Love,
I realize my profession has me working with many different men. I want you to know that no man compares to you! They are all a bunch of little boys, and you are my man and my rock. Please, never question my love for you as you are my one and only!
That’s a Wrap
When you write short love letters, or even longer ones, you’re sending more than the physical letter. You’re telling the person receiving the letter that they’re special enough for you to take the time to do something few people do today – to hand-write a letter.
Love letter writing isn’t a twentieth century thing, it goes way back in history and many famous people penned love letters.
While we have other, more immediate ways of communicating with our loved ones, nothing beats a hand-written love letter!
