How much do you love what's-her-face? Here's how to count the ways"_
You will need
- High-quality paper stock
- A good pen
- Your signature scent
- A calligrapher
Step 1 Consider presentation Pick out nice, heavy-stock stationery and a pricey pen. An old-fashioned fountain pen is a classy touch.
Step 2 Set the mood Put on music that moves you, and perhaps place a photo of your love in front of you for inspiration.
If your handwriting will have her wondering why you think her eyes twinkle like doormen and her lips taste like straw beds, consider hiring a calligrapher.
Step 3 Begin lovingly Start with a loving salutation—use a pet name or term of endearment.
Step 4 Make your declaration Declare why you love this person, listing as many reasons as you can.
Step 5 Close devotedly Close your letter with another sentiment of devotion, like ‘Forever yours.’
Step 6 Check spelling Check your spelling. Your missive will quickly change from a turn-on to a turn-off if you write that your lover is ‘eggskwisit’ in all ways.
Wait a day or two and reread your letter several times before mailing it, so you can gain some perspective.
Step 7 Add a final flourish Add a final romantic flourish by sealing the letter the old-fashioned way—with melted wax—and lightly spraying on your signature scent, if you have one. Now await your love’s reply!
