I don’t know about you but I have been a lover of romantic love letters since I was a very young girl.
Don’t tell anyone but I accidentally found a stack of love letters wrapped up in a ribbon. What girl of nine years old could have resisted opening those love letters if only to see why they were all wrapped in such a lovely red ribbon?
Would you have been able to resist opening them at that age? I certainly could not!
This was a golden pack of pure romantic love letters
They had been written by one of my relatives (I don’t wish to embarrass him too much in public so I will not give away any more clues) to his wife. (Although at the time of writing those romantic love letters she was still his girl-friend) They were also for some time my regular baby-sitter being looked after in their house as she worked at home. My parents were often both still out working when school finished.
I read them all the letters — in secret — dozens of times before I was finally caught. I think I had given the game away when I innocently asked the meaning of some of the terms used in them. I was watched much more carefully after that.
Whilst they were not what would be called explicit nowadays. Certainly the letters would not be erotic love letters or even sexy love letters by today’s standards. However maybe I was so young back then I did not understand the hidden meanings that may have been there.
However at the time those romantic love letters were written they could have been described as very suggestive of things to come after marriage. By that, I mean he wrote about how much he would like to have that loving experience of being able to lie next to her all night. I remember reading about her wrapped up safely in his loving arms. I thought at teh time they were being rather poor sharing only one bed. (I still had a lot to learn at nine years old!)
That is as far probably as things were written in polite society in those days!
Later when I was in my teens I started to receive a number of carefully handwritten love letters myself but have kept most of them safely hidden away. I did not want other people to find them in the way I found the other letters all those years earlier. Even after all these years these early romantic love letters still mean so much to me — in fact in many ways they mean more to me now than they did then.
I think, apart from the good feelings, they bring back some lovely memories and thoughts of good times we spent together.
Can I ask you a question? Do you have any romantic love letters you can share?
I am looking to add more contemporary style love letters to this site and would love to feature yours here as well.
All I would ask is :-
If the love letters were written to you
Please ask the writer’s permission to send me them. If you can’t easily get it them let me know and we can make them anonymous e.g. by removing any personal details which may embarrass them or their new partner (if any). If possible, let us know how it made you feel to receive the letter
If you wrote them yourself
Please state specifically that you are giving us permission to publish as they are. We will not change or remove any names from the letters. It would be nice if you could also give us some of the background to why the particular letter of what results you saw after your partner read it.
To submit any love letters to me please complete the form below.
Hope to hear from you all very soon.
Lots of love
PS I still do receive romantic love letters today but they are all from my husband and I have been married to him for several years (and I write back to him despite the fact we see each other almost every day) I think it is those little things that keep a marriage relationship alive and burning bright, don’t you?
Keep reading and writing romantic love letters to your lover.
