How to write a romantic email

When it comes to writing, most people out there assume they cannot do it. Repeatedly you hear people say that they are incapable of stringing sentences together in a print medium. However, writing something like a romantic email is not nearly as mentally taxing as most people believe. Caution needs to be taken when writing a romantic email, of course, but it need not be so tough.

Most people spend time guarding their innermost thoughts and feelings. When you write a romantic email you want to take those guards down. Take some time, maybe even a few hours, to think about the person you are writing the romantic email to and decide how you feel about them. Now comes the tough part, removing those feelings that whatever thoughts you have will seem corny or like something your romantic interest has heard before.

It is true, much of the world of romance has been written by the poets and the writers over the centuries. Just remember, however, that the romantic email will arrive at your romantic interest and it will be the first time they have seen those words written for them, by you. Ultimately, this is all that matters.

Keep the email personal. Explain your feelings in a romantic way that expresses how you truly feel. Avoid the temptation to make your writing read like some other writer’s. This is from your heart and the romantic email should read like something you would write. It will mean more if it comes from your heart and not merely something copied from someone else.

If you do use poetry or words from another author, attribute them. Then spend some time writing things in your own words throughout the rest of the romantic email. The personal touch will mean more.

Finally, avoid being too graphic or personal in the email. Remember, emails are not always secure and this is important if the romantic email is going to a work email address. Your intimate activities do not need to be reviewed at work. Keep it loving and romantic, but not intimate and graphic.

Just let the words flow. You will be tempted to edit the romantic email as you write. First, let all of the words flow. Now go back and review the email. Does the grammar work? Is the spelling decent? Did you say anything you didn’t mean or wouldn’t want read?

Now send it and congratulate yourself on writing a romantic email from the heart. You thought, you wrote, you edited and put across something that is meaningful to yourself and, ultimately, to the person you are romantic with.
