Anonymous love letters are quite fun, both for the writer and the recipient. What better combination than love and mystery? Anonymous letters are a great choice for people who haven’t really entered into a relationship yet but would certainly like one to happen. It might just be the spark that ignites a budding romance.
Perhaps you have gone on a date or two, but things seem to be progressing a little too slowly. You are both shy and even a bit awkward when you go out, and it’s almost impossible to talk about anything more complicated than history class or the game Friday night. You really like him a lot, but you are pretty sure he doesn’t have a clue. After all, neither of you has been brave enough to broach the subject!
In this case, an anonymous love letter may be just the thing to open up the discussion. Why anonymous though? When things are in such a state of uncertainty, it is always emotionally safer to keep a tiny bit of distance, and at the same time, what could be more intriguing than receiving an anonymous love letter? Even though he will most likely guess it is from you, a letter without a signature invites him to action. He can’t help but want to find out if it really was you! The next step is his. Give him a little time though; it may be a few days before he works up the nerve to solve the mystery.
If he really is shy, he may only indicate his curiosity with a subtle look or gesture. Responding with a big smile should let him know that that mysterious letter really was from you. If you are lucky, he may launch right into a great conversation about how he feels about you! So, what should you write in this mysterious love letter? Resist the temptation to pour your heart out – don’t go completely overboard. Just introduce the idea that you are quite attracted to him, and let him take the next step. Revealing too much, too soon can actually frighten some people, sending them in the opposite direction! That is definitely not what you want. Keep it light, but definitely hint that you really like him and enjoy going out with him. Have patience though; sometimes entering a relationship slowly is the absolute best way!
Now for a slightly different scenario. You’ve had your eye on a really cute boy all year, but he doesn’t even seem to see you. He walks right by you without a glance, busy talking to his friends. You are really starting to fall for him, and would love to let him know how you feel. But, you have been too shy to introduce yourself. Maybe an anonymous letter might do the trick! He’ll be intrigued, wondering who sent it and perhaps then, maybe he will notice you. On the other hand, he may never notice you with or without a letter. A much better solution might be to have a friend introduce you to each other and see what happens!
