How to Write the Perfect Love Letter Poem

Knowledge of HTML is good for your resume but not for your relationship. Writing in digital code has become a mother tongue to our generation and the romance of the written word seems to be falling out of fashion. Don’t let your relationship suffer communication consequences by using TTYL instead of goodbye, I love you. Here are a few tips on how to write the perfect love letter in a digital world:

DO use words

Actions do not speak louder than words when they are pokes on Facebook. Any form of cyber touching is creepy unless clearly invited. Pretty penmanship on paper is ideal but if you still insist on confessing over the internet use words instead of applications to describe your feelings. Texting is impersonal unless you can get creative with it so I recommend a good old fashion email if you’re really not into stationary.

DON’T make it public

This is for both your sakes. Social media networking makes flirting seem easier because you’re safely protected from flat out rejection behind your laptop. But make no mistake that even if nobody comments, they will be LOLing behind your back. Not only would tweeting or blogging about your romantic feelings be embarrassing for you and your crush, nobody else cares about how you feel if you’re not feeling it for them. Send a private message instead.

DO be yourself

Stealing quotes from Jane Austen novels to enhance your romantic verse is a bad idea unless it’s your crush’s favourite author. Use your own best strengths to sell yourself be it humour, intellect or a semi-nude photo. You will be surprised by how charming you really are if you just stay true to yourself.

DON’T instant message

Take time to read it over even if it is 140 characters or less, you don’t want to be a word vomit victim. Typing, tweeting or texting your heart out will need revision from yourself and perhaps a close friend. And whatever you do, write it with a clear head because it’s too easy to go online after a couple martinis and act like Jessica Rabbit when you’re in Minnie Mouse pyjamas – reading your message history the morning after is just as humiliating as the walk of shame.
