I have always loved letters, even as a troubled teen I still found time to write letters to my then best friend talking about latest crushes and cliquey gossip. I even wrote a letter to my first boyfriend telling him how much I cared about him- I just find these things easier to put into writing then to say it out loud. Letters give me time to construct thoughts rather than blurt them out during a conversation.
So I was really pleased to find the love letter to still be alive and well (albeit in a new modern guise) through the website: http://letterstocrushes.com/ (which, by the way, I found through a fellow blogger who also appreciated the notion!)
Here are some letters I have a crush on (har har)
i like when we sit next to each other and your leg fits perfectly against mine. i like when our feet bump and we don’t apologize. i like this comfort. i like this closeness. i like you.
I didn’t think lending pens was special until you lent me yours.
Wanna be awkward, together?
— Awkward girl'
— shy girl'
1.You’re adorable (especially with your glasses)
2.Don’t be jealous. They don’t have what you have.
3.Could you play me a song?
4.Maybe we can share a rain walk someday. Or a sunset.
5.I think I like you.
Love it. With the thought of letters on the brain I wanna write a few quickies to those I love;
You have changed my luck from the moment I met you, I cannot thank you enough for giving me the courage to love. I hate to see your eyes turn sad and only hope I can make them smile today and for years to come. I love you more than this letter can say and hope you know I wanna be your monkey head forever.
You have become my best friend and the only one to put up with my tough love techniques.... I know things look hazy and grey now but I promise you it won't turn out like that. You will pick yourself up and dust off the dickheads in your life and go on cleansed and happy. You will see the world again and meet someone who lifts you rather than drags you under. (Love you slag bag).
(Mum and Dad)
You are too nice for your own good, and I'm sorry for everything that's happening at the moment. I hope you never doubt your skills as parents as I haven't met better (and I've met em all!!). I only hope the future changes for all of us.
I miss each one of you today, but am so happy you are all living your dreams. I know I don't see you as much as I should, but I also know what we have as a group runs deeper than that. You have all enlightened me in different ways and I can't wait for us to grow into old cat ladies together.
