A love letter is a symbol of romance and will endure well beyond a bouquet of red roses. To all the men out there keen to make an impression on someone special thisValentine’s Day, you’ll want to pay close attention to these fool-proof writing tips.


- Always address the letter to the person receiving it and sign off with your name at the end. Any confusion around this part could spell trouble!

- As you put heart to hand, hand to pen and pen to paper, keep your funny bone nextto your heart. Humour is consistently rated as the most attractive quality in the opposite sex.

- Don’t compare yourself to Shakespeare. Poetry and prose come with years ofexperience and let’s face it, she already knows that roses are red and violets are blue.

- If you make a spelling mistake, start again. Twink is not appropriate, especially overtheir name.

- Capture one of your favourite moments together on paper. While she may not have forgotten, she’ll definitely know you were paying attention.
