Today’s generation know how to tweet, post, and like a message but most of them don’t have any idea on how to write a letter to a friend. Letter writing is an art which has not lost its value and importance in today’s world and you can always find something beautiful when writing a friendship letter or reading one. A best friend is the one with whom we can openly express ourselves, yet nobody has time to pen down a heartfelt and emotional letter to a best friend anymore.
How to Write a Letter to a Close Friend?
Your friend will be delighted with the effort you put into sharing your thoughts with them. So want to write an emotional letter to a best friend?
Follow these tips for a great letter:
1. Set the tone right. Remember that you are writing a letter to your friend, not your school’s headmaster.
2. Request a reply at the end of your letter. Ask about future plans and set a stage for future communications between the two of you.
3. Make your letter interesting to read. Make it funny and exciting by including humorous and adventurous stories and anecdotes. It will surely put a smile on your friend’s face.
4. Ask about their well being as well. Don’t let the letter be around yourself, and try to include your friend in it by asking about his life, family, and work. It will show him how much you care for him.
5. Be honest about the message you want to convey. Describe your real feelings in a clear and precise manner.
A Letter to My Friend, Alice
How are you? I hope you are doing well. I may be a little busy now that I am a married man but overall I am plain happy with my life. Thanks for coming to the wedding, by the way. It meant a lot to me and Sarah.
Though we are in different cities now, I often think of you and the time we spent together. Those were some of the best memories of my life and I will cherish them always. I especially miss our midnight movie watching and binging on all the junk food. Those were the days, eh? I still remember the Rachel haircut you got after watching one of the episodes of Friends. You looked absolutely ridiculous.
I always regale my mama and Sarah with our adventures and they roll on the floor laughing. Not literally, of course, but they just adore you. For instance, I told mama how I accidentally mixed up tapes during one of your dance performances and you ended up doing ballet on Ricky Martin’s The Cup of Life. It had been hilarious remember? Of course, it had stopped being funny when you gave me a black eye after the show.
Oh, Alice, I miss you so much. Every moment spent with was special and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You had helped and supported me when I had been all alone after losing my father to cancer. I still remember the little things you did for me to cheer me up then. I have kept all those funny notes you used to sneak under my door to make me smile. I remember you often and the odd memories bring a smile on my face even on lousiest of my days. You still continue to make me laugh, even from another city.
Now enough about the past and let’s talk about the future. Tell me about you. How’s Timothy and when are wedding bells ringing for you, my friend? I sincerely request you to let him off the hook and say yes to the proposal. The guy adores you. And I know you love him too. I have seen the look you guys shared at my wedding reception and I think you are just delaying something which is absolutely sure to happen.
And how’s work side of your life. Last when I heard from you was when you were trying to open your own bakery in your hometown. How’s it going? I hope you are successful in your endeavor. I am so happy for you. I remember, since we were in college, you had wanted to be a baker. Though I had no idea about baking, I could feel your passion for it. I know it in my heart that you will be the most successful at it. It has been something you wanted for a long time and you are super talented. I can vouch for your blueberry cheesecake if you want.
You know something, Alice. Our friendship is a treasure. Very few people in the world have a friend like you and I will always be grateful to you for choosing me as your friend. I had been an introvert with no friend of my own. And then you happened to me. You, with your chattering and yummy cakes, won me over and I, who couldn’t even say hi to a stranger, spilled out all of my secrets to you. You taught me what friendship is all about. You knew things about me which I wasn’t aware of myself. You saw right through my soul and become a friend to me, whom I can trust with my life. I just want to say thank you.
But don’t think that I am not expecting a reply. Now that you have read my letter, sit down right now and tell me all about your life. I can’t wait to read your reply.
Regards to your mom, Eloise and Timothy.
