When you and your BF are far away from each other, you don’t have the chance to declare your love as often as you’d want. Since you can’t talk to him in person all the time, you want to put your feelings into words and you got the idea to write a love letter to long distance boyfriend.

How amazing is that! Besides, it is much better than putting a love song on his social media wall or sending him a bunch of love emojis on WhatsApp. A handwritten long distance love letter is way more personal and it will definitely knock him off his feet.

If it’s his birthday, Valentine’s day, or your anniversary and you’re out of gift ideas- I assure you that this will be the best gift he’ll ever receive. Just seeing an envelope with your name on it will make his heart skip a beat.

But this doesn’t mean that you have to wait for a special occasion to write your man a letter. In fact, you’ll probably surprise your loved one even more if you send it just because.

You can spice things up by putting a photo of you in the envelope or adding an Open When Card (you tell him when to open the letter- Open when you miss me, Open when it’s your birthday, Open when we get into a fight, Open when you’re having a hard day…).

The Ultimate List Of Love Letters To Long Distance Boyfriend

So, if you dig this idea but you’re not sure about how to pen your feelings down- I’ve got you covered. Here are some sample love letters that will make him cry his eyes out.

#1 Letter To Long Distance Boyfriend

pensive woman sitting at homeTo my Sweet Love,

Darling, I know we’re so far apart right now, but I want you to know that I feel your closeness now more than I ever have before.

You know how they say that distance makes the heart grow fonder? Well, I guess they’re right.

Because I love you now more than ever.

At first, I know I was a little hesitant about this whole long-distance thing, and I wasn’t sure if we could make it work.

But now, I feel so happy that I let you talk me into this because this long-distance relationship has been the best thing in my life by far. I want you to know that I think about you all the time.

I think about you the moment I wake up because for a split second I expect to see your face right next to mine, but when I turn around I realize that you’re not there.

And at that moment my heart sinks a little and I get teary-eyed. But then I remember the promise we made to each other and I choose to be strong. For you, for me, and for our relationship.

I have to admit I do have my fair share of bad days. There are days when I fall on hard times and I don’t think I can do this.

There are days where all I want to do is leave this all behind me, catch the first plane to you, and enjoy you more than I ever could over Skype, FaceTime, or WhatsApp.

But then I get myself together and realize how foolish that would be. After all, this is not forever.

You’re going to come back and we’re going to be just as happy as we were back in high school.

Remember how we would write each other those little love notes pretending like we knew what long-distance love was?

I’d write you those cute love messages with love quotes every time we weren’t in class together.

We’d hang out during recess, after school, and every single night, never getting bored of each other.

Do you ever miss those days?

We were just two young kids, crazy in love, writing each other silly long-distance love letters, pretending to be worlds apart when we were just a few steps away from each other.

If only we knew then what we know now. Things really do have a funny way of working out.a woman sitting at a table drinking coffee and writing a letterI want to thank you for showing me that no distance can separate a love this strong.

I truly feel blessed to be by your side, even if we are physically apart for now. I mean, what is distance anyway?

You’re only a phone call away and our constant chains of text messages get the job done that I barely even realize you’re not there half the time!

I feel you with me all the time – I’ve never felt that way with anyone else.

I’m no stranger to long-distance love, but it never really worked out for me in the past. And now I know why – because none of them were you!

It takes a real man to be able to make a woman feel so damn loved even when he’s a thousand miles away. And baby, you make me feel loved like I never knew possible!

I hope you know how much I love you. I hope you never question my loyalty because I’d never do anything to jeopardize what we have. You’re too precious to me.

After all those bums I used to date, I finally know what it feels like to be with a man who can take care of his woman.

I finally feel as loved as I should’ve felt a long time ago. But thank God it never worked out in the past because you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

And I’d gladly go through all the heartbreak again if it would lead me back to you!

I will love you through thick and thin, through all of our ups and downs, on the days you don’t love yourself.

I’ll cherish you when you’re here and even more so when you’re away.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from our long-distance relationship, it’s that once you find something worth fighting for, you never let it go.the woman sits and writes a letterAnd that is my promise to you. I won’t let you go no matter how challenging it gets.

I won’t let you go when this distance thing becomes too much to handle.

I can’t promise that I won’t shed a tear every now and then, because I miss you like crazy!

But knowing that every single day I’m a day closer to seeing you is what helps me push forward.

And lastly, I want to say thank you for making me believe in true love again.

You know all about my past misfortunes and heartbreaks. You know how hard it was for me to let my walls down again. And you were so patient and delicate with me.

You never pressured me. You never made me feel like I wasn’t worth the wait.

You were there and you made me feel like love was still an option for me, and you’ve kept on proving it ever since.

I’ve never met a man quite as phenomenal as you, my love. I’ve never really known how deeply one can be loved until you showed me all I was missing.

And now, I feel more in love with a man who’s hundreds of miles away than I ever did with someone who was right beside me. And that says something.

So now, even though we’re worlds apart, I’m writing you this love letter as a token of my everlasting love.

We may not be able to kiss each other, hold each other, or be each other’s rock in person for the time being.

But when you know that a person’s there for you regardless of the miles separating you, then you’re certain you’ve found something special.

And you, my sweet love, are the most special person I’ve ever let into my life.

I will love you until the sun ceases to shine and the birds have no song.

Now and forever,

Your One And Only

#2 Letter To Long Distance Boyfriend

woman looking at herself in the mirrorHey you,

You know I’m not a romantic type so I bet this is the last thing you expected from me. But here I am, writing you a love letter.

That’s right- just like in those old romantic movies I usually roll my eyes on. Well, I guess love changes us all. At least, it changed me.

It’s been exactly 176 days, 11 hours, and 17 minutes since I last hugged you. But hey, who’s counting?

During that time, we exchanged a couple of thousand text messages. And all of them were great but I’m pretty sick and tired of not being able to pour my heart out to you the way I would want it to.

Besides, there is something so graceful and sophisticated in a real letter.

So I guess I am a hopeless romantic, after all. I’m picturing you, opening the mailbox, expecting to find another electricity bill or something like that.

But there it is, a little cute envelope with your name on it, calling you to open it. You better not think twice about who send it to you! Lol!

No, the paper isn’t all wet because of my tears- it’s my perfume. I know we can’t be next to each other and that’s why I sprayed it all over the entire letter- so you could have a trace of me miles away.

You must be wondering if I have something important to tell you. Is it something I don’t have the courage to tell you in person so I decided to write you this love note?

Don’t worry- it’s nothing like that. I’m just writing to tell you that you’re the love of my life. I know you know that but hey, it can’t hurt to hear it again, can it?

I have to admit it: there are days when I’m frightened to death that we won’t make it. I get an anxiety attack just by thinking that this damn distance will manage to do us apart.a beautiful woman with a hat on her head sits on the wall and writes a letterThen, I try to picture my life without you for just a second. And that moment alone is enough for me to be certain in one thing: you and I will spend eternity together.

You know how I know? Because it’s impossible for me to see my future without you by my side.

I don’t care how physically apart we are- what matters is that our hearts are always near. I don’t exist without you. You give my life meaning and our final union is the only thing I’m looking forward to.

In fact, it’s pretty much the only thing that’s keeping me alive. The only thing that gives me what it takes to make it through all the bad days, through all the storms and hardships. The only thing that’s keeping my head above the surface.

The point is that I would drown if I didn’t have you. You’re the silver lining to my every cloud and the light to all of my darkest tunnels.

They say that your loved ones are usually your weaknesses. But that’s not how things roll when it comes to us.

On contrary, you’re my biggest strength. You’re the motivation that helps me wake up every morning. In fact, I would probably never fall asleep if I weren’t picturing the two of us finally together.

It’s like I’m looking at us right now, as we speak. I imagine us with two kids, a golden retriever, a white-fenced house, and the whole package- you know, just like in the movies.

But even if nothing of that turns into reality, I want you to know one thing- you alone would be more than enough for me. Yes, I want to be the mother of your kids and I live for the day when we’ll get married and buy a house together.

Until then, I have to settle for the empty side of my bad every night. I have to settle for your good morning and good night texts and for watching your handsome face on Skype or FaceTime.

Nevertheless, what matters the most is having you by my side- this way or another. And I really do hope that we will be next to each other soon.

I’m not talking about weekends or visits. I’m talking about really being next to each other.

I hope that our happily ever after is close and that I won’t have to wait for eternity until it becomes real life and not just my dream.

In fact, I don’t only hope- I’m sure in us like I’ve never been sure about anything in my life so far. Some people keep telling me not to expect too much because long-distance romances don’t always end well.

I’ve even heard comments that I’m wasting precious years of my youth waiting for you. But I know that’s not true.the woman writes a letterI know what we have is real. I know this is true love and nobody can change my mind.

I don’t trust you because of your promises only. I don’t trust you because of everything you do for me.

I have no doubts about you because I feel that you love me. I feel it even when we’re physically apart and even when there is an ocean between us.

I feel it with every inch of my being and with every atom of my body. I feel it because you’re my second half and my soulmate. And that’s how I know you’ll be my forever person, as well.

This might sound silly but every time I see a repeating sequence of numbers, I know that’s you thinking of me. And I smile because I know that you also know.

Isn’t that strange? If someone told me a few years ago that it’s possible to be this connected with the person you only see in person a few times a year, I wouldn’t believe them.

But here we are, proving that miracles do exist. Proving that we’re stronger than all the obstacles on our way and proving that we’re invincible.

Please, let’s just stay that way. I’m not asking anything from life besides that- for our relationship to remain perfect as it is. And of course, to spend the rest of my mornings waking up next to you.

I love you and I always will- please don’t ever forget that.

#3 Letter To Long Distance Boyfriend On His Birthday

happy woman in autumnI don’t know when exactly you’ll get this but please, open when the clock strikes midnight on your birthday. (write this on the envelope!)

To my special person on his special day,

Don’t worry- I haven’t run out of gift ideas. Your birthday present is on its way (or maybe it already arrived), so see this letter as a long birthday card.

Before I wish you a happy birthday, I want to do a little reflection on our beautiful love story.

You don’t have to believe me but from the first time I saw you, I knew you’d make a difference in my life. And that’s exactly what you did: you rocked my world from across the world.

That’s why I celebrate your birthday as my day as well. I celebrate the day you were born because, without you, nothing would be the same in my life either.

I am so sad that I can’t be next to you on this special day. It breaks my heart not being able to throw you a real birthday surprise or watch you blow candles on your birthday cake.

I want to cry every time I imagine you waking up alone, in a cold bed on your birthday morning. Please, don’t let my absence ruin your big day. I’m begging you to have a blast with your friends and to enjoy your birthday as much as you can.

I can promise you this: it’s your last birthday without me. This time, next year, all of our plans will come through and we’ll finally be forever together.

You’ll watch the clock strike midnight holding my hand. I’ll give you the juiciest kiss ever, I’ll bring you a birthday breakfast in bed and we’ll spend the entire day together, haunting for your surprises.

You know I’d give anything to make all of that happen this year as well but sadly, it can’t be done. I would cry my eyes out if it would do me any good but it is what it is- for now. The only thing that’s keeping me alive is hope that soon, all of this will be over.

Whenever I miss you (which is basically every second of every day), I grab one of your old shirts and sleep in them. I try not to wash them as long as possible, so I can feel your scent.

Whenever I miss you, I remember how far we’ve come and our journey puts a smile back on my face. I bet you didn’t forget the two of us a few years ago.

We were basically a couple of teenagers who didn’t have a clue about what they were doing with their lives. We were frightened and we both had our share of doubts that this would never work.a beautiful woman with long blonde hair writes a letterOh boy, how wrong we were! We had no idea how these long distance relationships even roll. But we knew one thing: that we loved each other.

Some might call us brave. Nevertheless, I just know that we had faith in each other. I guess we both knew we were meant to be from that first day on.

That’s how it goes with soulmates- you recognize each other. And that’s exactly what happened to us: we clicked and we bonded.

Here are we are, years from that moment- still together. Yes, these years without you have been stretching so long.

But I’m sure about one thing: each day was worth it because it brought us together to our final goal. Each tear, each “I miss you” love message, every time we had to fall asleep alone, every event we had to attend without our plus ones, all the hardships… it was all worth it.

It wasn’t easy- I’ll be honest with you. I had my ups and downs. There were days when I wanted to leave everything behind and catch the first plane that would lead me straight in your arms.

Times when I was angry at you for not being close to me every time I had the urge to kiss you. Times when I was dying of jealousy just by seeing my friends doing seemingly ordinary things with their boyfriends such as holding hands, spending a random day on a beach, or going shopping.

All those New Years, anniversaries, Christmases, and other big dates we had to spend apart. It breaks my heart just remembering it.

All those Happy Birthday songs I had to sing to you over the phone, all those times you weren’t here to hold me when I needed them most, and all those text emojis that should have been real kisses. All that distance…

Nevertheless, I’m not sorry- not even a bit. I don’t see these years as wasted.

Instead, I think that they’ve only made our love more powerful. I think I care for you this deeply partially because I know how it feels to live without you.

As much as this distance sucks, I guess it brought something good along. Ironically, even though we’re physically apart most of the time, exactly that situation is what brought us spiritually closer.a woman with long brown hair sits in an armchair and writes a letterI appreciate your presence because I’m constantly aware of your absence. I never thought of taking you for granted because even when we’re together, I know it’s not permanent.

So, when we finally unite, I promise you one thing: I won’t spend a minute away from you. I’ll be the clingiest girlfriend you could ever imagine. And I’m not even ashamed to admit it.

I’ll spoil you and every day will feel like it’s your birthday.

I miss you all the time but today, I miss you more than ever. And I live for the day when I won’t have to miss you anymore.

I love you to bits, now, forever, and always. Have the happiest birthday ever!

#4 Thank You Letter To My Long Distance Boyfriend

a woman sits by a tree and writes a letterTo my one and only,

I tell you that I love you all the time but I can’t remember what was the last time I told you one simple thanks. It’s not your birthday, our anniversary, or Valentine’s day but I just want you to know how much I appreciate everything you’re doing for me.

I would be nothing without you. You’re my rock and my biggest support.

I won’t lie- both of us know that sometimes, I can be weak. I tend to lose hope and fall into desperation quite easily. But when that happens, it’s enough for me to see your name on my phone screen.

And just like that- in a blink of an eye, all of my anxious thoughts go away. Just hearing your voice is enough for me to feel calm and more powerful than ever.

You’re the one who brought us here. You’re the one who kept convincing me that we had what it took to overcome all the obstacles on the way.

The one who kept promising that everything would be alright and that we can get out of this LDR alive.

Well, guess what- you were right all along. The truth is that we still haven’t beaten this distance but we’re almost there.

We’ve never been closer to our goal and happy ending. And that’s all because of you.

So thank you for that. Thank you for being the best boyfriend in the world.

Thank you for putting up with me from the first day of our LDR. I know that sometimes, I can be a real pain in the ass.

I know that handling me is not a piece of cake. But somehow, you found a way to do it.

You found a way to fight with my demons and to chase all of them away. You find a way to struggle with my darkness and to get me out of it.

You found a way to fight all of my fears away.

So, thank you for being my savior. Yes, you’re not just my BF- you’re also my own personal superman.

But I have to admit you something- I still haven’t gotten one fear- the biggest of them all. I’m still dead scared of losing you.a beautiful woman with long brown hair tied in a ponytail writes a letter at the tableDon’t get me wrong: it’s not that I feel this way because of something you do. Your actions don’t make me insecure in any way possible.

It’s just that I couldn’t stand the fact of having to go through life alone. Yes, you’re not here next to me all the time but just knowing that you and I sleep under the same sky every night gives me comfort.

I think I would literally die if I didn’t have the chance to call you whenever I’m upset or hurt. You’re the only one who gives me the tranquillity I desperately need whenever I feel like I’m about to lose my mind.

Thank you for being my best friend. You know, when I tell everyone that you and I are BFFs, I really do mean it.

Yes, I have my girlfriends but nobody can compete with you. You have this amazing ability to be my lover and my best friend at the same time and that’s something no man before you could ever do.

You’re there to hear me out. Come on, how many nights have you spent on the phone, listening to me sob uncontrollably for some silly thing that didn’t even matter in the morning?

But you never told me to back off. You’ve never accused me of being a drama queen (even when that was the least you could call me).

You’ve never been too busy or too tired to deal with my issues.

Instead, you’ve always been there. Even though you couldn’t hold my hand, you were to console me with your soothing voice.

There to share silence with me, there to listen to my endless problems, there to wipe my tears away, and there to put a smile back on my face.

And that’s exactly what makes you my person and my life partner.

Thank you for showering me with positivity every time I’m down. You’re the one who turned me into the most optimistic girl ever.

Because every time I thought there was no way out, you showed me the light. Every time I was convinced that everything was lost, you proved me differently.

Thank you for tearing down the walls around my heart. For healing all of my deeply rooted traumas and for showing me that true love does exist.the woman sits drinking coffee and writing a letterThank you for showing me that not all men are the same and for bringing back my faith in love. Thank you for proving to me that real gentlemen are not extinct species and that princes on white horses really do exist.

Most of all, thank you for accepting me just the way I am. Thank you for respecting me as a person and as a woman.

Thank you for never asking me to change and for loving all of my imperfections (and we both know there is plenty of them).

Thank you for showing me that miles are nothing and that, when love is real, even the greatest distance can be bridged.

Thank you for giving me the most beautiful love story ever.

Thank you for making me happy. Thank you for loving me and for allowing me to love you. Thank you for teaching me what love is.

Thank you for showing me that I am lovable and for teaching me how to love myself– I really needed that more than anything. Thank you for convincing me that I’m enough just the way I am.

Thank you for showing me my worth. Hey, if a guy thinks I’m valuable enough to love me from this much distance, that’s got to mean something, doesn’t it?

My heart beats for you only. You’re the love of my life and I couldn’t be more grateful for that. Despite all the space between us, I love you more and more with every day that comes.

To Wrap Up:

Whichever letter to long distance boyfriend you choose- you won’t go wrong. Don’t worry about not writing it by yourself- you can always add an inside joke or something like that to make it more personalized.

Trust me: it’s your loving intention that counts.
