You must allow me to tell you how ardently ...

] As to your question, I can only suggest you read Chapter #34 of Pride and Prejudice in order to learn how NOT to do it! However, your sweetheart may thoroughly enjoy you using the opening line. Mr. Darcy starts out great, but rapidly goes downhill!!
] Best Wishes,
I agree with Mark that there are some elements in Darcy's first disastrous proposal, that speak to the heart.But they have to be true! If you have not fought against your feelings you must not say so! However the undercurrent of passion as he says Almost from the first moment I have felt for you ... and I beg you most fervently ... has a nice ring to it(This is perhaps only in the BBC version with Colin Firth which I strongly recommend you to watch.) Also the benefit of hand kisses is not to be exaggerated! My own husband has taken to this habit more regularly of late and it is very much appreciated ;)
I wish you the best of luck.
And if, in the end, you still think you have made a mess of it,then just tell her that you went to all this trouble out of consideration and in order to make her happy!!
