I would have returned the letter and asked that the author put some white space in, blank spaces between paragraphs.

Whoever said the letter was pretentious was absolutely correct. Windy.

I think Steve is trying too hard and has perhaps read a few too many romance novels. The writing seems so feminine that, for the first few sentences at least, I thought this was going to be one woman's pining for another.

Steve is just tyring to get in touch with his feminine side. Apparently the readers of Cosmopolitan find that charming.
