    Smile Simple Past tense or Present perfect tense?

    I would like to ask for help with the correction of tenses.
    I am writing a letter to my friend and I am writing her:

    • I have a great time because I found a great boyfriend. Are the tenses correct?

    Shouldn´t I use:
    I am having a great time because I have found a great boyfriend.

    What tense shoud I use at the beginning:


    • In my letter I will write you./ I am going to write you or/ I am writing to you about the life of teenagers in Slovakia


    Thank you for the help!

    I'm having a great time because I have found (or I found) a great boyfriend.

    In this letter, I'm going to tell you about the life of Slovakian teenagers.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
