Are love letters extinct?

Do you remember the last time you received a love letter or poem? No? Me either! I recall when my boyfriend poured his heart out in a love letter and wrote poems about me…on paper. He didn’t tweet me, he didn’t send it on Facebook, and he definitely didn’t put it in a text.

How much romance can you inject into 140 characters, using emoticons, or those oh so annoying abbreviations ? The worst part is that a lot of people probably wouldn’t even know how to write a love letter these days, it’s like a lost art!

AJC’s Jill Vejnoska writes about the decline of the love letter in the digital age that will also appear in this week’s Sunday Paper.

My friends, if you do nothing else on Valentine’s day, you should suspend your normal “electronic” wooing habits and write a love letter. Seriously. It could be a throwback move that invokes feelings of nostalgia. You are pretty much guaranteed bonus points for making the effort.

It takes courage to put your emotions in a “four-paged letter” (remember that Aaliyah song?!) and that is why it is so endearing and heartwarming. Ah, the things we do for love, right? Are we too chicken to be that courageous again?

Have you ever put pen to paper in an effort to express your love for someone? Have you ever received a love letter?

Happy Friday!

Love Letters Extinct??

I can only speak for myself and write things all the time. It may not be 4 pages long, it may not even be more than a few lines, but i’m notorious for little little notes, poems, cards or what nots around for my SO. Matter of fact, I’ve even incorporated this very topic in with my ‘gift’ for this coming Hallmark Holiday.

Now if I were to answer the last time I got a love letter of sorts or anything handwritten, i’d say that was TOO DAYUM long ago. My bf in college used to write poetry and stuff just like me and he’d write me poems or letters. To me there is something about getting a letter or something that had the person actually sit down and put thoughtfulness into what they were wanting to convey. Everyone likes to get mail that doesn’t come with a Balance Due and Pay By Date on it. lol

Morning all –

I was all set to say it’s been a while since I got a love letter, but it hasn’t been. My ex was actually good at that sort of thing… he would leave me flowers and letters outside my garage… and as I was backing out in the morning, I would look over my shoulder and see a white envelope or a bouquet of flowers. Such a nice touch!

But before him, the love letters only existed between me and my HS sweetheart. We would right each other letters in class DAILY. I have two binders full of letters I still keep to this day. Everytime I go on a cleaning spree in my closet, I end up stopping to go through old pics, momentoes and his letters. Don’t get much done when I clean the closet. :lol:

Although we know love letters are more sentimental and heartfelt, do you feel that cards can be comparable to a love letter?

Hallmark and other greeting card companies now provide us with an array of expressive cards for those who maybe creatively challenged, who wants to send a card just because, or just don’t have time to pen that poem for a loved one but it expresses what they want to convey to that special someone. They are the cards that obviously say things that tells you that he/she didn’t randomly select it and there was much thought and time put into getting the right one. It lights up a sparkle in your eye!

@Slim~ Ask a teenager…they will refresh you on the art! I recall my 19yo having one of the infamous notes when she was in middle school…It brought back memories :)

Leggs – Not sure if you’re much of a reggae person but that reminds me of this song i fell in love with. It’s by Sizzla, called “Thank You Mama”. The first time I heard it, i was at a wedding in Orlando. The groom had this song playing when he had the dance with his mom. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place.

Thank u mama for the 9 months you carried me through

The challenge to finding the perfect card is finding one that is the most representative to your situation. A love letter, in my opinion, doesn’t have to be written to the nines and perfect. What is important is the fact that person sat down in an attempt to express what it is they feel.

Be careful with love letters. My high school sweetheart emailed me last week on face book to say that he was cleaning out some old things and came across love letters I wrote to him over 20 years ago. He commented that I should read some of the things I wrote. How embarrassing!!! Who knows what I wrote???

My girlfriend and I left notes for each other depending on who woke up first to leave for work all the time…before we moved into together. Since then I nearly always get up before her so I leave one less often. She did leave before me yesterday (sick day for me) so I woke up to find one for the first time in a while.

Morning All!

I absolutely love writing! Last time I wrote a love letter was some time back when I was in a LDR. I actually ran across one I got back in 94 from Cali dude. He was good at stuff like that.

Leggs, my mother was big on thank you notes and she taught us as well. Whenever I send one out, usually to older people, they are extremely impressed. You would have thought I hung the moon!

This couple that attends my church invited me to a 100 Black Men event, as a date for their cousin that was in town, years ago. The event was Friday, I put the thank you note in the mail the next morning. The post office was especially efficient that day because they got it that same day! They came up to me in church the next day and told me they got it! They said they give away tickets to events all the time, but that I was the ONLY one that had ever written them a thank you note!

I think certain personality types are prone to writing love letters just like there is a certain type that prefers receiving them. One ex girlfriend of mine was very high maintenance in the “love letter/needing tangible expressions of love” department. My current girlfriend on the other hand isn’t big on the mushy trinkets, and finds them to be a bit suffocating. She prefers more face time with me.

Also, I think most relationships tend to naturally evolve past the “love letter” writing stage. As long as you keep doing basic maintenance to show how much you care, things will be fine for the most part.

Morning,

I don’t think love letters are extinct, but I’d venture to say the means of sending thoughts have somewhat advanced. So instead of pen and paper, it’s easier to send a text or ecard or email. My hs bf and I would exchange letters. I haven’t so much since then written any love letters but I will send a “just thinking of you text” or an ecard and insert my own thoughts. Too, I like doing small thoughtful things. Nothing showy or brassy or even expensive but thoughtful. Sometimes, it’s easier for me that way, show how I feel without rather than words.

All these chicks are in denial tho! What they did is simply ignore the symptoms for 7-9 months! It’s soooo frustrating. You’re gonna be tired, emotional, throwing up for 3 quarters of a year but never think to get it checked out til you’re giving birth in your bathroom?

WiseDiva, have I ever told you I appreciate this site. Seriously.
There are so many topics that come across this monitor that has really been a benefit to me. Some gives me insight or an idea on something I should do and some helps me to see what I should stop doing.

I was trying to figure out what I am going to try to do for my husband for Valentine’s Day. Being that I can’t get out to buy something for him nor can we go out for a nice evening I really could not imagine what we could do. My doctor denied my request for me to leave the house for a couple of house so I settled on us not doing anything.

But after reading the entry I have started on a letter that I am going to give him to tell how it’s been having him in my life to the past 10-1/2 years.

I use to leave him little messages on a post-it stuck to the mirror some mornings but life got in the way. I am going to write this letter as it pours out of my heart. No erasing or trying to be “cute” or sexy. Just unfiltered straight from the heart. And this is something I feel texting or emailing would take away from the warmth and personalization of it.

Thanks a mil.

@kimmie ~ my mother told me years ago that my child is the only one of her grandchildren that sends her “thank you” cards. She asked where did I learn to teach her that. I laughed and told her, when you appreciate something someone has done to or for you, you should tell them. It’s that simple! She hugged me. To be honest, that was one of the best hugs I ever received from her. No kidding!!

Raqi – You can do a little small scale In-house scavenger hunt if you’re able to move around a bit. Leave little clues that lead him to the next clue and so on and so forth. Maybe have the love letter be at the last location which would then lead to the final stop. (a cute picnic made of things you already have in the house) It would be funny to see how creative yall can get. A five year old can of vienna sausages, some stale Ritz crackers, a couple slices of molded cheese and two wine glasses of red or purple koolaid. After all those years, I you can never get too old of a sense of humor & being able to laugh with each other. ;-)

I would have felt bad knowing that info and not alerting anyone. Perhaps it was a ploy to get us to panic and buy gas that night. Oh well, I’ve learned.

TMI!!!!!!!! You have been warned!!!

Maybe it’s just that my man has plentiful potent baby batter and/or my fluids flood but the two mixed together there is usually backwash after a good deposit. You know that trickle down that you have to get washcloth for. LOL And I have seen the plentifulness of his man juice when not deposited into me. I ain’t just keep getting pregnant on a fluke. Some gone run out.

She may have done an immediate wipe but I can only imagine over the course of the day there a little seepage that her panties would have properly caught and absorbed. Had she been wearing some. LOL

@Dreams~10:53am….A great suggestion!! Very creative I say :)

Although, penning a poem or an expressive thought is more creative I have grown very fond of cards received from my mom. It’s her way of expressing her love for me. She has never been the type of mom to verbally express it but her love through many cards suffices…it means a lot!

Do you find there’s a huge difference in e-cards as opposed to receiving a card in the mail??

Yes, a card in the mail feels more personable….IMO

@Slim~~ regular is OVER $3…i drive 100miles a day and that just ain’t where it’s at

I am already improvising an alternative for me!!!

Slim, I think hearing the men say they do write or have written letters would have been nice. Letter writing is such a “girl” thing receiving a letter like Mrs. Tazzee stated is extra special coming from your guy.

The hub used to sing to and for me a lot. Not so much now. He sings to the little lady though. She likes to do her little jig while he sings. I am actually not real saddened by him not singing as much for me as he once did because when it does it is very special.

Raqi that reminds me, in addition to sending little love notes, text messages or ecards, I also like to utilize the Voice Notes feature on my phone. For my SO’s birthday, he was out of town. So I went in the bathroom (for the acoustics of course lol) recorded myself singing happy birthday and sent it to him exactly at midnight, the eve of his birthday. I’m not necessarily a SANGER but I can carry a decent tune and I think he appreciated that…..not to mention I left his house in Birthday Havoc while he was gone. Blew up lots of balloons and had them spread all over the floor, put up a birthday banner, a birthday centerpiece, and birthday graffiti everywhere :lol: So when he’d walk in the house back from his trip, that’s what he would come home to. :-p

Life is like a nose, you have to get out what’s inside of it.

The trouble with resisting temptation is it may never come your way again.

Don’t follow in my footsteps because I run into a lot of walls

Gorillas have big nostrils because they have big fingers.

Love is in the air, too bad I cannot fly.

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me

I wish mosquitos would suck fat instead of blood

@PrincessNik ~ you cook cornish hens the same way you would roast a chicken. The exact same way. Just remember you can suck the meat off the leg in one fell swoop….

When I first was pre-qualified for my loan, the interest rate was 4.5. When I got pre-approved, it was 4.625.

Today, I check the rates and it is at 5.25.

(Not a happy chick right now.)

Sexy C, the same thing happened to me, I bought a foreclosure and because the bank was so slow in sending the paperwork back to my bank I missed out on a chance at 4% interest rate

SexyCool, Do you have to have a working contract to lock in a rate? Can it not be done at pre-qualification?

I don’t know how that works for someone shopping the market. I bought this house while renting it so I was able to lock-in a fairly decent rate while the paperwork got in order.

I just sent my guy an email about locking in.
