Now that almost every 8 houses out of 10 has a computer and internet cnnection, we all tend to speak with each other through messengers and stuffs..the days we had written letters to our friends, relatives and loved ones are now gone to the most part...until about six or seven years ago, even i was writting pages of letters to my friends living abroad and also would waid for the postman everyday afternoon expecting him to deliver a letter into my mailbox...but now neither me nor do they have time to sit down and write so many pages as we wrote, we tend to speak only in short abbreviated sentences thru msngrs...i miss those past days when we spent a quality time for our loved you miss too?

Yes, i feel the post man these days have less to not much work these days as very few peole use the snail mail and everyone depends on internet.On a personal note, i still prefer hand written letters and cards cos it makes me feel special and i can also show pll that they are special to me and not just casual.It also shows that i have time for them and vice versa.I still write letters tho pretty less now a days and i will continue to write

Sending/receiving hand-written letters is really special but it is an art that is slowly disappearing. I used to write long letters in sweet smelling stationaries but since I've been using computer, I got lazy. Most of my family and friends have access to the computer, so I usually just send them an email or chat with them if I have something to say. Honestly, I couldn't remember when the last time I sat down and wrote a letter by hand. Even if I have to send a letter to someone that may have no access to a computer, I usually just type and print it in my pc. It's sad but sometimes when there is advancement in technology, other things get obsolete as a result of it.

I still write letters on a fairly regular basis. I certainly don't write letters any less than I did about ten years ago. I just like it because it feels more personally. It's the same reasons why I prefer a letter to a card.
