Internet penetration has replaced letters with e mails . But handwritten or typed and hand signatured letters are unique . They carriy the feelings of the hearts in pure forms . Do you feel like I do ? Do you write letters now a days?

Hi friend, I am not writing letters now a days.I will send it through email.See friend in our country every child is having an email address of his or her own and they know how to operate the computer,so they is no need for me to post a letter and also through net the information will be passed within fraction of minutes and because of this everyone are send it in the form of software copy.I think hand written letters are stopped in most of the country i suppose.Of course they are some places even posting of letters are being sent.Let us hope in near future they would also stop posting of letters and send information through net itself......... Have a nice day....

In my country letter is still in vogue albeit with much less frequency. Old fashioned but nostalgic and real , isn't it ?

I used to love writing letters, somtimes I write ltters when a computer is not made available to me. I dont have a problem with handwritten materials. Some people still think it looks tacky to hand address an an envelope. That is silly I think. I love to see hand written materials. Some people have such beautiful handwritings. I hope they use that God-given gift.

I still write a letter to some friends of mine but my friends who have email i send email to them often. I use writing letters if i need to send something in Philippines who doesnt have any internet only post. And i used also writing if i am going to send a card. For me letter in the post is make me more excited that email.Becouse i feel like they put more effort of doing it than email.But i dont disagree about writing email i like it also it easy and handy..Anytime they can read it.And you can get answer so fast than post...But i just find letter in the post is so romantic hahaha Have a nice day ..TC Greetings from Che!

Yes, you are exactly right, and I feel like you do too. Most of my communications are now by emails. I seldom send hand written letters these days. When I have some ting I need to discuss , if possible, I give the person a phone call. Internet has taken over all the feelings !!

I send more e-mail than I do letters. I did send a pile of wedding invitations a ew weeks ago with handwritten addresses on them, and I send Christmas cards in December, but besides that I don't do that much letter-writing.

Yes, I still write letters. There's something unique and special when you get a handwritten letter. My boyfriend and I write letters to each other in addition to chatting online and talking on the phone. For me, when I see the letter in the mail, my heart feels like its about to burst with joy. I feel like I am truly loved and blessed.

Because of the technology, an SMS or an e-mail is the easiest way to contact and converse with people who lives far away. I don`t get to write handwritten letters anymore but because you've posted such interesting question, now I kind of miss the handwritten type of letters. Every letter and punctuation mark written, every erasure made for a typographical error makes the letter unique.

I miss writing letters SO MUCH! I always wrote to all my friends and family all the time...seldom did I get one back, but I still wrote! I wrote BOOKS - I mean pages and pages! Back then postage was cheaper, today I'd have to probably just send it PM for $5! Okay, I exaggerate just a bit, 10-15 notebook pages was the norm. NOw that I think about, I didn't have the eventful life, so I dont know what in the world I wrote about but I did. I sure miss it. Today tho, I write to my grand daughter 8 years old and she live in same city and I see her every other week, but the weeks I don't see her she is with her dad (divorce thing) and I always drop a letter to her on Tuesday and include coloring page or work sheet of some kind - this week I enclosed a self addressed and stamped envelope and asked her to write to me! And I always just figured she threw them away - until I read a page she wrote for an assignment for her 2nd grade class - she had to write about a personal hero - I WAS HER HERO! I couldn't believe it, I knew we had a great relationgship, but hero? And in the page she wrote one reason why was cause I write letters to her when she is at her dad's house and she keeps them all in a special box on her dresser. Yep, it pays to write - they like getting them! Makes an impression and although they don't write back, I at least hope, I stayed in their minds with all my ramlings and such! Thank God for Kids!!!

I use to write letters in my first relationship and it made it real interesting. It was kinda a long distance thing so I would write about things going on and about myself and I think he got to know me mostly from that since we didn't see each other much. At first I was hesitant about doing it, like saying I am not good at writing and stuff but I started and I would give him a bunch to him when I saw him. he write poems so I had something to look forward to also. After a while, I started to enjoy it until I moved further away, I used the easy way out which is email. But later in life if we were still together we would have something to look back on that was special between us cause not couple do it now a days.

Hello friend, I still write letters, but I usually type them and then hand sign them. I use email to send jokes, funnies, etc. I do text my best friend on a daily basis, but that's because we are both too busy to call each other. but at birthday's, Christmas, Anniversaries, and if there is a friend or a relative I don't get to see often, I type letters to send. They are a lot more personal. My handwriting is aweful, so I choose to type. I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend.
