Love letters are quite romantic, aren't they? I received love letters when I was 16 years old, then during my college years, and when I was married from my husband. The first time I received a love letter, I just smiled. However, I was waiting for him to talk with me, but he never did. I think that it is better if one will put to action what one has written. Personal communication is more important, isn't it? What do you thinks of love letters?

Oh I love to write and receive a love letter as well. I can't remember my first love letter but recently I got a love letter from my husband. That's what makes me love him so much. With all the technologies around, he still finds way to be traditionally romantic. He has an ugly handwritting but I love looking at it and reading it again and again.

My husband and I were in a long distance relationship and back then we didn't have emails and the pc was not something that everyone can own and cyber cafes didn't exist so we wrote to each other very often. I think love letters are romantic and whenever my husband and I have a misunderstanding, I will take out the letters and relive the past and then I would feel the love again. Love letters can also be a legacy to be passed down to the next generation. Nowadays, young people don't write letters anymore. They would email, skype or text. Writing love letters is an activity that will soon be phased out.

Since I learned to love writing, it has been my form of expression of how I feel to somebody- whether to a friend or boyfriend. I feel free telling how I feel by writing it. But there was one time in College that when I gave a letter to my boyfriend (now my husband), he just suddenly blurted out that he'd rather hear me say things that I want to tell him rather than keep on reading my letters. I tried to change but, still, I feel comfortable writing.

I also received a love letter during my high school days and same with you the one who gave me that love letter had never got the chance to tell his feelings with me personally. I would appreciate if he tells me that. But of course, receiving letters like that is so much overwhelming and very romantic. My present boyfriend now is not that fond in giving love letters with me but he is very vocal in telling me that he loves me and I'm that important with him. That would do anyway.

I never got them from my ex husband. But my first boyfriend used to write me poems all the time. Most the poems were about love. I loved getting those. Funny thing he now is the governor of a state here in Mexico. I knew he was smart but...

Oh I remembered when I first received a love letter. It was back in high school.Back then, of course when you are young, you would feel, embarrassed and a bit shy with a little excitement to see whose it from. :) That's how I felt. Oh, my young love days. :) LoL! Now as I look back at it, it seems kind of cute. Thinking of the courage guys must've had to mustered just to write and even actually give it to the crushes. :) Nowadays, there's only but a few people who do love letters, given this modern age that we have.

Oh yes, i like receiving love letters. I also got a lot from my past boyfriends when i was in my single days. There was one seminarian boyfriend whose love letters i like so much. After the summer vacation he would go back to the seminary and he would send me love letters. My friends and i are so happy reading his love letters for me. As to my husband, he didn't send me love letters. He just gave me some pictures of the two of us with dedications of love on the back. Of course, those love letters has to be put into action, my friend.

I think it depends in what kind of person you are and what type of guy your partner is. For me, as much as i love hearing from the person that he loves me, I also love receiving love letters since writing love letter is not just about writing a letter. It also takes effort. Imagine receiving a love letter from a person who doesn't usually write corny stuff. Isn't that sweet? As he did it just for the sake of his love for you. Putting it in action is another thing. But for a shy person, it's difficult to do so.

My fiance cneverwrite love letters to me, but i do write to him, he does appreciate me writting to him, but i dont know why he doesnt seem to worry on not writing back, he doesnt like phone calls and internet chats too. He said he likes the old times when no mobile phqones and internet available and they got to communicate through mail and not every minute. He also said he wants to show his actions, his a man of action.I do appreciate that he shows his sincerety through his action not on his words. When we started our relationship we never said i love you for several months and when we got to see each other he then proposed his love for me. We have a long distance reldationship and communication is really important, but we do prefer showing our actions when we see each other ot on the phone or internet, words are sometimes mis understood.

Letters were quite popular before when communications was still not so advanced like we have today. Sending letters to someone special, would mean you care for that person, what one can not put to action is instead put to meaningful words. It's our way to to tell our thoughts or what we feel for someone we can not tell personally . My wife still have my letters when I was still courting her, safely filed in a folder. Sometimes she read it in front of me and we both have a good laugh after reading some of it.

That's a good thing to remember, I had a box full of love letters during High School and college years. But now, no one tend to do it. It is transcribed and send it through email. The feeling is different, before there is an excitement to wait Mr. Postman to come.

Love letter is mostly used by teenagers, mostly in high school years and early college. I still remember when I was in high school, the first love letter I received came from our class valedictorian. I was then in a second year high school. After I read that letter, made me nervous to look at him. LOL! It is always romantic and sweet if somebody give me love letter, I think... Sounds corny by sweet.

I think love letters are very sweet when coming from the person you're currently in a relationship with. I do not like getting them from someone who is an admirer. While the gesture is still sweet I like a man to be confident enough to come up and talk to me. Also especially when I was younger I'd always question whether it was some sort of joke. Kids always do messed up things like that.

It is said that love letter are so romantic than text msgs.older generation says that they could inject their feelings to that paper which they write their love letters those days.:) Yes even i think love letters must be a romantic more than the ways lovers communicate each other such as phone calls,text msgs and email etc...

love letter is one way to express what the person feel its not just a piece of paper but its a paper where you put your emotion your feeling its a collection of emotion few people use to send love letter than txting they express what they feel in letter than personal or using phone

The use of love letters is an easier way for boys that are shy to convey their interest in a girl. As for me, If you love a girl walk up to her and tell her you love her.

Love letters convey one's feelings when you are not in front of your loved ones. When I could not talk to my boyfriend during my school days, I used to write love letters. Even he did. But if you meet him regularly, both of you must spend quality time together.
