Maybe people think it´s an old fashion to write letter to your loved ones or to someone you care or mayeb ot family but I think it isn´t. Have you ever have a time in your life where you´re far away from everyone even your parents and you can´t talk about how you feel ? Maybe letters can give some insecurity because it´s something more delicate I think. I know someone who really cares about letetrs and how they were written and when. Everytime that person receives a letter he\she gets super happy and cherish it :) That person is the person I write about how I feel ... oh well I started to write some time ago and I think I can understand the feeling of having a letter for answer and send the answer to the person if it´s the person who started. I wonder here on mylot does everyoen write letters as a diary or love letters or mayeb just professional letter or normal ones ? Do you send them or you keep it for you. Have you ever felt insecure sending one ? What you think about letters? Are they something special normal or just some boring paper that made you write !

For me,writing letters are the sweetest thing you'll give to your love one aside from the chocolate and flowers. You can see the effort of the sender. I still write letters to my hubby and kids until now even if they have already cellphones. I really find it very sweet especially when you are expressing your feelings...(if you're in love). This is very trending in high school , does it still exist?

since the introduction of email, i started to lose interest in writing letters. i also rarely receive any letters from friends and family members. what i received and sent to friends and family members is email. when i received some letters, they touched my heart and i imagined the effort they put in making one. i respect those people who still do send letters by post.

In the past I wrote a lot snail mail letters every month and I had many penpals from around the world. I loved to write letters. In my letters I told my penpals about my thoughts and my experiences. I was very happy when I found a letter from one of my penpals in the mailbox. I enjoyed hearing about their lives and all the other things that they wrote about. We also exchanged photos, postcards, small souvenirs, cds and other things. Today I don't write snail mail letters anymore. Stamps have become very expensive in my country, and I usually choose send email instead of a snail matter letter, but I sometimes miss the time when I wrote and received many letters

I havne't emailed in ages i just chat online but there are times when i don't see my friends or family online for awhile and i do send letters. I am in a pen pal club and i write letters to them as well and even tel them i don't want to be a friend on fb or whatnot but to write letters snail mail. I mean when i was growing up we didn't have email or internet like today so we used to write letters and tho i use the internet and email i still write letters and prefer that.

I am old enough to remember a time before the internet was invented. Even when the internet came along, it was frowned upon to send an email instead of a letter. We were taught the art of letter writing at school, different letters for different occasions. A hand written letter, that has taken time to compose and then put into an addressed envelope, before posting that letter - will always mean more than a quick email. Nice discussion subject

I think that more people should be trying to write letters in the modern world, because it is something that not a lot of people seem to be taking the time to do anymore. It is a shame, because I think we all love getting them through the door, but at the same time we wouldn't bother to write them to anybody else. I like to write to my relatives at Christmas and on their birthdays rather than just writing on social networking websites or something like that, because I think that it is much more personal, and would therefore mean more to them than a quick message on a website.

Yes, you are right. It has become very rare for people to write letters anymore. When I was in high school, me and my classmates would write letters to each other even though we see each other everyday. It was kind of fun, because we write our secrets there for sometimes we can't talk at school because we're afraid other nosy students would hear us. I still keep some of those letters until now and everytime I look back and read it all over again, they really made me happy.

I agree with you.I too love to write letters rather than type emails.Writing and/or receiving letters is a pleasure that can only be felt.I write letters to my younger sisters who are with their in-laws.When my kids go to other cities,I prefer to write them letters.Emails seem to me to be mechanical,'lifeless'.Letters that you write on papers with your pen are cordial.They bear the touch of your hand.They reveal your love and all other emotions.Emails can't do that.Letters written by you represent you.They are essentially different from the typed letters.

I still write and appreciate letters. I actually get more excited in receiving mails than emails. I think it has something to do with a more personal touch whenever I see the sender's handwriting.

I still write notes for my officemates and people who are near and dear to me. For friends and loved ones far from me, I still do snail mail. Though life is easier now because of technology, still, writing letters gives a different kind of happiness both to the writer and the receiver. It is nostalgic to see a letter envelope with stamps and the smell of ink on paper...

Yes, I still write and would love to receive letters. It is always nice to have something to read, whether the letter came from an old lady from Canada who became my friend. She likes writing me and I guess she loves getting my mails too.

Hand written letters will never go out of fashion. They are like "WORDS that once you've spoken, you cannot take them back". I love to write letters. Words have a magical power and once I sit down to write I feel like the pen just won't stop. I pour my heart out into the paper :)

it may be old fashion but its still nice to write letters sometimes, because not all the time you can just say it out loud or write it here in the internet. Sometimes a hand written letter can still be nice (",) I get that every year for my birthday from my mom, I feel like I have the best mom in the world ever to have a great mom like that. I also write love letters for family during special occasions like birthdays (",) btw, writing letter is not insecurity, as many people like to say. It's one way to express yourself and its good
