Few gifts are as romantic as an old-fashioned love letter. A love letter is a great way to express how much you love someone, and it can be especially nice to receive something in the mail.

But do people still write love letters today? Or are they more likely to use email? Even if the sentiment is the same, is an email quite as romantic?


old-fashioned adj.


Example The old-fashioned TV had knobs on it to change the channel instead of a remote.

sentiment n.


Example I didn't write much in the birthday card, but I think the sentiment was there.

Love Letter is still the best way to express love and feelings, I consider it a very precious gift that any lover can ever give or get.
Its not like emails and new technology it has a special taste.. You can’t put a perfume on an email or keep it in your secrets box.
I remember the first time I get a love letter , it was at school when a charming boy borrowed my book and when he returned it back to me I found that he drew a heart and wrote our first letters in it : ) that was soooo cute.

I believe that everyone has their way to express their feelings to the one they love..it doesn’t matter if it was by mail or e-mail..the most importent thing is that you make it romantic..to show your lover how much you tried to make it perfect for them..how much they really mean to you..not by words!!..by the feelings behind these words..and your lover will certainly appreciate that..I’m telling you!!.. with a little bit effort you can make any way romantice..!!!

The email turned a practical communication tool, but it is so impersonal, specially when we want express feelings. Seending a letter was a lovely process for me. The chose of the paper, the rough versions until write the letter out, the post office and the wait for the answer… I miss it.

It’s been a long time since I sent or received a love letter. But I keep in a special place the letters I received.

My love letter is very short and devoted to my beloved man.

I love you.







Writing a love letter is one of the best sentiment that you could send to someone who loves her/him. Some people think that sending this letter by mail is old-fashioned and it belongs to the past. In my point of view, it is tangible and you are able to transfer your longing and undying feeling to your lover easily. However, technology has changed our communication and has taken a toll our relationship by mail. Try your best to send a love letter to your lover whatever you like because Valentine’s day is around the corner.

Happy Valentine’s day everybody 



I agree that something tangible will really make it happy than anything frilly.

Valentines day  is good time to express your great love to your sweetheart.And its better to see each other and exchange a some present than to send e-mail on this day.Its known well that it takes place once a year and its not romantik to send a simple letter by e-mail.
