Being the love month, I’m sure tons of love letters will be sent out. And in these modern times, there are countless of ways to get that sweet message across.
I don’t know about you, but even in the midst of text messaging, e-mail, Facebook, and Skype, I still love (and prefer) receiving old style notes and letters, from simple notes stuck on refrigerator magnets to emotionally compelling letters on stationery (scented or not).
Let me tell you why…
Old-fashioned love letters are handwritten.
The thing about handwritten love letters is that you know that more time and effort is put in its authoring as compared to typewritten ones.
Old-fashioned love letters possess more personality.
The appearance of the penmanship makes you hear the sender’s voice more clearly. Of course, one can add more personality and creativity by using scented stationery (or spraying it with your favorite perfume), placing cutouts of patterns and pictures, or using brightly colored pens! That is if you want to go overboard with the cheesiness.
Old-fashioned love letters can be kept to age.
Unlike messages on your inbox, that remain unchanged from the time you first read it, letters on paper age, turn yellow, and gives you more vivid flashbacks whenever you get back to them.
And this blog entry just gave you an idea of how hopeless romantic I am. Haha! And this also explains why the box of birthday greetings I received last month is loved so much!
