    When was the last time you wrote a love letter?

    How long has it been since you've written a full-blown love letter? You know, sat down and wrote something out by hand?

    Do people still do that kind of thing these days? Or is that a forgotten relic?

    My wife keeps all mine. I don't think she ever wrote any for me because I don't have any from her. But then again, I'm not that good of a filer.

    Edit: I don't remember.

    Never.

    I've never had to ask a female out either. Either I'm really lucky, or my standards are 20,000 leagues beneath the sea.

    Maybe we should take a poll on that one.

    Every morning when I get to work, I write my Wife an email to her place of employment, with all the news of new Love found overnight with her and other fine things to say to your Wife.

    The answer would be, every day.

    9 years ago....that one was supposed to be given with a ring, but like most of my life, it took a strange twist and things didn't happen as planned.

    It was actually a Petrarchan Sonnet, something I'm actually really good at making...I've only made two so far, one was delivered to the same person as above on the two year mark of us dating.

    Ronald Reagan penned some legendary love letters to Nancy Reagan over the years. They had quite a thing going with each other.

    an actuall letter? 1992, my senior summer of high school. To a girl who wasn't even close to deserveing the effort. Unfortunately, every girl since has felt the wrath of that relationship, cause I've never written one since. I will admit though, it will make recognizing the girl i'm gonna marry very easy. If someone ever makes me feel that strongly again to write one, i'll know she's the one.

    I believe that was the origin of the "Just say No" campaign.

    ohh gosh, im laughing here, the last time i actually wrote a love poem to my hubby, it was a few months after we met, it was the "touching feet" poem ( no, i still dont like my food touching but im OK with feet touching )
    we used to lay in bed and I liked our feet to gently touch, so i wrote a whole poem about it
    wow, i had almost forgotten this! he still has it somewhere, I remember years ago we had this huge fight, so he got out the touching feet poem!

    I could be wrong, but I don't think the kind of love letters being referenced here include phrases such as "heaping scoops of quivering flesh," "they defied gravity" or "I never thought I'd writing to the Forum, but . . . ."

    Yes, lots of people used to do it. I take it not much any more? What takes its place now? Text messaging?

    Velo, if people don't write love letters anymore, it's probably just a symptom of a larger issue: People don't write physical letters at all anymore, love or not. Letter-writing seems to be something of a lost art these days Email is too informal and ruined by spam to matter or to be much of a parallel. Instant messaging and the telephone are instantaneous, so there's no composing going on. I guess the closest thing these days would be the posts that people put on their personal web sites (or "b**g" as the media has seen fit to rename them), except those tend to be letters to no one.

    I do agree, though, that it is a shame.
