A handwritten letter on parchment is way more romantic than any email.
Most people would probably agree with that assessment. After all, parchment is the best medium for expressing romantic thoughts and feelings.
“I know it is unwise, irrational, and that you may hate it — on the other hand you may not — and I will love it…. After all of these years — you should give me a more loving answer than that. Why don’t you just say yes?”
That seems rather blunt and not very romantic. Yet that is a love letter, written by hand – longhand no less – in 1963 by JFK.
Truth is, romantic feelings are not enhanced by the medium you use. Romantic feelings can be successfully conveyed in a handwritten note, in an email or through voicemail.
It all depends on you.
If your sweetheart prefers being romanced with words, it’s worth learning to express your thoughts and feelings through words.
Use these three ingredients and you can fashion an excellent romantic letter, email or voicemail.
- Create a single sentence that sums up what you want to put into words. Is there a specific feeling you want to convey to your sweetheart? Is there a specific incident which kindled your desire to express this thought? Say it in 25 words or less?
- Now expand the sentence with words which express your emotions towards your sweetheart.
- Take action. Put pen to paper, fingers to keyboard or voice to phone and create the message.
Your sweetheart will treasure your words. Don’t be surprised if your sweetheart keeps a copy of the letter, email or voicemail and returns to these treasured sentiments, reliving its first time reading.
The key to remember is it’s not the medium that’s important. It truly is the expressed thought that counts. Robert
