 E-Mails Kill The Romance Of Handwritten Love Letters

As electronic gadgets take over our lives, even the most sacred of human institutions - the art of writing love letters - has met a sorry end. Handwritten love letters are forced to give way to the easier, quicker, yet a lot less romantic electronic love mails.

The immediacy of heartfelt emails or text messages has replaced the intimacy of the handwritten word.

Relationships Australia chief executive Anne Hollonds said that, in some ways, the electronic love mail was more romantic than love letters of the past.

"The interesting thing is the contact is much more frequent so when you're madly in love you might be texting every five minutes, you're constantly checking your phone for a text," the Daily Telegraph quoted Hollonds as saying.

"So you know they're thinking of you right now, and that's a real buzz when you know someone's thinking about you.

"It's very romantic, very sexy to know you are distracting someone like that," she added.

She further said that, unlike treasured love notes, people wouldn't necessarily keep romantic emails in a shoebox.

"People do save their text messages and re-read them if they're travelling or away from the loved one," she added.
