My daughter wrote me a hand written letter and mailed it to me for father's day. Best present I ever got.

Sometimes we will let emotions flow through the pen to paper, saying what we would never say in any other medium.

The last letter I wrote was to my uncle, several weeks before he died.
I knew he didn't have much time left, and I wanted him to know what he
meant to me.
Sure, texting, calling, and emailing, are much faster and easier, but actually
taking the time to put pen to paper and literally spell out the words you're
choosing to convey whatever feelings you're trying to express, is FAR more
intimate and indicative of the depth of regard you have for the recipient.

This. A thousand times, this.

A heart to heart letter is a segway to more meaningful relationship is your conclusions?

@azzow2 No, not at all. I have no particular "conclusion" on this topic.
It really depends entirely on the writer and receiver.
I'm in my mid-50s. I've received, and written, lots of letters. Not all of them helped create more meaningful relationships.
Just remember, people used to hand-write chain letters.

People are always genuinely impressed by a hand written letter. It never fails and it’s so easy.

I occasionally have to physically put stuff in an envelope and address it at work, but not often. I can't think of the last time I had wrote a letter or mailed something from home.

I check my apartment mailbox every Friday, then I take the grocery flyers out of it and throw them away. Mail is archaic. I have grocery apps. Everything I pay for is online. Chat and similar forums replace letter writing.

@Jonado I got tired of taking junk mail out of my mailbox every day, so now I only check the box about once a week, or when I carry the trashcans to the curb. Today I checked because I was expecting a package. Sometimes I still get important letter mail, but most stuff is electronic.

I write to prisoners, it's a great way to build relationship and can make all the difference to their time inside. I have been corresponding for years with various political prisoners. It also feels so good when you get a letter back in the mail.

When I send a birthday card I always write a letter to them.

Me, too.

It makes an impact, precisely because nobody does it anymore. It takes more effort than firing off an email so it is now a way of saying you value the communication enough to make that effort.

I sometimes write letters but it's been a while. Guess I should pick up the pen again.

I send them a few times a year to my daughter in MN, and her kids get notes from me too.

I occasionally write snail mail letters. It really depends on the preference of the intended recipient.

If I want to really show someone they are special. I would take the time to write a letter.

Why use the mail when we've got email now & receive it minutes after its written compared to waiting days for it

It’s more personable and physical. When I was dating a guy overseas (soldier) I’d email him but also send a letter and care package, it’s the small touches that matter.

I used to love writing letters. Of course, that was before the internet. Occasionally I'll still write one.

"Everyone loves getting a letter in the mail," my daughter Claire, 28, said last month.

Claire saves my letters. Love the touching, heartfelt notes Claire writes in my birthday and Mother's Day cards. I save her cards and letter, too.

"I am a sentimental person," Claire told me last week. "I must have gotten it from you."

My mum and I have a greatness for movies, and so many Cable shows like Game of Thrones, Dexter, westworld. just to name a few. I love when my mum turns me onto some old classics, and she loves to beturned onto some newer stuff that she might never heard of.

But to the point of this post, we use Use quite often to send each other Disks of movies to each other.

I do not generally I could if I had a long distance relationship. The ladies like that sort of thing.

@azzow2

I agree 100% it shows old fashioned good character and a touch of class to write a letter. I confess I rarely pen and mail letters these days..but it is fine thing to write a lady a sincere letter..and an even finer thing for her to receive..open ..and read one. IMO

Good Post.
