Evolution of the love letter

evolution of the love letterDo you remember the good old days when we used to use sweet smelling stationery and flamboyant cards to send love notes to the special people in our lives?  Well, nowadays it seems nonexistent – we are in the digital age, and communication is just a click away.  The faster interchange of information seems to have made us forget all about the somewhat primitive process of writing letters or cards to our loved ones.

The love letter is probably the oldest form of confessing your passion to someone. It dates back to 2200 BC when a Babylonian named Gimil sent his letter on a brick to his lady Kasbuya.  Love letters became popular during the 17th century.  It is usually delivered by mail or from person to person and is full of emotion and passion.  It is a great way to impress a girl, especially if you want to be romantic.  A love letter is usually deemed as the sincerest form of written passion.

Greeting cards followed and became popular in the 19th century where they were first commercially printed in the United States.  It is also believed that the Chinese were the first ones who invented the greeting card.  Colorful drawings and sweet messages are usually very attractive to greeting card buyers.  They are also common during holidays such as Christmas and Valentine’s Day.

Due to the higher technological advances, the sending of E-mails and E-cards followed.  This is more popular among teenagers and people in their early twenties.  E-mails were first used in the early 90s to leave messages to co-workers.  It wasn’t until the boom of the World Wide Web where e-mails were used as a medium for communication outside the office, like for sending love letters.   Though some people think it is somewhat impersonal, couples in long distance relationships prefers this form of communicating.  If you are always in a hurry and cannot wait for the reply via snail mail, then start emailing your loved one now!  E-cards followed as substitutes for greeting cards, though the latter is still more popular.

SMS (short message service) or Text Messaging is more mobile than email and much faster than snail mail.  This is the most widespread and the most modern way to share your loving thoughts with your special someone.  Almost everybody has a cell phone and sending text messages has become second nature to people on the go.  It is also a great medium and best alternative for pessimistic introverts who fear face-to-face rejection and so prefer to confess their love through text message. Text messages are often used by teenagers in love and the beep of their phones seems to make their day.

Whatever form it may take, written communication is always best for people in love- after face to face interaction obviously  So, this coming Valentine’s Day, do not forget to drop a quick line to your loved ones – via love letters, cards, e-mails/e-cards or text – and put a smile in their hearts.

    Fantastic images, the shade and depth of the images are breath-taking, they attract you in as though you belong of the make-up.
