Love letters are super romantic, but writing them to a guy can be tricky. You don’t want to be too mushy, but you don’t want to be overly cold, either. How do you go about penning a love letter to the object of your affection?
Turns out, the best way to send love letters is to keep them at 140 characters or less. It turns out, a new study says that these days sending a text or a tweet to the guy you dig works better than writing out a love letter!
Only six percent of gals and four percent guys admit to still sending love letters–we’re talking pen, paper, perfume, pink stationery type love letters. A lot of us still do the romantic email thing, though–96 percent of women and 92 percent of men send cutesy messages. Texting was another biggie, with 97 percent of us sending lovey-dovey messages to our beaus and 89 percent of them returning the gesture. Cute!
Twitter wasn’t as popular in the study, with only 43 percent of us and 39 percent of dudes admitting to using the microblogging site to express our affections. However, that’s because not all of the people in the survey used Twitter to begin with. There’s another potential reason for that, too: Tweets are public (as a lot of “accidental” nude photo leaks have proven), and not everyone likes their private life on display like that.
It’s worth noting, however, that this survey was conducted through SeekingArrangement.com–which is essentially a Sugar Daddy resource for rich dudes to hook up with eager, willing girls… So add an extra layer of “yecch” to these findings if you want. But it’s definitely a good insight to how to write love letters to the dude you’re into–keep them brief and keep them electronic!
