    I really want to send some to my online friends

    . I find them alot more valuable than texts because they have alot more effort put into them and reveal the writer's personality . I'm learning graphology so I could learn people's personality through their handwriting .

    A favorite of mine is to read old love letters

    written during the civil war and World War II. Men had a way of expressing themselves that was tender and endearing....something that is rarely found today. Even the style of penmanship had romance in every stroke. Ah, to receive such a letter would be a delight I would cherish...

    Handwritten letters are more personal.

    You can keep them and read them over and over cry on it smell it hold it when you can't be with the one that wrote it. I there's nothing like.getting a letter in the mail.

    since 1st grade when we got one in class. Recently, I've been exchanging letters with a friend from Girl Scouts. There are some more friends who I was going to do that with.

    I do calligraphy. It makes the message more

    sincere, somehow. It makes a connection between the sender and the recipient, and you can add the personal touches you can't make in Microsoft Word!

    Of course, hand written just shows more love,

    concern, or whatever. And I think that pretty handwriting shows intelligence. Just look at Jefferson's Declaration of Independence.

    To me hand written letters mean you have the

    time to write whatever you need to write down. Hand written letters is beautiful and super meaningful. I prefer a hand written letter then to send an email, but now, people write emails, and letters take time to receive and no one wants that. I miss the olden days.
