Hi Everyone,


Which do you prefer to get, 'real' letters (written with pen on paper) or E-Mails?


Or does it not matter?

Hand written letters are much better because they are more personal. There is something romantic about recieving a letter and knowing that it has been touched by the writer.

Good evening Sir John http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

All other things being equal, I prefer 'real' letters!


But the content is important! Dunning letters in any form are to be avoided!

OOOOooooo, good question John!! I've been wondering the same thing myself, especially since I have gone "Incredimail" crazy and have really slacked off on the "Real Letters"!!! I love the e-mails, getting and receiving. I make a lot of my e-mail stationery from graphics snagged from groups or on the web and then I add little personal touches to it that would mean something to the person I'm sending it to. Lastly comes the music or saying. In most cases, there's time and thought put into each e-mail letter I send. But I agree, it's not as intimate as writing a letter, it is different. But I really enjoy doing it for people and they enjoy receiving them. If I try to suggest to a friend that I will be writing them a letter, they are like,"No, no. Just send me one of your e-mails!!!" LOLLOL. So I guess it depends on the individual. Nice thing about hand written letters is that you can spray a fine mist of your favorite scent on them, or enclose herbal tea bags to someone who is sick, or put a packet of flower seeds in for someone who loves to garden. You can make it more personal that way. So both work for me. Just depends on the person and situation http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif .

I am rather unlikely to recieve a letter but will ultimately get an email.
I would prefer a letter though!
Emails are better as your more likely to respond!

Real letters no doubt. And I like writing them too, I have got an impressive collection of notecards, writing sets, envelopes, pads and the like, I buy them every time I travel.
