The closest thing to a love letter that I've written was probably a letter I wrote to my second grade bully basically asking him if we could be friends or if he would at least stop harassing me. You can imagine how that went over. He didn't want to be friends. ;) However, I have gotten a dozen or so love letters over the years from partners, friends, or those who hoped to become one of the prior categories. Some were genuinely heartfelt confessions of love, which I never know how to deal with! I find it sweet, endearing, and respectable when someone takes time for introspection and writes out their thoughts and feelings, so I try to appreciate the gift, even when it is from someone I have no interest in. However, in situations where they can't seem to get a clue that I will not allow them closer, I can't help to become annoyed by what I can only see as a superficial attraction, when there is no base I've allowed to form for such a connection! You can't really tell someone to get lost when they took the time to write from their heart, though! Unless, perhaps, it was only a tactic, and not from the heart? Hmmm!

What's your experience on the subject? Did you give or receive?

I was that dumb teen who got lots of love letters bug ignored them all thinking it was a running gag until graduation day like a ton of girls confessed to me and I felt really bad...

I use to have confidence issues...

In the last 3 years I have received 6 love letters from what I presume is the same person ( an assumption based solely on the fact the handwriting looks the same) . The gender of the sender is unknown to me but I assume it's female ( based on that inexact science that women have narrow and cursive writing) . I have attempted to track down the person sending me these letters since they always arrive unsigned with only an return address. Said return address only leads me to a post office where the staff are understandably less then eager to share personal details on their customers.

While it is a minor and slightly curious mystery to me the letters themselves spark no real feelings in me for the writer. I do not prefer shy or withdrawn women. I prefer them bold, decisive, and unafraid to openly declare their feelings. Perhaps one day I will write a letter of my own, if for nothing else to see if I can finally put this mystery behind me.

I got few once.

Then the person sending them decided to go to bed with my friend.

Then I started hating women.

I still do.

I received one in Junior High in the middle of History Class and thinking it a joke burst out into laughter (thought my goofball friend wrote it to me, not the cute girl next to him who passed it through him). My teacher wasn't too happy and forced me to read it out loud. Being the second shyest kid in the whole school it turned me beet red and I almost passed out in humiliation. After class I smacked my friend and called him a few choice words when he informed me who the sender really was. When I apologized to her and explained the situation she laughed and apologized as well. She then explained to me she liked me and wanted to be my date for a religious revival she was going to with her entire family. I was about to say yes until she explained to me her parents wanted to meet the boy she someday planned to marry. I ran like the wind (I was only 12 or 13 at the time).

I've sent a few and all have received favorable responses.

Oh dear gods, @Neugenx! Too bad Frozen wasn't released back then, so that kid would have had a clue that you "Can't marry a man you just met!" It's always crazy to me that kids think you can even know if you want to be with someone forever after only a year or two of knowing them!

@Eggrollsama, Ranwolf was saying earlier that he had some sent to him via post.


I want to read more of your stories and perspectives, though, guys. :D

Ahahahaha these posts are so cute

I received one last week for the 4th time on paper. Idk i usually get confessions over text rather than actual paper and they're friends most of the time so it breaks my heart that I have to say no to them. But eh meh I don't think i'd ever write one, I already find it difficult to think of messages to add to birthday cards never mind a heartfelt confession of love.
