I agree - the whole 'romantic girl who wants to be loved act' doesn't ring true.

The girl wants what she wants - romanticism doesn't come into it imo.

Its good that you're not scared to say it on here because so many are.
All girls are different. If a girl claims to enjoy romance it doesn't mean that she would like to have a guy write her a love song. You gotta find out what she wants and go with that, although yeah it can seem weird that so many girls claim that they want a sweet romantic guy n end up going for the sexy bad boy types.

I think they're cute, as long as he doesn't read it out loud. For some reason that makes me uncomfortable. If it's a nice note left out for me to find, it's cute.

If you write them in Dairylea... or stick cheese strings to the paper and form letters with them... Then yes... they are definitely cheesy.

If you write them normal. They are cheesy, but it depends on how well written they are, and who for...

Love letters are soooo cheesy, it's something you can both laugh about later, making it quite intimate and romantic

they can also be very dangerous if your wife finds letters you sent to a previous girl friend and they are the same as you sent to her ps like the location

I send love letters to my boyfriend from time to time when I'm missing him (LDR). The first one I sent was a total surprise for him and when he read it he cried. So I guess it's OK sometimes

I guess I'v always been more a face to face person... I'v recieved a few and even drafted poetry and beautiful letters in response... never sent one of them though as its just not me to be 100% honest (I'm quite a closed off person).. If I'm going to be gushy and romantic I'll do it face to face, or at the very least in person. A few sparingly given romantic comments and thoughts are special.. overdoing them is not.

Love letters are just too cheesy for words, particularly ones that spout poetry at you!

It depends. If you're not in a relationship and are feeling cynical, then they are cheesy. If they're badly written, then they can be cliched.

I love letters, sending and receiving them. My boyfriend kept all the letters I sent to him while away from home, he has them on the table by his bedside and says that he reads them if he's feeling alone. My best friend wrote me some letters recently that were...interesting.

In letters, you feel able to write things that you might not otherwise say. When reading one, you feel closer to the sender, much more so than you could with an email. Handwriting is so much more personal, as are crossings-out, sudden slants in writing as they rush across the page to write down a breathless thought that has just occurred to them, and whether the letter was originally written in pencil and painstakingly written over in pen once the words had been chosen.

Ok, maybe letters in which the writer declares their love for you outright and then proceeds to count the ways are embarassing. But ones where they get there in a roundabout way, ones which are more subtle - the emotion is in the telling rather than in the cringe-worthy direct declaration - are very special.

Are you saying this from experience, or from films/TV/books? If it's from experience, make some more literate friends...you might change your mind.
