Why I still write a love letter…


Newsworldbd.com -12.02.2016

Love-letter-DamiEmoticons just do not do it for me
I sent this cute guy a panda emoticon, a smiley with hearts for eyes and a heart emoji in a bid to profess my love for him. Soon after, I saw him typing but the message never reached me. Looking sullenly into the chat bar, I realised, it gave him no ‘feels’. It was just a panda in love. Possibly, with another panda. It was then that I realised emoticons will never say how much in love we are — sometimes they only say how stupid we are.

I am more coherent on paper
With great smartphones comes great autocorrect. Sometimes ‘you’ autocorrects to ‘hulu’, and ‘things’ to ‘thongs’. I don’t want to be the weirdo who writes ‘I love hulu, handsome thong’ to anyone.

No one’s judging me
Ever had those feeling that someone’s reading your texts? Yeah, someone probably is. Either the server or your mom. That’s why it doesn’t work for me. There’s no limit to my imagination when I’m writing rosy words and keeping it sealed. That little erotic sketch I just drew at the bottom? The server’s not seeing ’em!

Freedom from anticipation
When WhatsApp introduced the monstrous blue tick that suggests the other party has read your message, we all knew the world was coming to an end. So he read it and chose to ignore it? That a**! But this one time I poured my heart out in a love letter and he didn’t write me back, I totally knew it didn’t reach him.

Good handwriting deserves an audience
I picked up a fountain pen and signed on an immaculate white paper and was humbled by my exquisite handwriting. Since then, it’s been looking at me to be validated. So I decided to add ‘love’ before my first name and started writing stuff bestselling romance novels are made of.

My crush doesn’t know my name
And Lord save me if he finds out! Let’s face it, friends. We are living in a world of Truecaller and a host of apps that can give out our location in a jiffy. In other news, just signed a love letter ‘with love, guess who’.

One day I want my grandkids to be like ‘whoa, grandma was so cool’
I have always been cool. Cool daughter, cool sister, cool aunt… taking a long leap, I want to be a cool grandma too. Which means, I obviously want my grandkids (or, you know, great grandkids) to eventually discover the letters I wrote to their grandpa or my secret lover in an old trunk.

Pheromones, baby, pheromones
Scent can evoke strong feelings that no amount of sexting can. When I sprinkle the letter with the perfume I often wear, I know half the work is done. Texting lacks the rich detailing perfume brings with it! If the letter smells like me, I know I have his attention. With perfume, you can say nothing but mean everything at the same time! Am I right or am I right?

He will read it alone
I can’t imagine my guy scrolling through ‘latest ninja games’ while reading my lovey-dovey texts. A message or an email can be read (no matter how kinky) in a room full of, say, old people. No one would know. But a love letter? That demands unhindered attention. It asks for the person to sit down and read it alone and savour the love it is laced with.

You can’t draw a red heart on email or texts
Do not underestimate that little heart you draw and then fill with red ink. It’s one of the greatest expressions of love. And don’t worry about the odd shape — for what is love if not a little imperfect? PS: I want you to write a love letter now. Not out of excitement, but out of love.
