I just have a general question…i was just thinking about the way I communicate with people, specifically with people in a romantic sense. A few years back I gave a guy a “love letter.” Well, it wasn’t exactly the kind of gushy, typical love letter one would expect. It was more a revelation of my feelings for him…at the time I thought it was a good idea because I could sit down and really think about what to say…and I am fairly good at expressing myself in writing and terrible at expressing it in words. What do you all think of expressing your feelings for someone on paper or electronically? Is it strange? Is it cowardly? Is it avoiding facing one’s fears and reality?
I just think that for a shy girl, at the time (I was 18) it was the only way I could do it (perhaps it was selfish). Any opinions?
