Is the love letter a lost art-form?

  • Is the love letter a lost art-form?

    Fewer than one in five Britons have received a love letter from an admirer in the last 12 months, new research reveals.

    In fact, less than a third (28 per cent) has received one in the last five years, suggesting that the romantic form of communication is on its way out.

    However, writing a letter is still the most popular way of saying thank-you as more than a third of the respondents questioned by Bradford and Bingley (34 per cent) said that they would put pen to paper in order to thank someone for a gift or outing.

    Paul Whitlock, head of savings at Bradford and Bingley, said: "The old-fashioned love letter appears to have had its day but writing a letter clearly remains a popular way of staying in touch, with more than half of all Britons having written a personal letter to a friend or family member in the last six months.

    "Despite technological advances, putting pen to paper also remains the most popular way of saying thank-you."

    If you're looking for someone you can write love letters to, search for your perfect date!
