Default Letters!

So I see that I'm the minority here. I love phone calls and visits... but there is something about his letters. I love going to the mailbox and seeing that I have a letter from him. He is a creative writer. I also feel like I really get to hear his heart in his writing in a way that is different than on the phone or over visits. Don't get me wrong, I love visits, and I love phone calls. However, phone calls are so expensive for me... hard to afford it. Visits are great, but they are limited, and right now are through glass. So, I am going to go with letters!

I would take the phone calls. With calls I know exactly how he's feeling. You can't really fully understand their emotions in a letter. And just seeing him once a week is a tease to me. Besides his voice is what I miss the most

I have to agree. My guy can pour his heart out in a letter. Its different than talking. I love the quaintness of letters. Seems romantic. And I like to keep them and read them again and again. I also like holding it, knowing that it was in his hands at one time. I guess that is corny, but it's me! I got my first letter from him today and I kissed the envelope! Cheesey! But, just knowing that he has written it made me miss him so bad.

I am torn between the calls and seeing him every week...

1) Letters suck. In my experience it leaves too much room for interpretation and we just do NOT do well writing.

2) I LOVE hearing his voice in the morning, when he is sleepy...AH! It's sexy! Plus every other day... still leaves room for something to talk about. Odds are that you could always have a decent conversation. Only problem is the noise!

3) But man, I am really far away now - but if I were closer and able to see him weekly and be able to sit down in front of him and feel his touch, kisses and hugs. Oh my!

OK, I am liking the idea of number three the best *runs to vote*

I Picked letters. Phone calls are costly, and not able to visit. Letters I can keep forever

I would pick phone calls every other day. Some times hearing his voice is all I need to get through the day. After 6 years, the letters just don't cut it anymore, visits are great but it's always rough having to leave him there.

It's hard to choose between phone calls and letters, I like him calling every day but I like how deep things get in his letters

Because of the distance between me and my husband the weekly visits are out of the picture, letters would be my second choice but hearing his voice is much more important to me

Letters. He can write as much as he likes, he infuses his letters with so much love. We talk about everything under the sun. I can go back and revisit exactly what he said. Letters, without question.
