Good evening everyone, question for you. I am planning to write some letters, as you may have surmised. What would you say the best is the medium for a declaration of love? I am thinking of getting a good fountain pen and use some great hand made paper of Isadora.

Think a hand written letter is best? I do, if not what do you think would be better. Also does anyone have any idea what makes a fountain pen good?

B ;)

Send her a text message.

Nah, too classy.

Write a message in urine in some snow, take a photo of it with your mobile phone, and text the photo to her.

Nah, too much hassle.

Write it in beer vomit out the front of her house, ring the doorbell, then run.

Nah, can't run when drunk (plus potentially a waste of beer)

Get a whole lot of ice cubes and form a love heart with them out the front of her work. Get a colleague to tell her to go outside.

Nah, ice cubes will melt.

Hire a carrier pigeon to drop a small gold locket at her house which has a photo of you inside it.

Nah, carrier pigeon might make a mistake and end up at some fat bloke's house.

I know, get some handmade paper and a fountain pen, and write her a love letter from your heart. hand deliver it with a bunch of flowers and a box of chocolates, and enjoy the response!

I think i'll go with the vomit one james... true it has the potential to waste beer - but will be worth it. Thanks!

Get a mate to tell her that you fancy her - chicks love that.

No writing with vomit - no anything with vomit!

I do think a hand-writte letter is best, B. I was going to say you could put together a scrapbook of things - writing, pictures, quotes, and so on - but she might find that a little too intense. Can you tell her in person, though? That would give you the best idea of her immediate reaction. Barring that, go with the sky wrtiting. ;)

Are you going to spray it with your after shave?

You could put a red cartridge in your fountain pen too!!

Or you could like bake her a cake or something and then like leave it in front of her door and ring the bell.

Definitely go for the written word and the fountain pen! Talking is always good too - unless you are prone to stumbling over words when it's a romantic conversation. Granted, I am "old school" so I like the letter idea. It's thoughtful and (if it works out/doesn't end badly) something that will be kept as a momento.

I disagree with the red ink, but maybe it's just me... Depending on the color of the paper and the shade of red - it could look as though you slit your wrist to write it. I personally use a purple ink. It's still a romantic color, easy to read, doesn't jump off the page too quickly and looks good no matter what color the parchment insert happens to be.

I also have to disagree with the aftershave... (SORRY MIM!) But, if the paper has retained any of the rose scent, it could clash - badly (think vomit). If no rose scent remains, then the aftershave might work. Don't douse it with the stuff - that's just as bad...

Need more?? I have a few more packs...
