When it comes to romance, our generation is about as charming as a discarded doner kebab. You may think drunkenly texting "DTF???" to your crush at 3am is endearing, but compared to the love letters of yore, it's as romantic as the NHS informing you of your STD test results.
Just in time for Valentine's Day, a poll has determined which famous letters are the most loving. Johnny Cash's letter to wife June came out on top, so pay attention:
June 23 1994
Happy Birthday Princess,
We get old and get use to each other. We think alike. We read each others minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes we irritate each other a little bit. Maybe sometimes take each other for granted.
But once in awhile, like today, I meditate on it and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met. You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me for the better. You’re the object of my desire, the #1 Earthly reason for my existence. I love you very much.
Happy Birthday Princess.
