from the waste-no-time dept

theodp writes "According to the WSJ’s Jeffrey Laslow, love letters ain’t what they used to be. Passionate essays penned on Valentine’s Days past have morphed into bursts of IM and e-mail affection. Stacie Harb doesn’t seem to mind. She treasures her boyfriend’s 37-word declaration of love, keeping it in her phone’s saved messages. ‘It’s not some drawn-out, 10-page letter professing his undying love,’ Harb says. ‘That would be creepy.’"
