Love letters on brink of extinction

Writing a love letter is the most romantic gesture with a tradition dating back thousands of years.

But the practice is now facing extinction as men have apparently given up committing to paper their deepest yearnings, say researchers.

In a poll of 1,000 Britons, almost four in ten men admitted they never sent a love letter.

Also one-in-eight confessed they never show their feelings for their partner.

A further quarter is only romantic on special occasions - when they feel they have to be.

But women voted being sent a love letter as the most wanted romantic expression ahead of receiving flowers, being cooked for, having a poem or song written for you.
