  1. Back in the day, people knew how to write a love letter. They weren’t kinky, but passionate and full of yearning to be together. Ah, I feel a plot with love letters. Of course, it’s been done before but there is just something about lovers apart that is so romantic. Will they get together? Will they feel the same way they did in the letters? Can a real person live up to the imaginary expectations?
