JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, a recent survey reveals more than 60 percent of respondents consider a handwritten love note more romantic than expensive dinners, creme filled chocolates and diamond baubles. However, nearly half haven't received a love note in more than a year, with mobile devices reducing heartfelt expressions to "U r Gr8" and "I <3 u."  

Pilot Pen conducted the survey to find out where handwritten notes rank when it comes to making a loved one feel special. "At Pilot, we believe in the power of the pen, encouraging people to express themselves and inspire others through writing," said Ariann Langsam, Director, Consumer Marketing and Marketing Research, Pilot Pen.

  • Leave the note somewhere unexpected like the bathroom mirror, in a pant pocket, in the car or in a lunch bag.
  • Spray the love note with your signature perfume and seal it with a kiss.
  • Commit to writing spontaneous love notes throughout the year, not only on Valentine's Day.
