Hi all,

I just logged out of a Catholic site I belong to and there was a post there asking, "Whats a good ink to use when you're giving up on love and becoming a hermit"?

There might be a connection... :unsure:

Oh and thanks for the suggestions of RO Thunderstorm (I have yet to try the same I have of it  :headsmack:) and of Lamy Crystal Azurite (which is on my short list of "Inks I REALLY Need to Buy...."

Ruth Morrisson aka inkstainedruth

 

RO Thunderstorm... Well I treat it as a blue-Black or grey/green/confused something black, and it is very nice.

Don't expect too much of that sheen people keep talking about, or the sudden appearance of the red...

 

That only comes out in blobs or if you use a paintbrush to write... hrm... maybe I should try putting it into my OBBB.... hrm.... d**mnit... off to flushing pens now..

+1 for asking what her favorite color is. There’s really no downside to dating someone who is thoughtful and considerate. Short of that, pick the color you like, then at least someone is pleased.

And if I could say anything to my younger self, it would be to not take it all so seriously. Not every relationship works out, it’s okay to just enjoy a frivolous dalliance now and then.

Maybe this is where the OP finds out that they can write the sort of love letters whose passionate words burn the very paper they’re written on? Maybe they’ll look back on this letter fondly in twenty years while straining to remember who exactly My Darling was?

Noodlers black swan in australian roses.

 

 

 

Hands down, this would be my vote too. Just gorgeous, especially on a cream or off white paper.

IMO, OP got confused by the myriad of colour suggestions and decided to go in person to blurt out his feelings.

Situation backfired and feeling dejected/rejected, OP decided to give celibacy a shot.  biggrin.png

I salute the OP's efforts but all I can think of is several reasons why this could turn into a script for a comedy:

 

- Did you get my letter? No, it's probably in my spam folder.

- Wow this guy wrote a letter... Should I move to another country and change my name?

- I can't understand anything... Did he send me his laundry list?

- It's got glittery ink... Just how immature is he?

- Does he expect me to reply in the same way? This sounds like high maintenance.

- He sent it in copy paper, what a cheapskate.

- I got his handwriting analyzed, they told me to leave everything behind and run.

- Wow, this guy can't spell for sh**t.

- Cool, another hipster like me!

- I wonder if I can send him one my cats.

 

As for colours:

 

Black: too deadly. Unless she's a goth I guess.

Oranges, reds: look at me look at meeeee!

Maybe blues, browns, even darker greens?

 

As ever, and even if I don't agree completely with Mr. McLuhan, it's hard for people to go beyond the medium to see the content.

In 1970 red Sheaffer ink was the color of love in my Parker 51 and in her Montblanc.  Today most people don't write letters.  If she isn't expecting the letter, what will she think?  Perhaps red color on the text love message. 

 

I had to work the filler on my 51 pretty hard to rinse the red out.  Easier with a C/C filler.  A clear red ink showed the ardent nature of the words.  Prissy off-reds just wouldn't be the same.  A love lost in time.

which, in his case, entails a one way correspondence so the colour is irrelevant.  laugh.png
