Secret Signs of Compatibility in the Messages You Send

19. September 2012 by Lorena 0 Comments

Are the emails that you and your Russian love send one another starting to sound alike? This could be a powerful sign of mutual affection. Scientists have known for a long time that people who have feelings for one another will verbally begin to mirror one another’s language style. But recently, they learned that this pattern extends to love letters, as well.


The pattern even extends to love letters written by famous poets. Researchers studied the poems of Elizabeth Barrett Browning and her husband Robert Browning from before the couple’s famous romance, and those written after. They found a marked similarity in the lovers’ prose styles as their relationship progressed, especially in those notes written to one another. By contrast, when researchers look at the poems and letters sent between poets Sylvia Plath and her husband Ted Hughes, it is easy to see that they are alike during the years that the two were happy, and starkly different from one another during the more tumultuous years of their relationship. The differences are even more dramatic when the levels of similarity are compared between the two relationships; even at their most compatible, Hughes and Plath never touched the similarity of the famously content Barrett-Brownings.


Romantic relationships on Russian Love Match are typically developed and sustained through email. They are usually your first means of contact, and the best way to hold longer discussions when the two of you are on opposite sides of the world, and not always able to video chat. You use written messages to tell your Russian love about yourself, and learn more about her. So, when you find that the letters that you write while courting a Russian lady start to have the same rhythm as the ones that she writes back to you, take it as a positive sign; it could mean that the two of you are heading toward a strong romantic connection.
