Loyal Reader Micah posted an excellent suggestion for a post:
This is certainly a difference between American and English culture. Nearly all communications here in England (text, email, written) seem to end in these little marks "xx". It's not something I've gotten the hang of yet.
It seems to me that the etiquette is as follows:
- "xx" is standard for anything. Seriously- a text message from an acquaintance usually ends in 2 x's
-"xxx" is for close friends or family members.
-"xxxx" (or more) is for romantic partners or on cards from children.
Am I right? Please feel free to discuss how you use ex's in your written communications.
