Love Letters Posted Along Lorcom Lane

Some hopeless romantic has stapled a series a posters to utility poles along Lorcom Lane, declaring his or her love for one special lady.

The love letters, which were visible to traffic heading from Spout Run Parkway to Lee Highway yesterday, had messages like “Proud to Be Yours,” “I Love You Forever,” and “The Only Woman In The World For Me.”

One passerby was befuddled by the romantic declarations.

“It’s not even Valentine’s Day,” he observed, scratching his head. On Twitter, there were questions as to whether the posters were a declaration of love or an apology, with one reader using the hashtag “#lovelettersordoghouse.”

Update at 3:15 p.m. — The mystery continues, as the initial claim of credit for the love letters appears to be an hoax perpetrated by an individual who assumed the identity of another person. ARLnow.com apologizes to both named individuals who were falsely identified as the writer and the recipient.
