Would you like to try free online handwriting test?


Handwriting is as unique as a fingerprint, and characteristics within the way that the words and letters are formed can often say more about the person than the writing itself.

Follow these instructions to find out how to analyze some handwriting and discover the inner secrets within...

How it works

You will be asked to find or produce a suitable handwriting sample and then answer a series of questions about the handwriting on-line. The questions are fairly simple, and there are on-screen examples for each of the characteristics to look for.

After you have completed answering the questions, you will submit the answers by clicking a button on-screen. The data received will be processed by the Graphonomizer handwriting analysis software, and a FULL FREE report of the personality traits found, which includes a bar chart and 500 - 1,200-word description, will be displayed on screen, within a few seconds.

What you will need

Some handwriting to analyze (see below for more detail about this)
Magnifying glass (to help see smaller details)
Tracing paper (optional)
Patience (It may take 20 minutes to an hour to do the analysis)

The handwriting Sample

The handwriting sample is best if it is…
Written on plain paper
Written in fountain pen, although a ball point pen or similar is fine
A reasonable size (more than 15 lines)
Signed with a typical signature

What you will get

After you have answered all of the questions, and clicked on the submit button, you will be taken to a new page which will contain your FULL FREE handwriting analysis report.

The report will tell you about personality traits, emotions, and other details derived by the Graphonomizer from the answers you gave about the handwriting. This report will include a bar chart showing scores for the eight major personality traits, and a 500 - 1,200-word personality description.
To see an example of a report, click on the report icon opposite.

4 Free Online Services, Helping you to Write Professional Love Letter to your Sweetheart

1. Valentine’s Day Love Letter Generator

Fill out your names, select the options and press "Render". You'll get a chance to preview your letter before you send it. If you don't like it then feel free to generate another one.

Hint: If you want to quickly generate a serious love letter rather than a comical one, then always select "SKIP THIS SECTION" when possible (with the exception of the very last option of adding kisses).

And that is a letter I got, when I filled all the details:

My dearest Tanya,

A fire inside me burns with fiery passion to unleash what I am about to say to you! And only the sweet nectar from your lips may vanquish this fiery inferno.

Should a thousand angels tear out my heart with the forsaken instrument of death, it would still beat for you a million times and call your name in the night. I just cannot explain the passion inside which burns for you.

What person in their sane mind could resist your gorgeous hazel eyes which remind me of hazel nuts (even though technically speaking they are not the same color), but you know what I mean, my love.

Your lovely red hair has always amazed me. It reminds me of strands of shiny copper wool (believe it or not, copper wool actually does exist! Honest I did a search on Google and found a picture) Although I wouldn't use your hair to clean out a frying pan with, so please don't worry about that and stop hiding the scissors.

I've always enjoyed walking along the beach with you. Just the two of us alone, walking along while the sun sets. I know there's always the fear of not finding our way back in the dark (because beaches don't have street lights installed) but fear not my love, because I bought one of those LED torches the other day, so rest assured we will be OK.

Words alone cannot express how unique my love is for you. I love you, and you only, I swear that to you my love ....having said that I do love my car which I've just bought recently. I promise to take you out in it, and because I am so happy about the car, I promise I won't try and make you put out as always. Well at least you won't slap me for touching you in an anti-social manner in front of old ladies, but thats not important right now! (But if you ever see me drooling over it, then it is important, unless you get mad because I am not giving you any attention)

I have to tell you one thing though. I really do love your eyes. I think that is the most amazing part of you, and is the most amazing thing on this planet! God, I wish I could do nothing but stare at your beautiful eyes all day (besides eating, drinking and sleeping of course). That would be pure heaven for me!

I will forever be thinking about you, and I love you with every beat from my aching, burning heart which will wither away and die without your sweet nectar-like words!

I live only to please your fiery carnal desires,



Pretty impressive letter, I would say!

Ready to use and highly personal the love letter generator will keep your mind away of any of the troubles encountered when trying to write such a note. The relevant words to use are left to your choice so you decide the love letter style and how much you want to personalize it. Whether you want a timeless letter or a funny love note to show your other half how much you care this is a great tool to help you do that.

Just try it once with the first words that come in mind when you think of your loved one. You can then adjust your language to create a cute love letter or just a plain classical one. You can use this generator as your inspiration and further develop your note.

Example of the letter:

Oh, precious, Tanya,

I need to confess something to you. Ever since I met you, I can only think of your radiant, hazel eyes. You filled my heart with unexpected joy and my head with amazing dreams of us together. My love can only grow more and more each day.

I dream of us travel and from time to time I would gently stroke your ginger hair while you keep smiling. In moments like these my life would simply be complete.

When I’m alone in the quiet, it always feels like I can hear your voice, whispering me sweet nothings, just like the blessed music of a guitar. I wanted to tell you this from a long time ago, you are as essential to me as is my blouse.

My Beloved Tanya, please be sure I mean everything this love letter carries to you with all my heart. Once I saw your lovely eyes I knew there won’t be anything more precious to me in this whole world. I want to take you away from the ordinary, away from any upset or misfortune and we shall go together to Harbin Hot Springs.

You are the best I ever had and I must be the luckiest person to have you in my life. You are my sunny day in autumn. I’d give up all the Sushi in the world to know that you will be right there beside me for the rest of our lives.

My heart skips a beat at the thought that soon I will bring you red roses to show you once more how dedicated I am to you, for all eternity.

Love and kisses,

3. OOCities Love Letter

This Love Letter generator has a different algorithm. You can select from the drop-down menu different continuations of the sentences of your creation. So, in a way, you are more in power of writing what you want to express. But, that would definitely be not so artistic as in the previous cases.

Example of the letter:

Dear Beautiful
I am so in love with you.
You and I are forever.
I miss you dearly and I would do anything just to see you smile.
Please agree to never break my heart and if possible, make my dreams come true.
If you will make love with me tonight I would be willing to make it worth it.
I hope and pray you will allow me the chance.

For my love, Tanya.

I feel so happy and sad sometimes,
When I think of you each night and day,
And when I see you, I see eyes,
I love you more than words can say...

You're so gorgeous! This love is obsession!
I can't resist your warmth, it's true!
The corals and soul fade into shadows...
I am absolutely crazy for you!

Your soul is sweet; your heart is loving,
And my heart is truly in your hands.
I could touch and hug 'til life was done,
But YOU are the focus of my plans.

This deep happiness is gorgeous my love,
And for you, Tanya, I thank Heaven above.

All my love, Michael x

And there are the follow-up recommendations from creators, inspiring you to shape up the letter manually, making it really special!

Though our free love poem generator is terrific, and the poem should be fantastic as it is, a machine cannot compare to the poetic nature of a human (you!). So use your free poetry as a starting point; see if you can tweak the lines a little and add your own personal touches for a truly personalized experience. When it's ready, write it into a card, or a letter to serve with flowers and chocolates; read it out loud when they least expect it; layer it over an image of you together... the possibilities are endless! Whatever you do, keep your love for romance alive!

Well, so many options for you to choose from… Be creative, be funny, be original. Use the generated letter as the starting point for your own lyrical expression of your feelings. All your efforts will be appreciated. And if not… may be that is not a right person for you?

Veggiesouls – Free Vegan Cookbook

Veganism is a way of living that seeks to exclude, as far as possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing and any other purpose (Vegan Society of the UK, 1944).

Properly planned vegan diets] are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases…. are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes (American Dietetic Association, 2009)

For many people, the main reason, preventing people to become vegans, is related to the core belief that the vegan food, while maybe healthy, is not fulfilling and is not tasty.

Happiness and food are really highly connected, from the pleasure of cooking and eating to the changes in brain chemistry that food can bring about. Eating is one of the great sensual pleasures in life, and food effects the pleasure and reward centers in our brains in the same way drugs do and this can lead to people experiencing the same problems with food as they do with drugs.

People who love to eat are always the best people (Julia Child)

There is no sincerer love than the love of food (George Bernard Shaw)

Can we make sure that the vegan food will bring us the same, if not higher, emotional and physical satisfaction? Can we make the vegan food at least as delicious as non-vegan? That depends on the cook. And the free vegan cookbook, offered by Veggiesouls might be your assistant in becoming a pro – for you, for your family, for your friends. Nothing can beat quality home-made food, right?

Veggiesouls is your place to find vegan recipes for your breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also have a lot of vegan cakes and other desserts. Select the type of vegan recipe you are looking for in the top of the page, and be inspired!

Veganism is not a "sacrifice." It is a joy (Gary L. Francione)

Basically, whatever type of vegan recipe you are looking for, you will find here – and they are all delicious and taste-tested!
