Hidden Love Letter!

I just found something neat at work--a love letter hidden in the margin of an independent film newspaper from the summer of 1984. Back then maybe it was out on the shelf, but now someone would have to request it specifically from our storage thing here at the library.

It says:

I want you to know that I have fallen in love w/ you in the short time that we've been together. It is such a great sensation one that I have not felt for along time & I feel better than I have for 5, 6 yrs. Anyway thanks for caring about me you make me feel important. I hope you see that Tim is not the one for you because it is me.
Your Soulmate


I have so many questions!
1. The corner is torn right beneath "soulmate." What was there before? His name? Did she see it? Did she know? Did she take it? Did he?
2. Did she choose him?
3. Who is Tim? What happened to him?
4. Why confess your love in the margin of a newspaper that belongs to a library?

I guess that it is just rough copy for real love letter.
You can do investigation to find out all answers to your questions - see all men who requested this copy in the library card and call them!

HAH! Anon, what a great suggestion.

Oh man!! Please let us know if you find out anything more? Although the mystery may be the best bit. I think I'll add you to my Google Reader just so I can see if anything turns up.

I came here via a link at Team Bettendorf to your I'm Glad I'm a Girl... post.
