Lucky in love? - Your suggestions on what makes left-handers so special

In our last newsletter, we told you about Gary in Sydney, Australia whose new girlfriend was delighted to learn he was left-handed, saying “that explains everything. It's fantastic”. We asked for your suggestions on why left-handedness should be great for relationships, and the response was huge! Thanks to all of you for your great comments. These 5 were our favourites and your prizes of an A5 left-handers spiral notebook and 2005 desk diary are on the way.

  • Hi, the left-handers in my office are excited about this mystery: Let's see now.....How about, Left handers are like salmon swimming up stream to spawn. They are always having to cope in a right-handed world and therefore are more prone to work harder in building or improving their relationships. Amy Roberts Miami, Florida
  • Through the duration of my life, I have been told that left handed individuals make better lovers. This being that they are more attentive to the needs of their lover. As we all know, lefties grow up knowing that they simply MUST compromise to fit into a society peopled with "righties". This, naturally, would make us basically "easy-going" and, eventually, eager to please. I am a south paw, so modesty will not allow me to toot this horn. However, from experience, I can assure you that all my left handed lovers have been something to write home about. Hope this helps, Mandy the lefty
  • Its very simple Gary, usually when we (left-handers) kiss someone we turn our head to left, it makes our kiss better and different and we have the ability to see the things in a different way! The more you stay with her, the more she will see how different and special you are in you way of be! Daniel Lemes, 17yrs, Brazil
  • She means you will in all probability die before she does so she can live off your insurance money…….. Phil Goldblat
  • Hey Gary, How are things down under? Ok, here's what I think your new love meant... Lefties are very loyal and faithful, so she doesn't have to worry about you straying. We're also creative, so she doesn't have to worry about being bored. We are also gentle, thoughtful and caring. Should the relationship become serious, you will be kind and gentle to her, if you know what I mean! I'm wondering if she is also left handed. We tend to be attracted to other lefties before we even know they're lefties. Debbie Loyer

You can see a lot more of the suggestions we received at the special page we have created on our web site. We have, of course, passed them on to Gary too!

Father Christmas joins the lefties

We are delighted to announce that Father Christmas, (a.k.a. "Santa Clause") has shown himself to be a proud left-hander, and is now an Honorary Member of The Left-Handers Club!

As these exclusive pictures show, F.C. is a natural left-hand writer with a good writing position. He told us " I get so many wonderful letters from children, and always reply personally, so I spend lots of time writing. I have a special left-handed pen, which simply flies across the pages" (helped along with his special magic ink).
