Valentine’s Day is the ultimate holiday for showing your love and affection, but expressing your true feelings can be daunting. By now you have made the perfect card for that someone special, but do you know how to write the perfect Valentine’s Day message? With the exception of young children who always know just what to say and hold nothing back, we’ve all experienced this dilemma. Whether you are a newlywed, have been married for a long time, or just starting a new relationship we have you covered. Rose’s How to Write the Perfect Valentine’s Day Message tips will help you feel more confident and less stressful as you put the final touches on your Valentine’s Day preparations.
Five Tips on How to Write the Perfect Valentine’s Day Message
1. Write Quick, Simple, and Witty Messages. Keep in mind that when you write a message to a man they’d rather read what you write in a matter of seconds then get to the gift. Ladies, however, prefer the long, heartwarming messages where you go into detail of what she means to you. Also, men are also less likely to keep the cards (even if you spent hours making it). This isn’t to say you shouldn’t make the effort, you should. But when it comes time to write your message, the simpler the better.
2. Plan It. I’m the absolute worst about this. I’ll get the card, open it, and my mind goes blank. Then after I stare at it for fifteen minutes, a “brilliant” idea pops into my head. The trouble is, sometimes your hand cannot keep up with your mind and when you start writing really fast to keep up, it can end up looking messy or worded incorrectly, taking all the meaning right out of it. I’d suggest writing out your message on a plain piece of paper or even typing it out (where a delete key exists) then copying it.
3. Know Your Audience. My husband and I are big-time Scrabble players. We don’t consider it a good game unless we can both break 300 and we spend half the game unable to play words longer than two or three letters—we keep the board locked up pretty tight. So to say that we like puns and plays on words is a fair statement. For our anniversary, I got him a pocket watch with an engraving on the front that read: XX-XX-XXXX (our anniversary) to the end of time… Then on the back, it said: “I’ll love you forever, no matter how often we both get ticked!” Is this funny to most? No, probably not, but its “our” thing and he “got” it just like I got how corny it was when he proposed to me using corn kernels and went around declaring to all who asked, that it was the corniest proposal either of us had ever seen. That’s our thing. If your significant other likes plays on words, then brainstorm something clever. If the two of you have an on-going joke between the two of you, personal cards like this are a great way to keep it alive. If you met, married, or know you fell in love on Valentine’s Day, therefore, making it an extremely sentimental day for you, then a sweet sentimental message might be in order. Just remember that you have a different relationship with everyone and your message should reflect THAT relationship.
4. Quick Ideas. Do you have the curse of the blank page? We’ve all been there. We have the perfect card, but the blinding inside is still staring us in the eyes. It’s okay, not all of us have a glib tongue or always know just what to say. Here are some ideas: think about why you love them and jot down a few reasons, think about things you’ve done together, what you’d like to do in the future, why you fell in love with them, the storms you’ve weathered, the good times. Just think about them and ideas will come far easier.
5. Use Quotes about Love. Whether deep and classic: “Love is a single soul inhabiting two bodies” ~Aristotle or fun, modern and slightly vulgar: “I’ll love you until we’re both old, disgusting, and share everything—including our teeth.” ~Me. Quotes can also say what your words can’t. Be sure to always give proper credit though, otherwise you might be expected to come up with more of these little gems for all occasions or on the spur of the moment.
