How To Write a Valentine’s Day Message

Writing a Valentine’s Day message is the perfect opportunity to express your appreciation for someone, whether you’ve been together for a few weeks, months, or years. However, doing this can be intimidating for many people for several reasons. If you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry. The following tips will help you write the perfect message.

1. Include Special Moments

Write a heartfelt message by adding an inside joke or your favorite moments together. A handwritten letter shows your effort. If you want to make it even more personal, seal it with a kiss (with your signature lipstick color) or add a spritz of cologne or perfume.

Remember that time we stayed up talking for hours under the stars on the hood of my car? That is one of my most cherished memories.

2. Express Yourself Honestly

Tell your significant other what you like the most about them. Remember, knowing your audience is essential, regardless of what you’re writing. If you know the recipient gets uneasy at too much mushiness, try to find a happy balance between being sincere and modest.

You’re so special to me. I love the way you make me feel safe, no matter what’s going on in my life.

3. Write About The Future

Maybe you’ll be meeting each other’s family soon or going on a trip. Write about that or about how you picture your lives together. Doing this indicates commitment and hope for the future.

There’s so much I look forward to experiencing with you. Yes, the trip to Colorado will be so much fun, but I can’t wait for the rest of our lives together.

4. Be Original

Don’t just copy a famous love quote into a Valentine’s Day card and call it a day. Remember, this is an ideal chance to show your love to someone. Don’t think of it as having to write a Pulitzer Prize-winning love letter; just make sure you’re original and write from the heart.

For so long, I was cynical about love. I threw in the white towel and was ready to surrender to an average, unremarkable life. And then I met you, and you make me excited about every single day.
