You’ve bought the candy, made the reservation at her favorite restaurant and now its time to order flowers. You’ve decided to go with a pretty mix of vibrant colors instead of the traditional red roses and you’re feeling pretty good about the Valentine’s Day plans you’ve made so far. There’s just one small problem…what do you say on the card to make her really understand your deep felt sentiments? It has to be personal, original, meant for her eyes-only but what words do you choose to say?
Relax, there’s a simple model for successfully conquering this common anxiety ridden task. The first thing that needs to be done is to truly understand what feelings you want to convey. Is it love or lust? Is the relationship casual or serious? How long have you been together? Is this a long-standing partnership or brand new? What about her personality? Is she romantic, creative, sensitive or funny? See, all of these aspects must be weighed before taking out that pen to scribe your feelings. Unfortunately, a message ill written or taken the wrong way may be destructive to your relationship with your Valentine so your card has to be clear. Once you’ve decided which thematic path you wish to travel on, commit and select the perfect message that conveys those feelings. These are a few of my favorites that have put a smile on my face.
For the Valentine whose put in her time over the years:
Cupid’s aim is still pretty good!
For the 1-2 year relationship:
With you, it’s Valentine’s Day 365 days of the year.
For the 70’s peppy music lover:
How sweet it is, to be loved by you!
For the 80’s sentimental music lover:
You take my breadth away….
For the unsuspecting Valentine:
For the math loving Valentine:
You + Me = Forever or You + Me + Perfect
For the exotic romantic language loving Valentine:
For the Poetry lover:
Even in a fairy tale where every dream comes true, I could never hope to find a husband/wife as sweet as you.
For the “Working Things Out” Valentine:
The best proof of love is trust
