People love to know how loved they are. Writing a Valentine’s Day message to the one you love will deepen the connection you have between you. One of the best Valentine’s day gifts for your girlfriend or boyfriend is a Valentine’s Day greeting, a romantic gesture your partner will treasure forever. You do not need to have special creative skills to write your love message. The format is not as important as the message, but your love words will be greeted with joy and cherished by your lover. Here are some suggestions on how to write unique and romantic love message as your Valentine’s Day greeting.
Write from the heart
Do not be afraid to really open up about your feelings. The best love letters strike a balance between considerate and uncensored. It is best not to copy and paste entire poems and lyrics and try to pass them off as your own. Your lover will sense the words are not yours, even if they have never heard the lyrics before. If you are at a loss for words, you can include quotes, just stick to ones that really remind you of the person or of your feelings for them.
Everything you include in your Valentine’s Day love should show what it is that makes you love your partner so much. Be honest, vulnerable and thoughtful. This makes your Valentine’s Day message a truly unique, romantic and special gift direct from your heart to theirs.
How to write your Valentine’s Day love greeting
Your Valentine’s Day love message can be in any format you wish. A top ten list, a poem or prose, it is up to you. The format is irrelevant, as long as your words are genuine. Your Valentine’s Day message or greeting does not have to be in your own handwriting if it is hard to read. It is perfectly fine to send a typed message via text or social media. Use whatever medium you feel comfortable with. Remember, it is the substance of the message that is more important than the style of delivery.
What to include in your love letter
Here are some ideas for you to put together your own Valentine’s Day love words. Start with a few words saying why you are sending this message. Prepare them for what is to follow. You could say “I thought it was time to put pen to paper and tell you how I feel about you.” or “I find it difficult sometimes to find the words to let you know just how much I love, admire and respect you,… so I thought a letter would be best.”
- The content of your love message or poem
Add a couple of your best memories as a couple. This could include the birth of a child, a fantastic vacation, the time you just knew that your beau was the one for you, the event that made you laugh so hard your belly ached or the gig you went to where you danced and sang all night. This can be a list of different times or a replay of one time in detail, it is up to you.
Specify exactly what you love about them
Write the highlights of what it is you love about your sweetheart. Whether it be their beauty, drive and ambition, loyalty, sexiness, thoughtfulness and more. If there is something you love that you do not mention often enough, include it here. Tell them the very specific gift that they bring to your life and the smallest thing they do that makes your heart sing – their smile or laugh, how she looks when sipping her coffee or how he always has the perfect reaction gif for every situation.
Allude to the future
Finish your love letter with a point about how you imagine your future to be together. This can include children, a move abroad, a special vacation or growing old together. If you are very shy, leave the letter for them to find when you are not around. Also consider whether they might prefer to read it in private. If you are giving them another gift, you could also hand your love message to them with it.
Take some time to consider what your lover brings to your life. Make a list of the ways your beloved raises you up physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and sexually. How have they and do they make your daily life better or easier? This is likely to be a long list, but you do not have to write about them all. Choose your top 5 and focus on those. You could say “I love how you encourage me to be the best I can. I am healthier, more driven, and more emotionally fulfilled than at any other point in my life and that is in large part because of you.” or “Thank you for helping me turn my dreams into a reality in so many areas of my life. I am so grateful you always have my back.”
