Valentine’s Day, the annual celebration of love and devotion, puts pressure on couples to think up original and romantic ways to express their love.
Over 25 million Valentine’s Day cards are expected to be sent in the UK - each with a message of adoration from an admirer.
So, are you struggling to personalise your card or can't put your love into words? Here are 21 funny, cute and romantic messages to help you out.
A simple gesture of adoration and love can be the most meaningful:
"You're the woman/man of my dreams - we make the perfect team.”
"Valentine’s Day is all about love, so today is a great time to tell you I love you!"
"I'm so lucky to have found you, you are my best friend. You make me feel so loved and protected”.
"The little things we share make every day magical. I love you more than you could possibly know."
"You’re my soulmate and my sidekick, thanks for being by my side! I love you!"
These are for those true old school romantics:
“Not everyone is fortunate enough to find true love. I am a lucky one because I am with you, my Valentine.”
“Love like ours is hard to find, I feel so blessed to have found my one true love,who always puts a smile on my face and a spring in my step. Happy Valentine’s Day sweetie.”
“You are my sunshine, even on the darkest days, without you I am lost and when I found you it was the light I had been searching for. Happy Valentine's day my ray of shining love.”
If your love is one of laughing at each other’s bad jokes and silly gestures, these might be more appropriate:
"I know it’s cheesy but we’re meant to brie..."
"I’ll shave my legs for you, Happy Valentine’s Day!"
“May God fill your heart with love and your wallet with money so you can buy some chocolates for your honey! Happy Valentine’s Day!”
"If you were a bogey, I’d pick you!"
“I’m so glad I swiped right.”
Long distance and lockdown love
We may not get to spend Valentine’s Day with our true love due to lockdown or other long distance commitments.. If so, these messages are perfect for looking ahead to better times:
“I’m waiting for the day when there will be a knock at my door and when I’ll open it, I’ll see you standing with a smile on your face. I’m missing you like an idiot misses the point.”
“Thank you for always being with me even when we are miles apart. It makes me happy knowing that when all this is over, I will still have you.”
“Love is missing someone whenever you’re apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you are in each other's heart.”
“As long as you’re in my heart and I am in yours, there is no distance our love cannot travel”
“We might be separated this Valentine’s Day but distance can never change my love for you. Thousands of kisses from many miles away.”
