What to Write in a Valentine’s Day Card for Every Relationship Stage

Some people have a way with words, while others don’t quite have that same skill. This one is for you if you’ve ever tried to write a considerate, suitable Valentine’s Day card but ended up with a million pieces of torn paper at your feet.

No matter where you are in your relationship, Valentine’s Day texts can be difficult. Even seasoned authors may struggle and end up losing their hair trying to figure out exactly what to put on that blank card. You don’t want to overdo it and spook out someone you just started dating with an overly sappy card because that could lead to an unanticipatedly awkward conversation. However, if you’ve been dating someone for a while and they mean a lot to you, you don’t want to write a card that might come out as corny and have your date’s face slump because of it. It might not be apparent that you care as much as you do. The good news is that you may be sentimental in a personalized Valentine’s Day card without coming across as cheesy by including the right tiny remark or phrase.

Here’s how to handle your Valentine’s Day love message, regardless of whether you’re just starting to date someone, in a committed relationship, or have been married for years.

We’ve even gathered various Valentine’s Day card examples, ranging from humorous to incredibly romantic, so you may choose one that fits the tone of the text you want to write inside if you’re overwhelmed by the whole process.

The new connection

Avoid making sexual remarks. They might be entertaining, but it’s better not to include them in a card, especially in a new relationship.

You want to be sincere but not overly so while showing someone you’re still getting to know that you care about them. Here are some examples of what you could write:

I appreciate you being my Valentine.
Muah! Valentine’s Day greetings!
Prior to meeting you, my lovely Valentine, I had never been a lover of this occasion.
I’ve enjoyed spending time with you and getting to know you. Valentine’s Day greetings!
