Funny Valentine's Day Card Messages

  • Valentine's Day is my favorite day to buy you chocolates. This way I can get you exactly what you expect me to know not to get you, since it's too predictable. So that makes it a great surprise!
  • I guess we have to act like we like each other since it's Valentine's Day. To tell you the truth, I don't mind too much.
  • Russell Stover, Hallmark, and the local flower shop would like to wish you a Happy Valentine's Day. I'm just delivering their gifts.
  • I worked hard trying to think of what to write in your card. Then I just 'googled' it.
  • The only reason I celebrate Valentine's Day is to keep it from turning into sleep-on-the-couch night.
  • I love you a lot, especially when you aren't annoying me to death. Happy Valentines Day.
  • Most people don't know this, but "Happy Valentine's Day" spelled backwards is "Yad Senitnelav Yppah," which means "You Stupid Sucker" in Cherub language. Cupid told me."
  • Roses are red, violets are blue. Happy Valentines Day. I love this really cool person with a great smile, cool personality, and a sense of humor. Too bad it isn't you. Just kidding.
  • We have many Valentines Days under our belts... literally and figuratively. I guess the chocolates add up over time. Happy Valentine's Day, and another one under our belts.
  • I'm wishing you a happy Valentine's Day, because it's the only way I'll have a happy Valentine's day.
  • I can't think of any reasons to not love you.
  • I have the gas. You give me the wood. And our love is the spark. We are one hot couple!
  • You are the butter to my toast.
  • I think cuss words should be reserved to express stong emotions. That's why I'd like to tell you that you are one 'D#&%' gorgeous babe.
  • You can call me Charlie, because I have a golden ticket to your heart.

Tips for Writing Valentine's Day Messages

  • Make your message fit your relationship. Send a friend message to a friend, and a lover message to a lover. Be humorous if you think it will be received well. But if you are unsure, it is best to be serious.
  • After you write you Valentine message, wait until the next day to see if you still like it. Chances are if you still do like it, it's really good. If not, you can fix it.
  • Add any details or creativity you can. For example, you can add a poem or a story. Use descriptive words to describe everything. This will make the message more meaningful and interesting. For example, instead of saying simply: "I love you," say, "You make my life more beautiful." Write a love poem if you can.
  • Use quotes from the Bible or another source. You have the added benefit of heightening your message of love by making it more spiritual. You can use Biblical references such as 1 Corinthians 13, or you can use Song of Solomon for some steamy lines.
  • Use descriptive adjectives to describe your love, your relationship, and your special person. Adjectives that are unique are best. Words like exquisite are better than "nice" or "good." Here are just a few to get you started: incredible, fascinating, stunning, unbelievable.

Here is part of a poem I'm writing for my boyfriend Paddy:

Why I love you

You have the most amazing smile I have ever seen and your eyes sparkle like diamonds under an endless ray of the sun

P.S. I like the one that says:

Roses are red, violets are blue, Happy Valentines day, I love this really cool person with a great smile, cool personality, a sense of humor, and it isn't you. Just kidding.
