  • It may be a different kind of love, but the love of friends deserves a special celebration too! Happy Valentine's Day.
  • Friendship is one of the building blocks of love, thanks for helping me see what true friendship can be.

  • Friends make the best valentines because they demonstrate love without even trying.
  • Our friendship is one of many pieces that makes up the puzzle that is my love life.

Find Inspiration for Valentine Messages

Finding inspiration for Valentine poems or messages takes a bit of creativity. Poems need not rhyme, nor should messages seem forced. Instead, listen to your inner voice and find the most simple way to say what is in your heart.

Many people find inspiration from greeting cards, movie lines or certain verses in love songs. The following famous romantic lines and Valentine's Day quotes can be borrowed to convey your deepest feelings and help you write the sweetest Valentine's message:

  • You can't go wrong with the classic line from the movie Jerry Maguire, "You... you complete me."
  • "And I think I'd miss you even if we'd never met," is one of the most romantic quotes from the movie Wedding Date.
  • You might not expect it, but the line "I have crossed oceans of time to find you," comes from Dracula.
  • The great Leonardo da Vinci once said, "Life without love is no life at all."
  • Notting Hill is a movie filled with great lines such as, "And don't forget... I'm also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her."
  • "I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible," is a memorable quote from When Harry Met Sally.

Surprise Your Loved One

Once you have a well written romantic message for your loved one, you'll need to find a way to deliver the message in an equally romantic manner. Consider surprising your lover with your romantic message in one of the following ways:

  • On the inside of a beautiful or romantic card
  • Inside a bouquet of flowers
  • Tucked in a box of chocolates
  • On a bedroom pillow
  • Attached to a present
  • Inside a bottle
  • In a frequented desk drawer
  • Tucked into a wallet or purse

For a Valentine's day your lover is sure to remember, surprise them with a day full of romantic messages delivered in different creative ways. Why not start their morning with a letter on the pillow filled with a silly poem and end the day with a final message indicating a restaurant date? Love messages deliver instant gratification to the recipient, and sharing your love and gratitude is exactly what Valentine's day is all about.

More Ways to Express Your Love

Perhaps you're not exactly a word sleuth. Rest assured there are still many ways to convey your love and admiration without the need of words. Handwritten love coupons, redeemable for back massages, extra kisses, date night, movie night, bubble baths, etc. are simple ways you can surprise your lover without the use of creative wording. In addition, a simple romantic message can be tucked into a soulful CD or favorite romantic movie, allowing the gift itself to speak these heartfelt words for you.

Writing a Great Valentine's Message

The most important thing to remember when sharing romantic thoughts is to make them your own. No matter the style or the extent of your expression, a good Valentine's message hits the right chord each and every time.
