A female United Kingdom age 22-25, anonymous writes:

hello im 16 and have a slight problem.

valentines day is coming and me an my boyfriend have been together for just over a month now.

when i get him a card im not sure what to write in it. not sure whether i should say 'love you' and stuff or 'i am so glad we are together' etc. cos im not sure if he will say that in the card he gives me.

for example last year i was going out with a different boy and on valentines day i gave him a card which said things like 'love you loads' and 'miss you' etc.

then when he gave me a card all it said was 'happy valentines day, love tom'.

i really dont want that to happen this time. what shall i do?

i know guys always seem tough, but they really have a soft spot(: my boyfriend let me know that he wants some sentimental and sweet, but since his parents might read it ( we are 15 and 16) i didnt exactly write i love you. this is what i put:

you know you're in love when life is better than your dreams. (cute quote!)

you never stop making me smile. you are amazing and i am so lucky to have you. (: te amo! (that means love you in spanish, he takes spanish)

Ok Girls I was given a valentines card from my girlfriend of 2 months and it says

Dear,Miguel

I don't want to say i love you since we r both so young and we havent said it to each other yet...but let me be the first one to say it. I LOVE YOU! the way you made me laugh (and many more of those time will come up)and i love the way you made me fall in love with you...i also hate that too...i couldve been in Europe with my mom and my dad but our loves too strong and i chose to stay with you because i realized i cant be more than 2 sec away from you without me resulting in missing you dearly or my heart breaking

, love Jen

p.s. i had to say i love you sometime! imangine if i didnt say love and i said like, imangine how weird this card would be

so overall Girls just write i really like you if your just recently dating and what you like about the special someone i loved it and im just a typical guy who had a girlfriend of 2 months..im sure you'll do fine girls.

"Happy Valentines Day Baby,

You’re so amazing, I love how you make me laugh and smile,I like how you hold me tight, I love

spending time with you , i love evrything about you , you are amazing. I never want to lose you

because I cannot resist without you, Nor exist without you and I promise ill try my hardest to be

I'm 23, happily married and have kids. The best advice I can give you is say what's in your heart. Some men are great at expressing how they feel, others are not...do not let that discourage you if they aren't mushy and outward with their feelings. You are 16, love with all your heart and remember if you love him for who he truly is and how he treats you and you'll find the words to say. Life is too short not to say the words you mean because you are scared that someone may not reciprocate your feelings. Best of luck.

maybe just something simple

if you haven't been together that long perhaps:

-I love/like you for not only who you are, but for who I am when I am with you. happy valentines

-Addicted to you!  Please be mine forever.

-It's still a mystery, haven't got a clue, how I got so lucky and found you!

but this is what im going to write in my card to my boy friend josh we have only been together about 4 months, we haven't said we love each other yet and this is our first valentines day.

I'm not one for cheese and i'm pretty sarcastic and bit of a commitment phob

Josh,

I like you for not only who you are, but for who I am when I am with you. I'm so glad to be part of your life and to have you in mine. I knew from the minute I laid eyes on you that

you'd be a good shag

happy valentines day x

LOL!! i'm here a day b4 valentine's because i have NO idea what to write on the card.I feel like am kind of cheating because what i write didn't come straight from me.But i just need a little help..lol...well i been with my boyfriend for about 10 months now and i just ran out of things to say.I wrote what i felt to him on his birthday,christmas and for our 9th month and now it's valentines and i don't know what to write i don't want to sound like am repeating myself.I have wrote him things like "Every time i turn around and try to express my feelings,all that comes out is,I LOVE YOU" and "They say you don't know what you got till it's gone,well i know what i got and i'm not gonna let go". But in your situation as other people here have said in a month i wouldn't mention the word "love".With me, he was the one to say it first and he said it after we been together for 3 months.In my opinion i say you should go with something like "i love the times we've spend together and hope there's more to come"..i don't know what to say but i still have to think of something..lol...hope i somewhat helped..=)

you make me smile.. and you make me laugh.. wich i love.. and i just dont know what i'd do without you! :) mate that sounded cheesy.. ;) xx

i know that may not help to alot of people cuz they might get all shy when they read it and think wtf?

I've only been with this boy a couple of weeks, and i know you're probably thinking i shouldn't have got him a card in the first place, but we've been seeing alot of eachother for the past 2 months so it feels alot longer than it has been. he bought me some roses today and it had a card with it, saying that we hadnt been together long but he cant wait to spend valentines day with me" it wasn't anything soppy, so i dont want my card to be soppy either. i just want something along the lines of, the past couple of months being amazing but i just have no clue how to write it.

A female reader, anonymous, writes (13 February 2010):

This looks to be a very old question indeed.

I am fifteen and I've been with mine for a while now, and I have not the slightest idea what to write. "Write what you feel." doesn't help the least bit. The card is the most generic thing ever to get for your Valentine, but it's always something cute to get, yes? My first card I got him last holiday, I put my favorite quote by Robert Sexton.

"Sometimes your nearness takes my breath away; and all the things I want to say can find no voice. Then, in silence, I can only hope my eyes will speak my heart."

I've always had the problem with ever uttering the beautiful words, "I love you." to anyone. My voice shakes and breaks in places where it shouldn't. I really hope it doesn't look like I'm lying! My word, that would just be terrible!

My advice would be to write something EXTREMELY corny, or a random pick up line like I did a few holidays back, I used the classic line;

"I've got skittles in my mouth, wanna taste the rainbow?"

It was cute, simple, and corny. I'm sorry if I'm no help, I need help myself. I wanted to write something like

"There is nowhere else I'd rather be than your arms.

There is nothing I'd rather see than your face.

Stated simply; you are my everything.

No one could ever take your place."

OH WOW! I just wrote my card; haha! Wow, yeah.

I hope I helped!

what a great question and series of answers.

Is a minefield, lots of danger so several options below most sensible at the end...

go stupid and give him a pet name like adonis or something and then give yourself a name then write what you like as its not you but your alter ego.

or go over the top and and fill it with hearts and glitter and kisses and say i love you 40 000 times (one for each second)

or if you are sexually active with him say nothing of love just offer him something else

or do it the eastend way use LUV rather than love.

or just write - i know its way to early to say i love you, but the feeling is good so far... x

Yet im having the same problem when it comes to actually writing it! :o(

Should i just put "Love Jo"?

Or put something soppy at the bottom??

Ever since we have been together I feel as if you make my life so much more fun. Every time I come near you my heart skips a beat. You are my sunshine on a cloudy,rainy day. When we are together my life feels so complete. Then just add a little bit of your own words to it. Then at the end just write Happy Valentine's Day and I love you more than words would ever be able to tell.

A female reader, cd206 United Kingdom +, writes (5 February 2007):

cd206 agony auntThe majority of guys don't take Valentines Day as seriously as us. Whereas we have to pick the perfect card and write the perfect words inside, as you've seen most guys are happy just to write the minumum and sign their name. This doesn't mean they don't like you as much as you like them. They just haven't overanalysed it as much. That's why I'm going to say write whatever you want (although maybe not I love you because its only been a month) but don't be disappointed if you just get the same message as last year. It's not a reflection on you, just a reflection on men in general!
