Tips for Writing Romantic 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.
