What to Write in a Card for Your Girlfriend

Three major events exist when cards are always expected from boyfriends: birthdays, anniversaries, and Valentine's Day. The drawback is that these special days come no matter what, at least three times per year. The good thing is that you can use these examples and a little creativity to help you write your message.

Any time you need to say something romantic to your girlfriend, make it specific and personal. Love poems, quotes, or sweet note swill work well. Spend some time right now, before you read any further, to think about the special qualities of your relationship with your girlfriend. Then decide the best way to get your thoughts and feelings across, whether you choose to use a quote about love or an original poem.
