6 Tips for Writing On Valentines Day Cards
1) Never write love if you mean like. Writing "I love you." to someone you'd like to know better or to an old flame will get you in trouble. The new person may get scared off. And the old flame will get the wrong message. Unless you're really trying to get back together.
2) Think before you write. If you're ordering flowers for delivery, figure out what you want on the card before you pick up the phone. Write it down. Remember the florist enclosure cards are only 2 x 3 inches. You cannot get 500 words on there. Trust me. I've tried!
3) Spell the person's name right. As a matter of fact spell everything right. If you're a bad speller it will show the person you care.
4) Write the card out yourself. No one cares how bad your handwriting is. It really is the thought that counts.
5) Don't just grab a card and sign your name on the bottom. Put a little thought into it. Write a line or two. If in doubt ask for help. But if you have trouble rhyming two words, don't copy a poem off the internet and expect anyone to believe you actually wrote it. Be yourself.
6) Sign your name. People, especially women, hate getting flowers delivered to them anonymously. Don't believe me? Read this.
