You can be romantic, and not cheesy, with the perfect quote or phrase in a personalized Valentine's Day card. Whether you're in a new relationship or have been married for years, there's a perfect saying to match your relationship status.
I've been a fan of Valentine's Day since way back in grade school when my classmates and I all exchanged cheap Valentine's cards and candies. Now that I'm married, I look forward to the day as an excuse to celebrate the love between my husband and I. We usually keep it low-key — dinner at home, a few gifts and, of course, a meaningful card. We've kept all of our Valentine's Day cards since when we were dating, and it's grown to be quite the collection. Whether you're casually dating someone, in a long-term relationship or have been married for decades, here's how to approach your Valentine's Day love note.
Tip: Avoid sexual comments. They may be fun, but they're best kept out of a card, especially in the new relationship.
