Everyone emails, right? So one cool idea for next Valentine’s Day is to send him a love letter expressing how deep your love is for him.

These quotes are all well and good. But maybe they’re a little generic. You may be wondering what’s a REALLY amazing and heart-fluttering line that you could rewrite for an epic love letter?
Let’s consider some of the most romantic quotes of all time, as determined by general consensus.
- “I loved her against reason, against promise, against peace, against hope, against happiness, against all discouragement that could be.” (Great Expectations by Charles Dickens)
This quote illustrates an important point. What matters though is not that love is intense or logical but that it makes a person happy. So when writing your love letter, try to illustrate how happy you are because of this relationship.
It’s not just about stating a fact (“I love you!”), or using powerful worlds, but about sharing feelings. You’re a happier person because he’s in your life.
Here’s another great love quote.
- “I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts.” (Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally)
- “In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” (Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen)
The “challenge” of a someone admitting their feelings makes the following statements all the more intense and heartfelt. When you let a lover know, confiding so intimately isn’t easy for you, he will appreciate how special the occasion is.
Speaking of which…
Want to know how can I make him feel special? Quotes like the following are important because they are very much in the spirit of Valentine’s Day. The occasion is not just about romance or sex, but about making him feel appreciated, loved, and best of all, recognized for his unique qualities.
Remember what we say about men in general on this blog. Men want to be applauded and loved for their efforts, not just their potential. So find some ways to express just how much you appreciate his special qualities. Consider lines like…
- “I wouldn’t change anything about you for the world…but I would change the world just to make you happy.”
- “Of all the wonderful people I’ve ever known, none of them compare to you. You are the one who gets me, understands me, and connects with me better than anyone else.”
- “I love you the most because I’ve never met anyone like you. Every cool new person I meet is just a reminder of how special you are.”
- “Everyone falls in love with you because of your looks. Your wit. Your accomplishments. But I love you because I see the real you, the one behind the mask. You have a heart of gold and you love the people close to so intensely. That’s what I see in you and why I love you so much.”
- “I’ve never felt so close to anyone before. You brought out a side of me I didn’t even know I had.”
- “I love you the most because you’re you. You’re the kind of guy who…(list all of the cute things he does every day that make you smile) …and that’s why you’re special. I know you and love you because of all the little things that make up you.”
But hey, not every Valentine’s Day love letter or text message has to be an epic quote. Finally, let’s review a few lines that aren’t so INTENSE, and instead focus on some Valentine’s Day text messages for him that are fun, sexy, and more about flirting than loving.
- “Just thinking about a certain sexy man this Valentine’s Day…and YOU sir are the sexiest!”
- “You are the cuddliest teddy bear of all! Happy Valentine’s Day!”
- “You are my bucket list.”
- “I love you a little bit more with every passing day. Happy V Day!”
- “I think we should celebrate Valentine’s Week with a 7-day sex marathon. Agree or disagree?”
- “I like Valentine’s Day. Not because of the old Saints or the greeting cards…but because it reminds me that I have you. And that’s why I like to celebrate!”
Well, I don’t know about you, but I am all choked up!
This Valentine’s Day, send him something romantic and reawaken his manly instincts to woo you all over again.
