27 Cute Things to Write to Your S.O. on Valentine’s Day

Updated Published

If you’ve ever tried to Google “Valentine’s Day quotes” to find something heartfelt to write inside of a card or in a text to send that special someone, then you know that most of the cheesy lines a search engine spits at you about “true love” are absolutely sickening. Rather than mine through the internet’s many lists of quotes, we’ve got every cute saying you could want based on your current relationship status. 

Whether you’re just in the talking stage, getting a little serious, or fully set on spending the rest of your life with someone, there is a lovey-dovey phrase that matches them perfectly. Here are a few sweet nothings you can scribble in a love letter to your valentine that won’t make your SO feel incredibly awkward.

Plus, if you are looking for the ideal date for your type of relationship, we have ideas for you, too. Try planning out a full Zoom date if you’re in an LDR this romantic holiday, make sure to get on the same page about gifts and activity expectations if you’re in a fresh relationship, and of course, think outside of the box if this is one of many Valentine’s Days you’ve celebrated together.


You’re not dating yet, so you don’t want to come on too strong; use one of these cheesy pick-up lines to make your valentine smile.

1. “Damn, you’re finer than a ticket on my windshield.”

2. “On a scale of 1–10, I’d give you a nine — and I’m the one you need!”

3. “Have we met before? Because I’m pretty sure you look like my next boyfriend/girlfriend/partner.”

4. “If I could rearrange the alphabet, I’d put U and I together.”

5. “Aren’t you tired? Because you’ve been running through my mind all day!”

6. “To anyone who’s reading this message: congratulations, we’re married now.”

7. “If you were on paper, you’d be what they call ‘fine print!’”

8. “This is your lucky day. Anyone who answers this message gets an all-expenses paid trip to come hang out with me.”

If you two are exclusively dating

You’re together, and you’re not seeing other people. You’re having a great time together, and you care about each other a lot — but you haven’t said the “L” word yet. Stick to these lines to show him or her how you feel, without saying more than you mean to.

9. “I didn’t fall for you, you tripped me!” – To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before 

10. “Baby, it’s you. You’re the one that gives your all, you’re the one I can always call. When I need to make everything stop. Finally, you put my love on top!” – Beyoncé (because honestly who isn’t a part of the Bey-Hive nowadays?)

11. “You have bewitched me, body and soul.” – Mr. Darcy, Pride & Prejudice

12. “Love’s a game. Want to play?” – Taylor Swift

13. “You are the only one that’s ever touched my heart. It will always be yours.” – Twilight

14. “The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.” – Audrey Hepburn

15. “Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen.” – Sir Elton John

16. “I never wanted more, until I met you.” – Fifty Shades of Grey

17. “I don’t care when I’m with my baby. All the bad things disappear.” – Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber

19. “And if we paint a perfect picture, we can make this last forever.” – Kassh Paige

20. “Pick me. Choose me. Love me.” – Grey’s Anatomy

If it’s meant to be

Your relationship is solid, and you’ve exchanged the words “I love you.” Here’s how to tell your sweetie just how in love with him or her you are!

21. “I love you very much, probably more than anybody could love another person.” – 50 First Dates
