Valentine Day Wishes – 40 Quotes That Keep It Real

Written by Drishti Nagda • 

Let’s be real, Valentine’s Day is a lot of work. You need to plan out the day, get the perfect dress, shop for the world’s best gift and make sure that everything is perfect! And in all that bustle, you also need to send them amazing texts and messages. That can be a lot of work. Well, I can’t help you with setting up your perfect date, but I can help you with your valentine day wishes.

Now, before we get to business, let me tell you something. Valentine’s Day is just another day and should not be the only day you celebrate your love. Sure, go all out that day, be fancy and classy and over the top. But don’t stop at midnight. Love is felt best when expressed. So don’t be stuck at ‘I love you’ for 365 minus 1 days, instead reel them in, say something great (and real) about them and keep your love young.
