Texting and Online Tips for Valentine’s Day
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, you are likely already thinking about ways to show the person who is important to you that you care. Even people who think that Valentine’s Day is an over-hyped, commercial holiday can appreciate the excuse to give their significant other something special, and if you are someone who is deeply invested in showing your loved one how you feel, don’t forget the all-important world of social media.
Social media pervades our lives, and if you use your Facebook and your texts as some of the main ways that you communicate with your significant other, why should Valentine’s Day be any different? Valentine’s Day is a day when you show people how you care, so this year, make it a point to figure out how you can use social media to your best advantage.
If you don’t see your significant other until that evening, why not give them a romantic countdown every hour on the hour? Five hours until you next see them, send them a text that has the number five and something that you love about them. Every hour, count down the time until you show up at their door. This is something that is a little reminder that you care about them, and it also helps you to anticipate the time when you get to get together.
Your facebook status is a good place to let people know where you stand. When Valentine’s Day rolls around, take a moment to change your status and to allow it to reflect how you feel. For example, you could be very blunt and simply state how much you love your significant other, or you could be a little more coy and choose a love quote that really speaks to you. Some people are more humorous and will leave their status as something like, “I like my coffee like I like my women, dark and bitter,” while others will choose something more poetic, like the line “All you need is love,” from the movie Moulin Rouge. Take a moment to find the things that speak to you and your significant other.
Who doesn’t love poetry? When you are dealing with formats like texts, you ‘ll find that your ability to send vast tomes of verse to be quite limited. However, there’s nothing that says that you cannot go line by line. Choose your favorite love poem and send it line by line over the course of the day. On the other hand, if you relish a bit of a personal touch, why not write your own and send it? You can always try to write your own haiku, the celebrated Japanese verse that consists of three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven in the second and five agin in the third.
When you want to send your loved one a romantic text on Valentine’s Day, think about the memories that you share. Where have you gone together, and what do you want to do? See if you can evoke your favorite memories based on a single phrase or sentence. You can also send them a text about where you might like to take them in the future.
There are so many romantic things that you can do, so see what’s out there!
