Joe Palumbo

I never thought I'd find a milk-hating, Apple-loving, wine-drinking, Twilight-bashing Italian artist who can deal with my Sex and the City-loving, garlic-eating, grammar-policing self. I'm so happy I was wrong. Love you!

Katie Blaha

Dear Mr. Eric Pugh,

You are dumb and I love you.
Your favorite (and only) friend,

Becca Belleville

Clyde

To the one who holds my hand, does my laundry, walks my dog, and wipes my tears. To the one who never stops thinking of me, cleans the bunny bed, screws up the covers, and gets silly tattoos. I had given up on a "nice guy" only to find you stalking me. You're so cute. You're so cute. You're so cute.

Bonnie

Mollie Patrolly

You leave paw prints on my heart.

Baby Cakes and Love Monkey, forever and a day!

Cynthia

Since November I have experienced what it means to tap into deep inner feelings I thought were beyond my capability. This feeling is as a spirital awakening. The intensity only grows with each passing moment. I am so blessed and there is a reason we came together at life's crossroads. It is difficult to put in words my heartfelt feelings. So to sum it up in the life's universal phase.
I Luvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv You!
Be MY valentine

Brian

Mason, my true love. Since you came into my life I've never been more free, more happy, or more content about loving another person. Our connection is pure, unconditional, real. You've given me things I've never had before, feelings I've never felt before, and I don't want it to end. I love you more than you know, more than I can express in words. I will never leave you, always by your side, till my time on this Earth is up. I love you, Mason. I love you.

Jazz

To my Vanilla Voice, my very first choice,
I miss your everything, oh, but there's that wedding ring . . . getting in the way of my perfect day . . . I stand by . . . I lie . . . without you I die . . . I need your everything . . . EXODUS- Y he went there I'll never know . . . explained in detail where we shouldn't go . . . a simple taste every now and then, would make us violate at least two of the 10.

Thundercat

Dean F (My Chump)

Kat Williams (no relation to the comedian)

Thank you for always sharing my cynicism, love of inappropriate jokes, and derision of consumerist holidays. Let's commemorate the day that St. Valentine was publicly beheaded by watching horror movies, drinking cheap booze, and quietly mocking happy couples on the street.

Te quiero mucho!

Schmoops

Mommy and Daddy

Our first Valentine's Day. I love you Mommy April and Daddy Roy.

Laila Miller

You are worn and duct-taped, wheels bald, and bearings filthy. And even as I stumble, like a runner losing ground downhill, you move me forward. You make mere walking laughable. I love you so hard, roller skates! Shoes can get bent!

q.g.t.

Jen

Love you! You are my friend, my co-parent, and my lover. 2010 will be the best year yet!

Steve F

I enjoy being with you and waking up everyday with you next me. I LOVE YOU more then words can express. YOU'RE A REAL MAN and the love of my life. HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY BABY.

UR HEART

Love Conquers All Take Two!!!!!!

As you can tell this is our second year of sharing our free love. This year is an extra special one because we will officially become husband and wife June 2010. We have a simple message. Love really does conquer all!!!!!! Since our last free love we have been through so much, but our love has become stronger with each passing day. We send this message to everyone one who is falling in love or who has already fallen. If you both TRULY love one another, cannot picture your life without this person, willing to go through whatever it takes to make it work, then we say to you no matter what Real Love Conquers All. Let us not forget that without God, we can do nothing!!!God has given us this beautiful gift of true love so we put HIM first, us second, then everything else just falls right into place. Thank you for allowing us to share our special love with you for another year. See you next year, and remember LOVE CONQUERS ALL!!!!!!!!!

On March 13, 2010,
I'll take a vow to be more than a friend,
For on this day a lot will change,
My stroll, my style, and my last name.
So believe me luv these words are true,
My heart skips a beat when I'm holding you,
Keep these words close to your heart
Trust and believe we'll never part.
I love you, Lawrence.
Always,
The future Mrs. Law,

"I promise you a love that's true forever and a day, I promise you a hand to hold each step along the way. I promise to make time for US to dream and do and dare, to never take for granted all the ways you show you care . . . I promise you a friendship that grows deeper through the years, I promise to be gentle with your hopes, your joys, and your fears. I promise you will all my heart-with every day I live-to share with you the deepest, truest love I have to give". I love you with everything that I am, and I can't wait until 11-11-11 to become your wife!!

Danyelle Shannon

I love you with all my heart. That is why on this Valentine's Day I want to give my heart to you . . . Danyelle would you spend your forever with me? That's right this is not a misprint, I want you to be my wife!!!

The one you fell in love with 5 years ago

Stephanie

I never imagined that I could find someone so perfect to spend the rest of my life with. And yet, now over seven years ago, it happened. Somehow, through all realms of grace, chance, and destiny, the paths of our lives crossed on that one fateful night. "Lit" from the very beginning, our relationship has brought true happiness to my life, and I hope, to yours. Each morning I wake up blessed anew to start the day with you by my side. You have carried me through the hardest times of my life, and brought me to the best times of my life. And now, all these years later, we are less than a month away from welcoming our first child to the world. Everything is changing, and everything is wonderful. We have so much to look forward to. The world is laid out before us, and every day we take that first step together, hand in hand. I love you. I always have, and I always will. Love,

Nicholas

Stan Sharko

I am so looking forward to spending Valentine's Day in Bawlmer with you. I'd rather be in the Bahamas, but you can't have everything. . . .
Happy Valentine's Day, baby. I love you-Always and Forever.
And P.S. I loved you first! xoxoxo



Michele Sharko

Toyota

Does logic dictate that an environmental scientist and a union organizer fall in love over bad jokes, good politics, Bottle Rocket and used LPs? Absolutely. Much love from me to you.

Ardison

Amanda Cawthorne

My wife is a very special person; she is the love of my life, and truly my better half. I want her to know I love her more than she will ever know. INFINITY + INFINITY!
Love always,
Your husband,

Andrew

Jesus

I have never felt so happy and loved. Thank you, baby, for surprising me and showing me your love every day. Our life is going to be more complete, now that we are becoming three. I can't wait to have our baby Diana Isabella with us and continue this amazing journey with you. I will always love you, and I truly know that you are the love of my life.

Rosalyn

To my wonderful husband, David Williams, after four years of marriage.
You make me laugh.
You make me smile.
You have been there.
For good times and the bad times.
I would love for you to be my Valentine.
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I will always be
True to you.
Love you.
Your wife,

Betty

Baby Doll,

"Two Hearts Locked in Love"
There was a time in our life where our Love was Locked together in Love.
And there was nothing that could tear us apart.
No matter what.
You are always in my heart.
But as time has gone by you have broken my heart!
And now we are apart.
Of only your Love for me was true.
I would still be with you.
I thought our Love was true.
And there would only be me and you.
But I was wrong.
And now you are gone.
I still Love you!
And I know in your heart that you feel the same way too.
This poem I wrote for you.
I will always have Love for you.
My heart is Locked in Love.
Along with me at M.T.C.
Give me the key so I can be set free.
Unlock my heart.
Now that we're apart.

Happy Valentine's Day, Baby Doll.
Love always,
Your Baby Boy

Laura,

We're coming up on two years together. After all that time, we took the long road. As God is our witness, no one will separate us. Happy Valentine's Day, lovergirl!
OXOXOX,

James

Rockett

You made it possible for me to understand what love really is! I cherish our lives together and I am a better person for knowing you. I feel like the luckiest man in the world! I love you with all of my heart. Thank you.

Tommy

Phaedra Hamlet

The past few years with you have been, to say the least, tumultuous, and if asked to change the experiences for new ones, I would not. For it is the trying times that taught me how to truly love you. t has taught me to appreciate you for your endurance, to admire you for your dedication, praise you for your commitment, and thank you for your sacrifices. Phaedra, you are not my princess, you're my angel, heaven-sent from the beautiful heavens. Thus I adore you and value every day with you. I love you!
Happy Valentine's Day.
Your husband,

Dennis

Trudy

Love the second time around is fantastic. Love is without boundaries and everlasting commitment to each other.
All my love and devotion,

John AKA

Priscilla

I know you love me and you know I love you. What I don't know is what I would do without you. Don't you ever go nowhere. Happy Valentine's Day.
From your husband,

Ninky

Lisa,

I love you and Nevaeh with all my heart. Only you could love me this way. You both are so special to me, and I'll always want, care, and love you.
Always yours,

Michael H.

To my "Angel"

The times spent together can't be replaced while we're apart. I know we talked as friends while together also. Now it's Valentine's Day, when mutual people come to a spot of "Endearment" for a "Special occasion."
Getting to know someone is oh so hard. But we did it with a "Rift" in our "Heart" plus the death of our "Souls." We could have great "Admiration" of "Love" in our "Heart" and "Soul" of our life. We can fill the missing void together, my "Angel."
So my "Majestic Angel" this Valentine's Day can we show our "Real Side?" By that I mean to show the "Love" in our "Hearts," my "Sweetheart."
With this in mind "Hate" won't split us apart, my "Angel." So to a special lady, I'm saying Happy Valentine's Day to my gorgeous Angelic Princess.
By,

Michael Grubbs C.T.P.H.C.

To my special sweetheart, Michael Fryza,
I just wanted to send a little reminder saying that "I love you." You are my best friend and most of all, my soulmate. I "thank" God every day for the many blessings he always throws my way, but the GREATEST blessing of all is the day he sent you into my life! Thank you for everything you do for me but most of all for just being "you." You are very special and dear to me and will always hold a special place near to my heart!! I can't wait til that special day that we recite our vows and start a life together. Have a Happy Valentines Day, babe!!
With all my Love,
Kimmy
P.S. My <3 is filled with many x's and o's especially for you, baby!!

Charles,

Happy Valentines Day!!
I love you so much, baby. ou mean the world to me and we will always be together.
Love always,

Tiffany M.

To Kimberly,

Another Valentine's Day has come again, sweetheart, and I want you to be my valentine again and for the rest of my life. You are the one that makes my day go smoothly. The one that makes my heart beat. Without you, baby, there would be no me. I love you, Kimberly. Happy Valentine's Day and, by the way, happy anniversary, too.
Love,

Max (2010)

My valentine, my daughter.

Roses are red

Valentine and Birthday Girl, Thomasina.
You have changed my life in more ways than you will ever know. It has all been wonderful. I love you, I am proud of you.

Would it be TOO non-meme to ask you to BE MY VALENTINE in the newspaper?

Nikc

Crystal,

God sent me his most beautiful angel that I know in my heart is you. Crystal, I truly love you with all my heart-yesterday, 2-day, 2-morrow, and 4-ever. Happy Valentine's Day, Princess.

Love always,

TJ Ditzel

You've been my Valentine since day one. This year marks seven trips around the sun. You are the booty of my dreams like a neckbone is to collard greens. I was in love with you then, just as I am in love with you now. Happy Valentines Day, Kia, and thanks for seven years of WOW!!!

I love you,

Ervin

Ava J. and Tori

I love the both of u, and happy birthday Tori. To mommy I miss your hugs and kisses, from your boop boop. For being a wonderful friend, lover, and woman, for that i love you. To my princess, i love you for such a beautiful princess.

Boo Boo

Mel

Lately I've been thinking a lot about how many amazing memories I have with you in the last 27 months or so. And I don't even mean our first meeting upstairs at the Ottobar, or how I spent a year wondering when I'd see you again until I finally ran into you at Frazier's (hah, everyone reading this probably thinks we're Baltimore hipster scum).

What I've been thinking about in particular is the crazy amount of first times with you. The extraordinary amount of experiences. The places we've gone, the things we've tried. The drinking and the dancing. The parties we've hosted and all the other ones we've enhanced. We've had $400 dinners at Charleston and we've poured bacon bits on frozen pizzas at 5 in the morning. There have been highs and lows, and we've been through a lot, no doubt. And we've survived it all.

I remain wholly devoted and shamelessly overjoyed. You're still surprising and impressing me on a daily basis. Also, you're the sexiest thing I've ever seen, which is nice. I'm confident that 2010 will be a watershed year for us, my dear. Remember the plans and schematics I mentioned in this very space one year ago? Stay tuned.

Rob

Maddi

I know we don't talk much but you're such a good talker, oh-whoa
Well I know we should take a walk but you're such a fast walker, oh-whoa,
Well alright
I know where I'll be tonight, alright

Oswaldo

Lisa Grunklee

Babe-Happy Valentine's Day! I am so happy to have you in my life. 2010 is going to be a great year!

Love the times we spend together, the sunsets, the trips, the half-times, and thanks for eating my food!
Love you baby!

"In real love you want the other person's good.
In romantic love you want the other person"

To Mi Amor!

I love you baby!!

"Don't love me because I am beautiful, for I am beautiful only because you love me"

Our meeting was more than fate.
God knew you were my soul mate.
Your timing is never wrong.
Now we share a bond so strong.
Our time together means so much.
Each moment intensifies my need to touch.
Your love has reached my deepest soul.
I am longing for you to daily hold.
May our love and strength continuously grow.
Forever, LOVE, STRENGTH, and PASSION to each show.

Pastor Mark Johnson

It's been a long time since we have been friends, but I am glad to have met up with you again. I want you to know that since high school I have held a special place for you in my heart and held you on a pedestal that I am proud to see that you still stand on. I think that you are the epitome of a good man, and although I am yours in my hopes and dreams, any woman would be blessed to have your love. I am eternally grateful to have had you smile that beautiful smile at me. If I have to wait another 8 years to be the recipient of such a wonderful gift from God, I still consider myself blessed. I am so very proud and excited for the man that you have become and I wish you peace and blessings in all of your future. I love you, I miss you, and I adore you.

God Bless

A.J.

Asshole,

I will never regret getting into the thick of things with you for the last year. It was one hell of a ride . . .

So thank you. For everything. I just wanted to tell you that.

Happy Valentine's Day, hon.

Susan Smith

Mama, I love you more than you can possibly even imagine. I miss you every single day and I think that you are the most excellent mama. Here is your Valentine haiku:

Newark, Ohio
Is where you are without me
How do we survive?

I LOVE YOU

Baby I love you and thank you for being who you are and loving me for who I am. I pray that God continue to bless you.

Hannah-Love

Mademoiselle,

You are a wonderful, talented, thoughtful, caring, stabilizing force in my life and I want you to know how loved you are, using as many adjectives as possible. You helped make the past year a triumph, and I look forward to many more joyful and fantastic years with you by my side.

I don't believe in celebrating Valentine's Day per se, but this is a free message, I live in America, and I love you!

And thank you for offering that free bike to me, too-I'm glad I took you up on that. I know, right? All my love. xoxo

Dave

Happy 30th Birthday and Happy Valentine's Day, too!!!!

I wake filled with thoughts of you. Your portrait and the intoxicating evening which we spent yesterday have left my senses in turmoil.
Until tommorrow mio dolce amor, a thousand kisses; but give me none in return, for they set my blood on fire.

My Heart will always be there for you, truly. Everyone can change and I have for the better.

Happy Valentine's Day! Regardless of what we may think about each other, the love remains strong (to me at least). I hope I will remain in your heart, mind and soul. I love you . . . always will. You're forever my soul mate.

The one who REALly loves you

Sharif

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Laura

Funny Little Frog

Be my valentine and I'll overlook the fact that you bought couscous salad from the prepared food counter at Whole Foods and tried to pass it off as homemade. Seriously, that violates the very spirit of a collaborative dinner party. Anyway, be mine and we'll just pretend like that ugly little episode never happened.

I miss you terribly. You're the love of my life. You're my nemesis.

Muffin
