Roses are red, violets are blue, God only knows how much I love you! You are an unselfish, amazing, sexy woman, and I am lucky to have you. I thank god for you everyday!! Love,

Dustin Zeisberg


You smell nice. I think we'll still be friends even after we've seen all the Battlestars. We'll find something else to do, maybe play Puzzle Fighter. I'll even bring you more broccoli, because I like you.


Hampden House

Happy Valentines Day!!
Love and many face-kisses!!








Sarah Cosden

I'm so glad were together again for Valentine's Day. Love you!

Happy Valentine's Day, Dorsey Family

Noel Danger

I think you're the neatest thing since sliced bread. And you know how much I love carbs, so . . . that's really saying somethin'. Happy Valentine's Day! Tonight, let's order a pizza (for delivery . . . wink).

Beth Action

My beautiful wife Dana Dorsey

The greatest woman in the world.
I love you.


i love you!


Dear Bernie,

We were destined to be together. We were high school sweethearts. I guess I knew all along you would be my life-long partner. I am lucky to have spent so much time with you. I realize that what we have will last a lifetime. We have been married for 51 glorious years. We have two great children and three great grandchildren. You are my everything. I love you more and more each day. Happy Valentine's Day.
Your wife,



I hope you're the one.



I heart 8===> you


Dearest Darling,

While sitting down in deep consideration, your occupation and your courtesy has compelled me so strongly that I cannot resist your love, for you have done something to me that no other human being has ever done. You have put a burning fire into my soul that has rushed to my heart like a mighty rushing wind. So you can see, my darling, without your love light to guide me, I am lost. For now and forever I love you. Happy Valentine's Day.

Ralph Benton Jr.

*Justin & Kelsey*

There's no other love, so trustworthy & true. I'm honored cupid picked me, to love both of you! HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! (TWEAK & BUG) "2001-til death" <3 <3 <3
Love u always,

Mommy : )

Jim Becker

Sweetness . . . the 22 years we have shared have been the best part of my life because you were always there beside me. You didn't leave when I was at my worst. You stayed and help me to heal. And somehow I found the strength to be there for you when you needed me. Can I find the words to do our love justice?

To my dearest soulmate I love you.
You touch these tired eyes of mine,
And map my face out line by line,
And somehow growing old feels fine,
I listen close for I'm not smart,
You wrap you thoughts in works of art,
And they're hanging on the walls of my heart,
I may not have the softest touch,
I may not say the words as such,
And though I may not look like much....
I'm yours -
And though my edges may be rough,
And never feel I'm quite enough,
It may not seem like very much,
But I'm yours !
You healed these scars over time,
Embraced my soul,
You loved my mind,
You're the only angel in my life,
And I'm yours.

Jeffrey Clagett

Joey and Bubba

Happy Valentine's Day to my two favorite dudes! Love ya!


Laura Liz

You are the Lugi to my Mario.

Lovey D


For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.



I have my heart on for you.



How I was able to hold onto you I'll never know, but I am a lucky girl to still have you in my life! I love you so much.


Amethyst Brown

I'm glad we made it this far to see V-day. I truly love you with all my heart, so i feel it would be fitting for me to ask you to be my wife?



I love you!
I can't believe this is our third Valentine's together! Not to "toot" my own horn, but I couldn't be happier with things, we really do work well as a couple & I'm super excited & happy to call you my girlfriend, my lover & my best friend.
When I look into your green eyes I still melt, I get lost in all the amazing feelings when we are together, we connect on such an amazing level . . . you truly are my Home Sweet Home!
Happy Valentine's Day!



I love you more than I love pork chops.



I'm happy to be in our new home with you and look forward to all our lives will offer us together. I'm excited to see you after work and the warmth we share is warmer than any fireplace hearth. Your patience and commitment are not forgotten. I love you, Game-genie for Photoshop.



When I saw your face
I became a prisoner of your eyes
And I would do just anything
To stay and be with you.

your LeatherRebel


I love you more than my feeble rambling can express. You are a wonderful wife and mother.
I love you.


My Doodle says says he likes me best!
Sugar Beet ...'cause Im so sweet!


You are my valentine, Mommy! My best friend and my guardian angel. I love you.

Annabel Fogleman

What is love? Those who don't like it call it responsibility. Those who play with it call it a game. Those who don't have it call it a dream. Those who understand it call it destiny. And me, I call it you cooda. I love you, I miss you and can't wait to be in your arms. Happy Valentine's Day! Love, your Sweet Samone . . .


You took my heart & kept it safe,
Now don't tell me that its starting to break
I toss & turn & try to keep it together,
But I can't help these tears from falling down my face...
I'm in love with an angel, a lovely angel
He holds my heart as if to guard it for a lifetime,
He tells me he loves me,
And oh man I love him,
I would never do anything to harm you,
Now I know I have your heart too,
I place it within my chest to beat aside of mine
Whenever I'm missing you I hold on to it
and know that everything is going to be just fine,
No longer am I scared no longer am I with doubt,
For I know that you too are in love with me as much as I am in love with you.
We're in good hands
There isn't anything to be afraid of,
Because if you know me as well as I know you, you'll know that I will never hurt you.
I'll always stay true
and I will love you for all eternity
Love, your wife,



Happy Valentine's. To my sweetheart: I love you and happy almost five 5 years! Love,


Jason the Handsome

It just keeps getting better every day. I love you so much and am so excited for everything that lies ahead. Big changes, big love. All my love forever.

Nicole the Wife

Ash St. Garden

Oh Free Farm, you so fine.
You so fine you blow my mind.
Go Free Farm.



I'm so happy I get to spend Valentine's Day with someone as perfect as you. I love you!


Happy Valentines Day, Charles my sweetheart.
We were together as teens, separated by adulthood, and reunited 28 years later and have been happy in love over these past 3 years. As we plan our wedding this June 2010, I love you now as I did then, and with each passing year. You mean so much more to me, you are forever my one and only true love.
Your loving wife to be, Niece.
Happy Valentine's Day.

Happy Valentine's Day Nea Nea boo. I love you from your stinky, I will be home soon.

Brandon Liverpool

My love Diana

We might be apart for this Valentine's Day, but you are in my heart always. I love you so much. When you get home I just want you to know that you are the only woman I want to spend the rest of life with. You are truly my soulmate. I miss you so much.

Love forever,

Joe Miller, Sr.

Nick Barna

You are the wub.

Olivia June

G -

So very happy. . . .



AY YO. Thanks for being my sweetest friend, for knowing me best, for being right there beside me. I might go away, but I'll always come back.


Mr. R

Happy Valentine's Day! You are a really great boyfriend . . . very patient and you do things with me that no other straight guy would do with me (such as go to the ballet or go to see New Moon), which is why I know you really really like me. I'm glad we have such a good relationship. You are my favorite Peter Parker look-alike.


Hapsy Baletimes Daze!

Chris and Liz Sheehan

Missing my far away love. See you within 3 months.

To Ellen, my lil' valentine,


Tony Cho

Dearest Dr. McDadddy (WBD)

I can't believe we've made it this far without me sabotaging things. I adore you to no end and look forward to sharing lots more of myself with you. I'm so thankful I found you and soooo happily yours.



I'll never forget paying very close attention to the way your voice sounded when we first met. I thought you were so unobtainable then, so cool and out of reach even in friendship. Now I think that you're a super messy person who takes a ridiculously long time to accomplish things and won't try anything new, not even good tea. Or allowing me to take off your pants. But you're still the most lyrical and fascinating person I know; you love every creature in this universe, and there was nothing easier for me than falling in love with you. Now knowing your strengths and flaws, I'd do it again in a second. Thanks for teaching me how to be patient, generous, and most important, creative.
Let us never stop making art. After all, art is love, and what better to make than that?



So excited we'll be on the same continent this Valentine's Day. Love you!



Hugs, kisses, and smiles the time we have together is worth while. I try to hide it through denial but I cannot. My love for you is strong and is always. I love you!



I Love you Honey. You are my best friend. Happy Valentine's Day



I love you so much babe, and you mean the world to me. I just hope you'll be my valentine for now and forever. I love you.


my boohbahlou

thank you for making these last three years so amazing! to many more with the number one love of my life.

lil numbah two


You are the cheese to my macaroni. I know you think Valentines day is just a day where guys are committed to spending a hootch of money on their significant other, and it's true it is. But you are my best friend in the whole world, and money can't buy that. So cheers to you and smoke a few! Happy Valentine's Day. Love,


Hugs, kisses, and smiles the time we have together is worth while. I try to hide it through denial but I cannot. My love for you is strong and is always. I love You!

Storm Lee

Happy Valentine's Day Storm

You know who


Your smile lights me up like I'm drinking live ammunition, so do us all a favor and don't light any matches in my throat.


Shani (SAM)

You are the most ridiculous, silly, beautiful, lovable woman I have ever met, and I'm so lucky to have found you. Your never-ending desire to go to haunted houses and your never-ending fear once inside confuses and entertains me. You have THE most amazing smile and laugh combo. That's why I love tickling you so much (but also cuz I can't keep my hands off you ;-)). I miss you every second we're apart and cherish every moment we share. I love you and can't wait to share our third Valentine's Day together. :-x :-*

Bear Bear (Miguel)

My best friends

Thank you girls for showing me so much love. I am so happy to have you as my friends, and I don't want to forget the boys, Michael and Vladimir. I love my Colombian Guatemala Crew.

Rosalyn the Mexican

Kristin and Frankie

God blessed me with the birth of both of you. Dec. 28, 1998, and March 13, 2000, are the two most joyous days of my life. I wasn't there for the longest time because of my addictions. I'll always be an addict, but because of your unconditional love for me, my only active addiction is my love of my children . . . an addiction we all can live with. :)
Your Daddy,
Frank Handley
P.S. Happy Valentine's Day


I just want to wish you a wonderful Valentine's Day. You are the love of my life. Words can't express how much you mean to me, and I can't wait until I'm in your arms again. Also, WILL YOU MARRY ME? I love you!
Love, your fiance,

Jason W. Green

Ms. Vicky,

Happy Valentine's Day! Thank you so much for all the thoughtful things you do for us.
Lots of love and respect,

Melody, Allen, Jill, and Tiger

Cynthia Abdul-Rauf

You are my homegirl, my lover, my companion, wife, my soulmate.
Love always,

Hubby Bilal


The one who keeps my heart beating. As each day passes, I love you more and more with all my heart and soul. And on Cupid's special day, I hope this message further engraves my love in your heart.
Love your husband-to-be,


My good friend Von

You have been my friend for a very long time. We met back in Sept. '98 and ever since then you have been a friend. Your ear was always there when I needed someone to listen to me. You were there for me. You had my back. And when the crap hit the fan, you held me down, like a ride or die chick. And that's what you are, a friend til the END. It wasn't until a few years ago, I noticed that I was feeling you and wanted a more developed relationship with you. It wasn't until recently that I realized that everything I wanted in a woman was right in my face. Smart, responsible, classy, incredibly beautiful, and a terrific mother. Always putting your priorities first. I loved you as a friend and now I want to love you as more than a friend. You are a life changer. You bring the best out of a person and you bring the best out of me. So here's my love to you before Valentines Day. I'll see you soon.

Incarcerated but not for long.

Rob F.

I wake up every morning excited to share a new day with you, and my time away from you is spent daydreaming about what we could or will be doing next. Although we've done so much together throughout the years, I can't help but want to experience so much more with you. Every day is a new adventure, and I couldn't be happier that we're side by side as they pass. 2010 has already been amazing, but I know it's just going to get better every day. Here's to many more years of adventures, thousands more smiles, and more wine to drink than you could shake a stick at!

tina, i love you so much baby. your smile melts my heart. to this day i still can't take my eyes off of you. i'll love you till the end of time.

They do not love that do not show their love.
The course of true love never did run smooth.
Love is a familiar. Love is a devil. There is no evil angel but Love.

When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled
because you knew.

Michael Brown


Hey, Brainless! My ear was never damaged-I heard you loud and clear! So, why do birds suddenly appear? No matter what-or what does not-thanks for all my teasers to date . . . and the teasers yet to come!

I love you from the meeting you in the past, your love has filled my heart with an exposing of joy. Happy Valentine, myfriend, mylife.

Good Samaritan, A.A.

Everyday we're conscious, God is more than enough.
My THANKS TO GOD and THANKS TO YOU that you are
here this year are beyond believing,
beyond thinking, beyond speaking and beyond being.
I give you the highest blessings of all time
that as this year, and your life unfolds EXACTLY
as you would most like it to, you are also able
to use your great intention to bless and heal ALL
of Maryland, Minnesota, all the states in between
and the whole world many times over.
I will remember along with you that worrying about tomorrow robs the blessing of today.
I know that I know that I know in faith that the
work we do is good, perfect, whole, and complete,
that you have inspired me to become the best
person I've ever been in my life for you are
my muse of muses and You Are My A.ngel of A.ngels



I love you very much, sir. You are a beautiful person. I appreciate the relationship we've built and am excited about our future together. Happy Valentines Day, my sexy man.



Dear Mr. JFX:

It has been nothing but awesome since you stopped traffic to get my number. I can't wait to see what is next.




I can't stand living under the same roof as you and not being allowed to touch you.



I love you!



i love asparagus


Shanna Banana Ingrodi

Pour something, Pour something, Anything!
I'll drink most everything,
Give me a shooooo-oooot

I have the most fun with you, glad you're my sister. Happy Valentine's Day!

Michelle Ingrodi


It is absolutely no surprise to me that three and half years after we met in that elevator that we are still together. I knew that very first night that what we have together is special. What does surprise me is how my love for you continues to grow and get stronger. It surprises me that you love me at my worst and fully support me even when you told me from the beginning that something would be a mistake. It surprises me how much fun we have together and the amount of trouble we manage to get into. But, what completely blows my mind is what an incredible man you are. How even during some of the hardest moments of your life last year you still managed to be sweet and kind to me-even in your darkest hours you always made our love your priority. I love you with all of my heart, and although I am a free spirit, a very "no set plans" kind of lady, one thing I know without a doubt is that my future is with you.


Daddy Bear

I love you so much. BRAWWWRRRRR!!!

Baby Bear


You are the love of my life! Thank you for making me the happiest person in the world and for making the last 10 years feel like we just met yesterday. In the words of Helen Keller, "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart." Thanks for feeling me. I love you!


Shauna Allen

To look back over the last 3 yrs, knowing all the things we have been through, I feel blessed to still have you by my side. You have the world's biggest heart but there's only room for me, and for that I thank you. I strive to be a better me because I have you. You're my best friend and I love you unconditionally. I know that our future only gets brighter from here. We have been through the storm and proven that we can stand the many tests that came our way. You are my forever and I love you more and more with everyday that passes.

Britney Kristin Morsell, where would I be without you? You're my everything. You have loved me unconditionally, showing me what love really means. After almost a decade and all my bullshit, you're still in my corner. You have stayed by my side when any other female would have left. You've held me down when there was no one else I could turn to. Regardless of where we stood or what the situation. You've rode it out with me in the worst of situations, backing me right or wrong. You are everything I need, everything I want. You are my best friend and my lover. Babe, I love you and I'd love nothing more than to spend the rest of my life with you. Britney Kristin Morsell, will you marry me?

Dear Bug,

Four years ago I would have never guessed that night you pushed me up against the rowhouse across the street and kissed me like I have never been kissed before would be the first of four years of great kisses. Happy Valentine's Day.


To my Queen, Q.D.E.,

I smoke, have two cats, and am not a baller, but I long to be included in your dreams. MY truth: You complete me.


Love Griffin,

BABY you taught me what love truly is and I love you for it, now, forever, and always. "Will you be my valentine" is such an understatement, so I'll ask will you be my valentine forever. In other words, will you marry me? Be my valentine as Mrs. Marvin Clark? I love you and miss you very much!

Marvin Clark

My love
My life
My wife
I love you
Happy V-day
Keep smiling

Happy Valentine's Day Sue G

My Aunt Lil

Happy Valentine's Day
