Check out Liam Neeson’s version of Cupid. While his version misses the mark on love and romance, it’s good for a laugh or two.

And if you want something a bit more traditional, here’s a classic Valentine’s poem:

“The rose is red, the violet’s blue,
The honey’s sweet, and so are you.
Thou art my love and I am thine;
I drew thee to my Valentine:
The lot was cast and then I drew,
And Fortune said it shou’d be you.”
~ Gammer Gurton’s Garland, a 1784 collection of English nursery rhymes

Be My Valentine

Hearts, Joy, Love!

The 5 Love Languages and 25+ Love Language Ideas

When it comes to love languages (the way a person prefers to receive love and affection), people differ in how they receive and communicate their love to others. This is why it’s not unusual for someone to complain that their significant other doesn’t show them any affection or love – they’re miscommunicating it!

While some people prefer spending time just cuddling with one another on the couch, others may enjoy a handwritten note to show how much they care.

Doing something sweet for someone you care about can be meaningful, but sometimes it’s hard to realize that the way you say “I love you” might differ with what your significant other or child had in mind.

Our friends at FTD have put together a helpful guide on the five love languages (Acts of Service, Words of Affirmation, Physical Touch, Receiving Gifts, and Quality Time), as well as 25+ love language ideas that you can use on yourself, a significant other or child.

5 Quotes about Love and Marriage

Try making your significant other breakfast in bed if they prefer acts of service, or writing your child a nice note if they enjoy words of affirmation. These and others can be found below, so you can find out what love language fits both you and your loved ones.

Helping with chores and other odd jobs speaks to someone who values ‘Acts of Service.’

Love Languages - Acts of Service

There’s nothing more meaningful than saying “I love you” to people whose love language is ‘Words of Affirmation.’

Love Languages - Words of Affirmation

Human contact is the ultimate form of communication for those whose love language is ‘Physical Touch.’

Love Languages - Physical Touch

People whose love language is ‘Receiving Gifts’ see a gift as a symbol of someone’s love and therefore crave thoughtful and meaningful presents.

People who speak the ‘Quality Time’ love language want nothing more than your undivided attention.

Funny Things Kids Think About Love

funny things kids say about love - love is

We all know what love is, don’t we? Well, maybe. When asked what they thought about love, here are several funny love quotes by kids and what they think.

    • Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.

Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.

Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.

Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.

Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss.

XOXO – Kisses and Hugs

Love is hugging. Love is kissing. Love is saying no sometimes.

Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.

Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.

Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken.

Love is when mommy sees daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.

Hope this made you smile.

Hearts, Joy, Love!
