    Hi,

    I have noticed that even with E cards they either go to one extreme or the other. They are either totally romantic or cynical and sour grapey. I am all for people who want to send a romantic card. I dont hate Valentines day I just want to find a card that isnt either wildly inappropriate or sounding slightly depressed or bitter. Have any of you had this observation?

    I notice that yeh, but Im also of the opinion that people who would want to send/recieve a 'nice' or unique valentines card, don't wait until valentines do to do something special

    I have found some humorous ones. Last year, I sent mey best friend one with a woman holding a bow, arrow cocked and ready. It said,
    "Move over cupid. I'll get my own man!" I thought it was cute.

    Well in this case ,I have people I would like to remember who would appreciate a card but most of them seem to not quite fit the bill.

    Find a blank one and write something mushy in it.

    don't get me wrong, I indulge in the festivities as much as anyone else :wink:

    I just think Valentines day has become way too commercialised now, cheesy and to the point is pretty much all there is anymore I think!

    It'd be cool if card manufacturers made Valentine's cards for recent ex's something along the lines of

    I know we're apart
    You ran off with that tart
    I still miss you a lot
    Hope you die of knob rot

    The one and only Valentines card I got was last year. It said on the front:

    I saw this card, and it reminded me of you.

    Then on the inside it read:

    It's over six inches long and stays up for ages! :biggrin1:

    Wasn't really all that romantic...bitch.

    That's almost as endearing as the "unforgettabubble" jingle in the Boring Book thread.

    Love 'em.

    My favorite card said on the front, "I dream of you every night,..."
    Inside, "roasting on a spit in hell."
