Valentine Cards for Gay Women

by JoHarrington

Ready to declare your undying love for the lady of your dreams? February 14th is the traditional time to do it. Pick out a lesbian Valentine card and go for it!

Whether you are in a relationship or plucking up the courage to ask her out, then a St Valentine's Day card will be needed. Choosing the perfect one might be the beginning of something big and life-changing; or it might earn you brownie points on this special day.

There are plenty of Valentine's Day cards for lesbians. Some romantic, some cute, some humorous, some cheeky. I've collected a whole range together to help you pick out the best one for your lady.

And if you are confessing your feelings for the first time, good luck!

I Love You: Three Little Words for St Valentine's Day

You love her madly, but does she know? February 14th is the day when everyone is wondering if they'll receive a card.

Valentine's Day can be as nerve-wracking as it is romantic.  It's the time when you serve your heart on a plate, and hope that it's received with tenderness.

For those women in long-term relationships, the going is a little easier. You're merely adding momentum to your commitment.  But true courage is required for those asking out their crush on February 14th.

Will she love you too?  Could this be the beginning of a life-long partnership?  The pair of you, hand in hand, until the end of your days.

You'll never know unless you ask.  Worse case scenario is that she says no.  You'll have lost nothing but that initial hope (no-one says that you can't carry on wooing her). 

Regardless of whether this is a new love - heady in its passion and desire - or a well matured vintage love, grown even richer with the years, then the sentiment is the same.  How will you write 'I Love You' on your St Valentine Day's card?   Will it be with poetry, flowery prose, an honest outpouring of your feelings, or those three words simply put?

Whichever way you jump, it will all need to begin with choosing the card.  Let's see if we can help you out with that one.

Ask Her to Marry You on Valentine's Day

For some lesbian couples, you're a long way past that initial 'I really fancy you and will you go out with me?' 

February 14th is also a traditional day to ask her to marry you.  If you're lucky enough to live in an enlightened area, where same sex marriage is a legal possibility, then why not?  It is one way to nudge the romantic notions beyond her expectations.

Or perhaps you could just moot the idea with a card like that to the right.  It puts the question out there and you may gauge the rest from her reaction.

Valentine Card for a Lesbian Wife

The commitment is made and the romance remains strong.

Your Valentine may not be a relative stranger upon whom your hopes and dreams are fixed. But the lovely bride right next to you in the marital bed.  There are Valentine cards for you too.

This one is rather sweet. It has a classy vintage paper overlay depicting two brides. Inside the verse - which may be altered to one of your own - reads:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I married you
And... WOW!

Which probably sums it it up nicely from where you're gazing in lovelorn wonder.

Love Poetry for a Lesbian Valentine's Day Card

There is a great tradition of gay women writing poetry for their lovers. It's your turn to contribute a verse; and it will be fabulous.

Lesbians practically invented love poetry!  At least some of the oldest romantic verses in the world were penned by Sappho; and that passionate Greek lady was not writing them for the male of the species.

Born on the Isle of Lesbos, whose people were called Lesbians, it is her poetry which lent its name to all examples of woman and woman love thereon.

'...she honored you as like unto a goddess,
was joyous most with your singing.

Now she shines forth among the women of Lydia,
as when the sun goes down, the rosy-fingered
Moon

Outshining all the stars...'

That's how Sappho honored her Atthis.  If you can't do better, then I'm sure that she won't mind you nicking it for your card!  But, to my mind, the best poetry of all is that which comes from the heart, with its subject as the recipient.  Even if you're no Sappho in talent, you'll more than make up for that with the romance of it being an original.

Being St Valentine's Day, the first two lines are given to you already: 'Roses are red, violets are blue...'  Where can you go from there?

Roses are red, violets are blue,
I first fell in love, when I kissed you.

Roses are red, violets are blue,
The colors of my world are found in you.

Roses are red, violets are blue,
Have I told you today that I love you?

Or break out of the mould and write your feelings, as they spill from your heart.  Those are the greatest lines of all.  But if you're still floundering for the words, then there are plenty of famous lesbian love poems from which to gain inspiration, or copy word for word!

According to Wikipedia, it's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epic_of_... - first version 18th century BC!

I might be stretching the era a little, but it's definitely some of the most ancient. You have got me thinking though - what is the eldest love poetry in the world?

Paul on 01/23/2013

I had no idea that this was the origin of love poetry!
