11 Different Ways to Sound Like a Great Lover

A new Love Month cartoon!

Last week’s cartoon was the first one for Love Month in Psych Central! It included a Vinegar Valentine, and talked about matters of the heart. Maybe it wasn’t the kindest cartoon I’ve ever written…

For any cartoon you enjoy, you’re invited to share it anyplace except Pinterest. (Pinterest grabs the whole image, which is not cool. Facebook just uses thumbnails, which IS cool.) And thank you for sharing every week on Facebook and Twitter.

It’s February 2016, Leap Year, and it’s Love Month in Psych Central! To celebrate the occasion, I’ll be posting a cartoon each week in February on the many different ways to look at love.

Now, today’s cartoon is about TV. And the love of, and in, TV. You know I’m all about TV. Fans of Vintage Television will enjoy it the most.

11 New Ways to Sign a Valentine Card or Love Letter

Buying romantic DVDs is cool and all, but because it’s important to express your love in every way possible, I’ve gone one step further:  I’ve put together a collection of salutations you may use to sign Valentine’s cards in the most  interesting, intriguing,  and memorable ways possible. Be the lover you were meant to be!

  • Your ever-loving, (Dracula!)
  • I kiss you,
  • With anticipation,
  • Thinking sweet thoughts of you,
  • Adieu! take care of yourself; and, I entreat you, write!  (Jane Austen) (works for texting, too)
  • Until the end of time,
  • Yours till the chocolate chips,
  • With purest love,
  • Hugs and kisses on all your pink parts (Christian Slater)
  • All my lovin’
  • My heart belongs to you always,

And a quotation that made me say wow:

  • Then I did the simplest thing in the world. I leaned down… and kissed him. And the world cracked open. ~Agnes de Mille
