Funny Valentine Poems for Your Girlfriend
Time and again, women fall for guys who are able to make them laugh...
by Paula Hines
In surveys about relationships, women often place a sense of humor as one of the most desirable qualities in a mate—sometimes even higher than looks or money. You can win her heart if you give her a reason to smile. So why not write her humorous or funny Valentine poems?
A funny Valentine poem can also be romantic. In fact, most humor helps people see the way things really are rather than some idealistic representation of our relationship; it pokes holes in the unrealistic fantasies of life and helps us to appreciate what we actually have.
Obviously, humor can cross the line and become offensive; so be wary of certain topics that she may be sensitive about. For example, you may think she looks beautiful and can’t understand why she complains about her weight—but just because you don’t think she has a weight problem doesn’t mean its ok to joke about it. Try to see things from her point of view and only make light of the kinds of things you know she’ll have a sense of humor about.
You can write about some of the unique aspects of your relationship and some of the silly quirks that you both have. For example if you find yourself always waiting on her to finish getting ready before you can go out:
Jennifer, how I love our dates!
But how long must you make me wait
For you to finish doing your hair?
When will you realize that I simply don’t care
About your highlights, curls or shine?
I’m only happy that your mine.
She’ll smile knowing that you are gently teasing her, yet confident that you love her all the same. It’s something she’ll show her friends and keep for years. After all, getting a poem written especially for you is a rare and precious thing.
You can hand write the poem in a store bought Valentine’s Day card, or pay a calligrapher to write it on beautiful paper. Along with flowers, chocolates, perfume and other traditional gifts, a poem will thrill her. The fact that it’s a funny Valentine Poem will melt her heart.
If you aren’t sure where to start, just sit down with a notebook and a pencil and start writing your ideas. You’ll be surprised how quickly the words fall into place once you feel comfortable putting your thoughts on paper. Be prepared to revise your poem a few times until you’re happy. Once it is finished, don’t look back. There’s no such thing as perfection in writing, after all.
