I have a question, and it has come after numerous little arguements over the same thing…every holiday. If I give someone a card, anyone, I write something in it besides To ____, and Love ___. If I am writing in a card for my SO, of course I write a paragraph or so inside the card. NOW….I don’t expect him to write a paragraph of mushy-gushy, but I would like SOMETHING other than Dear _____, Love, _____.
I’ve had this “talk” with him for the past few years..and sometimes, he write, and other times, he doesn’t. He thinks since he always tells me how much he loves me, how much he wants to marry me, etc that writing in a card is pointless. I think he’s being lazy…He says he gets “writer’s block”. My hiney!! Do your men write in your cards? I am so curious!

My Fiance and I don’t really exchange cards – we see each other often enough to tell the other person how we feel,and we aren’t sentimental enough to deal with going out and buying a card.

It depends on the occasion. also how long we have been together. when we first started we would write essays in the cards. Now, every once and a while We will write something but it is mostly Dear, Love me l

My Fiance doesn’t do cards unless it’s me forcing him to send one to his dad on a birthday or something so I’m not really sure.

We write each other love letters on at least one card occasion a year, usually more than that. I don’t know when my next letter will be though – could be Valentines, Easter, anniversary of the day we met, my birthday – or none of the above.

He usually just writes. “I love you” in the card and will sometimes sign it with my pet name for him. But I can alway tell he spends a lot of time picking out the perfect card, so I can’t hold it against him. And tbh, I write in my cards to friends and family, but not so much in the ones to him.

Be thankful your SO gets your cards! Darling Husband doesnt “do” cards. He thinks they’re a waste. He did get me a card for our anniversary, but only because he knew that if he didnt, I’d be annoyed! THe only time he’s written anyhting long in a card was when he gave me a card/letter on our wedding day.

Depends on who it’s too. To relatives he only writes Love (name). For weddings he writes one congrats sentence (name). To me, depending on the card he writes Love (name) or a one liner or a whole paragraph. Depends on the occassion, who it’s to and the card. He thinks cards are pointless but I appreciate that he does them anyways, even if he doesn’t write more than his name. Mostly because he works so much that even stopping to pick up a card means he has to go out of his way and I appreciate that. A lot.
