Struggling to write a sincere Valentine's Day card? We can help!

While Valentine's Day can feel a bit much at times (thanks, consumerism!) - it's also a great opportunity to reflect and show the important people in your life how much you care about them. Since lockdown measures were put into place last Spring, feelings of loneliness have increased dramatically.

While we are arguably more connected than ever thanks to our devices - social distancing has significantly increased feelings of isolation. Checking in on your friends and family members, or writing a thoughtful letter to your significant other, can go a long way to make them feel more connected and loved.

Writing sincere messages to friends and partners can be daunting. You might be thinking to yourself: "What if my letter is corny?", "Does this sound authentic?", or even "Who writes letters anymore?".

Trust the experts

Luckily, Receptiviti's expertise in language psychology will ensure your letter expresses the right emotions and tone. Our free Demo allows you to copy text into a box and see the results in simple charts and graphs. For example, look at the emotions in Johnny Cash's birthday letter to June Carter, written in 1944:

Happy Birthday Princess,

We get old and get used to each other. We think alike. We read each other's minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes we irritate each other a little bit. Maybe sometimes take each other for granted.

But once in awhile, like today, I meditate on it and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met. You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me for the better. You’re the object of my desire, the #1 Earthly reason for my existence. I love you very much. Happy Birthday Princess. - John

Not bad, right? As you can see, Johnny's message was short, but was able to convey a range of emotions.

Our free Demo also provides measures of personality, social dynamics (such as authenticity and affiliation), temporal focus, and so much more. Just copy paste your text in the box, and you're on your way to writing a more thoughtful, empathetic, and sincere message to those you care about.
