50 Totally Cheesy Valentine’s Day Sayings

Cheesy expressions of love are at the heart of Valentine’s Day. And yes, that pun is very much intended – and appropriate, given the “punny” humor of many Valentine’s messages.

Whether it’s printed on a greeting card or etched on a chalky piece of candy, a cornball saying has the ability to make you smile and groan at the same time. For some, they’re a cringeworthy part of the holiday to be avoided at all costs. For others, they’re a guilty pleasure – much like a big box of assorted chocolates you know you shouldn’t polish off in one sitting.

If you fall into the second group, here’s a collection of cheesy Valentine’s Day messages to sink your teeth into. Unlike that box of chocolates, they’re calorie-free. However, we can’t promise you won’t wind up with a stomachache after reading through these saccharine sayings.


Most cheesy Valentines include a word pun, often accompanied by a cartoon or other picture. Here are some “punny” examples.

  • (Any Wild Animal) I’m WILD about you, Valentine.
