Birthday Wishes to a Lover:

Here are a few things you can write in a birthday card to someone you're dating:


-If you believe in me as much as I believe in you, they will know our name. And I believe in you so much! Happy Birthday.
(This is one of our favorite quotes! It's adorable and so powerful. It is not only great to write in a birthday card, but it can also be used as a writing in any card given to your significant other for any other occasion or just because.)

-Happy Birthday to my best friend, my better half, my partner in crime, and the man of my dreams.  

-Happy Birthday to the Bonie to my Clyde, the Peanut butter to my Jelly. I know this sounds cheesy but I can't help it you're the macaroni to my cheese! 

-Whether we’re together or we're apart, you’re first in my thoughts and always in my heart. Have a wonderful birthday.

-Roses are red. Violets are blue. Starts off cheesy, but listen all the way through. I have found my true love in you. I love you so, yes it’s true!  Happy birthday!

-Happy birthday to someone who means the world to me, and maybe also a galaxy or two.  

-Together forever, never apart. Maybe in distance, but never in heart. Sending birthday kisses from miles and miles away. Happy Birthday.

So here are some more ideas to get you started on writing your birthday wishes: 
Even though we don't recommend sending Facebook birthday wishes to close friends, unless you don’t mind your message being buried with another hundred messages from not so close friends and sometimes even strangers, if you wish to do so, make sure you make it personal! 
 
Examples of generic birthday wishes and how you can make them personal: 
Instead of saying to a friend: Happy Birthday.. May all your wishes come true. 
Say: Happy Birthday.. Hope you get a silver Tesla, a nicer building manager, a vacation in Sicily, and enough gold to fill up your swimming pool with. 
(Basically, anything your bestie has ever talked about wanting to have).
