Message Guy Tip #49: How to choose romantic birthday wishes
If you want to give your husband, wife, girlfriend or boyfriend the perfect birthday wish, there's really nothing better than birthday wishes with lots of romance thrown in.
Done properly, love birthday messages can actually make your significant other’s heart flutter. Done perfectly, you can also sweep your lover off her or his feet. That's when you know you chose just the right birthday wish.
What's the wrong type of romantic birthday greeting?
A birthday verse that does not express your real feelings
A birthday wish that's just too romantic (just a tad too gushy) or, worse, too cold (not romantic at all)
A birthday greeting that's more sexual than romantic (sex is what usually comes after the romance)
It's easy to fall into one of these traps, if you don't know your significant other too well. If this is the case with your relationship, go the generic birthday greeting route (just check out my "Happy Birthday Wishes" section).
Otherwise, get started with one of the romantic birthday wishes below. Pick the one that says everything you want to express...and go from there, keeping what you choose "as is" or changing it a bit.

Happy birthday, my darling! This special birthday poem is for you...
It was a spark at first, A glow I couldn't see, It flickered in my heart, This crazy love in me.
It soon became a fire, A fierce flame so carefree, Scorching my deep heartache, This crazy love in me.
Now a blaze of sunshine, A beam of warmth so true, A slow, searing, kind burn, This crazy love is you.
Happy birthday, sweetheart! Hope you loved this poem, as much as I love you. And that's with all the fire in my heart.
