In honor of Valentine’s Day, Sepia Saturday bloggers are digging through archives to find fitting photos.

I liked this series of Valentines cards that show the bliss and pitfalls of young love from Norway’s National Library’s collection. Date unknown.

For Valentine’s Day

Your Heart is Cautious

You want love as much as the next person, but you’re a bit shy. You’ve been hurt before.
You need to be sure that you’ve found the right person before you make the leap. And you’re willing to take your time.

You tend to be a perfectionist in all aspects of your life, and this includes love. You are the type to have a checklist.
You may have high standards for your partner, but you also have high standards for yourself. You make sure that you are quality relationship material.

You can even be a bit of a relationship expert at times. You’ve thought long and hard what it takes to make one work.
Deep down, all you want is a love that will last a lifetime. And you’re willing to work hard to make that happen.
