Passers-by are being treated to an extra-dose of romance in Paris on Valentine’s Day. For days people have been entering love messages of 160 characters addressed to the object of their affection and today, February 14, the messages are displayed all day on the city’s public information billboards.

Billboard signs saying "I hope to live all my Valentine's Days by your side, even if there'll be never be enough to tell you how much I love you!"
“I hope to live all my Valentine’s Days by your side, even if there’ll be never be enough to tell you how much I love you!”

Lovers could type a Valentine’s Day message on the Paris website of a maximum of 160 characters addressed to the object of their affection. People in Paris got into the spirit and some even took the leap and proposed.

Billboard sign saying "You are the love of my life. I am the love of your life. So, marry me!"
“You are the love of my life. I am the love of your life. So, marry me!”

The most romantic compositions were then displayed on the City’s 170 illuminated public information boards repeatedly throughout the day on 14th February. Some were personal messages of undying love, some were marriage proposals, and lucky for Remi, his beloved said yes!

There were touching messages, funny messages, deep-felt messages and this one from Fred went for the assertive style.

Billboard sign saying "This is an official save the date. We get married on September 5, in the 17th district. Kisses. Do you validate?"
