Valentine’s Day Survey Reveals The World Needs More Love

The world needs more love. This is the overwhelming consensus among respondents of our Valentine’s Day survey of over 1000 users in the United States.

The survey found that 95 percent of respondents feel that the world needs more love in 2017 compared to 2016. When asked about ways to share acts of love, almost half agreed that love letters are beautiful expressions of affection, but over 61 percent revealed that they’d never written one.

To help people spread more love around the world, we’ve launched Love Notes to the World, a campaign that asks people to create their own love notes using our custom generator. It’s a quick and easy way for anyone to write a love letter to the world.

Every Love Note created via will have the chance to be part of a live art installation happening on Valentine’s Day at Wattpad Headquarters.

The survey also revealed a number of other interesting findings. Check them out:


Leading up to Valentine’s Day is a great time to share acts - and words - of love. At a time when the world seems more divisive than ever, Wattpad hopes that our massively positive community will inspire conversations across a love-starved world.

Take a few minutes to create your own Love Note with the generator and help spread love on Wattpad, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Facebook through #WattpadLoveNotes
