40 Cute Goodnight Texts And Why They Work

By on January 7, 2014

If you’ve got someone special on your mind, sometimes the best way the end the day is with a cute goodnight text to them. It’s a great and simple way to let them know you’re thinking of them and to get them thinking of you. Whether you’re already in a relationship with them or you’re hoping soon to be, this is a great thing to do. You’ll get a rush of feelings by letting them know you’re thinking of them and they’ll feel loved knowing that you are. And, if they send a message back, you’ll no doubt be on cloud nine as you dream tonight.


While you may want to send them a message, sometimes knowing exactly what to text someone can be tricky. All too often we’re overcome by our shyness and send nothing at all. This is a big no, no! How are they ever going to know what you’re thinking or how you feel if you don’t find some courage and tell them? Even if you’re not shy, deciding what to write can still be a nightmare. That’s why I’ve come up with a fool proof list of 40 (yes, 40!) of the best cute goodnight texts. There’s a mix of bold, subtle, poetic, wise and loving messages so you’ll no doubt be able to find a message for any mood or situation.

Here goes…


For The Couples

If you’re already in a relationship and are looking for something fun, cute, loving or bold to send your other half, this list is perfect. These cute messages work because they’re something to help you express exactly how you feel towards your partner, something to make them feel loved and to get them thinking of you if they weren’t already too.


  • I love you, my sweet.
  • I couldn’t sleep until I told you how much I missed you. Goodnight, my love.

Good night quotes-1


  • Everyday I love you more than I did the day before. I can’t image how I could possibly love you more than I do but somehow everyday I manage it. I can’t wait for tomorrow to love you more again.

Good night quotes-2

  • I started counting one star in the sky for each reason I love you…Then I ran out of stars and I realized the reasons are infinite.
  • Goodnight, my prince, my love, my everything. Sleep well and dream of your princess.
  • You mean the world to me, don’t forget that. Goodnight and sweet dreams.
  • The thoughts of how much I love you are keeping me awake longer and longer each night

Good night quotes-3

  • My day has been hectic, it’s been non stop and I never got to see you. It was hard but  the thought of falling asleep without saying goodnight to you was unbearable. Goodnight, sleep tight, I can’t wait until the next time I see you.
  • You’re in my heart tonight, tomorrow and forever. Sweet dreams, handsome.

Good night quotes-4

  • You prove to me more each day why I should love you. I’m going to spend every day giving you reasons to love me.

Good night quotes-5

  • I know that you are the one, because when we are apart I feel incomplete. I never want to be without you. Goodnight.


For The Couples To Be

If you’re not already in a relationship but know exactly who you want to be in a one with, you need to read this section. Whether the person you’re falling for is a friend or just a classmate, so long as you know them at least a little these texts are great. I’ll admit, some of them are extremely bold but sometimes you need that and some of them are dependent on having spent time with the person in question too. Either way, you’re sure to find something on the list to suit your needs.

These messages work because they let this person know you’re thinking of them and (if you send a subtle message) they’ll get them wondering why you’re thinking of them and their mind will begin to explore the possibilities of you two being a couple.


  • I’ll dream of you.
  • Today was perfect.
  • I miss you already.

Good night quotes-6


  • One day I want to fall asleep beside you and wake up with you.
  • Dream of me.
  • If I wish hard enough, maybe my dream will come true and I’ll wake up next to you.
  • Do you think about me before you go to sleep?

Good night quotes-8

  • Sweet dreams, I hope I’m in them. You’re already in mine.
  • I want to be the girl you can’t go to sleep without thinking about and you can’t go a day without loving.


For Couples And Couples To Be

Some cute goodnight text messages could be used for both couples and couples to be so instead of listing them all twice I’ve listed them all here. Again, some of them are bold and daring but, like I said before, there’s nothing wrong with that. You need to let this person know how you feel somehow so why not be up front about it?

Here comes a mix of the daring, the sickly sweet and the cutest quotes you’ve ever heard…

Good night quotes-10

  • You’ll be the last think I think of before I fall asleep and the first thing I think of when I wake up.

Good night quotes-11

  • Dreaming keeps me going. It means I don’t have to be apart from you for so long

Good night quotes-12

  • Starlight, star-bright, you’re the only star I see tonight.

Good night quotes-13

  • I don’t want to fall asleep because reality with you is better than any dream.

Good night quotes-14

  • During the day I keep myself busy and sometimes time passes. By night, I really miss you.
  • I’d walk a million miles to sleep with you tonight.
  • I keep hugging the pillow and wishing it was you. It’s hard not being with you.
  • Goodnight, handsome.
  • I just wanted to let you know I’m thinking of you.

Good night quotes-15

  • Hey! Just wanted to say good night. Sweet dreams. Hugs. Kisses. Rainbows. Moons. Stars. Supernovas.
  • You can’t sleep? Me neither. Let’s can’t sleep together.


Goodnight Poems

If all else fails, rhyme. Poems are perhaps the most expressive form of writing there is so combining them with a text (which is often considered rather impersonal) can be a great mix. These cute goodnight poems can be used whether you’re in a relationship or are still getting close to the certain someone.

These texts work simply for the fact they are cute and that an immense amount of thought and love has been put into each of them. Even if you didn’t write them, your special someone will love that you took the time to look them up and feel flattered that you feel that way about them.

good night poem1

  • My day may be hectic.
    My schedule may be tight.
    But I would never let the day end
    without saying Good night and. Sweet dreams!

good night poem2

  • As the day turns into night, keep your worries out of sight. Close your eyes and go to sleep, all the good times are yours to keep. Sweet dreams & Good Night.
  • Goodnight, sleep tight, dream of me with all your might.
  • The stars lean down to kiss you and I lie awake and miss you.


Quotes To Use

If you don’t like anything you’ve read so far and would like to take a more cultured approach to texting cute goodnight messages, using a quote can be perfect. Some of the most respected and wisest individuals throughout history have brought us some incredible and much loved quotes on the subject of love. Using them to express our own feelings is perfectly acceptable. So we’re not quite as eloquent as some of these people, that doesn’t mean we don’t love someone as much as they did.

Let’s see what some of these incredible people had to say…

good night poem3

  • In dreams and love, there are no impossibilities. – Janos Aranay

good night poem4


  • Laugh and the world laughs with you, snore and you sleep alone. – Anthony Burgess

good night poem5

  • My night has become a sunny dawn because of you. – Ibn Abbad

good night poem6

  • At this moment 3.7 million people are sleeping, 2.3 million are falling in love, 4.1 million are eating & only one sweet person in the whole world is reading this message!! Good night! – Anonymous

good night poem7

  • If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you. – A. A. Milne


So there you have it, 40 of the best cute goodnight texts, why they work and how and when they should be used. Just remember, all of these texts can be customized. You can change things like ‘my sweet’ and ‘handsome’ to whatever you happen to call your other half and there are countless variations of ‘goodnight’ and ‘sleep tight’ that you could use. For some ideas on what to nickname your partner in both texts and real life, try reading my other article 28 Cute And Fun Nicknames For Your Boyfriend.

It’s worth remembering that these messages should come from the heart. This extensive list is a great starting point but remember to add a bit of personality to the messages.

Please share any other cute text ideas you have, I’d love to hear what ideas you have. Also, I’d love to hear about your experiences too! What texts have you sent? What’s the cutest text message, email or social networking message you ever received? Was it a goodnight message or just a nice surprise? I know, I know – I’m nosey, right? I just love hearing what you have to say!

I’ll let you go now, you’re free to go and try out some of my messages and the tips I’ve thrown in along side them.

Good luck and goodnight!

      If you have reason to believe that your girlfriend is only interested in your vast wealth, then perhaps you should take her on dates that cost no money. Don’t purchase things for her that are extravagant. However, it would be best for you to have a clear and direct conversation with her about your concerns. Have a good day, Collin.

      She clearly has chosen to not respect you. Allow her to continue to fade from your life. If you find that you have positive or negative thoughts about her, then think about something else. Take this time to look inward and determine what you want for our life without her. This will bring you great benefit as you move into the future. Best of luck, Michael!

    Hi my boyfriend is still incontact with her ex gf and he does not want to tell his ex gf that he is now in a relationship and out of nowhere i sent her ex an fb message. He got mad at me for doing that because he feels like i am controlling him.. after some weeks out of curiosity i checked his phone messages and found his conversation with his ex gf.. He told me he will tell me if his ex sends a message but he lied and hide everything. He got mad at me because i broke into his privacy and then he broke up with me because he feels that he cannot trust me. It was the first time that i checked on his phone and i found out all his secrets but now he only thinks about his privacy and boundaries that i did but he never thinks about how i feel about his constant communication with his ex gf. I did my part to win him back for 5 days i’ve been beghing him. I gave him sorry & thank you letter with white roses and a teddy bear inside his car and i only got “Thank you”.Yes we are in a long distance relationship and his ex live in the same city and country.

    In 2 months from now i will be moving To his country because i got a work there.

    We are broken up but he still wants me to live with him.and he keeps sending messages to me asking me how i am… I don’t understand at all. Is it advisable for me to live with him ? Or do you think he still wants to give it another shot with me? Need advice please

      You should not attempt to re-establish a relationship with him. He lied to you about speaking to his ex. He also got upset at you when you found out that he was lying to you. He will likely continue to do the same thing. You should try to live somewhere else and establish your life without him. Continue to be mindful as you move forward. Best of luck, Angel!

      Heyyy! Really you shouldn’t move in with me. He doesn’t respect you feelings back then what make you think he will respect them now?
      Moving in with him will definitely make you the number 1 topic with his friends and he will always brag about it. If he really love you he should respect your feelings, and if he wanna be with you stand for you…. Best of luck Angel

      It is clear that she in not interested in a relationship at this time. She will either speak to you when she is ready to date again, or she will drift away. She is only interested in a relationship that will lead t marriage. She does not have any interest in dating for the sake of dating. Remain respectful of her and of her wishes. Have a great day, Paurshe!

      All you can do is wait for her to be single. If you try to hit on her or she leaves him for you, then you will never be able to trust her not to do the same thing again. If you love her and respect her, then you have to respect the fact that she is in a relationship. Most relationships end sooner or later, so you will just have to hope that her current relationship comes to an end naturally. Good luck, Stelios!

      If both of you have feelings for each other, then there is no reason for you to not attempt to develop a relationship with her. If you are concerned that your friendship will fail because of your relationship, then it may be wise for you to remain friends. Remain close with her. Spend time with her and talk about your thoughts and ideas. She will share her feelings as well. In time, you can speak directly and honestly with her about your feelings. Best of luck, Stephon!

      The best way to show someone that you love them is through your actions. Be there for her, make her smile when she is sad, listen to her and just generally treat her with respect. When it comes to love, actions speak much louder than words. Perhaps you could do something nice for her like planning a candle lit picnic on a pretty mountain top or taking her on a hike and a picnic. Good luck, Olurichy!

      You can’t really tell, I suppose. It’d be impossible to tell from one text or comment if she likes you for sure, so all you can really do is keep flirting with her and see where things go. Good luck, Edgar–I hope that it works out for you!

      He probably just forgot or was busy. I would really not read into it at all. While you are analyzing and reanalyzing everything he says and does, he probably does not put the same degree of thought into overanalyzing his actions. I would really not worry about it. If you are worried, why don’t you initiate the good night text instead? Good luck, Katty Davis!

      October 16, 2016 at 6:56 pm

      He didn’t forget or was busy, he would have found the time to send you a goodnight txt, but most guys don’t want to seem needy or desperate, there for we will go a few days wihought txting you, but if he txt you almost every night then you are in his mind all the time and he is thinking of you all the time, you have to put a little effort as well, just send a goodnight or morning txt sometimes, because if you don’t put any effort then we think you’re not interested

      August 20, 2016 at 12:34 am

      If you feel like sending a good night message, then you send them whatever is on your mind. It can be related to dreams or thoughts. Often times if you are sending a good night message, then you are interested in that person. Speak from the heart and be honest.

      It is likely that she has feelings for you. Since she is texting you at night and wishing you well, she may be having her feelings grow stronger. Speak with her directly and honestly about your feelings. You should work to determine what she is thinking and then share your thoughts with her.

      We will not be messaging anyone. If you want to develop a relationship with this person, then speak with her honestly and directly. If she does not want to develop a relationship with you, then there is no reason for you to continue. If she does want to develop a relationship, then you will not need outside help. Remain positive as you move forward and be bold. Do not share her name in a public area as it would be a violation of her privacy. Violating her privacy for your personal gain will not get her to have an interest in you and it will likely cause her to not trust you.

        That is wise advice. If someone does not love you, then it would be best to allow them to leave. You should take this time to look inward and determine what kind of life you want to be living now. It is good to take time for reflection, especially if your desires are not reciprocated. Enjoy life and look to the present moment. Thank you, Jessejacks.
