40 Cute Things to Text Your Boyfriend

By on January 8, 2014

Absolutely love texting your boyfriend, but running out of cute texts that will make him smile? You’re not alone. After texting the same person for several months, finding things to make them smile can be a little difficult. But with these 40 cute things to text your boyfriend will surely make him laugh and smile.


1. Hey there handsome.

So much better than simply reading ‘Hi’ or ‘Hey’. Make him smile with the very first text you send. It can only get better!

2. I miss your cute smile.

Who doesn’t love a compliment on their appearance? Men love compliments, and this one will definitely make him smile with that cute little grin you know and love.

3. I love you.

This one should obviously be reserved for more serious relationships, but once he reads this he will definitely get butterflies in his belly.

4. You are so handsome.


Again, every man loves to be complimented. You can use other words like hot or sexy, but hearing he’s handsome will definitely up his ego in a more meaningful way.

5. I love your ____.

Really you can say just about anything with this text. Maybe you love his gorgeous green eyes, maybe you love his hilarious personality, or maybe are head over heels for his long blonde hair. Whatever it is that drives you crazy, let him know with this text. It’ll boost his ego and keep him happy for days on end.

6. I love it when you ____.

Tell your boyfriend some things you love that he does, like picking you up and hugging you or bringing you flowers before your date. This will not only make him feel good about himself, but will also let him know that he should continue doing it- and more often, too! It’s a win for the both of you.

7. I love you like a fat kid loves cake.

Such a classic line, but it gets a smile every time. I mean, the image is priceless yet it has a lot more meaning than you’d think. It’s really just an adorable text that will make him laugh the second he reads it, while still making his heart melt. Who knew you had such amazing powers?

8. So, there’s this really amazing guy. I like him a lot. His name is (insert boyfriend’s name here).

At first he’ll think, ‘Who is she talking about?’ Then he’ll be greatly surprised (and happy!) when he sees his name. Such a cute way to shower your man with compliments!


9. I was having a bad day, but then I thought of you and suddenly my world lit up.

It might be corny, but it’s definitely one to use on bad days when the only thing that makes you smile is him.

10. <3 

Ah, the heart symbol. So tiny, yet has such an impact. It’s a way of telling him you love him without words.



11. Guess what? (What?) I love you!

Yeah, you didn’t really have a surprise. You just wanted a clever way to tell him you love him! Who wouldn’t smile at that?

12. I wish you were here right now.

Everybody wants to feel wanted, and your man will love knowing that you wish he was next to you.


13. I can’t imagine life without you.

Another great text idea to really show him how much you care about him and want to be with him.


14. Words can’t describe how much I love you.

Another cute text idea for those in serious relationships. It must be pretty deep if words can’t even describe it!

15. I’d do anything to make you smile.

This is a great text to show your man how much you care about him and just want him to be happy!

20. I hope you know CPR, ‘cause you just took my breath away!

A compliment about your boyfriend’s strong, masculine arms? Yeah, there’s just no way you can go wrong with that.

25. You understand me so well. I can tell you anything.

Your man wants to know that you’re completely comfortable with him, so he’ll obviously love reading this text from you.

26. My friends are so jealous that I have you.

Letting your guy know you love him is great. But telling him that even your friends are  jealous boosts his ego that much higher. And as an added bonus, he’ll probably flaunt you even more in front of your gal pals.

27. You’re the man of my dreams.

Basically letting your guy know he competes with unreal characters of your dreams- yeah, it’s a weird concept- but one he will love to hear.

28. I don’t know how you put up with me.

There’s probably a few times where your man’s gotten irritated by you (maybe you’re cranky, goofy, sarcastic, etc), but this text will definitely make him smile and lighten his tension. There’s no doubt he’ll find this text cute AND funny.


29. You make me feel like a princess.

This is, after all, every guy’s mission: to make his lady feel like the princess she really is. This text is just reassurance that he is doing his job right and will definitely make him feel secure and happy.

30. I’m stealing your shirt next time I see you.

This adorable text lets your man know that you want a little piece of him to take home and snuggle with when he’s away. (Plus you get a brand new comfy pajama shirt). Win-win situation!



31. You’re so great at everything. Is there anything you can’t do?

Making your man feel like he’s the most masculine superhero on the planet is obviously a great idea. He will seriously love this text and is something you need to send him ASAP!

32. I had such a great time on our last date.

This is a wonderful text soon after a great date between the two of you. If your gigantic smiles during the entire date wasn’t enough to make it obvious, this text will seal the deal and make sure your man knows it was a great night.

33. I love watching you work out.

Again, there is no way you can go wrong complimenting your man’s physique. He will feel like a muscular stud and, of course, that’s something you want to do.

34. I want to know more about you. You’re so interesting!

There’s nothing like wondering whether or not you’re another boring fling. This text will make your guy know he is totally interesting and you can’t wait to find out more about him. Way to boost his ego, girl!

35. You are so unbelievably sweet and caring.

Usually guys want to hear that they are the hottest, most muscular man on the planet. But even so, they still like to hear that they are sweet from time to time. This cute text will let him know he’s more than just eye candy.

36. I love how ambitious you are.

Every woman loves a man with his eye on the prize. A hard-working man is just simply what every woman wants. This text will not only make him grin and feel like a million bucks, but will also boost his ambitious attitude and help him work harder at his job.

37. You always know just what to say to make smile.

It’s your man’s duty to keep a smile on your face. This text is not only really cute, but will let him know that he is doing a wonderful job as your boyfriend and to keep doing what he’s doing- it’s obviously working!

38. I don’t know what I would do without you.

This text basically tells your man that you need him in your life, that he completes you. This is obviously a great text to give your man some security and let him know just how important he is.

39. You’re so strong. I feel so protected around you.

Again, you can’t go wrong with complimenting your man’s strength. And as every man’s goal is to protect his woman from the danger’s of this world, there’s no way he won’t adore this text. Definitely one to send to your boyfriend as soon as you can.

40. You’re so cute when you ____.

Does your boyfriend do something really cute that just makes you giggle the second he does it? Why not tell him! This cute text will make him a little embarrassed, but definitely in a good way. Let your man know even the silly things he does makes you smile!

    Hey… I need some advise I have a bf. He’s means everything to me and I love him soo much. It’s just we love quite far apart. And we barely see each other, but when we do we cherish it. But sometimes my heart just breaks waking up and knowing I’m not gonna get to see him. What if I’m holding him back, maybe he wants a gf he can see everyday? I don’t wanna be in his rode. He’s says he loves me and never wants to leave me and that but u honestly don’t know wat to do!! Help

    • web admin

      I doubt that you are holding him back. He chose to be in a relationship with you and wants to be with you. Obviously, another girl will not work as long as he is in love with you. Enjoy your time together when you have it and don’t worry so much!

    Hey so I like this guy a lot and he likes me but he lives halfway across the country. We text a lot and talk on the phone but I miss him a lot and he’s really busy I don’t know whether to pursue the relationship because there’s a chance I won’t see him again

    • web admin

      November 29, 2015 at 4:39 pm

      Whether you pursue the relationship or not is entirely up to you. Long distance relationships actually have about the same chance of working out as a normal relationship. Personally, my now-husband and I lived in different countries for a year before we ultimately became married. That said, in-person relationships don’t have particularly good statistics going for them. If you have some hope of living near him or having him move in the future, then it may be worthwhile to pursue. If you know for sure that neither of you will ever be able to move closer to each other, then you might want to just start moving on.

    Dear Admin, thanks for your sweet messages they are real good, I have a man who is in another relationship with another woman and am 5months pregnant for him, he is there for me but he doesn’t give me enough time because he is always busy with work and his wife but he promises me things will be fine because he loves me. am worried if things will get better in future.please advise me what I should do.

    • web admin

      November 27, 2015 at 5:44 pm

      Oh, dear. That sounds like a rather crazy situation for you to be in. Did you know that he was married before you became pregnant? At the moment, I am not sure what your options really are. If he is married, there is a very strong chance that he will end up staying with his wife. Few married couples go through a divorce for an affair, although it is always possible. You could always try talking to him to see what he wants. If he has not tried to break up with her by now–after all, you are already five months along–, then I doubt that he will ever end things with her. Make sure that he is prepared to support your child and start planning on how to take care of the child on your own. If you are lucky, he will end up leaving her to be with you, but I would prepare for the worst case scenario just in case. Good luck, Joan!

    Hey,i need some advice. I really love my bf but i don’t think that he loves me because he is always ignoring me.But he doesn’t want to break up with me and he said that he loves me,but he keeps ignoring me. What should i do?

    • web admin

      November 25, 2015 at 11:01 pm

      You should just tell him how he feels. He may not realize that he is ignoring you or that it is being perceived like he is ignoring you. Just sit him down and have an honest conversation about how you feel and what you want. If he truly does love you, he will listen to you and change his ways so that he is more loving and attentive. Good luck, Tasya!

    I was in a relationship for one year before i travelled to the country which I currently based now,I and my boyfriend was living happily till I found out that he’s in a relationship with some girl who has been posting his pics on social media for me to see.I trusted him but he lied about him dating her,surprisingly he opened up to me one day that he’s really dating her but it was all a mistake so I forgave him but he’s attitude changed,he no longer have my time,he doesn’t even call nor returns my calls and messages… I finally started to chart with a guy who fell in love with me and I think am inlove with him too bcos he makes me happy and this guy lives in the same country I come from..He used my pics on he’s dp.. But am scared bcoz I broke up with my boyfriend all bcos of this guy whom we only talk on video most times.I want to know if my decision is wrong or right pls any advice?

    • web admin

      I think that it was a good thing to break up with your last boyfriend. He was dating someone else without telling you, so he does not deserve any of your loyalty. As for the new guy, you will be able to find out when you meet in person if he is really the right guy for you. For the moment, it seems like he is a good boyfriend, so it would be worth your time to continue dating him and see where this relationship ends up. Good luck, Faith!

    Hey, i need some advice, Ive met this guy and we talk on this chat called OoVoo and weve known eachother for a while now. i like him but Im not sure if he likes me. he always replies to me with xx’s and hearts and that im sweet and stuff but i wanna find out if he Likes me too! Helppp

    • web admin

      November 22, 2015 at 12:21 am

      If he always replies to you with xx’s, hearts and compliments, then it sounds like he could like you. Have you guys ever met or talked in real life? It may be easier for you to tell if he is interested if you guys actually talk in person. Plus, it would be another sign that he is interested if he agrees to hang out with you one-on-one. As the saying goes, “Nothing ventured, nothing gained”. The only way you can find out the depth of his feelings is to ask him out or, at least, ask him to hang out. Good luck, Lola Star!

    I need help I don’t how to make my boyfriend happy when he’s upset. I’ve tried everything. Nothing seems to be working so I sent him some of these messages and his only comment comment was “okay I know.” I just wanna know more ways that I can make him happy and cheer him up when he’s upset. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!

    • web admin

      November 21, 2015 at 11:44 pm

      If nothing you say or do makes him feel better, perhaps the problem is that he just needs some space. Some people just need time to process their feelings before they start to feel better, and someone else trying to help cheer them up is just a reminder that they are not happy. This might not be true in your boyfriend’s case, but it is worth a try. Over time, you may naturally start to figure out other ways to make him feel better, but for the moment, I would just try to give him some space. Good luck, Destiny!

    Hi, so me and this guy are together but not yet going out. He lives really far from me and I’ve met him only once. We really understand each other and get along but he’s told me that he was a player but he isn’t any more and that he’s really comitted to me. I really want to believe him but all my friends tell me that if your once a player your always a player… everybody changes right? I’m kinda confused about this… do you have any advice for me? How to know he’s not playing me? We text alot and call each other also.

    • web admin

      November 20, 2015 at 9:33 pm

      He may be just worried about being seriously committed because you are so far away. The fact that he seems seriously committed to you despite the distance seems to show that he is really interested in you and wants to be with you. Even players change–especially once they meet the right person or realize that they want a committed relationship. From your description, it seems like he is seriously interested in you, but it seem like he seriously likes you. Do you want to be with him, what do you want to do?

          You could try checking out our article on flirty text messages. Sending one of those would indicate that you like him without you having to say it. At the same time, you could just ask him if he wants to hang out sometime or go on a date. It sounds like he is really starting to like you, so he would probably say yes. Are you ready and able to make that attempt?

    .. i have a suitation.
    i like this guy but he has a girlfriend. But him and i been hanging out. At first as friends but then we grew feelings for each other. But he doesn’t know what to do.
    I’m like in the middle of the situation. And i really fell for him. Now he’s been distant.. doesn’t want to talk to me.. not like how we use to.

    • web admin

      November 20, 2015 at 8:53 pm

      If he has a girlfriend, then you should not do anything more. He already seems like he likes you, so you should just wait and see what he does. If he really likes you, then he will break up with her. For the moment, it seems like you may have to wait for him to decide what he wants. If he is not ready quite yet to end things with her, you may have to wait for a while in the hope that he does end up breaking up with her. You don’t want to push things along because you want him to break up with her for reasons that relate to her. Otherwise, he may worry later on that he made the wrong choice or question his decisions. Wait for him to make the decision to end things with her, and then try to date him.

    I sent all of these messages to my boyfriend and he was so annoyed with me we ended up having a big argument and he broke up with me !!!! :( :( What should I say to win back his heart? I’ve done everything I possibly can to show him I belong to him, and only him, and he still doesn’t respect me for some reason?

    • web admin

      November 20, 2015 at 7:56 pm

      Oh, no! He should have liked these texts because they show how much you like him. I don’t know why he did not like them…is he planning on breaking up with you? Or does he just not like displays of affection? Do you know what is going on in his mind right now?

    • Meghan

      November 29, 2015 at 6:13 am

      Im 13 and i know about all of this if admin doesnt mind. The reason why he broke up with you was because you were starting to become too attached. Did you send the all in a row? If so then you may have overdone it. I text my boyfriend these messages at least once or twice a month to tell him i still love him. I used to be obsessed with him in 3rd grade but then we broke up in 6th grade, so i learned my lesson on not being too attached. Just a little advice from a 13 yr old girl i hope this helps alot. :)

    I need some advice. So this guy I like (who likes me back) I feel is afraid of going out with me because of a fear of getting hurt/hurting me. He took me to homecoming we kissed and we talk all the time. He says he wants to date me and stuff, but when we were talking about what our relationship is we kept dodgeing the question from each other. I finally got him to answer the question and he said a bunch of stuff and ended it like “Let’s let the others do the labeling”. Also today my friend was messing with him like teasing him about us (like everyone does). He apparently got really defensive when someone asked if we were dating. Anyway my question is why do you think he acts this way. Is he being to pressured into dating me, is he afraid of hurting me/me hurting him, fear of commitment, thinks I don’t really like him in that way, does he not like me in that way, is he afraid of being made fun of since we are in different social scales (he is a popular and I am a dork though he acts more like a dork), is he afraid of becoming something we are annoyed of (those couples who are obsessed with each other eating each others face 24/7), or something else. Sorry for it being so long, I overthink A LOT.

    • web admin

      November 20, 2015 at 6:57 pm

      If he took you to homecoming and kissed you, then he likes you on some level. He might just not want to label things until he knows exactly where things are headed. He could also be doing this because he just wants a fling and does not want to get committed, although it could be worries about his social status. I think that the most likely options are either a) he does not know where this is going and wants to try things out first or b) he just wants a fling and does not want to commit just yet.

    hi there i need some advice asp.Me and my boyfriend been going out for a long time now and every time i go over his house he always on his computer on games or talking to his friends sometimes i feel bored and ignored when i go over but he doesnt noticed because he always on his games. i asked him if we could watch a movie in his room together but he said he didnt want to and left me to watch it by my self i felt so loney and ignored and now that fall-out four just came out he havent been talking to me much only say hi and asked me what i was doing then go offline. im scared that he loves his computer more than he loves me

      Perhaps you should try sitting him down and telling him how you feel. It is understandable that he does what he loves so much, but it would definitely benefit your relationship to have some one-on-one time together. When you talk to him, you could bring up the idea of having a date day or a date night that is exclusively for you two; no phones, computers or video games. It might not be as much together time as you want, but he should be able to give up the video games for one day or evening a week without a problem, and it would certainly help you to get some of the attention and closeness that you need.

      If you are trying to get him turned on, why don’t you try wearing lingerie, planning a date night or doing something else to spice things up? Playing a dirty trick is a terrible idea and will not help your relationship out at all. If I may ask, what exactly did you do to trick him? Also, why do you get mad? He may be just trying to hold back from being sexual so that you know he respects you, so don’t worry about it so much!

      It sounds like you have a boyfriend who is extremely carrying, but the fact that he is married means that you should probably end things. It is extremely unlikely that he would ever leave his wife to be with you, which means that this relationship is probably never going to go any further than it already is. It is too bad you could not have met him before he was married. :( Good luck, Sharon–I hope that everything ends up working out for you.
