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!

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.

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!

    me and this guy who been chatting for about 2 weeks now, he is somewhat autistic. He doesn’t know how to be flirtatious through text. But when we are together, he makes my heart race like its beating out of my chest.
    I dont want to change him in anyway because he is just perfect. But gosh I wish he would flirt!

    • web admin

      Some people (well, actually a lot of people) are terrible at flirting. It seems like he likes you, so I would not worry too much about his flirting problems. If it really bothers you, just try to hang out with him more often in person so that he can flirt more easily. He seems to really be interested in you, so relax and go with the flow. Keep in mind that his autism may make him terrible at picking up on hints, so he might not understand that you want him to flirt more unless you tell him that explicitly. Good luck, Hope!

    What do you do when you been used. My ex boyfriend used me by having sex with me and i didnt know at the time my friends were saying that he did but i said he didnt. Or what do you do when you get hurt by him. My ex boyfriend tried to kill me by choking me how long should i take to trust him again and to talk to him????? Need help fast

    • web admin

      February 11, 2016 at 1:29 pm

      You should never trust him again or be with him. If he tried to kill you and choke you to death, then you should avoid ever being alone with him again. The best thing that you can do right now is to forget about him and move on. If he is the type of person who tries to use girls for sex, he will keep on causing problems and trying to use you as long as he is in your life. If you have to, bring a friend with you to break up with him or break up with him online. What he is doing is not okay, and you might want to tell a parent or someone else what he is doing. His behavior is not acceptable and could be a sign of a really dangerous personality type. Be careful, Gabriella!

    Hey I drew a button on my boyfriends arm and said is tell him what it does tomorrow at school. But I don’t know what it does! I want to hug him or give him a kiss on the cheek but we just got together and it’s at school! WHAT should I tell him?

    • web admin

      February 11, 2016 at 8:47 am

      You drew a button on him? I am not sure if I understand exactly. At any rate, if you do want to give him a hug or a kiss on the cheek, go ahead and do it when there aren’t any teachers around. There is no reason that the guy always has to make the first move, so you could go ahead and hug him or kiss him. You could also try asking him out on a date outside of school because this would allow you a chance to give him a kiss without a bunch of classmates or teachers around. Good luck, Chickens!

    What do i do if a guy says he loves me… then goes after another girl and he asks me to hook him up with her

    • web admin

      February 11, 2016 at 8:29 am

      He may have given up on going after you, or he may like you both. If he is asking for help to ask another girl out, then there is a strong possibility that he has already moved on from you. If you are no longer interested in him, you can go ahead and help him ate this girl. If you still like him or just do not want to get involved, you do not have to do anything. Hopefully, you are no longer interested because it seems like he has started to move on. If you are interested, you may have a limited chance right now to talk, flirt and get him interested in you again. Otherwise, there is a chance that he could be taken very soon if he goes after that girl. Good luck, Nyasia!

    My boyfriend and I have been together for over a year now. We are very much in love but we’re in a long distance relationship because he’s in the Army. Our conversations used to be very interesting and came naturally. Now he gets angry with me and says that I don’t talk about anything anymore. How can I get the spark and interesting conversations back in our relationship? I don’t live a super interesting life and do adventurous things everyday because I am a college student, not a secret service agent who risks her life every day and always has a story to tell. Advice please !

      Why don’t you plan out hiking trips or something else? He may just feel like you are not sharing enough of your life with him. When you are in a long distance relationship, it is hard not to be around for all of those little moments that bring you closer to a partner. It seems like he misses being a part of your life and being around you all the time. When he is home, you guys can go on cheap adventures like hiking. While he is away, you may just need to share more about your day, even if it is not very exciting. Perhaps you could jot down little observations or ideas in a notebook during the day so that you have something new to share each night. Long distance relationships are never easy, and strong communication skills are important for making them work. Good luck, Dajah!

    How old would u prefer a kid too start dating?

    • web admin

      February 6, 2016 at 1:17 pm

      It all depends on the maturity of the teenager, their ability to handle a relationship and school and, honestly, the person that they plan on dating. While some parents do not allow dating until 16 or 18, other parents let 12 or 13 year old kids start dating. It is a highly personal decision for the family and the teenager, so there is no right answer.

      Why don’t you just tell him how you feel? If he is dating you, he obviously likes you a lot. Even if he is not in love with you quite yet, I am sure that he would be excited to hear that you care for him so much. Although you can tell him via text if you are nervous, I would just tell him how you feel in real life because it will have a greater impact and be more meaningful. Good luck, Jackie!

    Hi, my boyfriend has this girl who works with him and they talk almost everyday all day most about work but it started to talk about them selfs and sending smilie faces to each other. Before I see this I saw that he checked her Facebook and now I see all the messages on his computer with her. Should I be worried or am I a bit to jealous ?

    • web admin

      February 6, 2016 at 11:17 am

      You might not have reason to be jealous yet, but it sounds like there will soon be a reason to worry. Although he probably just meant to talk to a co-worker, it sounds like they are starting to become closer to each other. As you get to know someone, it is easy to develop feelings even if you do not mean to. It might be a good idea for you to talk about your worries and ask him if he will stop talking to her at all or as much online. If he really loves you, he should be willing to do this so that you do not have to worry. Plus, he probably is already starting to feel things for her without intending to, so it might take a nudge from someone else to keep him away from temptation. Good luck, Layla!

    Hi(: I’ve had a thing with a guy since 6th grade, in the middle of 7th we both agreed to start seeing other people, & now (after a hear and a half) we started flirting with each other but I don’t know if he likes me. He says he does but he just got out of a relationship, what do I do?

    • web admin

      February 6, 2016 at 10:29 am

      Take things slowly and don’t force him into a relationship. If he just got out of a relationship, he may need a bit of time to heal and figure out what he wants. If he just jumps into a relationship immediately with you, then you could end up being the rebound. Stay friends, flirt with him and give him at least a couple of weeks to heal. When he is ready, you guys can try going on a date and starting a relationship. Good luck, Hats!

    I’m really concerned about my boyfriend. He comes over to my house all the time, he make me feel like one in a million and he always pays attention to me, gives me hugs when I stop smiling for a second, says I love you to me all the time, and is big chatter box when I’m around. But . . . He won’t talk to my parents because he’s scared, and doesn’t want to be judged, he has no problem talking to my friends and my cousins, but when my parents or my sisters walk into the room he doesn’t talk.

      Those are completely natural feelings for him to have. Many people are afraid to meet the in-laws—and some people remain uncomfortable around the in-laws for years after getting married. There is nothing that you can do to make him feel more at ease. If he did not like you so much, he would not care what your parents think. From the sound of it, you have found the perfect loving and caring guy. If your only issue is that he is shy around your parents, you must have a pretty good relationship—congrats!

    • web admin

      February 6, 2016 at 7:58 am

      Other than trying not to do things to make him jealous, I am not sure what you can do. Someone who is jealous in a relationship is either insecure about themselves or had a bad experience in the past. With both options, the only thing that you can really do is be the type of girlfriend that he can trust and hope that he stops being so jealous in the future. If it remains a problem in a few months, you can always break up with him so that you do not have to deal with his jealous behavior. Be careful because jealousy can also be an early sign of a controlling relationship.

      You can use one of the ideas on this list, or we have other articles with conversation starters and questions to ask your boyfriend. It can be hard to get a conversation going in the beginning because you are both so nervous and unaccustomed to each other. Once you are both more comfortable and used to be around each other, it will make talking to her much easier. Good luck, Jasmin!

      Jealousy can end many good relationships. If your boyfriend says he is in love with you and supports his love through his actions, there is no reason to question him. Every relationship needs to be based on trust and communication. At some point, you will have to learn to trust him unless he does something to undermine your trust. Good luck, Bree!

    Me and my boyfriend have been together for nearly 2 months and I am worried that he thinks more of his friends than me and also that he is using me for a type of popularity! What shall I do?

    • web admin

      January 27, 2016 at 10:05 am

      It is normal to like and care for your friends. What makes you think that he is just dating you for your popularity? Even if he is more popular by being with you, that does not stop him from genuinely liking you. Do you like him back? Is he a good boyfriend? Have you tried talking to him about this? It would be a hasty decision to break up with him without talking to him at least first. Plus, you may just be worried over nothing. He has been with you for two months and obviously likes you on some level, so you can always just talk to him about your worries. Good luck, Ellie!

    hi, I’ve been dating this guy for 5 months now, but we have been in a long distance relationship since we are official (3-4 months). He’s really the right guy for me but at times, but at times i feel that i’m not good enough for him (this is on my part). He’s pretty reserved when it comes to sweet nothings so it really depends on his mood, but he shares his daily routine and activities, his past with me if he is in the mood, but most of the days i can tell that he is making an effort (Well partially i live a mundane student life). Recently, i noticed that there is or might be something wrong with the both of us. He said that he finds that our daily texts are getting boring, he dont find the excitement about looking forward to my text, and at times, words that he said, he said that dont really meant quote:”just saying/commenting” made me feel hurt at times, like my sincerity wasnt conveyed, I mean how can i do anything we live like 8hours time difference apart. He dont find our conversations interesting and he felt that at times the way i say things made him quote “us” stupid day by day. I know communication is the most important thing when it comes to LDR. He told me to make the conversations more lively, make him look forward to texting him give him the spark that he felt when we are physically dating together. I did almost everything that was above, but i can tell that he is not convinced by the words. What should i do…

      Texts and relationships naturally get boring as couples transition from the infatuation stage of the relationship to the affection stage. Communication is extremely important in a long distance relationship, but he seems to be rather picky about his communication expectations. After all, no one lives a super exciting life every day. Plus, the “spark” that you could get from a text message is drastically different than the spark you would feel in person. Keep dating him, but realize that his unrealistic expectations could lead things to end badly. Sooner or later, he will figure out that he was expecting unrealistic things, but there is no guarantee that it will be in time. :( Good luck!

      Don’t worry! This is a normal experience when you first begin dating someone. Being in a relationship can change the dynamic of your friendship, so it can take sometime to get used to the new balance. Over time, it will get easier as you are around each other more often and develop a new level of comfort with each other. Good luck, Keyanda!

      You could just ask her what she thinks about you dating him. Since she knows him and you have known him for a long time, it will probably help your argument by letting her know who you want to date. The idea of a daughter starting to date can be terrifying for parents, but knowing who the guy is should help her relax as long as she likes him. I would just ask her what she thinks when you guys are alone some time. Afterward, you can just tell her that he asked you out and you want to go on a date with him. Good luck!
