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!

18. You make my heart race. 

He must be pretty great to make your heart race. Why not tell him?

This is such a better option then just saying, ‘Oh you’re so sweet’, which he’s probably heard 100 times already.Cute things to text your boyfriend-06

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

Here’s another corny text, but boy does it bring out the biggest smiles.

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!

    I’ve been with him for almost two years. Recently he’s had mood swings and he becomes sad often. I need to know how to cheer him up better.

      Spend more time with him. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. This will give him the opportunity to share his thoughts with you. If he refuses to speak with you, then look inward and determine what you want with your future. Have a great day, Lizz!

    My boyfriend is super sweet and he’s hoesntly perfect. I love him so much. But the problem is it is long distance and we’ve never met, we had a mutual friend and started dating. What can I do to make sure we stay in this relationship even when we aren’t together physically? I love him so much I couldn’t handle the heart break if we split.

      You should try to vary your conversations between texts and voice. You will find that your conversations will grow if you speak on the phone. This will allow your text messages to become more full. You will want to see him in person when you are able to do so. Long distance relationships normally end because of a lack of physical contact. Best of luck, Kate!

    I have been dateing my boyfriend for about 2months now. I really like him but i dont know what to do to show him I am not really romantic but he is and is so sweet. I just don’t know what to say to him when I see him.

      Just continue to spend time with him. Perhaps go out with him on a nature walk. Try to learn about what his hobbies are. Share your interests with him as well. By doing so, you will find that your relationship will grow stronger over time. Best of luck, Torie!

    So I’ve been dating this guy for a few days now, I really like him and he really likes me, but I just feel like we aren’t connecting. I’m mean he seems really happy when we are together but, like I said, we just aren’t connecting! My parents know we are dating so that made me feel better about dating him but I still feel like there’s something holding us back. So what should I do to make this relationship last??

      February 18, 2017 at 1:00 pm

      You need to try to understand what is causing this rift. Speak directly to him about your thoughts and concerns. He may be able to give you some insight into his thoughts. The only way to find an answer to your question is to be clear with your thoughts. Best of luck, Jenna!

    So..I am in a long distance relationship..and when I say long distance (he lives in America, I live in New Zealand) we have never met we only text each other..we have been together for nearly a year and there’s not a day go by when I don’t think about him..but..he always says these really cute things about me and I feel so awkward when I don’t have anything to say back..and I’m kinda scared to say something about him because he is one of those guys that isn’t really into being called “sweet” or “hot” how can I make my boyfriends heart pop without sounding weird..Help!

      Continue to speak with him. Your relationship may be better served if you have some verbal conversations with him as well. Text and message based relationships can diminish overtime because of a lack of connection. Voice conversations will help the two of you better understand each other. Best of luck, Skye!

      February 14, 2017 at 11:23 am

      Speak with him about what he feels is romantic. Perhaps he wants to go out with you for moonlit walks. Maybe he wants you to give him gifts. Maybe he wants other things. Your best option is to speak with him about what his desires are. Best of luck, Triyasha!

      Continue to speak with him as often as possible. Speak with him over the phone instead of texting. Better yet, spend time with him in person. The more time that you are together, the better. You will find that your relationship will grow stronger as you become closer to him. Best of luck, Trinity!

    So I like this boy that is in grade 10 and he is the one and I know it as a fact. He makes me happy in a way no one else can. But the thing is… I am in grade 8. He told me he doesn’t care about age and neither do I, but my friends say I am way too young… help!! I don’t know what to do…

      Your friends are not the final decision makers for your life. There is no reason to not begin dating him. You may want to meet his parents and have them meet your parents. This will give them peace of mind and they may begin to support your relationship. Best of luck, Molly!

    I really like this guy from my class. we studied together from childhood and now when we are about to leave school at 10th grade i falled for him and i know he also feels for me. But we never fight or get angry with eachother. He is always so nice to me and im nice to him. Is this weird that we dont fight?

      It is a great thing that the two of you don’t fight with each other. Try to speak with him more often. Spend additional time with him as well. The more that you are in his life, the more that he will feel close to you. Take this time to determine what you can do to nourish your relationship. Best of luck, Pragmati!

        My boyfriend acts a little awkward when I ask him if he likes our relationship.Is that because he’s nervous

          If he is remaining with you and your relationship, then he probably likes your relationship. The question that you are asking is an uncomfortable question and it would make anyone seem nervous. If you have reason to believe that he doesn’t want to be with you, then speak directly and honestly with him about your concerns. Have a good day, Qiryn!

    My sort of boyfriend met 5 years ago when we were 12. He lives abroad where we go for holidays 2 weeks a year, and I live in England. I’ve always had a little crush on him, but this year we started messaging and he told me he likes me too! It was great but I know the reality of the distance and that we are only 16 and 17. However this year he is coming to stay with my family for a week in Easter to do work experience and I’m going to stay with his family for 4 weeks in the summer to help improve my French. I really like him and every time I get a message from him I smile.
    Do you think our relationship can last over different countries and the length of time that we don’t see each other?

      Your relationship can be developed over long distances. It is not uncommon for people to establish strong relationships with other people from different countries. You may find that additional conversations will best serve your relationship. Try to meet him more often when you are an adult. Best of luck, Zara!

    I have only been dating my boyfriend for about a month and When i text him sometimes the converstion goes dead or he just doesn’t seem interested but that’s just how he is how do i tell how he actually feels. He’s really sweet at times but I just want to keep my conversations going with him when I’m on the phone or texting .

      You may want to try to move your conversations from text messages to verbal conversations. Perhaps you have only enough time to talk over the phone, but anything will help. If you are able to spend time in person, then you will be able to have more conversations face to face. This will help your conversations grow and you will find that the two of you will become closer. Have a great day, Alyssa!

    hoooo boy here we go.
    so sorry for the long thing but i had a lot to say….even if most of it probably isnt important…

    So me n my boyfriend are 14. we were friends for a couple of years, and we really started hanging out some time late last year. then hospital stuff happened (which he was really worried since i didnt get a chance to tell anyone what happened) , then we hung out more when i got out and then bam! we’re dating. so before the hospital things happened, we hung out as friends and we both liked eachother. then a while after i got out, we started dating.
    Sooo the reason i included hospital stuff is because i went there for depression issues. sometimes when we hang out i get very sad out of nowhere (my doctor is looking at possible bi polar disorder). another thing is that we used to see eachother all the time in school, but now i temporarily cant go and am stuck doing homebound. i miss him and in the small amount of time i get to see him when he comes over or we go out to the park or something, i get depressed for (usually) no reason.

    i never read any of these until tonight. i wanted to find a way to subtly tell him that i love him without seeming clingy or wierd. i havent been able to find really good anything so far. he always texts me “good night i love you” before he goes to sleep (which is before me) and i reply back with “good night, i love you too” im worried it will get boring for him…
    i also dont want him to worry about me when i get really sad. it makes him think he did something wrong, even if i tell him he didnt do anything wrong. we kiss sometimes, so i was thinking of doing that, but im not so sure…

      The best option for you and your relationship is to try to spend more time with him in person. Next time that the two of you speak, make plans to meet up. A nature walk or a meal can be a great start. From there, continue to spend time with each other and learn about his thoughts and feelings. Share your ideas and relationship desires in person. Best of luck, Mikey!

    So I’m going to be 13 in June and I met this guy on kik (he’s 17) and we’ve been talking ever since September. He’s always been there for me and we text eachother every day. We’ve never met eachother but we both say I love you to eachother a lot. I honestly love him so much and he feels the same but we’re not actually in a ‘relationship’ just yet. I was wondering what age might be best for us to start actually dating? Thanks 🤗

      You can begin dating at whatever age that you feel comfortable dating. However, you may want to speak to your parents about their feelings regarding your dating age. They will have the final say. You should also introduce your friend to your parents. If your parents are not aware of your relationship, then it will not be able to continue and flourish. Best of luck, Grace!

    I’m 14 and I’m texting a guy, whose 14 as well, that i met in snapchat. I know he lives in the same city as me but, we have never met in person. The weird thing is that its like i can tell him anything. I know alot of stuff about him and he knows alot of stuff about me. I really really like him and I’ve never felt like this and I don’t know what to do. And he would say he loves me and he makes me feel special. But my mom doesn’t know about him and she overprotected ever since my dad left her. I want to be happy but I want to make my mom proud of me. I don’t know what to do, please help me

      If you want to continue this relationship, then you will want your mother to know about him. Otherwise, your relationship may not be able to flourish. Try to set up a time to meet him. You may want your mother to drop you off, and she may want to stay nearby during your date. This will be for your safety and for her peace of mind. Best of luck, Euphony!
