40 Romantic Things to Say to Your Boyfriend

By on April 9, 2014

It seems as though women who were cast with the spell of love are constantly trying to find ways to show their love and appreciation for their partner. And if you’re looking for new ways to show your man you care, why not try out these 40 romantic things to say to your boyfriend? They’ll leave him feeling loved and adored, we guarantee it.

1. I love you.


Ok, so this one is a bit obvious and probably something you do on your own. But sometimes we get lazy in the relationship and forget how important this little statement really is. These three little words hold so much meaning behind them and are so important in a romantic relationship. Never underestimate the power of these words, and always use them with passion. It’s the simplest way to ignite the love and romance in your relationship.

2. Every time I see your face, it lights up my world.

Who doesn’t love to brighten up someone’s life? This simple statement proves to him that he is the light in your life and that he makes you smile without doing a single thing.

3. I don’t want to say I couldn’t live without you, I just wouldn’t want to.


You never want to appear desperate or excessively clingy, so this statement is perfect. It shows him that you can handle yourself on your own but your life wouldn’t be nearly as great without him.


4. We have our ups and downs, but it’s worth it.

This is a great line to use especially after an argument or when things are a bit rocky. Sure, every relationship has problems, but if you can stick together it makes the relationship even that much better. Let him know he’s worth it!

5. My heart races the moment I see you.

Romantic Things to Say to Your Boyfriend07

Remember when you first saw his handsome face and your heart started beating rapidly? Well, that only continues when you’re in love. Let him know he still drives you wild just by seeing his face!

6. I still get butterflies when you come around.


If you still have that nervousness you got when he was just the guy you had a crush on, it must be love. Similar to #5, yet always a crowd pleaser. Your man will love to hear this one! (Plus it lets him know he’s still ‘got it’. Ego boost!)

7. The moment you smile, my troubles disappear.

Romantic Things to Say to Your Boyfriend08


This is just simply beautiful. You know you’re in love when your partner’s smile can make your problems melt away. Let him know what a great impact he has on your life.

8. You are the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

How couldn’t this phrase make someone feel loved and adored? Such a romantic phrase that is sure to make him smile.

9. I wish you were here so I could fall asleep in your arms. (Text)

Ah, but of course! One of the most romantic things of all time: falling asleep in your man’s arms. There’s no way this isn’t an absolutely romantic thing to say!

10. Just wanted to let you know I’m thinking about you right now. (Text)


What a sweet text message! He’ll love to know he’s on your mind even when the two of you are apart.

11. I hope we can grow old together.

This lets him know it isn’t a fling. You’re in it for the long haul and you want him there every step of the way.

12. All the money and gold in the world couldn’t buy my love for you.

Romantic Things to Say to Your Boyfriend09

Your love for him is priceless, and he will love knowing this. (Plus it kind of lets him know you aren’t using him for money, jewelry or anything along those lines. And men like that!)

13. I’m addicted to you and your love.

If your man makes you feel like you just can’t get enough, craving more and more everyday, it’s probably something he should know. He’ll love knowing how badly he has you hooked!

14. I feel so safe and protected when I’m around you.

Men love to be ‘tough’. They love to be the ‘hero’. They love to be the big strong guy that can protect you from anything, so telling him how safe and protected you feel with him is an automatic ego boost- no doubt about it.

15. I didn’t know what true love was until I met you.


Ok, you might have had one or two crushes that you thought was love. You may have even had a five year relationship you thought was love. But trust us honey, when it is TRUE love, you will know it. Letting your man know that you’ve finally found the pot of gold (true love) with him is something that is extremely romantic and passionate.

16. You’re the first thing I think about when I wake up, and the last thing I think about before I fall asleep.

Romantic Things to Say to Your Boyfriend06

Just a long, romantic way to say he’s always on your mind- and trust us, that’s exactly where he wants to be.

17. I would give anything to be with you.

While some relationships are worried over minor things that could potentially break them apart (such as moving, going to different Universities, etc.), you can let your guy know that nothing will break the two of you apart with this simple sentence.

18. I would travel thousands of miles just to be with you.

The perfect thing to say- especially if your partner may be moving far away soon. This tells him you’re committed and long distance won’t damage your relationship.

19. It’d drive me crazy if anything happened to you.

Obviously if you don’t care if something happens to your man, you were probably never in love to begin with. But this sentence tells him how important he is and how devastated you would be should anything bad happen to him.

20. If loving you is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

Romantic Things to Say to Your Boyfriend05

Yeah. You’ve probably heard this statement before. But it’s true, isn’t it? Even if loving your man is wrong in the eyes of other people, in your heart you know its right. This is just one of those sentences you need to say to your man!

21. No man has ever loved me the way you love me.

He’s better than the rest. What guy doesn’t want to hear that? This is a romantic statement that your man needs and wants to hear. ASAP!

22. I wouldn’t change a single thing about you. You’re perfect.

Romantic Things to Say to Your Boyfriend01

You should never want to change the one you’re with. And trust us, letting him know he’s perfect in your eyes gives him comfort and confidence.

23. Nothing will ever break us apart.

Even in the toughest of times, you’ll stick by his side and you won’t let anything tear the two of you apart. Might sound like something out of a cheesy romance novel, but it’s definitely a romantic statement that hits close to home and is something your guy wants to hear.

24. You are so good to me.

Sometimes men wonder if their lady is happy with the way they’re being treated, so why not give him the satisfaction of knowing he’s doing a great job? This way he will be confident and continue what he’s doing!

25. It feels like time stops when you kiss me.

Romantic Things to Say to Your Boyfriend04

Are his kisses really that divine? Does time just simply stop when his lips connect to yours? You HAVE to tell him. He’ll love hearing those words.

26. Words can’t explain how much I love you.

I think we’ve all been there. If you’re so in love that you can’t even express it with words, this is really all you can say.

27. You are my soul mate.

He’s not just your boyfriend. He’s not just your other half. He’s not even just a best friend. He’s your soul mate. And it just doesn’t get much better than that.

28. You’re the only man for me. I don’t want anyone else.

Knock out any insecurities instantly with this simple statement!

29. You complete me.

There’s just something about knowing that you actually complete someone that is really passionate and romantic. Knowing that they were missing something without you is just beautiful. This is definitely something you should say to your man at some point.

30. You bring so much happiness and joy into my life, I can’t believe it.


There’s no way this statement couldn’t make him smile from ear to ear. If your man brings you insurmountable happiness, he should definitely know about it.

31. I’m a better woman when I’m with you.

He will love knowing what a great impact he has on you and your life.

32. I fell in love with you when ______.

Telling him the exact moment when you fell in love with him is a surefire way to get the romance rolling. It will be so romantic and so passionate he won’t even know how to handle it. Relive the experience and tell him immediately!

33. Remember the time we ______.

Tell your lover about a romantic moment the two of you shared, whether it was your first kiss or a steamy session up at the cabin.

34. You’re the one for me.

This is basically declaring to him that he is the only one, and you want to be with him- and only him- for the rest of your days. It’s a great way to hint to him that you are ready to take the plunge and get married.

35. If I could do it all over again, I’d still pick you.

Romantic Things to Say to Your Boyfriend02

No regrets, right? Tell your guy that you would always choose him, even if you had a chance to be with someone else.

36. Thanks for _____.


There’s really no better way to show appreciation and love for someone then thanking them for something they’ve done, whether it was something as simple as taking out the trash or as extravagant as putting together a surprise date night dinner right on the beach.

37. I love that I can be myself around you.

Romantic Things to Say to Your Boyfriend03

This obviously lets your man know he’s dating the real deal. He’ll love this statement!

38. You’re the sweetest man I’ve ever met.

Romantic Things to Say to Your Boyfriend10

Even if he’s tough on the outside, he’ll love knowing that you can see his gentler side.

39. I wish I could hold you forever and never let go.

This lets him know that you really enjoy being with him and wish the two of you could be in each other’s arms for good.

40. I love you because _____.

Take your ‘I love you’ a step further by pointing out something you absolutely love about your man. You can’t go wrong with this romantic statement!

      It is normal to feel this way. All you can do is go ahead and try kissing. Everyone feels nervous the first time, and it will get easier. On the bright side, it sounds like he is as nervous as you are—he will be so focused on what he could be doing wrong that he won’t even notice if you are a little awkward. Good luck, Izzy!

      There is nothing to judge. It is great to see that you love him and that the two of you treat each other well. Continue to do so and your relationship will grow in a positive manner. Be sure to talk with him and spend time with him as often as possible. Thank you for commenting, Emma!

    me and my boyfriend are 12 and we’ve held hands and hugged, but I wanna kiss he has said he wants to make out but I only want to like give him a quick little kiss before he leaves or like before he goes to get on the bus, but I scared I’ll take it to far.

      If you only want to kiss him and not make out, then only kiss him. He will likely be too surprised to try to make out with you if you do it before he leaves. It is also possible that he may be too shy to make out with you if you kiss him in public. That said, be sure to share your feelings with him so he understands your desires. Enjoy life and have fun. Have a great day, Emma!

      If he is your boyfriend, then he most certainly wants to hold your hand as well. Next time that the two of you are together and walking around, then grab his hand and hold it. Look into his eyes when he looks at you, then smile. It is certain that he is waiting for you to take action. Enjoy life, Jordan!

      We don’t live in the 1950s anymore, so there is no reason that a girl cannot make a move. Plus, you already know that he likes you and is dating you, so it isn’t like this would be that forward at all. Go ahead and hold his hand the next time you two are together. Good luck, Le!

    So I’m only 14 and my boyfriend that I’ve been dating for two weeks is the best. Everyone is always saying high school couples don’t last but here’s the thing we are already best friends he is like my best friend and boyfriend. I love him so much and I can’t get enough of him. Here’s the thing I’m not allowed to date till grade ten so I have to keep this from my parents. And it’s really frustrating because my boyfriend is the sweetest guy ever. My mom says it’s cause kids these days move to fast with like sex and stuff the thing is I’d never do that and I’m not willing to lose my boyfriend and my dad legit would kill me if he knew help me please!!!!!!

      Because he is your best friend and the two of you have such strong feelings for each other, it is likely that your relationship will last. However, because you are hiding this relationship from your parents, you may find some push back. Have your parents meet his parents and see if both groups of them decide that they will support your relationship. It is important to be open and honest with everyone, so do what you can to make that possible. Enjoy life, Fai.

    I actually came to this site to see what I conjure ideas for a pillow case for my boyfriend. He has done everything to make me feel special and has opened himself from all walks in his life. We met in person and his birthday is coming up and wanted to give him something personal, something special to make him think of me and would have my scent so that when we are far apart, he will always think of me.

      That is a great reason to visit our site. Please feel free to share whatever ideas that you come up with. It is certain that what comes from your heart will be your best option for your gift. Perhaps speak with him about what kind of desires that he may have. Coconut oil in your hair may have the capacity to remain your scent, however sometimes a floral bouquet is the best route to follow.

    I’ve been in a long distance relationship for about 1 yr now, with a man i met on face book. It seems like things are slowing down a bit but, i am madly in love with him. He tells me that he loves me with every ounce of his being and cant wait to start a future with me. But he lives so far away and it makes me sad to think of what he may be giving up just to move to my state to be with me. Tho, he tells me that he wont be giving anything up and wants to move late this year. Does this seem a little fast? I cant seem to get him to come visit because of his job but I’m thinking a visit would be better 1st, seeing as how we’ve never met in person yet.

      Before you plan on moving in together or anything of that sort, you should meet him in person. That said, assuming you are both adults, it is normal for a non-internet based relationship to have the possibility of moving in together after a year of dating. Speak to him further and make an attempt to have him come see you.

    Hi I’ve been talking to a older guy online we met threw mitral friends. I’m 23 him 36 he is amazing and talks about the future how he wants to hear me say I do and have his babies. But he lives out of state and he already saying I love you but I feel I love him too and wish the same things. He’s has cancer I’m scared I might lose the best part of me.

      There is always a chance of getting hurt when you are in any type of relationship, so you just have to be willing to take that risk. You said that he had cancer–do you know what his diagnosis is? If it is terminal, it is up to you if you want to continue the relationship. While it would be nice to hang around and be there for him, you could also be there as just a friend, and you do not have to feel pressured to be his morale support. If you do like him and want to date him, perhaps you should try meeting up with him in real life! You have a lot in common, and your friends obviously thought that you guys would be a good match for each other. Whatever you want to do though, it is entirely up to you. Don’t let the fear of what will happen stop you from doing what you want in life. Good luck, Shelby Lewis!

    There’s a guy I know I’m in love with, but I’m afraid I’m not good enough for him or he’ll reject me if I tell him. I’ve been in love with him for a while, but I don’t know when it started exactly because I’ve been pushing it away from some odd years. I know I’m in love with him because I can’t stop thinking about him (not in an obsessive way) and his amazing personality, which a lot about him has caught my attention and I’m fine with his flaws. What should I do? Do I act bold and ask him how he feels or do I wait and see if he approaches me first? FYI, I’m a very shy girl who has a low self esteem and likes to keep to a low profile.

      Be bold and approach him! If he likes you, he may be too shy to ever make a move–or he might not make a move because he may be afraid that you do not like him back. If you do not make a move, you may never find out if he likes you back or not. Even though it would hurt to get rejected, it would be better than spending the rest of your life wondering what could have been. It’s up to you though. If you want to wait and hope that he makes the first move, you can. After all, you can always make a move later if you get up the courage.

    How to gain trust after your partner cheats?

      January 20, 2016 at 2:56 pm

      There really is not a way to gain trust again after a partner cheats. The only thing that really helps is time. Over the course of a few months or years, their faithfulness will help to earn your trust back. Other things like not talking to the opposite gender and not keeping secrets can help to speed the process, but the main technique is just to give it time. Good luck, Kiki!
