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.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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?
  • 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…

  • You’ll be the last think I think of before I fall asleep and the first thing I think of when I wake up.
  • Dreaming keeps me going. It means I don’t have to be apart from you for so long
  • Starlight, star-bright, you’re the only star I see tonight.
  • I don’t want to fall asleep because reality with you is better than any dream.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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!
  • 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…

  • In dreams and love, there are no impossibilities. – Janos Aranay
  • Laugh and the world laughs with you, snore and you sleep alone. – Anthony Burgess
  • My night has become a sunny dawn because of you. – Ibn Abbad
  • 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
  • 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!

      Your best option is to speak directly and honestly with her about your thoughts and feelings. This will give her the opportunity to share herself with you as well. Take this time to determine when you would feel most comfortable to speak with her. This will allow her to feel more comfortable to speak with you about her thoughts and feelings as well. Have a great day, Edelyn!

      It sounds as though the one with a religious connection with you may not want to develop a relationship with you. Often times, “brother/sister” is a sign of a close emotional or spiritual connection. However, it normally means that there is a lack of physical connection. You may want to take this time to determine what you are looking for in a relationship. Good luck, Xmas!

      If it is too intimidating to just ask her out, keep talking to her a bit longer. If she just stopped dating someone, it may be a good idea to wait a little longer anyway. Once you are ready, just ask her out. If she likes you, it won’t matter how you ask her out. If she doesn’t like you, then how you ask her out won’t suddenly change her mind. Just relax and go for it!

    I dated this gril for over 8 years. We were engaged for awhile. She broke it off with me and said she wants me in my life just as a friend. She texts me every day good morning and goodnight. She always wants to hangout. I have full custody of my daughter she helped raise since she was 5 months old. She still wants to be around me and my daughter. I’m so confused. I love her with all my heart and it hurts every time I hangout out with her.

      Speak directly and honestly with her about your thoughts and feelings. If she doesn’t want to be with you in a romantic relationship, then perhaps you need space to develop a new relationship. She can remain friends with you, but it is confusing to your emotional understanding of your relationship. Speak with her at this time. Best of luck, Sparky!

      If she is not willing to be friends with you, then your first step it to attempt to be friends. If you once were friends and she stopped being your friend, then you may want to allow her to fade from your thoughts and feelings. It is best that you continue not to drink and smoke. Speak directly and honestly with her about your thoughts and feelings. If she wants to develop a relationship with you, then great. If not, then move on. Have a great day, Yash!

      She may be interested in developing a relationship with you again. She may also want to relive old memories with you. If you want to be with her again, then your best option is to spend time with her in person. If nothing happens, then explain to her what your thoughts and feelings are about your relationship. If your relationship develops anew, then you will be able go from there. Have a great day, K!

      It is impossible to make someone like you unless they at least have some type of feelings for you. She probably said yes to the initial date because she wanted to see if there were any feelings there on her part. Once she realized that there weren’t, she told you the truth. Unless something changes with her in the future, you may have to learn how to live without her. 🙁

      It sounds like she just wants to be friends with you. It might not be just that she likes mature guys; she may just be interested in you as a friend. If you can handle being around her as a friend, stay friends with her because she may change her mind someday. If you cannot handle being just friends with her, you may want to move on or you could end up waiting around forever for her to like you. If she does not already like you somewhat, you cannot make her like you.

    I have a crush on this boy at my school. He’s really cute and i’ve liked him for some time now. I finally got the guts to get his number at our recent military ball. I didn’t think he would actually give it to me but he did. We text sometime but we can never seem to keep the conversation going. I’ve been hurt a lot so sometimes it takes me some time to actually commit but I really like him and don’t know what to do. Any suggestions? Do we have any chances of being together?

      You are already doing everything right! Keep talking to him and see where things go! Try to ask him questions about himself–people naturally like talking about themselves, so it could help you keep the conversation going. We also have more texting ideas on Her Interest that you could check out. If it is still hard to talk to him via text, try talking to him in person to see if that makes things easier. Good luck, Breee!

    I am falling for a woman who has been a friend for a few years. Every time I saw her, she was with her boyfriend who was a very jealous and manipulative person.

    They split up and she met another guy. They have been together ever since, but he scares her when she talks to other guys. He strikes inanimate objects; never her, but still gets the point across that he is intentionally putting fear into her.

    The past few weeks we have been hanging out; she tells me she has never met a sweeter and more caring person in her life. We made love twice, and her only concern is her parents not liking me due to her first lover spreading lies about me.

    I’ve been in plenty of relationships, but what we have is something else. Something I’ve never experienced before. Something amazing.

    She has her senior prom coming up and is going with her current boyfriend. She plans on leaving him afterwards. I’ve never felt like this before and am very nervous about her family not liking me. Any tips?

      Continue to be a good friend to her. Don’t worry about the lies that her first boyfriend told about you. She can easily explain to her family that those stories are not true. If you want to develop a relationship with her, then wait for her current relationship to end. Hopefully she realizes that she doesn’t want to be in a relationship with someone who is potentially violent like her current partner. Best of luck, Austin!

    I have a best friend which I love so much. Before we met she wasn’t having a BF She told me this. But during the time we started going out and sharing things together, then I told her how I felt about her cos I couldn’t keep it anymore. That was when she told me she got a lover now. I really cared for her, and gave her all the attention she needed during that period of time. I even brought her flower, wrote her my own lyrics, cuddle her in times of need, cherish and love her for real. She understood this, the type of guy I was and how lovely I was towards her. But, had a BF during my time with her which she never told me about it. We even made love, Idk what to call it. I know she likes me, she tell me this everytime. Now she got upset and uncomfortable because of the flower I brought her. Telling me that she wanna have a distance and doesn’t want a relationship couple with me, just friends. But still didn’t tell me about her BF. I thought a lot about it, even if I didn’t know her for long time, she’s just not the type that’ll get uncomfortable cos of the flower. She couldn’t tell me this in words, we don’t talk as we use to. But still, my feelings for her never change for any reason. I still write and ask about her day. But she never ask. Then she started putting the guy’s pic and hers on whatsapp, making a relationship status notable for me to see. Then I understood what she was trying to tell me. I needed to hear it personally, we met and I asked her if it was true? Then she said yes, it was. I asked for how long? She said, during the time we were going out and I told her about my feelings. I can barely say I wasn’t down at this moment, cos she knew she has hurt my feeling so bad. I don’t hate her, I still love her. I’m confused, I don’t eat anymore, I don’t stay focus in school anymore, lost concentration, she knows how I feel for her. But she hurts me so bad. I try to be myself for me cos I promised her I’ll never change no matter what happen. She promised this too, but she broke her promise. I still haven’t change, still haven’t move on, I can’t sleep well, I can’t make good music, I don’t want to lose it. She still wants me to be her friend, to talk with her. I tryna be a good friend to her even when I know this is difficult. I’m happy for her success, I told her it will be more polite if she say goodbye, rather than keep silence if she wanna let it go. But she said no, is not her intention to say goodbye now. That she still care about me, and don’t wanna break up with everything. That she don’t know if I can be this way with her. That she really likes me, and won’t stop because she’s in a relationship. But it’s clear this’s a friendship thing we gat. She don’t bother to write me, if I don’t write her. I’ve never experience this kinda feeling before. When I don’t write her 2 days she thinks I’m upset. And then I miss her. After some months, we started going out again after gym just to chill, talk, and eat. I don’t want to lose her, my love for her is genuine. Please, I need advice on what to do in this kinda situation. What should I do?

      She is in a relationship, so you should not seek to develop a romantic relationship with her at this time. Remain her friend and treat her with kindness and compassion. You can continue to love her, but she has made her feelings toward you clear. She is not interested in developing a romantic relationship with you at this time. Take this time to look inward and determine what you want for your future without her. Best of luck, Leo!

      Leo if I must tell you from experience try and move on, try your best to develop that fellings you have for her for another lady and gradually your mind will go off her, cos when you continue thinking about her you will not be doing yourself any good than hurting and starring an old wound often which will get no healling.
