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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

      There may be various reasons for his change of behavior. If you feel that this is an issue, then you may want to speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. This will help the two of you overcome any concerns or stresses that you may have at this time. Nourish your relationship by spending additional time with him in person.

    One of the worst things that men do to women in relationships (and sometimes vice versa) is take their partner for granted. Everyday that you see your partner, there will ALWAYS be one thing they do that you can show appreciation for. Simple acts of appreciation just simply tell them, without a whole lot of time and money, how much they matter to you and why you are so happy they are in your life. It’s one of the reasons why I hate Valentine’s Day. Everyday should be Valentine’s Day. All the Valentine’s Day ads are geared towards men (never women, BTW) that rarely do ANYTHING to express their appreciation for their partner. Everyday you should always say something like, “Thanks for putting the dishes away, it’s your thoughtfulness that is one of the many reasons why I love you so dearly.” You would be stunned how many couples NEVER do something as simple as this.

    i’ve been dating my boyfriend since just before i went off to college. we live a little over 1.5 hours away and he’s the only one with a car. we havent gotten to see each other since i left. we facetime all the time, we even sleep on facetime with each other. im starting to get nervous that the distance is becoming hard on him. he’s started becoming more distant towards me and im getting worried. i love him so much and i dont even know how to show him. i have never felt a love like this before and i dont want to loose him. he is honestly the best thing that has ever happened to me.

      The two of you are maintaining a long distance relationship. Due to a lack of transportation, the two of you are unable to see each other in person. It is certainly possible that the distance is causing stress in your relationship. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Nourish this relationship, if possible, by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Madds!

          What a wonderful story! Long-distance relationships are just as likely as in-person relationships. The main factor that determines your relationship’s success is whether you two want it to work or not. Congrats on finding love and good luck together!

      He is interested in maintaining a relationship that is sexually expressive over text. It sounds as though the two of you have decided to get engaged, which means that his expectations may be reasonable. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Anon!

      I know how you feel. My Bf. and 8 are not engaged as of yet, but like you it is my first “real” relationship and is also long distance. I’d you are engaged then I am assuming he loves you. I do not have walls up, but being open and vulnerable was hard for me as well, but my bf was loving and patient with me. This made me feel safe, and gave me the freedom to vow and become more secure in opening up. I am an open person, but when it is somone like this it is a whole other level of vulnerability, and that can be scary. Talk to him tell him what’s up. If he loves you then he will be patient and work with you. Even talk to somone outside if needed. Practice makes perfect. You don’t want to be married just learning how to open up. Good luck!

      It sounds as though you feel a strong social and emotional connection with him. However, the two of you spoke and determined that you would not maintain a romantic relationship at this time. Determine what you want for your future without him, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Savannah!

Since you want to keep him close, you should nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion at all times. This will bring you many benefits in the future. Have a great day, Quincy!

    My boyfriend is amazing,I love him so much,he has trust issues,but because every relationship he has been in,he has been cheated on.And I completely understand.He has the hardest time opening up so he doesn’t,he has never had anyone there for him that he can open up to and he thinks no one understands and he is scared to let me in.Im not mad,it just upsets me that my baby is so broken,I wish he truly believed that I’m here for him and that I’m not going to hurt him.Everytime I try to get him to open up,he acts like he wants to but he’s scared.How can I possibly prove to him that he can trust me,except for doing what I’m already doing and that’s listening and being as supportive as i can possibly be? I just wish I could take away all his pain

      His previous relations have influenced him to be paranoid about his relationships. The only way to prove your loyalty is to be honest and supportive of him. If his concerns rise again, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Brittney!

    so this man I love him oh well that’s what I think and I feel like he only comes to me when he misses/wants me and starts telling me how much he loves me and doesn’t wanna lose me, he only shows that he cares when ever I leave him and not talk to him that’s the only time he will express his love, he gets jealous when he sees me with other guys or when am on my phone but when ever I ask him what he wants from us he says a future with me but he doesn’t know how to show it because of his past and all that. I don’t know what to believe or think, at times I feel neglected and ignored,and just when I try to adjust to us not being serious then he comes and my feelings for him will start all over again. am not sure if he is playing me and only wants me for sex or he is just confused

      He has shared his thoughts and feelings with you. You do not trust him, and you may have a reason for not trusting him. It is certainly reasonable to believe that he is interested in nourishing a sexual relationship with you, as that is a normal desire for a romantic partner. Decide what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Dee!

      He is interested in developing a relationship with your friend. He is not aware that she is not interested in developing a relationship with him. Speak with your friend about your thoughts and feelings. Advise your crush to speak with your friend. She will inform him of her feelings, and he may find that his feelings for you have grown recently. Have a great day, Ankita!

        Just found a new boyfriend… He have 2 kids with his ex girlfriend who is married by now,one with his current girlfriend, he found her with a baby which he have 3 kids with the fourth one that is not his, and so he is into me now.. He buy me flowers, take me out, send me money even if I didn’t request for it, he complains about the cheating of his girlfriend but truly I don’t respond to that I just listen, am I doing the right thing to keep quite when he complains about her doings and that he will live her?

          If he is still with his girlfriend while he is dating you, I wouldn’t count on him leaving her. If she was so horrible, he’d have left her before he started dating you or the minute he met you. Since he hasn’t, you should probably not assume that he will leave her anytime soon.

        Your partner is uncertain about what he wants for the future of your relationship. Make a decision about what you feel is appropriate. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Determine if you believe whether or not it would be appropriate to continue this relationship without the committal of your partner. Have a great day, Fab!

      If you feel as though he wants to end your relationship, then he probably is thinking that way as well. Take this time to determine what you want with your future. If there are no current plans for the two of you to be with each other in person, then it is likely that this relationship will continue on its course. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Nish!
