40 Romantic Things to Say to Your Boyfriend

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.

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.
