Keep It Short And Sweet

Are You Having Trouble Expressing Love?

Love messages don’t need to be lengthy to have the intended effect. In fact, sometimes the little ones are all that you need. It’s a quick and easy way to communicate that you love your partner, even on a busy day. Sweet love messages only take a moment to send, but they can bring so much joy. 

Here are some examples:

  • I can’t wait to see you.
  • I miss you.
  • I love you and just wanted you to know I was thinking of you.
  • I am yours.
  • Thinking about you all day.
  • Can’t wait to come home to you.
  • You are beautiful.
  • You are handsome.
  • You rock my world.
  • I’m so happy to be with you.
  • You mean the world to me.
  • I don’t know where I would be without you.
  • Thinking of you is what’s getting me through my day.
  • Thank you for being my wife/husband/girlfriend/boyfriend.
  • My life is so much better with you in it.
  • I am so blessed to have you in my life.
  • I love it when I catch you looking at me.
  • I love being yours.
  • You are all that I want.

Get A Little Romantic

Romance can go a long way, and women aren’t the only ones who like to be romanced. If you want to let your significant other know how much they mean to you, send them one of these romantic love messages:

  • Every day with you has been amazing, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us next. The best is yet to come.
  • I didn’t know what love truly was until I met you. I love you.
  • You were the turning point in my life when things started to get good. I would hate to see what my life would look like without you in it.
  • When you look at me, my heart races, and my palms get sweaty. After all these years, you still do it for me.
  • I didn’t know who I truly was until I met you. You have shown me the person that I want to be, and I want to get better for you every day.
  • Your love is the only armor I need to fight the battle of life.
  • When you are by my side, I feel like I can accomplish anything.
  • You make the world such a better place and light up my days. I never want to live in a world without you.
  • I spent all my life dreaming about the perfect person, and then I found you.
  • Your smile is the best thing I have ever seen.
  • I remember the first day that I saw you, and I knew my life would never be the same. I fall in love with you more each day.
  • I wish that I was kissing you instead of sitting here missing you.
  • The best feeling in the world is when I fall asleep in your arms.

Get A Little Corny

You may have heard of super corny pickup lines, but have you heard of corny love messages? Use one of these lines to put a smile on your partner’s face while telling them how much you love them.

  • If loving you is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
  • My eyes are jealous of my heart because you are always close to my heart, but not always close to my eyes.
  • Eight letters, three words, one meaning: I love you.
  • You’re there, and I’m here. One of us is in the wrong place.
  • Do you have a Band-Aid? Because I just scraped my knee falling for you.
  • Do you know what my favorite thing is in the whole world? The second word of this message.
  • I’ve missed you for the last 24 hours / 1440 minutes / 86,400 seconds.
  • Calling me cute is nice, calling me hot is great, but calling me yours is all I want.

Get A Little Personal


If you have some time as you craft your message, take the time to get personal. These ideas will get you started, but the details will need to come from your mind and heart.

  • Get vulnerable and let your partner know exactly what it was that they did that won you over. 
  • Don’t worry about trying to put these in any type of order. Just say something along the lines of “There are so many reasons that I love you, but here are some of my favorites:” and then have at it.
  • List some things you want to do with your partner. It could be something big like traveling the world or something small like having a picnic in the park on Saturday. The important thing is that you are communicating something personal that you want to experience with the other person.

Types Of Romantic Love Messages To Use

The fastest way is to tell your partner how you feel be face-to-face, but if you aren’t in person, there are still multiple options. You could write a love letter and mail it to them. There is something nice about receiving mail that is not a bill or junk mail. You can also send an email or a text message. If you don’t have time for a long note but want to leave a physical message of love, you can put a few love words for them on a sticky note and place them around their house or car.

Learn To Show Your Love In Online Therapy

Learning to be vulnerable can be difficult especially if you have had painful relationships in the past. But communicating your love for your significant other is important in building a healthy relationship. People are not mind-readers, and if you don’t tell them how you feel and remind them of it on a regular basis, they won’t know what you are thinking. 

BetterHelp has licensed therapists who want to help you build the strongest relationship possible. They can help you find the underlying issues that keep you from fully committing and opening yourself up to the other person.

Of course, if you’re having trouble being vulnerable with your romantic partner, it’s likely you’ll find talking to a therapist in person challenging as well. Some people prefer online counseling to traditional counseling in an office setting a better alternative for this very reason. In the comfort of your home, you may feel more at ease and be able to talk about your feelings and emotions more openly. All you need is an internet connection. 

Research in the field of mental health has confirmed that online therapy can be an effective mode of couples counseling.  A recent study found that this type of counseling can help partners navigate problems in the relationship and address issues such as parenting and mental health challenges. Researchers also noted that digital therapies reduced some common barriers to traditional types of treatment. 


Romantic love messages might not seem important to you, but they may be very important to the other person. It’s important not to take the other person for granted and to let them know how much they mean to you. No person is ever going to grow tired of hearing that there is someone who loves them, appreciates them, and cherishes them. 

Make sure you alternate the romantic messages that you are focusing on, so you aren’t just repeating the same thing over and over again. The more personal the message is, the more it will mean to the person who is receiving it.

There's no shame in reaching out for help if you're earnest about conveying your love in more meaningful gestures or words. A licensed online therapist at BetterHelp can help you tap into your emotions and find the words to articulate what's in your heart.
