80 romantic love messages for the special woman in your life

These sweet sentiments will make her fall in love all over again.

Love letters may have been replaced by texts, but there's no reason your messages can't be just as romantic.

“Sending love notes may seem like a small gesture, but it’s actually a grand gesture in keeping the two of you connected and in love —especially if your sweetie’s love language is words of affirmation,” Michelle Mouhtis, LCSW, a licensed therapist and relationship coach, tells

Don't worry, you don't have to compose a Shakespearean sonnet to impress her (though we included a few on this list, just in case!). “The most important aspect is that it’s in your own words in a way that’s meaningful to you," Mouhtis adds.

Dr. Ashley Lowe-Simmons, DSW, LCSW-C, FSW, and host of Convos With a Clinician echoes Mouhtis' sentiment, adding that love notes "allow outward expression of inward feelings."

When it comes time to figure out what to write, Lowe-Simmons recommends the following formula: "Acknowledge your partner, boost up the areas that need improvement and acknowledge those things that are done well."

Mouhtis suggests tapping into your romantic — albeit cheesy — side. "It’s OK to be corny! What matters is that the message is meaningful and true to your love for your partner — no matter what that sounds like," she says.

Of course, even the greatest writers take inspiration from others. Below, we compiled a list of sweet, silly, and sentimental sayings to send the woman in your life. You can customize any of these suggestions to reflect the unique qualities of your relationship.

From a short text before date night, to a longer missive for your long-distance love, these messages, lyrics, and quotes will deepen the bond between you and your partner.

Short and sweet love messages for her 

  • “Good morning, beautiful. I’m thinking of you today and every day.” A random “good morning” note will start her day with a smile on her face. “She will also appreciate hearing that you are thinking of her, especially if your lives are busy right now," Mouhtis adds.
Love notes for her
  • “Every time I am in your presence it is a reminder of why I'm married to you. I just love being near you.” “This is a good message for your partner because it acknowledges the role of being present in the presence of our partners,” Lowe-Simmons says. Tailor this message to your relationship status. If you’re not married, simply swap in “why you’re my girlfriend” or “why you’re my fiancée” for “why I married you.”
  • “I can’t wait to see you later. Be ready in your PJs to watch our show.” “Nothing makes her more excited than knowing she can be her full comfortable self around you," Mouhtis says. "When you reassure her that she can be in her pajamas and you still have a great time with her, you’re saying to her that she can feel safe to be comfortable with you." Plus, this message shows you're eager for a night together. “Telling her that you are excited to see her later will show her that even though you’ve been together for quite some time, coming home to her is still the best part of your day. Excitement keeps the spark alive!” 
  • “You know what ... you’re right!” This suggestion from Siera Phillips, M.S.Ed., LCPC, had us laughing, but it’s so true. “Always tell a woman she’s right no matter the circumstances,” Phillips tells
  • “I choose you, today and every day for the rest of our lives.” Your partner is the most special person in the world to you, and nobody could ever take her place. Show her that you’re forever devoted to her.
Love notes for her
  • “I’m your number 1 fan.” “Showing her that you are fanatically infatuated with her will make her smile,” Phillips says. If you want to make this message just a touch longer, consider adding one or two reasons why you’re rooting for her so hard these days.
  • “Just a reminder that you'll always be the Pam to my Jim.” Mouhtis suggests this funny love message for fans of The Office, but feel free to swap in any lovebirds from your go-to show. “A character’s on-screen romance says a thousand words, and will be sure to bring a smile on her face."
  • “I just sent some money to your account to go shopping!” “Need I explain more?” Phillips says.
  • “I loved you yesterday, I love you today, and I look forward to loving you every day for the rest of my life.” In one succinct sentence, you can sum up how much she means to you. “This love note is a promise to love your partner every day and is just so full of love,” Sameera Sullivan, a matchmaker and relationship expert, tells
  • “You are an answered prayer. I had a desire to have three things in a partner and you are all three of those things.” Think about all the qualities you dreamed of in a partner — and see how she stacks up. Lowe-Simmons suggests writing this note and seeing if she can guess what those three things are, or adding a few lines to explain it for yourself.
Love notes for her
  • “You’re my person.” Take a cue from “Grey’s Anatomy” and tell your partner that she will always hold the number one spot in your heart.
  • “This song is the perfect depiction of how you make me feel.” Hear a song that reminds you of her and can’t help but smile? Let her know with this love message from Lowe-Simmons. (Or scroll down for some more love messages inspired by song lyrics to get the wheels turning.) 
  • “Aren’t you tired? You’ve been running through my mind all day.” Cheesy as it sounds, a short, flirty message like this one helps to remind her that she's always top of mind.
  • “I ran your bath water because I know how hard you work. I want to make sure you continue to take good care of yourself.” As Lowe-Simmons puts it, this message "acknowledges the hard work that your partner does for the family." Not only are you showing appreciation for all that she does, but you're taking steps to help reduce her stress levels. “Stress weakens the immune system and increases susceptibility to illness. Partners have to support one another.”
  • “I can’t remember what my life was like without you, and I hope I never have to.” Tell your loved one that she makes your life complete. 
Love notes for her
  • “I could be anywhere in the world but the best place for me to be is right here with you.” Another sentimental expression of love from Lowe-Simmons. This one, in particular, reminds your better half how much you savor the quality time you share.
  • “I’m so blessed to have a teammate like you. I’ll pass you the ball anytime, because I know that you know how to handle it.” Lowe-Simmons says that this message allows your partner to understand that you need them and life is easier because of them. “This also expresses gratitude for your partner’s action,” she says. “Learning to work together and complement one another is an art. When you acknowledge appreciation it helps both you and your partner continue to put forth effort because it is working.”
  • “Darling, you are perfect, and I love you for who you are.” “This message reassures your partner that they are perfect the way they are," Sullivan says.
  • “You are strong, confident, and such a great mother. I love the way that you care for our family.” If you’re married with a child, expressing your gratitude for how your wife is both as a partner and mother is always nice to hear. In this short message from Lowe-Simmons, you more than cover that objective in just two brief sentences. 
  • “Just when I think it’s impossible to love you more than I already do, you go and prove me wrong.” Tell your sweetheart that your love grows wherever she goes.

Deep love messages for her 

  • “At night when I lay next to you and you’re sleeping, I lie my hands on your chest and smile. You bring me such joy!” “Your partner knows that they matter when you tell them and show them,” Lowe-Simmons says. “Do not leave room for assumptions, communication is key to all relationships.”
Love notes for her
  • “I’m so grateful every single day that I get to call you mine.  You have brought meaning to my life in a way that can never be explained. My life was good before you, but my life is beyond my wildest dreams after you.” The beginning of this one may sound corny, but Mouhtis reassures us that “women love corny when it’s coming from you.” In just a few sentences, this love note spells out how much your sweetie has amplified your life in so many ways. “It’ll be sure to make her swoon.”
  • “Thanks for being my best friend. I love your honesty, enthusiasm, courage, perseverance, and smile. I love you more every day.” This missive from Sullivan will really make her keel over with delight. “This love note not only expresses your love for her but also tells her that she is your favorite person and highlights the qualities you appreciate the most about her,” she says.
  • “You make the cloudiest days turn into sunshine, and the darkest nights bright.” This note might be brief, but it captures the depth of your love. Pair it with an "I love you" at the end to really seal the deal. “As small as it seems, she loves to hear the entire phrase ‘I love you’ versus ‘Love you,'" Mouhtis adds. “The small details go a long way!”
  • “Your smile lights up a room, your laugh is contagious, and I just can’t get enough of you.” Women love feeling adored, and this message does just that. “Your love will feel absolutely touched that you see her in this light,” Mouhtis says. “Don’t be afraid of being corny. When it’s in the context of your relationship, it’s absolutely poetic.”
Love notes for her
  • “The beauty of your mind dazzles me, and I am in awe of your intelligence and creativity.” Show your sweetheart that you cherish her wit and wisdom. So many compliments only focus on superficial qualities, so she will especially appreciate this thoughtful message.
  • “A love note of appreciation for you today and every day — thank you for being you. Wholeheartedly, authentically, and unapologetically you. I love you not in spite of your flaws, but because of them and all you are.” She’ll definitely bookmark this love note for a rainy day. “Being appreciated for all of who she is — including her flaws — allows her to feel safe and comfortable to be herself with you,” Mouhtis says. “And everyone loves to know that they are appreciated."
  • “No matter what happens, there is nothing we can’t face as a team. When I feel like I’m falling apart, you hold me together.” She’s the one you want by your side through the toughest losses and the sweetest victories. Tell her how much you appreciate her support.
  • “You inspire me every day to be the best person and partner I can be.” Growth and change can bring you even closer together. Tell your sweetheart that she’s your guiding light through all of life’s journeys.
  • “My love, how do you manage to turn our mundane routine into the most fun-loving adventures? The small yet tender moments we share feel like lifetimes of love in a single second. Thank you for making a regular Wednesday feel like a honeymoon.” To give your significant other some credit, Mouhtis recommends this thoughtful love message for her. “Honor how you notice the small moments that, according to research by John Gottman [a renowned relationship expert, psychologist, and author], are actually the most meaningful parts of relationships — more than the grand gestures.” 
Love notes for her
  • “The more years go by, the more I learn new things to love about you.” Getting older isn’t so scary with your soulmate by your side. No matter how long you’ve been with your love, every day brings new reasons to cherish her.
  • “Every day that passes is just a step closer to forever.” When you’re in it for the long haul, the miles between you don’t mean a thing.
  • “I know that we can get through anything together, as long as we always love each other first.  I know life has dealt us a tough hand right now, but I’m here to keep playing cards with you for the long haul — and make sure we share laughs and steal kisses along the way.  Everything is going to be okay because we have each other forever.” “Going through a hard time with your sweetie and want to remind her that you’re in this together?  This is the note to share,” Mouhtis advises, stressing that all couples fall on hard times, whether it’s within their relationship or outside forces. “This note will reassure her that your feet are firmly planted in your relationship, and together you can get through the hardest of times and come out even stronger on the other side.”
  • “I will spend the rest of my life thinking of ways to make you smile.” For the woman whose smile lights up the room, show her that you’re devoted to her happiness.
  • “After meeting you, all those love songs suddenly made sense.” Romance can seem cheesy — until you meet that person that makes you want to doodle hearts and write bad poetry. The right relationship will inspire you to shout your love from the rooftops.
Love notes for her
  • “I am so lucky to have found my best friend and my soulmate in the same person.” Every day is a new adventure with your sweetheart, whether you’re traveling the world or simply relaxing at home. 
  • “I just want you to know how special you are to me. I love this life we are building together.  Being with you have been the best years of my life, and I can’t wait for what’s to come — but for now, I’m thankful to be here and in love with you.” Here is a way to recognize the life you are creating together. “You are also reminding her that your favorite moment is being in the here-and-now with her, while still acknowledging the past and future,” Mouhtis adds.
  • “Your smile makes my day the best it can be. I’m so glad I get to choose to be with you every day because it’s the easiest decision I’ve ever made.” “It’s a very sweet yet strong love note telling your partner that they are the best thing that happened to you,” Sullivan says. Also, every woman loves knowing their smile moves someone just so.
  • “If my heart was a compass, it would always point towards you.” The right person feels like home, no matter where you are. You will always find your way to the one you love.

Love messages if you’re in a long-distance relationship

  • “Every day that passes is another day that we are closer to seeing each other again. Just know that you are on my mind every second of every day. I’ll be holding you in my arms before you know it.”  She’ll be so moved by this one she won’t know how to respond. “Combining your verbal affection toward your love, reminding her that you’ll be together soon, and spelling out exactly how you want to be with her will help her feel close and connected to you despite the distance,” Mouhtis says. “It’ll also give her something to daydream about throughout her day!”
Love notes for her
  • “You may be far away, but no one else is closer to my heart than you are.” Remind your love that no matter the distance, she will always be number one in your heart.

  • “I’m counting the seconds until I get to see you again. I love you so much.” In a long-distance relationship, it’s important to remember you are going to see each other again. “When you remind her of this, it allows her to feel more connected to the moment you’ll be reunited and ultimately to you," Mouhtis adds.

  • “You are my love story with a fairytale ending.” “It’s a cute and simple message for your partner, telling them they are all you have ever wanted," Sullivan says. We especially like this message for those in long-distance relationships since it subtly reminds your sweetheart that good times are ahead. Also, it’s safe to say most people dream of a fairytale romance.
  • “I’m counting the days until our next adventure.” Plan some fun activities for you and your sweetheart to do when you’re finally reunited.

  • “I know the distance is hard, and I miss you so much it hurts — but we can get through this and anything together.” This message validates her feelings (and yours): Long-distance relationships are tough.“You are seeing and acknowledging her feelings in this way, while also reassuring her that you are both a team and she’s not alone in this,” Mouhtis adds.
  • “I see your beautiful face every time I close my eyes.” She'll be happy to know that her smile is always on your mind. 
  • “Every time I hear the doorbell ring, I can’t help but hope it’s you.” While missing your loved one is bittersweet, it also shows how much you truly care for each other.

Love notes for her
  • “I’m lying here with my pillow in my arms pretending it’s you. And soon it will be.” “Spelling out for your long-distance sweetie exactly what you wish you were doing together will help them imagine what it will be like when you are together again,” Mouhtis says. “The added reminder that you’ll be seeing each other soon is a bonus to help remind your beloved that this distance between you won’t be forever.” 
  • “I wish you were here with me, but you’ll always be there in my dreams.” Remind your partner that she’s your dream girl.
  • “We might be worlds apart, but our love is bigger than the planet.” No matter the distance, true love stretches across the universe.
