231 Things To Say To Express Your Love To Your Boyfriend

Last updated on July 12, 2024 by Michelle Devani

Do you love your boyfriend so much that words can't express it?

Or maybe you're just the kind of woman who doesn't know the appropriate words to say to a romantic partner? 

Perhaps you're not comfortable expressing yourself like this?

If so, you have nothing to worry about. There are lots of people who feel this way. This guide is here to give you a helping hand to give you the words to say to express your love to a boyfriend. 

But, let's begin with an extremely relevant and important story.

In my early years of dating, I was feeling strong feelings for guys that were unrequited. 

I was doing everything I could to be a great girlfriend, but I could never keep the attention of these guys for more than a handful of dates.

It turned out I had no idea how to connect with the part of a man’s mind, which builds lasting romantic connections. 

That all changed when I started researching a part of the male mind called the ‘Hero’s Instinct’. 

This is a primal area of the male brain, which makes all the difference when it comes to attraction. Once you understand how it works, you can learn how to make a man OBSESS over you.

If you want to learn more about how I turned this part of my love life around - and how you can do the same - click to read my personal story.

This knowledge can turn your romantic fortunes around, yet it would appear that there’s a shortage of women who understand this aspect of male psychology. 

So, I’d urge you to take that leap and learn how the ‘Hero’s Instinct’ works.

With that said, let’s take a deeper look at some specific words you can say to your special man.


What To Say To Express Your Love To Your Boyfriend

When you’re searching for things to say to express your love to your boyfriend, it can be hard to find the perfect thing. You love him so much, and you want the ideal words that express that. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve done your makeup, bought him a surprise gift, and are ready to deliver those words, if they aren’t the perfect words the gesture will fall flat. The same applies to a surprise text about how much he means to you. 

These sweet words are guaranteed to make his heart skip a beat. They are the perfect words to let him know just how much he means to you. Tell him how much you appreciate him, and how happy he makes you, with these words to remind him of how special he is to you. 

1. I can’t imagine what life would be like without you by my side.

2. You’re the first thing that I think of every morning when I wake up.
