Love MessagesFor Him & Her
They say that when you love someone you should always let your feelings show. Whether you've been together six months or 60 years, those three little words bring you closer each time they're uttered.
If you're writing out your anniversary card, crafting a message to accompany a bouquet of flowers or simply want to send them a sweet text to let them know you're thinking of them, we can help.
We've collated a pretty extensive list featuring some of the most romantic, heartwarming, 'shout it from the rooftops' love messages that will make your other half feel truly special. Here we go!
TIPS FOR WRITING THE PERFECT LOVE MESSAGE
Before we get started with the declarations and inspiration, here are some things to keep in mind while creating that heartfelt note.
Keep it personal – Maybe you have a pet name for one another that you can start your message with? If not, use an alternative such as sweetheart or darling if that suits you.
Mark the occasion – Why are you writing out the message? Are you celebrating an anniversary? Is it their birthday? Do you just want to be a little romantic? Talk about this!
Tell them why you love them – Feature some personal tidbits from your relationship. Maybe she's your biggest cheerleader, perhaps he dances with you to whatever's on the radio or they never forget to kiss you goodnight. Whatever the reason(s) why you're head over heels for them, tell them!
Finish with a final declaration of love - Always and forever, love you the most, lots of love – these are all ways to sign off that card and convey that genuine message of love and adoration.
LOVE MESSAGES - FOR WHEN YOU WANT TO TELL THEM HOW YOU FEEL
Ooh, that first time you say 'I love you' can be a little scary. Will they say it back? Is it the right time? Will they notice you sweating?
If you'd prefer to write it down first, here are some ways of getting your message across. But be sure to say it in person next time you see them!
I want to let you know that I think the world of you. You've changed my life for the better and I couldn't imagine it without you now. I love you.
I don't want to be cheesy or scare you away but I love you and I hope you feel the same way.
I'm so thankful for the time we've spent together so far and I hope it will continue for a long time. I love you.
Every day I think how lucky I am to have you. I love you and I want to be yours always.
I love you, there I said it! No take backs!
