They allow couples to express their thoughts and feelings to each other, including their joys, desires, and fears. Words can bring people closer together, whether they’re said in person, through cards and letters, or over a text. Checking one’s phone before bed is common, and many people fall asleep texting the special someone in their life. There are many different ways to show someone that you love and care for them and sending a goodnight text could be one of them. In this article, we’ll be exploring 70 different examples of cute goodnight texts that could help your relationship thrive. 

Curious how a goodnight text can show your partner that you care?

Showing love in a relationship

Everyone shows love to their partner through different means. You can give them gifts, hold their hand, or you can spend time with that person. You can also communicate to someone that you love them using words. Words of affirmation are labeled as one of the five love languages by Dr. Gary Chapman, a well-known marriage counselor. He states that “Actions don’t always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, ‘I love you,’ are important – hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten. Kind, encouraging, and positive words are truly life-giving.” 

Goodnight texts can be an easy, simple, and genuine way to show that you care, especially when sending them to someone that you’re dating. Whether your partner’s highest love language is words of affirmation or not, goodnight messages are a way to leave a positive impression on your loved one before you both go to sleep. Here are some of our favorite texts that you can type away before you go to sleep. Some of these are simple, sweet, and straight to the point, while others are a little longer for those who like to type more. If you’d like to chat with your loved one a little longer and learn more about them before bed, start with these texts: 

  1. If you were on a deserted island, what three items would you have with you?

  2. What is something interesting about you that you have not told me yet?

The efficacy of online counseling 

Communication is a common issue among couples, but online therapy can help improve how well partners connect with one another. In this study, researchers found evidence that couples therapy delivered over the internet was just as effective as face-to-face interventions. Researchers found that participants experienced “improvements in relationship satisfaction, mental health, and all other outcome scores over time.”


Different couples choose to communicate in unique ways. For some partners, texts or phone calls are not an important aspect of their relationship. Others rely on texting to feel close and secure with one another. Regardless of your preferences, goodnight texts can be an effective way to show your significant other that you care for them and are thinking about them. Couples experiencing issues with communication in their relationship could benefit from online couples counseling. Here, they can learn new methods of engaging with their partner and learn how to handle conflict in a healthy, productive way. Everyone deserves to be with someone who loves, cherishes, and values them, no matter how partners choose to express those feelings.
