The Best "Good Morning" Text Messages To Send Your Boyfriend

Everyone loves to wake up to find a text from their significant other. Starting your day off right can be that much easier if you open your eyes to find a beautiful little text bar on your phone. If you want to give your boyfriend a great head start to his day and make sure he's thinking of you, your relationship, and how great you are together, sending him a quick, simple "good morning" text is a perfect way to make sure he is thinking of you and how fortunate he is to have someone like you in his corner.


Starting The Day Right

The way you start your day has been tied to how the course of your entire day goes. Starting the day on a good foot is one of the simplest ways to make sure you have a good day overall, and offering an encouraging, loving, or even general acknowledgement text to your boyfriend is a wonderful way to show him you care and to get his day start the right way.

If you simply want to say hello to your boyfriend, without any kind of agenda or purpose in mind, a simple "Good morning" will do. No frills, no fuss, and no additional text is necessary.

If, however, you want to bring a bit more into the conversation, and do more than simply let your boyfriend know that you are thinking of him, you can say "Good morning, gorgeous" or "Good morning, my love." Both of these let your guy know that you are thinking of him and that the two of you are great together.

Bringing In Some Spice

If you want to start the morning with a bit more flair, you can offer a simple-but a bit more charged-"Good morning, lover." This is still a fairly tame way to greet your paramour but offers a greater window for your boyfriend to up the ante.

If the above is a bit too tame for you, and you want to send a different, more urgent message, you could offer a photo along with a direct (though still elegant) "I need you" or "I want you." Both of these are great ways to greet your guy, as they let him know where your mind roams in the morning when you've just woken up: they roam right to him, and what the two of you could be doing. In this case, starting the conversation out leaving much to the imagination allows him to wake up, form a coherent sentence, and respond in kind.


Waxing Nostalgic

Waking your guy up with a memory the two of you share is another great way to say "Good morning." You can recall the best vacation the two of you went on-perhaps your first time spending time alone together, away from the prying eyes of others. Starting a text with, "Good morning, baby. Remember that hike we took over New Year's Eve?…" allows your boyfriend to wake up to a pleasant, loving memory of the two of you, which can set a positive, happy tone for the rest of his day.

You can also recall a funny incident the two of you witnessed, such as when you shared an Uber, only to find your driver's dog staring you in the face. You might also want to recall the memory of the two of you trying to have a romantic date, only to find that every last aspect of the date went awry from the very start, ending with you both throwing your hands up, and laughing your way through the evening.

Hearkening back to the fun, special, or bonding times the two of you have shared gives your guy something to go back to if his day begins to falter in its pleasant nature and pulls double duty by allowing you two to feel closer to one another in the morning, and well into the evening.

Laying On The Compliments

What could be better than waking up to a text detailing how magnificent you are? If you want to give your boyfriend an earful in the morning-or if you know he has a trying day ahead of him-offer the most sincere, effusive compliments you can muster. You can compliment his looks, his prowess, his career, or even his hobbies.

Text your guy, "Good morning! I can't stop thinking about how happy I am to have met you. You are the most generous, considerate, diligent man, I know, and I feel so fortunate that I get to be your partner." Of course, this only works if you feel the things you claim to be feeling.

You can also craft a good morning text for him that focuses entirely on one aspect of his person. You can focus on his looks by saying, "Every time I look at you, my insides go liquid. Why are you so unbelievably attractive?" You can focus on his career by acknowledging, "I love how hard you work. Day in and day out, I see that you put your all into your job, and it makes me so proud of everything you've accomplished." You could also compliment his personality in a short and sweet, "Good morning! No one has ever made me laugh as hard as you have, and I will forever love you for it."

Creating Plans

You can also use a "Good morning" text to make plans with your boyfriend. Sending a quick, "So. What are we doing later?" will do the trick. This will, of course, depend on your comfort level with your boyfriend; if you don't feel safe and comfortable enough to be so direct, you can amend the above text to a more tentative, "Hey, you busy tonight?"

If you are more confident assuming that your boyfriend will be spending the evening with you, you can send a text letting him know what you have planned. Sending "Netflix, cereal, and face masks. We're going to party," lets him know that you have something planned, but also injects some humor into the interaction.

You can also send him a link to an event in your city and ask, "You busy?" or "You game?" This, too, gives him something to look forward to in the morning and can help the rest of the day pass by that much quicker.

When To Avoid A "Good Morning" Text

Although texting your boyfriend might seem like a given, there are some times you should refrain from sending off a quick "Good morning" text. You might want to avoid these types of texts when your relationship has just started; a good morning text to your boyfriend can seem harmless enough, but also might feel too intimate for a brand-new relationship. In new relationships, it might feel more natural and comfortable to only contact your guy when you have something concrete to say, rather than speaking for the sake of speaking.

You should also avoid "Good morning" texts when your boyfriend has asked for some space. You can check in once a few days have passed, but if your boyfriend asked for some space to think, process, or consider your relationship, this is not the time to show up on his phone with a cheery morning text.

Sending Your Boyfriend The Best Good Morning Text

A "Good morning" text should be one that takes both you and your partner's personalities into account. Taking the time to send your partner a special, specific message might seem simple enough, but knowing exactly what to send can be difficult. When deciding what to say, take a few minutes to evaluate your relationship, and try to find a topic or the verbiage that is unique to the two of you; no canned boyfriend responses should be tossed carelessly at your partner.


Good morning text messages for him should carry a mark of your personality, too, and all that it entails. In any form of communication, your goal is, at least in part, to demonstrate your wants, needs, and personality, to connect and engage with your partner. Because communication is the most important part of any relationship, being able to communicate carefully and effectively is the best way to ensure that your relationship with your partner is strong and healthy. Knowing how to communicate, yourself, and knowing how your partner prefers to be communicated to will make your texting interactions, morning or otherwise, far more enjoyable.
