“Making your girl smile is worth a lot in a relationship. Women love to be loved, and one way to help them capture that feeling is by making them smile. It doesn’t have to come from a joke or a silly act; it can come from sincere words professing your love to a beautifully crafted card. Do things that come from the heart, show effort, and let her know you love her. That will smile at her every time.” - Dr. Wendy Boring-Bray, DBH, LPCC
Every beautiful girl loves to hear beautiful sentiments. Sweet sayings can come from many different sources. Poems, lyrics, quotes from books or movies, and greeting cards are just a few places to get some inspiration for what you can say to a girl to make her smile.
Once you find the right words, you can write them in a note, send them to her in a sweet text (maybe even with an emoji, depending on your texting style), sing her a sweet verse, or accompany your sentiments with a gift of flowers or chocolate for an extra delightful surprise. Choose your romantic quote or phrase wisely, and be sure that it’s genuine.
The right words, said in just the right way, spoken or provided in a sweet text at the right time, and conveyed with the right heart will put your special girl on top of the world. When you love someone, you want them to feel good, and words are one way to make that happen.
The longest longitudinal study on adult health shows that people who are happy and have love in their lives are healthier and live longer than those who are lonely. The Harvard Study of Adult Development began tracking the health of 268 Harvard sophomores during the Great Depression in 1938. Over the years, researchers analyzed their successes and failures in their marriages and careers.
The study showed overwhelmingly that people who were the most satisfied with their relationships during the season of middle age were the healthiest at the age of 80. What seems like a simple cute and sweet text or sentiment at the moment might mean a lot more long-term. Of course, saying nice things to the one you love is important in any interpersonal relationship. You want people to know that they aren’t taken for granted, especially your significant other.
In a compelling article from Amherst College, researchers mention communication as the number one way to have a successful relationship. While communication can include plenty of words of affirmation, it also means that you ask questions, share information, be there for your partner, and listen genuinely.
Professor Robert Waldinger said the opposite is also true. In his TED talk, he said, “Loneliness kills. It’s as powerful as smoking or alcoholism.”
What Waldinger says in his TED talk can imply that saying beautiful things to a girl will make her healthier. While this is not always the case or necessarily true, it can certainly make her happier and feel less lonely. Something like an apology, of course, takes more than romance and speech alone, but if you’re there to let your partner know that you love them on a special day (or just because), you’re in the right place.
Now that you know that whispering sweet nothings to your favorite girl will make both of you happier, you might be wondering what you can say to her. That’s why we compile this list. Some of the love quotes here are cute and sweet, whereas others are deep and romantic. There’s Something on this list for everyone. Here are 80 of the most beautiful things to say to a girl to make her smile, just in case you are at a loss for words.
Ways to say “I love you.”
“I love you” is Something that you probably say to your significant other quite a bit – that’s important! Sometimes, though, you’ll want to spruce it up, whether you’re talking in person or sending a sweet text. Below are some ideas for ways to say “I love you” or to communicate how much your wife, fiancé, or girlfriend means to you.

It’s crucial to communicate clearly in every relationship. Good communication begins with words, but there are many ways to show a woman that you care about her.
For many women, the way to their hearts is to make time for them. When you give up the afternoon’s game to spend time doing Something she wants, there’s no doubt in her mind that she’s your top priority. You might even find some new things that you both enjoy together. Continue creating time for your significant other even when your dating relationship moves to Something more serious. Plan a special night to surprise her, and show her love regularly by asking how her day was.
Acknowledge her kindness. Don’t take it for granted. When your partner goes out of her way to do Something nice for you, she’ll love you even more if you make a point to mention it to her. Say “thank you” to let her know that you took notice, and send a sweet text when you’re apart to let her know you’re thinking of her. You’ll probably get a bonus because she’ll feel appreciated enough to repeat the kind gesture again and again.
Accept your significant other as she is. The way she looks, the way she talks, the way she laughs, the way she interacts with others. She doesn’t want to change any more than you do. Help her be her best self by being yours. Practice kindness, compassion, and understanding. Also, never shy away from saying, “I’m so glad that I’m in love with my best friend. Thank you for being you.”
