Top 15 Cute Texts To Send To Your Boyfriend Throughout The Day

Updated April 8, 2024by Regain Editorial Team

Texting may be a contemporary norm—it's become more and more common to text to share information. You may text your pharmacy for a refill, connect with a shopper bringing you an order, or confirm a restaurant reservation. Many people make plans via text. In fact, in many situations, some people prefer texting to talking over the phone.

This can be true in relationships too. Some people may find that they can express their innermost thoughts and feelings via text message when they may have difficulty verbalizing them. While some people have a good back-and-forth with their partner through text messaging, others may find that their texts to their partner aren't always reciprocated with the same detail of emotion.

Need support with your relationships? What about something else?

If you're in a relationship and are tired of sending the same texts over and over, only to get the same dry response to each of them, you might consider changing your text strategy. Or you may find cute ways to say I love you in a text and surprise your partner with a midday message.

There are a few important things to remember about texting in general. The biggest disclaimer for text messages is that you can't convey your tone the way you can in person or even over the phone. Still, sending and receiving cute texts can be uplifting and fun. It's also important to realize that texting isn't the only method of communication you should be using if you want to have a healthy relationship. Strive to create a balance between talking and texting. 

Research suggests that face-to-face communication can be the best type of communication for a person's psychological well-being. However, research also shows that texting can improve interpersonal relationships. So, while it may not be a substitute for talking face to face, go ahead and send some digital communication. It can be fun, make someone's day, and enhance your relationship. You might try some of the following positive text ideas.

Texts that tell how much you love them

1. I love you more than you could imagine.

This text can be sent as a reminder to your partner that you love them dearly. Consider sending this type of text when they've been away for a while or if you haven't seen them for a few days. It can also serve as a great make-up text.

2. You're my world.

Remind your partner how much you love them by expressing how much they mean to you. This text serves as a reminder that you're committed to them. It's also  something meaningful to send if you've been busy lately and haven't been able to spend much time together.

3. I can't imagine doing life without you.

Speaking of love, your partner might love to open this text. It can be a reminder that life is so much better with them in it. This is another way to say "I love you" in text form.

4. You're my forever and always.

If your partner is wondering what you're thinking about the future, this text can remind them that you're looking forward to a lifetime with them. This text can be great to send any day, but perhaps especially on anniversaries or other relationship milestones.

5. I can't begin to describe how much I love you.

Simply put, your love for them leaves you speechless. When the love between you and your partner is incredibly strong, it can be hard to put it into words. Send this text if you want to remind them how indescribable your love for them is.

Texts to say I'm thinking of you

6. I can't wait to see you later.

This text can work in two ways. If you haven't heard from your partner and want to be sure they remember your plans, this can be a gentle reminder. It can also be a genuine way to let them know that you're thinking of them and love spending time with them.

7. I am thinking of you.

Plain and simple—you're thinking of them and want them to know. You might send this short but sweet text to let your partner know that your thoughts include them. Knowing someone cares is a great way to lift spirits and brighten someone's day.

8. I wish you were by my side at this very moment.

This text can show that you miss them and you don't mind telling them. This text can also suggest that you'd love to spend time with them and can't wait to see them.

9. I miss you, babe.

A classic and lovely way to say that you're thinking of your partner can be to let them know that you miss them. A text like this may make your partner smile. It may even cause them to blush a little on the inside.

10. I can't wait until you're home.

This can be a sweet way to say that you're missing your partner. If your partner is traveling or out of town, this can be a fantastic text to send to let them know that things aren't the same without them nearby.

Texts to express how they make you feel

11. You keep me smiling.

Expressing that your partner makes you feel good and makes you happy can offer a positive relationship boost. This text can be a good way to describe how your partner makes you feel and to express your gratitude for the happiness they bring you.

12. I'm so lucky to have you as my partner.

Do you feel fortunate to be with your partner? It's a feeling that many people wish to experience. This text can let your partner know how pleased you are to be a part of their life.

13. I love how you always make me laugh.

Knowing that they bring joy to others can make people feel good and appreciated. 

14. I feel safe and so comfortable when I'm with you.

In a world that can be stressful, it may make your partner feel good to know that they are the ones making you feel safe and at ease.

15. You made me feel so special last night.

If the night before was great and left you feeling special, letting your partner know can be a loving gesture. You can express how much you enjoyed your time together.

If you want to discover more engaging messages to send to someone you care about, you might think of things they like or find humorous. These can all be great foundations for text threads. Pictures, songs, GIFS, and quotes can also be creative ways to connect via text.

What if your partner doesn't text back?

Now that you've read some ideas for messages to send your partner, it may be the right time to start sending them. It can be fun to send sweet text messages to your partner occasionally. However, what if your partner is one of the many people who doesn't text back? Can you motivate them to communicate or to respond to the texts you send them?

Some people find the lack of reply or a single-word reply frustrating, unsatisfying, or problematic. However, remember that everyone has different communication styles—whether digitally or in-person. Everyone is unique, and there are certainly some people who don't like the idea of texting as a means of expressing their thoughts or feelings. There are many reasons why this might be the case—such as lack of time, not knowing what to say, considering texting to be a disconnected type of communication, or difficulty putting things in writing.

Whatever the reason for your partner not replying may be, there are ways to respectfully encourage them to do so or to find out why they don't reply:

  • You can try talking honestly to your partner about communicating via text. If you feel that texting is a vital communication outlet that will help to strengthen the bond between the two of you, you can try explaining that. Perhaps they don't view texting the same way, but they might appreciate hearing your perspective.

  • You can respectfully ask your partner why they don't text back. This can help you find out their reason for not texting you after you've sent a message. You may get an answer that helps you understand. It could be something as simple as the fact that they're busy.

  • You might try letting your partner know how it makes you feel when they don't reply to your texts. If you're in a relationship with someone who cares about your feelings, they will likely want to know how you feel. They may not realize that their reply would mean a lot to you.

  • You can try asking them if they'd like to initiate a text each day. It could even be a text that takes a couple of seconds. It doesn't have to be long or be fancy, just a text that expresses something about their day. This may help them form a habit of staying connected by texting.

  • Remember that if texting isn't something they're comfortable with or have time for due to commitments, it doesn't mean that they don't care about you. Respecting boundaries and preferences is part of a healthy relationship, just as expressing yourself can be.

Helpful tips to remember about relationships and texting

Remember that it can be difficult to detect a tone in a text, making it risky to text during an argument or disagreement. Looking closely at what you text can be important so that what you text isn't misunderstood or misconstrued during important moments in a relationship.

Need support with your relationships? What about something else?

To some, texting isn't an important type of communication, while others may view it as quite important. It can be engaging and a way to strengthen a quality bond between two people, but it may not be as much of a priority to one person in the relationship as it is to the other.

There may be cases when texting is the only way to reach out to your partner. (For example, you may work where you can't talk on the phone, but you can send a quick text.)

Texting style may impact a relationship in various ways. People who consistently scroll on their phones may be lonely, bored, or feel isolated from others. Their partner may wish they were more interactive in person rather than through their phone.

Constantly texting to check up on your partner to see what they're up to or where they are may be a sign of insecurity in the relationship. It might be helpful to take some time to address the reasons you feel insecure about your relationship or partner. Do you suspect that they're not being honest with you? Do you feel hesitant about trusting them? Do you feel confident in the relationship? Some people feel insecure in relationships, but if those feelings are more than passing or are growing, perhaps it's time to reassess the relationship.

Find ways to sustain your relationship

While texting can be a great way to keep in touch and send loving notes to your partner, it's possible to go a little overboard with texting. Suppose your partner tells you that your texts are too much. It may signify that they need a bit of space from the digital talk. If you find yourself sending multiple texts that are interfering with your life or your partner's or you find yourself thinking or worrying about the texts to the point that they disrupt your concentration, it may be time to make adjustments.

Texting is a quick and convenient form of communication. However, strong relationships are not likely to be defined by the frequency, length, or details of your messages to a partner. You can try to have fun with them and use them for necessary communication, but try not to let texting become too consuming. You may find that actually talking to your friends, your romantic interests, and your family is more fulfilling than texting.

Some people find communicating challenging or wish they could be more productive communicators.

Texting can be fun, and it can allow you to let your partner know how you feel. Just make sure it's just one part of healthy communication between you and the one you love.
