Sometimes, when we talk to our boyfriends, we forget what to say. I have 15 sweet things to say to your boyfriend to break that silence. Yes, I know, these are simple things to say, but you know what – sometimes the simplest things are the words that mean the most.
1. I Think You’re Special
Your boyfriend is special, isn’t he? Then tell him just how special you think he is. Remind him of why you think he is so special.
2. You’re the Best
He’s the best, right? Yeah, of course he is, or you wouldn’t be dating him. Remind him that you think he is the best thing in your life.
3. I Couldn’t Live without You
Do you remember how Bella felt when Edward left her the first time? Do you feel as if you would go numb all over if he left you? Tell him how you couldn’t live without him – this will tell him just how into him you really are.
4. I Love Your Style
His style is adorable, don’t you think? The way he dresses just blows you away. It makes your heart thump louder and louder every time you see him. His style is one of the first things you noticed about him when you first met, so tell him this.
5. You’re a Cutie
You know he’s cute! So, stop blushing, don’t be so shy and look him in the eyes to tell him that he is cute. What is it that you think is so darn cute about him? Go into descriptions on this. Do you like his hair? His eyes? His lips? The way he acts? Describe it.
6. You’re so Sweet
Do you think your boyfriend is sweet? Go deeper into this. Tell the boyfriend why you think he is sweet. What has he done for you that is so sweet. Do you love how he hugs you every time he sees you? Do you love his sweet smile? The look in his eyes? Tell him. Descriptions go a long way.
7. I Love the Way You Smell
Don’t you love the smell that the boyfriends brings into the room? Then let him know this. Guys love it when their girlfriend tells them they smell good. It’s always good that a girl recognizes a new cologne the guy is wearing.
8. I Love when You Kiss Me
Who doesn't love being kissed? When you really care about someone, kissing them is amazing. Let him know that you love his lips and the way they feel. If there's some specific kiss you love - the peck, the open mouth, etc., let him know! Everyone wants to know about how they kiss.
9. I Love Your...
Make it personal! Pick your favorite thing about him and let him know what it is. Do you love his eyes, hands, strong back, the way he makes you laugh? Whatever it is that you love about him, tell him. He'll love the compliment and if it's something he'll does he'll make sure to do it again.
10. I Want to Meet Your Family
OK, to be fair this could scare your guy off, but if you've been together long enough then he won't run away. This is a great way to say, I want to know more about you and I want to get closer to you. Meeting the family can be a big deal, so make sure you and your relationship are ready to take that step.
11. Your Friends Are Great
Does your guy have a tight group of friends? Tell him how you feel about them, if you like them that is. If there's only one specific person you like, let him know that you think that person is so funny, nice, or whatever adjective you choose. You want your guy to like your friends, well he wants the same!
12. Want to Watch the Game?
Sounds silly right? Think about it though, you're showing interest in something that he likes. If you're not into sports, this is a great way to show that you're taking interest in him and what he likes.
13. You Make Me Happy
Do you ever worry about whether or not your boyfriend is happy in your relationship? You should never have to worry about it, but it's always nice to have that reassurance. Although you may not think so, guys worry about things like this too. Let him know he's doing a good job every once in a while!
14. Thank You
Sounds kind of weird, huh? Well, sometimes I say this randomly to my boyfriend and it always makes him feel nice. He does a lot for him and I want him to know I appreciate it. Make sure you take time to let him know that you appreciate everything and anything he does for you.
15. I Love You
Of course, you should only speak these words if they are true. If you really feel that you love the guy, then you should say it. Otherwise, skip this part.
Those are 15 sweet things to say to your boyfriend. See, I didn’t pick things that are hard for you to remember, because then, when you’re talking, you’ll be trying to remember the things from my blog. Plus, if they are too long or hard to remember, you will look as if you are reciting what I told you. All of these things should feel natural. You should not say anything you do not mean. Only say it if you fully feel that way. So, do you have any sweet things you would like to share with us that does not sound corny?
