Hot and Romantic Love Messages for Her

An "I love you" message can instantly bring a smile to your girlfriend's face. It's a way to make her feel special, loved, and cared for. Here is a collection of original ways to let her know you love her. You can write these messages on a card or in a text message, or you can incorporate them into a poem.

It's amazing how much difference a simple heartfelt message can make in your relationship. Read through these tips for ideas on how to pen romantic messages to your sweetheart.

Tips for How to Make Your Message Your Own

Your relationship with your girlfriend is unique, and therefore all of these messages should only be treated as starting points. Here are some ideas for how to tailor these messages to fit her:

  • Be specific: Instead of saying you love her because she's the best, say that you love her because she's the only one who can make chemistry funny or tell what kind of mood you're in before you realize it yourself.
  • Throw in an inside joke: Your relationship is one-of-a-kind because you both have your own quirks. Remind her of the history you share by referencing something that has special meaning for you both. For example, instead of life being like a pizza without cheese, you may mention a different food that you both love.
  • Recognize her strengths without hyperbole: People treasure compliments that they think are true about themselves. So think about things she's proud of, whether it's being down-to-earth, stylish, or thoughtful.

No matter what, the key to a love message is to convey how profound your love is—that it is permanent, it makes you incredibly happy, and you can’t imagine living without it.

Read on for ideas for how to phrase your message.

newbie on January 29, 2019:

man these are great but I already say some of it already. and yeah, if ur gf ain't saying she loves you back, I hate to say it, but she probably isn't the one. however, they could just be one not to rush, it really depends on the personality and how long you've been together.

monte on January 24, 2019:

awwww those are so cute

That kid in love on January 20, 2019:

If your girl don't come to you when you're sad, don't tell you I love you when you feel like you need it the most, don't help you when you are down, then my man, she ain't the one. Don't ever get held down into a relationship if you don't feel the same love you give.

Dut Makoot on January 16, 2019:

l can spend days without food and sleep. but i cannot spend a minute without you love. your love is and always will be my lifeline i love you. darling

Beatiful loveing and carring

Loved, Lossed and Loved again, etc. on November 11, 2018:

To everyone complaining there "lovers" don't reciprocate, Maybe it just takes themlonger to love or they express it in other ways. open your eyes and either see it or forget about it... perhaps there not the one who is meant for you. I can honestly say that true love can exist. do not settle into a life you will later regret, you cant get years back. get out while you can if you must.

“You are not only the first woman that I have really loved, but you have always occupied a place on my mind and on my heart. Even when you are not physically by my side, I feel that you are next to me and that has no other name than love. You will have my heart in your hands for a very long, long time. I love you so much. “

David on January 16, 2014:

well i had some things happen that cause me to lose focus on the girl i love so. i broke up with her and now i am currently trying my hardest to mend the wounds i put on her broken heart. i love her more than anything and i would lay my life down to prove it her. every song and every cloud and star makes me think of her. i continuously send her long messages from my heart and she tells me she knows i love her and she tells me she love me back but something deep down concerns my heart. I wanna be her love again. id walk the earth sail the seas and climb the highest mountain just to see her smile. id go to hell and back to show her my love. Im lost for words now and still feel i should keep proving and showing her that i love her. Where or what do i do next? i bought a ring the other day and lord knows i have prayed and prayed and begged god to let her say yes. i just want her to know that i will never stop loving her. even if it takes me waiting at heavens gates to show her. i will wait as long as it takes.
