1Some hearts understand each other even in silence.

Men don’t tend to talk much about their feelings, and women tend to get a little frustrated by that. She just wants to know what’s on your mind, dude! This quote reminds her that even if you aren’t talking much, you know you can turn to her, and you know that she loves, supports, and understands you.

2You are the poem I never knew how to write and this life is the story I have always wanted to tell.

-Tyler Knott Gregson

Every woman wants to be someone’s muse. That said, it’s okay if you aren’t a writer, a poet, a grand storyteller. She can still be your muse.

3I need her head on my heart, she needs to hear it beat for her.

You need her near, and more than that, you need her to know, be completely, deeply sure of how much you love her.

4Shut up, I think you are gorgeous.

Gentlemen, listen to me: she’s never going to shed all of her insecurity. She will always need reminders that she’s gorgeous exactly as she is. Though you don’t always have to start them with, “Shut up.” There’s a time and a place for that.

5Sorry, I got lost in your eyes, what were you saying?

Guys, I feel you, I understand. Sometimes you zone out and whatever your girlfriend just said to you flies right over your head, in one ear and out the other. I understand, but I’m not exactly forgiving you. Listen to her! But here’s a get-out-of-jail-free card that might work once in a while.

6I’m not perfect. I’ll annoy you, piss you off, say stupid things, then take it all back. But put that all aside, and you’ll never find a person who care or loves you more than me.

It’s important to admit your faults in a relationship. You should know them and own them clearly, sincerely, and often, as it will make you a better partner. Own your faults, and then remind her: your love is stronger than all of that.

7Ever since I met you, no one else has been worth thinking about.

While we’re on the subject of faults, a lot of girls feel insecure about a lot of things, but hey, being a woman is hard: you would, too. Girls sometimes feel threatened by other girls, so don’t be shy about letting her know that she’s your one and only.

8Hold on, my darling. This mess was yours, now your mess is mine.

-Vance Joy, “Mess Is Mine”

Vance Joy has luxuriously curly hair. Vance Joy has a charming accent. Vance Joy writes amazing songs. You’re not Vance Joy, but I’m sure he won’t mind you borrowing his lyrics to tell your girlfriend that whatever she’s going through, whatever hardship, whatever pain she faces, she doesn’t face alone.

9The happiest I’ve ever felt was that moment I discovered you loved me too.

It feels good to crush on someone, to feel infatuation and excitement and butterflies, but love that goes both ways, real, dedicated love beats it by a long shot. The first “I love you,” that you share? Oh man, it’s so, so special.

10You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.

-Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

A time-honored tale of love is a very good place to find the words for how you feel about your girlfriend.

11They asked him, “How’s your life?” He smiled and answered, “She is fine.”

A strong love can be a grounding center for your whole life. If that’s going well, a lot of the other stuff won’t matter, and even when it does, you can come back to the girl who will support you through all of it.

12A deep conversation is all I want from you. I want the words you are afraid to say – the lonely ones you keep hidden in between the folds of your heart.

Every woman wants someone who is a good listener, someone she can open up to fully and who will really hear her. If you’re that guy, let her know. A listening ear is an invaluable gift to a complex woman.

13They told me that to make her fall in love I had to make her laugh. But every time she laughs, I’m the one who falls in love.

She loves your sense of humor, and I bet she also loves when you’re sweet on her, too. This touches on both.

14I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my sweetheart.

-The Lumineers, “Ho-Hey”

Why is this the catchiest, cutest song ever? Why has it been in my head for the last like eight months? This is a sweet line for a card, or a caption for a picture, or hey, dedicate the whole song to her.

15You’re not an option. You’re my priority.

Even though you have a lot of other things in your life (school, your job, your family, your hobbies), even though sometimes you get busy and pour so much of yourself into the other parts of your life, your girlfriend deserves to know that she’s still at the top of your list.

16How can you give me so much strength and yet still be my only weakness?

The love of a good woman can make you feel like you’re on top of the world, and also bring you to your knees, for all the things you would do to love and care for her, for how she makes your heart feel.

17I remember the first day I ever looked into your eyes and felt my entire world flip.

The eyes are the windows to the soul. Looking into hers for the first time and thinking about everything she could be to you was quite a moment, wasn’t it?

18So you brought out the best of me, a part of me I’ve never seen.

-Kodaline, “All I Want”

Isn’t it amazing how being loved by the right person can bring us closer to ourselves, allow us to be freer with our personalities and more genuine? If she’s the right girl, she definitely does that. If she’s special, she brings out the best possible version of you.

19I just want you, that’s all. All your flaws, mistakes, smiles, giggles, jokes, sarcasm. Everything. I just want you.

A woman is a many-colored thing, with more sides than most people will ever see. But you? You might see all of them. And you want to see them, and you want to embrace them.

20His love roared louder than her demons.

Everyone has pain in their life. Everyone has dark places in their mind and bad days and hangups. It’s so hard to see that in our lovers, and even harder to see those things and know you can’t fix that stuff. You can’t, but the desire to is there. Your love looks past those things.

21Your hand fits in mine like it’s made just for me.

To know something like the back of your hand means to know it very, very well. Something else you know very well, something else that feels very sure? Her hand, held in yours.

22A king only bows down to his queen.

Look, if you have a big ego, it does you no good to deny it, least of all to your girlfriend, because she knows you way too well for you to get away with that. If you think of yourself as a king, you damn well better know who your queen is, and you’d better humble yourself to her.

23Forget the butterflies. I feel the whole zoo when I am with you.

Not every expression of love has to be so super serious. You can be cute, and funny, and sweet. And anyway, “butterflies” imply aimless, fleeting excitement, and your girlfriend makes you feel so much more: passionate, committed, fascinated…

24Love her so much that she might doubt your sanity, but never your passion.

-Dean Jackson

Not that you want her to think you’re totally crazy, but you definitely don’t want her to think that you love is fleeting, weak, or temporary. Make sure she knows she inspires you to passion every day.

25In a sea of people, my eyes will always search for you.

Isn’t it amazing that even if you’ve been together for a long time, you still light up when you see her or get a text from her? That’s the power of a great love: the spark is always there.

26You came into my life and became it.

When you’re deeply in love with someone, it can be hard to believe there was ever a life before them, you can’t even remember what your life was like before them.

27I can’t promise you the world, but I can promise you this, I will bring you tacos and touch your butt.

Being promised something feels great, but you should never offer a promise that you have neither the ability nor the intention to keep. I am confident you have both the ability and the intention to keep this one.

28I am so in love with you that there isn’t anything else.

– Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

This is so plainly stated, and such a basic sentiment, and yet so beautiful. Falling in love with someone can make everything else fade away, make you totally unable to think about anything else.

29The best love is the one that makes you a better person, without changing you into someone other than yourself.

A relationship can change you. The difference between good and bad change is that bad change is forced. Good change is organic and authentic to your best self. If your girlfriend makes you a better you, keep her around!

30And suddenly all the love songs were about you.

There are so many good ones. It’s easy to wish you could write songs like that, write one and dedicate it to your girlfriend, too. Love songs are so appealing because we all know what love feels like, and when someone makes beautiful music about it, it hits us hard. If you’re lucky, you hear a love song and think of the love at your side.

31I have a problem…I can’t get enough of you.

But really, think about this one. The one you love is endlessly fascinating. You want to know everything, do everything together, experience all that life has to offer together. You really can’t get enough.

32Your happiness is important to me. That’s why I want to be the main reason for it.

Loving someone doesn’t just mean you super duper enjoy being around them. It also means that you care about her life. You want her to be happy and fulfilled and so much more. And lucky you: you get to be a big, big part of that.

33No, I’m not going to lose feelings. No, I’m not going to find someone better…

…No, I’m not going to cheat on you. And no, I’m not going to leave you. I’ve already made up my mind, I want you and only you. No one else…because to me, you’re my kind of perfect.

If your girlfriend doubts your love, or her worthiness, that’s not necessarily your fault. She has a past, and some of it has probably stuck with her. Not everyone is as good to her as you are, so it’s a good idea to acknowledge that one in a while. This quote tells her that you see her clearly and love her dearly, and know that she’s your perfect fit.

34She never seemed shattered; to me she was a breathtaking mosaic of the battles she’s won.

And it might do her good to hear that you know her past and troubles make her the strong, journeyed person she is today.

35You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.

-Dr. Suess

C’mon, who didn’t love Dr. Suess as a kid? This is a nice sentiment because we’ve all had those special nights we’ve stayed up until sunrise getting to know someone amazing, days we’ve fought back the yawns because we couldn’t get enough of our crush or love and so never slept.

36I love you. You annoy me more than I ever thought possible. But I want to spend every irritation minute with you.


Not that your girlfriend is annoying, but when someone is super duper close to you, they know exactly what annoys you. What they say and do carries so much weight because you care soooo much. Spend enough time with someone, and some things are gonna drive you crazy. And when that stuff doesn’t matter, when you want them anyway? You’ve got a good one.

37I can’t promise to fix all your problems but I can promise you won’t have to face them all alone.

As much as you wish you could, you shouldn’t ever promise to fix someone else’s problems, because you can’t. That’s a recipe for disappointment. There’s plenty of things we have to do ourselves, and we don’t even need someone to try, we just need their support. Be that for your girlfriend, and make sure she knows it.

38She is delightfully chaotic; a beautiful mess. Loving her is a splendid adventure.

-Steve Maraboli

Getting to know someone’s idiosyncrasies, getting to know them deeply and be in their company is an adventure in being human. Your favorite human adventure? Your girlfriend of course.

39I didn’t want to fall in love or need someone. I really didn’t want anything. But then, you appeared and I started wanting everything.

You don’t know what you got til it’s gone, but you also don’t know what you’re missing until it’s there. When you’re single, you might feel lonely or wish you had someone, but you never know who is going to sweep you off your feet and become so important, their very special way, until you finally come face to face.

40Sometimes I look at you and I wonder how I got to be so damn lucky.

Deliver this one with a wink.

41If you are alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder. If you are not happy, I’ll be your smile. If you need me, I’ll always be there.

And when she needs you the most, she may not know how to tell you, or ask for what she needs. So make sure she already knows, and be there for her.

42He loved her, of course, but better than that, he chose her, day after day. Choice: that was the thing.

-Sherman Alexie

Love on its own is not enough, even though most of our books and movies and love stories tell us that love is the end-all be-all. Loving someone for a long time, though, is not accomplished through love alone. You have to be flexible and steadfast and committed and patient. You have to choose.

43she asked
‘you are in love
what does love look like’…

…to which i replied
‘like everything i’ve ever lost
come back to me’
-Nayyirah Waheed

Nayyirah Waheed’s poetry is so gorgeous, all of it. Some of it is political, and some of it is bleak, and we should feel lucky that such a talented poet gave us a few words on love.

44Book quotes: She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.

Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor and Park

First of all, of course your girlfriend looks nice, but she looks so much more than that. Nice, pretty, these are boring words that don’t do justice to what an awesome knockout you’ve got standing in front of you. She looks like art, she looks compelling, she looks stunning, she looks breathtaking. There is never any reason to just say she looks nice.

45She is a friend of my mind. She gather me, man. The pieces I am, she gather them and give them back to me in all the right order.

Toni Morrison, Beloved

One of the greatest American writers (Ever. Ever.) penned this line of dialogue to describe how the love of a good woman heals a man. Your girlfriend listens to and supports you and calms you and cares for you like no one else. These words will tell her so beautifully.

46Literary love quotes: My body was like a harp and her words and gestures were like fingers running upon the wires.

James Joyce, Dubliners

Speaking of expressing yourself beautifully, good old JJ had an epic way with words. If your girlfriend happens to be the bookish type, or a lit major, or anything like that, you can’t do much better than to choose a literary love quote to express yourself to her.

47Why is it that words like these seem to me so dull and cold? Is it because there is no word tender enough to be your name?

James Joyce, Dubliners

Guys with bookish girlfriends, never fear, I have you covered. I know your girl has discriminating taste in words, and you may not be a poet or a writer, but poets and writers have said some beautiful things that you can certainly repeat to her.

48Love begins at the point when a woman enters her first word into our poetic memory.

Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

And if she’s bookish and philosophical, a few lines from Milan Kundera are perfect. It’s such a compelling concept, that falling in love starts with the moment when a woman inspires you, hooks you by the mind and imagination.

49Love is the longing for the half of ourselves we have lost.

Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

It’s the longing, and it’s the perception of finding, too. When you’re so close to someone, their presence can feel like an essential part of you, part of what makes you, you.
