15 Romantic Ways to Say “I Love You”

by | Love

Jun 10, 2023

I love you is a pretty cute thing to say to your partner. Luckily, there is more than one way to say it so that it does not become stale or just another thing your partner has to hear every morning when he or she wakes up. Here are fifteen romantic ways to say I love you to your partner: 

1. You truly complete me; you know that? 

Sometimes, I love you can be a question. I like it this way because it gives your partner something to think about. 

It is true that love makes us feel complete, especially when it exists within the confines of a healthy relationship. 

If you truly mean it, then telling your partner that they complete you will make them feel good for hours after.

2. I am proud of you and us and how far we have come

We asked sixteen men and twenty women what they thought sounded most similar to I love you. 

Surprisingly, more than 60 percent of them agreed that “I am proud of you.” was most similar. 

Telling your partner you are proud of them is the best way to show your love in a very romantic way.

3. The world feels so perfect with you here

The world takes form when one is in love. This is true. If you have ever been in love, you would agree that love is one of the warmest feelings out there. It is like a blanket pulled over your body on a cold night, like water touching your tongue following hours of thirst.

It is such a romantic way to show love to your partner by telling them how they fit into your world; how they have been able to impact it.

4. You know, I could be with you for hours and not feel time go by 

A conversation with a lover is one you never want to see end. In fact, one of the ways you get to know if you truly love someone is by checking out how much time you are able to spend with them without feeling bored or irritated. 

If you let your partner see that every second spent with them is like a beautiful play winding out before your eyes, they sure are going to get the point. They will be able to see that you truly love them. 

5. If only I could say the beautiful things I feel about you. Maybe I have to become a poet

True love can be very overwhelming. And when one is in love, one may find it very hard to say the very things they feel. 

Your partner, I am sure, has been in such a state before. So, when you come to them with words like this, they will be able to relate to it on a deeply personal level.

6. I would never have asked for better

A romantic way to tell your partner you love them; can be said over the phone, in person, or just over a text. 

No better way to tell your partner you love them than telling them that they are the best. 

The best simply means they cannot be replaced. There are no options that even come close to being toe to toe with them and what they mean to you. 

7. I wish we could exchange hearts; so that you feel the weight of the love I carry in mine 

Poetry is the language of love. No wonder it is considered the most romantic form of literary art. 

No matter how much you try, many times, regular language fails at showing the trueness of love. But poetry comes to the rescue by building imagery in your partner’s mind. 

If your partner can think about it, your partner will be able to connect to it.

8. I see your face when I close my eyes most of the time, and it is one of the most beautiful things there is to see.

Honest. Straight to the point. They will get it. You love them. 

It takes a lot of love to stay on a person’s mind. If you show them that they stay on yours, they will be able to accept how much you love them. 

9. I wish time had stopped when I was with you. That is how much I love you.

Sometimes, it is wise to quantify your love. 

And guess what you should quantify it to? Something impossible!

Quantifying your love for something impossible is a romantic thing way to say I love you; it is impossible to quantify how I feel about it.

10. I feel those butterflies in my stomach when I am with you, you know? 

Maybe a little cliche. But cliche does not hurt, does it? As long as it drives the point home, and tells her that she is the best there is to you, then you should say it to her often. 

11. And when it is all said and done, I would want you. I wanted you then; I want you now, and I will want you tomorrow

The best way to say I love you is to admit that you deeply desire your partner. Your partner ought to be the object of your desire most of the time. And you should let them see that this desire is not going to falter. It stays with you. 

12. You are closer to my heart than you will ever know: 

Again, you quantify the closeness, the love, to something very impossible. Love brings one very close to another person. It is such a romantic way to show love when you admit to this. 

13. I don’t think I fell in love with you. I think we held each other’s hands and walked into love

Love isn’t something you fall into. It is something you walk into. 

14. I know for a fact that it gets better. I am here for you.

Yes, stability means love!
