To help you tell your boyfriend you love him, we’ve compiled a few sweet things you could say or do.


Tell your boyfriend you love him because of what he did for you

If you tell your boyfriend you love him, he will appreciate that but if you let him know why you do, that’ll draw you closer to each other.

01Babe, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the way you keep surprising me; there’s never a dull moment when you are around.
I also love that you haven’t given me any bad surprises, just awesome ones that have made us create many good memories that’ll stay in my heart forever.
I’ll never get bored of you and that’s why I love you.

02[Name], have I ever told you how much I love how you’re always respectful towards me?
You’ve never said anything bad to me or treated me harshly, even during times when we don’t see eye to eye.
I’m grateful to have someone like you in my life who always treats me with respect. You make it easy for me to love you.


03You know, every time I talk to you, [Name], I actually feel like I’m talking to someone and not the walls or plants because you value my opinions.
You always value what I have to say regardless of whether it’s about something big that affects us or little things like why I like vanilla ice cream.
The fact that I know what I say matters to you is why I love you.


04What I like about you the most is that you are honest: you never pretend to be someone you’re not and you don’t hide your flaws from me.
I love that you aren’t just honest about the little things. You always tell me if there’s something wrong that I need to know so we can work through it together.
Your honesty is why I love you so much.

05Ever since we started dating, what I’ve always loved about you is that you actually listen to me. You aren’t too quick to give me advice or help.
Instead, when I come to you, you let me talk and vent about anything that is troubling me, and you listen to me to understand how I feel.
Knowing that you understand how I feel is better than any solution in the world.


06Thanks for pulling through for me today. I know I can always count on you. You’ve never disappointed me and are true to your word.
I love that I can always rely on you, and not just when something big happens, as you’re always there for me and ready to help me out however you can.
Having you in my life is a blessing.


07During the past few months that we’ve been dating, I’ve come to notice something that’s really nice about you- you’re ready to make compromises for me whenever you can.
I love that you don’t always want things to be done your way and are more than happy to do things that you normally wouldn’t do.
I’d like to let you know that your compromises haven’t gone unnoticed and that I love you for making them for me.

08Hey, I just want to let you know how much I love how good you are at making me feel special.
You don’t mind going out of your way to do something, however big or small it is, from making me breakfast to all the times you tell me you love me.
Your making me feel special is why my love for you keeps growing every day.


09I’d like to tell you how grateful I am for how kind you are to me, even during times when that might be difficult.
I’ve noticed that you aren’t just kind to me. I’ve seen you around your family and your friends, and you are thoughtful towards them and help them however you can also.
Nothing can ever make me love you more by knowing that.



Tell your boyfriend you love him because of his personality

When you tell your boyfriend that you love him, that will make him feel more secure around you and that will make him more open to you.
Allso, if you tell your boyfriend you love him, that will generally lead to good vibes in your relationship, so here are a few ideas you can try:

10One of your qualities that I really like is that you prefer to focus on the positives no matter how bad a situation might be.
You’re always content with the way things are and if there’s a negative you can’t change, you don’t let it get to you.
Your positivity is why I love you. It always brightens my days.

11Do I ever tell you how much I like how easygoing you are? You make it so easy to be around you so much that I don’t want to leave you.
Your laid back approach to things is what makes me love you. You have this “no pressure” vibe going on that is super cool. I love it and I love you.


12One of the many things I like about you is that through whatever is happening, you’re always rock-solid and that makes me feel safe around you.
That feeling of stability that’s unique to you has made you become my safe haven where I feel protected emotionally and otherwise.
Loving you has come easy to me and I love you with all my heart.


13I like how smart you are; I’ve never seen a challenge that bogs you down or defeats you and that is a trait I find very special.
What makes it even more special is that you don’t have to try hard or tear anyone down to appear smart; you just are in your own charming way.
Your being smart and humble at the same time is what makes me love you a lot.



14Every time we talk, I always feel so connected to you, and even just being around you can make me feel like that.
Communicating with you is so natural; I don’t think any of our conversations have ever felt forced.
This level of connection that I enjoy having with you is what makes me love you more by the day.

15I’ve never seen someone who’s as driven and hardworking as you. I like seeing the passion in your eyes whenever you’re doing something you like.
What I like even more about seeing you achieve your goals is that they never drive you away from me.
The fact that you make time for us is very special to me and I love you for it.


How to show your boyfriend your love

Sometimes you may not find it easy to express how you feel to your boyfriend using words or the relationship may be new, so it might not be appropriate.
Situations like these require action rather than words so here are a few ways to tell your boyfriend you love him by showing him you do.

16Buy him a small gift
One good way to show your boyfriend that you love him is to buy him a small, thoughtful gift like a pair of socks or a good bottle of wine he likes.
The gift doesn’t have to be expensive, as long as it’s something that expresses that you care about him.
A small gift that he can keep with him will remind him daily that you love him.

Planning a short getaway for you and your boyfriend is a great way to show you love him.
The best news is you don’t have to take him to a fancy resort. You guys can simply go hiking or walk to the park to enjoy a picnic.
If you show your boyfriend that you want to spend time with him, he’ll know you love him.

The fact that you made it yourself will also show him that you care enough about him to dedicate some time out of your schedule for him.


19Take part in his hobbies
Another great way to show your boyfriend that you love him is to take part in his hobbies every now and then.
Even though you might not like watching sports or playing video games, your boyfriend will appreciate the gesture because he will see that you love being around him.
