2020 has tested relationships, and now that Valentine’s Day is here it’s time to tell your partner just how much you love and appreciate them. Whether you’re together or socially distanced this February, you have the opportunity to connect with your partner emotionally.
For those who haven’t come up with the right words yet, here are 30 ways to tell your one and only how you feel.
"Being with you is the most wonderful thing that’s ever happened to me."
Every couple has their ups and downs, but true love puts things into perspective.
"My life would be empty without you."
It’s healthy to have a life outside your relationship, but when you really love someone it’s awful to think about what your life would be like without them. Some people aren’t aware of how important they are to their partner and Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to remind them.
"Whether life is up or down, I’ll always be thankful to have you at my side."
Marriage vows often include a reference to sticking by your significant other through thick and thin. Although times can get tough – the past year being a perfect example – the right person will always make them a little better.
"Loving you is the most comfortable and most exciting thing I’ve ever experienced."
Relationships are about feeling safe, but also about embarking on adventures with your favorite person.
"Coming home to you is the best part of my day."
Of course, now that people are working from home, it might be “coming out of my home office”. Being with your other half shouldn’t feel like a job.
"Whatever happens, it’s ok as long as you’re by my side."
We can’t control our lives, but when things go awry it’s a huge comfort to have a hand to hold and love to sustain you.
"Home is where the heart is – and that’s with you."
Sometimes people don’t feel like they have a home. With your soulmate, you need never worry about that again.
"I want us to grow old together."
It’s easy to fall for someone when they’re young and beautiful, but true love will stand the test of time.
"I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you."
Time flies when you’re having fun, so be careful you don’t blink and miss all the special moments with your loved one!
"I love you more than..."
Whether you want to make this humorous – more than pizza – or heartfelt, it’s a nice and simple way to express your appreciation for your lover.
"You make me want to be a better person – to be the lover you deserve."
The best people bring out the best in us. If your partner makes you want to do better in life, they’re someone to hang onto. Don’t forget to tell them!
"Waking up to you each morning is the best part of my day."
The dread of a Monday morning is universally relatable but when you’re waking up next to your soulmate, the week doesn’t seem so scary.
"I love your beauty – inside and out."
People like to know they’re beautiful, but also that you see beyond that and love you the way you are.
"I’m looking forward to hugging you every day we’re together."
If you’re with someone who loves cuddles, this is for you!
"I love and believe in you."
Romance isn’t the only part of a relationship. For many people it’s important for their partner to have their backs in every aspect of life.
"You mean everything to me."
Good, plain and simple.
"You’ll never stop being beautiful to me."
A good old-fashioned compliment can never go wrong.
"I want to make you as happy as you make me."
Being in a relationship is reciprocal, and now is the time to give back to your soulmate.
"I’ll always be here to support you."
This can be good to hear whether you’re struggling or thriving, especially with the world being so chaotic right now.
"You brighten even my most difficult days."
Let your loved one know how much they mean to you.
"Our love is better than I’d ever dreamed it could be."
When your relationship surpasses your hopes and dreams, you know you’re with the right person.
"I love spending time with you."
They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder, but loving your time together is a sign of the real thing.
"I’ll never get tired of laughing with you."
This wish shows how much you appreciate your partner's lighthearted side, and it goes perfectly with a quirky Valentines Day gift too!
"You complete me."
Whether you think of your partner as your other half, your better half, or your soulmate, this kind of intimacy is something to hang onto.
"Every day I fall in love with you again."
It’s the best feeling, waking up every day and realizing that it wasn’t just a wonderful dream.
"I treasure all our memories together and can’t wait to see what comes next."
Sometimes looking back at your time together makes you appreciate it even more.
"Loving you makes me excited to face every day, because I know you’re by my side."
Everyone needs a partner in crime.
"Life with you gets better every day."
Ok, so this one might not always be true, but life with your soulmate is guaranteed to be better than life without.
"You are such a special person."
People love to feel special, and what better time to say it than Valentine’s Day?
"I love you."
When it comes down to it, everyone just wants to feel loved and have the chance to love someone back.
Everyone has a different love language and Valentine’s Day is a chance to try your hand at all of them. If you’re not usually one to express your love in words, we hope that this list will be an inspiration.
Love is the one thing that can hold you together in these tough times; find time to celebrate it!
