Tell him that, and he will be the one melting in your arms.

A nice little reminder that your love for him is as strong as it ever was — if not more.

How to Pick the Best Nice Things to Say to Your Boyfriend
There are 4 tried-and-tested tips to help you pick the best nice things to say to your boyfriend.
1. Get to Know Him Well
You want to always adapt your message to your audience. If your boyfriend is a fairly romantic guy, you can use pretty much all of the suggestions above. However, if he is more of a pragmatic type, it’s generally best to keep your declarations of love short, simple, and to the point.
2. Timing Is Key
Even the most heartfelt words could sound a bit off if you say them at the wrong time and at the wrong place. So, with that in mind, pick your timing wisely. As a rule of thumb, a romantic candlelit dinner is generally a better setting than the two of you being stuck in your car in Monday morning rush hour.
3. Be Honest
If you are going to tell someone you love them or something along those lines, you better mean it. Most guys can smell an insincere compliment from a mile away.
4. Don’t Overdo It
We all like being told how great and loved we are. However, if we hear that all the time, we might start to appreciate it less — so try not to go overboard.
