How to Pick the Best Things To Say To Your Boyfriend

Ready to go knock his socks off with all these sweet phrases? Maybe we should prep a little first. The fact is, if you come out the gate swinging with all these memorized lines, he may feel a little overwhelmed. Or maybe you're not even sure if you bring yourself to say some of these things.

No need to panic, we're going to walk through the best way to know what to say and when to say it. In no time at all, you'll be enhancing your relationship daily with these loving expressions.

Here is how to pick the best things to say to your boyfriend:

1. Check the pulse

You read through the list, so you have to know that not all of these are for everyone. I think we can all agree that someone on a second date shouldn't be telling her guy, "I'm scared to lose you." But, there are a lot of phrases on this here that would be perfect!

Use your discernment to take an accurate measurement of what stage your relationship is at, and choose accordingly. If y'all are almost ready to walk down the aisle, you basically have free reign. Everyone else, try to gauge what will speak love into your boyfriend's life, and what will make him stress.

2. Take the leap

Maybe you're not used to saying such disarming things, or maybe you're just not sure how your boyfriend will react. Let me just say, even if both of those things are true, it's always good to start somewhere.

Saying sweet and loving things is an important part of a long, healthy relationship. If it's awkward at first, that's ok! Part of growing a relationship is learning together. Start slow, but start! A lot of people aren't used to being so transparent in a relationship, but with time it will be part of your normal rhythm.

3. Have an agenda

Without being intentional, you'll start saying sweet things to your guy and then the habit will fade out. You want saying nice things to be a key part of your relationship - it gives strength and stability and encourages you to see the best in each other. 

If you need to, put it on your calendar to give him compliments to encourage him. It may seem unromantic, but getting into the habit is the best way to make it feel natural. He'll notice, and be so encouraged - I can almost guarantee you'll see a literal spring in his step. After that, you'll be finding excuses to tell him nice things - just to see his face!

We all need people to lift us up, and there is no better gift you can give your boyfriend than letting him know that you are always in his corner. Did you know it takes 10 positive comments to mentally outweigh 1 negative comment? Whether it's about his appearance, his work ethic, the way he treats you, or others, or his awesome character - always be prepared with some nice things to say to make sure he knows how amazing he is!
