55 Romantic Text Messages for Him & Ways to Make a Guy Feel Loved

Romance isn’t just for women – guys like it too. So, if you don’t know what to do, here are some romantic text messages for him and other ideas.

Romantic Text Messages for Him

When it comes to romance for guys, it’s not the same thing you want. They’re not too crazy about receiving flowers or you taking him out to a really nice dinner. But they still need an element of romance directed toward them in order to feel loved and appreciated. Text messages just so happen to work wonders for this. These romantic text messages for him are just what you need to make him feel wanted.

Just because they don’t always feel romance the same way ladies do doesn’t mean you can’t be romantic. They put in the effort to figure out how to turn on the romance for you, so you should do the same for them.

Men are just as emotional as women

Did you know men actually have the same emotional capacity as women? Some studies suggest they are more emotional and feel it at a deeper level than we do. But why can’t you tell that they’re so emotional, then?

Well, it’s because women are much more expressive in that sense.

The reason for this isn’t known specifically, but it’s thought to be because of the way we evolved. Men needed to be leaders. If they were vulnerable, their position as leaders was challenged.

Therefore, men learned to keep their emotions inside, despite how strong they were. [Read: Do men have feelings? Why they behave like they just don’t care]

Romantic text messages for him to smile at all day

Men being highly emotional means they appreciate a romantic gesture just as much—if not more—than us ladies. The problem is, they don’t like to ask for them nor do they feel the need to tell you what they like. That can be troubling if you want to be romantic with him.

Thankfully, we know a thing or two about what men find romantic and what they don’t really like.

The best way to test the waters with your man is to try out some of these romantic text messages for him that’ll leave him smiling all day.

The most important tips for romance with men

We’re sure you’ve figured this out by now, but romance for men isn’t the same as it is for women. While women like to be told just how meaningful they are in a man’s life and how beautiful they are, men like to have their achievements acknowledged.

If you want to make sure you’re doing romance for your man right, use the romantic text messages for him we’ve shared above, but also remember to follow these tips. [Read: How to make your man incredibly happy – 20 effortless ways]

1. Mention his manliness

Men love to be told they’re manly, and honestly, they don’t hear it very often. If you phrase it in just the right way, you can get the romance brewing between the two of you by talking about it.

2. Talk about how safe and comfortable you feel

Guys always think it’s their job to keep their women safe. It’s basically engraved in their DNA, so if you tell them how safe and comfortable you feel around them, they feel all mushy and gushy inside—even if they don’t always show it.

3. Tell him how well he takes care of you

Another thing guys love hearing is how well they provide for you. Do this by telling him just how well he takes care of you.

4. Bring up his personality

A guy’s personality is really important to him. If you mention how much you like it and how much it influences your feelings for him, he’ll love it. [Read: How to tell your boyfriend you love him – 17 sweet and easy ways]

5. Mention his hard work and ambition

Guys are very proud creatures. They want to be told they’re working hard and that their ambition is attractive. So tell him this. He’ll smile all day long.

Other ways to be romantic with him beyond text messages

Sure, romantic text messages are great to send your guy. But you can’t stop there. In other words, you can’t be all talk and no action when it comes to romance.

So, why not step it up and actually do something romantic for your man other than sending him romantic text messages? Here are some great ideas that will be sure to capture his heart.

1. Switch up your wardrobe

Men are very visual creatures. And while you might love to go around the house in your sweatpants and a t-shirt, he might want to see a little variety on you.

You could start by trying to wear clothes that are more in line with his taste, not just your own. Don’t worry, you don’t have to change your entire wardrobe. Just do it once in a while.

2. Touch his body more

We’re not talking about sex here or even a sensual massage, although you can include that if you want, of course. But instead, try simply touching and showing physical affection to him in your daily life.

Hold his hand when you walk somewhere or play footsie on the couch while you watch Netflix. These are reassuring actions and can remind him that you love and appreciate him and his body. [Read: 16 loving and romantic touches in a relationship that’ll make your man feel closer]

3. Let him have a guys’ night out

This might not sound very romantic to you, but if you let him have a night out with the guys once in a while, he will appreciate you for it.

You know how much you like girls’ night out, so why shouldn’t he have a little fun with his friends too? He will feel much more romantic towards you when he comes home.

4. Leave him flirty notes

We live in a technological world, as we all know. And while romantic text messages can make him feel good, sometimes doing it the old-fashioned way will make him even more pleasantly surprised.

So, write some little loving, flirty notes for him to find. Leave them in his car, his bathroom, briefcase, lunch bag, or anywhere else where you know he will find them. [Read: 30 really romantic ideas for couples to feel loved and connected 24/7]

5. Compliment him

Men are human too. In other words, they also like getting reassurance of your love and affection every once in a while.

So, next time you notice how sexy he looks while fixing something around the house, tell him. You might think they’re just words and they won’t matter to him, but they definitely will.

6. Give him a framed photo

Just like leaving him hand-written notes for him to find the old-fashioned way, you can also print out an actual photo of the two of you and frame it.

We live in mostly a digital age, and so actually printing a picture out is more special and meaningful. It can be anything from your most recent date night to a photo from the first time you met. It will show him how much you care.

7. Give him a break

We all need a little time off from our usual daily activities. So, if he usually cooks dinner on certain nights, do it for him or order takeout.

If he’s stressing about something at work, bring him a sandwich and a beer while he’s working on a presentation.

He will love the little gestures like this and feel like he’s the king of the house. It doesn’t take much effort on your part, and he will find it really romantic. [Read: 67 sweet yet small romantic gestures that show love in the biggest way]

8. Do something different in bed

All couples tend to get into a little bit of a rut when it comes to sex after a while. So, do something a little different to surprise him.

Surprise him with sex in the kitchen or even in a public place. You even could watch porn together to get some ideas. The point is, whatever your usual routine is, break it and do something different for a change.

9. Couple’s spa day

Usually, we think that only women like massages and going to the spa. But guys do too! Even if he has never tried it before, he will still love being pampered.

Couples massages are great for that. Even if you think your guy is too manly to enjoy it, then you can think of something else that will enjoy doing together. 

10. Have a deep, meaningful conversation

Daily life can be mundane and boring sometimes. We can just get caught up in routines and day-to-day conversations like, “how was work?” or “what are we doing this weekend?”

Instead of talking about surface-level things, focus on opening up more and having real, meaningful conversations with him. That will add value and more love to your lives.
