Words of affection mean a lot to women. So, if you want to melt your special girl’s heart but don’t know where to start, try using these sweet phrases!
Admittedly, it can be difficult to find cute things to say to your girlfriend when you’re head over heels for her. When we are flustered and nervous, we just can’t seem to find the right way to put our feelings into words. Maybe you have trouble tuning into your romantic side, or maybe you tend to trip over your words.
Either way, there is no doubt that the pressure to impress is real. If you come on too strong, you will be labeled cheesy. If you don’t ever say anything nice, then you probably won’t score any points. And the very last thing you want to do is accidentally come off as obsessive or creepy. So how do you find the right sweet and cute things to say to make your girlfriend swoon?
Luckily for you, we have prepared a list of sweet and cute things to say to your girlfriend as well as some pointers to build your game. [Read: How to make your girlfriend happy and feel like the luckiest girl ever]
Why say cute things to your girlfriend?
Everyone appreciates hearing about their good qualities. So if there is a special girl in your life, you should be praising her constantly. Not only does this heighten her confidence, but it creates intimacy and strengthens your bond.
So, don’t shy away from saying these sweet and cute things to your girlfriend. Let her know you feel comfortable with her, that you notice the little things about her, and that you are a safe space for her to be herself.
However, you have to mean it. You aren’t trying to manipulate her, get her into bed, get her to forgive you, nor are you trying to pressure her. If that’s how you see it, she will see right through you. When you say these cute things to your girlfriend, it should be because they are how you truly feel.
You may just need a little help with the articulation. You love your girlfriend and want to say romantic things to her but just don’t know how to string these lovely-sounding words together at the perfect moment. And that is what this list is for.

The do’s and don’ts of sweet talk
Now that you have an idea of sweet and cute things to say to your girlfriend, you need to work on the delivery. Coming up with cute things to say to your girlfriend is one thing, but delivering them in the right way is quite another! Here are a few things you should do versus the things you shouldn’t do.
1. Do choose words you’re comfortable with
You’ve read a list of romantic and cute things to say to your girlfriend, but not all of them will feel right to you.
Instead of reciting the entire list we provided, select the phrases that best sum up your girlfriend and your relationship. Don’t simply churn out lines because you think it’s the right thing to say.
Also, if something seems cheesy to you, it probably will to her too, so don’t use that one! Remember, every person is unique, and what may seem romantic to one could seem awkward and corny to someone else. So choose the lines that connect with you. [Read: How to please your girlfriend and make her feel loved and lucky]
2. Don’t overdo it – less is more
Don’t say cute things to your girlfriend all the time because they won’t mean anything if you overdo it. Instead, choose your moment and make sure it’s a time when she will appreciate them.
For example, if she’s having a hard time at work, a well-timed text with some loving words will make her feel better and let her know that you’re supporting her. That’s what these cute things to say to your girlfriend should do, after all.
3. Do be sincere
It’s no good saying cute things to your girlfriend if you can’t do it without laughing. At least make sure you have a straight face but always be sincere!
These words are going to be important to your girlfriend, so take the time to say them with meaning.
4. When choosing cute things to say to your girlfriend, don’t say things you don’t mean
You might think these are just lines but your girlfriend will no doubt take you at face value and assume that you mean what you’re saying. Why shouldn’t she? That’s exactly what you’re supposed to do. So only say what you mean.
5. Do choose your moment
There are times in life when even the cutest line isn’t going to cut it. If your girlfriend is in the middle of a panic, stress, upset, or something else that’s not going to make your words go down as well as they should, hold off.
Also, don’t say these things in public!
The beautiful thing about coming up with cute things to say to your girlfriend is that it’s for the two of you, to bring you closer.
