Romantic Words. How to say something romantic.

Writing a romantic message in a card is easier than trying to write a lengthy love letter. So find the right words to tell someone how you feel about them, two lines in a card or if you mean in it three words - the special ones that can mean so much.

How to say something romantic?

How to say find the right words to let some one know you love them.

How to write something romantic.

Ideas and inspiration on how to write or say something romantic.

On Valentine's day, a birthday or a special anniversary you want to say something special to say how much you care. But every time you think of something to say .... it sounds wrong.

The right words will be the words that mean something special to the person you are saying/sending them to, the words that will touch their heart and make them think how lucky they are to have someone like you to care.

You do not need many words to tell someone that you care they just need to be the right words for that person.

Lost for the right words?

The right words at the right time... but that is not always easy.

You want to say something romantic... but you are not sure...


Do not make it too complicated...

Try not to make your words more complicated than they need be... two lines or two or three words can be enough said at the right time, spoken in the right way or written down to be treasured.

In the past Valentine cards were sent anonymously ...

I suppose it was thought of as more romantic.

But why go to all that effort and risk someone else taking the credit?

At least leave a hint of who wrote and sent it.

it is difficult to define love or beauty.

present your words in an attractive way..the message can be simple but mean what you say..

here are some ideas for you to use or adapt to suit your romantic message...

  • Find a piece of poetry that will mean something about your relationship and to you both.
  • Write down a few lines from songs that you both love - you will know the sort of songs I mean.
  • You could write them down and say why they mean so much to you.
  • Or patch together lines of poetry, songs, quotes, write them on the card at angles to each other so that the lines are diagonally and just keep adding to them until you have an arrangement of words that you like.

still lost for words...

  • Just write a list of words - the things you love about this person, or type and print it if you hate your handwriting. 
  • Cut up the list and stick it into the card or on a piece of paper ... before you start to add the words in the centre of the card write these are the things that I love about you...

If you are artistic decorate the paper, or print your favourite photographs on it or pick a very special card or a piece of handmade paper... you can buy some handmade papers with petals pressed into the paper.

Messages of Love on a postcard..

the example here may not seem relevant ...

but if you follow how it developed you could write a poetic romantic statement about a person...

Why are they special to you?

what do you love about them?

What happy memories do you share?

Why do you like being with them ?

What is it about them that makes your life better?

Special days/nights you have shared.

Why you are pleased you met them.


use the ideas here to write romantic messages ...

You could write these 'love token messages' on a postcard and adorn a wall with your statements of love for Valentine's Day or an anniversary ... the only cost is your time ... save the cash for a romantic dinner for two... or for flowers or a gift.

If you want to theme your messages use read or pink coloured card or their favourite colours...

Or print photos onto the cards, have the cards shaped as hearts or simple flower shapes, or leave them in a trail of stepping stones dotted with messages or use footprint shaped messages ...the trail could lead to a candlelit dinner for two to a romantic gift ...

A List of Romantic Words ...

remember romance is - different things to different people so try to think of words that are appropriate.













A Love Quote...

'Women wish to be loved not because they are pretty, or good, or well bred, or graceful, or intelligent, but because they are themselves.'

 Quote Henri Frederic Amiel.

'Grow old along with me the best is yet to be.' Quote by ~ Robert Browning.

'The heart that loves is always young.' a Greek proverb.

Write a message today ... that will become a word memory...

  • remember ... before the days of text and mobiles people sometimes had to write letters or even love letters to each other... some of us who were miles apart from a person we loved. and now have them tied up with ribbon ( the letters not the person we love).

When from time to time we read the letters; we remember and if we are really lucky we have never forgotten or been forgotten. Maybe that is romantic... so say it, write it , post it, send it.

three small words ...

If all else fails in your search for the right words -

remember that said with sincerity three small words can be the most romantic of any...

and you already know them.

Different ways of saying the same thing ...

Help in writing Something Romantic ...

A list of sentence starters - put them with the words of your choice or pick from the list below.

Make sure the words you add to the sentence make sense and that they relate to the person you are saying them too - and please only say them if you mean them -

I love you because

You are special to me because

No one could be as special to me as you are because

I like it when you say

Being with you makes me happy because

You have the most beautiful smile.

Words list.

darling, my love, dearest, sweetheart,beloved,beautiful,special.

Romance. Running out of time as well as ideas ... and still do not know what to say?

Romantic words to use as a starting point for your own message -

when picking which to use think about which you and the recipient will be most happy with... feel free to pick and mix from this assortment of hopefully romantic words...

Without you... in my life... without you there no dreams...

You are the best thing that has ever happened to me ... and always will be

I love you more each day, no I love you more every second of each day.

I love you. I need you as much as the air that I breathe.

me + you = happy me . me - you = sadness

Money could not buy the happiness you bring to my life.

Three little words

honest and true

today and forever

I will love you.

Remember that the best words of all are the ones that you say and mean.

An example of how to develop a thought into a poetic statement.

The Rose that is special to me..

Look closely it is just a rose.

No, this rose is special;

It is my rose.

It is the rose

he gave me

for my birthday.

My Special Rose.

My Special Rose.

You gave me a rose

that would not fade away.

You gave me a rose,

that I could see everday

because you knew me

well enough to know

a rose (like love) is special

when you watch it grow.

Travis is someone is not sincere and genuine I do not know any words that would make them change. Saying the right thing is one way of showing someone you care. There are people who might try to use romantic words for the wrong reasons, but I would hope if they were not sincere they would be easy to spot.

stepha please do n't give up hope, somewhere you will find someone who appreciates you and cares for you. True love is more than the romantic words and compliments it is finding the right person who will be by your side through the good and the bad times. Take care of yourself and I hope it is not too long before you find your own special person.

bie bright I think you can help someone to be confident and more trusting by reassuring them that you care. However, I do think that for some people it difficult to trust someone. It may be that they lack confidence or because the way they have been treated in the past. You can only try to be straight forward and honest,then it is up to her. Talk to each other and ask her why she feels this way. I hope all goes well for you.

hello and thank you for your message here. You know if I had to say the secret of romance in a few words I would probably say it is about making the other person feel special. If you think she is amazing then that is wonderful and just the sort of thing people like to hear. Good luck, hope you get the chance to see her, and I hope it will work out well for you both.

this is a really valuable Hub. I like your comment that youth today may never write or mail a personal letter. I remember the letters my mother and her mother wrote to each other . . . and they saw each other two to three times per year.

brorobbrit - sorry I missed your comment when you left it here, thank you.

epigramman thank you, but no I am have no wings. :)

I think I am writing this type of article to try to inspire romance in the hectic modern world we live in.

I like the first line of an old song -

"What the world needs now is Love, sweet love. It's the only thing that there is far to little of."

I am pleased you enjoyed reading this - it was inspired by Valentine's Day but romance should not be confined to just one day of the year so I am writing other articles too. Thank you once again for reading this and for your comment too.

are you the female version of Cupid because love is flourishing because of people like you - and your writing is hubtastic and hubdelicious - with pride and dignity - and I look at my full moon tonight across the lake where I live and think that could be you .... spreading this love and wisdom to all of your readers here at hubpages.


brorobbrit 6 years ago

To be in love... Such a magical spell that flows through our bodies and enter our very soul...To feel alive and glow from within because now life makes sense... Romance is in love... Giving your heart to someone else to hold softly that is romance!

Thank you Anamika. To be honest this is my most visited Hub - and I do not have a clue why it is. I wrote it for Valentine's day with the thought that it might inspire romance for someone - and since it has always stayed in the top three of my more popular hubs. If I knew why - I could apply the magic to the other 98 I have written. Although the others are not doing badly this one has its own 'legs' to run ahead of them. Well that is what I have been thinking for some time, that is the mystrey of Hubpages I suppose.

I have never been in loss of words. It is said that when one is in love one even becomes a poet or poetess because words come from the heart.

I think I might join in again when the topic is one I can write on. We are OK here... snow has gone, not warm enough to garden yet though so looking forward to the springtime.

Thanks ralwus as you guessed I love the romantic side of the Victorian era.. but sometimes the reality was harsh. I think I may have got to the age when looking back softens the reality of the modern world. Home thoughts - the song brings back an era when I was always writing letters and missing someone very much.

itakins pleased you liked this nice to hear from you.

Micky - yes I love that song and the richness of her voice.

Jayjay thanks but I hope he does n't blame me for that. Thank you all. Regards 2uesday.

Not everyone can express themselves so this will help those who can't. So you did good. The Victorians knew how to write didn't they?

thank you ralwus for reading this and leaving a comment. I agree I have seen your poetry and you have a gift that I admire for putting words together, and I enjoy reading your poetry hubs.

When I wrote this I was thinking of those who want to say something romantic but are lost for the right words. I am English and so maybe that influenced my thinking/take on this.

Also to my eyes - we might have a future generation who have never sent or received a personal letter. The younger ones tend to communicate by text message. I have no way of knowing if they are good at expressing how they feel in words. Possibly the only letters they write are in school English lessons. I know there are young writers who are talented and can express themselves real well, some of them write here on HubPages and also some young song writers capture feelings in words well.

I really was thinking of someone who wanted to say something romantic but could not find the right words who at 11.30 on the thirteenth of February (Valentines day is the 14th here in UK not sure about other countries) and wanting ideas tapped into a search engine "How to say something romantic" in an attempt to get ideas.

Thanks for leaving a comment ralwus.

ralwus 7 years ago

Hmmm, I don't recall ever not having the words to convey my message to my love. I think I can handle it pretty well, but then again, I have had lots of practice. All great ideas though. My love has her own poems I have written expressly for her.

I enjoyed reading this 2uesday. I think homemade cards and notes mean so much more than store bought cards. everyone can be creative if they allow themselves that 'space', don't you think? very nice. love the rose poem.
