Romantic Words - to say

To be really special something saying romantic has make the person feel good when they hear or read it. Try to find words that are right for you say, ones that they will know you mean, what you are saying.

Remember even if you are tempted to - please do not tell somebody you love them if you do not, as it will eventually cause problems for you both.

I am so lucky to have met you.

I never knew how sweet life could be until I saw you smile.

If all the women in the world where stood in one long line. I would search until I found you and ask you to be mine.

I love you every moment of the day and with every beat of my heart.

Will you still love me tomorrow? Please say you will.

This must be love, I think of you and the world is a better place.

For me the definition of happiness is to walk into a room and find you there.

The simplest is still the best = I love you and I always will. Or even simpler - I love you.

Saying something romantic in writing.

No surprise that the ones we have on record are mostly from famous people. Yet often stored away in a box in many houses is a bundle of letters tied up with a bow, a reminder of the days when lovers exchanged letters in the post when they were apart. In the days before mobile phones or even household telepphones, the only way to communicate with someone you loved when they were away was to write a letter and post it to them. In the days of instant communication it is difficult to imagine the pleasure of receiving a letter like this way, or the anticipation of listening for a letter to arrive delivered to your doormat by the postman. This letter writing may have made saying something romantic easier, after the practice of writing something romantic.

Firstly what is romance ?

Most people probably have their own ideas about romance and romantic words and gestures.

Can the word romance mean different things to different people?

Most likely yes, it is probably best for a couple to evolve together what they consider to be romantic gestures and words. Favourite romantic words for some might sound like cliches to others.

Understand the difference between romantic words and chat up lines - they are different and they have a different purpose.

What is romantic? The obvious are the gestures we associate with what once was defined as courtship.

This quote summarises romantic love well:

"Romantic love reaches out in little ways, showing attention and admiration. Romantic love remembers what pleases a woman, what excites her, and what surprises her. Its actions whisper: you are the most special person in my life. " quote by Charles Stanley from ( A Man's Touch)

Courtship could be considered an out of date idea in the modern world, but it played an important role in the past and we could learn something about how to be romantic from the concept of courtship.

Courtship was a way that a gentleman would set about winning a ladies heart. This is often featured in fairy tales but it was and can be present in real life to.

To court a lady a gentleman, paid her special attention, this could be in the from of gifts such as flowers,jewellery, personal gifts such as tokens of love. giving a love spoon he had carved especially for her.

For anyone struggling with the concept -

The essence of romance is about how you feel about a person and letting them know why they are special to you. It is creating a special atmosphere/mood with words,events or gestures.

You can be romantic without being in love and you can be in love without being romantic; but the two things usually go together.

Most of the words to do with romance are to do with being in love or feeling something special for someone.

Love is an act of endless forgiveness
A tender look which becomes a habit.
by Peter Ustinov

When someone says - "Say something romantic."

"Ask yourself what are they asking for?"

Do they want reassurance -that you love them, that you find them attractive, are they seeking a sign of commitment, or are they wanting to make a date a special occasion that will lift it into being a memorable occasion.

If you just want a list of romantic words and sayings then skip down the page you will find them further down.

Ask yourself, what is that special person asking you for?

You probably know if you think about it.

The answer will depend on the couple, but romance is about making the other person feel special and telling them why you think they are special to you.

What can you do if you find the idea of saying romantic words difficult ? Try to say somethiing you are comfortable with, eventually with practice saying something roamantic about the way you feel, how and why you like this person will become second nature.

It is probably helpful to read romantic quotes, letters or statements made by people who have done a good job of declaring their feelings in a romantic way.

No surprise that the ones we have on record are mostly from famous people.

Romance has not been deliberately swept aside in relationships but in the modern world it is often difficult to remember to find the time to write a letter or even a message in a card to tell someone how much they mean to you.

What can you say that is romantic?

Here is a list of ideas to help inspire you to say something romantic.

Always try be honest and do not use romantic words just for the sake of saying them.

Ideas to say something romantic -

What it is that makes you like this person so much?

Or why it is that you love them.

It really is not that difficult think about what makes them special to you.

If you could not see them for a month what would you miss about them - romantic things- you would miss about them.

Remember - It may not be obvious at first but when you love someone - things other people might see as negative can be seen as part of their personality and as such an endearing feature.

Roses, a flower people can think of as a sign of romance.

Romantic Words - Romantic Quotes.


'Soul meets soul on lover's lips. '  by Percy Bysshe Shelly

Romantic quotes...

' I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach. ' quote - Elizabeth Barrett Browning.


'He felt now that he was not simply close to her, but that he did not know where he ended and she began.' quote - Leo Tolstoy


'A kiss, and all was said.' quote - Victor Hugo


If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden. -Claudia Gandhi


Love is never having to say you are sorry. quote from Love Story.


'The simple lack of her is more to me than others' presence.' - Edward Thomas


'My heart to you is given:
Oh, do give yours to me;
We'll lock them up together,
And throw away the key.' - by Frederick Saunders


'Many are the starrs I see, but in my eye no starr like thee.' an old English saying used on poesy rings


I love you - those three words have my life in them.
by Alexandrea to Nicholas III


What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
by Ralph Waldo Emerson


When you love someone, all your saved-up wishes start coming out.
- quote Elizabeth Bowen


The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is to love and be loved in return. - From "Unforgettable with Love" by Natalie Cole


Saying I love you for the first time...

Saying "I love you."  or even writing it is always going to be more difficult the first time when you  may be unsure of the other person's response.  

If you are unsure about saying "I love you" then it might be best to wait just a little longer until you can say those three words with confidence, and try to  read the signs that the other person is giving you to judge what their response will be.  

However if you are 'head- over heels' and crazy about someone then waiting to say it might not happen - you might just say it one day when you least expect to. 

Something Romantic to say at a Wedding.

Saying something romantic in a wedding speech will be more difficult than speaking to the person privately. After all, you will have the all your friends and family watching and listening to what you are saying. If what you want to say to your new partner is different to the speech you need to make on your wedding day. - It might be a nice gesture to give your bride to be or future husband a card with a romantic message to read before they set out for the wedding ceremony. Then the romantic speech to be read out after the wedding can be one that is written in a way that the family and friends expect it to be. While your new partner knows of the private message shared in the card they read earlier.

Romantic Words for Weddings. Quotes.

Love is often in the fine detail, the small gesture of reaching out and being there at the right moment in time.

Treasure Love for it is a gift.

True Love will strengthen and comfort you when you need it.

Love and the strands of it, do not bind but grow stronger with time.

Two people in love can achieve more than one alone can dream.

A marriage is a journey shared and it gives meaning to the steps you take.

      I think this may be inspiration for many trying to find the right words to say how they feel, thank you Bernard. This page of mine is popular all year but it does get extra visits in February for some reason. I know it will never make me rich but I hope it helps to make people happy.

      True love that lasts.... is not the bubbles in a glass of champagne,it is not loving the rose or the petals that fall from it, it is loving the memory of being given the rose.

      If I could be ...

      The sun shining down on your face

      The soft breeze blowing through your hair

      If I could be ...

      The ring you wear on your hand

      The food you taste and bite

      The spot where you sit or stand

      The blanket that covers you at night.

      If I could only be ...
