There are countless cute ways to say goodnight, but we’ve gathered some of the most classic and touching messages to send when inspiration is missing.

Good Night

It’s short, sweet and to the point. If you’re too tired to say anything more or know he’s up late practicing for a big meeting at work, there’s no reason to say much more than this.

I’d love to talk to you more but I can’t keep my eyes open.

Who doesn’t remember those moments in the beginning of a relationship when you’d rather forsake sleep or food to talk to your beau? New relationships are so full of potential that we can get carried away. Sometimes you just have to put down the phone to get some shut eye.

I love you, good night.

If your relationship is a bit more established, you can end your conversation with “I love you”. Not sure if you should say those three little words?

I always sleep better with you here, but I’ll have to sleep alone tonight.

Sure, there’s something to be said for not having to share the bed. But it’s also wonderful when you can curl up in your man’s arms and wake up beside him the next morning. It’s one of the reasons couples move in together.

This cute way to say goodnight shows your man that you miss him.. and it could also lead to a little naughty texting if you like that.

Sweet dreams, my love.

You’re ready to get your beauty rest, but you can’t do so without saying goodnight to the man you love. This good night text wishes him well through the sleeping hours. Perhaps you’ll be in his dreams after wishing him well!

We couldn’t be together today, but perhaps we’ll meet in our dreams.

If you’ve tried the previous cute ways to say goodnight, here’s another option. It ties into wishing your man sweet dreams but takes it one step further by suggesting that you’ll dream about him, too!

Did you know you can control what you dream about? It’s call lucid dreaming, and it’s key to having sex dreams.

I miss you already.

Sure, it’s a little cheesy, but it’s also sweet. If you’re in the middle of that honeymoon period, it might almost hurt when you’re away from your man. This is one way to describe the longing your heart feels when you can’t be together.

You can also create a playlist of songs about missing someone you love.

Today was perfect.

You spent all day with your boo but you need to return home to get an early start on the morning. Don’t let him go to sleep without reminding him about what a good time you had.

I can’t wait until we can fall asleep together and I can wake up next to you.

Rather than looking back on the day, this one is all about making future plans. Eventually, you’ll move in together or be married. You’ll share a bed, a home and a life. Those are goals worth making and dreaming about – even if sometimes you daydream about it.

You’re always the last thing I think of before I fall asleep and my first thought in the morning.

Few other things indicate that you’re in love as much as thinking about someone first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Let him know that he’s always on your mind with this sweet message.

There are plenty of cute ways to say goodnight. If you can personalize it by adding an inside joke or nickname, it’ll be more meaningful than something that’s generic or cliche.


It seems like we’re always connected to our phones, and this makes it easy to send a text. But there are other cute ways to say goodnight that don’t necessarily “say” it. Consider the following ideas.

  • A phone call: Hearing your lover’s voice before bed is intimate in a way that texting can’t match.
  • Snapchat/selfie: Open your phone one last time to send a cute selfie.
  • Voice clip: You can send a voice clip via text message or Facebook messenger if you think your man’s got his ringer on. He might not hear it until the morning, but your goodnight message will still sound sweet to his ears.
  • Skype/video: This is a great way for you to stay connected if you’re in a long-distance relationship. Tell him you love him, wish him goodnight and blow him a kiss before you sign off.
  • Leave a message/chocolate: You’ve spent the night at his house, but now must go home. Leave a note (you can spray it with your scent) or even leave a snack on his pillow. This way, he’ll think of you right before he drifts off to sleep.

Of course, now that you’ve read this list, you’ll easily be able to think of more cute ways to say goodnight. This means you’ll never repeat yourself, and it won’t become a routine. This way your man will always be on his toes and not know what to expect.

Sending goodnight messages, even if you don’t do it every day, is good for your relationship. It’s good practice for you to let your man know that you care, and it’ll keep him feeling warm and fuzzy about your relationship. It sets you up to receive your own cute goodnight messages, too!
