love quote for him YourTango

Have you ever experienced a moment when you desperately wanted to turn to the man in your life and explain to him exactly how you're feeling and precisely how much you love him — but for some reason, find that the words just won't seem to come to your mind or head out of your mouth and into his ears?

Of course, you have. We've all been in situations like at some point in our lives.

And that's where these romantic love quotes for him will come in handy!

Sometimes, there really are no words that can accurately describe the intensity of the ways you feel about someone. You just feel them — hard.


Try as hard you might, under those kinds of circumstances, you simply may not be able to put your emotions and the wonderful things you're feeling into words. At least, not into words of your own.

So, naturally, you turn to other methods for coming up with different ways to say 'I love you' to this amazing creature with who you'd like to exchange wedding vows eventually.

Maybe you get them a nice little gift. Or cook them a special dinner. Or do that one thing to him you know drives his body and mind absolutely crazy in the very best of ways.

It doesn't matter much what it is you choose. You do all of these special things because you want to make sure you show him just how much you care.


But what if you were able to find an absolutely perfect phrase that somehow manages to define and describe the very essence of your love and your relationship?

Something more creative than saying, "I love you," but not as so off-the-wall and out of the range of normal that it rises to the drama level of a full-on public display like, say, a flash mob.

I mean, hey, if that's your thing, then more power to you. But for the vast majority of us, all we crave is the right words to say at just the right time to the oh-so-right person.

And what kind of guy, when you're all cuddled up in bed together, wouldn't want to hear you describe your love for him in the form of a perfect one-liner — men have short attention spans, so one line will be more than plenty — whispered in his ear by your sweet voice?


Pillow talk is a powerful tool! It's intimate, it's honest, and it's heartfelt.

And now, it's listed for you right here!

When in doubt about what to say, here are beautiful love quotes that are sure to make him putty in your hands. Or inspire him to pounce you right then and there ... Whatever works for the two of you.
