Why this is cute: After a relationship is no longer new, sometimes people can worry that their partner doesn’t find them as attractive or exciting as they did in the beginning stage of the relationship. This is a cute thing to say because it reminds her that you are still passionate about her and that you will never stop recognizing how amazing she is!

9You’re my best friend
Why this is cute: The strongest relationships often happen when romantic partners are able to call each other their best friend as well as their significant other. Even though she respects all of your friendships and would never try to replace any of your friends, she also wants to know that you want to come to her when you want to talk about your feelings or just bum around.

12I don’t notice other girls anymore
Why this is cute: Even if the girl you’re dating seems like the most confident girl in the world, she will still sometimes have a worry in the back of her mind that you will find another girl that you think is more attractive than her.

Telling her that she is a triple-threat of attractiveness will boost her confidence and she’ll probably remember this as one of her favorite compliments ever!
15Every time you smile my heart stops for a moment
Why this is cute: This is a particularly cute thing to say when you have been dating your girlfriend for a long time.
