Many diaries are filled with cute boyfriend quotes, inspired by the romance and excitement of being in love. Looking for some inspiration of your own? Check out some places to see what other lovers have said.
The Language of Lovers
One of the fun parts of falling in love is that it can tend to affect your ability to think, much less speak, rationally. When emotions are running high and you're full of that "new relationship energy" there is a tendency to speak in hyperbole, to make grand statements of intent. At the same time you end up saying some of the most inane things as well, just because your mind is so occupied by the one you love.
Men are notorious for becoming tongue-tied when they fall in love. At the same time, the most eloquent lovers in history are men: Shakespeare, Cyrano de Bergerac, Rilke, e.e. cummings. Somewhere in between fall the cute boyfriend quotes that tend to be categorized into one of three categories.
The Sweet Nothing
When at a loss of what to say, often boyfriends will try and fill the silence with some compliment that has very little to do with anything. He may talk about how much he likes the scent of your hair or the color of your eyes. He may be a bit more eloquent and talk about the time he is enjoying with you. Some websites record sayings as silly as "We drive each other crazy because we're crazy about each other." Meaningless, but sweet.
The Clueless Remark
Western boyfriends in particular are not known for their sensitivity or savoir faire when it comes to love. At the same time, there is a kind of adorable nature to some of their cluelessness. Jimmy Fallon may have said it best: "I know what you want. And I know what you need. But I'm gonna screw it up, yeah, cause I'm an idiot. And I'm your boyfriend."
Taking Your Breath Away
There are also the times when your boyfriend says exactly the right thing at exactly the right time. While some of these may be in a movie, there are also plenty of moments in real life that they say just what you need to hear in a way that makes your heart sing. If it's been a while since you've heard your boyfriend say something like, "The best thing about me is you" it may be time to read through this and remember it can happen. You can even vote on what quotes you think are the best at some sites such "Great Quotes," which has an entire section on cute boyfriends.
Create Your Own Cute Boyfriend Quotes
It's easy to start your own collection of cute sayings, whether you have a boyfriend or not. Simply set aside a notebook and pen where you can get to it easily (next to your bed or in a desk drawer). Then get in the habit of jotting down the funny or witty things that your boyfriend says or some of the things your ex once said. It may be in person, online, or over the phone, but the idea is that you are recording them in your own hand. Don't limit it to what he says, either; odds are, your friends and family will also have some choice words to say about your boyfriend, so make sure you record them.
What If You Break Up?
If a relationship ends, it may be tempting to throw away the book or worse. While it's true that it would be hard to deal with reading about the happy times at first, eventually you heal from a breakup. Years later, pulling out the book of cute boyfriend quotes may be just what you need to remember the happy times and reflect on the joy of love without the pain of loss.
If you do keep your own journal of boyfriend quotes, it's probably a good idea to keep it private. Showing it to him might make him self-conscious, and showing it to someone else while you're still dating might be considered a breach of trust. The journal should be a source of joy and a reflection of the love you share.
