Love Paragraphs for Her, Sweet Paragraphs to Say to Your Girlfriend
We all look for new and different ways to express our love. Sure, flowers, candy and meaningful gifts have a place. But here’s the best of all ideas: Send her a love letter. Sound old-fashioned? Try “timeless” instead. Letters remain at the top of her sincerity list.
Being in love is an incredible feeling. It is likely the strongest emotion of all. Saying “I love you” is one of the most significant highlights of a relationship. However, declaring those words involves finding the perfect timing so that the words will have impact. So, when is the best time to reveal those words to her? Does sending a love letter still work these days?
A unique and thoughtfully written love letter makes her feel special. No need to wait for an anniversary, birthday or holiday like Valentine’s Day to say how important she is to you. But, slow down and get it right.
“Rushing to achieve an unripe romantic profundity is often harmful -- patience and calmness is the name of the game,” writes Ben-Ze'ev in The Arc of Love. (1) It’s not necessarily about the timing, but more about giving love the time to grow and flourish.
When to Say I Love You
And Our Expert Says...
The best time to say "I love you" is once you're clear on these 3 things:
- You're not saying it because you think she's losing interest in you or your relationship.
- Your relationship with her has become a normal part of your life. You're used to her and used to having her in your life now.
- You are clear that you want to build a future with her.
- Saying "I love you" is powerful, so you want to be sure it's the right time to say it. If you have any doubts about any of the three points above, don't say it! There's plenty of other good, romantic and passionate things to say instead. - Eric Charles
Men take an average of 88 days to confess love to a partner whereas women, 134 days on average, according to a Psychology Today survey. (1) Some 39 percent of men say it within the first month of dating compared to 23 percent of women. (1)
Look for signs she feels the same way you do. Perhaps she’s not quite ready to say it and is waiting for you to go first. That should not stop you from expressing your love. Just realize her love may not grow at the same pace as yours. (1)
How to Write a Love Letter
A love letter is a gift of you. For her. Sharing yourself with her is an altruistic effort by a person in love. Giving her some sweet prose or even a simple single line of love proclaimed is a gift she just might cherish forever.

"Prince Harming Syndrome"
How to boost your love connection with a romantic love note:
- Don’t simply write about general qualities you love about your girlfriend. Think about specific times she showed these qualities. For example, instead of simply saying: “I love how kind you are.” Say: “I loved when I told you I was nervous about a job interview, and you helped me to practice what I’d say to the interviewer. You’re so thoughtful and kind.”
- Remember: Actions speak far louder than the best written love letter! Make sure you back up all your romantic words with lots of loving gestures and caring deeds.
Consider these tips when writing (2):
- Be honest. Take this opportunity to say all you want to say. Be sure every word in it speaks from your heart.
- Give yourself time to re-read what you’ve written before sending it to her. Be spontaneous, but don't let a typo or bad grammar ruin the moment. She’ll notice.
- Be specific if it helps. A love letter will represent you, your thoughts, and your intentions. Tell her why you’re sending her the letter. She may be more delighted to hear an answer like “because I can’t stop thinking about you… ” or “because I want you to know my true feelings for you…” rather than a fuzzy answer like “for no reason at all.”
- Consider starting your letter with a romantic memory such as recalling how the two of you first met. (3, 4) Then, transition to telling her about the things you love about her, why you admire her, and how happy you are that you’ve known her. You also can speak of personal things other than love, like how meeting her has changed your life. (3)
- End the letter by reaffirming your love, thanking her, and telling her that you are looking forward to all that lies ahead for both of you.
Long and Captivating Paragraphs for Her about Love

Everything I do is for us and I hope you know that I am always trying to do the right thing that will make our relationship a stronger one. You have inspired me to be the best version of myself that I can possibly be and I hope that I can somehow repay you for everything that you have done for me.

And in turn, everything you say resonates with me like no other. You have showed me that in this world filled with apathy, there is one person who can love me for who I really am.

When I look at you, I know that I have truly hit the jackpot. All you have to do in order to warm my heart is be the loving, caring person that you are. Together, we can do so much and help each other realize our dreams because we truly have a love that is special.
- You have always been my biggest supporter and fan. You’ve always had my back and in your eyes, I can do nothing wrong which has built my confidence throughout my life. Thank you, darling, for loving me unconditionally and forever! You have made me the man I am today and I will always love you with all my heart. People say they would love to have a wife that would do anything for her husband. I have that in you and I appreciate all that you do and have always done in my life. You will be the love in my heart to eternity.
- You are my strength. You are not only the sails that steer my ship, but you are also the waves below that carry me. Without you, I would cease to have a backbone, as you are the entire foundation holding me up. I could never think of a day where you are not with me. I imagine if that day came, I would become weak. I would crumble into a coward. But together we are strong. We are unstoppable. That is why I love you.
