Before my partner and I lived together, we would always send each other good night texts. It was really sweet and always made me feel special because who doesn't want to feel like the last thing the person you're crazy about thinks of? The thing is though, if it's just a quick little "nighty night," then it can quickly turn into a routine that kills the magic. That's the last thing you want when the whole point of the message was to make them feel special, right? So in that case, when you're coming up with texts to send your partner before bed, why not get a little more creative?
When it comes to sending a good night message, a little effort goes a long way. If you really want them to have sweet dreams, don't just say, "Yo sweet dreams, boo." Personalize it and make it unique and in your own voice.
Hey, I get it; it's bed time and you're tired. So I'll tell you what. Here are 30 ideas of goodnight texts, raging from sweet to sexy AF to help inspire you tonight. Take any of these and put your spin on them, and your partner is sure to feel all the love 120 characters and a handful of emojis can express.
