5 Sweet Texts To Send Before Bed So You're On Your Partner's Mind As They Go To Sleep

by Cosmo Luce

The second-best thing next to falling asleep beside your partner is falling asleep thinking about them, and the third-best thing is waking up happy because you just remembered how much your baby loves you. That's why it's so nice to have some sweet texts to send before bed. Even if they don't see your message before they start to snooze, they'll wake up to your gentle sentiments in the morning. What better way to connect with your sweetheart when you can't be by their side? Even when you're in your own space, you're never truly apart.

People are usually extra vulnerable just as they are falling asleep and when they are waking up. You know how getting up on the wrong side of the bed in the morning can have a negative effect on the rest of your day? Well, in the same sense, sending your partner a sweet text message can also have a big impact on the person's morning. Being flooded with a warm, loving feeling right when you wake up is one of the most amazing experiences you can have in your daily life, and when you are in a relationship with someone you love, you can give them just that.

Here's what to say to make your partner feel all sweet and safe inside as they are falling asleep or waking up.

1. Find Another Way To Say They're The Person Of Your Dreams

Some people believe that when you dream about somebody, it means your souls are actually communicating while you sleep. Whether or not you and your partner believe that's real, it's still a nice sentiment to share as you're drifting off into your nightly dreams.

2. Give Them An Image

You might also be going to bed in your sloppiest t-shirt curled up next to a pizza box, but hey, we all need a night to ourselves sometimes, and your partner never has to know.

3. Tell Them You Miss Them

There's nothing quite like spending a few nights on your own to make you really appreciate having a big spoon! And while you can always coerce your pet into snuggling up with you, it's not really the same as cuddling with another person. Text your partner this so they'll know you appreciate them when they can be there.

4. Say Something Supportive

If your partner has to get up early the next day for an important presentation or a job interview, you should definitely send them an encouraging text before bedtime to be their confidence boost. Part of being in an intimate relationship involves being one another's full-time cheerleading squad. Send this text to quell their nerves and let them know that whatever happens, they'll always have you in their court.

5. Be Unapologetically Cute

This is the kind of thing that my mom used to say to me when I was falling asleep as a kid, and even though I don't want a partner to be my parent, there's something that's still really sweet and comforting about receiving these kinds of messages today. Being unabashedly sweet with your partner helps you both tune in to the age-old innocence and vulnerability of childhood, which will allow you both to have such a strong emotional connection when you drift off to sleep that it continues in your waking hours.

Having so much access to somebody's emotions, as you do when you are in a loving relationship, is an incredible gift. Texting your partner a sweet goodnight just as they are heading to bed is a way to peacefully and lovingly influence their mood in the best way possible. And like the best presents out there, sending a sweet sentiment doesn't cost you a single cent.
