In my 10 years as a relationship therapist, I’ve found that nearly all of the couples I have counseled have seen a huge improvements in their relationships after they started sending each other SMS love messages.
What do I Write?
The best SMS love messages are short and punchy, but still romantic. The limit for a text message is 160 characters, so your message has to be concise. The only real requirements are that the message should be genuine and personal.
The easiest way to go about personalizing an SMS message is by using your partner’s name, or referencing a common experience or an inside joke between the two of you. It’s the method I use in my own relationship, and that’s lasted 25 years, so we must be doing something right.
To make the SMS genuine, I recommend trying to come up with something for yourself.

I will always love. ” is way too cheesy to be taken seriously.
Unless you’re going to that, you should stay away from those and pickup lines. Sure, they can be funny, but will your other half really consider it a love message? It’s best to come up with your own; they may not be as well written as some, but the fact that they’re your own words meant for only one other person makes it special.
Get To It!
Writing romantic and compelling SMS love messages for your lady or man is simple. All you need to do is remind them that they’re important to you. Whether you do it with a simple, “Thinking of you,” or a short poem about something about them you like, or even words appreciating their good looks and talent, SMS love messages are a great way to help keep your relationship healthy.
