What is romantic anyway?

What is romance anyway?

In order to be able to determine which sayings are romantic, we must first ask ourselves this question: what is actually romantic? After all, it was not without reason that Romanticism established itself as an epoch. It is characterized by the subjective and imaginative perception of people. Her motives are longing and love. Romanticism strives for infinity and to break the boundaries between dream and reality. It is no different with romantic sayings. If you are in love and write such a saying yourself, you are also writing down your very own thoughts about love and life.

Everyone has their own understanding of what is romantic. Some women like it clichéd with kneeling and a carriage, others find it romantic when a man cooks for them or takes good care of their children, and still others don't like candlelight and love poems. Love letters can also be something for men, as long as they are not too cheesy and plastered with rhymes. Not everyone likes to be the center of attention and can do something with public tokens of love. Not everyone is a fan of surprises.

Ultimately, you need to know for yourself what you and your partner find romantic and what not. In a romantic action, the focus should of course be on what is romantic for your partner. One shouldn't confuse romance with romantic clichés. So don't assume that something is automatically romantic to a person just because it's pink, public, or sung.

A saying about love

A saying about love doesn't come off your lips so easily. Many people find it difficult to talk about their feelings. If you're not into big talk, a romantic saying can help you express yourself clearly instead of avoiding your feelings.

Our numerous examples can help you to solve the blockage. Either you manage to write a saying about love yourself or you find out which romantic one suits you and your partner. Famous quotes from people or from films often summarize the meaning and content of love very well and can help you with the formulation.

But why not use the surprise effect and spontaneously create a romantic situation yourself? It doesn't have to be a ride on a horse on the beach, the main thing is that a private atmosphere can arise so that you can speak or hand over your saying in peace. Even the effort you make to spend time together and enjoy beautiful moments is romantic. If you adapt the saying to the planned situation, your partner will know that you have put a lot of effort into planning everything carefully.

Time in a relationship for romantic sayings

It's never too early for a romantic saying. The only thing that makes a difference is the content of the saying. Of course, you shouldn't surprise someone you've just met with a sudden confession of love. Neither should you devalue a long-term relationship with a rather friendly saying.

Here are a few examples of sayings that are more intended for the beginning of a relationship or for the dating time. You can't really rush something with them. But they're a nice gesture to show that you care about a person.

  1. I count the hours until you are with me again.
  2. You have impressed me from the first moment and awaken the feeling of the future in me.
  3. I just want to say thank you. Thank you for the nice dates, thank you for the nice moments and thank you for the unforgettable kisses.
  4. It's still too early for love, but I notice that I'm blooming more and more with you.
  5. I know there is more to both of us than friendship.

Now a few examples that are suitable for a long-term relationship. Even after such a long time, it's still nice to get a confession of love. As you do so, make sure that you appreciate the depth of your relationship and emphasize that your feelings are still the same as ever.

  1. The love between two people
    lives from the beautiful moments.
    But she grows through the difficult times
    that both of them manage together.
  2. Look in your eyes, you all
    confide in, share every joy with you,
    we overcome all pain.
    Sink into your eyes, almost into your love
    drown, that's what I wish from you,
    together - we!
  3. There are people with whom you can let your legs and soul dangle. You can just be yourself, without a facade, without a doubt, sometimes even without words. These people are rare, once you have found one you have to hold on to them.
  4. Every day a little more. I love you a little more every day. Every day I miss you a little more and every day I become more certain that you are the dream woman I have been looking for.
  5. We found each other like two leaves in the wind
    now we have a child and are forever connected.

Write romantic sayings yourself

Write romantic sayings yourself

If you want to write romantic sayings yourself, the assessment of your best partner is most important. If you want to maintain the relationship and you are already bothering to write a line yourself, you should make sure that you like the line. It should suit your partner and reflect your individual relationship. Capturing these specifics and putting them into words is easier said than done. We try to help you with this guide.


The first step in writing romantic sayings is brainstorming. First, write down everything that you can think of about your relationship, unsorted. Common hobbies, experiences or other things that connect you are suitable for this. You can jot down individual words, phrases or sentences. When you've gathered everything, you can divide your notes into clusters or rhymes, depending on your taste. This will bring some structure into it and simplify your writing process. Now either move along the rhymes or formulate a saying that doesn't rhyme and is simply thematically consistent. Sometimes simple lists of words and repetitions can be enough to create a nice saying. These key questions can help you with brainstorming:

  • When and where did we get to know each other?
  • What was the first thing he / she said to me?
  • Why can I imagine a future with him / her?
  • What were our best moments?
  • When did we first say I love you?


So that the saying is really romantic, you should avoid all clichéd phrases. Appeal to the specifics of your relationship and prove to your partner how comparable and irreplaceable he is to you. In order to find out and highlight your individual bond, these key questions will help you:

  • How do we complement each other well?
  • What are my favorite character traits about him / her?
  • How do we behave in conflict situations?
  • What have we been through so far?
  • What makes our relationship special?


In storytelling, you can use whatever you can think of about the questions from the brainstorming session. Depending on how long your romantic love text or saying should be, you can bring in different aspects of your relationship. When you have enough material to write several romantic sayings right away, use your inspiration and write it down. Who knows when you could next use a romantic saying again.

The future of your relationship

Romantic sayings are not only suitable when you want to say I love you. Even if there is an important step in your relationship and you don't know how to address it, you can use a saying. For example, if you would like to go on vacation with your partner for the first time or move in together, you can express this with a romantic saying.

  1. Franz Kafka once said: "He who cares best for the future is who cares for the present." - I promise to always protect and love you so that we can always build on each other in the future.
  2. It is said that the future cannot be foreseen. But I see our future very clearly in front of me and I am sure that it will happen that way.
  3. My heart. I ask you a question, it has occupied me for many days.
    In my dream I see both of us in one room.
    Let's move in together, you have given me previously unimagined powers.
    My love, she's never been so strong
    therefore it had to be that I ask you this.
    Finally I see clearly - please say yes!

Use your own quotations

Romantic sayings from quotes

To make your partner happy, you can also prove to him / her that you have paid attention and are proud of the little things in your relationship. Go inside and see if you have common insiders. Has your partner ever said something that impressed you or did you have a shared insight into your relationship or life? Write it down. Ideally, such a quote should of course be dated. Maybe you can think of at least the year.

Another possibility would be to write down everything from now on with the date that impresses you or that you simply find beautifully said. You make your partner so special because you are not only attentive, but also show admiration and respect for his personality.
