Sweet Ways To Describe Someone You Love

So let’s talk about some words that you can use to describe your loved one. 


Ladies – there is not a man in the world that doesn’t want to be referred to as being “handsome”.

Men – there is not a woman in this world who doesn’t want to be referred to as “beautiful”.

Using words like these can let the person you love know that you are attracted to them.

Not only that, but it can boost their confidence, mood, and sex drive!


Okay, this one seems pretty basic. But who wouldn’t want to be told that they are amazing? Telling someone that you think they are amazing tells them so much in one word. “You are amazing” tells someone not only that you appreciate them, but also that you love and accept them just the way they are – flaws and all.

When it comes to relationships, we all want and need to feel appreciated. Relationships where one partner does not feel appreciated are quick to crumble. So we should actually tell our partner that we appreciate them each and every day. 

Of course, you can also show your partner that you appreciate them by doing little things for them – making them dinner, doing a chore for them, or by simply saying, “thank you” or “you are appreciated”. The more one feels appreciated by you, the more appreciation they will have towards you.


Telling someone that you love that they are charismatic is like 10 compliments in one. It might be just one word, but it incorporates so many different things. By telling someone they are charismatic you are also telling them that they have a great personality, that they are liked by people around them (including you), and that they exuberant confidence, charm, and optimism. Charismatic is something we can all aspire to be and is a wonderful compliment to give someone you love. 


Confidence is a great thing. But no one wants to date someone who is arrogant or rude to others. People who are humble are kind, treat other people with respect, and don’t think of themselves above anyone else.  Humble people are also grateful, non-judgmental, and down to earth. 

By telling your partner that they are humble, you’re telling them that you like how they represent themselves and treat others. Again, it’s another great compliment that anyone should be proud to receive. 


This is a term that, of course, has to be used at the appropriate time. You don’t want to go to someone’s work and tell them they’re sexy. But if your partner has went out of their way to look great for you, hearing they look “sexy” can be the extra confidence boost they need to feel great about themselves, you, and put them in the mood. 


Every relationship needs fun. Couples who have fun together experience more positive emotions towards one another and are more satisfied in their relationships.

When going through difficult times, remembering the fun times you have together can be one of the things that helps you through. Telling someone they are fun is a great way to let them know that you enjoy their company and want to spend more time with them. 


Laughter is the best medicine. Not only does laughter stop negative emotions in their tracks, but it can also boost your mood and your immune system.

On top of that, laughter helps to relax your body, release endorphins (happiness hormones), burn calories, and can help to heal a damaged relationship. On top of that, it might even help you live longer! So the simple action of telling your loved one that they are funny is like telling them that they are your best medicine. 


Relationships don’t work without honesty. Period. Without honesty there is no trust, and without trust a relationship just can’t thrive.

Of course, honesty is an important quality to have not just in a relationship, but in life itself.

Honest people are trustworthy people, and trustworthy people are good people to surround yourself with. By telling your partner you love their honesty, you’re also telling them you trust them, which can help your relationship blossom. 


No one wants to feel like they can be replaced, and if you’re going to spend your life with someone, they should be irreplaceable to you.

Feeling like they are irreplaceable to you will bring someone closer to you and help to foster your relationship. Telling someone they are irreplaceable also lets them know that you want to keep them around for the long term and that you can’t see yourself with anyone else.


If you feel yourself being drawn towards someone, you can tell them you find them magnetic. Calling someone magnetic means that you feel a powerful force drawing you to them. You may not know what that force is (or maybe you do), but there’s something about them that you’re just attracted to. 


Quirky might not have always been a compliment, but in this day and age, having your own quirky personality traits is extremely attractive. Quirky traits are what sets someone apart from others, and being 100% authentically yourself can be super sexy. So if your partner has some unique character traits, don’t be afraid to let them know that you love their quirkiness.
