A simple good night text can pack in a lot of punches, sometimes more than you can imagine. These short messages have such deep meanings that they can instantly alter your mood and make you smile before your trip to dreamland.
Good night beautiful. Sleep well.
It’s a simple few words really, at a normal hour, when people in her past might not have done the same.
But it’s more than words. It’s letting her know, ‘You are the last person I want to talk to today.’ It’s letting her know, ‘You are the last one I’m thinking of before I’m going to sleep.’
When you can’t be there next to her, it’s a few little words that tell her, ‘I want to be if I could.’
And you turn over in your own bed, imagining when she was right there next to you, looking forward to the next time she is.
You imagine a future where you don’t have to say goodbye but rather good night or good morning in person.
But until that day comes, a text will have to do.
It’s a genuine compliment that makes her blush and something that might be the highlight of what could have been a rough day.
It’s a small indication to her saying, ‘I can go to bed at ease now.’
It’s a little reminder that you are still hers and your heart only beats for her.
It’s more than a good night text.
It’s a simplistic action saying, ‘you matter to me.’
It’s easy to get caught up in busy schedules and forgetting little things. It’s easy to put people we love on the back burner. It’s easy to take people who we know will always be there for granted.
But one text at the end of a long day comes to mean so much. It freezes every stress and everything that went wrong and she smiles looking down because there’s confidence in you and someone who puts an effort into things that matter, like her.
It’s you making a choice every day.
Because as much as there has probably been trial and error of dating in your life before each other, somehow despite everything that could have been different, you’ve found one another. But more than that you choose each other too.
A good night text is saying, ‘I chose you today and I’ll choose you again tomorrow and every day after that.’
