Love Text Messages

Babe. Hunk. Love.

What do you have your husband saved as in your contact list? My husband is nearly a foot taller than me (I’m quite tiny!) and he is much larger and stronger than I am. He has eyes that change color from a faint green gold color to a pale or deep blue; no matter what color they are, they sparkle when he smiles. Oh, and when he smiles the right side of his mouth lifts slightly faster than than the other side. Needless to say he is charming, and did I mention strong?

So it’s only natural that I saved his phone number in my contacts under the name “Hunk.” Because he is so hunky! Little did I know that every time a friend or family member saw my screen light up with “Hunk Calling,” that I would be made fun of. Still, my family gets a laugh and thats a good thing right? (In case your wondering Paul has my number saved as “Darling Wife.” <<Awww!)


Reasons to text your spouse. Love. Encourage. Thank. Praise. Flirt. Excite. Encourage. Post with ideas for texting hubby love messages

Onto The Good Stuff! 
Texting your hubby is nothing new, but sometimes texting “I love you,” and “I miss you,” don’t quite lift up your man like you would like them too. Sometimes you might decide to text flirt with your spouse but you’re stumped for words. It’s hard to come up with sweet text messages for the one you love on the spot!

Or you might hope to encourage him but not know what to say. Other times you might want to give him something to look forward to, but being coy isn’t natural for you. I know the feeling, so as nerdy as this sounds, I made a list of text ideas that I could share with you as a jumping point! (And I talked my husband into creating ten messages that husbands who stumble across this post can text to their wives, cause we ladies like some sweet sms too!)

20 text message ideas you can send to your husband to tease, flirt, thank, adore, praise or encourage him. love on your spouse with your android!

Can You Make Him Blush?
I don’t know about you, but I get a whole lot of joy out of uplifting my husband. I especially love it when I text him something that completely surprises him (and maybe even makes his day)!
I hope you try a few these and enjoy seeing and reading his reactions. It could be something new for you two to look forward to! One other tip though, make sure that you mean what you text. If you are at a hard place in your marriage or an awkward place, and you don’t feel these mushy gushy feelings that I’ve plastered up there, then tone it done a bit. Start somewhere, even if it’s just “I truly hope you have a good day,” or “I’m going to pray for you today.” See where it goes! But always, always, truly mean the words you include in your sms love notes to your hunk!

    It’s surprising how the little things count, and this is a great example. Great suggestions, and I will definitely try a few out on my hunk. Stopping by from the No Rules Weekend blog hop.

    Great ideas Shirley! When my hubby & I have flirtatious texts it is a lot of fun. And yes, there are times when those feelings are not so easy. Choosing to love, and be loving, anyway can be a way to show grace in tough times.

      Jolene, that is true! I’ve been trying to focus more on grace in my marriage since I know my hubby shows me so much of it! Thanks for stopping by and putting it that way! 🙂

      Thank you Gaye! Somehow I missed this comment before! Sorry I didn’t respond sooner. I’m thrilled that you stopped by. I was just telling my husband about your website the other day; it’s one of my favorites! Thanks again. 🙂

    I normally always send loving texts but last week was hectic while he was away on business and I forgot to send him anything encouraging for three days. He sent me a text saying he was sorry and I asked for what. He told me that whatever he did to upset me and he knew it must have been something cause all I sent messages about was the house.

    When he got home we talked about it and that my messages kept him going through out the day. Made me feel great to know that my messages helped him.

      Natasha, I’m so happy to hear this! Not every hubby is able to show their appreciation, but I think ‘encouraging’ is a huge part of a wife’s calling! My husband often doesn’t respond to the texts because he is very busy and drives a lot, but he usually tells me how much he enjoys receiving them. It’s such a small thing to offer our men! Thanks for coming by!

      Kathryn, I’m glad you enjoyed the list. Feel free to comment with any additional ideas you have (and are willing to share!) I’m always on the hunt for new encouragements for my hubby. 🙂 Thanks again!
