Romantic & Sweet Texts To Send (SMS)
Meandering through books of poetry, old letters, sayings and quips I found a few tidbits that translate beautifully through your phone. Never underestimate the power of romantic banter... and texting suits itself to it so well!
"Would have answered your text sooner, but you didn't send one." (inspired by Goodman Ace)
"Would it be too dangerous for us to meet again?" (How to Write Love Letters by Michelle Lovric)
"Where? When? How much?" (Prince de Joinville)
"Your place. Tonight. We'll see. (inspired by actress Rachel Felix's reply to the Prince cir. 1840's)
"Tell me all about your sweet self..." (vintage 50's letter)
"Have you forgotten? Or is the way lost? I keep waiting and waiting." (poet Ryokan to Teishin)
"I'll follow you and make a heaven out of hell..." (a little William Shakespeare for someone who's had a bad day)
"je suis folle pour toi"
"What's more delicious, wanting or having you?"
"Look under your pillow..." (hide something sweet)
"Come! Come!! Come!!!" (Sarah Bernhardt to Charles Haas)
For more inspiration be sure to get a copy of one of the best books on love letters, How to Write Love Letters by Michelle Lovric who's short versions are perfect for texting. I'm sure you all can come up with something to add... if so leave your sweet nothings in the comments section to help inspire us all because life's a bore without romance!
I started looking for you,
not knowing how blind I was.

they're in each other all along. -RUMI
