You Know He’s Asleep, But You Really Want To Text Him: 57 Perfect Messages He’ll Love To Wake Up To

Today, let's talk about cute messages to send to your boyfriend while he's sleeping.

Why send texts when you know the recipient won't get them right away?

Think about it: Who doesn't enjoy reading romantic, thoughtful messages upon waking up?

First, we'll do a strategy review and then look at 57 rise-and-shine texts that will remind your guy how much you care for him.

What Should I Text My Boyfriend When He’s Sleeping?

Texting your boyfriend while he’s sleeping is sweet.

But what should you say?

Before composing and pressing send, let’s first consider a few categories of as-you-slumber messages.

  • I Love You: A well-placed “I love you” message has the power to brighten your boyfriend’s day. But don’t go overboard. If you send them daily, the gesture loses its punch.
  • Don’t Forget: An early morning reminder sprinkled with affection works well if you need your man to be somewhere or do something that day.
  • Just Thinking of You: If you’re not at the “I love you” stage, a “thinking of you” message is the right choice. Make it sweet or sassy — the choice is yours.
  • Silly: Every text doesn’t need to be filled with roses and sweet nothings. Sometimes, a little silliness hits the spot.
  • I’m Sorry: Did you mess up? Send him a message while he’s sleeping to apologize. It’ll be a nice surprise for him when he wakes; plus, it gives you some space to say you’re sorry without immediately discussing the incident.
  • Change of Plans: Are you meeting at 7:30 p.m. instead of 7 p.m.? Did the restaurant change? A cute wake-up text could let him know.
  • Good Luck: Does he have a big presentation or meeting? What better way to start the day than with a good luck message of encouragement from you!? It’s thoughtful.
