There are some amazing quotes out there that capture how it feels to be in a relationship. No one said that maintaining a long-lasting relationship would be easy, but having someone there by your side to spend your life with is one of the best human experiences. We’ve compiled our list of cute relationship quotes that are bound to have you thinking about your own partner.
“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”
A great way to start off this list is with a well-known quote from C.G. Jung. We love the idea of being transformed for the better when you meet that someone special. Though this quote can spin both ways, we’re choosing to apply it to love and those who are most important to us.
Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song
“I mean, if the relationship can’t survive the long term, why on earth would it be worth my time and energy for the short term?”
This is one of those harsh reminders that you need to put in the work during a relationship. Sometimes people know right away that they want their partnership to last and if someone isn’t going to put in the same amount of time then they would rather spend their time elsewhere. Relationships need a commitment to last and this quote reminds you of that.
Ernest Hemingway, Men Without Women
“The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.”
Don’t forget that your feelings are just as valid as your partner’s. Remember that you and your significant other both deserve to be heard and cared for; don’t lose yourself in a relationship or forget that you’re a special person too.
“Truth is everybody is going to hurt you: you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.”
Whether we like to admit it or not, relationships are going to have their fair share of pain. Even though you may fight or squabble with your partner, you two will always talk things through and work it out. It doesn’t matter if you get into the occasional tiff because the overall positivity of the relationship will remain.
Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard. We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, you and me, every day.”
Even if you know things might be difficult that’s no reason not to try. No relationship is without its obstacles but when you want someone there isn’t anything that will stand in your way. Sometimes nothing matters more than finding your way to the person you know you’re destined to be with.
William P. Young
“Trust is the fruit of a relationship in which you know you are loved.”
Many things go into making a relationship work and one of the key ingredients is trust. Communicating with your partner and ensuring that you’re always honest with them will give you two the foundation you need to keep the flame burning for years to come. One of the best feelings in a relationship is knowing you can be completely honest with each other and knowing how much you love each other.
Alain de Botton
“Intimacy is the capacity to be rather weird with someone – and finding that that’s ok with them.”
You and your partner will have little quirks that make you unique. The ability to share those quirks with someone and still have them adore you for who you are is the kind of acceptance we all thrive for. Being yourself with the person you want to spend your time with is easily one of the best things out there.
Jamie Randall, Love & Other Drugs
“Sometimes the things you want the most don’t happen and what you least expect happens. I don’t know – you meet thousands of people and none of them really touch you. And then you meet one person and your life is changed forever.”
Oftentimes we take the relationships we have for granted. But there’s something to be said about meeting that one person who will change your life forever, for the better. Entering into a relationship with someone who’s done that for you is something special.
Pandora Poikilos, Excuse Me, My Brains Have Stepped Out
“Learn to deal with the fact that you are not a perfect person but you are a person that deserves respect and honesty.”
Sure this is a list about relationships, but that doesn’t mean it should exclude reminders about your own well-being. Loving and respecting yourself will help you to love and respect others. Be honest with yourself and you’ll have no trouble being honest with your partner, which is an important part of any relationship.
Estelle Paddington, Valentine’s Day
“When you love someone, you love all of them. You got to love everything about them, not just the good things, but the bad things too. The things that you find lovable and the things you don’t.”
No one said that anyone is perfect. Even though we think our partners are perfect, everyone has their set of flaws. The important thing to remember is that even if your significant other doesn’t live up to the crazy standards set by pop culture, they’re still the person who treats you right and deserves to be loved for who they are.
Jim Butcher, Small Favor
“Caring about someone isn’t complicated. It isn’t easy. But it isn’t complicated, either. Kinda like lifting the engine block out of a car.”
It might not be easy, but loving someone doesn’t require a road map. Love will probably tire you out, include some sweat and tears, and won’t be pretty all the time, but it’ll be worth it. Don’t worry about the trials and tribulations in your relationship because every couple goes through those same things and when you’re with the right person, little arguments won’t matter.
Mac MacGuff, Juno
“In my opinion the best thing you can you do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you. The right person will still think the sun shines out of your a**. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with.”
We’ve included this before on our list of inspirational quotes, but it doubles as one of the best relationship quotes. No matter if you’re having a bad day, just got out of bed, or reek of coffee breath, the person you’re with will love you for who you are and that’s how it ought to be.
Sara Thomas, Serendipity
“And it was like, in that moment, the whole universe existed just to bring us together.”
You know, when you’re with the right person it honestly just feels like the whole world conspired to bring you two together. When you sit back and think about it, it’s hard not to reminisce about when you first met and how things in your life perfectly aligned so you could meet the love of your life. There’s something truly beautiful about that knowledge.
Harry Burns, When Harry Met Sally
“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”
When you’re hit with that thunderbolt (as they call it) you just know that someone is going to affect your life forever. Sometimes we just can’t help ourselves from wanting to jump feet first into the rest of our lives with the person we know is our soulmate.
Sean Maguire, Good Will Hunting
“It doesn’t matter if the guy is perfect or the girl is perfect, as long as they are perfect for each other.”
We end our list with a quote from a timeless movie filled with terrific quotes. Robin Williams’ character sums up our thoughts on relationships wonderfully: people aren’t perfect and we know that. But as long as you find someone who’s perfect to you, nothing else matters.
