It’s easy to see and recognize that your partner truly loves you. But can you recognize that they genuinely value being with you? 

There are some telltale signs that clearly demonstrate this. But there are also the things your partner says that explicitly prove they truly value being with you. 

Here are just some of these phrases that your partner will use if they treasure you. 

1) “I love spending time with you”

When you love and appreciate someone, you typically want to spend as much time as you can with them, right?

If your partner says, “I love spending time with you,” you know they savor every second together, finding comfort, fun, love, and everything in between, in your presence. 

The laughter, conversations, and shared experiences are the highlights of their days. I only hope you feel the same.

2) “You make me happy”

Hearing this is heartwarming, isn’t it? Your partner genuinely believes you’re the source of joy in their life. 

Your smile, your kindness, and the way you care for them all contribute to their happiness. 

You definitely have a unique ability to brighten their darkest days.

3) “I’m grateful for the memories we create”

Going through life with a loved one has no price, and obviously, your partner treasures the shared experiences and memories you build together

They look forward to making even more memorable moments in the future.

You know, I have many photos in the cloud, and each and every morning, the app shares with me the images that were taken years ago. 

This really brings a smile to my face almost first thing in the morning and is a clever way to remind you to be more grateful for the people (and the memories) in your life. 

4) “You rock my world”

What about this banger? Have you heard this lately from your partner? If so, you have a profound impact on their mood, outlook, and the way you make them feel between the sheets. 

They feel a sense of brightness and positivity when they’re with you.

But if you haven’t heard this in a while (or ever), you might need to turn things up a notch. It may be a sign you’re taking your partner for granted.

5) “I love how we can talk about anything”

If your partner treasures the open and honest communication you share, they might say this. 

It means they feel comfortable discussing any topic with you, knowing that you listen without judgment.

That’s something that’s really admirable. As is the following:

6) “You inspire me to be a better person”

By saying this, your partner wants to let you know they see you as a source of motivation and inspiration. 

Your qualities and the things you typically do inspire them to strive for self-improvement and to become the best version of themselves.

Isn’t that amazing? Maybe you should become a motivational speaker… 

7) “I can’t imagine my life without you”

When you’re so in love with someone that you can’t imagine your life without them, that’s both emotional and terrifying. 

If you hear this, your partner envisions you as an integral part of their future. They can’t fathom a life where you’re not a significant presence.

That is a lot of pressure for some. Hope you feel the same thing back. 

8) “I appreciate everything you do for me”

Your SO recognizes the countless ways you go out of your way to make their life better. 

Whether it’s the small gestures like making their favorite meal or support during challenging times, your efforts don’t go unnoticed.

9) “You mean a lot to me”

Another thing we all like to hear, isn’t it? It means you hold a significant place in your partner’s heart. 

They cherish the connection you share, and you’re a priority in their life. In the end, your well-being and happiness matter deeply to them.

10) “I miss you when you’re not around”

This one’s incredibly sweet!

When you’re apart, your partner feels a void in their life. They crave your presence, even in the simplest of moments. Every second away from you feels incomplete.

It’s how I feel when my wife and son aren’t around. The first five minutes are great because you finally have some peace and quiet, but then it’s devastating. 

I should tell her this more often, but the truth is, we’re almost never apart. I count myself very lucky!

11) “You’re amazing just the way you are”

When our partner sees beauty in your uniqueness, they love your imperfections, quirks, and features because those are the things that make you who you are. 

You’re lucky because you don’t need to change for their love. They adore you as you are. 

Still, you give it all to be the best version of yourself most of the time. 

12) “I’m proud to have you in my life”

If your partner feels a sense of achievement and pride in having you as their partner, you know you’re doing something right. 

They’re not only grateful but also honored to share their life journey with you. And that’s what we’re here for on this beautiful but troubled planet. 

13) “You make my life better”

When your partner tells you, “You make my life better,” that’s like music to your ears, right? 

They clearly believe their life has been greatly enriched since you entered it. They find more purpose, happiness, and fulfillment because of your presence.

That’s one point for the good guys!

14) “I’m lucky to have you”

Another phrase that lets you know just how much they consider themselves fortunate and blessed to have you by their side

They acknowledge that you bring positivity and love into their life, making it richer.

Good for you for being such a good soul. 

15) “You’re the one I want to be with”

Among all the people in the world, your partner chose you. They find something unique in your connection and believe you are their ideal partner.

I’m still to this day amazed my wife chose to be with me. 15 years later, we’re still going strong with no end in sight!

16) “I can be myself when I’m with you”

Believe it or not, many men and women can’t fully relax around their partner even after they’ve been together for many years. 

Countless women hold in their farts and wake up before their husbands to put on makeup. 

On the other hand, many men do… I’m not sure what they do, to be honest. We’re mostly slobs and don’t care that much about our image.

So if your partner feels safe and accepted in your presence, they might share with you, “I can be myself when I’m with you.” 

They don’t need to wear masks, hold in their farts, or pretend to be someone they’re not because you provide a space where they can truly be themselves.

17) “I trust you completely”

Trust is the foundation of your relationship. Your partner has full confidence in your honesty, loyalty, and commitment. They also know you have their best interests at heart.

Most of the time, you won’t hear this phrase, but you’ll definitely feel it. Just don’t go and ruin it. 

18) “I’m here for you, no matter what”

Your partner’s dedication to you knows no bounds. They’re ready to support you through all of life’s ups and downs, through thick and thin.

They’ll always offer a steady hand to hold onto in times of need.

19) “You’re my best friend”

Beyond love, your partner sees you as their closest ally and confidant. They treasure the deep connection and the ability to share their innermost thoughts and sentiments with you.

You’re their best friend, and they’re yours. That’s a great feeling once you’re aware of it. 

20) “I want to grow old with you”

And lastly, if your partner envisions a lifetime of shared experiences, adventures, and milestones with you, they’ll say something like this. 

They’re committed to building a future together, where your love only deepens with time.

Final thoughts

It’s unrealistic to believe your partner will say all 20 of these beautiful things to you. Still, you can count yourself lucky if you hear a handful from time to time. 

On the other hand, why not remember some of these and express your gratefulness to them and tell them on a regular basis just how much you value being with them?

It could kick off a new chapter in your relationship where you express appreciation and love more regularly.
