15 Lesbian quotes to impress your crush

Romance is in the details, and if you’d like to profess your love to a friend, girlfriend, crush, or wife, then you need the perfect quotes that will make her swoon while reading that pop-up card you got at the grocery store, or to type on a cheesy but cute Instagram caption.

We put together the most clever, romantic words from film, television, and books any woman will adore, so here are 15 lesbian quotes to use in your perfectly-written love confession.


From the hit TV Show that brought us Jules and Rue

“And although she had never been in a relationship, or even in, like, love, she imagined spending the rest of her life with her.” ― Euphoria (2019 – present).

This first quote is for the one that changed it all. She shook your world and taught you what true love is like, and you deserve a lifetime of happiness together.


For the gals who like to sprinkle humor in their lives

“Who wears the pants in our lesbian relationship? We prefer it when neither of us is wearing pants.” ― Wanda Sykes.

Show her you know your comedy with these words by the legendary lesbian Wanda Sykes.


A quote for your partner-in-crime

“She’s my role model, my traveling companion, my most reliable source of light, my fortitude.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert.

The perfect one for anniversaries and big celebrations. Whatever the author was feeling when writing this, is what I like to call #goals.


When she makes you better and you grow together

“To love another woman is to look at yourself in the mirror and determine that you are worthy of the galaxy and its fury.” ― Gabby Rivera.

It is true. Ladies always push us to improve ourselves and understand that we still deserve good things even if we’re not there yet. 

For the one you can always trust

“Instead of disappearing, she makes me feel reappeared. Reimagined. Her touch shapes me, draws out the boldness that had been hiding in my core.” ― Natasha Ngan.

Sometimes, she’s the only one who understands, the one person that allows us to be who we really are, unfiltered, and it’s on us to show gratitude with beautiful words like these



A unique petition for a lifetime together

“I named both of her eyes Forever and Please Don’t Go.” ― Mary Lambert.

We can all agree that loving a stare so much that you want it to point at you forever is the real thing.


You can’t go wrong with a classic

“I have infinite tenderness for you. I always will. My whole life.” ― Emma, Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013).

Raise your hand if you’ve been personally victimized by this movie! Yet, it still holds a place in some sapphics’ hearts because it was one of the few pieces of representation available, and it has quotes like this that make you melt.


A special quote to save for your soul mate 

“Someone, I tell you, will remember us, even in another time.” ― Sappho.

Imagine sharing a love so grand, you know it should make history. Write this in your lover’s letter if you’re sure that what you share will transcend time.


To show that you’re in it for real

“The color seeps from her like an aura, equal parts bold and soft. She’s a thousand contradictions. She’s the snow and the sun.” ― Katia Rose.

We are complex, we are human, and feeling understood through all our fascets is the definition of true love. Let her know that your feelings go beyond those contradictions.


For the girl that melts the worries away

“She felt like safety. She felt like home.” ― Jeannie Levig.

How beautiful is it to feel safe in the arms of your partner! It is an act of courage to be so vulnerable in front of another person.


Actions speak louder than words

“There is no word in our language that can describe us. How we feel for each other. “ — Sita, Fire (1996).

How deep is your love? We recommend you act on your feelings and write on that note what’s really in your heart.


For the ladies that have been coupled up for a while

“I didn’t know how to not be with her.” — Tig Notaro.

I love this for you! That you’ve become bound together in the best way imaginable because you match each other so well, and it would be crazy not to share a minute of your life with the other.


If you want to make her fall even harder

“It isn’t as simple as a fascination of the flesh. It’s everything about her that I love: her intelligence, her ambition, her talent, her sense of humor, her dependability, her kindness.” — Kristen Zimmer.

I know you think she’s the most beautiful, stunning, gorgeous, mesmerizing creature to ever step on the planet, and she might as well be! But we both know she’d like to hear what else you see her as. Showcase her inner beauty as well!



Friends-to-lovers has entered the chat

“When your best friend becomes your girlfriend, it feels like you’ve won the jackpot.” – Unknown.

You truly are a winner if you are with a woman that checks all the boxes: A BFF you can also kiss. Don’t let her go!


If their love inspires you

“With you, I am not afraid to show off my true love color.” — Quintin Gellar 

At the people who relate to this last quote: I’m so happy you get to experience a love so strong that it encourages you to be who you want to be.

And that’s it! We hope these served as inspiration for your love letters, big gestures, or just for a regular day of the week when you want to make your partner feel a little extra special.
