10 Good Night Messages for Friends

Sometimes figuring out what to say before the phrase, “Good Night”, is the hard part. Good night is easy…and it’s actually a great expression, since it conveys wonderful feelings of care, protection, well wishes and genuine human concern.

Unfortunately everyone uses this old expression and it’s lost a lot of its emotional impact. People on social media say it, talk show hosts say it, and even my old dorm room friend back in college Bubba used to say it to me before he went to bed. And when Bubba said it, it was far from romantic!

So while the “good night” is the peak of the message and the thing that makes him smile…the words you use before that is what matters the most. What can you say to a man that’s interesting, impacting, and memorable?

It depends on who he is and what you actually want from him. That’s why for this article we’re going to consider 10 different good night messages for three levels of male friendship:

• Platonic (as in your buddy, a big brother type or gay pal that you have no romantic interest in at all)
• Possibly romantic (as in a handsome stranger you’d like to get to know), or
• Friend-zoned guy (meaning you really don’t want a relationship with him, and it’s better you stay friends or even acquaintances)

Here we go…

As we’ve discussed, sometimes the kind of relationship you have or WANT, will dictate what kind of messages you send the man in question. Do you want to turn this friendship into something more? Or do you want to remind him kindly that you’re not romantically interested in him?

Last but not least, don’t forget to send sweet and caring messages to your platonic friends too. Platonic friendship is a marvelous thing. These are the friendships that can truly last a lifetime, the ones that are safe from the burn of bad romance and disappointment. Like any other type of relationship, they need some TLC too. So let your friends know how much you appreciate them!
