What it means when your partner sends you good morning texts

You're waking up in the morning from a deep sleep thinking of all the things you need to get done for the day and then you hear something ding. It's your cell phone with a good morning text from your love. You immediately smile from ear-to-ear because you love waking up to messages from them. But what does it actually mean when they send you early morning greetings?

Mornings can be a hectic time, especially if you haven't yet had your morning coffee. So if you're the first thing they think about when they wake up, you're clearly a top priority in their life. Instead of thinking about work or their long commute, they're wondering how you're doing and if you slept well. 

Getting a morning text could mean they're marriage material

Moreover, if you can count on a text from them every single morning that likely means they're very stable. Relationship expert Dr. Harville Hendrix explained to Redbook that this is an important quality. Hendrix says you can likely "count on [them] to be predictable, reliable, and that [they're] essentially someone you could rely on if you owned a home together or had a child with [them]." These can be very important qualities for a future spouse-to-be.

Sending you messages in the A.M. also shows they care deeply for you. It's important for a partner to let you know they care through actions, and this is one sweet way of doing that. Dr. Terri Orbuch, a professor at Oakland University, told Greatist, "Saying and doing small, simple expressions of gratitude every day yields big rewards. When people feel recognized as special and appreciated, they're happier in that relationship and more motivated to make the relationship better and stronger."

So if your significant other is sending you thoughtful messages in the morning? It is a very good sign. They could end up being the partner you slow dance at your wedding with.
