In the romantic sense, 'companion' sounds very euphemistic and old-fashioned to my ear. 'partner' is the much more widespread term these days, along with 'girlfriend' and 'boyfriend'.

Neither sounds more loving to me. They are just examples of a different style of speaking that depends on how old the speaker is.

Others may have different opinions on this subject.
