Since Valentine’s Day is this month, I’m making the theme of this month’s posts all about love and relationships and Valentine’s Day things. I will also have posts about self care/love for anyone not in a relationship because love can be for yourself just as much as a partner. This first post is going to be dedicated to my significant other and all the things I love about him. I figured it’d be a nice way to kick it off and it’s always nice to remind/ be reminded of what you mean to the people you love not just on Valentine’s Day even though I’m featuring it around Valentine’s Day.
I’ll give a quick back story, I talk more about it on a different post, about my boyfriend and I. We met in April of 2018, I met him in May of 2018 and moved down to Tennessee and in with him in June of 2018. We’ve been together about a year and eight months. It moved really quickly but I have not regretted a second of it.
So now I’m going to take a little bit and gush about this wonderful man in my life.
He’s a very hardworking, driven person. He works so hard everyday to provide for us and I could not be more thankful for that. It’s not just at work either, he works hard at home to fix things when they break, which is normally because of me, I don’t do it intentionally, I’m just a little wrecking ball sometimes. I also love that not only does he fix it but he teaches me how to fix things. He never stops working hard even when he’s tired and may not want to, he gets up everyday and does.
He’s so supportive and loving. I am very emotional and sometime’s I don’t even know why I feel the way I do, but he never tells me I shouldn’t feel a certain way or that I need to get over something. He just supports me and lets me live in my feelings until I can get through it. He of course tries to make me feel better but knows that him just being there and supporting me is all he can do sometimes and it’s really nice to know I don’t need to try and hide my feelings or pretend everything is okay when it doesn’t feel that way.
He’s sensitive. He is definitely a “man’s” man but he is also sensitive and caring and I love that. He expresses his emotions and isn’t afraid to talk to me about not just the everyday little things and the light fluffy things in life but he opens up about deeper things and let’s me in. (This is something that didn’t really happen in my previous relationship and became a really big deal) so the fact that he does open up to me really means a lot. He’s there for me and I like that he feels I’m there for him too, because I am, always.
He is very good looking. Looks aren’t everything but they are certainly a bonus and I find him to be very attractive.
He is really smart. Whenever I have a question or don’t know something, I feel like he knows the answer. There are other times where we will be driving around and pass a building or some random place and he’ll tell me about it. The knowledge he has of what seems to me like everything is amazing. He is just so smart.
He’s super funny. I love laughing and when people have a good sense of humor and I think he is hilarious. I like when people can just goof around and not take themselves too seriously and he is definitely one of those people. He also has a really amazing smile and laugh so I really enjoy when I get to see him do those things, which is pretty frequently.
His existence. There are many things I love about him and I could list them all but that would take a lot of time because I love everything about him. I’m not just saying that because I know he reads this or because I want to make it seem like I have some sort of fairytale romance or anything because of course there are problems sometimes, that’s life but his flaws and imperfections make him, him and I wouldn’t want to change a single thing about him because that’s not how you love someone. You take them all as they are or not at all. I obviously have my flaws and faults too and he accepts me and loves me as I am and I do the same for him.
So on this Valentine’s Day, if you have a partner or just someone special, tell them what you love about them. Remind them how special they are to you. Even if you think they know, or you tell them you love them everyday, still do this. It really means a lot and it’s always nice to know when someone loves you and all the things that make you who you are.
