7 Reasons To Thank Your Boyfriend, Because Let's Be Real, He Deserves It

He really is the best thing to ever happen to me.

I am so lucky to have the most amazing boyfriend in the whole world. He is not only my boyfriend, but he is also my best friend. I am sure I'm not the only one out there who feels this way so here are seven reasons why you should thank your boyfriend!

1. Thank you for taking countless "cute couple photos" with me even when you didn't want to

You can never have too many cute couple pictures! It always takes multiple tries to get the perfect photo, so thank you for putting up with my countless retakes even though you thought the picture was perfect the first time.

2. Thank you for putting up with me when I need to rant or complain

I'm sure my ranting or complaining can sometimes get on your nerves, but you are always right by my side to listen to me no matter what. You always make it known that my feelings are valid and that you will be there to support me through everything.

3. Thank you for showing me what it's like to be in a loving and supportive relationship

You have shown me how a loving relationship should be and I cannot thank you enough for that. I am so lucky to have someone that treats me well and loves me with all of his heart.

4. Thank you for loving all of my weird quirks and flaws

No matter how weird or unusual my actions are, you somehow find them cute. You always make me feel loved for being myself and I never have to hide any part of me from you.

5. Thank you for always putting in the effort

From a simple "good morning" text to bringing me flowers, you never fail to show your love for me. I appreciate every act of love you do, no matter how small.

6. Thank you for being my adventure buddy

We can go anywhere together and I will have the time of my life as long as I am with you! We don't even have to leave town because every day with you is a wonderful adventure.

7. Thank you for your endless cuddles

When I've had a rough day your cuddles never fail to make me feel 100 times better. I feel so safe and happy when I am wrapped up in your arms.

8. Thank you for being my best friend

While this may sound cliche, you really are my boyfriend and my best friend. I can talk to you about anything in the entire world and I know I can put all of my trust in you. I am so thankful to have both wonderful relationships with you.

This list could go on and on, but in the end, I hope you know how much I love and appreciate everything you do for me. You have made my life so much better since the day you walked into it. I love you so much!

To The Boyfriend Who Makes It Feel Like Valentine's Day Every Single Day Of The Year

I couldn't ask for better.


If love is in the air and it's all over your Instagram feed, that can only mean one thing: Valentine's Day is approaching.

When it comes to Valentine's Day, people typically try to go over the top and demonstrate how much love they have for someone else through giving gifts. Whether that's flowers, chocolates, or going out to dinner, the gifts are meant to show that it's a special day that's all about the person they love.

That's not the case for me.

Valentine's Day is just another day to me. The love I receive from my boyfriend on a daily basis makes me feel like a queen every day, so nothing will really change once February 14th rolls around.

To him, I just want to say two things: thank you, and I love you.

Growing up, I never thought I would know a love as wholesome as yours. I sure as hell never thought I would deserve it, either, but you've shown me my worth and what real love feels like.

I used to not know my worth. I used to only know love as something that turned toxic and controlling. You changed all of that once you came into my life. You have shown me a healthy love that was trusting and unconditional, and I'll love you forever because of that.

I don't need Valentine's Day to know how much you love me. I don't need flowers, chocolates, or anything material to know that you see the rest of your life by my side. I know all of these things because you consistently show me that they're true on a daily basis.

You show me love in everything you do, whether that's holding the door open for me when we go out to eat, asking me how my day was, or making sure that my mental health is okay. You always greet me with a hug and a kiss, and you make me feel like I'm the most important person in the entire world.

You don't need to demonstrate a grand gesture to prove to me that you love me because I've never once doubted your feelings for me. You always tell me how beautiful I am and all of the things you love about me. I'm so thankful to be so head over heels for someone who cares about me with all of their heart.

I could never ask for someone better than you to be my partner in crime. You know me better than I know myself and I love every fiber of who you are. I know that in everything you do, you have me in your mind and your heart. You've shown me what it means to truly love someone, and for that, I'm so grateful.

Thank you for showing me what I deserve, and thank you for making every day feel like the most romantic holiday on the calendar. I love you.

If You're Grossed Out By PDA, Then Don't Look At Me And My Boyfriend Kissing, Easy As That

Building my relationship and showing my boyfriend how much I love him will always be more important than catering to someone's bitterness.


Whenever I see two people kiss, I always smile to myself briefly before looking away. That may sound weird, but honestly, there's something really heartwarming about knowing that other people are happy and in love. In a world that all too often seems full of hatred, heartbreak, and suffering, I try to value little moments of love. I've always felt this way, regardless of whether I was moody or happy, single or cuffed, and having a good or bad day. But apparently, other people, as I've recently found out, don't feel the same way.

"Do you two ever brush your teeth?"

"Are you picking bugs off of each other?"

*Other various glares and audibly annoyed sounds*

Talk about a mood killer, right?

I'll never get what possesses people to say stuff like that when there's a simple solution to this problem.

Don't like it? Don't look.

No one is forcing you to watch us be affectionate with each other. You can easily turn around, check the notifications on your phone, or talk to whoever you're with instead.

I've kissed my boyfriend in LOADS of places: restaurants, bus stops, school buildings, carnivals, parks, beaches, cars, apartments, social gatherings, and so on... And I can promise you that even when you act disgusted by what we're doing or make a nasty comment about us, we're not going to stop. So there's really no point in wasting your breath or expending energy on overdramatic facial expressions.

Even if just for a brief moment, try to think about why a couple might be showing affection for each other in public. (News flash: They're not doing it to deliberately make you comfortable.) It's more than likely that these two people are making the most of a moment.

They're happy and in love. There's nothing wrong with that.

On the flip side, why are you making such a big deal out of something that doesn't involve you whatsoever? My guess is that you're either unbearably lonely, jealous because your own relationship isn't suiting your needs, or just generally coldhearted. If any of those scenarios are true, I wouldn't be surprised. You chose to be hateful and rude over being civil and staying out of matters that don't personally involve you.

Regardless of the circumstance, it's a you problem that you need to work out on your own time.

Just like communication and effort, affection is an important part of a relationship. I want my boyfriend to know that regardless of where we are or who is around us, I will never be embarrassed or reluctant to kiss him or touch him. His feelings guide my behavior. He's my #1 priority. Building my relationship and showing my boyfriend how much I love him will always be more important than catering to someone's bitterness.

You can't avoid being around happy couples in public (really, we're everywhere), but you can change your reaction to them. And that's that.
