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!

Being Far Away From My Boyfriend Actually Strengthened Our Relationship Instead Of Forcing It Apart

While we were apart, we became closer.


Before I really start this article, I just want to say that my relationship isn't truly a long distance relationship. We are both college students at the same university eight months out of the year, but the other four months we live quite a distance apart. Even during those four months, we are only about 150 miles from each other as the bird flies, but really about three hours from each other.

Being in a relationship where I'm not able to see my boyfriend every day or even every week has been a real challenge. But it's been a good challenge. It hasn't been a challenge because I've felt unfaithful or fallen out of love with him in any way. It's challenging because I miss him. We both work jobs and our schedules aren't the same and oftentimes we aren't able to talk to each other unless it's early in the morning or late at night. There are times when all I want to do is talk to him and tell him about how my day went and get a big bear hug from him. Unfortunately, I'm not really able to do this.

I firmly believe that being apart from each other for days, weeks, or even months have brought us closer than we could've ever imagined. We knew that this would be difficult, and we knew that there would be bad days, but we decided to power through it. It has made each time that we are able to see each other so much more special and meaningful.

Seeing each other has become more of spending time with each other than just laying around on the couch playing around on our phones. It's become really getting to know each other better and catching up on all the things we had missed. It's become a time for us to simply be in each other's presence and enjoy being able to talk face to face without a phone in the middle of us. We go on more adventurous dates, we take more pictures, and I think we would both easily say that we fall more and more in love with each other after each opportunity we have to spend time together.

Spending time together is no longer a daily activity, but it has become a right to be earned through hard work and several paychecks as travel can become expensive. We no longer take opportunities to see each other for granted, and it has made us grow closer because we aren't able to spend time together often. We look forward to the days when we won't have to worry about being apart but know that this is only a stepping stone in our relationship.

It’s Harder FINDING Someone Who Wants To Be In A Relationship Than Actually Being In One

Oh millennials, we have made a mess of the dating scene...


I got super lucky once.

I wasn't looking for a guy, but I happened to find the exact one who wanted a long relationship. It's always when you least suspect it, isn't it? I'm newly single, but not quite ready to mingle.

Sure, there are plenty of new fish in the sea, but even they aren't sure if they are ready to sink or swim yet.

No, it doesn't have to be hard to have a relationship. I did long-distance on-and-off for four years, but we pushed through it because we cared about the relationship.

People can make it really tough on themselves to find that perfect person. It makes sense, we all want the right person that fits all of our needs and checks all of our boxes. But I think we as a society are a little more flawed than that. We also have needs of our own and those needs can really get in the way of our time together.

Say you find a person you could see yourself really being with. They will be there for your crying sessions, when you fail a test, when a loved one dies. But will they be there to also lift you up in your darkest moments and laugh together at every free moment? It seems a lot to ask of somebody, but in reality, it's just living.

Avril Lavigne was right, "why do you have to go and makes things so complicated?" In the long run, you'll always be upset if you keep up a checklist that no one can master. I'm finding out myself that not everyone is able to fulfill the basic requirements of a fun loving and easygoing boyfriend, but there is hope that one day, someone will.
