Loving someone is one of the most incredible experiences that this life has to offer. If you’ve ever been in love, you’ll know what I’m talking about. But sometimes it can be tough to put those feelings into words. But finding the way to tell someone how you feel is a great way to strengthen your bond, and can help create a happier and healthier relationship. So regardless of how long you’ve been with your partner, you should be expressing your love to each other.
If you’re having a hard time finding the right words, then we’ve put together a few of the key reasons to love someone to help inspire your own sentiments. Share these with your partner anytime you want them to know just how much they’re loved.
I love you because I can be myself around you.
There are probably people you see every day—family, friends, colleagues—with whom you feel like you have to behave a certain way, or take on a particular role that isn’t completely who you are. But if you’re with the right person, your partner is the one person you can be happy, moody, quiet, or silly with, depending on the kind of mood you’re in.
This is the way it should be. You should feel totally comfortable with each other, relaxed, and at ease. So let them know you love that you’re able to be this way with each other.
I love you because I can always talk to you.
Being able to say whatever’s on your mind, have serious conversations, and blurt out random thoughts is one of the best things about being in a relationship. It doesn’t matter if it’s important or not, or even if it makes total sense; it’s the fact that you’re able to let everything out.
Most people wouldn’t put up with this level of no-filter, but your partner does, and even better still, they probably find it endearing. Your partner might not always be fully present during these moments, but they’re still there for you to express all the things you want to. Share how you feel by telling your partner how much you appreciate being able to always talk to them about the big things, and the little things.
I love you because you turn my frowns upside down.
We’re all guilty of getting trapped in a cycle of negative thoughts, where we convince ourselves that the world is about to end; when in reality, our problem is often hardly a problem and can be solved pretty simply.
Our partner is great for adding perspective during these times, helping us to see things from another angle, and often diffuse any frustration, sadness or anger that we’re feeling. Your partner is also often the only person who’s around during your darkest days, and is always there to comfort you and try to make things better. How many people can we truly count on to do that for us?
The next time you have a rough day and they’re there to make you feel better, let them know you love this about them.
I love you because you understand me like nobody else.
Because you spend more time with your partner than anybody else, they get to know you on a very deep and intimate level that nobody else does. Even your parents or siblings might not know you the way your partner does, because they see you from your worst to your best, and every shade in between.
The two of you have to navigate your relationship, constantly communicate, and get to know each other inside and out—and because of this, they grow to understand you in a way nobody else does. Having someone like this in your life is something to be grateful for, and worth sharing your love for.
I love you because you care about me so deeply.
Your partner is directly part of your life, and you are theirs, which means they care a great deal about you in every sense of the word. When you’re not a part of someone’s immediate circle, they’re unlikely to care about you in the same way, even if they are concerned about you and your wellbeing.
You’re a big part of your partner’s life, so they’ll be thinking about you a lot, spending quality time with you, and doing things that make you feel loved and special. How amazing is it going home to someone like that every day? Tell them!
I love you because you’re committed to our relationship.
All relationships require a great deal of time, effort, and commitment from both people in order to thrive. If your partner has stuck around through the good and the bad, then that means they’re willing to do whatever it takes to make your relationship work. Not everyone will be like this. Some people may have given up in the past, but your partner hasn’t.
This isn’t always easy, which is why some people struggle to make relationships work. Being single is much easier, because you don’t have to think or stress about someone else’s feelings.
This alone should be one of the big reasons why you love your partner, and why you should share how you feel with them today.
