20 Things to Thank Your Boyfriend For

20 Things to Thank Your Boyfriend For

Love, girlfriends everywhere.

Good boyfriends deal with a lot from their girlfriends, and it's so easy to get so comfortable with our boyfriends that we often forget to thank them for all they do for us. So thank you...

1. For dealing with my mood swings...

Us girls, we get mad over literally anything. Throw in mood swings and PMS'ing... yeah, all I can say is I'm sorry.

2. ... And my hanger.

Thanks for understanding that I need to be fed every 5-6 hours, or the beast will come out. (I'm sorry for what I said when I was hungry.)

3. For always letting me eat your fries.

Even when I said I wasn't hungry.

4. For not getting mad when I can't make a decision.

AKA, I say "I don't care," but I say no to every restaurant you suggest.

5. For telling me that I am beautiful, even when I don't believe you.

Even if I think I look awful, you always tell me that I am beautiful. Thank you for taking the time each and every day to tell me that I am beautiful. It really means the world.

6. For giving me all of the attention.

I'm aware that I am needy, and you are also aware of this, so thank you for always giving me the attention that I need, and never complaining once about it.

7. For tirelessly easing my jealous nature.

Even though I know I have no reason at all to be jealous, I'm insecure- so sue me! Thank you for always debunking my insecurities and assuring me that I am the apple of your eye.

8. And for letting me be nosy.

It's out of love, I swear. Thank you for not changing your phone passcode when I saw you type it in and I remembered it on the second try. I don't feel the need to snoop, but even if I did, I know you have nothing to hide. Thank you for assuring me of that and proving to me that you really don't have anything to hide.

9. For spoiling me.

Not only do you spoil me with your time, attention, and affection, you are also fair in that you stick to our deal of paying for our meals every other meal out. So thank you for all those times you bought me dinner, even when I tried to pay for myself. Thank you for being a gentleman and doing the little things, like buying my ticket to the play without a second thought. Your generosity is appreciated, and reciprocated as much as I can.

10. For always leaving the toilet seat up.

And if you're wondering if there will ever be a time when this doesn't piss me off, the answer is no. At this point, I just accept that you are never going to change on this, and I don't really expect anything less.

11. For listening to me complain about my problems.

Sometimes a girl just needs a venting session about problems at work, with friends, family, or whatever else may be bothering her. So thanks for letting me rant about whatever is bothering me that day... even if you're not really listening.

12. For cuddling me.

No matter what time of day or condition, my cuddle demand is always met.

13. For taking selfies with me.

Even though you hate pictures, you know it makes me happy to take pictures with you. Thank you for the serious pictures together, and the funny ones, because we all know how different Instagram and Snapchat couple photos are.

14. For playing with my hair.

My happy place is laying with my head on your chest while you play with my hair. It's just so relaxing and calming, especially after a long day.

15. For carrying in the groceries.

Even when I insist I can do it. Your help is greatly appreciated, especially when you carry them all in in only one trip!

16. For scratching my back in the spots I can't reach.

Right... left... other left... higher... lower... a little to the right more...

17. For watching my favorite movies with me.

I watch your superhero movies that I couldn't care less about, and you return the favor by watching my favorite chick flicks with me (even if you're on your phone most of the time) and holding me when I cry at the end.

18. For not getting mad when I hog the bed...

And all the blankets. Sorry for all the nights you froze because you couldn't pull the blankets out of my grasp.

19. For getting used to my snoring.

I'm sorry, I can't help it, okay?

20. For making me happy.

No matter how bad of a day I had, or how sick I may be, you are the one who effortlessly cheers me up, not only with your presence, but you are always at the ready with a funny comment or an old inside joke or funny memory to crack me up. No matter what, being with you always improves my mood. Seeing you happy makes me happy, and I couldn't ask for anything better than being with you.

An Open Letter To My Boyfriend's Mom

A simple thank you is not enough.

Your son and I have been dating a while now and I just wanted to thank you for everything.

Wow, where do I start? Ever since the day your son brought me into your home you have shown me nothing but kindness. I have not one negative thought about you and I am truly thankful for that. I first and foremost want to thank you for welcoming me with open arms. There are horror stories of mothers resenting their son's girlfriends and I am blessed there is no resentment or harsh feelings.

Thank you for treating me like one of your children, with so much love but knowing exactly when to tease me.

Thank you for sticking up for me when your son teases me, even though I know it’s all in good fun it's always comforting knowing you have someone by your side.

Thank you for raising a man who respects women and knows how to take responsibility of mistakes and not a boy who is immature and doesn’t take responsibility.

Thank you for always including me in family affairs, I may not be blood family but you do everything you can to make sure I feel like I am.

Thank you for letting me make memories with your family.

There is nothing I value more in this world then memories with friends and family and I am thankful you want and are willing to include me in yours. I have so much to thank you for my thoughts keep running together.

The most important thing I have to thank you for is for trusting me with your son. I know how precious and valuable he is and I won't break his heart. I will do everything I can to make him happy. This means more than you could ever imagine and I promise I will never break your trust.

The second most important thing I must thank you for is for accepting me for who I am. Never have you ever wished I looked like another girl or acted like another girl. You simply love and care for me and that’s all I could ever ask. Every person in this world is a unique different person and understanding that means a lot.

The third most important thing I must thank you is teaching me how to one day in the future treat a potential girlfriend that I may interact with as a mother. I am not a mother, but I one day plan to be. If I ever have a son it is because of how you treated me that I am able to be a humble loving mother to this new face that could one day walk into my door. How you have treated me has taught me how I should one day be in the future and I thank you for that.

This may seem all over the place but that’s how my brain gets when I try and thank you for everything you have done for me. It’s all so much and even the little things are so important so I promise my scattered thoughts are all with good intentions and not meant to bombard you. I just want to get the idea across to you that you are important and special to me and everything you do does not go unnoticed.

5 Outdated Taboos That Are Fundamentally Crippling To Your Dating Life

Why are there so many "rules" and why are we still following them?


It used to be taboo to date interracially. It used to be taboo for women to show their ankles. Taboos have their purpose but some are just downright stupid. Here are 5 dating taboos everyone needs to stop adhering to.

1. Guys Should Make The First Move

Walking up and talking to someone you find attractive is just as hard for guys as it is for girls. If your someone you want to get your flirt on with, go for it. A lot of guys appreciate the confidence it takes for a girl to approach them so, go on and strut your stuff. The worst he can say is, "No."

2. You Shouldn’t Date Right After A Breakup

Obviously, you should give yourself at least a few weeks after a breakup before jumping right back on the market but, are you supposed to just give up your opportunities because your breakup was recent? If you're ready, get back out there. They don't call it The Rebound for no reason. Plus, dating someone new could be just what you need to move on from your ex.

3. Keep The Conversation Neutral on A First Date

You can only have a surface conversation for so long. The whole purpose of a date is to get to know the other person. Don't waste time beating around the bush. You should talk about things like religion and politics because for many these topics can be complete deal breakers. Better to find out early on rather than later.

4. Girls Shouldn’t Text First

If you want to text him, then just text him. Don't sit around waiting to hear from him, jumping at every sound your phone makes. If a guy minds getting a text from a girl first that's his problem and you're better off without him.

5. Guys Should Always Pay

To offer is the right thing to do of course, especially on a first date but, there's no harm in splitting the bill. If it's the second, third or fourth date, you should absolutely split the bill. You're dating the guy, not trying to dry out his wallet.

We're making dating so much more difficult than it has to be by following these rules. Let's all stop wasting our time and just get to know each other without worrying so much about doing what we're supposed to.
