I Like My Boyfriend For 10 Reasons But I Love Him Despite These 8 Things
Lexi Schroeder

My boyfriend and I have been official for 9 months now. We've known each other a little bit more than a year and have been on a constant adventure since. Being with someone for almost a year, you pretty much get to know them from head to toe. I know things from his favorite color to what hair products he uses, and he knows things from my favorite shows to when I'll be hungry again (which is pretty much every hour so it's not that hard). You could say we know each other darn good then. He's a great guy but every boyfriend comes with consequences... so here are 10 reasons I like my boyfriend, and of course I do love him, despite 8 things he does that ruffles my feathers...

I love my boyfriend, regardless of...

1. Not listening at all

I literally just talked for 2 minutes straight about something that happened to me today and I always get the famous, "what?" from him.

2. Farting with no shame

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2FxUA7aWbQcnW3SLxmjC.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fi.giphy.com&s=793&h=8be19a8acaac78cd3d6edfea9d13a8fa46ecfa45deacc994cd2d8636161a2011&size=980x&c=3163281574 image-library="0" pin_description="" caption="" crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252FxUA7aWbQcnW3SLxmjC.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fi.giphy.com%26s%3D793%26h%3D8be19a8acaac78cd3d6edfea9d13a8fa46ecfa45deacc994cd2d8636161a2011%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3163281574%22%7D" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

Giphy

He can let it all out whenever he wants, but as soon as I do something along those lines he says he wants a "normal" girlfriend who doesn't do anything gross. Sorry hunny, but this is normal.

3. Sticking his feet in my face

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2FxvGEx3cazysda.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fi.giphy.com&s=119&h=68fa74c213e2621fa90983905fa413e3aacaa2c3745100ea28d480dd82ab86a9&size=980x&c=1687386772 image-library="0" pin_description="" caption="" crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252FxvGEx3cazysda.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fi.giphy.com%26s%3D119%26h%3D68fa74c213e2621fa90983905fa413e3aacaa2c3745100ea28d480dd82ab86a9%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1687386772%22%7D" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

Giphy

He knows I hate feet. So, of course, he HAS to put them in my face.

4. Playing on his phone EVERYWHERE

Imgur

Hello? We're watching a movie... and he's clearly not watching! But playing his new addiction... Battle Cats.

5. His way of making plans

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2F9G3wg7lH5DpxC.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fi.giphy.com&s=275&h=461871456e2e19114dc3eaa3f340119ae126481bde819e297ef4b8a000b63b59&size=980x&c=779451012 image-library="0" pin_description="" caption="" crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252F9G3wg7lH5DpxC.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fi.giphy.com%26s%3D275%26h%3D461871456e2e19114dc3eaa3f340119ae126481bde819e297ef4b8a000b63b59%26size%3D980x%26c%3D779451012%22%7D" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

Giphy

Me: Hey, let's hang out on Friday!

Him: That's 2 days away, I don't even know what I'm doing!

Me: Hey, want to hang out tonight?

Him: You should've asked me sooner, I'm with my friends tonight!

I can never win.

6. Always being late

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2FaTqhkMQLbV2c8.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fi.giphy.com&s=1007&h=4d22f81dd20a532fccb26ec549ca55ffe9922fefcd04ace59eee18b490d388ba&size=980x&c=2590683881 image-library="0" pin_description="" caption="" crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252FaTqhkMQLbV2c8.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fi.giphy.com%26s%3D1007%26h%3D4d22f81dd20a532fccb26ec549ca55ffe9922fefcd04ace59eee18b490d388ba%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2590683881%22%7D" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

Giphy

This one should've been number one. And when I say always, I mean ALWAYS.

7. Insists he doesn't want anything... but really does

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2FSasDDqOSRclNu.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fi.giphy.com&s=47&h=4c99ae700c6b41988fe248acabc6a1ef50dfe24734f8d1c57cdcdde8ca2c960b&size=980x&c=1539609910 image-library="0" pin_description="" caption="" crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252FSasDDqOSRclNu.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fi.giphy.com%26s%3D47%26h%3D4c99ae700c6b41988fe248acabc6a1ef50dfe24734f8d1c57cdcdde8ca2c960b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1539609910%22%7D" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

Giphy

"Are you sure you don't want anything? I'm just going to get a small fry then." And then continues to pick at my food and eat more of it than I do.

8. Burping. Then blowing it at me

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Fv0KdtqThuSAM0.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fi.giphy.com&s=849&h=e202a1b75e44b63a597343862cb80c38a6a8c96b4b421ec168f03ef6ff2ba602&size=980x&c=3961376478 image-library="0" pin_description="" caption="" crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Fv0KdtqThuSAM0.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fi.giphy.com%26s%3D849%26h%3De202a1b75e44b63a597343862cb80c38a6a8c96b4b421ec168f03ef6ff2ba602%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3961376478%22%7D" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

Giphy

He's really been doing this since the beginning. Whenever he burps, he always blows it at me. How romantic.

I'm sure every girl that has a boyfriend like me can relate or totally agree that our boyfriends can be pretty annoying at times. But that's what makes them, them! Despite all those, I have really fallen for him. Here's why he's really the MVP of all boyfriends.

1. Always making me laugh/smile

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2FyxCjIVG4USJkA.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fi.giphy.com&s=382&h=1b2077be3e4882332c556900a009f64a2608564dcace74759776302e82cb1a04&size=980x&c=2845476625 image-library="0" pin_description="" caption="" crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252FyxCjIVG4USJkA.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fi.giphy.com%26s%3D382%26h%3D1b2077be3e4882332c556900a009f64a2608564dcace74759776302e82cb1a04%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2845476625%22%7D" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

Giphy

Whenever I'm sad or feeling down, he always knows how to crack a smile or a laugh out of me and instantly make me feel better.

2. Spoiling me

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2FaQYR1p8saOQla.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fi.giphy.com&s=936&h=a416c21bf5aa9c2b11b578ba474126769a02a88d72c3071134cd21d7fbc09c6c&size=980x&c=3481897789 image-library="0" pin_description="" caption="" crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252FaQYR1p8saOQla.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fi.giphy.com%26s%3D936%26h%3Da416c21bf5aa9c2b11b578ba474126769a02a88d72c3071134cd21d7fbc09c6c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3481897789%22%7D" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

Giphy

Whether it's taking me on a cute date, or bringing me some candy, things like that always make me feel special and happy.

3. He's freaking cute

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2FQ7YFxgjPvzczu.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fi.giphy.com&s=191&h=c59712944c61f2c8f63aed58f249d80ddd72fa2e91867cafa31f18d6bf15db14&size=980x&c=2884531186 image-library="0" pin_description="" caption="" crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252FQ7YFxgjPvzczu.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fi.giphy.com%26s%3D191%26h%3Dc59712944c61f2c8f63aed58f249d80ddd72fa2e91867cafa31f18d6bf15db14%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2884531186%22%7D" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

Giphy

From his super pretty eyes to his flawless smile, everything about him is perfect in my opinion! Fun fact: he did win best smile for his senior class back in 2016.

4. He makes me feel loved

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2F3oFzmlb4dY38IMVH4A.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fi.giphy.com&s=1011&h=11d81250e67fb5feafea414e02336df1e7389ae73f19fc78487e780e50f0d8df&size=980x&c=2799084968 image-library="0" pin_description="" caption="" crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252F3oFzmlb4dY38IMVH4A.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fi.giphy.com%26s%3D1011%26h%3D11d81250e67fb5feafea414e02336df1e7389ae73f19fc78487e780e50f0d8df%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2799084968%22%7D" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

Giphy

From cuddling in bed while watching TV to his goodbye hugs, he's always making me feel cherished.

6. He's funny

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2FwWue0rCDOphOE.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fi.giphy.com&s=437&h=76f1ade59d68c3bde927abbb4f645e8f577434f9450b882e7a33f4d0ab3adea3&size=980x&c=1263236717 image-library="0" pin_description="" caption="" crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252FwWue0rCDOphOE.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fi.giphy.com%26s%3D437%26h%3D76f1ade59d68c3bde927abbb4f645e8f577434f9450b882e7a33f4d0ab3adea3%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1263236717%22%7D" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

Giphy

And by funny, I mean hilarious. He definitely has the best sense of humor I've ever encountered.

7. He suffers for me

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2FxTiTngHGyb6C8qMkta.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fi.giphy.com&s=222&h=a057d5fb078bb1eabed3617275fe2ed63be5c95ef2a47af4be371fe702226326&size=980x&c=3120197818 image-library="0" pin_description="" caption="" crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252FxTiTngHGyb6C8qMkta.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fi.giphy.com%26s%3D222%26h%3Da057d5fb078bb1eabed3617275fe2ed63be5c95ef2a47af4be371fe702226326%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3120197818%22%7D" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

Giphy

Especially when I have AUX and constantly play "The 1975" over and over again.

8. He's very family-oriented

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2F3o7TKq7R3PFsUXu7DO.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fi.giphy.com&s=273&h=69388ed9dc8c761698dda4e3f9b87644b60e8d9d7c72ebe2592525a2f054eda6&size=980x&c=2993914754 image-library="0" pin_description="" caption="" crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252F3o7TKq7R3PFsUXu7DO.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fi.giphy.com%26s%3D273%26h%3D69388ed9dc8c761698dda4e3f9b87644b60e8d9d7c72ebe2592525a2f054eda6%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2993914754%22%7D" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

Giphy

I truly love that about anyone, especially my significant other. His family is always his first priority, which shows signs of compassion, respect, and kindness.

9. Compliments me, not only on my looks

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Fl2SqbC7pccSs2qxBS.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fi.giphy.com&s=440&h=9649defb77435ccda8b219060aefddb4055c9d19b123078e2054946b1b970f4f&size=980x&c=4141922026 image-library="0" pin_description="" caption="" crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Fl2SqbC7pccSs2qxBS.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fi.giphy.com%26s%3D440%26h%3D9649defb77435ccda8b219060aefddb4055c9d19b123078e2054946b1b970f4f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4141922026%22%7D" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

Giphy

Even on my bad days.

10. He's my other half

Lexi Schroeder

He truly is. No one quite gets me like he does. I'm a very lucky girl to be with someone so great but irritating sometimes (kidding!). I highly recommend being with someone who you can also call your best friend.

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

6942
Pixar

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
