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

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

No relationship is all sunshine and rainbows.


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


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


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

4. Playing on his phone EVERYWHERE


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


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


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


"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


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


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


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


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


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

6. He's funny


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

7. He suffers for me


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

8. He's very family-oriented


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


Even on my bad days.

10. He's my other half

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.

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.

Both Guys And Girls Have It Hard Finding Love, Stop Complaining

Nothing is easy, so stop throwing your own pity party.


Love is in the air, and so is complaining. Gosh, sometimes being around young adults is exhausting. Basically, all you do is complain about money, or how you are still single/bashing your s/o. When I'm around either my fellow single ladies (or men) the same sort of concept always comes up. "[Insert gender here] have it so easy". Um...sorry bro, that's not the case.

From a girl's point of view, yeah, we may have it easy because we can doll ourselves up with makeup, and flaunt our physical features. But that doesn't mean we have men running toward us left and right. Some guys are jerks and don't know how to treat women. Some guys just want girls for sex, or for their body in general. Do we want that? Yes and no, but when it comes to settling down, that's the tricky part.

From a guy's point of view (now I am clearly not a guy, but this is just an estimate of what I have gathered from then) they have no makeup which already puts girls at an advantage. Girls just wanting to "hit and run", or wanting to sleep around a bit/be free and not committed while you want something more, psycho ex-girlfriends, and her friends. The list could go on, and it gets more complicated as it goes.

As you can probably see by now, guys and girls don't have it easy. The struggles are different, but all are pretty valid in my opinion. Though this article is like a rant, I hope that you know to think twice about saying "who has it better" because in reality, (love related or not) no one has it easy, and the life that others display has a lot more behind it than meets the eye.
