A Thank You Letter to My Boyfriend

A Thank You Letter to My Boyfriend

For all the things I can never seem to say...

To My Wonderful Boyfriend,

There are so many things I want to tell you that I can never seem to put into words. Each day there is something new I begin to admire or love about you even more than the last. The amount of pride, admiration, trust, and love I have for you never ceases to amaze me. I know I do a terrible job at showing that sometimes so this is for the days that I can't put into words what you mean to me and for the days that you just need a little reminder you're doing an amazing job.

Thank you for Chick-fil-A dates...

You always seem to know when I need an 8-count meal to fix my hanger or when a cookies and cream milkshake is needed to fix a crappy week. This makes both my heart and tummy happy and it's greatly appreciated.

Thank you for pushing me out of my comfort zone...

Before I met you I never would have willingly dressed head-to-toe in camouflage, sat in a deer stand, fished, or been silent for three hours while turkey hunting. Even though I made you think I hated doing every single one of those things, I actually loved it. I now have a new respect for nature because I did all of these things with you. Whether that be the breathtaking sunset I witnessed in the deer stand or the beauty of hearing trees rustle through the wind while silently sitting in turkey blind. These are things I know cherish because of you.

Thank you for dressing up...

You practically live in worn out blue jeans, t-shirts, and boots (I have grown to love this about you) but when you don't wear them I know it's a special occasion. Anytime we do something new, fun, or exciting I always notice that you wear something besides boots. This simple gesture means so much to me because I know that you view almost everything we do together as something special. So thank you for stepping out of your comfort zone and making every day with me a new adventure.

Thank you for having such a wonderful family...

Ever since the day I met them each one of your family members have made me feel so welcomed, loved, and apart of your family. I secretly love when your mom hugs me first sometimes, that your dad is just as sarcastic as I am about everything, and that your sister always seems to agree with me. More importantly than that though I love the way you love them. The respect you have while talking about them is so special to me. It is such a sincere and honest kind of love that you have for them and it is so beautiful to witness.

Thank you for making me relax...

Whether it's a weekend trip to come see you at school or a weekend at your parents house, you always make me feel so relaxed when I'm with you.We could do nothing but watch movies all day long and I feel one hundred times better just from being with you. It's also nice knowing that there is always a foot rub or back rub to be expected when I see you. You do so many things to make me feel at ease and that is the best feeling in the world.

Thank you for making time for me...

Your free time between school, work, and everything else you are apart of is practically nonexistent. I am honestly amazed that you accomplish everything you do and still make me feel so special. The way you balance everything is so admirable and something I will always look up to you for. I love you so much more because of the way you balance everything and still make me a priority.

Thank you for surprise notes...

Sometimes it's something as simple as a sweet good morning text or the sweet notes you leave me in my room that I find after date nights and sometimes it's the random letters I get in the mail telling me how much you love me. Each one of these make me smile from ear to ear and always turn my day around. In a world where everyone wants a sappy caption on Instagram, it's refreshing to have someone who shows how much they love me in a more personal way.

Thank you for loving me...

Never in a million years did I ever expect someone as wonderful as you to love someone like me. You have wiped away countless tears, made me laugh so hard my stomach hurt, and made me feel like the luckiest girl in the world every single time I needed it. You continue to amaze me everyday with what all you do to make me feel so special. Thank you for accepting my flaws and loving me despite all of them. You have made me a better person and for that I will always be thankful.

I love you more than these words could ever say but I hope this gives you an idea of how thankful for you I truly am.

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.

I’m The Kind Of Person Who Is Happiest When I'm In A Relationship, There Is Nothing Wrong With That

Please stop acting like there is.


There seems to be this odd notion that it's not alright to be the kind of person that prefers being in a relationship to being single. Usually, when I mention to people that I tend to be the happiest when I'm in a relationship, I get met with, "Well. you aren't ready for one yet until you are happiest by yourself" or "That isn't good, you'll always be dependent on someone for happiness then" or even, "Well, if you can't make yourself happy, then you can't make anyone else happy either."

Allow me to clarify a few things here.

First of all, just because I am happiest when I am in a relationship does not mean that I am not happy when I am not in one. I am still capable of being happy outside of a relationship, and I am capable of making myself happy. Generally, on a day to day basis, I'm pretty happy.

The thing is, I'm just in love with love. Even just knowing that there is someone out there that cares so deeply about you that they want to spend a part of their life with you is incredible. To me, there's just no better feeling in the world than having someone that you can share your life with. Sure, coming home from work, making myself my favorite meal and watching some Netflix in bed by myself afterward would be a great way to end a day and would make me happy.

It would make me immeasurably happier, however, to come home from work around the same time as the girl I'm dating does, share stories of how our respective days went while cooking a meal together, and ending the night cuddling in bed watching Netflix together until we fall asleep. Nearly anything I can do by myself that will make me happy can be enhanced by having someone I love with me to share it with.

To counter another point, I am not, nor will I ever be, dependent on someone else to be happy.

As I've mentioned, I'm completely capable of being happy by myself; I'm simply happier when I'm in a relationship. I also tend to be happier than I am normally when I am listening to music and writing. Nobody would ever say that I'm dependent on listening to music and writing or that I shouldn't write a single letter or listen to a single note again until I learn to be even happier without them than I am with them.

I get that some people just like being single and think it's enjoyable. They don't like being tied down or committed to any one person. They like being able to go out and do whatever they want without having to think about anyone at home worrying about them. They don't want to put in the work of having to worry about someone else. I'm not that kind of person. I'll never be that kind of person.

I love being tied down and fully committed to one person, knowing that they are committed to me, as well.

I love having someone that I know cares and worries about me, and that knows I care and worry about them, too. I simply adore being in a relationship, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
