Reasons Why I Love You

You always ask me why I love you so, as I'm thinking of you and driving away, I thought I'd make you a (partial) list.
  1. 1.
    You make me smile
    When tears run down my cheeks and my throat is raw from yelling, you somehow drag the corners of my mouth up toward my eyes into a beautiful smile.
  2. 2.
    I learn from you
    I masquerade as a know-it-all, but you teach me more in a single day than I would ever learn in a lifetime without you.
  3. 3.
    You don't like Oreos
    They're my favorite and I know you won't eat them when they're in our house. Honestly, that's so important.
  4. 4.
    You're patient with me
    You may not have patience, but you do with me. When I'm stubborn and careless and ignorant you are patient, loving and open minded.
  5. 5.
    You dream big
    I'm too much of a realist, but you make me want to chase my big dreams into an abyss until I've caught them.
  6. 6.
    You make me laugh
    You ask all the time why I think you're funny so I suppose this deserves a list of its own, but the simple answer is that you just are.
  7. 7.
    You better me
    You can tell me I'm perfect as much as you want, but you make me want to be perfect and I've become a much better person since I've been with you.
  8. 8.
    You're cute.
    I don't care if it's superficial, you're cute and I love it.
  9. 9.
    I believe you
    You once asked why I didn't believe you when you told me I was pretty and I told you I was broken. You said you would tell me until I believed you and here we are with me saying thank you instead of shaking my head no.
  10. 10.
    I can trust you
    You have never lied to me and that has made being away for the past year so much easier. I trust you with my life and I never have to worry about what you're thinking.
  11. 11.
    You try new things
    I think we're two different souls sometimes, but you never hesitate to try new things for me. From ice skating to flannels, you would do anything to make me smile and you always do.
  12. 12.
    You're supportive
    If you could, you would be at every single one of my shows and I know it. Every time I play, I think of you and smile because I know you'd love to be there supporting me.
  13. 13.
    You keep me warm
    Quite literally, you keep me warm and never hesitate to give me your jacket when I'm cold. The little things mean the most.
  14. 14.
    You give good hugs
    No matter what I'm feeling, your hugs make the world stop spinning.
  15. 15.
    You let me drag you along
    I know I've dragged you to plenty of shows you didn't particularly want to see, but they're always so much fun in the end and that makes me happy.
  16. 16.
    You listen
    I expected you to yell at me, but instead you listened. You opened your ears, your heart, and your mind and I was simply amazed
  17. 17.
    You open my mind
    My mom says relationships are supposed to broaden your horizons and boy do you do that for me. Where there once was a narrow alley, you've built a canyon of vast expeirences.
  18. 18.
    You're artistic
    Music is my passion and film is yours, but ultimately they both fall into the art category. It's something beuatiful we share together.
  19. 19.
    I can pick on you
    Even though you can be sensitive, you can also take a joke. If you didn't have thick skin there's no way this would work, I'm just too sarcastic.
  20. 20.
    You try
    I may be confusing and you may not always know what I want, but you always try your best to understand me and be the best you can be for me.
  21. 21.
    Face kisses
    Everyone loves a good kiss on the cheek, but I especially love when I get one on each cheek, my forehead, my nose, my chin, and my lips to seal the deal.
  22. 22.
    Goodnight texts
    For as long as we've been together it seems silly to wait up for your goodnight texts, but they put a smile on my facee before bed, just like the good morning ones do when I wake up.
  23. 23.
    You're poetic
    Sometimes you say things that seem like they were taken right out of a fairytale and I love to brag about that and you.
  24. 24.
    You value my opinion
    Even when I hate something that you love, you listen and appreciate what I have to say about it and then you tell me your side.
  25. 25.
    You make me feel safe
    Whether we're walking around the city or there's a creepy old guy following me, all you have to do is hold my hand and I feel safer. Hell, sometimes you even protect me from nightmares with just a text or phone call.
  26. 26.
    You blend with my family
    Family is so important and mine is so big, but somehow you mesh with them all so well, even if there are occasional disputes.
  27. 27.
    I'm a princess around you
    From holding the door to carrying me around, you treat me so much better than I could have wished and nothing makes me happier than when you call me princess.
  28. 28.
    You're smart
    I may not know everything and neither do you, but together we know a lot of stuff and you fill in the blanks of my curiosity.
  29. 29.
    You get rid of the scary bugs
    When giant spiders and ugly bugs happen to crawl into my life you don't hesitate to get rid of them for me.
  30. 30.
    You're always interesting
    Being around you is always execiting and new with your different quips and facts floating around us.
