We get caught up in saying ‘I love you’ when we leave our partner, greet our partner, or when something really good happens. The words ‘I love you’ can lose their meaning when you are only using them in this way. Letting your partner know why you love them consistently in many different ways can do a lot of powerful things for your relationship.
– It can help them feel appreciated and show appreciation back.
– It can help them feel good about themselves when they are feeling down.
– It can remind them that they are in an awesome relationship and they need to take the time to slow down and appreciate it.
– It can make them feel lucky that you are the one they are in a relationship with and not some jerk who never shows their love.
– They recall your words at times they need to be reminded that they are loved.
There are so many benefits that it is a huge tool for creating a happier and healthier relationship. And, it is one you should definitely be using, no matter how long you have been together.
Not sure what to say? Not big on coming up with words that have a powerful impact on your partner? That’s why this article is here! Following are some ‘reasons why I love you’ that almost everyone will relate to. Alternate between these reasons, so that the words and the meaning stay strong and powerful when you say them to your partner. If you overuse one or two of them, your partner will not feel the value in them as much.
1. I Love You Because You Make Me Feel Good About Myself
Love really does give you wings. It makes you feel more confident, more in control, and stronger than you can feel when you are facing the world alone. When you know that you have a constant cheerleader on your side, you are more capable of going after your dreams and living the life you want.
Moreover, when someone is constantly reminding you of why they love you, it naturally feels good. You are appreciated and wanted, and that is something to feel highly grateful for! So, if they are reminding you of why they love you in any way, then make sure you tell them how much you appreciate them for making you feel good about yourself.
2. I Love You Because You Bring New Awareness To My Life
Everyone in this world is unique and can add new awareness to your life, but many people’s words and actions get drowned out as you move through the day concentrating on what you need to get done. Your partner’s don’t though. What they say and do can help you see things in a completely different light and affect how you act and what you believe.
It’s very interesting how our partner can sway us in all kinds of positive ways just by being themselves. That is definitely something to love about them. And, you should let them know how important they are in your life because of the awareness that they bring.
3. I Love You Because I Can Be Myself Around You
This is one of the top ‘reasons why I love you’ in my opinion. You can’t always be yourself around family or friends, and you definitely have to behave in a certain way around strangers, but around your partner, you can be as grumpy, happy, silly, or weird as you want. You don’t need to ask permission to be comfortable. You just do it. Make sure you let them know how much you appreciate the fact that you can be yourself around them.
4. I Love You Because You Help Me See Negative Things Differently
Your partner should normally be on your side in life, but they can definitely be the voice of reason that helps you get unstuck from negative thoughts and focused on something more positive. Often, during our darkest times, our partners are the only people around, which is why they are so crucial in our lives. We come home, feel horrible, and then they help us feel better about our day and ourselves, and that is something to love about them and being in a relationship.
5. I Love You Because I Can Always Talk To You
When you are in a relationship, you get to say every single thing that is on your mind, whether it is important or not! There is no one else in the world who would put up with constant texts about random things you are thinking or interruptions during their favorite show to let them know something that could probably wait.
Moreover, there is no one else you can admit the crazy things that you are thinking without being judged on a level that could potentially make you look really weird in their eyes. Even if your partner doesn’t always listen in the way you would want them to, at least you have someone that you can express the things that you really want to get out to.
6. I Love You Because You Understand Me
No one will ever understand you like your partner. Not your mother, sister, or best friend. Your partner sees you all the time, watches you during your worst and best behaviors, sees how you react to things, and gets the insider information that no one else will ever get about yourself. They know you well, and because of that, they understand why you do what you do. Having someone who gets you on that type of level is a great feeling and well worth expressing your love for!
7. I Love You Because You Picked Me
Listen, it doesn’t matter how great you are, they didn’t need to pick you. They could have picked someone else or even picked themselves over you. The fact that they chose you to share their life with should be an honor to you. They pretty much said that they were willing to let go of being focused on themselves and start focusing on you too, which is a huge thing for someone to do. You should definitely love them for that.
8. I Love You Because You Make Me Feel Special
People don’t care about you. Well, they may care about you, but you are not a part of their immediate life, so they are more concerned with themselves and the people who are a direct part of their life living in their home.
Your partner, though, cares about you a lot. You are an important part of their life and they think about you often, do things to make you feel good, interact with you, and make you feel important. You are always on their mind and in their thoughts.
Also, they know that you are important in their life so they do and say things that make you feel special. Moreover, having someone to go home to every day makes you feel special. Someone is waiting for you, and that is pretty amazing and worthy of your love!
9. I Love You Because You Are So Sexy!
This should be something you love about your partner and tell them often. In an intimate relationship, being intimate is a huge thing that separates your relationship from other relationships in their lives. But, if they start to feel as though they are not sexy to you, then the relationship can suffer, because we all want to feel like we are sexy to our partners. We all want to feel that someone desires us and craves us and loves the way we look.
Telling your partner that you love them because they have the hottest body or move in a sexy way or turn you on is a great way to make them feel like they are living up to your expectations of intimacy and attractiveness. It reminds them that you find them sexy, despite what anyone else in the world says.
If you are in a relationship with a woman, this is one of the most important things you should list off when you are telling her the reasons why I love you. Women are reminded every day of what society thinks is attractive, and 99% of them don’t live up to those expectations, so being the one person who constantly reminds them that they are attractive despite what society says will make you someone extremely special and valuable in their lives.
10. I Love You Because You Stimulate Me
Yes, in a sexual way, but also in a ‘my life is more exciting because you are in it’ way. A friend of mine writes for a relationship blog, and one of the biggest complaints of single people is that they are bored. They have no one to turn to constantly and have fun with, especially when all of their friends are in relationships.
If you are in a relationship, then you are never bored. There is always someone to think about, someone to talk to, someone to do things with, and even someone to have to conflict with. It makes life more exciting to have someone in it, and you should remind your partner how grateful you are for that.
11. I Love You Because You Are Determined To Make This Relationship Work
Relationships require work. They require patience, understanding, and sometimes even compromise or change. If your partner is still there, then they are doing things to make the relationship work. They are not giving up on you. They are not giving up on having a happy relationship with you. They are not retreating to the world of being single where you don’t need to stress out about what someone else is thinking or doing. They are putting in the effort because of you, and you should definitely list it as one of the ‘reasons why I love you’ to them.
12. I Love You Because Of The Names You Call Me
There was something about the way your parents said your name that made your relationship more personal, but with your partner, it is taken to a whole new level. In relationships, we give each other pet names, and we use different ones depending on our moods, which nobody else does or gets to do with us.
For instance, we may call them ‘hun’ or ‘babe’ when we are feeling loving towards them. We may use their full name when we are angry. We may draw out their name when we are annoyed. We may call them ‘boo boo’ when we are trying to get what we want. There are many different ways we can address our partners, and those names are not something we hear from anyone else, which is endearing and a huge reason to appreciate and love each other.
13. I Love You Because Of Your Laugh
When your partner is not laughing at you, it should be an endearing sound that makes you feel good. Their laughter means that they feel good and helps boost your mood instantly, which is a huge reason to love it. Their laugh may be annoying or unique to other people, but that shouldn’t matter to you. Their laugh is a sign of internal happiness and joy, and it should be something that helps bring you back to the moment and appreciate the person in front of you, especially when you are the person making them feel so great!
14. I Love You Because Of How You Treat Other People
Your relationship with your partner is unique, but watching how they treat other people should make you feel proud to be their partner. How they treat their family, friends, and even strangers can make you feel amazing to be someone who is so closely connected to them. The next time you see your partner doing something compassionate for someone else, make sure you let them know, “This is one of the reasons why I love you.”
15. I Love You Because I Can’t Imagine Life Without You
Make sure to say, at least once a week, “One of the reasons why I love you is because I can’t imagine my life without you.” It will remind you of how important they are in your life and it will remind them of how important you are in their life. It will help promote more positive feelings towards each other. It will make you feel more like a unit as you move through your day. You will look at other people and think, “I’m lucky that I have someone to support and love me each day of my life in this big world.”
