"This is why I love, because you love me". Are you familiar with this line from MAJOR's song "Why I Love You"? I can't help smiling each time I listen to it. It reminds me that everyone needs reassurance from time to time. Even when we are absolutely sure that we're loved, we sometimes just need to hear the reasons why.
No two persons can have exactly the same reasons for loving someone. As such, the list of "reasons why I love you" that I've compiled will simply give you an idea of how to express yours as felt. But, I might as well just be expressing your thoughts just as you would love to.
Actions Over Words?
The saying that actions speak louder than voice has caused many to view words as overrated in love. The truth is actions matter as much as words do. Hence, you need to back up your words with actions just as you need to reinforce your actions with words.
So, it's important that you remind your loved one from time to time how much and why you love him or her.
Below are 50+ reasons why we love those we do.
Why I Love You - Your Person
I love you because you love me unconditionally. Your feelings for me are not based on what I have or can give. I count myself lucky each day because not everyone finds a treasure like you.
I love you because you are forgiving. You get hurt and mad at me from time to time but you are always willing to forgive upon a sincere apology. You don't drag out our issues and you don't know how much relief that brings me.
I love you because you are considerate. You think of me before you make decisions even if it doesn't involve me. You have no idea how much I appreciate the times you chose to get off the phone just because you noticed I was exhausted or sleepy. These little things!
You do your utmost to place my needs above yours. You are self-sacrificing. With you, there's no me-first. You share what you have and never force your opinion on me.
