6. The person you like and why you like them.
(I know, I've been really bad at keeping up with this, haha)

I guess my boyfriend will count as someone I like, although I don't just like the guy. I love him for many reasons, and for no specific reason at all. May sound a little cliche, but I find that statement to be very true. Whenever the question is asked, I can't really give an answer. I just feel giddy and gush about what an amazing person he is and how he makes me feel like I'm walking on clouds. I know, everything I just said normally gets a *barf reaction from me and I hate that it sound so corny but it's true. However, if I really had to list reasons, they would be:

  • He makes me laugh without even really having to try.
  • He takes care of me and looks out for my well-being.
  • He puts me before himself.
  • He cooks for me.
  • He's chivalrous.
  • He offers me the first and last bite of his food.
  • He makes me eat weird food combinations.
  • He feeds me like a mama bird (sometimes, haha).
  • He loves to try new things with me.
  • He's very understanding and supportive of me.
  • He pushes me to strive for things.
  • He gives me courage to go to the deep end of the swimming pool.
  • He's probably as weird as I am. Maybe even weirder.
  • He acts crazy-rambunctious-childlike (just like meeeeeeee).
  • He doesn't really care what other people think.
  • He does things for shock-value.
  • He knows how to hold a conversation.
  • He leaves me funny and cute voicemails.
  • He's the only person that made me want to go "all in". Ever. 

The list would probably go on forever if I had to really sit and focus on all the little details (being the Virgo I am) as to why I feel the way I do for him.

I know it's been a tumultuous one for the first year of our relationship, if you can even count it as being that during that time, and circumstances were not so ideal, but I love him all the same, if not more. He is not perfect (how he was so heartbreakingly beautiful in the beginning, I don't even know how I allowed myself to go through so much for one person) but that's exactly why I love him. He has his faults, things in the past that he's definitely not proud of, but isn't that the same with all of us? And, things have a way of falling into place, and though it cost the both of us some major shit, we're both growing.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I love him for his shortcomings. I love him for his darker side. I love him for his faults. I love his fears. I love the imperfection that is him. I also love him for his talents. I love him for his brighter side. I love him for his zest for life. I love him for his ideals. I love him for his confidence. I love him for everything that is him, everything that makes him who he is.

I have great faith in him and I see a lot of greatness in him. I hope he knows that I'm his number one supporter. I'll be there when he needs me, I'll be there when he doesn't. I will give him space for individual growth if he needs it. A friend, a confidant, a girlfriend--I'll be whatever he needs me to be.

And this is totally unlike me, haha. I'm even debating on whether or not I want to post this, seeing how this girlish expression is definitely way outside the lines of my comfort zone.

Oh man. Here it goessss.
