You once asked me why I love you and I replied: “Because I just do it.”
I never thought about the specific reasons, I know I love you because you make me smile whenever I think of you and because you are the best man I have ever met. But precisely because you are the best, you also deserve a detailed list of the reasons why I love you so infinitely… besides the “Because I just do it”.
When I first saw you, I didn’t know how much you would mean to me one day. I found it much more irritating that our paths constantly seemed to cross. No matter where I turned, you were there.
I hated the way you looked at me like an X-ray vision that I couldn’t hide from.
I hated the way you kept challenging me; made a debate between us out of any subject and seemed to tear my arguments apart. I thought you saw it as a life’s work to make me angry when I didn’t understand why you behaved like this.
Back then, in my wildest dreams, I couldn’t have imagined that I could fall so immortally in love with you. I had always complained to my friends about your cunning way of sucking me into tiresome conversations, about your need to come to me from the other end of the room, where we happened to find each other together, just to make me incandescent.
I laugh when I think back to those moments and how I now love exactly what I initially thought I hated with all my heart.
Because, I love how you don’t mince your words and share your intelligent views with everyone so confidently, but can handle any reaction.
I love our story, from the crazy beginnings to the deep friendship to the moment we met. I love that this story doesn’t seem to end and that a long, beautiful and exciting journey is still waiting for us.
And, oh God, I love the security I feel in your presence, the certainty that you are not playing games with me. I appreciate it more than ever that you showed your true colors from the beginning and that you were more interested in us getting to know each other well.
Before you, I often thought I had found true love, but it always ended up trying to pick up the fragments of my heart. But it was just my imagination, the idea of a love that I imagined in my head. I believed in words and held onto them even when everything else didn’t make sense. I believed that for a man I had to play a certain role in order to be loved. I had so little faith in true love.
Through you I have learned what is truly lovable in a person, what qualities your dream partner should really have and, above all, what true love should feel like. You taught me that in love you have no conditions to fulfill except, to be honest, and to love.
I’ve been looking for the wrong thing for so long while the real treasure was right in front of my nose. Only when I began to give up the search did my view become clearer – finally, there is my soul treasure.
Since I’ve known that, you have taken me lovingly in your arms and have not let go of me since. Now is the time to give you at least 160 reasons why I love you so immortally.
The reasons why I love you:
1. I love your eyes that look so deep inside me and seem to tell me that they like what they see. And I love to lose myself in them and immerse myself, and to forget everything around me.
