How I love thee, let me count the ways… A lot of us have heard the famous beginning to Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Sonnet 43, but have we ever taken the time to count the ways we love the person we’re with? Showing someone how much we care about them is an important part of a relationship and, even though it may seem silly, explaining the reasons why we love them can be just as important.

None of us like to admit it, but in our relationships we all need some reassurance now and then. If you’re thinking of giving the important person in your life some “reasons why I love you” here are some fun examples to spark your creativity.

Share these reasons with the one you love, or even write your own list dedicated to your partner for a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary.
