This is my “100 Reasons I love you” list, written 100 days into dating Ben. There are reasons to write your own and tips on getting started!
Times to write your own “100 Reasons I Love You” list:
For an anniversary
Commemorate a memorable anniversary, whether it’s one year of dating, ten years of marriage, or six months together – Maybe one year from the first “I love you.” It will be neat to look back on a list and remember that period by what you loved about your significant other. It’ll be even more fun to see how the list changes as you go from one years to ten.
For a Birthday
Nothing is quite the ego boost as 100 reasons why you’re loved. Make your #1 feel extra special this birthday with a list detailing every reason they’re worth celebrating.
For a holiday
Valentines Day would be a classic but you could also come up with the most thoughtful Christmas or Father’s Day gift! Just pair this with a favorite gift
Writing 100 reasons all at once might seem daunting. So instead, what if you wrote the lists together, one a day and you’ll have your list in a few months. Or maybe you text each other one reason each week and it takes you a few years. Either way, how fun would it be to have the list with the varying dates by them?
Ideas for your “100 Reasons I Love You” List:
- Habits he has that you love.
- Things you love doing together.
- Things he likes.
- Things you love about the way he looks.
