We’ve all heard definitions of love passed down through generations. Each of us has a peculiar love story to tell. Some of us have witnessed love, while others have been in love. But no one ever seems to question love because we know it is simply something that exists. Love is a powerful feeling that is intricate to the mind frame of man. It is so simple yet complex.

Philosophers over the years have even described love as madness; others have called it the greatest gift to humanity. Love does not have a universal definition, the same way everyone has distinct reasons for loving someone. 

However, one thing that stands out amongst the illustrations of love by these different philosophers is that to be in love is to adopt a certain degree of madness. Love is perhaps the only socially acceptable form of madness.

We find ourselves doing things we usually wouldn’t do when we’re in love. It makes us see things and life in general from a different perspective. When immediately put on the spot and asked why you love your partner, your mind could go blank as you were caught off guard. However, this does not mean that you do not love them.

You just need a reminder of why you love them.  You’ve blurted out “I love You” so many times that it has become a mantra. You say it without a second thought. But have you ever noticed how it takes you a while to come up with reasons why you love someone? Is it because of their smile? Their energy? Their aura? You’re not alone. Most times, we get so sucked up in the endless “I love you” cycles that we actually forget why we fell in love. Luckily, there are countless reasons to love someone. Here are 70 of them!

It’s certainly a great idea to let your partner know how you feel about them and why you love them, regardless of how far you’ve come in the relationship. These reasons work both ways as they are affirmations for you and your partner. Your reasons would push you to keep loving your partner, and your partner would be pushed to be better for you, so you don’t ever run out of reasons.  And if you don’t have a reason but still love your partner, it’s not an issue.

Some relationships that are built on reasons collapse because those reasons expired. Love does not necessarily need a reason or explanation. To each their own; love is whatever you make it to be. As long as you feel loved, give love, and nobody’s getting hurt, you don’t need a thousand and one reasons.
