Why do you love your partner?

My boyfriend and I were having a discussion last night, and I asked him why he loved me, and he honestly couldn't tell me specific things, just that he 'fell in love with the package deal'. I was kind of disappointed – I really wanted to know why he thought I was special enough to give his heart to. I gave him a few ideas on what people typically fall in love with in other people – their personality, how they deal with problems, how they carry themselves, their actions, their intellect, their ambitions, their generosity, their kindness, etc. etc. etc., and I got a few vague mentions of specifics, but that it's basically just 'me as a whole'. So what about you? Why did you fall in love with your partner? Why do you still love them? Were there specific moments that helped it happen?

seriously, i can't tell why i love him... there's no reason why i love him... i just love him despite his flaws and imperfections.... i guess when you love, you don't have an exact reason.. you just love the person unconditionally...

I can understand the disappointment. Some men just aren't good at articulating those kind of feelings. My husband is pretty good at that from talking about the way my hair smells (one night I was away and he curled up with my pillow as it had some of that same smell), to just letting him be himself. He doesn't let a day go past without saying how much he loves me or that I am special. I met my husband on the internet in a trivia chat room. He says he fell in love with my personality straight away. We were good friends for a while, and, although we actually met, it wasn't until continuing a long distance relationship that I realised how much having him in my life meant.

I love my girlfriends because she is just so perfect for me. She is full complete package. Her looks, the way she dressed, the way she talks to me, the way she laugh with me. Just so perfect. We also share the same interest. I love her so much.

i seriously can't explain why i love my boyfriend. I don't know, some people says its really love when you can't explain why you love the person, whether its his best or worse. All i know is i love him and i care for him. I fell in love with him without knowing him at all. But when i get to know him more, how responsible, sweet and kind he is, it made me love him even more. You know i think you should be happy with what he told you. its because he love you without any reasons at all. He loves you, the whole you, and you should be proud of it.

I don't any one can reply this question. We only know that we love someone, but cannot say why we loves..?

I love him for whatever he might be. I admit he is so different that he hurts me more than what my xs had done but still i stay and hold on. Maybe i just love the person he is.
