Reason 1. "They call me Sugar Stef"
Before we started dating, you invited me to your 21st birthday party. You were so funny that night… In the middle of you singing and dancing with your friends, you told me (repeatedly) "They call me Sugar Stef!..." They didn't. And that's what made it so funny, and you so cute.
So here we are, two years later, and you actually are Sugar Stef. And that's the 1st reason why I'm madly in love with you.
Reason 2. I don’t always admit it, but you’re hilarious
Yea, you’re funny lol. And everyone knows it, especially me. You make the silliest faces and say ridiculous things.
I can always count on you to make me laugh, and that’s the 2nd reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 3. You’re out of this world beautiful
Your eyes are like Neptune and your hair is like Venus. (I can hear you calling me a nerd right now :)
You’re the most beautiful girl I know, and that’s the only reason why I’m madly in love with you! JK, it’s just the third.
Reason 4. You have the biggest, brightest, prettiest smile
And it’s contagious.
Your smile makes me smile and that’s the fourth reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 5. Kissing you melts my heart
And sends electricity through my body. There’s something about kissing you that’s hard to describe. It’s otherworldly. It’s magic. It’s phenomenal. It wakes me up and transcends me.
You are like Dr. Frankenstein with your kisses and I’m the monster you bring to life with them, and that’s the fifth reason I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 6. We finish each other’s… sandwiches
If I actually owed you a Coke every time we jinxed, I would owe you a lot of Cokes. I think eventually, we won’t even have to use words.
For better or for worse, we can sometimes read each other’s minds, and that’s the sixth reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 7. We cook together, and we’re pretty damn good
Our Chipotle Chicken Quesadilla are top-notch. Our buffalo chicken pasta is straight fire. Our pizza’s were off the charts, and I’ll even admit that yours was better.
A couple that cooks together, eats together, and that’s the 7th reason why I’m madly in love with you. (Not to mention you introduced me to Egg in a hole!)
Reason 8. Laying in bed and watching The Office with you is the best
Jim and Pam have become #Goals, Michael and Holly are an awkward match made in heaven, Dwight and Jim’s rivalry turned bromance is epic.
“I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them.” - Andy “Nard Dog” Bernard
We’ve spent many nights falling asleep to one of best television series ever made and that’s the eighth reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 9. When I’m with you, there’s nothing else
It takes me back to the naive thinking when I was young that I was the center of the galaxy. When we’re together, that’s how I feel.
Because we’ll have many more Grand Geneva’s and Bahama’s in the future, (Excepts they’ll be California’s and Europe’s and Asia’s) and that’s the ninth reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 10. You’re adventurous
I seriously love that we have this in common. We both want to explore the world (and beyond :). For my 25th Birthday, you took me kayaking down the Chicago River and I had so much fun.
You want to live life for all that it can be, and that’s the tenth reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 11. You’re inspiringly confident
You think you’re a cat person but I think you’re spirit animal is a Lion, like your Zodiac. In the time that we’ve been together, I think it’s rubbed off on me a bit, and I’m grateful for it.
You can do anything that you really want to do, and you know it, and that’s the eleventh reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 12. You love me almost as much as I love you, which is a lot
No I love YOU more! I know that’s what you’re thinking right now lol. And I know it’s your birthday but I’m not giving you this one! (I already gave you the better pizza :)
You’re madly in love with me, and that’s the twelfth reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 13. We trust each other and we communicate
I really think this is key to a healthy, lasting relationship. It’s one of the main reasons I know we’re so great for each other.
Whether verbally or telepathically, we let each other know what’s on our minds, and that’s the thirteenth reason I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 14. You’re really smart
If I decided to relinquish my free will and have you make all my decisions for me, I’d be in great hands. (I like to believe I haven’t already done that :)
You’re logical, intelligent and wise, and that’s the fourteenth reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 15. You’re always supportive of me following my dreams
You supported my real estate ambitions, you supported my decision to become a programmer, and you supported my decision to enroll in college.
You always have my back, and that’s the fifteenth reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 16. You put up with me
I know I can be a little obnoxious and sometimes I go out of my way to embarrass you, but you always handle it gracefully.
Too much sauce is never really too much, and that’s the sixteenth reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 17. You appreciate me
For Christmas, you gave me 52 reasons you love me, and every time I read one it reminds me how lucky I am.
You love me for me, and that’s the seventeenth reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 18. It’s funny seeing you scared, it’s like you forget how awesome you are
Every once in awhile, you’re not your confident self. You get scared or annoyed or frustrated and I can’t help but want to remind you just how great you are. That whatever is standing in your way, doesn’t stand a chance.
You’re only human, but you’re an absolutely amazing one, and that’s the eighteenth reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 19. You push me to grow
You help me to do things I want to do, but wouldn’t if I didn’t have your support backing me and your confidence driving me.
You make me want to be a better person, and that’s the nineteenth reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 20. Our love spans the solar system
For your 22nd birthday, I took you to the Adler Planetarium, and our love expanded beyond Earth. We explored the Cosmos and downtown Chicago, and took some great pictures.
“I love you to Pluto and back.” That’s the twentieth reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 21. You’re always there for me
If I’m down, you lift my spirit. You got my back like a backpack. You even let me win at Monopoly and Scrabble.
I can always count on you, and that’s the twenty-first reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 22. You’re my best friend
In almost a year-and-a-half, you’ve become my girlfriend, my best friend, and so much more. You mean the world to me.
You’re the best friend a guy could ever hope to have, and that’s the twenty-second reason why I’m madly in love with you.
Reason 23. You're a genuinely good person
I don’t call you SugarStef because you told me your friends call you that. I call you SugarStef because you’re the sweetest.
You have a heart of gold, and that’s the twenty-third reason why I’m madly in love with you. Happy Golden Birthday baby girl!
