Love is the most powerful feeling in the world. It can make people do things they never thought possible, and it’s easy to get swept up in its emotional power. It’s even sometimes impossible to stop loving someone.
Relationships end every day, and even though yours has ended, you still can’t get him out of your head. But why?
Keep reading to learn more.
1. He was honest.
There’s no need for arguments when you can have open conversations about issues in a relationship. He didn’t play games with your emotions or try to manipulate you into doing things. It was refreshing knowing someone who has integrity, honesty, and knows exactly what they want out of their life!
2. He respected your opinion.
He valued everything that made you an individual, which means accepting any decisions made by you, whether he agreed or not. When we have people like this in our lives, disagreements can be solved without feeling resentment towards one another.
3. He respected the boundaries you set.
Some people don’t take “no” for an answer and keep pushing until they get what they want, but he never did that to you! He understood when something was off limits or needed time before it could be reached.
4. He stayed calm in tense situations
When something goes wrong, it can be a bit overwhelming. But when those stressful moments happened between the two of you, he always remained cool under pressure.
No matter what happened, you knew that he had your back and was always there to protect you no matter the cost.
5. He made you smile.
With the world being a pretty difficult place at the best of times, there are days when you may be feeling down or moody. But whenever you shared a moment together, it felt like nothing else mattered.
He had the ability to take your mind off of everything, which helped you feel better almost immediately. His jokes were actually hilarious too, even if you heard them a million times before. His humor may have even been your favorite thing about him.
6. You felt like the luckiest woman alive.
He had an uncanny ability to make you feel amazing. He always said just what you needed to hear and was never short of compliments. It wasn’t uncommon for him to compliment your cooking skills or say that you are beautiful, and it felt so special when he did because it showed his genuine care towards you.
On top of everything else, you thought he would be there for you and your family no matter what happened in life, which only added more meaning behind every single word and gesture from him.
7. You love how thoughtful he could be.
Sometimes a girl just wants someone who she can talk with about anything at any time, without feeling judged or boring. He was endlessly thoughtful and always trying to add some humor into your conversations, which made him easy to talk to.
When you were feeling down or having a bad day, it was nice knowing that he would be there with you no matter what. He knew when you were in need of an emotional pick me up, without ever asking, and you thought he would do anything for you.
8. He made you feel like the most beautiful girl in the world.
It’s nice to have someone who notices and says when you’re looking great. Some days, it felt like you couldn’t put on anything that didn’t make you look absolutely awful – but he was there to tell you amazing you looked – even when your hair was a mess or you felt uncomfortable.
9. You were different people, but that was okay.
You may have come from two very different backgrounds, but those differences were what made you stronger together. One great thing about your relationship was that you could be your own selves, and that was really a beautiful thing.
10. He was so hardworking.
You may not have liked him working such long hours at work, but deep down you knew he had one goal in mind: to provide for his family. There’s nothing more admirable than someone who wants their loved ones taken care of before themselves.
11. You loved how ambitious he is.
He never stopped moving. He had a constant need for progression and innovation in everything that he did, and while it was exhausting to keep up with him at times, you couldn’t ask for anyone better by your side when things started to look bleak.
His ambition rubbed off on you, which is why you find yourself constantly striving for the next goal to achieve. Being with him gave you a much-needed self-esteem boost.
12. You loved how he took care of you.
It’s hard to find a good guy these days, but there are some standouts. He may not have been the perfect man, but you knew he was trying his best.
When you were under the weather or just needed an extra dose of TLC, he was always up for whatever challenge you set before him and never failed to meet those needs.
13. You loved how much he loves himself.
He knew how hard it is to love someone else if you don’t even know how to love yourself, and he loved himself enough that he was able to give his time and energy out freely without fear of running dry.
14. You miss his ability to laugh.
Life isn’t all rainbows and butterflies, so when something really bad happened, both in and out of your relationship, he had a way of adding laughter to the situation instead of getting angry about it.
15. You miss the way he looked at you.
When he was in your presence, his eyes never left yours – not even for a second! You could tell that he was really listening to what you were saying and taking mental notes on how to make every single conversation better than the last one.
It felt so good knowing someone felt the same about you as you felt about them.
16. He understood you like no one else could.
With him, there were never any misunderstandings. He always seemed to know exactly what you were going through and how you felt without you having to explain yourself.
He knew you so well that he even knew all of your favorite things. It felt great knowing someone actually listened and paid attention to you, instead of just nodding their head with fake interest.
17. He was always there for you.
It seemed like no matter how busy or tired he was, he would always be there to help you out, which made life feel a lot less stressful. It felt good knowing that someone cared enough to offer advice or share a similar experience.
18. He respected all women.
He treated you with respect and didn’t make it about him when things went wrong. You didn’t need to be careful around this guy like some of your past partners; he would never take advantage of the situation or use a moment as an opportunity to get more power over you.
If anything, his self-control just made you want him even more.
19. He was so romantic.
You feel like you won’t find any man as good at romance as he was. He seemed like a professional, and even the little things (like leaving you notes for no reason) he did made you feel loved.
Without him in your life, you miss that feeling of knowing you’re loved.
20. He sent loving messages.
Receiving loving messages from him brought out an overwhelming happiness inside of you that won’t go away easily no matter how much time passes by.
Texts like these have the power to give someone who has been having an off day all over again hope and joy. When he sent them, they make you forget about the stresses of life and just enjoy being alive.
If he’s still sending you these messages, it might be a sign that he wants to get back together.
