Lots of us know what it feels to be in love. If you ask people what being in love feels like or what’s the reason why they’re in love with someone, some might describe something like a desire tinged with obsession. But actually, falling in love tends to sound passive, something we fall into, over which we have no control and the feeling is unexplainable.
It’s easy to find someone who has all the right qualities we’re looking for, but the essence of love is in the details. Now, we asked random guys why they love their girlfriends. Some of their answers below are expected, others are not, and a few are just delightfully surprising.
