What Do You Love About Me?

What do you love about me?

Hmm… see that’s a question that seems to stump a lot of people.  The first thing someone usually says is something like I love that you have a pretty smile, or you are so sweet.  I love that you are great in bed, or some shallow crap like that.  Yeah… you and a million other people on this planet share that quality.  Dig deeper.  Do you ever find yourself asking that of someone?  Hoping they will say something that is beyond surface deep…


I love that you have no problem stopping everything you’re doing, just to make sure those you love are taken care of. You work day in and day out pouring your blood, sweat and tears into everything you do and sometimes never getting acknowledgement for it.  Yet, you never complain about it.  Because you’re not a complainer.  You are a doer.  And you don’t do something seeking approval, or praise for it.  You do something, because you love what you do.

Or maybe…

I love that you stand up for what you believe in and never back down when challenged. You face obstacles head on, and I know there are times you may be afraid of a fight, afraid of losing, but with shaking knees and a rapidly beating heart you stand tall in the face of your challenges and you appear as if no one intimidates you.  But you want to know what I love about you even more?  The fact that you make me want to be just like you and live in your example.

How about this…

I love that you are a teacher to so many and don’t see it.  Do you know that everyday I am with you I learn something about life, something about myself, that I never knew before?  And that’s because of you.  You open my eyes with your love, with your infinite wisdom… and those hands… Gosh, baby, those hands….

They do so much more than caress my pains away, or give me warmth when you hold me.  They literally push me in directions in life that I feel are for the betterment of me.  Those hands lift me, mold me and help me become a better lover, a better person, a better friend, a better… Me. 


Yeah.. I could tell you that I love that you’re a great cook.
I could tell you that I love that you are banging hot and sexy.
I could go on and on about how smart and talented you are…
But, the truth is, those things are just surface deep.

What do you love about me?

Can you answer that?

    1. Your words always warm my heart, Muntazir. I really appreciate your sincerity when you share your thoughts and I appreciate your presence on here, my friend. I’m humbled that you love what I share on here and who I am as a person. Most find the traits you see in me intimidating, but it feels good to know you appreciate that part of who I am. Thank you for that and for all the love that you show. I really do appreciate it.

      May you have an awesome day ahead, my friend! Take care!

  1. Wow, Brandi!! A stunningly awesome post!! I so loved this! I can just picture some poor guy having been caught off guard with this question and a deer in the headlights look on his face! This is such a super piece and read! Can’t wait to share this!! Hey, this is how it is with everyone on both sides of that question – you need to take me – “As Is”!!! But honestly, a guy should know why he loves you. Here is my answer – “I love you because I can’t live without you!”!!! Bellissimo, Dear Brandi, Bellissimo!
