Just asked DP "why?" in response to "I love you"

He said there were too many reasons, I responded with "you're smooth, give me the top 3 at least"- No 1, "I'm good in the kitchen" - absolute piss take, I am good in the kitchen and we have many jokey arguments about conforming to gender stereotypes but I can cook and he's always hungry so he can have that. No 2 "you're really good at crochet" - again, absolute piss take because that's literally all I do at the moment, whilst watching true crime documentaries dressed in leggings and a hoodie covered in cat fur, with a bra on only if it's a work day. No 3 - "because we're getting through this together and that's not easy and life has been weird and hard but we always laugh and we've not killed each other and I'm really proud of that" - and I really didn't know what to say to that because it's true, and he's never usually that sentimental but that was lovely.

Ah he sounds lovely. If you can have a laugh you can get through most things!

@MarkRuffaloCrumble that is so true. We laugh at the darkest stuff sometimes but I really believe that's what makes the bad stuff easier to bear.

Does he have an older (single) brother?

He does sound lovely.
Sorry I would say don't be surprised if you have to wait some time again for him to say it again, if every time he does he gets interogated. Maybe an idea wound be to tell him you love him and then list jokey reasons you do

I often jokingly say to DH “what do you love the most about me” & normally get a “your face” or generic body part as a reply.

Today I got a similar response to you OP of “we’ve survived 8 years of you & me with no support, a year of lockdown and a newborn, there’s no one I’d rather do this with. Or be able to do this with”.

We lived abroad far from family for a number of years and even now, are 200 miles from the closest family so it does very much feel like us against the world.
