National Boyfriend Day is here. Falling on third of October every year, the day is an unofficial holiday meant to celebrate (as the name suggests) the man you love.

Even though ‘boyfriend’ refers to a person with whom you are in intimate relationship, people also celebrate the day to appreciate the men they love platonically.

Many often celebrate this day by spoiling their boyfriends with gifts, however, one does not necessarily need to spend to show how much they love their man. Show your boyfriend (or your male friend whom you adore) how important he is to you, how you enjoy being with him. A little appreciation can go a long way.

Following quotes — gathered from BrainyQuote and Goodreads — of love will help you show your feelings toward your boyfriend.
