How was National Boyfriend Day formed

The origins of this day or who created is still unknown but there are chances that it is a result of social media. Every year more people seem to be sharing posts online about National Boyfriend Day on October 3rd, and that is how word about the day keeps spreading. 

Initially, the term 'boyfriend' was used to designate a male friend of a young man. However, in 1909, the word boyfriend began being used in English as a way to talk about a "woman's paramour". Up until the 1920s, prospective boyfriends had to visit a lady at her house to court her in front of her family, to get their approval of her. But the Roaring Twenties brought the concept of "dating", and courtship slowly faded away.

What to do on National Boyfriend Day

Today, a boyfriend is much more than a romantic partner. They are also a best friend, a confidant, someone who is there through thick and thin, and the person you can share your life and adventures with.

National Boyfriend Day is a day to honor boyfriends who treat their partners well and show their love and respect for them. This is also a day to make sure that your boyfriend also feels loved and appreciated!

On this boyfriend appreciation day, make sure that the day is planned around your boyfriend's favorite things, and showing them how much you love them.

Take him out on a date to his favorite restaurant and watch a movie or a concert together. If you are homebodies, you can always cook him a nice meal and just stay in to play video games or watch his favorite series.
