I currently run a research project in Afghanistan at a place where I worked for over year in the office. I’m now in the states, but DH is still in Kabul. Yesterday, I had him go run a training for me on the GIS and relationship mapping components of our new project. It’s something he knows very well, and something I would struggle to oversee over the phone. Still! It was like my two worlds collided a little bit, and I was pretty nervous about it all night. I knew it would go great, but obvs I’m pretty protective over DH AND my Team.
On the phone last night I told him it must be love if I trust him with my Research Team. He laughed.
So bees! What weird things make you think, “Wow, I MUST love you because I would not do this with/for anyone else.”
My other one:
-Dealing with DH when he’s throwing up. (I’m really bad with adults who vomit outside the toilet).

@Mrs.LemonDrop: DH must love me if he’s willing to plunge the toielt for me, as gross as that sounds. I cannot plunge a toilet to save my soul (I try, but I just don’t know how lol), and I finally had to have him do it a few years ago, and I was so scared. He had a good laugh over it.
I must love him if I am willing to keep my mouth shut sometimes because I am very to the point and blunt, but for him I will refrain if it means that much to him.

@Mrs.LemonDrop: Well my husband is the only person I’ve ever really loved, so there are quite a few things. With him, I listen and I’m generous, loving and supportive, if it were anyone else I’d just tell them whatever they wanted to hear to make them go away.

The throwing up thing for me too! Ugh. I handle it for him, but would not for anyone else.
Dh helps me rewrite articles. I’m fanatically secretive over my articles until their published. I’ve had a few stolen over the years so no one sees them, let alone rewrites sections of them, besides me. For some reason I let him. He’s the only one I trust, not even my editor sees them before they go live.

@Mrs.LemonDrop: I have to agree on the throwing up thing, but mine is more when he gets drunk (which has only been twice in the five years I’ve known him), and he vomits everywhere. He is such an annoying drunk, but I take care of him! LOL

… when I agree to do the references and formatting on all his papers, because “sweetie you’re so GOOD at it!”
No, I just don’t SUCK at it, haha. He has two degrees and is working on his third, and he still hasn’t figured out how to master Word or to write up a Works Cited page. Guess what I get to do over my lunch break today! But no biggie – he does a lot of crappy stuff for me as well.

@beetee123: Yeah. I didn’t really want to say that because it to sound like DH does it all the time. (It’s happened like twice in six years).
@lolot: OMG! I kid you not: DH teaches kids in Afghanistan how to use word. I go to look at one of our project concept notes last week and get this: HE TYPED THE STUPID SPACE BETWEEN ALL THE PARAGRAPHS. “Use the formatting dude!” haha. I have to format stuff for other people all the time though. I don’t know why it’s so hard. (Though at one job, I know for a fact people were lazy about it because they assumed I would do it for them. I hate formatting as much as the next guy, but it’s not rocket science!)
@tksjewelry: That makes sense. I also do a lot of writing too, but the nature of my work means that a few people read it – including the client – and comment before it gets finalized. What type of articles do you write?
Oh! And turning it around on myself. DH must love me because:
He lets me make a bit to-do about birthdays. (He hates his birthday)
I managed to win him over into loving Christmas as much as I do.
He doesn’t think it’s weird that I sleep with stuffed animals as an adult. Ok, I’m sure he thinks it’s super weird, but he lets it happen.
He goes swimming whenever we’re at the beach because he knows how much I love swimming and that I love it more with him.
He gives me back massages when he clearly would prefer not to, lol.

I think my SO must love me because he lets my really annoying, smelly dog live with us. My dog could have stayed with my parents, but I get really lonely if my SO is working or something, and my little guy keeps me company. My SO actually despises that dog because he swears the dog has been out to get him since day one LOL. My dog LOVES my SO so much even when my SO makes a game out of trying to scare him constantly.

I must love my DH because I share my food with him. (Granted, I do a lot of other things for him, but I hate sharing my food!)
My DH must love me because he really tries to let us have conversations in bed at night even though he’s falling asleep.
