Before I dated my fiancee I dated guys who treated me TERRIBLE. They would talk down to me, disrespect me, and they were horrible. They were going nowhere in life and we’re into selling and doing drugs and had no future. They also treated me really bad…did I already mention that? hahah They lied to me alll the time and told me what I wanted to hear.

My FI was one of the only men that NEVER lied to me. It seems odd but I wanted to know about ALL the women he had sex with,what he did, etc. And  he never lied. He told me the truth. He never lied about his feelings for me either and he never told me what I wanted to here. A lot of guys tried to date me just to sleep with me (I was a virgin) and he didn’t care. He isn’t as romantic as some guys, but he knows what I like and he tries. He cooks, cleans, does the laundry, plucks my eyebrows, pops my pimples, etc. It sounds crazy but he does anything for me. He is also the only guy I’ve ever met that commited like he did. He gave up drinking and other things. He’s been clean for 3 years. He also moved from Michigan to Pennsylvania to be with me and took a year off of college to be near me. I’ve never met a guy quite like him. 

He’s my best friend and he’s the only person who understands me.

For me, my fiancé is the first guy I’ve dated who’s a man. He works and has his own car and helps support me. And he’s the sweetest. He’s very up front and honest, and is always willing to listen and help me. And he never gives up on me. In two years, he’s only considered walking away once…and I don’t blame him. I have been dealing with mental health issues and it’s a lot for him to handle. But he apologized and came back and our relationship has gotten even better.

Even then, he didn’t give up on me and still told me that he knew I’d be fine and that he’d always be my friend and that I’m more than welcome to still be friends with his parents because they are part of my support system. 

Everything isn’t always perfect, but at the end of the day I know what unconditional love is πŸ™‚

I have to laugh about this a little. I was out with a friend wedding dress shopping this afternoon. On our way home she went into this long rant about how awesome my fiance is. She’s a newer friend, so she’s just getting to know him and it was really cute to hear her recite this long list of reasons of why he’s just an awesome guy and I’m so lucky to have him.

And the best part about it – she was right about every reason she gave!

I feel lucky to be truly marrying the love of my life. A very short list of the reasons why:

He’s amazingly supportive of me. He encourages me to follow my dreams and has done everything he can to make them come true. He moved with me across the country so I could go to grad school. He’s been working two jobs for the past year and a half to make this all possible. He listens to me, understands me and respects me. He’s adopted the animals I’ve had for years before I met him and he takes care of them and loves them as much as I do. He’s going to be an amazing father. He’s smart, funny and so good looking πŸ™‚

Most important I can’t imagine my life without him and can’t wait to be his wife.

@MIBEETOWED: How much time have you actually spent lurking the boards? I only ask because in this thread and your “Have your every considered that maybe your guy is saving for a ring” thread, you make it seem like you thought there was a void for the topic on the boards and that you were introducing a new concept. There are many “What do you love about your SO” threads. You’ll find the women here very open and honest about their feelings.

1 – He’s an emotional rock.  I have never met another person (let alone another man) with the emotional security that my FI has.  ANYTIME I question myself or anytime I become a wreak, he is able to snap me back out of it.  Last night I was freaking out over a boatload of things, INCLUDING somethings that made me unhappy about the relationship.  FI fluffed up the pillowed, led me to lie down, held me and told me to vent.  He wanted me to tell him EVERYTHING that was bothering me, including anything he was or wasn’t doing for me.  FI said that he is not only my husband to be, but he is my best friend, so I can tell him anything.

… that meant a lot. <3

 

2- He is hot.  He’s built like Thor – enuff said. =)

 

3- He’s funny.  FI was always the class clown (and jock on the side).  He has an easy-going personality and never fails to do something silly to make me laugh.

 

4 – He’s empathetic and a great judge of character.  Sometimes if I am blinded by rage or judgement, I am often in awe of how FI can say a few simple sentences to get me re-thinking my words and taking others into consideration.

 

5 – He IS the typical “white knight“.  Aside from being a hero and saving lives a few times, he is chivalrous, a gentleman but also VERY secure in his masculinity. I am a very strong, independent woman, and it takes a very special guy to be able to respect that.  He is a wimp by no means and will let me know if I’ve crossed a line with him.  However, he is not intimiated nor threatened by my strength, but rather very happy for me and loves me for it!! <3

@MIBEETOWED: KatyElle isn’t attacking you. It’s your word choice of your post right above hers that creates a tone that makes it sound like there is something women here haven’t realized. And she is correct when she says there are tons of posts floating around out there about how these women have amazing partners. They aren’t labled “let’s brag about our partners” but rather the bragging comes up in other stories. But what you said makes it sound like these ladies don’t appreciate their partners, or don’t take the time to recognize all their awesomeness, or don’t realize that this site isn’t just for complaining, or that there is something wrong (by your use of the word “disturbed”) because there weren’t a lot of hits on your thread. If you didn’t mean to create that tone then the best response would have been a friendly explanation. Things get misinterpreted on here all the time. It’s the internet and words alone don’t always convey the message properly. There is no reason to go out of your way to tell KatyElle that you don’t care what she thinks. A polite explanation would have been fine.

He is the man that I would miss if I never met him. He is the obe whos soul is linked to mines. He is the one who captured my heart even with the brick wall that was around it. He is the one who not only loves me, but my daughter as if she were his own. He is the man that I am proud to say I love…. and his smile proves it

Sad that such a nice post turned crabby.  :/  Anywho, I’ll try to keep it short.  He tries.  Whatever I ask, he tries.  Neither of us is perfect but effort means so much to me.  He’s personable and everyone loves him.  He listens to my crap, no matter how stupid.  He kisses me at the gym (observers may want to vomit but it makes me feel special :)).  There’s just a feeling of peace and I’m home where I’m supposed to be when we’re together.  We have the spark we had when we met 6 years ago.

I love my fiance because when I’m with him, or even when I just think of him, I feel a balance and an immense peace.  He is so emotionally supportive, but he doesn’t let me get away with too much.  He pushes me forward when I need to be pushed and pulls me back when I need to be pulled back.  HE IS FUNNY!  Sometimes I think we have such a similar sense of humor that I have to blink and wonder how he said the same thing I was thinking.  We love doing so many of the same things together.  Even if there are some things we don’t both love, we want to know more about each others interests.  He works hard.  I just know that he is the person I was looking for for so many years.  He is my best friend with whom I am also in love.

Okay I’m also really confused about how this post was construed as anything bad… I know I repost things sometimes to get new opinions. But anyways, I like the idea of bragging about your FI. Mine used to be a college athlete and he works out a lot so I think he’s pretty good looking πŸ˜‰ He will also bend over backwards for me, and the other day FMIL said “I can tell how much he loves you every time he looks at you.” So true.. he is basically the best. Everyone else brag away!
