I just walked by my FI’s computer and saw that he had been reading an article titled “How To Be a Better Spouse in 2014”. I feel so grateful and mushy and sappy now and I had to share it all with you.
What is something your SO has done/said lately that made you realize that they really care about you?

He turns my side of the bed on (dual zone heated matress pad) and lies in it to warm it up for me while I get ready for bed almost every single night.
He went out in -50 degree weather to plug my car in so I didn’t have to.

@Sassyfras27: OMG that is soo cute! you’re a lucky girl!
There is so many things that my SO does but to name one I’d say he redirects my walk lol According to him when I walk, I do it in circles, I always tend to go to one side and he jokes that if I ever get lost instead of searching for me people should wait at the last place they saw me because since I walk in circles I’ll eventually come back to it lol
So when we walk anywhere he’ll always walk real close to me and keep on the same path as so I won’t stray and move to the other side or switch places lol Also I’m so CLUMSY so he’ll tell me to watch out if there are cars coming or if we’re bout to go down a set of stairs or he sees something on our path. 🙂

He gave me his favorite fork last night with dinner.
He rubs lotion on my pregnant belly at night.
He watches all my girl shows with me without pouting.
He makes sure I have coffee creamer.
He insists on cleaning up his own plates/etc, Most of the time.
He puts my phone/tablet on the charger when I forget.
He always opens doors/walks on the outside of the side walk.
If I send him to redbox and it’s a choice between “his” movie and “mine” he’ll always get mine. It’s really sweet.
He does all this without me asking/telling him to. He’s really sweet to me, sometimes I feel guilty, like I’m not as nice as he is lol.

He puts me first!
Recently he was waiting in the car while I ran into a store quick. When I was in line I heard it start pouring and groaned to myself knowing I would get soaked walking back to the car. By the time I finished paying and turned around, I saw him walk in the door with an umbrella for me 🙂
I also woke up with a glass of water and bottle of Tylenol on my bedside table New Years day, haha. He is sweet!

@Sassyfras27: That is so sweet 🙂
My FH always remembers things that I’ve told him in the past and I know he stows it all away for future reference. Just little things, and I love if he remembers something because I know he’s been listening to what I’m saying.
And recently he played me a song on the piano that he wrote shortly after we started dating. Just piano, he doesn’t sing. He hid it from me for 4 years! I think he was afraid to reveal that side of himself. I love the little actions like that which clearly say “I love you”.

This morning he brought me breakfast. He’s always giving me back rubs, foot rubs, leg rubs… He lets me have his side the bed where the phone charger is. He packs my things in the morning and goes ahead and puts has in the car so I can sleep late.

In the 6 years we’ve been together, I can count on one hand how many times I’ve opened my own car door. I am 100% not the type to need a guy to open a door for me, but I have to admit, I absolutely love it. Whenever I go to reach for the door handle, he says “don’t you dare touch that door,” it’s so freaking sweet. He will also leap off the couch the second I say something like “I’m thirsty” to get me a drink. I have to say though, my favorite thing is that he “proposes” everytime I put my ring back on. I don’t wear it to shower or put on lotion, so he loves to take it and drop to one knee to put it back on for me. It melts my little black heart.

@orchidblooms: Which one? The mattress thing or the car plugging in? Or both!

@futuremrste: The mattress thing! I’m always freezing at night!

He filled up my gas tank last night. He also went to a fancy dinner with me on New Year’s Eve even though he was sick, because he knew I had been looking forward to it for weeks. He doesn’t let me walk next to the road if we’re on a sidewalk. Stuff like that. 🙂

@SarahTee: You win. That’s adorable!!
@Sassyfras27: We have different love languages. so I am always thinking of this topic 🙂 Little things she does include making my breakfast and lunch every single work day for me to take to work, buying the things I like when grocery shopping even when they are totally unecessary, watching 90% of the tv I like, and taking on WAY more than 50% of the dog care even though they are technically my dogs … just what I can think of off the top of my head!
@PixelMePretty: Hm uh yeah now that you say it, I think this about myself as well! Oops. I should really work on it!!

He brings me a cup of water before bed almost every night. He also washes/cleans my car all the time, especially in the summer. When he gets groceries or has to pick something up at the store on the way home from work, he often brings a “treat” home for me – usually Reese peanut butter cups, which are my favourite!

I had a bad day the other day and I told him I was just in a funk. He came home with a bouquet of flowers for me. He sometimes walks the dog in the morning (my normal morning job duty) if I wake up and he knows I didnt sleep well.
