…as you fling yourself onto the couch at the end of a long day and exasperatedly start to bitch about what an annoyingly stressful day you had (super irritated with the whole process of selling our house, current potential buyer may not be willing to meet in the middle on price, realtor who showed our house today while we were out left the back door to our house physically WIDE OPEN at the end of the showing…), he says “babe, are you losing weight? you look skinny
Your turn – what does your SO do that makes you think “yep, he’s a good man to marry!”

We never fight.
He does chores without me ever having to ask him to.
He is always happy to go shopping with me, go for groceries with me, go to the gaz station to get me chips or popcorn when I have craves sometimes.
He compliments me, everyday.
He makes me feel like a princess.
He soothes me, calms me down when I feel nervous, scared, or sad. He always has the right words, the right tone of voice, the right gesture and the right touch, to comfort me and make me feel better.
I love him so much and can’t imagine be with someone else than him. 🙂

He makes me smile everyday!
The last time we fought was literally about a year ago
He helps cleans MY house without me even asking
He will buy any homeless person a meal when they ask for $
He is always so supportive in school, work, family issues.
He calls me “amor” and “vida” everyday (cheesy but hehe)
he makes me laugh like no one else.
He accepts me the way I am. Flaws and all.
My favorite is in the middle of the night he kisses me on the forehead. I dont even know if he wakes up when he does this? haha
gosh this post gave me butterflies now LOL. but hey after two years if i still canget butterflies, its a good sign right? haha

He sees I’m tired, wraps a blanket around me and takes our big overly excitable dog for a walk so that I can drink tea on the couch. And never guilts me about it. I love that man.

An old friend of ours visited a few weeks ago and told FI in confidence that I seemed very stressed and that he was worried. Since then, FI has taken the lion’s share of the wedding work so that I can focus on getting my publication finished. He has also decided that I need more back rubs. My life is freaking great.

After watching scary movies together, he doesn’t complain when I wake him up and ask him to go to the bathroom with me bc I’m too afraid to go by myself in the middle of the night (Yes I realize how pathetic this sounds which makes DH even more awesome in my eyes). He goes to flash sales with me or even for me when I’m stuck at work and will fight his way through swarming crowds of women to get me the shoes I’ve been eyeing all season long. He cooks and kills bugs when I see them. He’s awesome.

@ferdie224: From way back before we were bf/gf… We went on a date and we discussed what a relationship means to us both. I’m a LTR kinda girl and he was not looking for anything serious, so we decided to just be friends (which was torture because I was already in love with him). We were joined at the hip friends. Everything and I mean everything was going wrong in my life that year. Love, job, money, freaking everything. I was sooo depressed. One night I went to the bar, I got waaaaaaasted. We had been texting all night. I left the bar walking and he met me half way (only because I wouldn’t wait for him to come get me) and walked me home. I came home and made myself another drink (which I DID NOT need at that point), started sobbing about my horrible life, nothing would ever get better and fell asleep crying on the floor. It was the lowest point in my entire life. I was a ridiculous, sobbing, mess of a human being. He picked me up (I am a big girl), put me in the bed and I slept in his arms all night. He could have left me there, he could have taken adavantage of me, but instead he took care of me and he wasn’t even my boyfriend. And even better, he never, ever brought it up again.

a recent example, but there’s 923842728 of them…
I asked him by text to do the dishes and put out trash (or something) and he responded “I will right meow.”
The fact that he will do housework (and more than me at times) is enough proof he’s a good guy but when he said “right meow” (like I do sometimes), I just melted. ADORABLE!!!

What a great thread!
-He prays for me, and with me. Night before my board exam, he stayed up till 2 A.M with me and prayed before we went to bed.
-He truly makes an effort to make me feel special-calls me “princess” or “beautiful” every day.
-Buys me things I need without even asking-like a phone charger, lol
-We never fight! We may have a slight difference of opinion on an issue, but he always asks for my opinion and genuinely listens.
-We can make a date out of going to Whole Foods/Trader Joe’s, seriously
-We both don’t need much to be happy. We are very lowkey and simple people.
-He keeps his kisses innocent and truly respects me and my boundaries.
-Truly makes me feel like the only woman in the world.

I once went away for a girls weekend and came back to a brand new over toilet storage unit and a spotless apartment.

For about 3 months, I had an ugly rash all over my boobs climing up my neck, lower back, inner thigh and groin, stomache. It was awful, looked horrible, like I had flesh eating disease or leprosy or some severe fungal infection. The doctor said it wasn’t contagious, but was untreatable. I just had to wait for it to disappear. I felt like a hideous beast. This is when I learned that you know you have a good man when he’ll still have sex with you while you’re covered in angry, red spots. You know you have a great man when he doesn’t avoid manhandling the areas most affected too.

…when he has the day off work, so he comes to you and asks “Is there anything for I can get done for you today babe?” and you say “Oh, the laundry, cleaning the bathroom, vacuuming the house, sweeping the porch, preparing dinner, confirming flights with the travel agent and making a grocery list would be good” and you’re joking, thinking he’s joking.
He comes back 3 hours later and says “Hey babes, I’ve done all those things you said needed doing, anything else?” and he’s dead serious (!!).

He watches romcoms with me, but doesn’t force me to watch sci-fi horror.
And he feeds me when I’m being a hangry* bitch
Hangry, adjective: The combination of hungry, and angry.

That time in high school, when you called him on the phone sobbing and laughing hysterically at the same time, and just screamed, “I NEED YOU COME HERE RIGHTNOWPLEASE.” and hung up…
From where you were laying in the kitchen floor in full pity party mode…
In your pajamas…
After being up all night with girlie cramps…
And spending the last hour on the toilet with a period mess and the runs…
While your mother reads her To-Do list for you through the bathroom door…
While you “yes ma’am” politely into the phone to the busybody neighbor with a bad Yankee accent and plenty of unsolicited advice…
(Because your mother brought the phone to your bed to wake you up and accuse you of sleeping in too much, forgetting your new babysitting clients had been needing you at 6am that week…)
….. and he showed up, gathered you out of the floor, hiding his fear of morning breath and inexplicable hysteria, fetched your favorite cat he’d always hated, petted your hair while you held the cat, sent Mom away, let you smear 2 day old makeup on his shirt, and said really nice things about graduating and escaping and promised he’ll never make you take phone calls on the toilet.
Even at 18, you know a keeper when you see one.
