I want a partner, not a sycophant.

My husband is exactly the same as your Boyfriend or Best Friend. I appreciate his honesty, he never knocks me down and makes me feel like I am not good enough, he just doesn’t sugar coat things which is fine, because I am not walking around with an overinflated ego!

Worship is not love. She is wrong. You have what sounds like a great relationship, where you are a real person. You’re lucky.

My boyfriend always tells me he worships me and I’m his whole universe, but he will also tell me if i’m wrong, he’s no pushover! lol

I don’t necessarily want someone to fawn over me, but I would not be ok if he asked me to dress nicely and put on makeup for a Skype conversation. Those are two extremes IMO.

My husband worships God only. That’s the way I want it

I’ve dated guys like this – I HATED it. I naturally am pretty fiesty and tend to kind of be an intimidating/somewhat dominating personality; I need someone who can put me in my place, stand up to me, and challenge me. Guys who only can say ‘yes dear’ are just not my type. My husband is the first man guy I’ve been with who isn’t afraid to call me out and doesn’t think I can do no wrong while still loving me and being completely respectful (though he admits he was terrified of me at first LOL)

A “worshipping the ground you walk on” relationship dynamic would be 100% unhealthy.  If you put someone on a pedestal like that, eventually they will do something “wrong” and fall off the pedestal and the relationship will crash and burn.  I have known people in relationships like that and their relationships never matured- they just sort of self combusted after awhile, either from the weird dependency of the worshipping person or from the worshipping person suddenly realizing that the other person wasn’t a god.  

I have no problem with someone asking the other person to dress up- I do that with my SO all the time when we’re going out.  It doesn’t mean that I don’t like him the way he is, it just means I like to see a change of pace and some different clothes.  NBD. Sounds like your cousin likes arm ornaments, not boyfriends.

My fiance definately does not worship the ground I walk on. I would not want him to. I,  personally, don’t think it’s realistic in the long term. At some point everyone gets the stomach flu, or delivers a baby, or does something gross. We’re all human.  And I want a guy who loves me for who I am, flaws and all.
