What first impressed you about your man?
I was editing photos and one reminded me of the first thing MM did that impressed me. He changed a tire, in the mud, in the rain without complaint. I had never seen a man do that before—call AAA- yes, bitch and moan- yes, have me help-yes, get assistance from another motorist- yes. But not – look at it- shrug- and just fix it. I swooned;)

Sounds small and trivial but he was the first man whom I didn’t have to chase. Whether I emailed him back or not, he was writing me “good morning sunshine!”. It was a refreshing change from all the men with multiple girls on their dance card!

His confidence. He always felt comfortable with himself and always had a plan for himself. He had goals and achievements and milestones he wanted to accomplish. It was refreshing meeting a mature man like that at a fraternity party!

We worked for the same company at the time (different offices) and I was really impressed with how hard he worked. He just accepts thing need to be done and does them. He didn’t try to get out of it, complain, etc. like a lot of other people were doing.

Haha I thought you were going to ask about our first impression of our SOs when I read the title. I originally thought he was kinda creepy… long hair, goatee, always sitting in the corner of the room doing something on his laptop… Creepy.
But what really impressed me about my Fiance was how easy it was to talk to him. Conversations always felt so forced and awkward to me when I first starting dating people. But for some reason conversations always flowed so smoothly with him. Hours would go by and it felt like minutes!
Also he is a computer whiz and took some seriously destructive viruses off my laptop in a matter of minutes. 😀 He’s my hero.

Well beyond the actual FIRST impression (which was holy crap he’s so gorgeous!), a few weeks after we met, he drove 8 hours to see me and met my entire family. Brave soul!

I’m with TinyTina, my first impression of my Fiance wasn’t the best, or the worst. We met randomly so didn’t know a thing about each other on our first date. He was being a little vague when I asked questions. I fully understand why now, but it was confussing at first and I didn’t know if he was lying or what. I did think he was cute and easy to talk to and expected him to be a fun summer fling – but because of his job (I was being a snob) I didn’t think there was anyway it would turn into more.
First thing that impressed me was how sweet he was and how into me he was. He texted me after the first date, late at night telling me how much fun he had. Our first date was Friday, he went out of town for the weekend and I had other stuff going on, Sunday night he texted me asking to go out again on Monday night. No playing games, no wondering if he liked me or not, he was upfront and straightforward and I LOVED spending time with him. I still do 🙂

We actually met at a party, his best friend/ best man in our wedding is very… ugh.. stupid. He always tries to make the guys do really dumb things when everyone is drinking etc. (He really needs to just act his age) But all of the guys were just doing whatever he said, this guy was just calling the shots, and my Fiance didnt. Just flat out told him no and he was being stupid. It may not sounds like much, but I knew right then and there that he was smart, knew when was enough and had enough backbone to stick up for himself.

I bumped my head really hard the day he met my parents, and my parents were in the room (I hit it on a cabinet). My mom laughed, but it hurt really bad, and without saying anything he sat me on his lap and rubbed my head in front of my parents! It was so cute and my mom later said that it made her feel bad b/c he was so serious that I smacked myself and she didn’t even flinch! From that day on, he always was really serious about me getting hurt. It was just so sweet and made me gain trust in him.

hmmm, well, coming from a very volatile relationship, I think what impressed me with my guy was his incredible kindness. I wasn’t used to being treated so gentle and sweet. (might sound corny) I also remember one of the first times I stayed over at his place, he had to work the next day so when I woke up he had drawn me this little picture with the sun coming up and a rooster crowing. The picture also said “good morning beautiful”. he he

His butt…. jk 😉 I DO remember noticing he had a great one, though! haha.
He was silly. Not afraid to be utterly stupid to get a laught out of me. One of my first impressions was him driving by me on our university campus…. trying to be awkward/creepy and leaning out of his car window to pretend to ‘shoot’ me with his fingers shaped like a gun and then drive away.
That certainly made an impression!
Not to mention he was one of the sweetest/oddest/funniest guys I knew at the time.

- Wedding: June 2015 - Thorpewood
Well, when I first met my boyfriend, I was relatively unimpressed, to be honest. He had piercings and tattoos and smoked. The piercings and tattoos were new to me but I didn’t care. The smoking was always something I said I would never tolerate. BUT the very first time we met, we were already finishing each other’s sentences and we just clicked like I had never clicked with anyone before.
I had just gotten out of a long-term, terrible relationship and my boyfriend was just an extremely nice guy. It was something I wasn’t used to and I was just impressed by how sweet he was.
On a happy note, after a year and a half of dating, my boyfriend has finally quit smoking. 😀

These are so cute! I think the thing that really impressed me was my DH’s ability to talk to adults, particularly my dad. Most guys are terrified of my dad, but my husband just walked over to him and could carry a conversation…for hours! It was unheard of in my family, but my guy was totally not phased by my serious, protective daddy! 🙂

we met in high school and the day after we started talking he bought me tiramisu he had made (i had told him it was my favorite) and he was also so polite. He wasn’t the typical teenage boy at all. Now he’s a chef and still so sweet to me

I had a sudden, emotional crisis, and although his own nasty situation, he went out of his way to help and care for me.
