great list- you have a great man!

I am grateful for my SO because he –

  • is a great father
  • is emotionally considerate/conscious (just not about the waiting part though)
  • cooks (a huge plus)
  • is always thinking of the positive in any situaiton
  • can tolerate me and accepts my flaws
  • loves me- which is something I haven’t had a guy do in a long while… he genuinely cares for me.

Awww… everyone’s SOs sound wonderful.

I’m grateful for Mr. Foxxy because:

-He’s so sweet & thoughtful.

-He cooks! (YES!! LoL)

-He’s a super cutie… :o)

-He’s super smart & completely motivates/supports my educational endeavors. (currently pursuing my Master’s)

-He’s very honest & I never have to question his intentions or whereabouts, as I have with previous BFs.

-He’s very social & lovable… everyone likes him.  He’s a bit opposite of me in that way.. I’m more introverted & can be shy at times.. but I’m usually attracted to the opposite.

-We totally “get” each other..  :o)

I love that you started this post. I think a lot of times, girls..myself included focus too much on the ring while we’re waiting for that ring. And we forget that part of the end goal, is the wonderful journey. So here is my list:

*He tells me I am beautiful when I have no makeup on, and my hair is a mess.

*He loves talking about being married to me.

* He is always there for me, even when I am complaining about my day.

*We are best friends.

*He loves cuddling and holding my hand.

*He is the most wonderful man I have ever met.


I loved reading everyone else’s posts about their SOs. πŸ™‚

@MsFoxxy:  “He’s very social & lovable… everyone likes him.  He’s a bit opposite of me in that way.. I’m more introverted & can be shy at times.. but I’m usually attracted to the opposite.”

This is totally us!  He is a serious social butterfly and never meets a stranger, everyone is his friend.  While I’m pretty shy and introverted and it takes me a while to warm up to people.  I guess opposites do attract.  πŸ™‚

Thanks Tea for starting this thread. It made me realize all the great qualities my SO has:

-patient even when i’m driving him crazy with engagement talk

-caring and genuinely concerned about me

-loyal to his family and friends

-knows when i’m having a bad day without saying anything and knowing exactly how to cheer me up

-knows the exact spot on my back that is sore and give a great massage

-knowing he is the love of my life and can’t wait to spend the rest of it with him

Love reading all about everyone’s fantastic guys πŸ™‚

LOVE this thread!… I read al ot of these on my mobile internet, which is rubbish because I can never respond, now I’m properly online at home I’ll contribute!:

I’m grateful for my special man because:

  • He understand me, very often when I don’t even understand myself.
  • He’s so carefree and relaxed he calms me down when I get all “female”!
  • His family is important to him. Mine are to me and I love that we value that together
  • He comes from a particularly fortunate background; private schooling, luxury upbringing but he is the most generous and giving man I know. 
  • He’s intelligent. I find it such a turn on that he can teach me a thing or 2 about anything!

@tea:  That’s so sweet that he remembered!  I can’t even say mine would remember that!  πŸ™‚  And I’m jealous that you are outgoing – I really wish I was!!!  But then maybe I wouldn’t be with my guy. 

I’m really enjoying reading everyone’s posts –  I love this thread!

I thought of a few more….I’m also grateful for my SO cause:

-I can tell him ANYTHING without worrying about him being judgemental

-He has a way of calming me down when I’m fired up (esp. at him!)

-I can trust him

-He really listens to me

-He prefers me without makeup – Yay! – but I won’t go without it except when its time for bed lol!

-He’s my very best friend!

Ok, I’m done.  I don’t want to gush about him too much, it will get sickening! πŸ™‚

This is a great thread!

My SO is great because…

  • He’s incredibly intelligent and perseverant — he’s 22, graduating college this May, and already has a solid full-time job lined up (which we just found out about today, and I am SO proud of him for it!)
  • He’s an intellectual and can discuss philosophy, religion, politics, etc. with me
  • He will take me to Target and spend two hours there with me and not say a word about being bored
  • He comes with me to the dentist and holds my hand through the entire appointment because I’m terrified of dentists
  • He loves my huge, loud, opinionated and outspoken Italian family
  • He cooks, cleans, does laundry, the whole nine yards
  • His idea of a great Friday night is ice cream, foot rubs, and TLC programming (usually Say Yes To The Dress and What Not To Wear), Sex and the City, and/or The Cosby Show
