We usually just lay in bed and hug eachother, not saying much of anything. 🙂

Fiance will just hold me while I cry (which happened with a particularly rough incident that happened last October that I won’t get into). He’s been there for me since before we started dating and he started opening up to me about things only about 9 months ago (I guess around the same time, October), so it’s nice to be able to be there for him too.

He is one of those people that has their phone on 24/7 for whomever needs someone to talk to and I really like that about him (I’ll get used to the late night phone calls eventually).

We just try to listen to each other and offer comfort. Recently his family has gone through some drama, and it sounds strange, but it’s proven how strong our love is and how we can really open up to each other. He is the type of person who tries to hold it all inside, but he has gotten better with sharing with me.

Fiance gives me the best hugs when i’m upset, and then he lets me cry it out while listening patiently. I always give my ear and my hand when he needs support. I agree with the others that cuddling is the best emotional support my Fiance could ever give.

I second the listening.  T is  a problem solver and him listening without offering help or to take action is hard for him.  But he’s learning now that me, as a woman, has a different way of dealing with difficult issues.  I like to vent/talk to him about it and just sometimes have him listen and that’s that.

As for me helping him, I also listen.  I know he will automatically come up with the solutions himself, but just wants me for a sounding board sometimes to make sure he’s doing the right thing.

After a very serious sitch happened to me a few months back, he dropped everything he had going on and came over and just let me cry and was sooo sweet. (sitch had nothing to do with us though..outside thing)

He lets me cry and holds me tight. We things get stressful, we kind of hibernate away from the world and have snuggle time, watch movies, and talk.

Well I’m a very very emotional and passionate about things in my life, maybe it has something to do with me being a scorpio? Lol.

I just have this feeling of such strong understanding, support, care, and unconditional love for me from him. Honestly, I don’t know how he does it sometimes, because I know I become really difficult, especially when I’m pms’ing. If there’s a situation with family and I want to cry, he comforts me. 

I think that the fact that we are very open about everything going on, what we’re feeling, how we’re doing etc. like all of that, we are just there and know that if either one of us needs the other, we just know to be there.

I’d like to add kudos to all the great Mr’s out there keep up the good work!

I am very emotional and will cry with any emotion intensified.  My future hubby is in the military so at times he seems emotionless but when I need him he is so kind and tender.  He treats me so delicate that I usually end up laughing.

We LISTEN and encourage each other to be proactive about solving our problems. There is also a lot of cuddling involved, I’m not gonna lie.
