    I don’t think it’s “spoiling”, even what y ou are describing, but we do things we know will make the other happy without asking/debating.

    I LOVE pickles. FI HATES them with a fiery passion. Yet, he always gets the pickles with his meal so that I can have it.

    I stopped at 3 different stores after work one day because a new beer was released from his favorite brewery (I did end up getting it).

    I wouldn’t call it “spoiling” him, just being nice and doing things that I know will make him happy, and vice versa.

    Not much around the house, but I always encourage him to go out with his friends when he is heitant

    One exmple was last week his buddies were meeting up to have some beers and watch THE Bruins game (If you are a Bruins fan, you KNOW which game this was). He didn’t want to spend the money, but I told him he should, he deserves it!! He went, and it was “the best game EVER”!! He was so glad he went.

    SO is so spoiled. I do a lot of little things for me all the time, but I always go a little overboard during the holiday time of the year and for his birthday.

    I think I spoil him because I do the majority of the cooking.  He helps me chop but that’s about it.  I wouldn’t pick out the white watermelon seeds for him though lol.  Once I made something with peas though and he didn’t want the peas in there so I picked a few out (the ones I could see).

    Oh yeah.  We do everything we can to spoil one another and look out for one another.  He is really patient and an amazing cook!  Especially being pregnant, he has been so sweet walking the dog and doing all the laundry- just little things that might hurt my back.  He’s the best.

    We don’t live together yet, but I LOVE ‘spoiling’ SO and he loves to be spoiled. 🙂 But he also does little things for me so it balances out. I can’t wait until we actually have a home together so I’m able to do more. I like to do it because it makes SO feel special and makes our relationship that much better.

    @MrsLongcoatPeacoat:  I’ve mentioned some of the things I do for my SO to my coworker before (surprising him by doing his laundry or bringing him his favorite beer) and she just rolls her eyes and says her husband is a grown man and can take care of himself. But I guess every relationship is different and that stuff just isn’t apart of theirs.

    I try to do nice things for DH but he takes the cake in spoiling me. He gets up earlier than I do because of school/work so he wakes me up before he leaves and usually has breakfast and coffee ready before he heads out. He also does most of the cooking, dish washing (I hate doing dishes), and laundry. Even after 8 years together, he holds open all the doors for me. The list goes on and on. There are so many little things he does throughout the day, it really adds up so I always try to make sure to do nice things for him like rent his favorite movies when we have a movie night, write little nice notes for him that I sneak in his work bag or lunch box, iron his clothes when I iron mine, and bake his favorite desserts.

    It makes me happy to do little things for him, even if it seems like I’m spoiling him. I’ll stay up late on a work night, so I can make him food when he gets home from work.. or if I’m at a store a see somethig I think he’d like I pick it up for him. He does the same types of things for me, but I’d say I spoil him more than he does me.
