I just got back from a weekend trip, and I came home to a picnic spread out over our lawn with wine, chocolate and cheese. Then, Darling Husband gave me a massage and I slept like a baby.
He is TOTALLY the romantic one in the marriage. Each morning he packs my lunch and leaves me a little note inside telling me one thing that he loves about me. Today it said:
I love that we watch Mad Men together and you try to copy Joan’s outfits. You always put her to shame!
What are some cute things (little or big) that your SO has done recently?

@QueenOfSerendip: Totally adorable!
My SO agreed yesterday to drive me and a friend (who he’s never met mind you) to Pittsburgh to see one of my favorite bands because they’re not coming to Philly this year for some ridiculous reason!
For the concerts of said band (we’ve seen them 4 times!) he has never once complained about me making us wait upwards of 6 hours in the hot sun to get amazing seats at the venue.
He always sends me the cutest texts too! “You know that you’re my favorite person in the entire universe right?! We’re together no matter what, and that’s all that matters!” was one he recently sent me. Heart. Melted.

Our anniversary was yesterday, and after we exchanged cards, he told me how much he loved his card and said it was really hard to find a card for me because so many anniversary cards talk about how “I know we’ve had our ups and downs” and he can’t give me any of those cards because we’ve never had any problems. That it’s hard to find a card that says how awesome our marriage is.

He made my lunch for me yesterday and wrote “Woman” on the Ziploc. I returned home with a homemade (technically work-made) card with two cowboy boots saying “I reckon we better get to knockin’ boots, partner.”
We have a “different” kind of relationship

Baby has sun poisoning. 🙁 He is blistered all over his shoulders and it was painful for him to lay back at all. I accidentally clapped him on the shoulders, not knowing he was burned there, and sent him into the throes of pain. :/
I apologized profusely and rubbed lotion on his back before bed. He had to sleep on his back because most of it wasn’t affected. No side sleeping for him. I felt bad, so I slept on my back too, holding his hand.
I wake up to this man on his side, holding me! He said he just wanted to snuggle with me so bad, he didn’t care about the pain. He kept kissing me and was just so sweet.

My Fiance is definitely not your typical romantic, however, he has his moments! This weekend he spent a lot of time fixing some squeaky parts on my car. Tonight he turned down a baseball game because I had a mini breakdown about wedding planning and everything that needs to get done by tomorrow (1 month exactly from the wedding). Oh! And he works out with me to help keep me motivated!

@QueenOfSerendip: Wow. That is SO nice! (Can he call my DH? I’d love a picnic with cheese, chocolate, and a massage!)
My Darling Husband was very helpful to me this weekend at our community yard sale. I accidentally set my alarm for 6 p.m. instead of 6 a.m. (DUH!) and was exhausted after staying up until after 1:30 a.m. trying to gather and price my items. When I awakened at about 6:45 a.m., I had to hurry and get myself together for the long day ahead, while Darling Husband set up tables for my DSD and DSDIL and me to exhibit our wares. He was a very big help to us!
ETA: Oh, and he mentioned me in his sermon this weekend! That was nice, too!

Its tough, my Fiance may have one romantic bone in his body and its one of the smaller ones! He’s sweet and wonderful but romance just doesnt come easy for the guy. I’ll give 2 examples just cause 🙂
Bigger, more romantic: For our “engagement party” (which was just us and a ton of friends storming a karaoke bar), he sang Billy Joel’s “She’s Got a Way” to me in front of everyone. We still cry a bit when we hear the song.
Less romantic, more normal but cute: I went away for the weekend and came home. He had cleaned up the house (although not very thoroughly haha) and said that he doesnt give me enough credit– when i was gone for 2 days and he saw how bad the apartment got in that small span of time, he realized just how much I do everyday. 🙂

This weekend we had the guys over to brew some beer, it’s a hobby of ours, I was in the backyard with Wort for a minute and I overheard them talking about their wives, Mr. 99 said and I quote:
“My wife is awesome in every way a wife can be, she’s perfect, she’s funny, she’s gorgeous and she’s mine…it doesn’t hurt that she likes beer either!”

Awww, this is a nice thread. I love my fiance in part because he is the most romantic man in the world. He tells me daily that he loves me and that I’m beautiful and he can’t wait to marry me. I also appreciate that from day 1 he was always completely up-front and honest about his intentions. No game-playing whatsoever. That’s actually the reason I gave up the single life for him. I thought if he could put himself out there and pursue me wholeheartedly without any reservations, I could at least be equally committed (although I’ve always enjoyed playing the field). This intense commitment on both our parts strengthened our relationship in a way I’d never seen.
He also takes the spiritual lead in our relationship, making sure to pray for me and oftentimes when we’re about to get off the phone (we’re in an LDR) he will pray for both of us. Once or twice I was super tired and called him and asked if he could say my bedtime prayers with me over the phone and he always stopped what he was doing (he works nights) to say an earnest and heartfelt prayer on our behalf. I really feel special that I have someone to take care of me in this way (which I’ve never had as I’ve always fended for myself spiritually). It’s very obvious to me that God literally brought the two of us together.

My lovely Fiance is working nights again tonight, so that we can finally do our home improvements. Getting a walk in a shower and landscape our patio. I really appreciate how he provides for us.

My SO isn’t your typical romantic either but he also has his moments. Overall it’s the everyday small things that I find most romantic. That he opens doors for me, cuddles with me at night, holds my hand, occasionally will “pout” until I give him a kiss. Heck, I even find it romantic that he takes out my trash and recycling for me to the dumpster in my apartment complex.
One of my favorite moments though was when we were talking about all things we’ve done together and I told him he has taught me so much about enjoying things like hiking and camping (which we now love to do together) and when I asked him what if anything I had taught him he responded that I taught him what it’s like to be in a good relationship. It was just so sweet in the moment with the way he said it.

@QueenOfSerendip: Oh man… I just wrote about this on one of the waiting boards but I’ll talk about my man here 🙂
My sister needed child care last week, so she brought him to our apartment and we watched him for two nights. SO was great with him the whole time, made dinner both nights and was just awesome. Then sister picked him up, his dad took him and she went to Vegas, except by the time she got there she felt super sick and ended up in the ER. SO stayed up with me all night trying to figure out what was going on. He was so supportive and calming.
Sister ended up in ICU and my car wouldn’t make it to Vegas, so SO gave me money for the trip, paid for my bus ticket (it’s just 4 hours from home… the same amount of time it would take to drive ourselves and costs far less) and took me to the station & waited with me in the middle of the night. Since, he’s been checking up on me constantly. He’s just such a source of strength and peace. I feel my family just expects me to fix everything with no regard to the toll it takes on me. SO is there for just me. Reminding me to eat, drink water, sleep. He’s the only one asking how *I* am doing. To be loved and supported like that is a lifeline right now.
