He knows the difficult sides of me and can recognize what I need before I even notice.
Example: I planned a delicious dinner yesterday at my grandmothers house. I’m a planner and hate to be unprepared. Well my aunt showed up unexpectedly to use the bathroom becuase she was on her way to the grocery store and couldnt’ wait lol. Well she then proceeded to invite herself and her two kids to our dinner and it instantly threw me off. She then stood in the kitchen and just overwhelmed me in every way with questions and gossip (which I hate) and just totally ruined what is normally a very relaxing activity for me. I even messed up one of my dishes because I was so flustered and annoyed. SO was in the next room and saw that I was about to have a meltdown in the most pathetic bratty way and he quietly came in and asked if I wanted to step outside and get some air with him. When we got outside he said “I could tell you were reaching your limit so I just wanted you to take a minute, I don’t really need air.” In that moment, as small as that gesture was, I was so thankful for him. I’m not the easiest to tolerate and my anxiety and short fuse can really make me a ton of fun. But he’s so patient with me and has realy learned how to sense when I need him to do things like take me away from a situation or step in as a buffer.
What makes your SO perfect for you?

stardustintheeyes: That’s so sweet and thoughtful of your SO!
my husband isn’t perfect but he’s perfect for me because he’s so much fun and always knows how to make me laugh, especially when I’m being too serious about something. He’s actually the funniest person I’ve ever met, I’m constantly cracking up at his jokes.
he’s so playful and affectionate which I absolutely love, I get lots of cuddles!

My Fiance isn’t perfect but he’s perfect for me because I can be the biggest goofball with him. We have so much fun together.

He makes me laugh and understands my very dry and weird humor. He is a geek like me and doesn’t judge me for it. He has a way of making me feel so small in his arms (being 5’10” it can be a challenge), he is always there for me, no matter what.
I lost my aunt suddently last week. I called him at the hospital, bubblering and ugly crying, he came running over as soon as he could. He even went to the other side of town (15 minutes one way) to get my brother so he could be with my family during the time.
He’s perfectly imperfect, just what I like. 🙂

Awwww how sweet Stardustintheeyes!! My SO is perfect for me because he is my best friend- consistently! He’s so considerate. I’ve never been so compatible with a person.

…he’s the ONLY person who doesn’t think I’m weird.
Seriously. I get called weird all the time and I know I AM weird, but my Fiance seems oblivious to this and it’s NICE. I get to be the all around Americana girl with him. I stay true to myself and still do my weird things, but it’s like he doesn’t SEE me as weird, lol. Blinders! And I love it, :).

Because when I have panic attacks or night terrors, he knows how to calm and center me. He is perfect because he laughs at my cheesey Borg puns and knows what to order for me at restaurants when I’m too nervous to order. He understands that sometimes I’m having a bad day and can’t go out grocery shopping, so he will. He accepts me as I am with all my odd quirks and never gets frustrated at my fears or insecurities. He is gentle when kissing and kills all the spiders. When he comes home from work, he gives my cat-children ‘welcome home treats’ everyday. He notices my nail polish and cleans the toilet.

My SO isn’t perfect, but he’s perfect for me because he’s patient, and he’s always willing to reach a compromise. I can come to him with any concern, be it about our relationship or otherwise, and know I will be heard. He has no problem disagreeing with me and won’t say things just because he thinks it’s what I want to hear, and I place a very high value on that.

He is the most steadfast, selfless, patient person I’ve ever met. Words cannot begin to describe what kind of amazing person he is. And he’s so unaware of how amazing he is.
Example: I had a mental breakdown and we wound up cancelling a planned trip to France. We lost $7,000 because of this breakdown…not to mention the trip of a lifetime. He never batted an eye. Not once. He just said he wanted me to be OK and that was most important – not the money. He’s never once brought it up – he just let it go like it was nothing compared to what I needed.
I’ve never met another person who would do that.

stardustintheeyes: My husband is far from perfect, but he’s perfect for me because he gets my jokes (and runs with them!) even when they don’t make sense to anyone else.
