I like this thread! On Monday when I came home I saw that my fiancé had washed my laundry. It was neatly folded on the bed. And then he said “And don’t worry! I hand washed your cute underwear because I know the washer ruins them”. What a keeper!

Every once in awhile my husband surprises me by leaving a very romantic mushy voicemail at work so when I get to the office I hear how much he loves me and he can’t wait for us to spend time together. It just brings a smile to my face and no matter how busy I am at work I think about his voicemail

hickoryhills : this was my sweet fiancé today!!! He sent me money after I was saying I still had a lot to do to get ready for our vacation on Saturday! (We still don’t live together right now)

My FH brings me coffee in bed and packs my lunch for work every day. I’m spoiled and I love it.
Last week I was about to go on a work trip – the first trip I’ve been on without him since we met – and he surprised me by having flowers delivered to my office a couple days before we left. There was a sweet little note about how much he was going to miss me and how I’m his world and his future. It was precious (and my coworkers were very jealous).

I just had a long birthday weekend of excess. Hubby bought me several nice dresses, a beautiful rose gold necklace, and a new pair of cowgirl boots! We also ate out every single meal from Friday – Sunday. I don’t normally spend lots of our money on just myself so it was definitely a treat. I made a resolution to cook for the next month and not go out to eat or buy any new item of clothing… But yesterday, I mentioned a new French restaurant that we should try out and Fiance booked a reservation for dinner! And then today, I mentioned I wanted oysters… And again, he took me for some. And while we were out, we saw a new boutique and he insisted on browsing because he knew it was my style and bought me another dress. And then tonight, my period started and I was cramping so bad so he brewed me a cup of tea while I was in the bathroom groaning. He’s just so attentive and loving. I’m so freaking lucky.
I love threads like these, it’s so refreshing to see all this love and care when we usually see threads about relationships hurting.

Tonight I finished my summer grad classes and next week is our 2nd wedding anniversary. He gave me a brand new dress to wear to our anniversary dinner we have planned and a 1941 coach purse. He said it was an end of the semester present rather than an anniversary present because we agreed not go get each other anything. I was really blown away it was so sweet.

He does sweet little things all the time, like he will fill my car up with fuel, buy me ice cream when I’m down, buy me some new wax melts, buys me random crazy cups that I am obsessed with and always cooks me tea no matter what I fancy 😍 He’s lush actually, I was just getting annoyed with him for not replying to my text LOL so thanks for this thread!!

I graduated with my masters yesterday and the university threw us a celebratory dinner. It’s been a horrible 14 months and I am elated that it’s over. My Darling Husband came to the dinner, not only did he take a million pics and had a smile on his face so wide, but he stayed and help clean up the room with my friends for an hour.
When we got back in the car he handed me a card. He’s not normally sentimental but he wrote in the card that he’s proud of me and thanked me for holding it all together and for all the hard work I accomplished. In the card was a gift for an excursion to a tiger sanctuary we’ve been wanting to go to together for years. When I saw that he planned that trip I cried because I was so happy that he recognized how difficult it was for me and he was just so happy for me.

thesecondwife : It sounds like your man is a keeper! That’s so fun that he doesn’t hesitate to treat you with things. =)
And I totally agree – it gets a bit exhausting to hear everyone’s troubles on this forum. There are definitely problems with relationships and it’s really helpful sometimes to hear from other people. This forum is great for being a sounding board for tricky situations. But sometimes I think to myself, “aren’t we all on here because we’re getting married? And if we’re getting married, aren’t we actually really quite happy with our partners most of the time?” I think it’s nice to get a reminder of why we love them in the first place, and to get things into a more positive mindset sometimes. =)

Fiance spoils me rotten with gifts. If I find a pair of jeans I like, I’ll come home to several pairs in different washes. He brings me coffee in bed every day and sends me huge vases of flowers as a surprise pretty regularly. I will mention something once and a year later, he’ll give me that exact thing. How does he remember all of this? Idk.
I am really appreciative of his generous spirit (in all ways, not just gifts).
something else he does that I really appreciate is manage all of my online billing. I can’t stand all of that crap, the passwords and all of it drives me insane. He remembers all of it and handles it for me💕 (I remind myself of this when I get upset over how messy he is… we each have our strengths)
Cheekie0077 : 🙌🏽🥂 congrats bee! You’ve been through so much these last few years, that makes this accomplishment even more amazing.

BalletParker : aww thank you so much my friend! 💕 it really was just a bad year, I’m so glad to be done and I don’t know what I am going to do with all this free time but it feels amazing! Your Fiance is really sweet that he remembers all the things you love and buys you nice stuff all the time. I would imagine that if my Darling Husband were to take that love languages quiz everyone talks about he would be the gift one! It sounds like yours is the same way. It is how my Darling Husband knows how to show love and appreciation. And I also try to remember that when he annoys me! LOL

I love this thread! So much love and caring from wonderful men! 🙂
My husband does amazing things for me all the time. He does all of the laundry for all of us, manages the finances, cooks regularly, takes out the trash, etc etc. He helps me so freaking much.
The things that mean the most to me are simple, though. He treats my daughter as if she were his own. When she started basketball last winter, he took her to the sporting goods store and bought her basketball shoes, shorts, t-shirt and sweatshirt. He also bought her a new basketball. All so that she’d have all the proper gear to wear. <3 He’s regularly checking extra curricular activities and suggesting which ones we could sign her up for. He splits caring for her 50/50 with me and never ever acts like it’s not is responsibility.
Right now I’m pregnant with our first child together and he’s picking up even more slack around the house because I can’t lift things, etc. I’m starting to get to the part of pregnancy where my back hurts if I’m standing for too long so he has been making all of the dinners AND do the dishes just so I don’t have to stand up and ache. I’ve also been struggling with food a ton, and cry regularly about not knowing what to eat that won’t make me sick (pregnancy and digestive issues are no fun!), so he took it upon himself to plan, shop and cook the dinners so I don’t even have to think about it and get upset.
He’s not one for big romantic gestures, but he is so thoughtful every single day and spoils us so much. I don’t know what I’d do without him!
