So ladies, this topic is dedicated to bragging about the groom for once! All we talk about is the ring, the dress, the shoes, the makeup, the invitations, the flowers bla bla bla…but what about The ONE, your fiance, the man of your dreams, the knight in shining armour, the man you can’t wait to spend the rest your life with? Bet you can’t wait for his reaction when he sees you in that dress! So common, let’s hear what you love about your man! What’s he done lately that made you that much happier to be marrying him? What’s he up to these days while you’re busy with all the girly wedding fuss activities? I’ll start…
This was so special to me and I feel proud of my man, but to start off, let me tell you that my guy HATES shopping with a passion and when we do shop together, like after 30 minutes, he complains like a 2 year old so it’s utterly impossible to take him to any store. This is how much he cares about fashion=0. So it’s usually up to me to beg him to go to the store and buy him something nice (and when it fits, he likes how he looks and checks himself out…it’s quite amuzing). Anyway, I nagged and nagged him about us really needing to go pick out his beach attire (it’s now less than a month before our beach wedding!!!). I was so scared that the all the summer beachy linen clothing would be sold out, and also didn’t want to leave this important detail to the last minute. So I nagged and nagged him to go shopping with me, and finally picked a day and went. We ended up having to drive around to different stores, it took us all day to find the right size and color pants,a matching shirt, a matching belt, all after spending what felt like 10 hours in various fitting rooms. and he DID NOT UTTER A SINGLE COMPLAINT the entire time! (I’m talking 8 years of painful shopping experiences). Actually, guess who was complaining? ME! I was exhausted (this is not the same as shopping for youself, which we can do for hours without tire, right?) So anyway, Mr. Handsome beach bum got lots of praise and kisses for being so good and very pleased with himself! Love him!

But there are oh so many things I love about him… He is crazy smart and my intellectual equal. He is so kind and sweet and loving and none of that is faked.. just all natural. He is so funny that I should prob start wearing poise. He can go from being really nervous to being my rock on 0-.2 seconds. He is delicate with me and treats me like a woman. But he does other things (;-) ) that treats me like a whore :-p He is well mannered and polite and very outgoing. He listens and communicates very well. He stands up for me even when I am wrong. He listens to me even when he knows already what I am going to say (or when I have said it a million times before). He is a go-getter and supports me in anything I want to do (and also things I don’t want to do). He takes me into consideration ALWAYS. Did I mention also happens to be hot?? Well he is! When we first met, I called him easy (not in a bad way)..lol It was just easy talking to him.. easy being with him.. he is my comfort for sure. He is such a hard worker ..I very much admire his initiative. There is all of this and so much more… But I wasnt asked to write a book about him :-p

That’s funny my fiancé hates shopping as well. Even grocery shopping. And I told him how I was really upset because I do the vast majority of the chores (I’m a neat freak and have specific ways of doing everything) and he didn’t even keep my company while grocery shopping and he didn’t even get upset at me whining, he’s just gone with me every time now 🙂 Without complaint. Which is something little, but it means a lot to me.
He also is always growing and our relationship is growing and he’s been incredibly sweet while I work on my mental health issues. He is always there for me and believes in me when I don’t believe I’m getting better.

What first attracted me to my man was his rugged masculinity. He worked as a logger and shortly after we met, he called and told me of how he was charged by a grizzly bear and walked away (unfortunately had to shoot the bear- but it saved his life). I knew he was the type of guy I’d want by my side when shit hits the fan!
More recently, I was waiting for him to come home one day as he’d just gone to take the dog for a walk, and I was wondering why he was taking so long, so I went outside to find him. There he was on his knees out front fixing our 7 year old neighbor’s bike chain! How incredibly sweet is that?
My guy is most definately not the squishy romantic type, but it just makes it so much more special when you see those moments of pure kindness.

@lazybee: Now that’s love! 😉
Darling Husband is pretty amazing but lately he’s gone over and above! We just got married in April and decided @ 3mths we were ready to ttc.. well I’m now 7wks preggers and sooooooooo nauseuos ALL the time so getting things done around the house has been pertty much on standstill…. (I spend most of the day trying to get tidbits of work down and holding my stomach while laying in a ball… it’s stinky)
Dh works M-Th 10 hr days in a physical demading job doing custom cabinetry so needless to say.. he’s pretty tired when he gets home…. Oh and he serves in our youth ministry at our church so M-W evenings include late nights of video editing and service…
So… on to his awesomness… The last 2 weeks he’s spent his friday’s off cleaning and washing EVERYTHING! Taking pretty much full care of my/now his 7 y/o and let me rest as much as I need…… And he’s HAPPY to help me… stopping to come and love on me and then getting back to whatever needs to be done. He’s been absolutely FANTASTIC and I couldn’t ask for more! =D

Everyday I am reminded how blessed I am to have Mr. M in my life. It’s the little things that he does that makes me so grateful. A prime example being that many of my friends have had boyfriends, husbands, etc. who they constantly complain about. I always feel so strange not ever really having anything to add to the “b!tchfest” lol.
Today I had the day off from work, and I took my daughter and our dog to the pet store for a bath. Usually Mr. M goes with me and he holds Leah (our dog) while I wash her down. Today was a mess! My daughter (who will be 6), just stood by laughing her head off while the dog kept escaping from the reins in the giant tub. She jumed out of the tub twice and I had to pick her up (soaking wet) and put her back into the tub. lol!
I sent him a text sayng how much I love and miss him! lol Its just the little things that he does and how he helps that mean the most to me.

There’s so many things I love about my Fiance. He is smart, creative, talented, passionate, easy-going, geeky, reliable, he is crazy about me and always doing his best to show it, and he is very honest and trustworthy. He has done a few really sweet things to show how much he cares about me in the past week.
I came home from work to find a very touching note on the dry-erase board we have on our fridge. He wrote “I never thought I could find someone who could make me so happy, but you’ve made me the happiest I’ve ever been in my life. I can’t wait to call you my wife! I love you”.
We also had our couples wedding shower this past weekend and he told me that he had a very good time there and he realized the wedding feels a lot more real now and he thinks he fell in love with me all over again. 🙂

He loves me for ME, he loves my son from a previous marriage (says he should’ve been HIS), is an awesome dad, protective of me and the kids, can handle a crisis, doesn’t take shit from anyone….
He’s my Knight is Shining Black Armor (anyone who’s familiar with the Black Knight knows what I’m referring to, and it’s NOT an exaggeration when applied to him). He’s good with a gun (gave me a refresher course after I hadn’t used one in YEARS). He’s awesome with a sword.
He’s a kick-ass chef (has done catering), can mix drinks and creates new ones (I currently have three he created for me), is the best damn dad ever.
Oh, yeah, there’s also the fact that he’s someone I can’t bully or out-argue and we’re equally matched when it comes to arguments (we both go for the throats, lol).
This might sound cliche’ and typical, but he really IS my soul mate. We are perfect together and work together as a team, to the point it’s eerie (just as his 19 year old son, lol).
He shoots from the hip and doesn’t back down. NO ONE is safe when it comes to that, lol. Not me, the kids, his family or friends.
There isn’t anything he wouldn’t do for me, or the kids, he’s romantic, and goes out of his way to make things work. He’ll surprise me, he’ll take care of me, and he’s everything I could dream of in a man AND a father.

I love that he loves me so deeply. I have never met someone with more passion for a realtionship. I love that He busts his ass working 2 jobs and 70 hours a week to support our family, so I can have my awesome 7 am to 2 pm schedule and spend as much time as I can at home with our little one. I love that we play. Yes like kids we play. I think it keeps us young and it just well fun.I love that he is such an amazing father. I honestly couldnt ask for anything better. If our son grew up to be just like him, there would be no complaints here!! I just love that we have an open honest relationship and we can talk and have good communication. It took us a while to work on that, but we are in such a good place now. I honestly couldnt ask for a better man, and I cant wait to be his wife! He may not be perfect, but he is absolutely perfect for me! I cant picture spending my life without him!

@SweetDreams23: I feel the same way. I rarely rarely complain about Fiance and if there is something to say it’s something small. He’s such a good guy. Lately, these are things I have to thank him for
- the way he ALWAYS compliments me, telling me I’m the most beautiful woman he’s ever met, that I’m amazing, etc, until I’m on cloud 9. And it’s not fake, it’s sincere.
- The little glitter in his eyes when he tries tickling me and then he knows I’m going to get him back but he’s terrified of it
- The way he sticks around even when depression strikes and I don’t want to move all day
- The way HE’s the one to motivate me to get important things done, and encourages me to get things out of the way
- the way he writes, and has a passion for writing and supports me in my endevors (sp?) to become published myself
- the way he snuggles me every night close, and calls me telling me he misses me when he’s on his way home from work

I could write a BOOK but I’ll condense it for you 🙂 I love how he excuses himself to go have “kid time” after church – i.e. playing with our friends’ kids in the church lobby. I love that he’s the worship leader in our church – that boy can SING and he’s an amazing guitar player. He’s a police officer, and people always remark that he’s so kind and understanding on the job. I love that people confide in him – proves he’s trustworthy and a good friend. I’m in grad school for nursing and he is incredibly patient and caring when I’m stressed. The only way I think I could possibly love him more is to see him be a daddy to our kids someday. Ok. Cheesiness quota maxed out for the day.

Wow–I was just thinking about how I wanted to start a thread like this! I love these.
Where do I begin? There really are so many things I adore about my husband. Before we ever spoke, I was drawn in by his eyes and the dimple in his cheek and his great singing. I love that he’s very positive and playful and keeps me laughing. I love that he has many interests and that we can do all kinds of fun things together. He also raves about everything I cook even though I’m a novice cook. He constantly tells me and shows me how much he loves me and I just feel very secure with him. He loves his family and my family. He’s also a very talented musician. We love going to church together. I love that he values holidays and traditions. I also love that he loves dogs and kids and he’s a secret softie for Winnie the Pooh. So cute! I just love him oodles and oodles!
