Great thread!!

Even though I do b*tch, whine, complain, etc. to myself and everyone on here, I do love J very much. Here’s why: Before we started dating, J was the guy that I only saw once in a while via mutual friends. He was the cute one who always tipped his baseball cap when we exchanged ‘hellos’. Never in a million years did I think I’d be with him. I definetly thought that he was out of my league.

Anyhoo, what makes him so great is that he has done so much for us and our relationship. He used to travel for his job… EVERYWHERE, for weeks at a time. Sometimes he’d even surprise me and come home early just to be with me for one night until he had to fly out again in the morning. After a while he saw how much it hurt me to see him go every Monday morning. We talked about marriage, etc. and one of his goals was to find a job in town… And he did! He quit his travelling job so that we could be closer and build a relationship. After that he paid off a TONNE of student loans in order to work towards marriage. He has accomplished everything that he promised he would before we got married. Now I wait…

What makes him so amazing is that he accepts me for ME: I’m weird, crazy, stubborn, and voice my opinion no matter what others may think of me. And he loves me for it because I am different than anyone else in my family (I’m kind of the ‘odd ball’). And if it wasn’t for those things and him putting up with my weirdness, we’d have a pretty boring relationship. He’s incredible because he doesn’t freak out when I say stuff like: “Oh by the way, there’s a spirit in the hallway… Two of them. That’s why our taps keep turning on and off by themselves and the closet door keeps creeking.” He’s amazing because he takes care of me when I’m sick without me even asking for soup or tea. He reminds me of my dad sometimes, and it’s another reason why I love him. He’s stubborn, and has certain ways to do everything, but he gets them done (eventually, lol). I’m sure there’s much much more I could say, but I don’t have time to type it all out.

Great post!!! MY guy and I met when I was in 10th grade, him in 11th.. and here we are closer to seven years later.. graduated from college and living together for a few months now!! I knew it was fate bc SO & I met at a party, which I NEVER went to… I was the boring mall & movie kid.. and he just happened to be there also!! I remember that night so clearly, down to what each of us was wearing hehe ๐Ÿ™‚

I look back over these 6+ years and see how absolutely lucky I am to have SO in my life every single day. He makes me so happy & has made me into a better person just by being who he is. He is super sweet, loving, giving, hilarious, and just everything I never thought to ask for. I couldn’t ask for someone better. He was definitely made for me ๐Ÿ™‚ Every day he makes me fall more in love when he comes home from work and says, “Hey Beautiful” even when I’m in my PJs and my hair is a mess… he makes my heart melt & I know I will always be as much in love with him as I am now.. even more as time passes!

It’s wonderful to be able to write this out… it really makes you sit back and see how truly blessed you are. I could go on and on… and some things are just hard to put into words♥

Thanks for the great post ๐Ÿ™‚

I love that my SO is passionate about his interests and his beliefs.  I don’t think there’s an ambivalent bone in his body, and I think that says a lot about his character.  When he’s in, he’s in 100%, whether it’s our relationship, his studies, of even his Humans vs. Zombies nerf strike team (yes….long story Smile).

I love that he loves me for who I am, no changes needed.  He tells me I’m beautiful when I’ve made myself up, but also when I’ve just rolled out of bed and have no makeup and crazy hair.  He makes me feel sexy on a daily basis (I think there’s nothing better than getting a hug from him and having the “Mmmmm, you smell great” reaction when I’m not wearing any sort of fragrance).  And he loves me because of, not in spite of, things like my goofiness, my occasional bossiness, and my heated feminist liberal rants.

I also love that he doesn’t hesitate to show love – with me, with his family, with his friends, he’s a very caring person and doesn’t feel the need to hide behind and kind of macho walls.

Great thread!  Like a couple people have said, sometimes we complain so much about what’s not perfect in our relationships, it’s great to take a minute to talk about all the reasons it’s so worth it.

When I met my boyfriend, I was just getting out of a really bad rough patch. I had an eating disorder which had destroyed my last relationship and I had really hit rock bottom. I was very, very ill, but finally seeing the shambles my life was in, I made the decision to get help and get better. I really felt at the time though like I would never get better.

My boyfriend and his family were there for me when I needed them most. They really brought a whole lot into my life that was not there before. My boyfriend visited me when I was hospitalized and he encouraged me when things were hard. The biggest thing he did for me though was he believed in me when it seemed like no one else did. He saw my talent for design and programming and gave me a job at his (then very small) company. He gave me responsibilities I didn’t think I deserved, but he knew I could do it all along. He showed me how much I am actually worth. 

Shortly after that we started dating.

I’m proud to say that my troubles are far gone now. I can now stand on my own two feet as a self-assured and confident young woman. I know that I had it in me all along, but if it wasn’t for my boyfriend I am not sure if I ever would have realized that. My boyfriend continues to encourage me to this day and he is someone I can count on no matter what. That is why my boyfriend is amazing, and that is why I want to marry him!

I agree this thread is what most of us on here need.

My boyfriend is amazing.  He’s one of those people who can start a conversation with anyone which I think is amazing (I’m more of the shy type.. someone starts talking to me and I smile nervously and then run away…).  We have all these little inside jokes that make us laugh a lot.  He thinks I’m beautiful and sexy.  He’s just as goofy as I am.  We can watch stupid kid shows together and really enjoy ourselves. Probably one of my favorite things about him is that he’ll answer for me.  I have a slight hearing problem that I’m really self-concious about, and he can tell when I don’t understand what someone is saying and he’ll either repeat it for me or if he knows my answer to someone’s question he’ll answer, and he does it in a way that other people won’t think, “Wait, what’s wrong with this girl? Why isn’t SHE answering me?”  He makes it a natural thing, which I adore.  He’s been hurt so badly by people, but he is still so full of goodness and love.  I can’t stay mad at him for more than 2 minutes because he’ll give me this look and I’ll laugh (actually he doesn’t even give me the look anymore he just says, “You’re going to start smiling….where is the smile?!” and I’ll start cheesin’ really big).  He and my dad get along waaay too well.  They call eachother “boyfriend” and tease eachother by “talking dirty” to eachother (it’s gross but heartwarming in a way).

Ok, I could go on and on about way he’s awesome… but I don’t want to put yall to sleep.  Thanks so much for starting this thread… I definitly needed it ๐Ÿ™‚

Fiance is one of the hardest workers I know and he wants to do great things with his life. He wont settle for being mediocre. It also doesn’t hurt that he’s a certified genius, although sometimes that gets annoying. He would do anything in the world for me (and I for him). He’s kind, generous and adorable. Everyone loves him! He’s a total people person and doesnt have an issue helping anyone out. He’s just an all around incredible guy and he’s all mine! <3
