I absolutely LOVE this thread!!! 🙂 I think these are the things we need to remember on a regular basis — the reasons we have fallen in love with our SO’s and the things that make each relatiohship special and unique!
My Fiance does a lot for me on a regular basis, and I love and appreciate all those little things every day, but the one thing that really sticks with me, and I think always will, was several months ago, I had to have fairly invasive abdominal surgery (I’m fine now), but it was a very scary thing for me, as I had never had ANY type of surgergy before in my life. Throughout the entire prep (which was not pretty), surgery, and all through recovery, he stuck by my side and did things for me I never would have expected anyone to do. He carried me to and from the bathroom, held me up when I couldn’t sit on my own, helped me shower, constantly made sure I was as comfortable as I could possibly be, and never failed to tell me how proud he was of me for being as strong as I was and handling it all so gracefully (which makes me laugh now, because I think of what a wreck I must have looked like and how weak I really was), but he made me feel like it was all okay and we would get through it together. That was when I realized that no matter what, I would always be able to count on him as we grew old together and we could count on each other to take care of each other in even the very rough or difficult times.
Another thing that has always meant the world to me is that, whenever we do have an argument, he does an amazing job of stopping in the middle of it all to tell me how special I am to him and how much he loves me, and no matter how angry we get with the topic or each other, we will figure it out and all will be fine — he always says, “it’s just an argument.” It really helps to put things back into perspective as to what it really important and how lucky we are to have each other and have the relationship we do.

Found this thread and have to add mine, although it’s weird.
The other day, I jokingly asked if I could walk down the aisle to “Applause” by Lady Gaga, and he just went ‘Yeah, okay if that’s what you want.’ He meant it, too, and I just thought… This man knows how weird and bizarre I am, and he loves me for it.

He does all of the cooking (I am the baker!) including meat, even though he is vegan. He takes my dog and the foster out in the mornings when it is cold so I don’t have to. He hand stitched a sock monkey for me for Christmas with a pouch to hold my remote because I am FOREVER losing the remote to the Roku.

My Fiance isn’t overly emotional or a big feelings sharer. really I know his feelings for me by the things he does.
Recently had an elective surgery and he took such good care of me, slept on the couch for a few days so I could sit up in the middle of the bed, set alarms every four hours for my pain pills, and has helped with my whole recovery. Last night my incision came open and he spent about 15 minutes looking at it and bandaging it up before we went to get it stitched up. I literally know I can rely on him for anything.

Mine always consults on my shoes and jewelry for me when we get dressed up, and often picked them out at the store as well. He has a real gift for finding costume jewelry that i LOVE… like he will walk by a random table full of crap, pick up something and be like “What about this?” and it will be the coolest thing I have ever seen, but would never have found by myself.
I also HATE driving (partially because I am an awful driver), so he drives me literally everywhere unless he has to be at work.
I am a stay at home mom, and he definitely does half of the parenting when he is home… yes, even diapers. He loves to get baby girl dressed, and if she spits up on her outfit he will change her socks to make sure they match her new outfit. It’s sooooo cute.

@Barbiestylez: I’ve been really stressed out and emotional the past few days. Mine got called into work and I freaked out because he was the only thing keeping my mind occupied. He works nights by the way. Anyway, I start crying, and because he works on his own, and misty drives around, he told me to just come with him. He took me to work with Jim because I was being irrational and weepy and he felt bad leaving me. Not to mention that while I got to sleep while he was working once I got tired, he worked half the night, got nothing more than a power nap, then drove me and hour and half to work thing at 6:30 in the morning because I’d never been to that city and I’m a nervous driver. He does things like that all the time. Definitely a keeper.
