Lol I hate pants too!  (Currently pants less)

I mainly let him know that I love every little thing he does for me. 🙂 Like if he gets me my favorite drink after work. “yaaaay! Thank you so much honey bunny” and etc :3 

or ahem, he has a waaaay higher sex drive so sometimes I’ll go along evrn if I’m not in the mood *insert blush face here*

I also try to cook his favorite meals as often as I can 🙂 

or occasionally I take a mini risk & buy him something I think he’ll like since we have somewhat similar tastes & so far so good. 🙂

wouldyoukindlyy:  (I’m wearing pants lol!) Honestly I don’t think I do enough. Little things like go get him cold medicine, Kleenex, and orange juice when he’s sick. He’s stubborn and would go himself, but I do it. He’s not used to having a nice (almost) wife so I think it’s hard for him sometimes to accept compliments and nice things.

wouldyoukindlyy:  That’s so funny! I tend to wear sweatpants or yoga pants

I tend to send my SO cute pictures and sweet things in general. I am more verbally expressive than my SO is, so I just express things more in general.

Cook his favorite dinner, leave his favorite candy (sweet tarts) on his keyboard in his office, and for Valentines day this year I ordered him this model set he had been talking my ear off about since December. He was SO EXCITED. Normally, though, little stuff. I cook him breakfast every morning, pack his lunch if he’s running late….Wow, I feel so June Cleaver typing that out. But it’s true…lol (that bitch makes the sandwiches, though ^_~)

ETA: VIVA la no pants revolution! (I hate pants. I always wear pj pants if I wear pants at home. First thing to go as soon as I step over the threshold..after shoes, of course)

wouldyoukindlyy:  my biggest has been getting a custom neon sign made of his nickname in his favorite Color. He loves playing bartender at home so I wanted ‘his bar’ to have a proper sign.   

In regular life I am very vocal with affirmations and refuse to poke fun of him or put him down in public. I think it is important to support your fella when in the world.  

I also get him lots of little treats. Nothing expensive but things I know he likes or will make him smile.

I pack my lady’s lunch almost daily, and leave embarrassing love notes inside quite often. Our schedules are completely opposite, so on weeks we don’t see each other much i’ll generally leave her a surprise with a sweet note by the bed… Like cupcakes from the local bakery, a new hat, etc… Anything I think she would enjoy in the moment. I also act as her personal alarm clock, which annoys me to no end, but I do it because I love her… and we couldn’t pay the bills without her income.

I cook for him every night, I pack his lunch every work day, I keep our home clean, I do his laundry, I never put him down – even as a joke, I build him up with my words, I leave him little notes, I support his decisions and ideas, I try my best to put him first, I’m careful not to lust after other men – real or fantasy, and I still feel like he deserves so much more.

I cook, I clean, I do his laundry, I take care of the children. Although we are not old fashioned our lifestyles are typical housewife and working man! Although there has been a few times when I’ve been out to do some shopping I have come home to a clean home, content children and a happy partner! Show off! LOL!

I cook for my husband, do laundry and clean. He also does those things as well and that makes me happy. My husband just loves my cooking, which makes me feel appreciated. 

At my husband’s gentle insistence, I am slowly letting my guard down. I have survived a lot of abuse and that has resulted in rigid boundaries, as well as severe trust issues. He has asked that I allow him to love me. This is the best gift that I can give him. 

I tolerate the less pleasant members of his family. I show them affection and respect, even when they do not deserve it. My BIL’s wife isn’t as gracious and forgiving as I have been to my husband’s mother.

We enjoy a passionate sex life which helps keep our marriage happy. I enjoy lovemaking with my husband and he relishes that immensely. It reinforces our bond and makes my husband feel better when he has had a tough day.

My husband has a bald spot which he is self conscious about. I show him that I accept that small flaw by kissing it. He shaves his head to make the spot less obvious. I make sure to praise my husband and tell him how sexy he looks. 

I am very affectionate with my husband and this helps him feel loved. We often walk hand in hand and not a day goes by that we don’t passionately kiss and cuddle. He grew up in a cold WASP family; his parents did not even tell their sons that they were loved.
