What does your SO do to show he/she is over the moon to be with you and how often? Do you think this sort of “celebration” or expression of commitment/love is necessary in every relationship for an SO to be considered appreciative of you and treating you right?
Just curious what some other relationship dynamics out there are like! Examples: taking you out to celebrate big events for you, bringing you flowers, etc.

gives me feet rubs without asking, gets me a drink without me having to get up to get it, makes me fancy dinners and breakfast (great cooking and plating skills), hugs me, kisses me, compliments me.
every day there is at least one thing he does to make me feel special and appreciated.

I think showing love and appreciation for each other is important, but it doesn’t have to be anything big. It depends on how they express love (love languages). DH shows his love by taking care of me/helping me (example – it’s snowing and I go out to my car and discover he’s already scraped the windows clean for me) and by little things like flowers on a random day or pouring me a glass of wine if I’ve had a rough day.

I agree that it doesn’t have to be anything big. The little things your husband does show he thinks about you and what he can do to make your day better, which is what counts. Good to know that guys like that exist out there 🙂

When DH goes out to run errands he usually brings me back a little something, like some chocolate or ice cream or something small.
He also cooks dinner a lot even though he doesn’t love cooking.

My Fiance does so many little things for me every day! He’ll handle dinner if I’m tried, giving me whichever portion/plate he deems “better” than the other. He’ll text me randomly to tell me that he’s thinking of me. He’ll drink wine with me even though he’d rather have a beer because he know I want it. He’ll pick a certain movie to watch because it looks like “my type of movie”. He’s just the best.
He doesn’t always get me flowers or gifts or shout his love over the rooftops but I am fine with that because he shows me how much he loves me in his words and actions every single day!

I don’t like to be showered with attention and my fiance doesn’t really know how and thinks buying me stuff is the way to go (he had bad role models in his life, mother, sisters, former girlfriends) but he does a lot of things – gets a new wiper and changes it, scrapes off car, gets me new running shoes, clothing, etc… I appreciate them all but like other posters say – it’s the little things that endear me to him!

This is gonna sound so ridiculous and childish, but he tucks me in at night. He goes to bed a couple hours after me because I go to work earlier. So at night, he tucks me and our dog in bed and gives me a goodnight kiss. Haha. I love it.

It’s almost always just tiny things every day. He has such a kind heart.
– asks me how my day was
– asks if I’d like anything (from the kitchen) while he’s up
– gives me countless backrubs without me asking
– always takes out the trash, empties the dishwasher
– and I can just see how much he loves me by looking in his eyes

My SO makes and brings me coffee every morning while I am getting dressed, makes the bed every morning, takes out the garbage, cleans the yard, brings me flowers randomly for no reason, rubs my feet without me asking… and the biggest one of all… will clean my cat’s dirty litter box. Haha!

He gets me a bagel and tea every saturday morning, no matter the weather 🙂 And instead of leaving notes for cleaning, they are typically little drawn cartoons that are…suggestive.
not big or romantic, but thoughtful and very us

He always helps out, tells me he loves me, hugs/kisses me, etc. He spends time with me even if our interests don’t always align. He has brought me flowers several times through the years. What doesn’t he do to make me feel special and appreciated?

He makes my coffee every single day. In the last four years I’ve made my own coffee about five times, and he doesn’t drink coffee. He takes a sip of mine every time to make sure it’s just right. He does the dishes or laundry when he can tell that I don’t have the energy.
actually you pretty much listed everything that I was going to, except I make the bed every day. 🙂

I’m a spoiled girl. I get foot rubs. Back rubs every night. A glass of orange juice on the night stand in the morning. And drives me to the airport (for work) at the unholy hour of 430am. If I have a problem he’s the first person to try to find a solution. i wish I was more like him. He’s a selfless man and it comes naturally to him.

– He takes me on dates regularly, ranging from brunch to really expensive dinners.
– He cooks fancy dinners and always makes me breakfast and coffee on the weekends
– Will set me up on the lounge with dinner and when I finish will swap my plate for my drink so I don’t need to reach
– Sends me flowers randomly at work at home
– Hand me my towel when I’m in the shower so I don’t need to step out cold
– He is super supportive, all the time, about everything
– He sends me text messages to say he is safe (I have really bad anxiety)
– He always offers to pick me up/drop me off when he can. I went on a cruise for 3 days and he took a day off to drive me to the wharf.
He really is just perfect.
