If you have to name just ONE thing as your favorite attribute/feature/etc., what would you pick?
For me, it’s DH’s perfect blend of humor and emotion in his personality. He definitely uses humor to keep things light-hearted, but knows those times when he needs to be serious. As a result of that, he handles stress very well, can be playful/big-kid-at-heart, and also can use humor to diffuse the tension in a difficult situation.
Interested to see the responses!

I think it’s that he understands me better than I do. It doesn’t make any sense, and I don’t know how he does it.
Ask me again next week, and I may have a different answer.

I love my FI’s selflessness. He gives and gives and is always watching out for me. He loves to protect me and provide for me, he is always helping out different family members and friends whenever he can (usually manual labor jobs since he is so dang handy or just doing favors for them), and he never expects anything in return. Who wouldn’t love that?! <3

My husband makes me laugh. All. The. Time. He is fantastic.

Just one? :/ He is the hardest worker I know. I guess that’ll have to be it. He’s just so great in so many ways.

I love the fact that he is an old fashioned hard working chivalrous guys guy with a highly romantic streak. Oh, and his butt.

My DH has an amazing, incredible sense of humor, and he constantly is making me laugh. That is SO important.
However, if I am able to choose only ONE attribute, I would have to choose his love for/commitment to God. That is the number one reason I wanted to marry him, but he has so many other wonderful traits.

@mepayne: haha, I know. Picking JUST one is really hard!
@tksjewelry: and if we were strictly talking about physical attributes, I would have the same response! It was funny, I messaged this question to DH to see what he would say, and he said the same thing.

If I had to pick just one, I’d say it’s the way he compliments me. He keeps me grounded when I get a bit too idealistic. He makes me laugh when I start to get too serious. He makes me think of the bigger picture when I get stuck on one issue or situation. I love all the things he brings out of me and how he continues to make me grow into a better person.

Gah, I can’t pick just one! Maybe this will work:
I love that my SO is enough like me to understand me, but different enough that we balance each other out. We’re both nerdy in that we’re in the sciences and both play video games, so I’m thrilled that I don’t have to feel like I have to downplay that side of my personality. We’re also on the same page religiously, which is an absolute must for me. But while I’m the more serious, logistically-minded one, he’s much more laid-back. He can handle my bouts of stress and is so good at making me laugh, and he helps bring me out of my shell because i’m more introverted than him. We equate it to yin and yang. He’s yang, and I’m yin. It works beautifully, and I could not be happier.

His need to provide!
He had his finances in order for a family before we met, despite not having dated anyone in FOUR YEARS (he was 26 when we met!)
When my car broke before we got engaged, he traded in his manual for an automatic that I could drive and basically said “Here, I don’t really need it.”
Now that we’re expecting, he’s obsessing over a place to live and what kind of family car is the safest!

He makes me laugh. I can’t imagine a life without laughter and never have to when he’s around.

He is so loving. He adores both of our dogs, adn if anything happened to either, I know he’d be sick. when I’m really sick and he is taking care of me, he completely babies me.

FI is The. Best. Hugger. Seriously, everyone he hugs is like ‘that’s the best hug I’ve ever had’. He’s all mine now ;). His hugs are one of the few things that can bring me down out of a panic attack. They’re so comforting and make me feel safe and loved.
