The way we fit together like Lego blocks.

His French accent

His Cliff Claven-like knowledge about *everything* in TWO friggen languages.  My boy is smmmmmmart

The way he looks in his combats. Holy frig

His intoxicating smell

The way he could build us a house and we would eat like kings if trapped on a desert island.. even if he was only armed with a rock and some chewing gum

His obvious affectionate love for animals

His talents in the kitchen

His talents in the bedroom (bowchickachicka-bow-bow)

oh….. you said one thing?… lol!

The way he loves me back in everyway.. for exactly who I am.

Aw good thread 🙂

I knew that I wanted to be with him forever when a very close friend of mine died, and he was there for me 100%. He took days off work to be there with me while I mourned, and still gives me support to this day when I miss her.

I also know that I want to be with him forever because he is the yin to my yang. We are total opposites, but in the best way. He grounds me when I’m being OCD, helps me be practical when I’m up in the clouds, etc. But he’s also a dreamer, has a huge heart, and loves me more than anything.

When our condo was on fire and I was at work, how he saved my dog, grabbed our cameras and laptops and kept me ‘some what’ level headed as I wailled and screamed and had panic attacks when I arrived on scene. And how that was pretty much the first time he really spent time with my parents; how he handled himself with my parents (since english is their second language). That was probably it, or possibly when he supported me (emotionally and physcially) when I made the decision to leave a well paying job in search for something better. kinda crazy how all that craziness cemented him into my life forever.

I knew Mr. Neutrino was the one when he openly loved my daughter as his own…He nudges me to show me how proud he is  when he is holding her and she rests her head on his shoulder.. When the three of us are together..it feels like what a family is supposed to be.. he smells like family..

“Sappy love stories are encouraged!!”

Ok here goes!!

I met SO at work.  I was new, and he came to introduce himself. At first I didn’t think too much, nice guy.  But since he’s a very friendly person, he came by to chat often.  I started to notice how much he radiates kindness.  Long story short, we started dating, and it became very obvious to me that he is one of the most loving people I’ve ever met.  I am truly blessed to have him in my life! (sappy but true)

Our love keeps growing.  We moved in together last year, and have been together for a bit over 2 years.  I’m now waiting for a proposal 🙂

It can’t think of a certain aspect…all I can remember was: we spent a weekend together away at his families lake house, after he took me back to my place–I was sitting alone on my couch. Then I realized I didn’t want to be alone at all. I wanted him by my side for the rest of my life. I wanted to marry him and have his children. It was such a confident, warm feeling that I never wanted to be with anyone else but him.

I mean there were lots before this ever happened but this was a big issue for me.  When I argue with someone, I usually don’t stay long, I literally walk away.  He followed me.  Nobody had ever followed me before and/or cared enough to finish the conversation.  Every time we’ve had an “issue” we talk about it and he says I’ll work on that.  And he does. One of the most important aspects in a husband, for me at least, is the willingness to work on the relationship because things change all the time and we have to adapt.

When I found out I was pregnant. Lol. Just kidding, it was before that. We had taken a trip to the mountains and stayed at a beautiful hotel there was a moment when we were laying in bed and I just looked at him and knew he was the one. Coincedentally, that is the weekend we concieved our baby. It was meant to be:D

my SO is so genuine, he always catches me off guard when he says wonderful things so nonchalantly.  of course he’s romantic when it’s the two of us first thing in the morning, but it’s the things he says when we’re doing everyday things that make me fall in love with him.  he’s so open and genuine about how much he cares for me and it’s different than anyone I’ve previously dated.  he does it in a way that isn’t corny or obnoxious, but everyone always comments on the way he looks at me from across the room.  

if we’re talking about a real moment, I’ve always joked that I’d end up marrying him, but things have never been right for us to date despite almost a decade of knowing each other.  this past fall we’d been hanging out more than usual and finally kissed.  I had to drive back to graduate school the next morning and was absolutely petrified/nervous/etc (didn’t want to mess up a friendship but knew I was head over heels for him).  I had a five hour drive in which I talked to myself almost the entire time, culminating in a “yes, I’ve been in love with him for years, I’m ready to see if this will work.” it took us another two visits and awkward handholding and kissing for both of us to realize the other one was in it for the long haul, and we’ve never looked back since.

Hmm…just one thing?Thats hard!

Ok,ok.He has twinkly eyes.That sounds ridiculous I know,but he genuinely gets a realy twinkle in his eyes when hes relly happy or planning some sort of mischief (he has a wicked sense of humour) adn when I first noticed it,I just thought to myself “when we have kids it will be easy to spot when they are up to no good because they will have that twinkle in their eyes like he does”

And then I realised that Id just thought that,and it kicked in that I wanted this man with me forever,because I know he will never stop having that little sparkle in his eyes.lol
