    What makes your boyfriend so special? What do you love about him?
    Give an example.

    I ask this because we never really hear guys say much about their lovers. Sometimes I wonder why some guys are together in the first place.

    If you decide to answer this question, I'm not looking for basic answers like: "he's cute, the sex, or we get along and have things in common." Also, please avoid monetary answers like: "he takes me to dinner, we travel together, he buys me things," etc.

    I'm looking for answers that really show the DEVOTION that you have for each other. For example: Did he help you take care of your mother when she was ill? Something that really says he goes above and beyond to show how much he cares about you. Even little things like driving to your job to deliver the home-made lunch that you unintentionally left at home. If your boyfriend is a painter, has he painted a portrait of you?

    I know some of the said examples may sound a bit mushy—at least to a guy. But sometimes it seems like most gay "couples" are nothing more than just roommates who hang out and sleep together until it's time to move on.

    So, ok guys, this is your chance to put your man on a pedestal. YAY!!!

    My boyfriend just finished over 3 months of chemo and radiation treatment for stomach cancer. He has just been given the clear and is in remission. During his treatment, we became closer and closer and spoke everyday without fail. Sometimes the best gift comes in the ugliest package. My man is a fighter, survivor, and I couldn't be more proud of him.

    Static, you deserve an applause, a standing ovation and a golden heart. I hope you guys stay together for a very long time. Forever? Also, once your boyfriend is feeling better, he should come to this forum to post how great YOU are to him for sticking by him during his dark moments. You've shown him what real boyfriends are made of. This is... love.

    My husband got me to be a better son to my parents and extended family, to spend more time with them and be more thoughtful. His tireless efforts transcended linguistic and cultural barriers. My extended family love visiting us and their kids love playing with him. He is also my social coach who gave me the awareness to forge professional and personal friendships.

    I would have to say knowing all the wonderful things he does for his family and friends. Also just being there to listen to me and help me stay calm when some nasty issues have arisen with my sister recently. In fact he sent me a surprise in the mail just recently. I came home and found a package by the front door. Opened it up to find a carefully boxed care package of cookies and brownies he had baked. The note inside said "Just a little something to keep you sweet in my absence." How could he not be the most amazing man icon_wink.gif

    Thank you. During that whole 3 month period, I learned a lot about myself, what I want, and what love is about. Sticking by him just came naturally, there was nowhere else I wanted to be.

    My boyfriend is sweet, funny, incredibly tolerant of all my many neuroses and idiosyncrasies. He challenges me to be better in many ways. He is sweet to our dog and puts up with my mother and family. And he has an incredibly deep and sexy voice.

    My boyfriend is pretty special. We accept each other for exactly who we are. We appreciate what each person brings to the relationship without question or condition. We communicate and want to share with the other. We do small things--not necessarily "romantic," but practical--for one another. I will go with him to his family and him to mine and are able to enjoy spending time with our new extanded families--it helps having similar backgrounds and beliefs, making a 7 year age difference almost invisible. Those are just a few things, the IMPORTANT things, that make him so special. Plus he's hot and my workout buddy too!

    I was a mess 2 years ago when we got together because of a really fucked up childhood/first relationship. He's helped me grow up a lot and deal with my issues. He's patient and the most encouraging person I know, and he has had to deal with a lot more than me and still keeps going. He's kinda my hero. And hes a stud too.

    My partner in addition of deeply loving me has been instrumental in expanding my beliefs, understandings, and self awareness. Because he is different in so many ways (comes from a Latino culture) and was raised very different from myself he provides new windows and doors that I never new existed for me to peer thru and truly discover the diversity of humanity...I have discovered these things simply by having a relationship with him that at times has been challenging....I have valued those challenges and have found the growth from it incredibly freeing.

    He's able to let himself feel and express what he's feeling - which seems to allow me to do a little more of the same, even though it's not always my strong suit.

    He likes my cooking, or at least says he does!

    He'll move outside his comfort zone - e.g. let me take him camping for the first time, in the rain, in the middle of nowhere in New Hampshire.

    He's willing and able to see things as they are and is brave enough to figure out what he'd like things to be like and to take steps toward that - even if we can't always move as fast as we'd like.

    He's there for me when I'm having a rough time. When I dragged him off on our camping trip he helped save my life when I had a really bad reaction to a wasp sting. At the hospital he never left my side, even though I was drugged out of my mind for most of the time.

    On the flip side, he lets me be there for him when he's being thrown around by tricky situations.

    Oh, and did I mention that he has the cutest eyes and nose and hair ever ? Or that we have a connection in bed that rocks every nerve in my body? Or that we often find ourselves laughing til it hurts over some goofy little story we make up together?

    He makes me curse daily every one of the 1,005 miles that currently separate us; and he makes me count every minute of the two days between now and when we'll be together again.

    He's the first person who truly accepts me and everything about me; good and bad alike.. To be with someone who is sweet,handsome romantic, honest, and masculine is such a rare finding..

    He has no hangup about expressing his love for me publicly or in private and he goes the extra mile to make sure I know how much he loves me.
