    Okay, so I thought it would be fun for the guys in relationships to share something about their boyfriends/partners/husbands that they love.



    I'll go first.



    I like Colbie Caillat. Now, she isn't my favorite singer but I do like her music and play it when I'm in a mellow mood. My partner, on the other hand, thinks she is about as exciting as watching paint dry. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that she was going to have a concert in town this weekend. I thought about suggesting that we go and then thought, nah, he doesn't really care for her music and it isn't all that big a deal to me whether I see her or not. Anyhow, when I came home from work today, my partner surprised me by telling me he had gotten us tickets for the Colbie Caillat concert this weekend. I didn't even know he knew she was going to be in town, but he saw in the newspaper that she was coming in concert and knew that I like her so he went and got tickets today. Not a super big thing but just another example of how he goes out of his way to do something nice. It made me fall in love with him all over again.



    Anyone else want to give an example of why they love their guy?

    I have a similar story actually. When Chris and I were first dating, we planned to go visit his family in North Carolina. I am a HUGE Patty Griffin fan. And she was playing in NYC while we were going to be in Durham. Once we got to Durham, Chris surprised me with tickets to see HER in Carboro a couple of towns over from Durham, before she played NYC. It was an amazing concert and our seats were much better than what we would have gotten in NYC.

    That's just one example.

    Yeah, I think it is those little, unexpected things that get me everytime. I mean the concert tickets in and of themselves aren't all that big a deal, it was the fact that he got them for me even though I know he isn't particularly interested in going that meant so much to me.

    Doug's sister is a very talented artist and makes a good living at it. One Christmas he sent her pics of all the dogs we've had and the ones we have now. She did portraits of each one in water colours and and when I opened this package up I was a mess. It was very unexpected and I got pretty emotional, because though our dogs usually live a very long time, I still miss them deeply. One day I came home from work and Doug had not only framed them but grouped them on a wall showcasing them. His sister had made each of them look like they were smiling.

    That's a sweet story, Bill!

    Reminds me of when Clay once surprised me with a framed photo of our dogs and him. They were so cute!

    Great thread, Darin.

    Many things. But here's one: He irons my work clothes for me every single day. icon_biggrin.gif

    Oh, where do I start about the things that I hate about him?

    But that is what I love about him too.

    He's unique, thank god. Another of him would upset the balance of the universe.

    Our personalities mesh really well together. I don;t really know how to describe it, but if you saw us interacting, you'd see how

    My boyfriend and I are about to celebrate our 4 year anniversary together next month on the 3rd, not that it matters but I had to throw it out there, anyway the best thing that I love about him is that he is such a cozzy snuggler. It can be anytime of the day and he will come and get me, and start to cozzy with me on the couch, bed. I love to just rest on his chest or in between his shoulder and head. Sometimes the I fall asleep feeling safe.icon_biggrin.gificon_wink.gif

    I can be in the nastiest pissiest mood ever where I just want to shut out the world but he can still make me smile and forget all about what made me upset.

    And his bright blue eyes when he cries.

    Which one?

    1) He can't live without me, because I can't live without him
    2) His absence, his persistence and the potential that he might one day mean more to me than #1

    Geeze you are a lucky guy to have someone that would go out of their way to do something that nice for you.

    One time at a restaurant when I asked my partner if he could get me a lit candle that was next to our table (I blew our's unintentionally) he refused and absolutely ruined our date (not to mention we almost broke up that night). Something nice that he's done for me though is send me a post card in the mail but cant really think of a time when he blew my mind away.... is that bad?

    he sent(sends) my mother flowers on her Birthday and put my name on the card and did not tell me he did this. I get a call from my mom crying saying how much she loves her flowers, and thank you so much you are the best son ever.
    It was something as simple and pure as a selfless act like that, that lets me know that he thinks of himself as part of my parents lives. He is the most kindhearted
    and generous person I have meet.
    He is also working full time (2 jobs) so I can go to school and study for a job that is never going to make us wealthy and supports me doing this because it is what makes me happy.
    I love him dearly, and deeply.
    plus he has the sexiest ass ever hehe

    I love the fact that he tolerates me. Why does he bother? I couldn't tell you, but I'm glad he does.

    Probably because you look great doing the laundry, the cleaning, the cooking and the shopping. Plus, the marks on your knees really do belong to him, no?

    It's true. I do the cooking, cleaning, laundry and yard work. Oh, and I bought him a car. We're picking it up tomorrow. Now that I think of it, he has it made.

    And, yes, those marks on my knees definitely belong to him icon_wink.gif

    I think you need to find a different verb than tolerate. icon_biggrin.gif

    this. this right here.

    my guy can just look at me and tell straight away what's going on in my head.
    when speaking with him, it's not this puppy love - attention-seeking - kind of conversation for most of the time. it's more like talking to your best friend.

    one really amazing thing about him is that he makes me laugh even when I feel a bit frustrated (again, he can tell). he once told me a story about how, at his job, he got some of his co-workers to get in the elevators, kneel on most of the way up, and then jump or stand up toward the end. he says it makes you feel both weird and like you're somewhat flying. he even told his boss about it. that story, for some reason or another, has me in stitches and when he sees me a little out of it ... he tells me to " smile or else you're going in the elevator. "

    I love my boyfriend for so many reasons its really hard to nail just one. He is just an absolutely amazing guy and we are very compatible in every aspect... being with him makes me try to be a better person, and I guess I love him most for having to deal with me when I am moody and not be the easiest to deal with... hes awesome... and I love him icon_smile.gif

    After we became friends, we became the best of friends. The more we learned about each other the more we fell in love with each other, which then turned into a more romantic type of love a bit later.

    He's a loyal guy, smart, wise, and funny as hell. Very compassionate, and caring the dude's got a huge heart, though he often doesn't want it to be known, cause he's got his reputation of a mean ass to keep up lol. Though I like I'm the only man who sees his more "mushy" side lol. The fact that I'm the only man in the world to have ever seen him cry, or he comes to when he's feeling down, means a lot to me.

    We both share the same views of the world, have the same beliefs. I think that is part of what made the bond between us even stronger, and well as all of the things we've been through together good, and bad, especially while we were in the military. He's a very respectable man, down to earth guy. He fits the classic definition of a man, to me.

    We both make each other feel stronger, and because of his awesome as hell personality, he's always fun to be around. He's an awesome fuckin dude, and I'll always be glad, and thankful I met him, he's the classic definition of what a man should be, to me. icon_biggrin.gif
