Mine's just lovely. If he didn't snore he'd be perfect. I've always told him I won the boy lottery when I met him ( it was a long time ago, boy did fit him better then) and I still firmly believe that. Lucky aren't we?
I flippant one is
"when he's stressed he cleans"
Sometimes I pick a fight because I can't be arsed to clean the kitchen.

On a more serious note

3). He is my world. I can't imagine life without him.
4). He has the patience (&desire) to build endless Lego whatnots with the DS (Lego is vital ChezLego)

YouAreMyRain did you mean COCK or COOK?
He loves being a family,
he is sexy,
he makes me feel sexy,
He's intelligent, funny and kind.
If I'm stressed he takes over with DS, does the bedtime routine, gives me a massage and feeds me chocolate
He adores both DS equally even though only DS2 is biologically his.
Also gives killer foot rubs.
He's tall and strong (just as well because I'm neither )
He owns a spice rack and knows how to use it!
He's scarily clever but never at others' expense.
He fully supports my geekiness and pedantry.
He is always gentle and kind - even when winding me up!
I love that I can be me infront of him. It hasn't always been like that but after nearly 10 years there's nothing I can't do or say infront of him.
I love that he is the best dad ever to our DC. Always puts them first and wants the best for them.
He makes me laugh all the time and I know we will always be together. I try to make him laugh but I am shit at being funny but atleast I try! For example I was having a wee and he said 'ooooh nice skid marks' cue me thinking oooooooh noooo but he was just being silly.
I honestly can't think of a thing I would change about him.
He does most of the housework and gets up to the children much more than me.
He loves me.
I'm a pain in the arse but he doesn't care
He has shared custody of his daughter from first marriage and is on good terms with his ex wife. (I think this says a lot actually)
He is a nice man.
Cooks the Xmas dinner
He makes me laugh
He thinks that the dc are amazing and they think that of him

He brings me random presents, and buys me flowers regularly.
He doesn't think I'm fat.
He'd do anything for me (and I for him)
He makes tea occasionally, and doesn't tut when I have another glass of wine.
When we met i had lots of his friends tell me he'd never settle down, never want children etc. his reply to them all was he'd never met the right person. Ds is his pride and joy
He is just great - he loves me even when I'm at my most psycho!
He's a fantastic dad.
He supports me in my career & choices no matter what.
He looks super sexy, especially when wearing a suit - gorgeous broad back!
He brings me McDonalds when I'm hungover even though when he's hungover I'm mean & angry & annoyed that our day is potentially ruined!
We've somehow created 3 gorgeous boys & I just can't believe my luck.
Should also add after reading others , he's calm; gets up with the boys way more often than I do; does the majority of the housework & cooks Christmas dinner
Were all so lucky arent we. Cant believe after 7 1/2 years im still madly in love with him, i just knew there was something about him first time we ever met
We did have a rocky first few months due to certain problems, i guess you could say i took the biggest chance of my life by standing by him think its pulled off, we are both better people
I dont usually like him seeing what im upto on the pc but i hope he does have a nose at this and he might realise how much i love him
Oh yes forgot to mention he loves me whatever weight I am, I have fluctuated about 5 stone since I met him and he doesn't mind and finds me attractive whatever my weight
Moxie girl im same my weights been up and down like a yoyo he dont seem to care. Just before i got pregnant with my eldest i was feeling upset id gone from a 14 to a 16 and he made a little comment he swears he was joking but i went mad hes never commented since lmao

He knows my job is harder than his, though he gets paid way more
He's really good at pressie buying
He does all the cooking
He reads, loves films, as I do

I assume he still fancies me, though he remarked positively about Miley Cyrus in Wrecking Ball. And the same about the chap who did the Chatroulette parody.

He loves his family
He dots on ds and is so proud of him
He is very practical
Generous beyond belief
Always puts his family first
He is funny
Supportive - even stands up to MIL when needed. Sensitive

My fiancé is strong minded, challenges me (and I him, a little too much sometimes), his only want in life is love, he's sensitive, caring, kind, generous, a wonderful daddy to my DD, adores the both of us, thinks I'm the most beautiful woman alive (I think he needs new glasses), his favourite thing in the whole world is snuggles with DD and I in the morning, he works hard, intelligent, funny, a liberal feminist, respectful, sexy as fuck, massages me, doesn't strop, tolerates my mood swings in the run up the the crimson bastard, affectionate, thoughtful and downright perfect for me.
Cannot wait to get married to him and I thought I'd NEVER say that
Love this thread, has made me think about just how much I love my DH
He's an amazing dad to our ds (and did more than his share of the 4/5am wake ups, dispute working long hours)
He works damn hard so I can be a sahm
He knows my job as a sahm is equally important and difficult as his (and stands up for me if anyone ever dare say I don't work/don't have a job)
He's just on the same 'wavelength' as me iyswim
He's really supportive of me studying for a degree
He will always put me and ds first
He will get takeaway whenever I cba cooking
way too often
He's very intelligent, and we have the longest most bizare conversations
He 100% trustworthy and honest (even when telling me what clothes looks good/bad etc)
Aww I luffs him I do!
He's kind, gentle, generous and loyal. I know I can trust him completely. He puts my happiness first. He listens to me and respects my opinion. He makes me feel beautiful. He is never demanding. He gives everything a lot of thought, and it matters to him that he does the right thing. He makes me feel safe and loved and wanted, always.
ooh lovely thread.
My DP is wonderful and I love him because:
He's funny, intelligent, kind and caring. He supports me and make me feel so safe and cherished. He is sexy as can be and we are so well matched in bed he makes me weak at the knees just by holding my hand or giving me "that" look.
I admire his determination and his ambition. He's amazing with his kids and mine too.
I'm just so happy he's all mine
Painfully honest but never tells a lie
Suffers no fools
Wants to make me happy
Brilliant dad in so many ways
We have an equal partnership in childcare and household chores,
He is v handy around the house
Sexy and hot in bed
Lol at perfect cock. I once sent DH a text in the early days of our relationship saying I love your beautiful penis (I know I know), except I sent it to one of our mutual friends instead. He is a good man as he has forgiven me.
He's thoughtful, kind and loving. He's a great dad. Hes sensible and responsible (esp with money). He's funny and clever and good in bed. Pretty much feel like I struck gold most days.
He gets up to make me a cup of tea at the 3am feed even though I sneak out of bed to feed our son.
He also eats more chocolate then me!
He's just got in from work (works mostly 7days in dec due being the owner of a fab independent booze shop shop, immediately got stuck into the mountain of dishes without a word and made me, DS and my mum an awesome chorizo risotto which we washed down with a fairly extravagant bottle of wine he brought home, just coz.
Pretty much sums him up
Twinkly-eyed loveliness a bonus.
DP was sending some rude texts.... He said thinking of your mum makes me penis twitch..... He meant my bum (I hope!)
He always keeps it together in a crisis. However big ( uterine rupture and crash section; redundancy) or small (broken down fridge) and all the big and small things that life sends you in between; if I am flapping and crying anxiously, then DH is sorting it out.
Because, when he was made redundant when DD (our DC2) was 4 weeks old, he took a job he knew he would hate and did it, uncomplainingly for 18 months.
Intense up and down relationship with relatively new bf but sister suggested I think about his positives so in no particular order;
1. He is patient and supportive with my anxiety
2. He cries often
3. He lets his big feelings free all over my carefully constructed emotional walls
4. He is hairy like a wild animal
5. He is really silly
6. He loves, and can talk to, children
7. He is brave
8. He loves animals
9. The sex is always really good and he's really excited by my horrible overweight and post children body
10. He is dewy-eyed
11. He has swallowed a thesaurus
12. He loves cuddling
13. We have similar but different enough beliefs to make things interesting
14. He thinks creatively
15. He actively cares for people
16. He loves his mum and dad
17. He is enabling me to respect myself and expect respect from others
:-) everything, just everything! 27 years married and I love him sooo much still! Xx
He loves me for me.
He gave me 2 beautiful daughters.
He is an amazing daddy.
He introduced me to amazing music.
There is nothing i cant say to him (including bitching about mil )
He is on the same wavelength as me.
He makes me laugh every single day.
He takes my v complicated relationship with my family with a pinch of salt and suppports all my decisions, especially regarding our dd's.
He makes me feel loved and secure.
He never raises his voice with me or the girls, let alone anything else.
He doesnt piss anywhere hes not meant to
He's really, really funny and probably the cleverest person I've ever known.
He's so cute with our girls.
He's even more of a idealistic lefty than he was when we met.
He can do stuff I can't dream of (he's really musical, I'm tone deaf).
He doesn't take himself too seriously.
He's incredibly self-aware. Maybe that's why he doesn't take himself too seriously!
Oh and he's an incredible cook! I burn water.
He's funny and kind.
He also humours me, such as yesterday when I wanted to have a disco light show bath at midnight, even though there really wasn't enough room he got in, complete with his text Santa reindeer hat on, and we sat (un)comfortably drinking whisky and watching the lights.
He's just lovely.
Mine is gentle. I like hearing him talk to people. He is loving and clings on close to me. He is super talented and takes me everywhere with him. He encourages me. He is gorgeous and has a gorgeous bum!
Merry Christmas all!!!
He has integrity running through him like 'Blackpool' through Blackpool's peppermint rock; he is very amusing; he loves being with me and our DS and shows it by being at his most relaxed and happy; he is beautiful - and is maturing as pricelessly as a fine wine; he could not be a better supporter of me and of us all; he brings home the bacon without complaint as I re-train; he is universally liked by our friends in the face of his disbelief; I seriously can't imagine being with anyone else for the rest of my life. Lucky me!
Lovely thread - I hope I meet a man lik eone of these men one day lol!
Message withdrawn at poster's request.
He supports me with aged parents and additional woes.
He's a brilliant stepdad to my DDs - treats them as his own
Not a mean bone in his body - a real provider
Handsome and sexy. Really lovely eyes, and mouth..
Gives me a nice massage when stressed
A good cook
Pulls cooker, fridge, washing machine etc out to clean behind them
Slightly geeky, which I find endearing in lots of ways
Despite some things I dont like about him, the above are more than enough for me to love him deeply, especially the way he is with my DDs. Theyre so happy around him. He has my back in this life, would never let me fall..& Im the same with him. 1st hubby was crap...I lost a lump of stone and found me a diamond
Lovely comments there ladies they sound wonderful, shows all the good ones are taken ....can I ask, if you weren't physically attracted to them would you stay with them despite all the best bits?
Think ive gone beyond the point were we're only together through physical attraction, yes it helps but i cant imagine my life without him even his bad points
Can't imagine my life without him. Five years later, he still looks at me like I'm the best thing since sliced bread. The great sense of humour and mega cuddles dont hurt either.
Message withdrawn at poster's request.
He is kind
He is generous
He is clever
He is thoughtful
He has an enormous cock and knows how to use it.
This is going to sound so daft but it's his 'sleep face' that makes me feel all soft. He is one of those people that has a very mobile face - he's very expressive and his eyebrows are always all over the place
However when he's sleeping, his face is completely relaxed, just like a baby and he looks utterly content and peaceful.
He can make me howl with laughter in a way that no other person can.
He's an amazing cook.
He's 'manly' - hairy chest, knows how to fix a car, unblock a pipe, shin up a ladder, build stuff etc. <wobble>
Despite the 'manliness' he has the most hilarious sounding giggle I have ever heard.
He's not always easy to get along with - he can be very direct! - but he is always honest and I know that I can rely on him to tell me the truth about things, even when I don't want to hear it.
If I had to make a 3am "Bugger, where do I bury the body" phonecall, he would be there with a shovel, no questions asked
He is a big, hairy, macho bear of a man, who has absolutly no problem expressing all his feelings. He is highly communicative, I have never ever have to guess at what is going on in his head. He is sensitive to a fault. He has never stopped working on growing and overcoming the scars left by his childhood/adolecence/young adulthood with a very very severaly mentally ill mother.
He loves me. Heart and soul. Nothing held back. He can't go a day without telling me I am beuatiful and praising my values, principle and character. I have no intension of updating the perscription for his glasses, or pointing out how he glosses over the veritable flotilla of faults I have.
And he is the best father I have ever seen. I watch him and DS together and my heart sings. So attached, involved and loving. He is the complete opposite of my frigid, distant father. From 0-13 there is nothing he has shirked from doing for DS. He even did a stint as a SAHD so I could go back to work when he saw that being a full time SAHM was killing me. That is no small or easy choice to make in Italy, where SAHD are as common as unicorns and the very idea attracts crisitsm, derision and outright insult.
I knew he was going to be a star father the day I stood on a lecture stage in front of 500 teachers with the hump cos they had to be there. I could see him dealing with Worst Pureed Cauliflower Poo Explosion Eveh! just through the glass doors (the conference centre had locked the bathroom during talks...and then all the staff buggered off). Despite dealing with perhaps the worst smelling, most invasive poo DS had ever managed in his short life, he still looked up, blew me a kiss and mouthed "you will be fantastic. I love you" at me as I stood there quivering and overcome with stage fright. And it's all been uphill from there.
I love him so much. Perfect he is not. But he is perfect for me and DS.
1st hubby was crap...I lost a lump of stone and found me a diamond
^^That. Exactly that.
Second time lucky and all that jazz.
He shares my sense of humour and we've had a good giggle this morning at some of the smug postings. It may be xmas but still...wonder statistically how many posters will soon be posting on other threads and advised to LTB..
My hubby is currently in the kitchen peeling sprouts! Nuff said! :-D
He always puts me first
He makes me laugh
He never ever bears a grudge and when I do he makes me realise what an arse I'm being
He looks like a real uncaring bruiser but is unfailingly kind and thoughtful to other people
He thinks I'm beautiful even now I'm middle aged and plump
He's relentlessly practical. He can fix things and sort out problems.
He looks after me when I'm ill
If I look tired he offers to drive me into work, even if this means he has to reorganise his own day or inconvenience himself.
He has eyes that change from blue to green according to his mood
He's learnt to cook and clean and does a bloody good job
He's my best friend, I can be myself with him
He is incredibly sexy and handsome. An actual ex model (much unlike me). He is kind and caring and thoughtful. He has supported me through the worst year of my life and let's me talk about my ex (who died) without ever getting funny about it. He's funny and sweet and tells me he loves me every day. He's very sexy and great in bed. He's generous and buys thoughtful lovely gifts.
The only bad thing is he's not here with me today.
If it's possible, he adores & loves our children more than I do.
He is tolerant
Brilliant at anything diy
Loves me, shows it, tells me, means it.
Dunno, he is just so lovely.
He travelled halfway across the country to get me something id seen on a weekend away for my Christmas present.
She has been and still is an amazing mother to our 4 sons - all now grown up and flown the nest
She makes me laugh
I make her laugh
I can be myself in her company
She is my best friend
She gave me the thing I wanted most in life - a happy marriage, family and home
She has always supported me in my career ambitions and because of that, they have paid off
Her human qualities - the same qualities that make her a great mother make her good at her job (in education)
She has both feet on the ground and isn't high maintenance. She doesn't expect a great deal, which makes it enjoyable to do things for her
I could go on. She isn't perfect, nor am I, but the good points far outshine the others. We've been together 40 years, married 38 and I love her to bits
-He is the kindest man I've ever met
-He's not swayed by what other people think of him
-He's really quick witted and incredibly funny, he makes me belly laugh every day
-He's bloody lush! Big broad shoulders, muscly thighs and stunning eyes
-He makes me feel beautiful, even when I know I look rough
-He works really hard to make sure I never go without
-He puts me before him every single time
-He's no pushover, he doesn't put up with any of my nonsense!
-He loves our life together and our home
-He treats my family like his own
-He's always up for trying new things with me
-He's always bringing home presents when he goes out. Not big stuff, but a bar of chocolate or some bubble bath
-He's much nicer than I am
Ah this is lovely reading. I think my dh is quite nice too
I don't have an OH, but was really enjoying reading this thread.
This... He doesnt piss anywhere hes not meant to was hilarious as I'm surprised at how often it is a quality lacking in some women's OHs!!
