But nothing to do with physical beauty.

I just asked my bf this. I'll give you his answers after just want to gage some other responses first.

MrsAukerman Sun 26-Jul-15 21:12:29

"No, I refuse to bow to mumsnet"

Belaforreal Sun 26-Jul-15 21:15:00

Ahh be a sport grin

readyforno2 Sun 26-Jul-15 21:15:21

Haha Mrs, my dh is away atm but I've messaged him. I'll post when he gets back to me (if he's nice enough grin)

40somethingwonderful Sun 26-Jul-15 21:16:22

funny, caring, loyal, loving & happy

AgentProvocateur Sun 26-Jul-15 21:18:55

I'm very clever.
I'm good at organising social events.
I'm a great mum.
Everyone likes me and I have lots of friends.
I'm calm and laid back.
And, although it's breaking the "rules", I'm stunningly beautiful wink (I can assure you that I'm really not).

MrsAukerman Sun 26-Jul-15 21:21:07

It's dh who refuses to bow to mumsnet not me. He won't be budged.

Belaforreal Sun 26-Jul-15 21:21:20

Thanks Ready. 40 and Agent by hats lovely. I'll allow beauty as a 6th one smile

Soundofsettling Sun 26-Jul-15 21:23:07

Most beautiful smile
Best friend
Wonderful in bed
Nicest person he knows
Always puts other people first

Soundofsettling Sun 26-Jul-15 21:23:38

dun1urkin Sun 26-Jul-15 21:28:50

Now? He saidshock
I am very intelligent
I am very attractive
I am very well organised
I am his best friend
I am a cat lover
(And a bonus sixth, apparently my sausage is ready, too!)

LondonHuffyPuffy Sun 26-Jul-15 21:31:01

Ha! He was silent for several long moments after I asked him... so I said "is it that difficult to think of even one nice thing about me?!" At which point he laughed nervously and said the following:
Well organised
caring
smart
emotional... he changed that to "funny" quick fast grin
loveable and likeable

He's awesome!

toldmywrath Sun 26-Jul-15 21:32:03

Can I just say one? And then we laughed! (He didn't even say the one comment btw)

Iwasbornin1993 Sun 26-Jul-15 21:32:04

I have a quick witted sense of humour.
I always put others first.
I have strong family values.
I'm on the same wavelength as him so I always finish his sentences and vice versa.
I have an amazing smile that makes him happy just to see.

Apparently grin

By and large this board attracts posts from those whose relationships are in a state of conflict where asking a question such you've proposed is likely to elicit less than flattering responses.

Those who are conflicted look to responders here for support and advice and what they don't want to read is gushy mush from the loved up who can't stop cooing over each other as it can serve to make them feel infinitely worse about their own relationships, or lack of them.

The '5 nice things' can be an effective tool in couples counsellings but imo you should rephrase your question and post it on AIBU.

Toffeelatteplease Sun 26-Jul-15 21:32:55

Oh god, DP would have a field day with this. They utterly wouldn't fit the brief, highly unlikely to be accurate but would have decidedly amusing. hmmgrin

Belaforreal Sun 26-Jul-15 21:35:27

Ok. I got, after about 5 minutes silence: (in his exact words)

You always put others first
You seem interested when I talk
You're very pretty

Long silence, then I said take the beauty one out and he finished off with...

Yh, I'm still waiting for the for all five!!

Cunt would be the first on my list for him!

AgentProvocateur Sun 26-Jul-15 21:36:26

I think that's a bit unfair, Goddess - it's a "relationships" board, not "bad relationships".

Littlef00t Sun 26-Jul-15 21:43:27

Intelligent
Funny
Good in the sack wink cringe that one was for mnetters I think!
Good planner
My solemate aww

oohnewshoes Sun 26-Jul-15 21:45:38

Really nice person
excellent cook
give a lot of myself and expect nothing in return.
Very good at encouraging people.
very good dress scenes.

goddessofsmallthings Sun 26-Jul-15 21:46:30

Have you read the latest batch of posts, Agent?

I can be as Pollyannaish and probably more so as the next person but the joy of others is no comfort whatsoever to victims of domestic violence and those whose spouses/partners are philanderers/twunts of the first water.

I'll stick with my opinion that this question is best rephrased and posted on AIBU where I suspect it will turn into a classic. smile

QueenQueenie Sun 26-Jul-15 21:51:47

I quote:
"Good at swearing, intelligent, opinionated, stylish and a 'good eye'"!

LimeandTonic Sun 26-Jul-15 21:55:23

This is the first thing he said: What shite are you coming out with?
Then he said:
Intelligent
Funny
Good company
Make him feel good
Make him drink gin

Number four is a lie. I don't know how he could feel good with the way I treat him????

ijustwanttobeme Sun 26-Jul-15 22:19:29

So, DP said:

Always puts others first
A positive person
Well organised
Reliable

Then one other that made me look at him like hmm

You choose your friends for their personalities rather than their looks....
