Sorry.. I can't choose just one!

He has been my knight in shining armour many times, especially when some crisis hit like when the truck I used to have would break down. He'd drop everything and pick me up, have my truck towed and repaired.

When I'm upset to the point of crying, he stops everything to listen and help.

He has brought roses to my work place just to cheer me up.

And its a simple thing.. but sometimes he will just take my hand and kiss the back of it. Its the sweetest gesture.

My ex boyfriend was a prince.. We had a random discussion one day about those gold star stickers you get like in the 1st grade and how I had never gotten one, to which he replied but you deserve one! lol So from then on he would place those lil stickers everywhere! He would love to get clever so I would find them at random times, like he put them one on a rose, on the back of my credit card, pages in my school books, the glove box (lol you get the idea) Now everytime I see them I think of him with a smile...

The first of many sweetest things.....We had been dating for about 2 months and had a HORRENDUS visit from my monthly friend and it was BAD, excruciating cramps the whole deal, I called Marc and told him I had to cancel our plans for that night and I was bummed, but told him to go ahead and I would call him the next day.

So I came home from work to find him sitting on my front steps waiting for me with a dozen roses and a pint of ben and jerry's Cherry Garcia, he stayed in with me and did not let me lift a finger and rubbed my back, I knew right then and there he was a keeper and he has given me a million more reasons since then to think the same thing.

I know, I don't get flowers for valentines, I get them because I have a bad day, or just to tell me how awesome (lol) I am, or just because.....personally, I prefer it that way!

I will have to say one of the sweetest things my SO ever did , really wasnt even for me....

Just this past April it was my very pregnant sister's bday. She was turning 25yrs old and is having her very first baby. Well needless to say her (clears throat and rolls eyes) MAN (and I say that ever so lightly) didnt do anything for her. I mean not so much as to even be nice to her. Actually that every day he got in to a huge fight with my dad..she cried the whole nine,just a rotten day,poor sis..ANYWAYS..We are all sitting in the livingroom and I notice ,hey my baby is gone....I almost started to get angry cause we never leave without a kiss and an I LOVE YOU..(you never know what can happen)....When in he walks with a huge bag from kids footlocker and a bag from Babies R Us. He walks over gives her the biggest hug and gives her those two bags...IT was her daughters first outfit and her first pair of the cutest,tiny little sandals...He said " I love you sis"...she busted out crying! She was so moved, here she sits on her day with a rotten SO (you have no idea) and literally nothing for her lil girl and he comes in with that, it was totally unexpected and sweet!

He is amazing the way he cares for other people and how compassionate he is....got to be one of the best qualities he has!

Aw, such warm stories! I love hearing about the positive things of humanity. My BF will do little things for me, or bigger things, like surprising me with tickets to a concert.

We recently had a conversation about something he thinks he needs to do to step up his game with his business. He explained there may be times he'll be preoccupied with it, so he wanted to give me a heads up I guess. Long ago I decided I was ok with him being so driven with his career; it ensures I have me-time, space, and time for my art.

I told him I understood and as long as he didn't become a workaholic & we still got to see each other, all was good. He said that I was a priority to him and the only person he had to be with. For him to say that & express the commitment, may not have been romantic but made me feel good about how far we've come & how his heart has opened.

For me it isn't the action that I find sweet, it is the intent.

My husband does all of the sweet things that build romance. Flowers for no reason, impromtu foot rubs, unexpected dates, etc...

What is so sweet about everything that he does is that he does it with such a giving spirit, and is so pleased when his actions make me smile, laugh, cry..whatever...

He had a surprise 40th birthday party for me last year, and I was SO touched that he'd gone to so much trouble to make it a perfect, special night. But what made it so perfect was that he was sincerely and genuinely moved to tears by MY appreciation.

He spoils me to an embarassing degree, and he always says that it is a pleasure to do nice things for me, and to make sure I am well taken care of because I make it so worth it. And I know exactly where he is coming from because I feel the same way. Even making his favorite dessert on Sunday or whatever is so rewarding because you can tell that he just appreciates the gesture so much.

So to make a short story long....everything he does is the sweetest thing he's ever done!
