Bren... Although I don't have a significant other per say... I would have to say that would have won my heart too.. @ Kate, a man that reads = super sexy..

You say you want a cheeseburger but all I hear is "I need love" - a comic strip on the fridge at work.

You have failed only when you quit trying. Until then, you're still in the act of progression. So, never quit trying and you'll never be a failure.

It was the mid-90's when I was 17 and he was 19 and I was at a club that had a teen night. The DJ kicked on Sex Pistols and out comes this guy to the middle of the dance floor... wearing plaid Converse, striped socks, plaid shorts, and a striped shirt (yes, plaid - stripe - plaid - stripe) ... singing his heart out just like Johnny Rotten. I fell in love that night. I am not a huge Sex Pistols fan, but his creative style and goofy confidence pulled me in. I am a sucker for weird guys. Smile

My husband proposed to me by saying "There has been an anthrax outbreak - Heres a bottle of Levaquin - Open it up." And the ring was in there. And I still said yes......

I have to agree with Feisty about your man RedHolly that amount of confidence is super sexy!

My husband is nicknamed Buckethead because of his XXL hat size, but it was his great big ole countryboy heart that sold me on him. He wooed me like crazy....cooked for me, wrote me love letters & poetry, flowers, the whole nine yards. But it was the Valentine's day that he came into my office with flowers in one hand, chocolates in the other, and his guitar slung over his shoulder and completely surprised me as he proceeded to serenade me with Merle Haggard's "Valentine" in front of all my coworkers that cinched the deal. He can ride the wave of those brownie points for years to come....what a sweetheart!

One day we were laying around and he told me that he had a kilt and was going to wear it to his wedding. I've got a thing for men in kilts. I was sold before but it certainly cemented him with me.

Oh, so, so many different things. But one of the first was just before we started dating, we would go trail running together and when I got tired he would give me piggy back rides. Smile

He keeps me on my toes...
He has a way of catching me completely off guard with suprises. I'm a hard person to suprise becuase i'm so nosey. In fact he's the only one thats ever been able to really suprise me. like this Valintine's day when he showed up at my office with the most gorgeous boquet i've ever seen. I didnt think he had gotten me anything!

Well, there are so many things - I'll boil it down to the fact that he treats me like a queen. Especially when we started dating - he would do ANYTHING for me. This included going along on a cross-stitch convention trip! I warned him that he was headed into the "estrogen ocean" - but he still wanted to go! WOW!

Before we started dating, he was afraid of dogs and generally didn't like them. With me being a huge nerd for canine behavior and training, I didn't think it would last and it would end up just being a fun friend thing. After a few weeks he fell in love with my boxer. After she came down with cancer, he set up a website for donations to help pay for her surgery. When she died before we could set up the appointment, he cried as hard as I did.

We're both nerds. He'll sit and play games with me and we'll rant about the days of 8bit. Whenever I find a good sci fi or fantasy novel, he sets it up to read on his Kindle so I can have someone to talk to about my favorite characters. He went from not being comfortable around animals to adopting his own cat and helping me train our two dogs. I have an awesome partner.
Forward momentum!

WoW...I loved reading all of these...especially yours fiesty! I just started dating someone and he sounds a lot like your husband back in the day!

I don't know if we'll work out...too soon to tell, but 1) I've never had a guy sing while slow dancing with me and he did (we met a few wks ago)
2) He works 3rd shift and last Sunday he wanted to take me out for Valentine's day so he took a vacation day
3) today he drove an hour to come see me on my 45min lunch...

We live 45mins apart, i work 9-5 and he works 3rd shift and he has 2 lil girls and I have 1 lil girl...TIGHT schedules and he said he wants to make a point of seeing me at least once a week...I'm trying not to let my hopeless romantic side take over buuuut he's making it hard!Very Happy

It was 1986, Superbowl party, Patriots v Bears. He walked in with a mutual friend. I caught sight across the room of this 6'2" dude in a Stetson, Tony Llamas, 501's and suede fringed jacket....YIKES!!! My girlfriend said, "gee, who is that guy"? and I said "I don't know but I am gonna marry him!!!" We have been together since that night and here we are 25 years later as Mr and Mrs looking forward to retirement together!
