He’s receptive to feedback. There’s not much you’d change about him, but when you tell him something he did bothered you, he listens and makes an effort to be better.
You feel no shame talking about how happy you are around friends. When you talk about this guy, you’re talking about some great thing he did recently, or how nice your weekend away was.
You trust him to run your errands for you. This may seem small, but a guy who can pick up that thing you forgot at the grocery store (without complaining) or grab the dry cleaning you keep neglecting is true marriage material.
He feels totally comfortable as your plus one in all situations. Work drinks that you already know will be stiff and awkward? No problem. Best friend’s birthday dinner where he knows you’ll probably be too busy to actually hang out with just him? Great!
He always brags about you. If you get a promotion at work or even just win concert tickets, he can’t resist telling everyone you hang out with before you even think to mention it. Because he’s your biggest fan (arguably next to your mom).
He makes sacrifices for youand you’re happy to do the same for him. He’ll move cities to live with you if you get a new job or finish grad school. You’re happy to make the next move for one of his opportunities.
When you think about marrying him, the best part isn’t the wedding; it’s the idea of spending your lives together.The wedding is fun, but you really can’t wait for the two weeks right after when you’ll get uninterrupted honeymoon time.
