11 Things He Does That Makes You Feel Like The Luckiest Girl In The World

Despite all evidence to the contrary, there are some great guys out there. When you’re in a good relationship, there’s nothing better. Here are some examples of the ways in which an amazing guy makes you feel special:

  1. He puts you first. You’re the most important part of his life (0r at least at the top of the list), and he makes sure you know it. You can tell in the little things he says and does that he wants to ensure your happiness and well-being, even if that occasionally means making a few sacrifices. He knows you’d do the same for him, so he doesn’t think twice about putting you first when it matters most.
  2. He actually listens. I’m not talking about pretending to pay attention while you complain and inserting a few sympathetic noises here and there. He actually cares about what you have to say, and he gives you considerate and thoughtful input and feedback so you know he’s actually absorbed and thought about what you’ve been saying. He cares enough to ask about what’s on your mind rather than just waiting for you to spill your guts and when you do, he’s right there for you.
  3. He’s your biggest cheerleader and #1 supporter. You’re a strong woman, but sometimes you need a little support and he’s happy to be there for you when you do. He doesn’t see it as a sign of weakness — he actually feels honored that you feel safe enough to be vulnerable around him. He knows that isn’t something to be taken lightly, and he does whatever he can to support you and cheer you on along the way.
  4. He actually gets off his ass to help you out. You love being self-sufficient and handling everything on your own but sometimes it gets tiring. Luckily, your guy is always happy to get off his ass and help out, whether it be helping prepare a meal or fixing something around the house. It’s nice to have an extra pair of hands involved, especially if you are vertically challenged! He knows you can take care of business yourself but he wants to help.
  5. He does stuff without you having to ask. You often don’t even get a chance to ask him to do anything because he’s often one step ahead of you. He anticipates your needs without smothering you, nurtures you without making you feel childish and helps out with responsibilities to lighten your load a bit. See, romance isn’t dead.
  6. He remembers the little things. Again, he actually listens to you and pays attention. You know this because he knows which flavor of Ben & Jerry’s you like, how you take your coffee and that you can’t stand when your food touches on the plate. He doesn’t have to ask you the same question over and over again because he was listening the first time you answered. He’s a keeper.
  7. He does nice things for you for absolutely no reason. Well, that’s not entirely true. The reason is that he loves you, appreciates you and knows how lucky he is to have you. That’s why he treats you with the affection and care that you deserve. We’re not talking about flowers and chocolates — more like he remembers to pick up the dry cleaning or notices that you’re almost out of your favorite granola so he picks up more before the box is empty.
  8. He makes it clear that you’re the only one he wants. Everyone has had relationships where things seemed good but you always had an inkling of doubt that he was just waiting for something better to come along. That’s not the case with this guy. You know when he’s with you, he doesn’t have eyes for any other girl. You’re perfect for him, so why would he waste his time looking elsewhere? It’s an amazing feeling to be completely loved and desired.
  9. He loves the things you hate about your body. He’s not just interested in your body when you’re having sex and he doesn’t ever treat you like an object. He truly loves your body and thinks your self-proclaimed flaws are sexy as hell. He can never keep his hands off you, not because he’s trying to get you into the bedroom but because he really loves being physically close to you.
  10. He knows you can protect yourself but he wants to do it anyway. It’s not because you’re weak; it’s because he loves you and would do anything for you. No matter how strong and independent you are, it feels good to have someone care for you enough to defend and protect you. It allows you to feel safe and secure in your relationship.
  11. He wants you around for every important moment in his life. If the two of you aren’t together, it’s almost as if it didn’t happen. If somehow you aren’t able to be together when something big or important is happening, you’re the first person he wants to tell all about it so that it seems like you were. Having you by his side makes his joys complete, and you know that you’re the one thing in his life he considers to be worth celebrating at all times. Nothing could feel better than that.
