1. He knows what you want without you even having to say a word.
I’ll never forget the day I realized this, because it was a hot day at the ballpark. It was the kind of day you wished you were in the shade at a baseball game but instead you were out in the open sun getting pounded on by the beast that is the sun. The kind of day when you know that you’re going to be sunburnt no matter how much sunscreen you put on. The kind of day where you’re walking around on a broken foot, but we’ll get to that story another time. It’s hot. Everyone’s a little miserable, but we’re all having a great time watching the game. Beeble disappears to go to the restroom. I look to my best friend, and I say something along the lines of, “If he really knows me and really loves me, he’ll bring me back a frozen lemonade.” It was probably another 5 minutes before he reappeared frozen lemonade in hand. This was definitely one of those moments when I knew we were on the same wavelength and thus perfect for each other.
2. He drives an hour just to meet you for lunch.
After I moved in with him in January, I assumed that lunch dates were probably in the past. When I lived in LA, he would come up pretty frequently and just work from a nearby area until I got off work. It made sense, and he could then spend the evening with me too. I mean who wants to battle LA traffic just to see anyone for an hour? Beeble that’s who. I can’t say that I wouldn’t do the same, but logistically it seems like a nightmare.
3. He buys you tickets to this concert.
Imagine yourself opening an email to see that a band is playing in your area and mentioning it to your significant other. Now imagine that band is Macaulay Culkin’s Velvet Underground Pizza Themed Cover Band. Does your significant other buy you tickets? Mine did! I’d say that the night was certainly an adventure even if I didn’t actually get to see said band. The commute for my job is pretty terrible, and I was exhausted long before they came on that night. I did get free pizza, sit with Mac mere inches from me, and squeal like a young girl having just watched My Girl.
4. He sits through this non air conditioned comedy show.
Picture it late June in Los Angeles. This means that temperatures are really gearing up to the high 90s especially in the Valley. You’ve been looking forward to this comedy show for MONTHS, and you walk into the venue only to find out that their a/c is out and has been all day. Do you stay? You’re probably thinking that this some hot comedian like Daniel Tosh or Gabriel Iglesias, but you’d be wrong. This is a night of The Weasel. Yeah, you heard me. I’d been waiting months to see none other than Pauly Shore. Now most people probably left that night with their free ticket to see someone else, but not me or Beeble. He suffered through the extraordinary heat so that I could yet again squeal like a school girl. You’ll be glad to know that he was practically molested that night, but it wasn’t by me!
5. He puts the lotion on the skin.
Alright ladies we all know that winter months and super dry summers cause the driest of skin. We all know that sometimes it’s unbearable. Never fear! If you have the greatest other half in the world then he looks at your dry skin and offers to put the lotion on. Not just any lotion. It’s that good smelling stuff you’ve collected for months from Bath and Body Works.
6. He builds you a place to put your iPad in the kitchen for recipes.
He knows you love to cook, and he’s watched you covet one of those things for months. He puts his head into figuring out a solution and wah-lah you know have a trusty place to put your ipad and read recipes while you’re working in the kitchen. It’s a lifesaver.
7. You like what show?
You’re obsessed with cooking reality competition shows. He hates Guy Fieri and Rachel Ray? Who cares? He sits down with you weekly and watches that one show that they both host. That one where you watch Tori Spelling’s husband annihilate the competition. The one where you see Lou Diamond Phillips in a whole new light. The one where Coolio actually has chops. Yep, you guessed it. I love Celebrity Cook Off. It’s so good though. I also watch Worst Cooks In America, and Next Food Network Star. Luckily for me he already watched The Taste and Masterchef.
8. What do you mean you don’t want anything we have in the fridge/freezer?
None of it sounds good. You’re starving. You start ticking off things aloud that sound better. Well it’s a good thing the grocery store is close, and I’ve got a really understanding man who will go to the grocery store and get those things. Okay it’s not really as bad as it sounds. It’s usually we’re missing one or two ingredients for something that sounds really tasty, and we’re usually both in agreement.
9. He knows your nickname is Imelda
He’s not going to try and change you. He’s merely into discussing and helping you with storage solutions for the ever growing shoe collection. Mine isn’t quite as bad as Imelda’s…..yet.
10. He bought you this video game.
You’re a girl. You grew up on a farm. Your favorite video game was Harvest Moon. It’s a video game where a little farm boy tries to get a girl to marry him and make a baby within a 2 year timespan. It wasn’t really that part of the game I liked so much as the farming. So when you find out that Farming Simulator is a legit game that exists in the world, you are so stoked. Not only does your fiance go out and find it in the world, but he takes you out to this nice dinner and gives it to you as the coolest present ever. This happens the week before he proposes so you’re really thinking that he’s going to propose that night, but instead it’s Farming Simulator!!!!
In all honesty though, you know you’ve got the best fiance when he loves and supports you in everything that you do. He knows you like the back of his hand. The best part is though that you are the same way about him.
