So men what does your SO do that shows you appreciation?

Appreciation - is it actions, more sex, verbal? What does the W or SO do that to you specifically it shows she really appreciates you?

Takes good care of me, makes me food I like, keeps herself fit and attractive, is supportive and encouraging, indulges my fantasies, still thanks me for taking her out for a nice dinner, spontaneous blow jobs.

Re: So men what does your SO do that shows you appreciation?

Does not take me for granted (within reason). Is willing to take care of me (I am rather independent so that is why I say willing). Makes an effort to take care of herself. Does not put me down or belittle me. Gets me stupid little crap that others wouldn't quite appreciate but makes me smile (things simple as a bag of nerds and chapsticks as part of my birthday presents ). Makes maintaining a healthy sex life a priority (I would say this is more of an ideal but probably the one item that has been an on and off issue for a while, however she listens and just doesn't blow me off when we talk about). Watches all my stupid sci fi shows lol.

Re: So men what does your SO do that shows you appreciation?

to quote a tom petty song; 'she lets the little things go'.

she never makes a big deal about minor things. like yesterday when i picked up chinese, and forgot to get her hot mustard, she just said 'that's ok honey'.

actually, my wife treats me like a king (king jorge), and after 4+ years with her, i still don't know why, because i don't deserve it.

i'm waiting for the day she finally wakes up and realizes i'm not the guy she has put on the pedestal after all.

She complains about something else that I didn't do to her satisfaction.

Passive aggressive and emotionally unavailable (whatever that means)

yes to all. though it follows in order of my needs on a his needs/her needs basis - sex/touch is my #1 and words of affirmation is my #2.

Re: So men what does your SO do that shows you appreciation?

I tell my hubby all the time how much I appreciate him and all he does for me, and he knows that I never take him for granted - he actually said that the other day. He said I make him feel special

I also make his fav foods, and lots of little things like his morning coffee (he loves that, don't know why really, it's just coffee, lol), send him a text or two with kisses during the day. He loves it when I've made his dinner if I'm not home when he gets home and put a little heart on the note with the instructions on how to reheat it.

I left a couple of forms that needed his signature on the table one morning with a sticky note saying "Sign me you sexy beast!" he roared laughing, hehehe!

If I was single I'd be asking if she had a sister...

Scratch the sister. Three words: Stem cell clone.

Even if I don't get likes for it, I'm still going to say it.

Re: So men what does your SO do that shows you appreciation?

I wake him up with a neck rub and a glass of water because I know he will be thirsty. Then I make him breakfast. I compliment him and tell him how hot and how intelligent he is multiple times a day. I clean up his random messes and keep track of his stuff. Foot rubs, massages, lots of sex, BJ's, etc.

Follow the evidence where it leads and question everything.

If the tech were there, I'd consider it. The threesomes would be awesome!!

She does have a sister who is single, but they are not at all alike. So yes, scratch the sister.
