Sweet things you do for or with your partner?

P'Gell P'Gell
I like to hear about people's relationships. I've asked questions about "playing" and like that.

Now, I want to know, what "sweet things" do you do for your partner or does s/he do for you? Just little things are fine.

I like to kiss My Man after we've made love and he's asleep. He always responds by kissing me back, sometimes he grabs me. I also will take care of his penis, if he has gotten sore (he had a yeast infection that turned bacterial a while back and gets sore from time to time) by putting hydrocortisone on it, after he has fallen asleep. I like to make his plate at dinner, and make his lunch for the next day.

He does things like bring me water (I drink about a gallon or more of water a day, so I always need some) I just love it when he walks by and places his hand on the small of my back. It's just so intimate, and nobody knows. He brings me little candy bars and will bring me an ice pack when I have a migraine. He also puts air in my tires and gas in my car, without being asked. It sounds dumb, bu I really appreciate it. I HATE pumping gas. Sometimes he even hands me the remote and says "Put on whatever you want." sometimes even during Sports. *Gasp*

What do you and your Significant Other do for each other to keep things sweet?

We exchange numerous gestures of affection. For example, I make her cappuccino and bring it to her in bed, and I ask her what she wants for dinner before I begin cooking. As does your Man, I give her caresses and kisses just because she is beautiful and I love her.

What does she do? Many, many things, but my favorite is when she smiles at me because she is happy to be with me. She is an amazing woman; she is funny, smart, loving and I am a lucky man.

We try to take time to appreciate each other daily. We don't take each other for granted and we're careful to be respectful with each other. We don't tell each other that their ideas are stupid, even if we don't agree with them, we try to see each other's side but then explain ours as well. Just that makes me so much happier with him because I know that he respects me, and he knows I respect him.

He'll make dinner for me, and breakfast for me on our days off. He actually cooks far more often than I do.

We always say I love you when getting off the phone and we always kiss each other good bye even if we're just running to the corner store for a soda.

There's chores that we each hate doing, so over the years we've kind of both taken over things that the other hates, or things that we don't feel the other does as well. For example he says I don't load the dishwasher effectively, so rather than argue about it he just does it. I don't like the way he does laundry because he never folds it, so rather than argue about it..I do the laundry. Simple things like this resolve a lot of tension and it's still "fair" since he does the dishes and I do the laundry..they're both things that need to be done daily and we both like things done OUR way, so we just do it. Even though that might seem mundane, it's important to me because it shows how we've learned to work with each other seemlessly and avoid conflict with each other. We work at home and so we're with each other 24/7. Learning how to be with each other ALL the time takes a lot of work because you don't really get a break from each other and so you have to be conscious of how your actions affect the other at all times.

We tend to do chores and tell the other what we did so they know we're making an effort for each other.

I like kissing the tip of my mns cock after he's given me an awesome orgasm. I'll also get him water and take care of him when he is sick. He works physically so I often massage his back to relive tension.

My man gets me surprise treats when he knows I have cravings. He makes dinner for me when he knows I'm too busy with school work to do it myself. He's such a trooper and often feels like he asks more of me than I do of him but we're very equal in how much we do and ask of each other.

I think not taking each other for granted is such a good tip. No, not a "tip" I think it's the foundation of a lasting relationship.

I saw something on an other site about the benefits of being monogamous, and I didn't agree with all of them. One of them (it was directed at women) promoted the idea that you didn't have to worry about your appearance anymore. I completely disagree. For years, I DID take his attraction to me for granted. (He thinks I'm hot with few reservations, which is really nice.) But, after a while, I realized I wanted to take better care of myself, for him, and also, as I get older, I didn't like the fact that in some situations I felt invisible, especially to younger men. But, it's mostly for him that I try to take care of myself. I dress sexy for him, I put on make up (which he says he doesn't care about, but thinks I'm not feeling well if I don't have any on ) I have realized that this is important to us, as we are a really physical couple (we also relate intellectually and emotionally of course) and as men are visual, I take the time to do what turns him on.

I also, like you (and many others) let him know I appreciate him all the time. That he supports our family, that he loves me, that he tells me I look good, or smell good, or other things.

It has got to be difficult sometimes, if you two are together all the time. Sometimes I sigh with relief when he leaves for work on Monday, after a long weekend even more. I LOVE him totally, but he's an intense man. I get a lot of that "Hey, what are you doing?" ALL the time. If he isn't working on something, he's wandering around the house looking for me. So, I admire your ability to keep things good, when you two are both home all the time. I'm sure it's a challenge AND a pleasure. Sometimes, when he leaves for work after a long weekend, I'm almost in tears, especially if we had a really nice time together when he was home.

Thanks, Alicia.

The other replies are really good. Keep them coming, guys.

We write each other notes daily. We don't live together but I make him lunch for work and he comes over in the morning to spend a little time with me and get his lunch and he always leaves a little note somewhere in my truck for me so I see it when I leave for work, and I put a note in his lunch. He also goes to my apartment before I get home from work and takes out my garbage and recycling so that I don't have to go back outside once I'm home.

That's really sweet!

When I know I'm going to be out of town and he can't come with, I hide little notes here and there in the bedroom for him to find. He loves finding them, and often re-hides them so that he can find them again later, lol.

Other things we do are the gentle caresses before falling asleep, I do the dishes between jobs sometimes, and he'll put away laundry for me (I hate putting away laundry).

She comforts me when I'm sad, and drives me everywhere (I don't drive and we live in Jersey), she tells me to shut up if I'm putting myself down, and pats my tummy when it hurts. She brushes my hair for me (which sounds silly, but I really appreciate it)

At first it was a bit rough working together, I have to admit. We actually shared the bedroom as our office back then. It just got too much, having him always around..having to listen to him while he works (he manages a team of people and part of that is being a "cheerleader" for them of sorts and the overdone enthusiasm would get on my nerves sometimes..and he's REALLY loud) and being around each other IN THE SAME ROOM all the time was just too much. Now he works upstairs and I work downstairs and it puts a little buffer between us.

And yea, I think that the people who fully let themselves go because they don't "have to impress anyone" are the people who find themselves in the end not attracted to their partner or not having an active sex life anymore..because both partners have just stopped caring and that's just not sexy. We go to the gym together, I do my makeup (he says he doesn't care if I wear makeup or not but he seems more attracted to me if I wear it and I feel more attractive in it..so who knows maybe he does like it or maybe he can just sense that I feel sexier in it so my attitude changes) and try to do my hair at least SOMEWHAT, and we try not to look like complete slobs LOL

That's so sweet.

I often leave a Puff's tissue with my lipstick print on it lying around. I put them on his pillow or on his chair in the living room. He usually gets a smile out of it.

He went away on a Men's Weekend last summer, and I put on my "Cocksucker Red" lipstick (nice, huh? That's the nice way My Man talks.) and blotted it and put the tissue in his bag right before he left.

When he got back, he didn't say anything about it. I asked if he saw it and he said, "Oh, I though a dirty kleenex got in there. I threw it away." Sheesh. He's clueless often!

At least you have a floor to get some privacy. I ADORE My Man, but he tends to drive me crazy if he's around all the time. I do like his vacations, though. Since the economy got bad, we really don't go anywhere for more than a weekend. But, he gets almost 5 weeks vacation (been at his job more than 25 years) so he has a lot of time at home. He usually finds some project (like fixing and painting the outbuildings, instead of working on his Wind Power Generator, like he was supposed to be doing) so we often look for ways to not be in each other's way all the time.

But, I do get that, "P'Gell? P'Gell, baby? What are you doing? What are you doing? Are you going out? Why are you upstairs? When will you be back?" He's like a giant three year old.

We are very affectionate people in general, But I like to show I care by doing little things for him, making sure dinner is made at a reasonable hour ( like before 9 pm LOL) or making coffee and fixing it just right for him, or even little things like making sure he doesn't need to do laundry for work and making the bed etc... I like to think of myself as a Domestic Goddess... lol

We're both really affectionate with each other. We always appreciate the other's company and simply enjoy being around one another.

In the morning we share our dreams.

If I sleepover his house on weekdays, he gets up much earlier than I do, and he usually leaves breakfast waiting for me.

If we're going a long distance and he's driving, I'll usually rub his neck or shoulders because I know he gets uncomfortable.

We take turns treating each other to meals.

I always tell him, "You're the best." And he responds with "Only the best for you."

We get in to tickle fights all the time (which is more him tickling me because he's mostly not ticklish and is so much bigger and stronger that I don't stand a chance).

He sends me pictures of cute animals when I'm doing schoolwork or before he goes to bed.

Etc., etc., etc.

We end every electronic conversation (not face to face) with a truly sincere "I love you" because it may be the last thing that we hear from the other if something ever happened to one of us (this is significant since I had a near-death experience with her present). I send her hand writtien letters for no particular reason. I buy her little gifts (<$25) that I think she will like for no particular reason. Give her a foot rub when she is laying on the couch with her legs on my lap. Always open her car door for her to get into and out of the car. Soap her back in the shower. Apply her body lotion to her skin after most showers. Those are some of them...

I do that too, but I mean it whole heartedly everything time I say those words anyway.

I just do little unexpected things, like once i spent 40 mins texting him I love you in 100 different languages so he would get it all once when he finished work

My darlin always gets bites of my smoothies, random cuddles and lap-sitting...when I'm away I always try my best to make sure that we're able to get in contact somehow (be it texts, calls or even snail mail). I do try to verbally remind him of how much I admire him, but sometimes I feel as though he's far better with the "sweet things" than I am.

I do excel at giving random BJs, though. *laughs*

Ah the tickle fights, haven't had one in while.

The one new thing we do is cuddle after dinner while we watch tv. My new favorite moment of the day.

if my bf does his laundry when i'm at his place, i fold his clothes for him. i'll even clean his room every now & then if it's a little out of hand. sometimes i eat some of his food, so i'll go out later & buy him replacements like a big bag of chips even though i ate a few handfuls. i made him an easter basket this yr w/ different candy & a few small toys. he thought that was cute & still sprays me w/ the silly string sometimes. i'll rub his back sometimes for no reason, too. occasionally, i'll send him a text telling him i love him & that i hope he has a great day. he always comments on how i spoil him & how he'll never find another girl who can take his crazy nut job personality (he can be a little crazy & hyper when we're alone, but i'm ADHD, so i roll w/ it, it's fun). he doesn't do quite as much for me, but he's getting a little better. i don't complain, though. i do this kind of stuff for him b/c i love him, not b/c i expect the same from him.
