So...a thing that happened

April 8, 2022

My boyfriend (24M) and I (25F) say what our favorite part of the day was to each other every night before we go to sleep. Two days ago his favorite part of the day made me feel like I'm doing something right!

Some background: my boyfriend has been working really long hours this week for both of his businesses. He loves to cook, but he's been tired and getting home late. The other day he came home right as I was finishing cooking dinner. I greeted him with a "Perfect timing! Dinner is done!" and he smiled at me. We enjoyed dinner and conversation and I let him talk about his day. It was a great evening. That night when we were saying our favorite part of the day he said coming home to me and dinner and not having to worry was his best part of the day. I felt so accomplished. I provided that comfort for him.

The next day (yesterday) my boyfriend came home and I went to go greet him, as usual. He had a huge bouquet of yellow flowers in his hand (my favorite color) and I still get so happy thinking about it! He said it was a thank you and a sorry for not being home much. I just about melted. He is such a bright spot in my life.

So...yeah. That happened!

Men crave positive reinforcement, acknowledgement, and support, but will not ask for them. Too many women believe that because they don't ask for/demand them, they don't appreciate them or need them.

You just found out the truth of it. Good for you. Keep it up.

I definitely did and plan on keeping it up!

I'm a guy, married, 2 kids. Your spot on.

So, in the home, women set the tone. Very often, they do not necessarily affirmatively understand this, but it is so. If you send your husband/bf out in to the world feeling good, like he has the heart of a CHAMPION, then he will do better for the family in the world. Try it, as the OP did, and see the results.

My man works like a mule too (happily for us, he reports). It is so very important for us to take care of the domestic tasks like the meal/cleaning etc. When I make him a good meal, everybody wins. So glad yours is appreciating you and showing you how much he sees your work toward him!

You're so right! And he makes me feel wanted and loved every day. I try not to take it for granted haha.

A good solid man is a gift not a right. It's earned and success is a reflection of how much we are nurturing that. <3

Awww your story is so sweet!

My partner is similar in the sense that he works really long hours too and when he comes home, he’s completely exhausted. I love being able to give him small comforts to take away the stress when he walks through the door. Like yesterday, he came home with one of his colleagues but had to continue working close to midnight in prep for a launch project. When he got in, I already prepped his dinner ready and served it to him before he got to working. He turned to his colleague and said, “I’m a lucky man.”

Still making me all fuzzy and smiley today

This is adorable. I'm gonna steal your idea, it's such a sweet thing to share and the day ends on a positive note!

[–]Automatic-Praline568[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Yes, exactly! When I brought it up to him that I do that he immediately started doing it too. Some (very tired) nights he even reminds me to acknowledge my favorite part of the day. :)

Having a soft place to land after a hard day is really important to men. Congrats on being the best part of your man's day. That's definitely an awesome feeling.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
