26 Perks of Being in a Serious Relationship in Your 20s

What Things Do You Do to Make Your Significant Other Happy?

Do Tell: What Do You Do Just For Him?

Do you hate sports but watch them anyway because your boyfriend asks you to? Or do you cheat on your diet so he can have someone to share a pizza with? In relationships, you have to give and take even if the giving is sometimes painful! I asked you what embarrassing things you ask of your significant other, but now let me ask you to tell me all the things that you do for him!

These make me laugh ! As for myself, I watch him play Call of duty on his playstation, I listen to him talk about golf just about 24/7 because he truly is obsessed with the sport...Though it's all in good spirits that I do these things because I love him and I know he appreciates it.

Hahaha these stoies are all so funny and cute, they all remind me of my boyfriend too. I sit through hours and hours of him talking about poker..he's obsessed.. and after a big game with his friends he feels he has to tell me every card he got, and how he got a "flush" or a "pair" or a "bad beat", when i don't know what any of these things mean! But I listen, and I smile, and nod, becaus I love him :)

My boyfriend is a jazz trumpet player, mainly inspired by those from the swing and bebop eras, so I listen to him talk endlessly about jazz music and musicians. Lately I've been letting him read excerpts from Miles Davis' autobiography to me and if he laughs at a story, I chuckle also, even though I have no idea why it's supposed to be funny. Did you know Bud Powell used to walk around with a smile on all day and he never spoke a word to anyone and one time Charlie Somethingorother went up to him and asked "Bud, what you always smilin' at, man?" and bud said, "You." HAAAAAH! Yeah I don't get it either. But sometimes I even ask him questions and he is more than happy to answer them. He gets so excited, the dear.

Biggest thing is probably multiple football games during a weekend...HOWEVER a) he has not pushed any of the games unless it's a Pats game and b) he watches re-runs of ANTM on VH1 with me. It's a great trade off ;-)

The biggest thing I ever did for him was move to a really shitty small town in the midwest for a year - but it was really only for a year, and after that we moved to NYC. But. On an ongoing basis, the weirdest thing I do for him is fold laundry. I usually do all the laundry, but, if for some weird reason he has done it, he HATES to fold it, and always asks me to do it, and I always say yes.And. In return - besides supporting me in the manner inwhich I have become accustomed - he buys me flowers almost every week, puts up with me asking if I look good, and tells me he loves me all the time.

I watch sports with him. Or go see a movie I know he'd prefer to watch. I cook him a big breakfast whenever he stays over my place. And dinners, and lunch, come to think of it. I bake him cookies and slices to take home with him after he visits me on the weekend. I play with his pet ferret (who bit me on the breast the first time I met him!). I give him massages. I listen to him talking about cars. The list goes on! I do all this with pleasure though, as I love him and he always returns the favour without ever complaining. For example, he did four hours of hard gardening and pruning for me last weekend with me asking (or even hinting!). So ya, I'm happy to give him a back rub or two. :)

I visit his cousins and uncles houses, and listen to the women gossip, which is really annoying.

I kiss him early in the morning when he has morning breath, even though my form of birth control (Implanon implant) makes me highly nauseous when I smell things like that. He has no idea.

Oh yes, I thought of something else... Tool shopping. He's a mechanic so tools are very important to him. But I can only tolerate it for 10-15 minutes before I start whining and then wander off to find something more interesting to shop for.

Bad action movies much? But he watches mine too. We don't really put each other through anything terribly unpleasant, but there have been some hours of my life watching Drunken Master and Crank that I won't get back.

Marynanabananas, that's what friends are for! Grab a bunch of girlfriends, go out to dinner and eat all the cheesy enchiladas that you can stomach :-)I hate mushrooms but he loves them so if I order something with mushrooms (like pizza), I just pick them out. If he orders food with mushrooms, he'll tell them to hold the mushrooms. It's all about compromise.
