What Makes You Love Your Significant Other Even More?

I watched the Golden Globes with a group of loud friends on Sunday so last night, after watching highlights from the big show, I was glad to finally hear Kate Winslet's acceptance speech. Through her emotional words, she was able to passionately tell her husband and director of Revolutionary Road, that she loved every second of working with him on the film and that it made her love him more.

Being able to fall in love with your significant other over and over again must be one of the secrets to having a long-lasting, successful relationship. So tell me, what are the little things that make you love your partner even more than you already do?

I misnumbered up there. That's why I'm not an accountant.

He's just always there for me. Always. But there are some things particular things that just make my heart melt. 1. He takes care of me by cooking, cleaning, bringing me tea in bed when I'm not feeling well 2. Every year on the anniversary of the day we met, I come home to the exact same Chinese meal we had on our first date. 3. He cleans the bathroom because it makes me gag When he calls me pumpkin or angel 4. He'll be out in front of my building after work when I'm not expecting him - so we can walk home together

When we're cuddling and watching tv/movie and something sappy or sentimental comes on and he holds me ever tighter.

Queesha I'm with you. My boyfriend is really bad expressing his feelings verbally but he'll do it in other ways. One of them is by teasing me. I pretend i hate it too but love it! He likes teasing since after I pretend I'm upset and he'll come and "comfort" me lol!

When he shows a side of himself I didn't know he had. I sometimes pigeonhole us (he's the calm salt-of-the-earth one, I'm the neurotic over-educated one) and when he uses a 50-cent word that I didn't know he knew or he references a book or movie I didn't expect him to know about, it reminds me all over again how multi-faceted he is.

my boyfriend loves to tease me and even though i pretend as if i hate it..i secretly love it!!it is like we are back in the 4th grade again.i turn bright red and give him a fake hit and "you jerk" but i wouldnt have it any other way. the day he stops teasing me is the day i know he has stopped being madly in love with me. he can tease me all day every day because i know ive got him hooked!!!!!

When he fiddles with my hair or wraps me up in a gigantic cuddle. Or refuses to let me out of bed when he's asleep. (I'll get up for a glass of water or something and I get cuddled tighter instead!) But what really makes me melt is when he pulls gargantuan kitty eyes when he doesn't get something he wants, it's so pathetic yet so gorgeous I can't help but be charmed all over again.

So many things for me. From small to large. Small things like remembering to grab all the trash cans an empty them when taking out the trash, or washing the dishes after dinner, or remembering to turn on the electric blanket on the bed so it's warm when we get in. Bigger things like listening to things I want or need and remembering, helping me feel better when I'm down, knowing exactly what I need and getting it for me before I even know i need it. He's a wonderful man.

Gosh, reading these is fun! I MELT when I see him interacting with little kids, he'll just sit and have a conversation with a kid we don't even know for 20 minutes and it's the cutest thing. I also fall for him when I wake up from napping on his lap and catch him staring at me with the most tender look imaginable... Most of all it's when he sacrifices his own comfort for me. I remember I had a huge paper due and because I had procrastinated I had to pull an all-nighter. It was super stressed, tired, and overwhelmed with the amount of research I had to do. My bf called me every few hours from night til morning, and even did some research and wrote a section of the paper for me (and it was on a subject he wasn't even familiar with!). He could have easily wished me good luck and enjoyed a good night's sleep but instead he stuck by me the whole night. Amazing.

I can definitely brag...he cooks, cleans, AND does laundry - all after coming home from a 9-hour workday. He is the best at helping me get through panic attacks, he doesn't complain when I'm hogging the TV, and I love his little habits. His main one is when we're getting ready for bed, he absolutely cannot have ANY kind of light. He covers up the lights to the DVR, our phones have to be turned on their screens, you see it, it's covered.

Time, having an open mind and patience. Also, the appreciation and gratitude towards the simple, basic stuff.

Ha! I feel the same way, Pop! There's nothing as cute as seeing one of my cats snuggled up on his lap. Especially since my cats had a track record of hating everyone but me, until he came along.

If my boyfriend knew I was writing this he would kill me. But seeing how much he loves our cats makes me love love him. Every time. I just think it's the sweetest thing. (I'm lame I know it!)

he has this impish grin that still makes me melt after 4 years and the way he always wants to make sure Im ok. We are having our first baby and hes always asking if Im ok, if I need anything- he would drop everything to go get me something from the store if I asked him to. I got a great man and I know it, and if I didnt I have my mother and all my friends to remind me lol. My cousins joke about cloning my husband so they can all have a nice guy like him.

Number 1 thing, if she can be totally honest with me, and at least trust me enough to be honest, it makes me love her even more. Even if honesty hurts sometimes, that and caring about herself. Can't really stand a woman that doesn't care that much about herself.

(Sorry something happened and it posted before I was really done.) -When he tells that we're too cutesy, but he likes it that way and hopes we're like that forever -When he helps me scrap my car on a cold morning -When he makes me lunch -When he says that we can go to DisneyWorld for his birthday and he'll wear a Mickey Mouse ear hat with his name on the back -and any other cheesetasticness I can think of, he does willingly without being whipped

* Sometimes it's just when I catch him looking at me with this, well, look. When I see that, I love him even more. Oh, and last night when I asked him why he said that he loves me more than he used to, he said that he decided a couple of weeks ago that he realized that he wasn't going to look any more because I'm perfect for him.

My husband has a very charming sense of humor. He makes me (and my girlfriends) giggle. His sense of humor is draw for me, as I love to laugh.

My most recent example happened last night: I had to park in another business' space in our building parking lot because someone was in mine. I figured it wasn't a big deal for the last two hours of the day. My bf usually walks to my work after his workday ends so we can ride home together (one car city couple) and when we walked out to the car last night it was gone! Dumb b**** at the bank had my car towed even though it was in the back one of their TEN empty spots. Livid. Anyway, he called the tow company and got us a ride to the lot. After breaking my car out of jail ($320 later) he bought me a bottle of wine, desert and a movie to cheer me up. He's a prince, I tell you.

Aww I love these!! And Kate's! The way my husband is with animals always makes me feel warm and fuzzy --- esp when he takes "my" cats to the vet, and even took the stray cat we were feeding to the vet, without complaining!
