1. When he comes up behind you when you’re doing your makeup/washing your hands/picking out socks and puts his arms around your waist and kisses your neck. This is never not hot.
2. When the cat sits on him and he pets her and she purrs. Even though he claims to hate your cat/all cats, he obviously is in love with your cat.
3. When you come home and you just want to die and he’s cleaned the entire apartment top to bottom. So you can die in a clean apartment.
4. When he goes down on you and doesn’t expect any other sexual activity afterward. Ideally, he just goes to the kitchen to fetch you some Pellegrino and a light snack.
5. When you wake up and he’s already making coffee. Fuck yeah.
6. When he pulls your legs onto his lap when you’re watching TV. Foot reliefand sensual leg caressing.
7. When you’re waiting in line somewhere and he starts massaging your shoulders while you’re bored. Impromptu shoulder massages are literally always at least a little arousing.
9. When he brags about you to your friends/family. Oooh, I love when you tell everyone about my promotion for me.
10. When he pulls you over to his side of the bed in the morning. He’s not even really awake, it’s just a reflex. A sexy reflex.
11. When he touches your knee under the table at a boring event. Not so boring anymore.
12. When he kisses anywhere that’s not your mouth sweetly. Also, when he kisses you on the mouth hard.
13. When he becomes friends with your dad (or mom, or sibling). “I just sent your dad a hilarious YouTube video,” is music to your ears.
14. When you come home drunk and he’s already making you a grilled cheese in his pajamas. He’s not wearing pants, but also, grilled cheese!
15. When he finally embraces your vibrator. Men, the vibrator is not your enemy. The vibrator is your friend.
16. When he makes across-the-room eye contact at a party. Even if you’ve been together forever it feels like you’re about to start an illicit affair to the soundtrack of Beyoncé’s “Partition.”
17. When he wears a tailored suit or tux. Rawr.
18. When he carries your suitcase and his, no questions asked. Nothing satisfies quite like your man walking beside you with three bags while you gaze at him over your iced coffee.
19. OK, this:
