A More Positive Outlook on Life

Improved Communication Skills
A popular comment said, “He’s forced me to grow as a person to be more patient, more mindful of my words and actions, to take a hard look at myself and learn to be a better communicator and partner. Although not all growth feels good, I am a better person for it.”
One user wrote, “I met him in my mid-20s, and we were party animals, but even then, I know I wanted to get old with him because he would make me laugh forever. I never wanted to get married or have kids – until I met him.”
A second user added, “He settled me down. I was the crazy party girl who got drunk every weekend. Now I can’t even tell you the last time I was drunk. Oh wait, yes, I can- our wedding ”

A user stated, “He’s given me a sense of security, and he listens to my opinions and asks for them.”

Enhanced Social Life and Relationships
One Redditor replied, “He is pleasant company, and I enjoy spending time with him. :)”
A second Redditor commented, “I’m more out there socially than I was years ago. When he’s around, I feel so comfortable in my own skin, and he always lets me know how amazing he thinks I am and is super supportive.“
Physical and Emotional Support
One user said, “By always being there for me, no matter what. I can’t imagine living without this feeling anymore.”
Greater Sense of Purpose and Direction In Life
A user replied, “He’s probably one of the most disciplined people I’ve ever met. He’s five years younger than me, and I often feel like he’s the older one in our relationship. He just really has his **** together. He makes me want to be more disciplined in my own life.”
Increased Cultural, Intellectual, and Social Awareness
One Redditor commented, “He has introduced me to people I would not have otherwise met, he has brought me books I would not have otherwise read, he has taken me places I would not have otherwise traveled. My life is infinitely better because of him.”

One Redditor wrote, “My ex introduced me to my new two favorite video games, lol.”
