A second said, “For my last birthday, my girlfriend got me a really great pottery apron (it’s got a split on the lower part so you can sit at the wheel easier), just because I randomly saw one and commented on it months before. She spent time going through many stores and Etsy sites to find one that was even better than the first one I saw, and it was the perfect gift.”

A user said, “I’m a very picky eater or was, I should say. I grew up with limited resources, so I always ate the same food and never really developed any tastes for food other than pb&j, mac-n-cheese, and random other cheap food. I’ve had girlfriends who would get upset with me about my pickiness, but she takes the time to try new foods with me and never says anything when I just want a pb&j instead.”

The Notes

Finally, “She makes my lunch for me and has made my lunch for me every day since we got serious. I work tough hours, sometimes all-nighters, and I’m away for 2 days at a time, and she never complains. I never ask her to make lunch. She just does it. The little notes she adds to the lunches are the icing on the cake too!” Source: Reddit
