    8. "When she just looks at me and smiles. My fiancé is beyond beautiful to me, all the damn time, and it doesn’t matter if she’s dressed to the nines or in her pyjamas with a sloppy ponytail, the second she smiles at me the rest of the world falls away!"

    u/passionatelyrational

    dentist3214

    26. "Chatting up strangers in foreign languages. He’s super outgoing and won’t hesitate to talk to people even if his grasp on the language isn’t perfect. Even makes Dutch sound sexy."

    NBC

    27. "I know this will be weird but I love it when my woman starts talking shit when she plays online games. It's [the] biggest turn on for me, she can even talk shit to me and it'll turn me on."

    u/Nooblover420

    28. "I’ll say I want to go to some place one day or have a flower garden in our yard or a whole wall for my books and he says so confidently, 'You will.' We’re kinda poor at the moment so some of the things that I’m excited about are kind of a stretch, but I find it very sweet and endearing that he is so sure and determined that I will have everything I want."

    u/ssundriedtomatoess

    29. "When I wake up in the morning, and I see her looking at me... Then she smiles... Married 31 years and she still amazes me. I am a lucky man."
