List Five Ways to Win Your Heart
Sorry gentlemen, I’m taken but since I’m doing a 30 day challenge and this is the topic of the day I’ll write about the things that my man does to keep my heart. 🙂
I love food. I love trying new foods. I love eating home cooked meals. So, when Mr. Canuck offers to take me for sushi, Montana’s, Applebees, or any other place that’s soul purpose is to provide my mouth with yummy goodness he’s making me happy.
Get me food or make me food and he’s automatically in my good books. 😛
|Dish Pan Hands|
As much as I love food, I don’t like cleaning up after making it. To say I hate doing dishes would be an understatement, and at the moment we don’t have a dishwasher… so… our sink is usually a nightmare. That is until Mr. Canuck comes to the rescue and washes the dishes.
Sure, I do them sometimes but because he knows I hate doing them he does them.
|Show How Much He Cares in Public|
Now I’m not talking about making-out in the middle of the mall, or on the street. I’m simply talking about holding my hand, giving me a kiss on the cheek, or wrapping his arm around my shoulder. He even says that he loves me or compliments me. Showing that he loves me in a public places shows he isn’t afraid of showing that we are together.
Mind you he doesn’t shout that we’re together on the top of his lungs which I’m thankful for. The less subtle he is, the more happy he makes me.
I’m the planner in the relationship. If there is a vacation or a trip we have to make I’m the one that books the hotels and sets out a schedule to do things.
What really makes me happy is when he takes over some of the planning. It doesn’t have to be big. He can plan a meal or a stopping point in the trip and that generally makes me happy. But, there are the rare occasions that he takes half of the trip and plans it without telling me.
That there is why I love my man. (o^.^o)
Nothing gets my heart than a guy that has his priorities in check. Mr. Canuck and I have been together for three years. We aren’t married, and that’s okay because eventually we plan on tying the knot. At the moment we don’t want to put our money into something like a wedding when there are other things we want first.
Our own house. Better jobs. Pets. Move closer to family. Those are all things we have prioritized before getting married and the fact that Mr. Canuck has the same/ similar priorities as me makes my heart sing.
Now just like planning, I do most of the house cleaning. That means laundry, kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms, vacuum, dusting, windows… so-on-so-forth.
When I was in my last year of schooling and even now that I’m pretty much working two/three jobs (heading accounts payable, author, blogger) meaning I work from 8am-12am everyday. Due to my crazy overtime in everything the house work has taken a back-seat. That is until Mr. Canuck realizes I’m overloaded and decides to clean the bathroom for me or tidy the kitchen or do the laundry.
It isn’t much, but it shows he’s supporting me in my goals of wanting to be a full-time writer and that means a lot to me. 🙂
