(Aw)esome, Deux

Part two of as many as I can do of awesome things a boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, husband, date, or lust worthy object do that make me say “aww”.

1. Knows when I need to be fed

I have hypoglycemia, as does my sister, and when our blood sugar levels get low, we tend to, as our family calls it, “dip”. I get grumpy, I get irritable, and I will almost always pick a fight. One of my boyfriends used to have fruit leathers on hand all the time in case I would start “dipping”.

When my sister and I were at Coachella, we got lost from our group, had eaten nothing but a single Churro between the two of us, and were wandering aimlessly looking for her boyfriend and all of our friends. Out of nowhere, he appeared with two meatball sandwiches in hand, one for each of us. He knew we would be lost and hungry, and I knew at that moment she had to marry that man. She sure did.

2. Checks me out when I’m looking (and feeling) my worst

You know those days that you feel ugly? You hate your outfit, your hair has rebelled, and you are bloated and feeling fat. There are few times when I appreciate being obviously checked out, but this is definitely a time when I embrace it (thank you boy on the street today).

3. Moves my hair off my face

That moment just before he kisses me, he brushes the hair off my face just ever so softly. Yummy.

4. Texts Bon Soir
We can go the entire day without talking, but when it’s bed time there is nothing like a little iPhone chime with a sweet message before bed. This is even more appreciated after they’ve been out all night, letting me know that out of all the cute girls they may have seen that night, I’m the one they think about before they fall asleep.
5. Doesn’t bring up moments of weak(drunken)ness
I acted foolishly the night prior, sent them a few drunk texts, emails, or the worst, voicemails. I may even have picked a fight, or twelve. The next day I wake up feeling sick to my stomach, am dreading speaking to them in fear of embarrassment. Shameover. But then I talk to them (they even answer!), they aren’t mad at me, they don’t make me feel embarrassed, instead they ask me to go for brunch. Bonus points if they show up with coffee to help cure the hangover. If you can handle me when I’m drunk, you can handle me forever.
