"He kept talking about anything. He seemed so enthusiastic about learning and sharing what he learned. To me, it said that he's very smart but not arrogant about it. I don't consider myself a smart person, but he didn't seem to care. Actually, it was the enthusiasm that piqued my interest. I definitely want to keep talking to him." -u/Lady_laughs_too_much "I can't - this is too real! My husband has ADHD and I absolutely love his little quirks and that he is a mini Wikipedia - I could listen to him talk about things for hours together!" -u/DervishatHeart

2. Just feeling right

"It just felt right being together after about 5 minutes into the date. It's been 13 years since that first date and the feeling still hasn't changed. That's how I feel with my wife." -u/Scorponok_rules "People say we're still in the honeymoon phase. But they keep adding onto the years when I tell people I still love her like back in the day. I think they're jealous that I can still flirt with my wife and take her out on dates even years later." -u/Snake101333

3. Loving each other's presence

"We just didn’t want to end the night, we must’ve gone to 3 different spots just talking each other's ears off." -u/defnitelynotsheo " I've been married for over 20 years and we were together for 5 years before that. There's no one I'd rather have on a long drive than my wife because she can talk about literally anything, for damn near any length of time, and not one word will be boring. She's incredibly intelligent and inquisitive and I married far far above my league." -u/Stock-Conflict3996

4. Letting the goofy out

"This girl I was dating a few years ago did an impression of a T Rex on our third date, and she went all out. Little arms at her chest, big dino steps, full effort roar. I knew I'd marry her from that moment. We got married last summer. We have a little dinosaur on the way this October." -u/HatefulTwon "This would sell me so hard. Someone who's not afraid of not taking themselves too seriously, willing to be a goof and have some fun. Definitely not first-date kinda stuff, but second/third, for sure." -u/DefinitelyNotThatOne

5. Beyond caring

"I had my arm in a sling from breaking my clavicle back when I met my man in August. On our first date, he asked me to hand him my plate so that he could cut my food for me. I already thought that he was a great guy so that just made me think even higher of him." -u/BrooklynnotNY "Having broken my collarbone twice, once later in life, I can appreciate that gesture. Normal everyday tasks become difficult with the loss of an arm/hand." -u/Always_B_Batman

6. Bizarrely real compliments

"We were riding down the road with the windows down and he looked over at me from the driver's seat and said, 'You are f**king gorgeous!' I'll never forget that, it lives rent-free in my head like from a romance movie."-u/JustSarahtheMechanic "It doesn't matter how many times we're told this from other guys, it's like in one ear out the other who cares, but it all makes the difference when it's said by the one man that you want to hear this from." -u/Odd_Paint_4107

7. The gentlaman stature

"For our first date, we got coffee and walked around Barnes & Noble for a little while. We were browsing some books by the entrance when a bus pulled up and an elderly man with a walker stepped off. I saw him struggling to open the door and took a step to help. My date, whose back was to the entrance, whirled around and bounded over to the door, holding both sets open and helping the man through. We’ve been together for over five years now." -u/fiddledoctor

8. Being upfront and open

"Most men hide their sad back story or any vulnerable parts of themselves, but he opened up about being orphaned and his mother's mental illness and how he manages without support and 3 hours later I didn't want to leave the table. His confidence in being honest was so hot. It didn't come across like a sob story." -u/iaspiretobeclever "My current partner and I also did this on our first date. It was really nice to get all the mess out in the open right away. It helped as we kept seeing each other because we knew why the other would do things a certain way." -u/BradypusGuts

9. Getting priorities right

"We were at his home, alone for the first time. His friends called and he said, 'I am so sorry, I gotta go, my friends have been drinking and they don't want to drive, I'll go pick them up, I'll drop you off on the way.' We've been married 10 years now and that was the moment I fell in love. I was really impressed by how he didn't hesitate. His friends could count on him and he is mature and responsible, he worried that they might try to drive while drunk. I thought this was a reliable man who had his priorities right." -u/eye_snap

10. Being thoughtful and protective

"As we were driving to dinner a car swerved into our lane causing him to have to brake hard, he automatically put his arm out over me. It was something my mother always did. To me, it symbolized unthinking care and thoughtfulness. We will be married thirty years this month and he is truly thoughtful, empathetic, and caring. I told him he was simply a good man. That is high praise to me. Nothing better than a genuinely good person." -u/DianaPrince2020
