He bathed me for three weeks while I was recovering from surgery. Washed my hair and my body, helped me dry off and get dressed, brushed my hair and put lotion on for me and cuddled me in bed afterward. I'd never been so vulnerable and he embraced it without a second thought. - u/geminiauture I remember once I messed up my back pretty bad working out & my boyfriend actually washed me while we showered together. Brings a certain level of comfort, knowing he's willing to do things like that on the off chance I ever needed it. - u/queensizeme
I'm ovulating this week and I'm in so much pain. He found me trying to walk up the stairs while holding on to the wall while trying to take deep breaths. He turned on the hot water in the bathtub. He helped me up the stairs and into the tub. Left and came back with my phone, tablet, water and Midol. He does this every time he sees I'm in pain. And that's every time I ovulate or start my period. I love this man. - u/noonecaresat805
When my dad died, he dropped everything at work, canceled all of his meetings and came home to comfort me. I told him that wasn't necessary and I would've been fine until he got off work at his normal time, but he looked at me sternly and said, "All that stuff can wait. There is nothing more important to me than you." This is just the main thing that comes to mind, but he proves that statement daily in everything that he does, I'm incredibly lucky to have him. -u/dancingmobsters
We had a very traumatic experience bringing our first baby into the world. So, much so we weren't sure if we'd ever have another, even though two was always the plan. When we did finally have a second baby, my husband insisted on taking the night shift because he didn't want me to suffer mentally, like I did the first time. I tried a few times to take over, especially once I felt physically better. But he insisted that I did enough during the day and it was something he wanted to do to make things easier for me. -u/kka430
One that springs to mind is when I was working at a school and the canteen was closed that day. I forgot to bring my lunch and there wasn't anywhere else I could go and eat in the time available for my lunch break. My SO drove my lunch out to me - 50 minutes each way. When I told him how much it meant to me, he kind of shrugged it off like "as if I'd let you go hungry, it was a no-brainer." - u/_fairywren
We were in Walmart looking at brooms and he put one back on the shelf as he inspected a different one. However, he didn't put it securely on the shelf. It fell off the shelf and smacked me right on the head. That really hurt! He immediately grabbed me and started hugging and kissing my head and profusely apologizing over and over. Even after I assured him I was okay, he was super attentive the rest of the day and kept asking if I had a headache and bought me a Reese's because he felt bad. - u/littleghool
We were moving and I had to say goodbye to a lot of special people earlier in the day, followed by a packed day of family hangouts where I was certain I did an awesome job hiding my devastation and pretending to be great. I laughed and joked and had a great time. When we got home and went to bed, he turned off the light. I waited until I thought he was asleep. He heard one tiny sniffle and said, "I know. Come here" and wrapped his arms around me while I cried on his chest. - u/DragonFlyMeToTheMoon
I had a horrendously painful and massive ingrown in my upper pubic area. I always tried to keep him from looking at it, but one day, he insisted he take care of it. Got out his medical kit and gave me a pillow to scream into. Cleaned me up and covered it with a bandaid. He'd always check in to see how it was healing. I can think of nothing grosser for a partner to have to do, but he handled it like a champ! - u/oneidalee
He was utterly and completely truthful with me about his deepest darkest secret and trauma. He let me in so I could stand by his side and be his ally. It was one of the most profoundly meaningful experiences of my life and we continue to fight the good fight as a team. It was a first for him. He had never told anyone. It was a first for me, I had never been trusted like that or needed so much. - u/LemmyLola
This probably isn't even the most caring thing he's done for me, but it's a recent thing that was really touching. We live in a trafficy area that's hard to drive in, so I'm kind of afraid to drive here. He not only bought me a car, but he went out of his way to find the exact model that I grew up driving to make me feel as comfortable and safe as possible. - u/brunetteskeleton
