a gem of a man

S does many things that make me, on a daily basis (and most times more often) reflect in wonderment at how I’ve managed to snag such a great dude. He is chivalrous, romantic, a man of his word, stoic, strong and well, oh so handsome.

And how can you resist a man who, when supermarket shopping sees you randomly mumble to yourself about craving just one can of lychee juice, hastily and without a moments thought, rushes to SHOVE 6 cans of the delectable stuff into the trolley?

I drank one last night, saw the dent from the shoving into trolley in haste to please me moment, and smiled to myself.

Yeo's Lychee Drink

yumminess with a dent of love

Always remember this, as it’s a lesson I took way too long to learn – if someone says they love you, they will likely try and do the “grand gestures” and fulfil the needs and desires you have that are difficult, and sporadic. Anyone can proclaim grandiose desires and intentions and try and prove them.

But it is a rare and worthwhile love who on a daily basis, seeks to be thoughtful and loving enough to do the little, easy, simple things, everyday, every time, without question or needing anything back in return. It’s the one who respects you on the little agreements, who wants to provide your daily comforts, who demonstrates with his every intention and action his true feelings, with whom the grandiose things are just icing on the cake.
