Cultivating appreciation for spouse: non-sexual
What would you say drew / draws you to your spouse from a non-sexual standpoint? Trying to cultivate a better appreciation for the spouses God has given us. Thank you for your replies in advance.
For me, I would say I had never really had a girl pay serious attention to me before my wife did, and she seemed to genuinely respect and care about me as a person, right from the start. I had always been a loner and felt very nervous around girls, but she had a way about her that disarmed me and made me feel at ease. It is still the same today. She takes good care of me and she loves me, and that has made a real difference in my life. I know I have a long way to go, but still I have come a long way already, and a big part of this is her love in my life that God has used.
My husband has a way of making everyone around him feel special. People are drawn to him from little, little kids all the way up to senior citizens. He is unfailingly kind, generous and helpful. He is hard-working and humble (sometimes too humble!) He is smart and creative and funny and he loves me unconditionally. He’s just one of a kind and I can’t imagine life without him. Sometimes we relate as lovers and sometimes more like brother and sister, but he is always the most important person in the world to me. I am unbelievably blessed to have this man for my very own. 🙂
The top two things would be his intelligence and sense of humor. I noticed those immediately on the day we met. I was also drawn in by his ambitiousness and hard working attitude. He’s also a very positive person, which I realized was something to be appreciated, after having dated so many negative men.
