I got a bunch of male friends (really my BF's friends, not mine) in a sappy mood and they started sharing stories about little things women did that made them feel very smitten (indicators of RMV mostly). This is a fairly RP crowd though not uniformly.
-Man, woman, and 2 friends were at a dinner, and they brought over 3 scallops (restaurant was famous for them). the woman reaches over the cut them and serve them, saves the tiniest piece for herself. little gesture of selflessness that just got to him!
-Man wanted to get out of a gym membership but as everyone knows, gyms are really annoying about it. It wasn't a big deal to him (not a lot of $) but he hates wasting money and it was nagging at him. He was surprised to find that a few days later GF had taken care of it - demonstrating her resourcefulness (she had a funny story about how she got him out of it) and thoughtfulness.
-Guy & girl meet at super pretentious artsy event (guy is not the type to know anything about art). Pretentious attendee tries to give guy shit/shame him about his ignorance, which just goads guy into being even more obnoxious ("Art is a waste of human effort" etc., making really ridiculous statements just to be defiant). Guy is basically cornered at this event. Girl (he doesn't know her super well) jumps into convo and makes some jokes about some esoteric and weird new performance artist. She simultaneously defuses the situation, sides with Guy (makes a point about modern art being ridiculous), and shows everyone there that she can hang with the best of them (basically saying don't F with me)
-Man watches woman complete super crazy race - she was coming back from an injury and he was really struck by her dedication & perseverance!
-GF telling her friends about BF's startup proudly (he was watching and very moved by her enthusiasm and faith)
-Guy visits girl's home for the first time and meets her parents, sees the place she grew up. It's a total shithole, and guy is really moved by realizing how far girl has come in life
Do y'all have a similar story about a small moment where you realized your guy was "the one" or he realized you were?
