  1. I got a compliment once! I was getting coffee and the barista said “hey, your coat is really nice”. Felt amazing!

    Did I wear that coat for the next 6 months straight? Yes.
    Do I still think about the compliment a year later? Yes.
    Was the compliment from a woman? No.
    As a straight guy do I care that it was a guy who complimented my coat? No, it felt great!

    Thank you kind barista, I look forward to getting another compliment in 5-10 years, hopefully next time it’s from a woman but I’ll take what I can get 🙂

  2. I moved out when I fell out with my parents aged 19. I worked three jobs on top of going to college and I struggled to pay rent and put food on the table. The run-up to Christmas was particularly hard, with all my friends looking forward to going home to spend Christmas with their family.

    I was in student accommodation that year and I had to move out for the Christmas break. My friend gave me their accommodation which was open. I was completely alone there so it was very lonely at times, but at least I had somewhere warm and dry.

    At this stage, I was almost completely out of food and money. I was eating out of the bins in the shop I was working in. I was too embarrassed to tell anyone or look for help, but one of my friends asked what I was doing for Christmas Day. I didn’t want to tell her and tried to make up a story, but she knew I was living alone and saw through it.

    She invited me over to spend Christmas Day with her family and insisted I came. I was nervous going there and felt I was crashing a family gathering, but when I got there, her parents and sisters could not have been more welcoming; I was treated like one of their own. I was fed a big dinner and dessert, and we stayed up late eating, drinking, and chatting. I ended up staying over that night and got a lovely breakfast that kept me going for the next day.

    I’ve never known how to thank her or her family. Any time I even mention it she minimizes it and laughs it off. I don’t think I’ll ever forget what she did for me; to go from feeling extremely lonely, stressed, and anxious about my situation to having one of the best days of my life is honestly the most memorable thing that’s ever happened to me.

  3. Definitely my girlfriend this week.

    For context, I’m a divorced father of 2 and I had my visit with my kids this week. My girlfriend accompanying (meeting kids for the first time for her). Kids live 1200 miles away, but we’re planning on moving to them later this year.

    After the kids went with their mom at the end of the visit, I was saddened as I usually am, and my girlfriend was trying to comfort and cheer me up, and although it took a while for me to cheer up, I really appreciated the effort

  4. My wife threw me a surprise b’day party. I normally don’t want to do anything. But she invited like 30 people and everyone brought me gifts. It was amazing and I remember crying because I was so overwhelmed by the whole thing. I’m holding back tears just writing this

  5. My mother decided to sacrifice two decades of her life subjecting her to the stress of raising a fourth child when she could easily have aborted me (especially given that I was an unplannend pregnancy). To this date she worries more about my well-being than her own. I don’t think anything else can possibly compare to the level of unconditional, irrational love a mother feels for her child.

    But… excluding that, probably my employer. I often feel like he cares more about my well-being than I do.
