Slowhand - I like nurturing without it being codependent. Early in our relationship we spontaneously cared for each other and it seemed so natural. It did feel awkward feeding her and I offered to feed her a bite of all her portions since I thought it would cause her more stress than enjoyment. I cooked her dinner, she picked out what she wanted. I sanitized the bathroom and prepped the bath the way she wanted...bubbles, candles, no rose petals. I did not get in the tub with her and bathed her in a non-sexual manner to her liking. Afterward I brushed her teeth, hair and rubbed her back while she watched what she wanted on t.v. I was careful to be mature and non-sexual so as not to ruin the moment for her. I liked this so much that the nurturing continues. We have re-started our daily couples time in the morning with a devotional and prayer and I occasionally go into her office and gently stroke her hair or give her a little kiss. I love her very much and know that I don't show it in appropriate ways often enough.

Candy - I enjoyed having my hair brushed the most because that is something that is very relaxing. I also enjoyed the bubble bath. Being fed was awkward and to be honest, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to take away from that but it was nice that he prepared the meal and prepared what I had requested. It was nice to have him doing something nice for me without expecting something in return. I think that was the biggest thing for me. I'm hoping we can each continue to do nice things for one another with no strings attached.
