Take a couple notes from him.

Why Toby Damon From 'This Is Us' Is The Perfect Hubby
NBC Universal

For those of you that are as obsessed with the NBC TV Show "This Is Us" just as I am, you know a little something about Toby Damon. He's the heartthrob that most wouldn't see coming. Recently (SPOILER ALERT FOR SEASON 2), Toby and Kate decided to tie the knot and finally become man and wife. It wasn't easy for them to get to this point, as is the case in most real-life relationships. They went through some heartache, a near-death scare for Toby, and some emotional issues between the two of them both individually and together. Through all of this, they always ended up right back with each other, staring into each other's eyes and saying the three simple words that make all of the pain and worry go away…"I love you."

During this dramatic season finale, Toby's parents are brought into the picture for the first time in the show only to bring up how concerned they are for Toby regarding his future wife. They walk into his room only hours before the wedding, sit him on the bed, and start going.

They describe Kate as unstable. He has to "tip-toe around her just to keep from setting her off" and is "constantly bending over backwards to calm her." She as "issues you cannot fix." Keep in mind, Kate struggles with her weight, depression and anxiety, and as well as the loss of her Dad from about 15 years back.

My first thought to this? "That's me. They are describing me."

Without anyone even having to tell me, I know I'm unstable. I know that I struggle on a daily basis to keep a smile on my face and when I'm not able to do so, I feel nothing but defeated. But then I meant my own version of Toby Damon who does nothing but make me feel absolutely perfect in his eyes despite my insecurities and "damage."

We all have flaws. We all have baggage. But when someone loves you, looking past all of that isn't some chore for them, they do it with ease and without the blink of an eye.

Toby's response to this resembles this idea perfectly.

"If anyone's unstable, I'm unstable. I am unstably in love…"

If that doesn't show what your relationship should be, I don't know what does. Take a couple notes from Toby Damon. He knows how to pull just the right heart strings with just a few simple words.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
