du er en snill, følsom, omtenksom, hensynsfull og vidunderlig mann


Explanation:
...but methinks you are straining credibility somewhere between caring and compassionate. Clearly, this man doesn't exist. If he were all these things, he would certainly not be conceited enough to listen to all of this without blushing through his teeth. Something like "du er en omtenksom, snill og ganske vidunderlig mann" might have a chance.
