A MAN’S LOVE
Ask any woman what kind of love she wants from a man, and it will sound something like this:
“I want him to be humble and smart, fun and romantic, sensitive and gentle, and, above all, supportive. I want him to look in my eyes and tell me I’m beautiful and that I complete him. I want a man who is vulnerable enough to cry when he’s hurting, who will introduce me to his mother with a smile on his face, who loves children and animals, and who is willing to change diapers and wash dishes and do it all without me having to ask. And if he has a nice body and a lot of money and expensive shoes without scuffs, that would be great, too. Amen.” (Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man, Ch. Our Love Isn’t Like Your Love-Steve Harvey)
A man’s love doesn’t come close to a woman’s love. If he loves you, he will Acknowledge, Defend and Deliver. If he professes his love for you and you are really special in his world, he will give you a title-and will want everyone to know it,too! This shows he is proud and has a plan for where you fit in his life. He sees a long-term future with you.
If he introduces you as a “friend” or by your name, you are nothing more than just that. But if you have the title of “Girlfriend”, “Fiancée”, “Wife”, you know this man’s intentions and he is serious about you.
Make him feel like he came up with the idea about your relationship, let him do the asking and chasing. He will feel more “macho and manly”, like he takes charge, but in actuality you hold the reins. <3
A man who loves you will provide for you, that is his job and his role. The more a man can provide for his family, the more alive he feels. If he loves you, he will make you feel like you have everything you need, even if he is not the richest. Women are taught not to depend on men and to be independent; however, real men do what they have to so they know their people are taken care of: housed, food, clothed and the like. If not by monetary value, your man will provide in other tangible ways; by helping with what he can, in the meantime. For example, maybe he can’t afford to take you out for a lavish dinner, but will cook a home hearted, romantic meal with you at home.
A man wants a woman who is loyal, supportive and whom he can be intimate with. If he loves you, you are a prized possession and he will go the distance to offer you advice and keep you safe.
The reason why men do not commit is because you do not require it of him! You have to demand that he stands, delivers and treats you how you deserve to be treated. If he can’t get it right, another man will do it better and treat you like a Queen. Sometimes giving him a little ultimatum can push him in the right direction, put your foot down about an important matter, he will get his act together.
Your man may not go shopping with you for the dress you are wearing to your next event, but he will escort you, introduce you to his friends and make sure you feel appreciated. He may not be there cuddling with you, holding your hand and watching Titanic, while you are sick, but he will make sure your medication is filled, you have a hearty meal and be there until you get well again. If he stands up for you and protects you, he is showing he cares and is in for the long haul.
Women are nurturing; that is all a man wants, to be loved, supportive and have some romantic alone time with you. The world can knock you down, but if you ask him how his day was and thank him for being helpful with the kids, being around the house or for the little small sweet things he does, he will be all yours.
