people are love and respecting (now).
Join the movement.
My boyfriend and I have been together for a year and 3 months. He says he’s committed to me, but he won’t say he loves me, even though he wants to. He was in a previous relationship for 6 years so I understand he wants to be cautious and take it slow. But, c’mon…if he says he wants to say it but doesn’t say it, doesn’t that mean he doesn’t love me?
Well, Maria, maybe he doesn’t love you; but, my guess is this has more to do with the quality of his character and his desire to make his words and his actions line up than it does with any lack of commitment on his part.
There are certain values at the heart of every woman that, when demonstrated by a good man, lets them know they are loved—more of that in the video.
It could be that he is actually trying to uphold these by being cautious.
So, tune in and be encouraged. It’s probably not as bad as you think.*
From my heart,
What do you think was going on in this situation? Have you been in something similar?
How can our different definitions of words cause misunderstanding in relationships? What can we do about it?
Love and Respect (Now) is a division of Love and Respect. Please be considerate.
