When he loves you, he loves you from a place of fear from being ridiculed by his peers. From a place he could be perceived as appearing soft, weak and vulnerable. From a place that is traditionally unmanly by society’s standards.
When he loves you, he loves you with his entire being. Even though his displays may appear small they come from a place that is vast and infinite. He finds it hard to let go of his emotions that his heart has held hostage for so many years.
When he loves you, he loves you for you. He knows what you’ve been through and the strength it took to overcome it. He sees you every part of you good, bad and ugly and knows in his heart you are beautiful. He has scars of his own to bare to you.
When he loves you, he loves you out of desire. He’s chosen you as you are out of all the others that vied for his attention. He loves you, hot mess and all, sweat pants and messy bun, made up or dressed down. He wants you any way and every way he can have you.
When he loves you, he’s fighting all the stereotypical norms of what it is to be a man to call you cute pet names over text, to claim you as his girl to his friends, to put that relationship status up on social media. When he loves you, he’s opening up a place to you that has probably never seen the light of day. When he loves you, he’s made the most important choice of his life. When he loves you, he loves…you.
