There are so many men out there who falsely believe that they need to practically kill themselves just to make their ladies happy. And while that can be a very noble mindset to have, it’s completely unnecessary. You don’t have to be giving your lady the world. She’s only ever really interested in one thing: your love.
You might not necessarily be the richest guy around. You might not have grand estates and billions of dollars to your name. You might not necessarily have those movie-star looks or a scholar’s brains. You might not be a rocket scientist or a brain surgeon. You might not even be the best at what you do.
You might not even be an expert at anything. None of that is going to matter to me so as long as you know how to love – wholeheartedly and unconditionally. You might not always know how to make me happy. You might make a few mistakes here and there. You might stumble a few times in our relationship. And all of that is okay. I just need you to love me the best way you know how.
You don’t have to give me a lavish house. You don’t have to give my expensive jewelry. You don’t have to give me a fancy car to drive. Just give me your heart and I’ll be sure to give you mine in return. Just give me your love and I will make sure that you and I stay happy together.
I understand that you might be busy with your career at times. I understand that you might have a few other priorities in life. I know that I’m not always going to come first every single time. I know that I’m not your entire world. But I just want to know that when push comes to shove, you’re going to choose me. I want to know that when it’s all said and done, I am going to be your number one priority.
I want to know that all I ever really want is your quality time. You can’t buy that with anything. You can’t replace the time you spend with me with fancy watches or expensive dinners. I don’t need you to take me out to the most exclusive restaurants for a date. I just want you to be able to converse with me; to connect with me. I just want you to actually talk to me like you mean it.
I want us to be able to get to know one another on the most intimate level possible. I want to be able to explore the depths of your soul and I want you to be able to do the same with me. I want you to take a deep look into the essence of my being and I want you to love all parts of me. I want to stare deeply into your eyes and see into your past, present, and future. Whenever you kiss me, I want you to taste the next 50 years of your life. Whenever you touch me, I want you to feel the electricity of my passion. Whenever you hear my voice, I want you to feel the timbre of my heart.
You have to know that I get giddy every single time you open up to me about the future that you have envisioned for the two of us. I love it whenever you have your grand dreams about the life that we’re going to have together. That’s all great. However, I also want you to know that I would much rather have you focus on the little promises and commitments that you make to me on a daily basis. I love a man who is going to have great attention to detail; a man who is always going to pay attention to the little things because they really matter that much to him.
I want you to be the kind of guy who would never take me for granted. Yes, I would love for you to always keep your eyes on the bigger picture at hand. But I also want you to take notice of the little things. Because at the end of the day, the relationship is going to be made up of all these little things.
I want you to live by your word. I want you to follow up on every promise that you make me. I want you to always live by the commitment that you swear to me. I want you to stay loyal to me even when I’m making it difficult for you to do so. I need you to CHOOSE to love me on a daily basis.
I don’t need you to give me all the things that you own. I just need you to give me all of your love. That would be enough.
