Going back to Steve Harvey's book, I quoted him on his statement on women's love here. This is a question to women who have fallen in-love, isn't that description Harvey gave "exactly how [women] expect men to love them" back? I mean, to those who've already found - The One - don't you wish that sometimes your man will love you the way you love him? Here's Harvey's explanation of a man's love:
Well, I'm here to tell you that expecting that kind of love - that perfection - from a man is unrealistic. That's right, I said it - it's not gonna happen, no way, no how. Because a man's love isn't like a woman's love.
Don't get it confused, now - I'm not saying that we're not capable of loving. I'm just saying that a man's love is different - much more simple, direct, and probably a little harder to come by...It's just different from the love that women give and, in a lot of case, want.
I argue that if you simply recognize how, exactly, a man loves, you might find that the man standing in front of you is, indeed, giving you his all and then some. How do you know when a man loves you? Simple: he will do each of the following three things.
Profess - a man will have a title for his woman - my woman, my baby mama, etc.
Provide - a man who loves you will bring that money home to make sure that you and the kids have what you all need.
Protect - when a man truly loves you, anybody who says, does, suggests, or even thinks about doing something offensive to you stands the risk of being obliterated.
In sum, ladies, you have to stop heaping your own definition of love on men and recognize that men love differently. A man's love fits only into three categories. As I've explained, I call them "The Three Ps of Love - Profess, Provide, and Protect. A man may not go shopping with you to buy the new dress for your office party, but a real man will escort you to that party, hold your hand, and proudly introduce you all around the party as his lady (profess); he may not cuddle you and sit by the bed holding your hand while you're sick, but a real man who loves you will make sure the prescription is filled, heat up a can of soup, and make sure everybody is in position until you are better (provide); and he may not willingly change diapers, wash the dishes, and rub your feet after a hot bath, but a real man who loves you sure will walk through a mountain and on water before he'd let someone bring any hurt or harm to you (protect). This much you can believe.
I would like to hear from both men and women if this is true or not. Comment away!
