True or False: A Man in Love Is No Simple Thing?

Welcome to the first True or False post! I always come across quotes/sayings/stories that bring up certain theories and ideas on dating and romance, so I figured, why not share it with all of you and find out what you think about it?

The first one will be this picture post I found on Pinterest the other day about a girl asking if guys go through similar emotions as we do when in love with someone.

This man’s response is so sweet and amazing, but I want to know from you, True or False: “A man in love is no simple thing”?

Holler in the comments!

“I wonder how boys feel when they’re in love. do they get butterflies? do they have you on their mind 24/7? do they wait for you to come online for hours? do they smile at random times at the thought of you? do they miss you all the time? do they think about the smallest things you say?

We boys don’t get butterflies, we get fireworks. We don’t have you on our mind 24/7, but we do have you on our hearts. Often, yes we wait for you to go online, sometimes simply even just being online makes our heart skip a beat, even if we don’t talk. Whenever you talk to us, our face forms that half-smile; it means we are happy but are trying our hardest to not show it, and fail at hiding it. We do miss you all the time; granted, we’d spend all our time with you if possible. We don’t think of the smallest things you say, we think of every word you say, panicking at every single word, trying to define what it really means, to read between the lines. But wait there’s more.

We would love you in a million ways. And once we start loving you there is no going back for us. No matter how hard we try we will always love a girl that has touched us. Us boys when in love will think of that girl first thing in the morning, and think of that girl last before we sleep at night. Whenever we see a couple, our thoughts immediately jump to that girl, and imagine that the couple was us. Every single detail about her is loved; the way she walks, talks, speaks. The sound of her voice. Her laughter. The sparkle in her eyes. Her shy smile. The way she dresses. That cute face she makes when she’s asleep. And the way she says our name that our hearts just explode with mirth, a simple act that no one else can replicate.

A boy in love with a girl is no simple thing, though ladies stereotype us guys as simple. A man in love is not simple. No. He will be unpredictable. He will be persistent, stubborn and given the circumstances, if it means carrying you from one side of the world to the other to win your heart, a man in love would. He will be a martyr, giving his all and asking for almost none. He will show you how to appreciate the beauty of the world in a thousand ways, and then he will tell you how much he appreciates your beauty in a million ways.

A man in love is no simple thing.”

  • Let me just say this is 100% accurate. I am in a situation with a girl who I met a few weeks ago and I swear I get nervous excitement every time I receive a text from her, or see her come online. I am always so excited to spend time with her, even though the hours seem to go by in minutes. The connection is unreal and I feel like I can fly – but I am also afraid to fall, I have put myself out there and I am unsure as to how she really feels. It’s just as difficult to be a guy in love with a girl, as it is the other way around. I am completely enamored by her, I just love seeing her smile. I love looking into her eyes as she tells me a story about her life. I pay so close attention that sometimes I forget to breathe. She is literally breathtaking in every way. I don’t know what to do next though, she seems to not be ready, she wants space which I will respectfully give to her. I just want something real for once in my life and I want to be loved like I give love.
