That beautiful irrational giddy feeling. Nothing else feels quite like it. Not closing the business deal of the year, not acing your exams, not making your first millionsssss, not arriving victorious after a long winded legal battle...
All these are truly great feelings but they're very different from the feeling of being in love and loved in return.
I've been lied to, cheated on, deceived, disappointed... But I've been loved. Lord, I've been loved!
I've dated more guys than I care to remember, I've been told "I love you" by many of them, but I (think) I've been loved by only two men.
So I'm here with this goofy grin thinking of the times that I said to myself, this guy must really love me.
I'm thinking of so many "he must really love me moments" in my life that I don't even know where to begin. So let's start with you.
At what points in your relationship/marriage has Bae made you say "he must really love me..." Or "she must really love me"?
Was it when he proposed? Was it when she said yes? Was it when he cut off all his side chics for you? Was it when she let you be her first 🙈? Or perform some sexual act that she has never ever ever ever ever done or could do with another? Was it when he defended you to his family? Was it when she ignored her friends' and family's advice that she deserved someone better and still stood by you? Was it when he/she gave you their ATM password or even their phone password? Was it when he drove all the way from Lagos to Accra just to see your face? Was it when he made you breakfast in bed? Was it when she dropped her "feminist" ways just for you? Was it the times he's been extremely generous with you even when he is naturally stingy (LOL)? Was it when you noticed that he keeps talking about you to all his friends? Was it when she made that big sacrifice for you? Was it when she saw something in you that other ladies didn't, and nurtured you from that scruffy boy to that suave man you've become today? Was it when he invested in your future and paid for that expensive course for you? Was it when you woke up to find that you'd wet the bed 🙈 and he/she just kissed you and helped you clean up?
It could be anything really. So what was that moment for you?
I pray for you, that you'd find someone that loves you so much that these moments in your relationship will be just too many, you wouldn't even know where to start from to talk about it. Amen.
But, let's talk!
