If You Love Me|
According to today's women [black women], there are certain signs that should raise a red flag when being involved with men of the world. Below is a list of things women suggests other women should beware of before getting involved with a man [a black man]. Afterward, Afromerica brings forth what we feel people should know about true love, instead of the shallowness of the following list:
Out of 25 women surveyed
Never date a man who…
Being in love [true love] is an intensifying experience for each facet of one's tri-being: And expressing that love comes relatively easy if the person on the receiving end knows what to expect. However, in today's loveless society, knowing what to expect has become blurred in many eyes and hearts, as you can see from the above list.
What you would do if you love me? According to high maintenance people, if you love me you would:
1. pay my rent and/or bills
1. look good at all times
1. spend time with me
1. not care how much money I make
The above expectations are based solely on hear se and peer group gossip. Though these people are not difficult to please, they are more susceptible to outside influences when interpreting what love is. They are also the people who experience more breakups and disappointing relationships than any others do because they rely on the trends of other people's relationships than the power of real love.
Both scenarios are common in today's society yet both leave little room for what true love is supposed to offer. True love expects no frills, perks, or extremities but rolls out naturally bringing a level of comfort and security both partners can embrace. There is no pressure in love and it never has to be proven. In a relationship between a man and woman whom love one another, the depths of love are expressed as so, if you love me, you would:
1. Always tell me you do because it's the way you feel not because you are forced to or for occasion
True love should never be measured by social trends, statistics, or against other people's relationships, but by the tri-being of both partners. Love is not suppose to be a structured design or manufactured agreement, but should shape the people involved; in fact, love can never be structured: And has a power its own that no society can control. Therefore, if one loves another, they would know this.
