Dating 101: Listening Ignites Love

True love listens even if the timing is inconvenient.

When we truly love someone, we are open to them. We can feel one another’s pain. What an opportunity to strengthen the bond between the two. Now let’s decipher the micro-poem above that I wrote.

1st line: She was vulnerable, hurt, yet, she stayed opened to love.

By the way, the woman exposed herself to him. She came from a place of love despite how much she was hurting. She allowed her vulnerability to be exposed. Why? Because she is raw and authentic.

Too many times, we shut down or deflect when we hurt. Instead, we should be open; that’s how we can heal and become stronger.

2nd line: And he listened intently with everything he had, cause he knew she needed him.

When she brought her vulnerability, he felt her pain, even though it might of been inconvenient for him, he wanted to send a message of love to her. What greater gift can we give to our partner in life than that of in-depth listening. Then giving suggestions in ways of comfort.

3rd line: And she was grateful.

A man or partner can solidity the strength of a relationship by being understanding to the anguish their person feels. And to be supportive even at the cost of inconvenience. Now that’s love.

Yesterday, my man did that for me

I had, had a challenging day, and I was mentally drained. He asked me how my day was going.

I replied: It’s been quite challenging, but, I’m optimistic it will get better.

His response was. He immediately called me and asked me if I was ok, and wanted me to tell him why. Then he was supportive in listening and offering loving advice.

Do you know how that made me feel? So grateful to have such an understanding man. I thanked him for listening to me. I wanted him to know I appreciated him immensely.

I wanted this to be an example of how we can be there for one another. Sending all my love
