A wise woman knows the importance of speaking life into her man. If you love him: believe in him, encourage him & be his peace

“You make me happy.”
I had nestled into the only soft space on his body, right below his armpit, and settled in for the evening when the words slipped out. I froze, knowing what it meant.
“You make me happy.” he echoed. “That’s why I like spending time with you.”
It was then I started the countdown, because it was only a matter of time.
T-Minus First Exhale.
This time, it didn’t even make it past the month before I got “the talk”.
“Listen, you’re wonderful. I’ve ever felt more at peace then when we hang out. You are going to make a great wife. It’s just so fast.. I just got out of a relationship two years ago and I didn’t expect… I just need time to…”
At least this time I got the dignity of an explanation instead of a complete MIA.
It seems intimacy is at a premium these days.
