Strong men aren’t the ones that flaunt their muscles to impress girls that they’re going to sleep with once and then never see again. They aren’t the ones that hold back their tears, because they’re afraid of looking wimpish. They aren’t the ones that lead girls on for months before letting them know they aren’t ready for a relationship.

Strong men are the ones that let themselves cry in front of the women they love. They’re the ones that release their feelings, even though it’s hard. Even though they’ve been conditioned to repress them since childhood.

Strong men are the ones that aren’t afraid to tell women how they feel. The ones that refuse to play games, because they believe in honesty. The ones that hate the thought of letting a good girl get away, so they put in as much effort as they can to show her that she matters, that she means something to them.

Strong men are the ones that aren’t afraid of being labeled as whipped or being teased by their friends about a relationship. They’re the ones that are proud of their commitment. The ones that realize what a blessing dating the love of their life truly is.

Strong men are the ones that aren’t afraid to admit that they’re head over heels in love. They’re the ones that never send mixed signals. They never lead girls on. They never waste anyone’s time, because they’re not a heartbreaker.

Strong men are the ones that defend their girlfriend against anyone that insults her. The ones that always tell the truth, even when it’s tough. The ones that have strong morals and stick to them.

Strong men are the ones that treat women with respect — even if they aren’t going to get anything in return. Even if it means that their love is going to be unreciprocated. And strong men are the ones that don’t think they deserve any credit for doing that, for being decent human beings.

Strong men are the ones that are impressed by — and not intimidated by — strong women.

They’re the ones that would brag about how their girlfriend makes more money than them instead of feeling emasculated by it. They’re the ones that would enjoy it when their girlfriend wore something sexy instead of getting jealous.

They’re the ones that would be happy that their girlfriend has a life of her own, because they have a life of their own.

Most of all, they’re the ones that appreciate what they have while they have it. They would never take their person’s love for granted. They always remember to cherish every second of it.

Strong men are the ones that you should save your heart for, because they’re going to give as much as they receive. TC mark
