There are times when I think women try to test the men in their lives. Call it insecurity or manipulation, but every now and then women want to be assured that they are loved. In our minds, it takes something tangible or some grand gesture to prove that we truly matter.
Is it fair or rational? Uh NOPE. This does not stop us from doing crazy things and asking for way too much from our guys. My friend Vince said his girlfriend got really upset when he refused to get a tattoo of her on his arm. He has no tattoos and is not interested in getting one. Yet she somehow feels that his refusal to get one for her means he doesn’t love her as much as he claims to. Would you ever get a tattoo for someone if they asked you?
I admit that I have done some pretty stupid things to prove that I loved my guy. I don’t know if it was that whole “love is blind” thing or if I was just caught up. Sometimes when people know they have your heart, they take advantage, though. Has this ever happened to you?
Do you ever feel that you have to prove that you love someone?
