One of the things a cousin of mine asked me recently about my boyfriend was, "Do you guys say you love each other?"
Suddenly I started to feel a little bit bad where I hadn't before. We don't.
And then I began to wonder why we don't. So we talked about it. I told him what my cousin said. I told him, "I guess I don't worry about it very much because sometimes you just know how someone feels from the way they treat you."
Well, gee, it could be that we've also been talking about getting married in little hints. In January he said, "I've been thinking about making a big change in my life regarding you." My heart started beating really fast. Wow! I started to think I was unloveable. It had been so long since I had dated anyone regularly.
Or maybe, the words really aren't going to mean anything unless they are backed up by behavior. Quite frankly, I'd much rather a man show me he loves me every day than to just hear it. Sometimes talk is cheap.
My boyfriend then said, "I don't say it very much because that makes it more real." He rubbed his cheek against my hand and kissed it. It's true. Sometimes you just know.
