I remember quite a few years ago, a book and a movie came out called “He’s Just Not That Into You”. I was dating a lot at the time, and mom bought me the book, but, since I never read it, I can only go by the title and the few parts of the movie that I saw. Basically, this best-selling book was supposed to teach women how they can tell if a man really likes them or not.
Like its rocket science.
I was always under the impression that if a man liked you, he would pursue you. You wouldn’t have to read all of these book, watch these movies and try all of these tips and tricks that are constantly plastered across the covers of books, magazines and billboards. Either the man likes you, or he doesn’t. The same goes for when you’re married.
Yes, I do agree that men and women express themselves differently. The general population of women like to discuss and fuss, while the general population of men like to be understood. They don’t want to talk at length about anything. They want to work, provide and be understood.
Or maybe that’s just my husband.
One thing that I do know is, if a man loves you, you won’t have anything to interpret. He’ll make it known not just for you, but for the whole world.
Song of Solomon 6:8
“There is no one like her on earth,
never has been. never will be.” (The Message)
Now, please understand, I am in no way, shape or form degrading the male species. I love men. I married one! However, their ways are not exactly complex. Either they like something or they don’t. There usually is no in between. Your husband chose you to propose to, which means he liked more of your character traits than he disliked. He loved you. There was no other woman for him. I really don’t care what he says. A man will not do something if he doesn’t want to do it. That’s just the way that it is. So if your husband proposed to you, showed up on your wedding day and didn’t run screaming out of the doors of the church or courthouse the day your got married, it’s because he wanted to.
Your husband could never find another you. You’re one of a kind! You love him more than anyone else in this world. You take care of him and his children, and love his family like you were born into it. You accept him, flaws and all, and only mildly complain. You complement him: where he falls short, you’re the strongest. No one is better suited for him than you.
So the next time you are in the grocery store and you see a magazine with the heading “How to Know if Your Man is Still Into You”, look down at your ring and realize that you don’t have to take a quiz.
He still comes home to you at night, right?
Then he’s still very much into you…
