Men usually keep their love under wraps. When they express love, they do so through actions designed to please her. He shows his love in spurts.
Women express love through closeness, nurturing, and intimacy. She shows her love continually, using words when necessary to keep the spirit moving. Also, she wants her ears filled with his words of affection and appreciation.
Today, women measure his love by her standards, and so he repeatedly falls short. If men were born for closeness, nurturing, intimacy, and continuous dialogue, they would have been born female.
The foundations of their love differ. His love builds on respect, and nothing affects his deepest respect more than how she handled and still handles her sexual assets. After that, his respect grows from her self-respect, character strength, and feminine nature. His love for her dwindles, if his respect tapers off.
Her love resides in her dreams. It springs alive when she realizes that he can and will adjust himself to accommodate her aspirations for their life together. Only the most egregious actions by him shatter her dreams and, consequently, love.
