I notice, now, how terrible it is that women get so many messages that basically tell them not to expect much of men and set the expectation that you will be in an emotionally unsafe or distant relationship. It’s not true. My guy is incredible. Wants to talk through everything, but not in a cloyingly sensitivities way. He cares about taking care of my emotions. He holds me when I am freaking out. It’s amazing. I feel very lucky. He is a very good one. And cute too! And more age-appropriate 🙂
And you’ll definitely have to come to the wedding! And I will give you the sweetest testimonial. I will literally never forget ‘safe, heard and understood’ 🙂 And I reread the handouts!
