Usually, dating isn't as easy as most of us wish it was. It's already difficult enough to put yourself out there and open up to someone new, but even after that, you still got a mission to figure out the person's true intentions and whether your feelings towards each other truly align.

Recently, Twitter user @AfroFlytina asked fellow women to spread some much-needed positive vibes by sharing stories of what helped them figure out that their partners genuinely love them. The post has quickly gone viral and it currently has over 77k likes along with more than 17k quote tweets.

Same. And when he had his surgery, I was right there for him too. I still think he does more, tho! He'll come in the room I'm in, just to check and see if I need anything. Sigh, just him....

That's the best kind. When you can go on caring for someone after a breakup.

I think anyone in a relationship who wants to make it work, will ask the other if they're happy, what bothers them, etc. Sometimes you don't know unless you ask.

I've survived decades of abuse, worked very hard on managing my mental health and everything I have had to overcome after my life imploded 3 years ago. He was unhappy with me because I didn't go to him first when I needed help; I was so used to being let down, so having someone who WANTS to be there for me is a priceless treasure. He makes me feel safe and cherished, no-one has ever made me feel like this before. That's love.

ya'll criticising 'cause you say he does not know what a vagina is or it is the uterus - my woman had a problem with her VAGINA - why would you think a vagina cannot have problems. this thread is for encouragement, not "grammer correction". good grief some of you people. people.

Sounds like your guy is caught in a toxic relationship. If you disagree just picture the above scenario with genders reversed

You shouldn't lose weight just from not taking vitamins. I hope you see a doctor.
