LIKE I have this massive problem trusting guys when they express emotions because I swear I’ve just been lead to believe that young men can’t have any *serious* emotions towards people except like hate or obsession or like mate mentality or sexual feelings or awe but.
Ughhhhhhhhhhhhh I know that this isn’t true in most cases
But yeah I guess I’m just MASSIVELY surprised and kind of weirded out (but in a good way?) that a guy (like the one in that photo) would actually do that? Because I’m never really had that done for me before and I’ve never really done it for another? Maybe I have and I just can’t remember it :s like I had a ring and necklace bought for me and that was SO nice and I was uber surprised that someone would do that?
Like with my parents and stuff they don’t celebrate anniversaries (they never got married), they don’t smooch eachother in front of me, they don’t take long, romantic weeks away from me, they don’t buy eachother presents on their birthdays, they don’t even sleep in the same bed (dad snores shockingly and you get over the novelty of sleeping together after 30 years I think). So yeah… not heaps romantic people
But I think I am in some senses. I’m very open about my feelings. I’m never ashamed but I feel like they’re never fully requited and I wonder if they ever will be.
I think it’s just that I think SO much about the people i’m in relationships with (friends and boyfriends), I feel so much empathy… I want to please them always. But isn’t that normal? Don’t you want to make the people you love, happy?
