Dudes, you gotta take the risk of holding your heart out there, getting vulnerable, and saying what you’re thinking.

And that meant three things: He didn’t tell me how the relationship was going to end up, He told me how I could be a man during the process. I’m grateful for the things that I’ve learned, but it’s time to take a break from the whole dating thing. My desire for intimacy, for companionship, and for Eve is still as strong as ever.
Both girls appreciated when I said, “Hey, here’s where I’m at…”Call me old-fashioned, but I think the guy should be the one to initiate this conversation. When I asked the Lord if “none of your business” and I would work out, He told me to honor her.
Even though it didn’t end up working out, the possibility of a relationship was totally worth the risk of rejection. DTRs (defining the relationships) are legit, people. All of these things are true of you and me whether we’re single or married.
