    The meaning of true love from a man.

    By Elizabeth Rossi, freelance writer

    I hate to say this but most women will go their entire lifetime and never experience the meaning of actual true love.

    It's even slightly depressing to think that most people will never understand how powerful this picture actually is; a prime example of how men should be treating their partner with everyday that passes.

    We unfortunately live in a generation with men who have no idea what it takes to be a real man.

    Let me give you a couple examples of a real man ......

    A real man asks about your day and genuinely cares about the answer.

    A real man respects your boundaries and never forces you to anything you're not ready to do.

    He makes time for you, and takes that time to learn and understand who you are as a person.

    A real man consistently shows you the definition of effort with every day that passes.

    He will call you randomly throughout the day just to check on you and your mental health.

    A real man is undeniably committed to you and looks for new ways to fall in love with you with every day that passes.

    He makes protecting your heart a number one priority.

    A real man never makes permanent decisions based on temporary emotions.

    He never confuses you on where you stand in his life.

    A real man apologizes when he is wrong and stays true to his character.

    He doesn't mind hurting other people's feeling to protect yours.

    A real man gives you affection without sexual expectation.

    A real man refuses to entertain any women that isn't you.

    He has genuine intentions with you from day one and shows you how it truly feels to be a priority rather an option.

    A real man will help you heal from the trauma that nobody apologized for.

    A real man values you and would never put themselves in a position to lose you.

    Take my advice and wait for the man that never let's you fall asleep at night questioning your own self worth.

    I'm not saying there aren't some truths in there but the idea that women are broken things needing a man to hold them together is so patriarchal and condescending.

    A "real" man is someone willing to be a demanding, self-centered, egotistical female"s door mat is what I am reading here in this list created by a . . .female. That list works both ways equally.

    Statements like that tell me more about the woman writing than about men.

    Yes it does sound like she she has been wounded.

    I think the title should be - A Real Husband

    A real husband will learn most of that stuff in the OP if he simply pays attention and loves his wife, marriage and family.

    Christian men are terrified of strong, independent women, that's why they love this stuff, it just reinforces the Bibles sexist attitudes.

    Nicolau- Christian men are terrified of strong, independent women, that's why they love this stuff, it just reinforces the Bibles sexist attitudes.

    I consider myself Christian, but certainly not "terrified" of strong independent women.

    What some may consider the Bible's sexist attitudes others may see it as simply highlighting human nature.

    Interestingly, the Bible recommends in the new testament that men not marry. Jesus himself adviced against it. And human nature, imperfect as it is, confirms that wisdom.

    Strong independent women intimidate boys and excite men 😊
