A few months ago comedian and radio talk-show host Steve Harvey published a book titled, ‘Act Like A Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy and Commitment’ as a means to help women understand the men they were involved with.
In the book Steve implies that it doesn’t matter what background a man has, “All men basically think the same way.” I’d have to agree with him on that one because men generally do think alike. Steve went on to say the way a man expresses his love for a woman is by displaying the following 3Ps:
1) Professes – a man verbally professes his love for the woman he cares about to the world.
2) Protects – a man protects the woman he loves
3) Provides for – a man provides for the woman he loves
I agree with the last two statements, protects and provides for, because this is what you would normally see in Nature. However, a man professing his love as a legitimate expression of his true feelings leaves a lot to be desired.
First, men profess their love for women all the time, but any woman will tell you a man’s profession of undying love is not something you’d want to bet the house on. Secondly, no creature in Nature professes his love for another female in this manner. Have you ever seen a lion telling a lioness, “I love you, My Dear” within earshot of other males? I didn’t think so.
Instead, I think a more apt word is Promote. In this context Promote means to help make someone better. You see this happening in Nature all the time – parents teaching their young how to hunt and to avoid danger are great examples. When you love someone that’s what you do by default.
So here are my 3Ps: – 1) Protecting 2) Providing 3) and Promoting. That’s a surefire way to tell that someone is really in love with you.
