Summertime, Summer Love, Go With the Flow…


So I just finished grilling my long-distance “Boo”, who I recently saw a few weeks ago.  While driving to the airport, “Do you have a girlfriend?  Do you love me?  Are you my boyfriend?”  So elementary right?  What’s wrong with asking?  First, he looks at me like, “woman, you are crazy”, then simply says, “if I had a girlfriend, I wouldn’t be here with you”.  (uh huh *rolling my eyes*)  And “you never ask someone if they love you, because people can say anything.  You have to let people show you with their actions”.  Aw, such a sweet response…(Duh!)  We all know this right?  We both agreed that a person isn’t going to say no.  You really do need to allow things to unfold naturally instead of trying to force something to be.  I told Boo that I know that he loves me…of course he smiled and walked away.  Now, the verdict is still inconclusive as to whether or not I have a “boyfriend”.  You know men usually shut down after question #2.

He believes I’m crazy; and I’m so freakin’ quirky y’all.  I don’t think he knew that.  Lol!  Will Boo still love me flaws and all?  I guess we’ll see…  Little does he know, this experience is continuing to add to my Self-Love development.  Insecurity is never attractive.  You can get a pass for not really being as cool as someone may have thought you were; but if you find yourself asking the type of questions I did often, then that can be a turn off.  Once is good enough just to see what page you are both on; because no one wants to waste their time with someone who doesn’t intend on being in a serious relationship.  It’s different if you only want to play around though.  I always say trust God’s timing…seek the truth and it will be revealed.  Today’s lesson, a person’s actions will tell you what they don’t say…enjoy the Spirit of fresh summer love and remember to protect your body and just as importantly, protect your heart…
