I love this, almost 5 years in my relationship, been through a lose of a child and now having a two year old... times have been tough but we are still working through it together

This is brilliant. So totally true. 

If your man handles emotions and or situations immaturely, you need to tell him, do not put up with that. Also advise him on how to be more mature in those situations. Tell him how his immaturity affects you and the people around him. If he changes-great!

Very true!!

I absolutely love this blog. Thank you!

Wow! This is so true!!

Omg I love this article

Why love hurts?

All of this is so true of my fiancé and I! In fact just the other day we were out on a date and this really attractive waiter served us; I was almost tempted to tell my beau about how cute our waiter was. I almost did...but didn't lol. I am only gonna see that waiter once so it wasn't important
