WILMM: self control

Why I love my man reason #21

I recently got home from a trip where I was visiting my sweet friend. While I was there she gave me this book to read by Shaunti Feldhahn. 

The book describes the way men think and process. It describes how men are visual and are able to keep a "mental Rolodex" in their minds of what they have seen. And, because men are visual, it is a conscious effort and choice that they make to not let their eyes linger too long where they shouldn't.

As I was reading this book I realized something about my wonderful boyfriend. I have never seen him look at another woman. Really. Never. Not even in an appreciative and very innocent, "she's very pretty" kind of way. Knowing what I know from reading that book it also made me realize that the fact that I have never seen my boyfriend look at another woman isn't an accident. It's a testament to him honoring and respecting me. 

In the past I have never understood when girls talked about their boyfriend's commenting or looking at other women. My boyfriend has never uttered a word about any girl he has ever seen. I have never seen him linger, or take a double loo.

The safety and security that I have because of how he handles himself is irreplaceable. The longer I date this man and the more I learn about him the more I love him.
