Many men believe it is a well-kept secret that they, too, have hearts. They are supposed to be manly men, impervious to the trappings and pitfalls of that emotion called love. Love is a thing they can simply take or leave. It doesn’t affect them to the extent that it affects the fairer sex. Men, for the most part, are immune to Cupid’s arrow.
When the “right one” comes along, she will hold his heart in the palm of her hand and mold it like soft butter. He will want nothing more than to see her smile and to hear her speak his name through that smile. There will be instances when she drops the soft mush that is his heart from her hands and stomps on it as she walks away; there will be instances when he will try to play it cool around his buddies, pretend that he doesn’t even remember her name, and they will laugh and joke, all the while remembering the one who did the same to their own hearts. For the truth is, no human being is immune to love when it is true, even on the most basic level.
It doesn’t have to be full-blown, seeing-fireworks-and-shooting-stars love. It can be simply loving every minute spent in one another’s company and feeling the pin prickles in one’s heart when you part, even for a few hours. And just as women are wooed by words that speak deeply of love, men are as well. Here are some words of enlightenment about love that even the most macho of men can relate to:
01. “Love is a serious mental disease.”
(Pretty much every guy’s definition of falling in love)
02. “Love is a game that two can play and both win.”
(Turn it into something that sounds like a competition or a game and ANY guy will be interested immediately)
03. “Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart, and the senses.”
(Any man who has ever experienced love will understand this, only they will express it by saying that love makes them stupid)
04. “There is no remedy for love but to love more.”
(This is deep, and any man whose heart has been touched by love will instantly know the truth of it)
05. “The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.”
(Leave it to a heartthrob like Johnny Depp to put it so plainly, so that any man can relate and understand love by a simple example)
06. “Love involves a peculiar unfathomable combination of understanding and misunderstanding.”
(This is just confusing enough to make sense to a man who is in love)
07. “Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while.”
(This one will resonate with both men and women, but the male heart will feel it on a deeper level as it speaks to immortality)
08. “Love is not measured by how many times you touch each other, but by how many times you reach each other.”
(Another “deep” quote that men will understand, having loved and shared himself emotionally with a woman)
09. “Passion makes the world go round. Loves just makes it a safer place.”
(Love soothes the senses when passion has them exploding in a million different directions)
10. “In dreams and in love, there are no impossibilities.”
(Again, make a man feel like he can do anything, and you have his attention; love makes anything possible)
It is quite comical to watch a man who has come face-to-face with true love attempt to thwart it. Most will give up and give in and enjoy it for what it is; but oh, those stubborn few! Their hearts are melted before our very eyes, their view of the entire world is changed. Words regarding love, and especially those that have withstood the test of time as well as those spoken by their own idols and heroes, become sage wisdom to the newly-christened male heart. They soon find that love will hurt like hell sometimes and it will feel pretty damn good sometimes, and for most men, that’s good enough.
