A man who loves hard will care for you, listen to you, and adore you. He won’t drain your energy or make you feel like your generosity is one-sided.

A man who loves hard prefers date night to encompass you and only you. He’s a man who does more than penetrate you; he is a man who knows every inch of your body.

A man who loves hard wants to know your fears, worries, insecurities, phobias, doubts, and wants. Most of all, he wants to love you through every last one of them.
A man who loves hard knows every layer of your being: your positives and your negatives, from your early-morning messy look to your flawless red-carpet look.

“We’ve got this.”

A man who loves hard leaves love notes for you to find scattered throughout your life, not because it’s Valentine’s Day or your Anniversary, but just because. He notices the little things you do, and won’t miss a chance to express his appreciation towards you to elevate you and to make you feel important. He knows at a bone-deep level how much of a prize you are.
A man who loves hard wants nothing more than to assist in your life’s ever-expanding greatness.
Instead of being a roadblock, this man will push you forward to live the life of your dreams. He’s not the man who’ll envy you for your achievements and the grand vision you hold for yourself. He’ll celebrate with you and support you. Your successes don’t threaten him; he relishes them.
A man who loves hard wants to integrate you into his life and bring you around his family and friends. He wants them to love you and for you to love them. Sees you to be an extension of him. Wants to include you in all important events and milestones.
This man will open up your world to you, and you will gladly do the same for him.
You see, a real man leads with his love.
People feel his love when he enters the room.
There’s no questioning his intentions.
You will not have to wonder.
He will wrap you in his arms and won’t let go.
A real man loves hard.
You deserve hard love. You deserve fierce love.
Be with a man who loves like this, and you will begin to access a depth of love that you previously could not access.
