    Yes! Especially with men.

    Men will tell me all kinds of things. But how often do their actions back up their words? I can count the times on the fingers of one hand. Stop talking and DO something!

    Those who dont agree with this proverb,

    please do this: Sit in front of a dog and keep saying that you love it and you shall bring a bone biscuit for it. Chant this many times. And your friend would get it a bone biscuit without chanting it to him. Dog will surely be happy with your friend. So this is not limited to...

    I'm a dancer. It's all action!

    I pull myself up onto my pole, I spin, the music grasps me, it's hands spinning me like a baby on a spinner! I am captive of my Muse. The clients are my putty, I have a clear window! I spin! It sings! I slowly take off my clothes (not that I was wearing much anyway) and the...

    I know this is mean but it was just a thought.

    . There was this woman who was really rude to me.. She had beautiful long blonde hair.. I wondered how my chewing gum would look in those golden locks.. Would she be rude if someone humbled her a lil bit??!!!

    You can say I love you to someone

    A true gentleman doesn’t backtrack on his

    words, but walks the talk. You rest assured that he only makes commitments that he intends to keep. It can be extremely annoying when a guy insists that he will do something, but never gets around to do it. A real gentleman keeps his promises...👍

    Actions have more value

    than sweet words. Don't say the words that you can't do, for you will just disappoint people close to you.

    There is nothing wrong with self-respect,

    Love is not an instant feeling.

    It needs time. Guy who says " I love you" right away is not sincere in his words. You cannot believe him just because he SAYS something. Make him SHOW you. You have to FEEL the love, not just hear the words. Demonstrating that LOVE is what really matters. 👍

    Our actions tell people much more about

    ourselves than what we say. We love to talk, and appear to be sincere. But it is our actions that really speak volumes. My favorite saying of all time is " If I love you I need not speak of my love you will know without any words". SOmeone once said " I left footprints in his...

    We spoke a lot online, even through Skype. I thought he was genuine, real and I felt a connection somehow... We live rather close to each other, so we were talking about meeting up in "real" life. He was eager, or so it seemed, but always found excuses. He was busy etc. But when...

    Often people hide behind words.

    And your deeper instinct will feel and sense the truth. For it isn't what is said, it is all the little colors and nuances shimmering behind those words.

    It’s easy for a guy to say he loves you,

    but DEMONSTRATING that love is what really matters. Guys tell girls they love them and promise 'happily ever after' all the time! They say this to keep you on the shelf. Their little shelf of ‘toys,’ so they can pull you down and play with you when they are bored with their...
