    Often we 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.

    Totally, how you live your life speaks more

    eloquently about who you really are than who you say you are.

    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...👍

    A while ago I met a guy here on EP.

    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...

    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. 👍

    You Better Believe It!

    I was in a relationship

    where my ex would say I was her prince and that she loved me very much. I thought love was enough... When rejection is the only action you get from a loved one, you start to realize that actions speak louder than words. I also think this applies to anything; people say they are...

    Don't talk the talk, walk the walk!

    So many guys tell you what they'd do to you! Really!? It's not about making you feel hot, but getting their own rocks off! It's boring! Try visiting!

    Anyone can say that they're sorry,

    I'd honestly rather someone show me, prove to me that they really are and want forgiveness.

    Where I work, on the third floor of la coupole,

    we have put this into action. We react to a woman's desire of being beautiful, of enhancing her looks to startle her confidantes and help her feel sexier.I believe these actions speak louder than words about just what you may have taken for granted about your woman!

    You can't just tell me something

    and not follow through. It's true that actions speak louder than words. Don't tell me you care and then find it so easy to disappear. Don't tell me you'll always be there and then decide I don't matter.

    My ex bf says we're friends

    but he still hugs me like before, still sleeps hugging each other. I can feel his heart beats so fast when i'm next to him. But he will tell me, we're just friends and there's no us anymore. -- confusing --

    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...

    Absolutely. Behaviors are the external signs

    that lets you know what's going on inside of a person. I've always said people are good study materials. You teach people about yourself whether or not you realize that or not. I have the propensity to study people often- I'm an observer.
