Just like girls, boys want someone who can fight for them and make them a priority. Boys crave for time, attention, affection and effort too. They get jealous, they sometimes overthink. They get scared of losing their special someone to another. They do have insecurities and thoughts about not being good enough. They get hurt and shed tears too. They are just as human as girls are, capable of being selfish, committing mistakes, making wrong choices. The only difference is that girls often vent things out, boys keep it to themselves. The point here is that boys and girls are equals, entitled to feel the same set of emotions with varying intensity. So never ever think that you are the only one hurting or that you are the only one who needs the comfort of a warm hug or the reassurance of an “I love you.” Your partner needs all those too; you both do.
