I went to the emergency room the other night and my boyfriend sat with me for almost eight hours. He saw me at my absolute worst. I passed out right next to him. He saw me freak out over a large needle. He saw my face go completely white after my blood pressure dropped. He saw me pretty much loopy on pain medication. Would he have done all that if he didn't love me?
Maybe he would have. Loving and being in love are two different things. Sometimes people in love aren't very loving. Avoid those people, they are horrible to live with. But just because someone is loving towards you doesn't mean they are in love with you. Your boyfriend was kind when you were in the ER. A boyfriend who didn't care enough to do the same wouldn't be much of a boyfriend. But it doesn't necessarily mean he's in love with you and wants you for a lifetime partner. There are no guarantees, even in marriage. If you want to know how he feels, you have to ask him.
