There is something amazing that happens when you love a boy. You become someone different, someone new. You bring out the best parts of each other and change each other's lives completely. There's something you must remember though: as much as your boy should love and cherish you, you should also love and cherish your boy.
When you love a boy, you should make sure he's happy. Don't sacrifice your own happiness for him, but remember that he has feelings too. Sometimes compromise is necessary, especially if you're being a little stubborn. Remember though, to stand up for what you believe in. Making your boy happy doesn't mean you should brush off your own wants and needs; you should make sure you are paying attention to his happiness. Boys need someone to look after them too.
When you love a boy, you should support him. His goals and dreams were there before you came along and he shouldn't have to give up on them when you become a part of his life. Support him in the same way you'd want him to support you and make sure he knows you always have his back. You should also push him to go the extra mile. If it's a sunny Saturday afternoon, make sure he remembers that big test he has to study for. Make sure you're watching out for the well being of your boy.
When you love a boy, give him his space. Sometimes it's hard to spend time away from the one we love, but remember everyone needs time alone. If he wants to spend time with friends or family for a day, trust him and remember that you'll be together again soon enough.
When you love a boy, trust him. Trust is one of the most fundamental parts of a relationship; believe your boy when he tells you he's busy or too tired to do something. Believe your boy when he tells you he loves you. Nobody is a mind reader, so we have to trust the ones we love. This doesn't mean you can't get mad at him or talk through your anger. Trust him to want to work things out and come to a solution that will make you both happy.
When you love a boy, fight for him. Even if you're both horribly angry, fight for each other. Always ask yourself, is my silence worth the loss of my boy? If your answer is yes, then he's not really your boy anymore. I have a boy and I love him. He's my best friend and I care about him more than anything in the world, but I haven't lost my ability to be selfish. Sometimes I forget about his feelings and sometimes I make mistakes, but in the end, I always fight for my boy and he always fights for me.
When you love a boy, make sure he knows it and make sure he takes care of you too.
