Never ask a man - he likes you or not. First of all, decide c concept of love. And, based on this lead further arguments.
Let us remember what love
By definition, Erich Fromm "Love - is an active interest in the life and development of his partner"
Do you agree with this definition?
If you agree - keep reading if you do not agree - do not read on, because most likely you will not like what you hear. So, it all starts with a base of self-love. Remember the words of Jesus: "Love your neighbor as yourself." If you do not love yourself, accordingly, you can not claim that love from your partner - same shit your loved one does not slip. Therefore, you must first love yourself.
Understand - you love yourself or not - is very easy. When you are doing exercise or learn - you develop. Here in this moment, you love yourself. Therefore, when you want to determine - whether you, you ask yourself a question like: "Since I'm using this one develops or not?". If developing - you love, if you do not evolve, respectively - no
Consider the case of my practice
Secured man married 17-year-old girl who worked at that time barber. He told her the following sentence: "Why do you work? Throw a job and stay at home. " She agreed with him. And if it was familiar with our methods, then I do not obey or do not marry him. Thus, he did not provide it opportunities for development, because it is better to be a hairdresser than a housewife.
It took about 7 years old, they were already 6-year-old child, she was completely on her husband's welfare and, it so happened that he was killed. News of his case, this woman could not and went bankrupt in 2 years. And if continued to work, then surely it would be with the help of the salon opened, and able to provide for themselves in such a situation.
I always say to men: "Do not put your neck on the women themselves, even if you are very rich!»
After all, in fact, you kill yourself, for children - is a continuation of you, your family, and in this situation there is a risk that your wife will not be able to bring up your offspring
Thus, if the relationship with your partner do not lead to your development, whatever it was expressed, the speak of love here does not make sense. Its just not there.
