FRIEND: men always GIVE hope. women always hope. the outcomes are always hopeless. true?
ME: Not true. The hopeful women just havent met the right guy yet.
There'll always be two sides to a coin. Women do give us guys hope sometimes. But is hope what they're giving or is it just friendliness? Also, there are some guys who're always hoping too - hoping beyond hope for miracles to happen. The outcome, however, isn't all that hopeless. If it hopelessness that one feels, then may I suggest that one have yet to reach the final destination yet. It's hard for feelings to be mutual. A girl may have feelings for a guy but the guy might not. Likewise, I may have feelings for a girl but she may, or may not, feel the same way about me. So what do we do?
I guess one can choose to be impatient and start making a move after another to see the outcomes. Or one can simply choose to hope. Afterall, "It is He who created you from a single soul, And made its mate of like nature in order that you might dwell with her in love...." (7:189)
Finally, one cannot be faulted for being too patient and being patient does not mean that one isn't trying. To quote John Keats from the movie Bright Star, "There is a holiness to the heart's affection that you know nothing about."
