98 (who?)
Firstly, tell him that he doesn't necessarily need to be the “strongest” man in the world,
that if he cries, you won't look down on him for it,
that you won't call him weak.

Tell him that he doesn't have to like sports, or fishing, or football, or any of the “mainstream” things that boys are “supposed” to like.

Let him know that liking art, or dancing, or singing or acting doesn't make him gay, doesn’t make him any less of a man, it just makes him who he is.

A human being.

And for goodness sakes, tell him that blue does not have to be his favorite color, than he can indulge in pink, or purple or even magenta!

And to the girl who take on the task, remember please,  that it is not always the Knight who saves the Princess.

No, this time, the Princess may need to save the Knight.

Do not pour your problems onto him, rather, balance each other out.
Be a shoulder to cry on. A friend to be there. A love that never leaves.
Perhaps more than often, he'll lean on you. He'll cry to you, and squeeze you in agony, to the point where you can no longer breath.

You'll be his pillar, his center of life, the one who rises with him, and the one who falls with him.

Never forget this, for you are a Queen. And a good Queen takes care of all of her subjects, including the King.

And out of his agony, and out of his pain, your love will spring up like a flower.
And the exhaustion will be worth it in the end.
Just couldn't help it! I had to write one of my own, but I did it for boys, because lately, i haven't seen a lot of love for boys on Deviant Art. There's been a lot of literature building up girls, and while that's good and all, I figured the boys needed a little self boost.

I am also a guy. My feelings are almost mirrored by your words. This post means so much to me, it's almost indescribable.

I went to a psychologist recently, actually on a field trip, and it's been confirmed by every test they could cook up - I'm depressed, hostile, moody, impulsive, and 'vulnerable'. But I have always been looking for the one person I could give my heart to. I live in a small town where people like me are either shunned or friendzoned to the point of no return. I tried to resort to online dating, thought I'd finally found the one. Let her go 5 times before she wouldn't even mess with it anymore. I don't blame her.

My message from that story: You girls who take on the daunting task of being with guys like me... Be patient. It may not shine through right away, but our love for you burns just as bright as anyone else's. You are the only people who would do such a wonderful thing for us, after all.

You lucky bastards with the rarest catch in the world... Don't ever let her go. She is one of a kind. That means you have one shot and one shot ONLY. Anything after that is her polite way of letting you go slowly.

Oh, thank you so much for your words, and certainly, I'll take them to heart. Hopefully, one day you can branch off from your small town, and find an even bigger town with more girls, maybe you'll find the right one.

I'm going to show this to the men in my life who need to know it's okay to not be okay. :)

As my DA name implies, I am a guy.... I believe with every molecule of my being that being open to your feelings, letting them out, and not bottling them up is what makes a REAL man. Don't get me wrong; I do feel like men are supposed to be there for their families and loved ones, yet I also know that you WOMEN are more than capable of taking care of yourselves AND take care of us MEN as well.... As you can see, I agree with you.... Also, pink is one of my favorite colors!
