This photo fascinates me because it expresses a dynamic that you don’t often see between men and women, with a man taking on the adoring role and the woman drinking it all in.
My husband looks at me like this all the time. I act like it annoys me, but really… he’s the only man who has ever openly adored me and it still weirds me out. Its a shame that as women, particularly women of color, we have been acculturated to not be admired and adored… to think that men who do that for us, who look at us like this are at best, weird… and at worst, simps.
But I’ll tell you this, if he ever stopped looking at me like that, I’d die inside.
