He Loves Me He Loves Me Not

“I’m not asking for much, only…your voice…
My voice? If I give away my voice than how could I ever…

You’ll have your looks!
Your pretty face!

The importance of

(para. 3) When a man sits on his hands while talking with you, this means he is trying to control what he wants to say. He is trying to impress you and wants to make sure he says the right thing at the right time....
