My Man

There are few sweeter words a man can hear than He’s my man.

A woman declaring her…well, what exactly is she declaring? She is not making an ownership claim, although there is a shading of that. Fidelity.

For sure she implies there’s only one, and one above all others. Singularity.

And there is a subtext of the corollary statement, which is …and I’m his woman. Reciprocity.

For clarity and brevity this statement – He’s my man – is a champion. Proclaiming her status to the world like that removes any doubt about her allegiance. And not just to everyone else. She’s telling him she’s with him. End of story.

Fidelity. Singularity. Reciprocity. Not a bad trio for successful coupling.
