How to tell if somebody is genuinely interested in you/values you, etc. (family, friends, etc.): If you removed all of your effort from the equation would any communication remain between you? If not, there is nothing there and you deserve better.
If I hurt you my dear I am sorry. It takes a man to admit I was wrong and I was. I don't want you to ever think that I don't love you, no that will never be the problem. The problem always has been and always will be that I love you too much
