I chose to say that I'm willing to take baby steps to prove my love to him.  We're not together so we don't fight or argue over anything. My only disagreement on my end is that I want to be with him yet he wants to take things slow and it's hard being patient. Giving in cost me nothing but my time to be patient and understanding that I need to prove my love is unconditional and willing to yield. This will help me by realizing that nothing is as important as love, as pride is hurtful to both people so let go of pride as love is not prideful but yielding.
