“Boo” means beautiful; a term of affection which originally was derived from the French word “beau”. Today, “Boo” is commonly used more as a popular slang word which references a cute nickname for a boyfriend or girlfriend. Boo is also used while flirting, or giving someone the idea that you admire or feel comfortable being around.
When I hear someone say “I love my “Boo”, I am thinking of a relationship that has moved toward a closer and more serious friendship. I would expect that these two individuals have begun developing their thoughts toward a love relationship and their discussions are about starting a future together. Their thoughts of a future should bring them closer in affection, closer to finding out more about each other, closer to what kind of life they would live, and hopefully closer to a bond of marriage.
Since God ordained marriage, I believe he knows and will let you know if you and your “Boo” are right for each other. God knows the best combination and the best fit for a lifetime companionship. Marriage is God ordained. Marriage is the foundation for building a home and family. The purpose of marriage is to become “one”. In order to become “one” your wedding vows should cut the cords of dependency on others and teach you to learn to depend upon each other. But, in the meantime there is plenty of work for you and your “Boo” to do.
Before the proposal of marriage and as you and your “Boo” starts thinking of “taking it to the next level” you should start by asking yourself these questions: Do I love myself? I am able to take care of myself? Am I trying to change or remake who I am? Am I trying to change or remake my “Boo”? Do I really “Love” my “Boo”? Your answers should shed some light for you and point you in the right direction to what you need to start doing.
You should feel free and safe in expressing your feelings and thoughts to each other. Learn how to control your emotions and act mature. Don’t hold a grudge toward you “Boo”. Fight well together, agree to disagree and move on in an argument. Don’t use what has been confided in confident to you against your “Boo”. Respect and trust each other privacy and independence. Don’t be jealous of your “Boo”. Meet and greet your “Boo” family members, friends and colleagues. Take interest in and support each other careers and undertakings. Don’t let lust be the driver of your interests. Enjoy meaningful conversations. Be dependable. Be someone that your “Boo” can love and count on.
