As a man, sometimes the hardest statement to make is "I need help" let alone "I need YOUR help". Not really knowing if women do it intentionally, but they tend to take the responsibility of being that help and push that he needs. For the man that she's interested in, she'll sacrifice things. She'll even give him opportunity after opportunity to get it right. I used purple and blue in her pants to represent the royalty and loyalty she possesses. The bandages on his feet represent the wear and tear he's been through. He sits alone because man really has no one to actually share his deepest thoughts with. His eyes in shock because he realizes that there is a woman willing to work with him despite him being surrounded by nothing.
