It’s often hard for the opposite sex to read each other. Women seem too complex for men to comprehend, and men seem simple, unthinking, and unpredictable to women. If you know what you’re looking for, however, there are always signs you can read in a person’s behavior. Add that to the fact that we live in an age of insecurity and anxiety, it can be hard to tell if when he says “I love you” he means it, or if he feels it even though he hasn’t said it yet.
When issues come up between you two a man in love is not trying to win the argument or relationship, he’s genuinely worried about the threat to the relationship and that something may be hurting the person he loves. This lets him see and own up to his role in the issue.
You are Always Beautiful to Him
In a relationship goes on, faults are noticed. To someone in love, those faults make them fall deeper in love as that show complexity and depth in the partner. A man in love will never find you not to be beautiful because he loves all of you, even the bits you don’t love.
He Tries with Your Friends and family
To him, the people that are important in your life are important to him too now. It’s because he wants to fit into your life and wants to ever strengthen your other relationships if possible. He’ll express this by showing a keen interest in your friends and family.
A man in love is not afraid to show his emotional and venerable side to the person he is in love with. This will be very noticeable because usually, a man will hide that side to the best of his abilities from everyone except maybe his mother.
He willingly spends most of his free time with you.
Not only will he want to spend time with you, but it will be his idea. You won’t have to come update ideas or ways to see him more, he will just naturally gravitate toward you. He will also try and monopolize your Friday and Saturday nights (i.e. date nights). Not only does he genuinely want to see you, but he knows good and well that if he doesn’t book your time then, another guy could.
He only has eyes for you.
A guy who is falling for you will announce that he’s not seeing other people in hopes that you will also get off the market. He will cancel his online dating profile and put out old flames because he both won’t want to jeopardize things AND he will want you to himself.
You won’t get that icky feeling that he is dating other women at the same time as you. He will try and move your relationship toward exclusivity as well. It is normal for a guy who really likes you to want to take you off the market and ensure that his competition doesn’t do it first.
As a man falls in love, he may actually become rather clingy. In new passionate relationships, this is often reciprocal and you two spend all your free time together. If it is unbalanced though it’s not the end of the world because over time this ‘loving clinginess’ fades a bit.
Lift You Up
A man in love will be your biggest cheerleader, no matter what. If he’s rooting for you, we’re rooting for him.
There’s a significant difference between listening and hearing. When a man is involved and interested in what he’s hearing, or it’s being said by someone he loves, he’s more than likely to actually listen to what’s being said. If he’s in love with you, he will almost always pay this kind of loving the attention to you.
Dream With You
A man who sees you as a permanent fixture in his future will dream aloud with you and invest as much time and energy into your goals as he does his own.
Show You Off On Social Media
When he’s head over heels and proud of it, you’ll make regular appearances on his social media feed.
Cook For You
Whether he can throw down in the kitchen or not, if he’s willing to dirty a few pots and pans to surprise you with a home cooked meal, he’s auditioning for the role of “keeper.”
He Makes Sacrifices
When your partner is in love with you and committed to the relationship, he will do anything in his power to be with you. The sacrifices he makes can take form in many ways, he could move to be close to you or something as small as spending a romantic night with you instead of a night at the sports game.
He’ll get jealous, there is definitely too much jealousy. That possessive and obsessive jealousy is something to look out for, but a man that loves you is going to have little flair ups of jealousy from time to time. It’s actually really cute.
Celebrate Your Presence in His Life
When a good man falls for a great woman, he’s smart enough to know that’s cause for celebration. If he values and cherishes your time with him, keeps him close, ladies.
He contacts you first.
Guys fall in love in our absence. If he’s thinking about you, he’ll naturally be drawn to contacting you. On the reverse token, if he’s gone dark or you feel like you are always the one texting first, watch out.
He wants you to meet his family.
In the long term, how you blend into his family is often an important consideration for a family-minded man. If he sees you sticking around long term, he’ll want you to meet them and vice versa. If he considers your relationship casual, he won’t get you anywhere near his family.
That.. look of love.
Men in who are in love have a way that they look at you. Sometimes it’s hard to see it yourself, but when your friends meet him, they will either see that he has fallen for you or they won’t.
These signs he loves you cannot be forced! You can’t go in there thinking “well you’re not doing X so that means you don’t love me.” Avoid! Don’t fall into this emotional trap! If things are going really well with your guy, cultivate a carefree attitude of happy enjoyment rather than serious over analysis. Enjoy the present moment.
