It’s not always easy to tell if a man is actually in love with you or just really likes you. But there are a few surefire ways to tell so you can stop wondering.
You’re His Top Priority
He thinks about you often and keeps in contact frequently throughout the day. He includes you in his plans and appreciates it when you do the same for him. In conversation, he uses words like “us”, “we”, and “ours”. This indicates he subconsciously wants you to be a part of his future.
He Respects You and Treats You Well
When a man loves a woman he is attentive to her needs, feelings, and desires. In fact, if he’s really in love with you, chances are he will put your needs first over his own.
Often he will go out of his way to make your life better in some way and also show respect and courtesy to your friends and family as well.
A Man in Love Will Tell His Friends All About You
If a man shows you affection, especially in public, it clearly indicates he’s proud of you and wants everyone to see that you’re his main squeeze.
He wants all his friends and family to know about you and invites you to special family functions and even company gatherings.
Most of His Free Time is Spent With You
You’re the one he wants to see in his free time. He chooses to go everywhere with you and spend major holidays together such as Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Thanksgiving, and of course, Valentine’s Day.
If a Man Loves You, He Cares About Your Life
A man who truly loves you is genuinely happy when things go well for you. In challenging times, he’s the first one to comfort you and stay by your side. He’s the epitome of a stand-up guy who’s willing to go the extra mile on your behalf.
A love-smitten man will likely think of fun ways to surprise you in order to keep you happy. When faced with adversity or danger, he rushes to your side to show his clear intention of protecting you and everything about you.
Men in Love Don’t Cheat
If a man loves you, there is no way he is going to cheat on you with another woman. No excuses. Yes, men are hard-wired to spread their seed and procreate in the animal kingdom. But an honorable man who’s deeply in love with a woman wouldn’t think of it.
He only desires the object of his affection – you. Also, he treats your relationship with the utmost integrity and honor. He is trustworthy, noble, and loyal when it comes to your connection with him. He does what he says he’s going to do out of respect for you.
Actions Speak Louder Than Words
Never believe a man when he says “I love you” if his actions and behaviors aren’t aligned with his words. Does he say “I love you” and then turn around and text another woman secretly behind your back?
If so, he doesn’t truly love or respect you. Your gut instinct will let you know whether he’s simply feeding you a line for some ulterior motive or if he truly means it. Also, read his body language when he says it.
Trust your intuition – it’s right 100% of the time.
