9 Things a Man Will Only Do If He Really Loves You
Does he really love me? He sent me this text, what does it mean? I think he likes me but I’m not sure. What signs should I be looking for? As a woman, you’ve asked these questions only about a thousand times. From the moment you understood what love felt like, at some point in your life, you’ve been with a guy whose intentions weren’t very clear. He buys you gifts, but that doesn’t mean he loves you. He opens the door for you and loves hanging out with you, but that doesn’t always mean he’s into you. Below are 9 things a guy will do for you, only if he’s head over heels in love with you.
1. He enjoys making you laugh
How often do you laugh when you’re with him? Does he go out of his way to ensure that you’re always smiling and happy? Does he make an effort to cheer you up after you’ve had a bad day? A man who loves you will not be bothered about looking sexy and macho. He’d rather make a fool out of himself knowing that at the end of it you will be smiling.
2. He creates time for you
A man who loves you will make time for you. There’s no such thing as being “too busy” or being “held up”. A man who values you will make time for you. He will find a way to balance work, other responsibilities and you. When you’re with a man who constantly changes plans or cancels at the last minute or doesn’t call for days simply because he’s too busy, then he’s subtly communicating that you’re not worth his time.
3. He’ll introduce you to his family
No man will introduce a woman to his family unless he is thinking about getting very serious with her. If he introduces you to his family, then it’s safe to say that he really does love you. His family is important to him and he’ll what their approval on the woman he wants to marry. If you pass the family test then you can be confident enough to start planning for the big day. On the other hand, if you’ve never met his family, and he always acts vague whenever you bring up the subject, then it may be because he has no plans of ever introducing you to his family.
4. He will make small changes
A man who loves you will make changes even without you telling him, just so that he can impress you. He will change his appearance. You’ll notice that he begins to put more effort into how he looks anytime he is around you. He will also change his behavior in order to appear as a better person for you.
5. Says you look beautiful, even when you know you don’t
If you’ve caught a cold, your nose is red, your skin is blotchy, your eyes are watering, and you feel terrible but he still looks at you like you’re the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen, then he could be in love with you. A man who’s only interested in you for your appearance, will avoid seeing you until you look your “best”.
6. He becomes overprotective of you
When a man begins to worry about things like how late it is when you get home, whether you’re eating well and whether you remember to take your medication then he’s beginning to become overprotective of you and constantly wants what is best for you. If you run to him about a bad day or a friend or colleague who hurt your feelings and he bristles in indignation on your behalf, then you have yourself a man who loves you.
7. You are in his future
You may be unaware of it, but he is making plans for his future that involve you in it. Whichever decisions he has in life, he is pursuing them, but with you in them. You will notice this when he begins to ask questions such as where you would want to settle, how soon would you want to start a family, and how many kids you would want to ask. When a man begins asking you such serious questions then there is a high chance that he is considering having a long-lasting relationship with you. He will also begin involving you in major decisions in his life that affect his future, and yours too.
8. He listens to your advice
Most men hate being told what to do and would rarely seek out the advice of a woman, but when a man loves you, your opinion matters to him. He will seek your counsel on many things. Men tend to think of women as “emotional” beings incapable of rational thought. They would hence prefer getting advice from the “boys”. But if you notice he’s bypassing his boys and comes straight to hear what you have to say about an issue of his, then he loves you.
9. He opens up about his feelings
Most women agree that men don’t like talking about their feelings. Men also don’t make it easy by always avoiding talking about their feelings. When a man loves you, he won’t have a problem opening up his feelings to you. He will do it voluntarily. However, you should also be careful of a man who tells you he loves you two days after meeting you. Such a man is probably leading you on and wants something from you. A man who loves you will take his time before he tells you. Not because he doesn’t want to say it, but because he knows when he eventually says it, he will mean every word and he would want it to mean something to you too.
With the tips mentioned above, you should be in a better position to understand whether your romantic interest is genuinely into you or simply treats you like a close friend.
