Relationships are often riddled with uncertainties and doubts. That is why we sometimes need the validation and proof that we’ve made a perfect choice.
And there’s nothing more special and magical than hearing those three words, especially when you feel they’re uttered with a complete sincerity and devotion.
However, considering that nowadays the purest “I love you” has lost its true meaning, I must say that ultimately what matters the most is the thing that is done, not spoken. A person’s action can show you so much more than any word could ever do.
So, when it comes down to relationships and you feel a bit worried that your guy is not very vocal about his feelings, despite the fact that he’s constantly there for you, it is normal to feel a bit confused.
But how would you know if he really loves you?
Well, here are 8 things he does that are a clear indicator he’s madly in love with you, and he might be still looking for the real words to express his feelings:
1. HE MAKES SACRIFICES FOR YOU
Men who are deeply in love, have a terrible discomfort of the thought of their lady love being unhappy, and if there’s something they can do to prevent it, they’ll go above and beyond, until the issue is eventually settled.
If your man is willing to sacrifice himself for you, that’s definitely one of his ways to tell you just how much he loves you.
2. HE IS A GOOD LISTENER
One of the key parts of a healthy relationship is having an open communication system. Being there for your loved one, listening and offering a shoulder to cry on is the essential rule in love.
Having a man who’ll sit beside you and will listen to you whenever your spirits are down is a blessing. And that completely confirms the phrase that actions do speak louder. You only need to be able to hear them.
3. HE ISN’T AFRAID TO BE VULNERABLE IN FRONT OF YOU
And if you are in a relationship with a man who is comfortable enough to undress his soul naked in front of you, then you are one lucky girl.
Few are the people who walk this world with their hearts on the sleeve. Few are those who aren’t afraid of anything when it comes to love.
4. HE IS PROUD OF YOU
You can be sure he’s smitten with you if you hear him bragging about you on most occasions. He’s proud to have you by their side and is not afraid to show it.
It’s another way of saying “I love you” before he actually says the words. Be patient. Your guy might be searching for the real moment.
5. HE CHERISHES YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE
We go through life acting a certain way, we care what people think of us and bend over backward to make them like us.
But, when that real relationship comes, we become aware that if a person truly loves you, they will love every piece of you. They’ll unconditionally devote to you and love you for the way you are. Flaws and everything.
If you have someone who cherishes every version of you, you have a guy who truly loves you.
6. HE TREATS YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY WITH THE UTMOST RESPECT
When you love someone, it comes naturally to respect the people who are significant to them. Their closest circles.
So, if your man shows a great deal of respect and kindness towards your loved ones and he actually enjoys spending time with your friends and family, you know it’s real.
7. HE IS ALWAYS SINCERE WITH YOU
As humans, we ultimately need stability. We need a relationship and a person who’ll be willing to go all the way and be straightforward about all of their deep feelings. At least that’s something that has a high significance to me.
So, if your guy has no problem sharing all the dirty bits and even the slightest issues in his life, you’ve got yourself a keeper. Sincerity and openness is a key ingredient for maintaining a strong, healthy relationship.
8. HE’S GOT YOUR BACK, ALWAYS
You are the number one priority on his list. There’s no place he would rather be in life, so it’s very natural he will always have your back.
If your boy goes out of his way to make you safe and does everything to keep that smile of yours sparkle, you don’t need anyone to tell you if he loves you.
He has found something very precious, that he will make sure to keep it safe as long as he breathes. The words will come naturally.
