It is often said that actions speak louder than words. So, when it comes to love and relationships, actions are probably the most assuring way to find out how your partner feels about you. At the end of the day, a person’s behavior can tell you much more than their words ever will.
Words may lie to you, but actions will always guide your way to the truth.
If you’ve been wondering whether your lover feels the same way that you do, here are 9 ways to tell if they truly, madly and genuinely love you:
1. THEY WANT TO SPEND TIME WITH YOU
A person who truly cares for you will find time to be with you. No matter how busy their agenda is or how exhausted they are, they will always make time for the people who matter the most.
If your lover is more than thrilled to invest some quality time into your relationship, that means that they care about you.
2. THEY ALWAYS ASK ABOUT YOUR DAY
Communication is the ultimate key to a loving and thriving relationship. So, when a person behaves indifferently and avoids talking to their partner, that is a serious sign that the relationship has taken its wrong turn. But, when a person shows interest in their partner’s life and wants to communicate with their lover on a daily basis, it means that they care.
3. THEY TRUST YOU
It is simple. A partner who doesn’t show signs of extreme, irrational jealousy, doesn’t interrogate you, or snoop through your personal belongings, is a partner who trusts you unconditionally.
That doesn’t mean that they don’t want to know what you’ve been doing. It means that they care for you and respect you too much to actually violate your privacy.
4. THEY SUPPORT YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
If your lover encourages your work, motivates you to never give up and inspires you to pursue all of your dreams, they’re on your team and they love you more than words can say. Do not doubt that. Not even for a second.
5. THEY RESPECT YOU
You probably think that for one relationship to survive and thrive, both partners need to be on the same exact page about everything. Well… I would say almost. Why?
I know for a fact that you can be on completely different ends of a spectrum and still live happily ever after. You can have many opposing opinions and still respect each other. And that, if you ask me, is the mark of true, genuine love.
6. THEY INCLUDE YOU IN EVERY PART OF THEIR LIFE
This is really important. When your partner becomes intimate, they start to see you with different eyes. All of a sudden, you’re not just their girlfriend/boyfriend. You are much more than that. You are their entire universe.
They start to plan their future with you, and they start to include you in every part of their life. Everything makes more sense because you are there.
7. THEY TALK TO YOU ABOUT THEIR PAST
I’ve learned this from my own personal experience. Sharing bits from our past relationships or our past experiences and spending more time with each other reliving old memories, can help us strengthen the bond with our partners.
8. THEY ARE WILLING TO GO OUT OF THEIR WAY FOR YOU
It is simple. It’s not about having or not having time. It’s all about our priorities.
If your partner goes out of their way to make your relationship a healthy, careless and loving place, that means that they genuinely love you and want to spend their life with you. If they are willing to risk something for you, that means that their number one priority is loving you.
9. THEY MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOUR SELF
Last but not least, a partner who cares about you and truly loves you knows how to boost your self-confidence and make you the happiest person alive. They do that by simply loving you.
They love you because you are your true self. They love you because of your true colors. In their eyes, you are the most beautiful human being that ever existed. And they do not hesitate to show you that.
