Men and women display affection in different ways. While men can be cold and seemingly lacking emotions, women are more tender and loving. This is a kind of a stereotype that fits most men, although not all. And we should completely abandon it. While it might not look like that on the outside, men are emotional and will show you that they love you in their own unique ways.
You see, men don’t display affection by saying things like “I love you”. They do, however, do things that speak volumes about how they feel. Granted, it can be confusing at times, but if you learn how to read the signs, you can be sure that your man loves you. Love is in what you do, not what you say. What good are words when they don’t translate into actions? It’s easy to say “I love you”, but hard to put those words into action.
Check out the signs men use that show they’re in love with you below.
Most men don’t listen or care about what their partners say. If your man truly listens and doesn’t just nod his head in apparent ‘response’, it shows that he cares for you deeply. This is one of the surest signs that your man loves you. If your man is like this, you’ve hit the jackpot.
He Loves How You Look on Bad Days
Hey, we’ve all had bad hair days. Heck, sometimes we have an all-around bad-look day. If your man loves you on your worst days, he’s deeply and madly in love with you. You can safely wander around in your pajamas with your hair all messed up and he won’t care. He loves you for who you are, not how you look. That one’s a keeper.
He’s Not Afraid to Open Up
Men are not exactly open to the idea of showing their vulnerabilities to others. That includes their partner, especially in the early phases of a relationship. If you notice that your man is not afraid to let his guard down and he shows his true feelings in front of you, he’s the one.
He Treats Your Family and Friends with Respect
A man who doesn’t treat your family and friends with respect doesn’t respect you as well. If he does, however, you can be sure he loves you. It’s even better if he shows respect for your catty friends – this is a sign that he loves you from the bottom of his heart.
He’s Proud of You
A man who’s in love with you will be proud of being with you. He’s going to brag to his friends about you and proudly walk beside you in public. If your partner isn’t shy about saying how proud he is of you, it’s a sign that he loves you more than anything else.
He Sacrifices Everything for You
A man who’s in love with you will sacrifice anything to be with you. Making sacrifices is a sign of selflessness and maturity. Going above and below to make something work isn’t a sign of someone who loves you. If your man is ready to give up everything to be with you, it shows that he truly cares for you.
Your Happiness Means the World to Him
A man who’s truly in love with you will put your happiness in front of everything else. He’ll avoid doing stuff you don’t like just in order to keep you happy. Your smile is the most important thing in the world to him and he always tries to make you happy.
If this is what your man does, he’s a keeper.
He’s Always There for You
Being in love is a truly rosy experience when it’s all smooth sailing, but there will be tough times ahead. You’ll need a shoulder to cry on and if your man loves you, he will provide it. Men who truly love their women will always be there for them. When a man loves you, he’ll drop everything just to be there for you.
You don’t need any more proof of love – if he does this, he loves you beyond a shadow of a doubt.
