As a relationship continues for some length in time, the newness of it wears off. That never-ending-grin causing interaction between new couples and the excitement of their rendezvous’ give way to the daily grind of work and kids and ordinary life. Gone are the special words of mutual attraction and the romantic courtship that tied those hearts together. Therefore, the question for a woman becomes how they know their man still loves them.
He is interested in your life – Men, who care, will care. This is the first rule to remember. If he becomes self-possessed and does not seem to wonder how your life is going, then questions are reasonable. A man who loves you will never stop asking about your life and wondering how he can make it better for you.
He shares your favorite pastimes – While not a deal breaker, any man who continues to be active in your favorite pastimes, even though you understand he does not like them, loves you. One of the most important things for a man in a relationship is connection. The context and content does not matter. He just wants to be with you.
He calls you frequently – Does it really matter why he is calling? Are you not glad that he is? A man who is involved with his relationship and in love with you will always call. When there is a thought on his mind and he wants your opinion, when he just wants to see if you are ok, and sometimes it will be just because he misses you. If you’ve argued with him and you ignore those calls, be aware that the action does not escape your mans attention. Consider the alternative, he could never call and wait for you to do it. Next time, pick up that phone when it rings, otherwise you will not know how he has thought to express his love and apologies.
He brags about you to his family & friends – Sometimes you may feel he talks ad nauseum about you. However, put yourself in his shoes and see how proud your man is of you and how lucky he feels to be a part of your life. He shows this in the greatest way possible, he tells his family and friends. For a man, including family and friends on the details of his relationship is a very big step for him in that relationship. If he is talking about you, he loves you – guaranteed.
He tries to be nice to your family & friends – Some women may not like the idea of their significant other being friends with their friends. Such issues as friends being caught in the middle during problems may arise. However, just the notion that your man cares to be nice to family and friends and have positive interactions with them shows that he cares about the people that you care for. He wants to please you and make you happy.
He never stops romancing you – No matter how busy your man is, does he set time aside for you? Forget setting time aside, does he actually make time for you? If so, you are looking at a man who loves you. He will stop caring about his own stresses to relieve you of yours. He will send you an email, leave you a sticky note, write you a letter or leave a message on your machine when he knows you are not around to pick up the phone. He spends your time together relaxing you and occasionally giving you a present or a card. That kind of attentiveness cannot be faked. He is in love.
He says so, in so many ways – Every action may show his feelings for you, but no action is more certain than a verbal expression. The tone of his voice and the look in his eyes, the wrap of his arms around your shoulders as he whispers he loves you should leave you with no reservation about how he feels. Some people feel that saying ‘I love you’ too often makes it less special. For a man, saying I love you is the height of his expression of his feelings for you. The more you hear it, let it be known, the more he feels it.
Now, you ask if anything else that will tell you if he loves you. Your answer is–What else do you need? These simple signs are tried and true. His willingness to perform these actions will show you that your man loves you.
