He loves me, he loves me not…it takes more than flower petal picking to know whether your man really digs you or not. But rest assured if your man is really head over heels, there 8 things that you can pretty much bet on him doing consistently.
He Listens Carefully
They say attention and showing up in the moment is the highest form of respect you can pay towards someone. So it makes sense that if your man really loves you he will be attending to what you’re saying and seeking to understand what you are trying to get across in conversation.
If your man regularly asks you about your life, your opinions and thoughts you can pretty much rest assured that he highly values your input and influence in his life. That’s a keeper, girl!
He Fights With You
You are human beings. There will be times where you will disagree as a couple. What it comes down to is when your man cares enough to not shut down but to actively work through the frustration to find a resolution than you know he is in it for real.
If your man shuts down and begins to find anything and everything to pay attention to but you when there is discomfort in the air than chances are he doesn’t prioritize you enough on the list to step out of his comfort zone in order to resolve things. Look for a man who will actively work through an argument to constructively bring it to an end.
He makes Sacrifices for Your Happiness
When you are committed to another, the rubber meets the road when you find a healthy balance of compromise. After all, you only have so much time in the day. If your man takes his time and energy to be with you when he has other things he could be doing, know that is a tell-tale sign he pretty much loves ya.
He Fights For Your Love
He realizes that there will be winters as well as summers in your relationship and weathers through it all. He determines to find a way to be there for you with support and love whether the sun’s out or the rain has come to stay for a bit.
He feels fortunate to have you in his life and so will do everything to keep that a priority. When it becomes not so easy, he finds ways to meet you half-way and to molds to the change.
He’s Proud of Your Achievements
He takes time to acknowledge the important moments in your life. If he shows up for those special events you can pretty much be guaranteed he loves ya and wants to show you his support for your hard work.
He Thinks You Look Beautiful Even On Your Worst Days
He has that way of reassuring you that his love is just as strong even when you have a kleenex stuck to your nose and the frumpiest of pajamas on. He loves you for who you are in pajamas or ball gown.
He Cares About Your Family and Friends Because You Do
He listens in on the nitty-gritty details of your friends’ lives. When your friends are around, he actively strikes up conversation and seems genuinely interested in connecting with the people who matter to you. When you are concerned for a friend, he is right there with you.
He’s Not Afraid To Be Vulnerable
When things get a bit uncomfortable he’s not afraid to jump the waters to confront a situation and to face things head on. He will work through difficulties with you and step out of his comfort zone.
All this to say, we are all human. We are all prone to err and just because your man does not have his a-game on all the time does not mean his love for you isn’t strong.
After all, we want our men to be accepting of us in all our different shades and moods, right? So we can have the same understanding as well with our significant others and we think that creates a healthy balance.
