Women love to talk about love, expecting their guy to say “I love you” as often as they do. But they are often disappointed. The average guy would rather roll around in poison ivy than talk about his feelings. Men don’t want to talk about their relationships with anyone, even the women they love. This doesn’t mean he doesn’t love you, deeply and completely. It’s possible he has never said “I love you” to anyone in his entire life. If he loves you, he’ll eventually say the words.
Until then, look at his actions. To a guy, actions are what matter, not words. We did a little research and uncovered seven common behaviors that show he’s in love, even without the words.
1. He’s willing to sacrifice for you.
A man in love wants to do all he can to make his lady happy and is willing to make great sacrifices for her. In a fulfilling and lasting relationship, each gladly sacrifices for the other. When your man does something for you, whether it’s something grand or doing the dishes, he’s telling you he loves you. Sacrificing for the one you love is selfless and takes maturity. It shouldn’t be a one-way street.
2. He’s a good listener.
Women are typically better listeners than men. If your guy really listens to you, he’s a keeper. This is particularly true if he doesn’t give his full attention to many people. This can be demonstrated in countless small ways. If you’ve said you love lilies but aren’t fond of roses and he gives you lilies for Valentine’s Day, he heard what you said. If he remembers you talking about something you’ve always wanted to do and makes it happen, he’s deeply in love.
3. He’s not afraid to show his vulnerability.
Men don’t like to expose their vulnerabilities. Perhaps it’s genetic, but men normally want to appear strong at all times. Perhaps this is why so many guys put off going to the doctor as long as possible and make terrible patients. One of the truest signs of love from a man is when he begins to expose his inner feelings and what he considers weaknesses. This shows that he really trusts you above all others. It can take quite a while before this happens, but letting his guard down is a true sign of love. (Don’t ever betray this trust – it could destroy the relationship.)
