It is universally believed that men practice the philosophy of ‘show don’t tell’. Especially when it comes to saying I love you.
While women tend to be more vocal about their feelings towards their partner, men believe in the subtler gestures. In today’s day and age, men are open to expressing themselves, but extracting a simple I love you from them is not exactly a cakewalk. This is because men show their love in various other ways.
Whether deliberately or subconsciously, men believe in demonstrating their love and there are a few things that most guys in love do to prove it to you. Here are some of the ways men show you how much they’re in love with you without really saying the words.
1. He makes sacrifices for you
When a man is truly in love with you, your happiness is his priority. No matter how inconvenient it may be for him, or how much trouble he has to go through, he’ll do it if that what it takes to bring a smile on your face.
2. He listens
He doesn’t just hear what you have to say. He truly listens and empathizes, and sometimes even comes up with a solution to your problems.
3. He doesn’t judge you in your bad days
If he truly loves you, it won’t matter whether you’re in a stunning gown or clown pants. You’ll be beautiful to him no matter what. When you’re with him a bad hair day doesn’t even bother you as much.
4. He shows you his vulnerable side
He’s secure enough to not keep up appearances and maintain his machismo when you’re around. He’s comfortable enough to let his guard down, get emotional, and even cry around you without feeling emasculated.
5. He stands up for you
If you’re being singled out or feeling threatened, he comes to your rescue. He protects you from harm and stands by you like a rock.
6. He’s proud of you
When he truly loves you, you are one of his most prized possessions. He shows you off in front of his friends and takes pride in being called your SO. Isn’t he a gem?
7. Your friends and family are his friends and family
He almost considers your family as his own and treats them with utmost respect. He even makes extra efforts to get along with your friends because they’re important in your life.
If he’s some or all of the above and more, he’s definitely a keeper! Cherish the various ways he shows his love for you.
