Love is complicated, and everyone shows love in different ways. But, one thing is for sure: if your significant other is putting in effort, this is a good sign. Effort is necessary to give love, to become a better person, and to have a successful relationship.
Ultimately, effort is also a sign of emotional maturity. So the signs below may indicate not just love but an ability and a willingness to build a successful relationship. If a man isn’t ready to do these things for you, it proves that he doesn’t love you truly
Here are 5 things a man would do if he truly loves you. So, ladies, if your man isn’t ready to do these things for you, it proves that he may not love you truly
Players often fail at this. They listen up to a point just to get the sex going since that’s all they’re after anyway.
If he likes you, he’ll listen, and even prod you to hear the contents of your mind. He pays keen attention to you and remembers details of conversations had.
Maybe not all though, but hey, he remembers a lot.
2. He shows you genuine respect.
Respect and love go hand in hand. On its own, respect may not be a clear-cut sign of romantic love, but it should always be present in a loving relationship.
If your partner demonstrates respect for you: your choices, your time, your body, your thoughts, this may be a sign that he values you as more than just a friend.
A man can show respect in a variety of ways. For example, one of the ways I feel most respected is when I am listened to. When my partner listens to the things I have to say, is willing to be attentive to my problems or even just my general musings, this makes me feel extremely respected. It makes me feel like I am important to him and that there is value in my thoughts and feelings.
3. He puts you first.
One of the signs a man loves you is when he frequently puts you first. In fact, this may be one of the deepest signs he really loves you. It is truly an act of love and unselfishness to put the needs and happiness of another person first. This is something we should be doing in our relationships all the time, and truth be told, it can be very difficult.
If your significant other does this for you, whether it be taking care of you when you’re sick, going above and beyond to help you out in some way, or setting aside his own needs to do something for you, this is a strong sign that love is present.
4. Takes your advice
Certain men will go out of their way to avoid your advice, especially if you’re always volunteering information and telling him why he’s mistaken. Many guys tend to resent a woman telling them what to do.
If he sets his ego aside every time you offer advice, and even puts decisions on hold to hear your opinion every time, it could be that he really likes you.
5. Doesn’t hit and run
Yeah, he’ll want to have sex with you at some point [pre or post wedding] but it’s not just about the sex. So he won’t ghost on you after getting it. He wants to be committed to you.
6. Those inconveniences say something
If he’s enduring inconveniences, making sacrifices, shifting his ground to accommodate you and conceding compromises, it could be yet another sign that he likes you and wants something more than hanging out, chilling and catching temporary thrills.
7. Spends time with you
Not in the sense of being with you for 24 hours or wanting to be near you all the time but if he likes you, spending time with you will be one of the things he looks forward to all the time.
