As they say, actions do speak louder than words.
A lot of girls are prone to being very insecure about how they think guys see them. There are just too many untrustworthy guys out there who are so willing to prey on the insecurities of women. And for that reason exactly, a lot of girls end up developing trust issues with men. It doesn’t help that boys typically tend to be less expressive about their feelings and thoughts with women. And so a lot of women who are in relationships with men will find it really hard having to read the minds of their male counterparts accurately.
But what most girls don’t realize is that men are very expressive about how they feel – it’s just that they don’t typically use words to express themselves. Men are more of physical communicators than they are verbal ones. And for that reason, it’s more important to read into what he’s doing as opposed to what he’s saying. If you learn to pay attention to how he treats you, then you are really going to be able to tell just how much he values you in his life. Here are some non-verbal signs that your guy is definitely in love with you.
1. He always makes you feel like he prioritizes you.
A lot of what makes up life is the balancing of priorities. Various aspects of life are going to demand your attention and your energy. And you must know how you’re going to be able to divide your focus accordingly. So if he actually takes the time to be with you and work on his relationship with you, then that’s his way of telling you that he cares about you and that he loves you.
2. He willingly inconveniences himself for your own convenience.
We all have naturally elfish tendencies. As human beings, we are always going to want to conduct ourselves in ways that are beneficial to us. We always want to be acting out of convenience. But we are also always willing to inconvenience ourselves for the things and people that are most important to us. And that’s what he does for you.
3. He incorporates you into his social circle.
You know that he really loves you if he incorporates you into his social circle. He isn’t treating you like some temporary part of his life. He knows that you’re for real – and he wants the other people in his life to get used to the fact that you’re always going to be there. You are a permanent fixture in his life.
4. He likes to spend a lot of his time with you.
We only ever really spend time on the things that we love; the things that are most important to us. And so if he’s spending a lot of his time with you, then that’s definitely a good thing.
5. He doesn’t shy away from being touchy with you.
Physical closeness and intimacy is also a great expression of affection and love for another person. You always need to be able to find happiness in the fact that you have a guy who wants you to feel his love through the form of the physical touch.
6. He treats you like a real equal.
He doesn’t see himself as someone who is above you – he doesn’t demean or belittle you in any way. But he also doesn’t place you on a pedestal. He doesn’t idealize you. He doesn’t romanticize you. He doesn’t hype you up. He sees you for who you really are – and he loves all of it.
7. He takes a keen interest in the things that you are most passionate about.
He understands that you are a human being who is made up of so many different passions, interests, experiences, and stories. And he wants to immerse himself in everything. He wants to be an important aspect of your life as well. He really wants to integrate himself into who you are as a person.
8. He gives you space whenever you ask for it.
Just because he’s in a relationship with you doesn’t automatically mean that he thinks he is entitled to violating your boundaries. He still respects that you are an individual; and he would never want to make you feel uncomfortable by overstepping his boundaries.
9. He never flirts with other girls.
He’s really committed to you. He would never want to do anything to make you feel like he isn’t being serious with you. He’s always going to do his best to ensure that you are safe and secure with your place in his life. He is never going to want to make you feel like you are just a mere option to him. He will want to make you feel like you are his one and only.
10. He is consistent with his efforts for you.
He doesn’t play hot and cold games with you. He’s really with you – every single day. He isn’t going to be inconsistent with his efforts at all. He’s someone you can always rely on to be there for you at all times.
