There are many different ways for men and women to express their love and affection, besides the rare ultra-sensitive male. Especially, men and women think differently. So love can be confusing for a woman at times.
A popular, legitimate statement that is heard often from women is “Yesterday, he was the nicest guy in the world, and today he’s a complete jerk. I just don’t understand,”.
Keep in mind, men are only human, so they have a mood swing too. It doesn’t mean they don’t love you. The important part is that what a man says and does should be consistent. Men do exhibit a common set of behaviours that demonstrate their love for a woman.
8 BEHAVIORS MEN SHOW WHEN THEY’RE WITH THEIR TRUE LOVE
1. HE LISTENS TO YOU (CLOSELY!).
According to a study conducted by Cambridge University, women are much better listeners than men. However, men will always intently focus on things of interest. Therefore, if a man actively pays attention and reasonably responds – as known as active listening – you can have confidence that he’s smitten.
2. HE IS WILLING TO MAKE A SACRIFICE.
When you are in love with someone, it is much easier for you to make personal sacrifices for them. For a person they love, men will feel tremendous discomfort at the thought of their woman being unhappy, especially, when there’s something we can do about it.
In other words, one of the signs to know his love for you is his sacrifices for your happiness. You are always his priority. He is willing to change his plan or get out of his comfort zone for you.
3. HE SHOWS VULNERABILITY.
When showing any behaviour, men can be very careful if they think that that behaviour can be perceived as a weakness. However, when they allow you to see their true feelings, and leave this deeply ingrained attitude to the wayside.
Trust is one of the love signs. When a man is in love with you, he will feel comfortable to reveal personal information about themselves to you. He trusts you and believes that you will not judge him by the way he is. He begins to open up and let you in on their innermost feelings.
Throughout a relationship, the vulnerability will surely make several appearances – especially if you reciprocate. It will create a deeper, more meaningful bond.
4. HE LOVES HOW YOU LOOK, EVEN ON YOUR “WORST DAYS”.
Everyone wants to look and feel their best when they face their loves. Men are no exception when he meets up with a potential partner. You can see how much effort he puts into looking his best during those first dates.
When two people spend more time with each other, they will not hesitate to choose comfortable things for them. You each feel free to wander around in pyjamas or comfy clothes. Despite the comfortability, he still thinks you look beautiful. It’s your smile, your laugh and your personality that charms him, not the clothes or makeup you are wearing.
5. HE’S PROUD OF YOU (AND ISN’T AFRAID TO SHOW IT).
A mature man is willing to say how proud he is of you. It is kind of a compliment when you’re a fantastic mother, a hard worker, or reaching your goals. It means that he is always there for you, and your efforts do not go unnoticed. All of the admirable things a woman has done or is working towards brings a man a great amount of pride and joy. Even if you feel down, he is still there to cheer you up.
And… even if you’re both very competitive people, he’ll probably feel a bit less crushed following a swift defeat from his lady.
6. HE FIGHTS FOR YOU.
If a man can do everything to keep you with him, it means he is truly in love with you. To him, you are the right person, only you. He loves everything about you, all your imperfections, or wants to be with you through your darkest times. Whatever you do, he still stays there for you.
He will not hesitate to stand up and fight for you if you have been wronged. Protect you even when the whole world tries to against you.
7. HE FIGHTS WITH YOU (YEP, YOU READ THAT RIGHT!).
It seems paradoxical to say he will fight for you and fight with you. But we are not talking about physical arguments or fights of the insult. “Fight” is to avoid losing you. If a man loves you and emotionally invests in his relationship, he will initiate a “fight”, an argument rather, to avoid losing you; even if that means fighting with the woman he loves. If a guy is fighting with this purpose in mind, he wants to make things work. In other words, he commits to your relationship.
8. HE TREATS YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS WITH RESPECT.
Respect is another important value in a mature relationship. A man who loves you will respect all your relationships such as your friends and family. He knows who important to you is, then they become important to him. He may not like every single one of your family members or your catty friends, but he’ll zip it because he knows how much they mean to you. As Emily Dickenson said, “Behavior is what a man does, not what he thinks, feels, or believes.”
