Relationships are a roller coaster, full of incredible highs and gut-wrenching lows. You’ve worked your way through the wild and crazy world of dating and found someone that makes you happy. In the beginning, it was magical and romantic, something straight out of a fairy tale. Known as the ‘honeymoon phase,’ it is during this time that we are often blind to any possible struggles or difficulties, seeing only the positives in your relationship.
Eventually, however, the honeymoon phase will pass, and you will be faced with the reality of your relationship. It is at this stage that we step back and reassess, deciding whether this has long-term potential, or if we need to keep searching for that ‘special someone.’ If you know that you’re feeling it, but you question where his feelings lie, this can be a frightening time. There are, however, a number of signs that will reveal that he’s head over heels for you if you know what to watch for!
Watch for These 12 Things That Guys Only Do with The Women They Are Crazy For:
#1 – He Will Make Sacrifices for You
Your happiness is incredibly important to him, and he will make sacrifices in his own life if he knows that he can bring a smile to your face. There is a sign that you are a priority, and he will dedicate his life to bringing you joy.
#2 – He is Willing to Be Vulnerable
Society has created this image that men need to be strong and unbreakable, the protectors of their relationship. However, as we all know, men also have emotions and struggles. If he cares for you, he will drop the mask and reveal his vulnerable side. This shows just how much he trusts you.
#3 – He is Proud of Your Achievements
When you succeed in life he isn’t jealous, nor does he try to ‘out due’ you. He is truly proud of you for all that you have accomplished, sharing just how proud he is with the people in your lives. He is your greatest cheerleader.
#4 – He Pays Attention to the Little Things That Make You Smile
He will come home with the little gifts and tokens of affection that he knows speak to you, paying attention to what makes you smile and brings you joy. Are you a flowers and chocolates girl? Is your favorite coffee shop the key to your heart? Whatever it is, if he genuinely cares he will take note.
#5 – He Actually Listens When You Speak
He not only listens to the words that you speak, which is impressive compared to many of the men out there. He actually listens to the meaning behind your words, understanding what you are actually trying to say, and caring what you have to share.
#6 – He Introduces You to Friends and Family
This is a huge sign that so many women overlook. Has he introduced you to the important people in his life including his family members or his guy friends, or does he keep you hidden away? If he is willing to take the step to bring you into his social circle, then he sees this as long-term.
#7 – He Always Sees the Beauty in You
Alright, ladies, let’s be honest. We all have those days that we are far from the ‘beauty’ that society would lead us to believe that we need to be. It could be that you are dealing with a high level of stress, or maybe you are currently ill. It doesn’t matter to him, he sees your beauty regardless.
#8 – He Says Those 3 Little Words
This may seem obvious but pay attention. When a man isn’t feeling it, he will say things that may be similar to the phrase but will ultimately avoid ‘I love you’ at all costs. If a man is willing to put himself out there, putting aside the fear of rejection to share this feeling with you, that is a big step.
#9 – He Fights with You Respectfully
Fighting with your partner occasionally isn’t actually a bad thing. In fact, if you never fight, take that as a warning sign. The difference between positive and negative arguments in a relationship lies in whether or not you can continue to respect one another while you disagree.
#10 – He Fights for You
If you are going through a difficult moment in your relationship, pay attention to how he responds. If he is willing to let you walk away, then he’s not worth your time. If, however, he is willing to fight for your love, then he sees a future with you.
#11 – He Keeps You Happy Physically
Alright, physical love isn’t everything in a relationship, but it’s definitely worth discussion! He may not be the most skilled lover that you have had, but he pays attention to what makes you happy and will go out of his way to focus on that. Your pleasure is incredibly important to him.
#12 – He Cares About Your Family and Friends
He acknowledges the people that are important to you in your life, and recognizing this importance, he also sees them as a priority. He will go out of his way to offer them support, encourage them and listen as you talk about their problems and accomplishments in life. He may not ‘click’ with them directly as lifelong friends, but they are important to you, which makes them important to him.
