We all love to be told that we are loved, but sometimes people’s actions don’t match up to the things they’re saying. If your partner is bad at saying he loves you but good at showing it in other ways, perhaps you shouldn’t be cutting him so short.
Below, I am going to go over some ways that men sometimes show their love without flat out saying ‘I love you.’ These are things we should all be taking to heart and letting sink in properly. Of course, he should be working on saying it more, but we should also be looking to his actions for the truth that we’re seeking.
12 Things That Show He Loves You:
1. He doesn’t ignore you.
When someone loves you, they don’t ignore you. People who ignore you are people who don’t care about your emotional well-being. The silent treatment is not okay, and we should all be aware not to tolerate it.
2. He is committed to you.
When someone loves you, they commit to you. If he doesn’t love you, he will still stray, all the while pretending to have eyes only for you. We’re all human, and we all make mistakes, but this is one thing that we should not be overlooking.
3. He always makes time to be intimate with you.
If he loves you, he will make time for you. He will take time out of his day to sit with you and cuddle or just catch up. Sure, it might not always be physical intimacy, but it will always be intimacy on some level.
4. He doesn’t make you feel unimportant.
Those who love us will not make us feel as though we do not matter. If you seem to be suffering or something is bothering you, he will come to you and try to talk things out. You will always know that you matter when you’re with someone who truly cares about you.
5. You can trust him.
When someone loves you they make sure that you know that you can trust them. They give you what you need in this sense and are not going to lie to you about anything. Sure, sometimes the things they say might not always be what you want to hear, but you know you’re getting the truth.
6. He is always there to help.
He won’t be the kind of person who jumps ship when you need him if he really loves you. When you’re with someone who loves you, they won’t want to see you struggle. They will be there for you to talk or to figure out a means of getting through the rough patches if needed.
7. He takes your needs and wants into consideration.
When you’re with a man who truly loves you, he won’t let your needs or wants fall through the cracks. He will do all he can to make sure you’re cared for properly. While everyone in the relationship needs to be taken care of, he puts a lot of focus on you, and you put a lot of focus on him.
8. He opens up to you about things.
People who truly love us are people who can open up to us, and who we can also ourselves open up to. Communication is important when it comes to love, and that’s a big thing a lot of people seem to forget. If he loves you, sitting down and talking through your issues shouldn’t be too complicated.
9. He respects you and your boundaries.
If he loves you he will respect you and your boundaries. He won’t push you into things you don’t want to do, period. He will be aware of where the line is and how to not cross it.
10. He tries not to upset you within reason.
Someone who loves you will not go out of their way to make you feel bad. If he really cares, he will make an effort to keep you happy. While sometimes he will need to upset you, he wouldn’t ever tear you down or step on your toes on purpose.
11. He is willing to stand up for you.
When someone says something about you, he comes to your defense. He stands up for you when you’re not around because he knows the truth behind you and all you do. You know he is going to say something when someone is bad-mouthing you, and that’s always a good feeling.
12. He is there when you need him.
When you need him the most, he is there. He doesn’t just leave when things get hard. He is always by your side through the worst things this world has to throw your way.
