Love is perhaps the one constant that we all experience, search for, and desire in our lifetime. And while that journey can sometimes be difficult, it is also difficult to know 100% when someone loves you, especially a man.

Men often show love differently than women, which isn’t to say that they feel it or experience its difficulty, they just have a different way of showing emotion. And because we want so badly for love to be real, we may miss the signs or see signs that aren’t there. But, if you pay attention closely, a man will most definitely show you he cares.

1. He shows you respect.

When a man is in love, he is respectful to the woman he cares about. He won’t belittle you, or talk down to you, or do anything intentionally that is disrespectful to you.

2. He is patient with you.

And while we all have misunderstandings and have moments in which we don’t exactly see eye to eye, when this happens, he doesn’t try to push you or run over your boundaries. He is patient and compassionate.

3. He includes you in his social life.

While all relationships demand space, he makes it a point to include you in many of his social activities. And he makes it a point to introduce you to his friends and family.

4. He is affectionate.

When I say affection, I don’t just mean intimate or lusty affection, I mean true affection. He hugs you, holds your hand, and cuddles you, without the constant intention of it leading anywhere. He does it just because he cares and for no other ulterior motive.

5. He says “I love you.”

He says “I love you,” and you can tell when he says it he means it, and that he isn’t just saying it to say it.

6. He gives you forehead kisses.

Forehead kisses are perhaps one of the most intimate and affectionate kisses, and if he kisses your forehead, he cares about you. He isn’t just looking for a fling or someone to dispose of, his kiss means something.

7. He initiates contact regularly.

You don’t have to initiate contact every time, he does it on his own. He makes it a point to check on you, to keep you updated, and to let you know what he thinks about the connection and of you.

8. He gives you a smirk that says it all.

He gives you a look that shows his feelings far better than words ever could. When he smirks at you, you can feel it in your bones that he cares.

9. You can just feel it.

And when you are together, you can sense and feel that he cares. To the very core of your being, without words or anything else, you just know.

10. You can be yourself around him.

He not only accepts your quirks, but he also cherishes them. He loves all the little things that make you, you.

11. He shows a genuine interest.

When the two of you are talking, he asks you about yourself and shows a genuine interest. He truly cares about you and the things you care about and goes above and beyond to make that abundantly clear.

12. He doesn’t try to make you jealous.

When you are out in public, he doesn’t stare down other women or talk about them either. He doesn’t try to make you feel jealous or in competition with other women.

13. He notices the little things that make you happy.

Without you even making it a point to tell him, he knows what you like and what makes you happy. And he goes out of his way to notice.

14. He’s dependable.

If you call him, unless he’s busy, he answers. He is there when he says he is going to be and he doesn’t constantly blow you off, or ignore you.
