Love is a funny thing. We spend our entire lives seeking it out, and if we are lucky enough, we find our true love.

In relationships, it can be hard to tell if you are with the right one. Even worse, it can be hard to tell in the beginning stages if your partner is truly in love. While men can be hard to read, they do show their emotions through their actions. So, when a man is truly in love, you can spot it through the signs. If you are with someone, and you are wondering if they truly love you, here are 9 behaviors of men who are truly in love.

1. He speaks about plans with you for the future.

If a man is in love, he can see a future with you. He may bring up future plans he has with you, or ask you to be his plus one for future dates. If your man sees a future with you, he sees you as someone he could spend his life with.

2. He has introduced you to all of his people.

Men tend to only introduce women they truly care about to the people they love. So, if he’s pressing for you to meet the family or join him and the guys on their monthly outing, go ahead and count yourself in.

3. He makes plans with you.

When a man is truly in love, he wants to spend time with you. He won’t wait around for you to invite him out. Instead, he will make it a point to ask you out.

4. He is protective over you.

While men don’t tend to get mushy gushy, when they love you, they will show it. One of the ways they will show it is by being protective or territorial over you.

5. He wants to be exclusive.

Men don’t typically jump to commit, so when a man wants to be exclusive, it’s a good sign. It means he wants you, and all of you. He doesn’t want anyone else to have you, because he wants to keep you.

6. He goes out of his way to do nice things for you.

Does your partner offer to help you, even if it’s not optimal for them? If so, this is a sign of love. Yes, most men that are into you will help if you ask, but if he offers to without you asking, then he is truly in love.

7. He remembers the small things.

If you told him your favorite candy and then the next day, he showed up with a package of it, then you are on his mind. This shows he not only listens to you, but also picks up on the small things you wouldn’t expect him to. This is a major sign of true love.

8. He responds to you promptly.

If a guy is always leaving you on read, then he likely isn’t really that into you. However, if he quickly responds, then it’s very likely he has deeper intentions.

9. He accepts you, flaws and all.

Are you able to be yourself, without worrying about your flaws? When a man accepts you for who you are, flaws and all, then he is in love.
