7 Behavioral Signs That He Is Really In Love With You

Most of us have been in love. And what a wonderful feeling it is. But what if you do not really know for sure if someone loves you back? The thing is, when somebody is really in love with you, there are subtle signs and ways to know. Even if they have not said it yet, these little behavioral signs give it away! Here are seven signs that he really does love you.

If he is really in love with you, you are his priority

If he puts your needs and wants before his own, this is a tell-tale sign that he does really love you. Making sure your needs are met above all others is not something people do just because. If you notice that he often puts you first, you know that you mean more to him than he can express with words.[1]

He wants to be part of your life

He wants to meet your family, friends, and even wants to spend time with them and make a good impression. Not to mention that when he asks about your day at work or how your evening with the girls went, he actually listens! What is more is that he wants you to be part of his life in the same way, too. This shows he is really in love with you.[2]

If he is really in love with you, he will show commitment

If you really are unsure whether he loves you are not, look at how he handles situations. Does he flake, or does he always pull through for you? If it is the latter, then you can, without a doubt, know how he really feels inside.[2]

He is protective of you

Do not get this one confused with men who are possessive. When a man is protective over you, it means he cares about your well-being and your mental state. He wants you to be okay and happy. He wants to make sure you are surrounded by positivity and good people. This is a real sign that he really is in love with you![1]

If he is really in love with you, he will notice the little things

Slightly trimmed your hair? In a bad mood but have not actually said so? He’s noticed? Well, people pay attention to those they are really in love with, and when he is really in love with you, he will pick up on the things that seem small, and it will make you feel loved. He will also notice the little things you do for him and give back in return![2]

He plans things

When he talks about the future, you are included. Travel plans? Thoughts on buying a house? Anything he speaks about in future tense indicates that you will be there too. This means he sees his future with you in it![1]

If he really loves you, he will want to be close to you

Being close to you physically is a sure way to know he loves you. And by that, we mean holding your hand, snuggling up with you on the sofa, or putting his hand on your leg while driving to the store. All these little displays of affection are indications that he is really in love with you.[1]
