Anyone can say, "I love you," and it doesn't necessarily mean they mean it. If your man says, "I love you," you want to know why. Is it because he's trying to get into your pants? Does he feel like he's obligated to say it? Or does he actually love you? Well, actions speak louder than words. You can tell if your man loves you by what he does, not by by what he says. So if you're trying to figure out if your dude likes you or not, listen up!
If he cares about you, he'll care about what you're saying. If your man hangs on all the words coming out of your mouth, he's into you. It's the equivalent of gazing longingly into your face, but you know, with mouth words. He wouldn't be paying such rapt attention if he didn't find you interesting!
If your man lights up every time you enter the room as if someone shone a fresnel in his face, he l-o-v-e-s you. You're his sunshine, and without you he would surely wilt and die. Do his eyes perk up? Does a smile stretch across his face? That's pretty much the same thing as shouting, "I LOVE YOU!" on a rooftop.
He wouldn't want to meet your family if he didn't want to become part of it one day. Maybe not today, but you know, eventually. It's all part of that long game. He's trying to get in good with your mom and dad, which means he's trying to get in great with you.
Does your man always ask you if his shirt and tie match, even though he knows you're not a professional stylist? He's so in love with you it should be illegal. He's dependent on you. He needs you in your life to make choices for him and with him. You've got him hooked like a fisherman hooked a bass.
Anyone can have a candlelit dinner and long walk on the beach with anyone and it doesn't mean anything. But going grocery shopping together? That's a big deal. That's really romantic. You don't do the everyday things with someone you don't care about.
The way to a man's heart is through his stomach. And once you've earned his heart by feeding him, he'll return the favor. If he cooks for you, it means you've lit his flame. He wants to heat it up in more than just the kitchen.
Your man doesn't need to say those three little words to let you know he loves you. He just needs to say two letters - "we." It's a sign he's thinking of you two as one. There's no "I" in "you and me," but there is a "we" if you turn the "m" upside down, right? Right??
You know we all have a busy schedule, and you probably know that your man does too. But we're only busy with the things we care about. So if he's busy, he wants to get busy with you. In more ways than one, if you know what we mean. Wink, wink.
It's easy to love someone in fair weather, but it's when the going gets tough that your feelings really get tested. If he balks at the first sign of trouble, he's probably in infatuation, not in love. But if he sails his ship through troubled waters, it means he wants to dock at your port for good.
You shouldn't give your man little tests to see if he's been paying attention. But that said, if he could pass a pop quiz on what you said you wanted for your birthday three months ago, he's got it bad. The devil is in the details, and so is his love.
A man who plans is a man who's in love. If he schedules a trip to museum with you - or better yet - international travel, he's interested in making other plans with you. What other plans are we talking about? Wedding plans. That's what.
