Do you feel like your love is one-sided? Does it feel like sometimes he is involved and other times, he is not? Or does he tell you he loves you but doesn't sound convincing enough? Well, with love, it is most beautiful when you give and take.
True love is complete. Like Tango, you both should be fully involved, exchanging affection. When love is not reciprocated, it can't be sustained. So, if you feel like the person you love so much doesn't feel the same way about you and that there is little to no chance of that ever-changing, it will be wise to withdraw your emotional investment.
Expectation postponed, they say, makes the heart sick. If you keep expecting what is most likely impossible, you will be doing yourself more harm than good. Protecting your heart is important. Some people have been so damaged by unrequited love that they have lost themselves to it. Save yourself that heartache by walking away from that situation before you get deeper into it.
Love is risky but there should be some potential. If you feel like it has a good chance of working out, then, by all means, do not pass it on. However, if his words do not give you the certainty you seek, some signs will help you gauge your romantic prospects. There is also the possibility that he loves you but has not realized it yet.
These 9 obvious signs that he loves you below will help you know where he stands and where you should stand.
He Inconveniences Himself For Your Happiness
He puts you before himself and does not mind going the extra mile to make you happy. Your comfort and happiness are his priority. Even when it is difficult for him, he doesn't just try to be there. He is there.
Putting a smile on your face feels like his greatest achievement. He doesn't want to see you cry or be the cause. Now, that is a man who loves you.
You Are His Priority
He puts you first before other people and things. He is never too busy for you, your calls, or texts. Of course, his entire life does not revolve around you, but he thinks first, "How will this affect her? How will she feel about it?"
He prioritizes your relationship and even puts you before his friends. This shows how much he values your relationship and that he doesn't take it and you for granted.
Your Advice Is Gold To Him
He is the kind of guy who goes, "Let me ask her first." He values your input. Your thoughts and opinions on things are invaluable to him. He trusts your sense of judgment and always comes to you before he goes to anyone else.
His Future Plans Include You
He might not be the type to affirm his love with the words you want to hear. But, when he talks about his future, and he includes you in it, what you have is not a fling. For example, you love to write, and you have told him at a prior time the kind of view that helps you concentrate best when writing.
Then, one day, he is talking about buying an apartment or a house, and he goes, "I'll make sure there is a room with that forest view you love so much so you can concentrate when working." That tells you you have something real there.
He Pays Attention When You Talk
Not only can you tell him anything, he really listens when you talk. He is always there whenever you want to rant or talk about your frustrations.
Whenever you need or want to talk, he leaves whatever he is doing and offers himself to you like you own him and are the most important person in the world at that moment.
He Honestly And Freely Compliments You
He wears his heart on his sleeve for you, always complimenting you and wanting to make you feel the best about yourself.
He compliments you about seemingly small things that very few people notice, showing that he is paying attention to you. For example, when you make adjustments to your personality to improve yourself, he notices before anyone else and showers you with praise.
He Talks To His Friends And Family About You
Imagine been invited to a family function at his house, and his mom or sisters go, "So you are the Wendy. Trent can't stop talking about you", with huge smiles on their faces. Or you meet his friends, and they are polite towards you and start sharing inside jokes about him with you.
That shows that you are always on his mind, so much that he talks about you often to the people closest to him.
He Takes The Initiative
When he takes the initiative in your relationship to let you know how he feels without any prompt or nudge from you, he is most likely as invested as you are.
Not only does he express how he feels, but he also does his best to show you his actions. There will be no need to ask the "what are we" question.
He Always Has Your Best Interests At Heart
He is the kind of man you can count on because he genuinely looks out for you. Your needs are met without you having to ask. He takes note of the things you need and provides them even before you remember you need them.
A man who goes out of his way to do things for you, trusts you, and makes you the first point of contact for all his joys and sorrows, and is not your brother or relative, is most likely in love with you. Whether he expresses it in words or not, these 9 obvious signs are evidence that he truly loves you.
