Men and women show that they care in very different ways. If a man is willing to publicly display his love for a woman, he is not messing around. It takes extreme vulnerability for a man to show and express exactly what he is feeling on such a large scale.
There are at least 8 things a man will only do for the woman he sincerely loves.
1. He Protects Her
A man places himself between danger and that which he loves. He shields his woman not just from physical harm, but also emotional traumas. Always vigilant and always on guard, he is ready at a moment’s notice to place himself in harm’s way. He does not raise his hands against those he loves. It would never cross his mind.
2. He Tries To Be A Better Person
Love can make even the sloppiest of guys attempt to get their act together. It’s not even so much that he wants to flatter his partner with a false impression. He just holds them in such high regard that he won’t subject them to anything but his best possible self.
In other words, when a man is in love he genuinely wants to become a better person. He knows his partner deserves that much.
3. He remembers things big and small.
He'll make you cry tears of happiness because he plans a huge birthday surprise, of course, but he'll also remember your favorite wine in case of emergencies (like when you've had a tough day at work or your entire family is driving you mad).
4. He’s Honest
There’s no shortage of men out there who can put on a really convincing mask. They’ll say all the right things to make themselves appear like the ‘perfect man.’
But when a man truly loves a woman, that’s not even an option. He’s not going to just ‘play along’ on dates with the intention of getting in her pants. He’ll stand by his values, even if she tugs him in the opposite direction.
5. He will help you
Offer to help you with something just to spend more time with you.
6. He surprises you with gifts
Surprise you with something little to show how much he thinks about you.
7. He' ll say I love you...and actually mean it
Anyone can say “I love you,” but actually meaning it is a whole other ball game. The hard part is discerning when a man is being genuine and not just running game. If the L-word gets uttered during the throes of passion, then it should be taken with a grain of salt, as good sex will make people say and do almost anything. The true test of a man’s feelings comes from his actions.
Not everyone is honorable. There are individuals that will claim they love you until they’re blue in the face, yet these are the ones who are continually cheating and lying. As I’ve said before, words have no real value without meaning.
Man in love with a woman will not only say it but he will show it. He’ll call you when he misses you. He’ll listen to you when you’re talking. He’ll make sacrifices to make you happy. He’ll be emotionally available and willing to express himself with you. He’ll mean what he says and do whatever it takes to make you feel like the most important woman in the world.
8. He ll fight for the woman he loves
No guy is fighting for a hookup. He’ll know when a sexual fling is temporary, and no one — guy or girl — is going to fight for something temporary. If a guy loves you, he will fight for you. He will stick up for you to his friends, to YOUR friends, to his family and to YOUR family; he won’t let anyone cut you down because he physically and emotionally can’t. It will be like a reflex to him, and he won’t even think twice about going to bat for you. A man who truly loves you won’t only fight on your behalf — he’ll fight FOR you and fight to keep you.
