Keeps watch and protective
He definitely doesn't cling to you, but he makes an effort on keeping watch and checking that you're alright. If you’re taking a trip by yourself or even if you’re just going out with friends, does he like receiving your call after you get to your destination? If your man can relax only after knowing that you’re safe, no matter where you are, he definitely has a special spot for you in his heart.
Selfless without reminding you
It's nice when your other half does something nice without thought, and it's even nicer when he doesn't feel the need to constantly remind you of that nice thing he did seven months ago. When he's not bragging about the things he does for you, he's doing it selflessly.
He listens and remembers
Whether you're talking about the things you love, something that happened to you in the day, or talking about trivial things, when he listens and remembers the things you say, even the trivial stuff, he's taking you seriously.
He treats you like a lady
When a guy is being chivalrous, he's showing that he cares what you think about his behaviour. He wants to impress you and leave you feeling special and cherished, whether that's opening the door for you or giving you more than your fair share of bed space and quilt.
You’re a part of his plan for life
When he talks about his plans for the future, and you're apart of them, you're definitely always going to have a place in his heart.
He cares about your opinion
He listens to what you have to say about the big things in his life, and he discusses any important decisions that impact his life and could impact yours by extension.
He makes sacrifices
He sacrifices his happiness to see you happy. It could be something as small as choosing a restaurant for dinner or giving you the fluffier pillow or something way bigger that can impact his life.
He makes an effort to be friends with your friends
There’s nothing quite better when your friends get along with your other half, and seeing that they’re both putting in the effort to make your life better is only going to give you that warm fuzzy feeling inside.
He listens when you’re venting
We all do it, and having someone is listening to it, even when they don’t really want to, can make a whole load of difference. Knowing that he’s there for you and listening is one big sign of a real keeper.
He doesn’t push you away after a fight
There’s nothing quite as isolating as having a fight with your other half and them not wanting to speak to you for the rest of the day/week. Sometimes it can be hard to suck up pride when you know you’re not in the wrong, but if they’re willing to make things better then you definitely don’t want to let him go.
He wants you to enjoy your time together
If he spends time asking you what you like to do and finding something that you both like to do together, then he definitely wants you to know how much he cares.
He takes care of you
When a man loves you, he may not always enunciate it like the letters of the alphabet, but he shall, however, do little things that restore your belief in the emotion. He would do the dishes on the days you’re too tired or cook you dinner on a night before your big presentation because he knows you’d be busy and he cares.
He wants to impress you
If he spends time and effort trying to impress you then you must know that he loves you, it's because your opinion matters the most to him and he wants it to be a good one.
He notices everything about you
Whether it is a new haircut or an expression of distress, he is especially perceptive with matters pertaining to you. He notices your restrained smile when you’re upset but don’t wish to let on, and your engaging one when you’re being friendly, or the naughty one when you’re hiding something mischievous that you did.
Takes an interest in you
If your man loves you, he’d always be eager to know everything about your day, even the small insignificant details.
On your side, always
No matter what he really thinks, in public, he will always be on your side, no matter what.
He remembers the important dates
Whether it's the day you first met, your first date, or even those big days in work, he lets you know that he remembers in a way that's special to you.
Knowing the small ways that people show love can make all the difference when you haven’t heard it in a while.
