The Top 13 Ways to Tell Your Boyfriend is In Love With You

Updated on June 27, 2016

Signs He Loves You

Since men are so good at hiding the way they feel, a woman often wonders how she can tell whether a man is in love with her. One of the greatest feelings a woman can ever have is a man's true love, but navigating the vague, frightening, thrilling waters of a new relationship is beautiful, raw, exciting and terrifying. As enamored as you are by your newfound love, you're also hungry for a commitment, for the verbal affirmation that the heart you're increasingly laying on the line is going to be safe. Men aren't always best at showing how they feel, even when they're crazy about you so don’t assume that your boyfriend is not in love with you because he has not verbally expressed his feelings. For the most part, women are quicker at expressing their emotions to their partners; meanwhile, men take a longer time. But take a close look at his gestures, his mannerisms and how he looks at you. Though your boyfriend may take time telling you he is in love with you, chances are he already has through his actions. Want to know if he's crazy about you? Here are the top ways that men show their love.

Shows interest

When your boyfriend starts to ask you in-depth questions about your likes, dislikes and future goals, he is in to you. He wants to learn everything about you. He sincerely cares.

He Compromises

It's simple: when he loves you, he wants to keep you happy. This doesn't mean always letting you get your way, but it does mean he'll be eager to reach a middle ground with you where you're both happy. Whether it's where you spend the holidays or who gets the remote, he'll show his love by insisting that you call the shots sometimes.

Delicate touches

Physical touch is also a powerful vehicle for communicating love. Holding hands, kissing, embracing, and sexual intercourse are all ways of communicating emotional love to a partner. So if he grabs your hand gently during a walk in the park or at a family gathering, take it as a compliment that he is proud to call you his and to show you off. Sometimes there's no better way to show his appreciation than to caresses your hair softly. He hugs you for no reason at all. He affectionately touches your face as he stares at you. Sometimes that he just sit at home watching a movie and cuddling on the couch speaks volumes.

He Does the Dirty Work

He seeks to please you by serving you, to express his love for you by doing things for you. Taking out the garbage, painting a bedroom, raking leaves, mowing the grass and scrubbing the bathroom floor may not seem romantic, but it can be his way of showing you he cares: by helping you out and trying to make your life easier. These activities require thought, planning, time, effort, and energy. If done with a positive spirit, they are indeed expressions of love.

Spending Quality Time Together

Gary Graham wrote, “By quality time, I mean giving someone your undivided attention. I don’t mean sitting on the couch watching television together.” When you find your boyfriend spending less time with his friends and more time with you, he is in love. He has reduced time with his friends to make you happier.

He Asks for Your Help

Whether he wants your input on a official or asks you to tag along and help him pick out a birthday present for his mom, he's asking for your opinion because he respects you and cares what you think, a sure sign he cares for your views. Seeking your help is a tremendous responsibility. It means he believes that you are honest, sincere, reliable, responsive and open. These are the qualities that meant have made him love you, so you have to live up to expectation. The important thing is being there.

Does anything for you

He doesn't care what it takes, but he will make anything possible for you. So you should know he in love with you by the way he paid close attention to all your needs. Moreover, you didn't have to ask him to do something for you. He just knew. He may not necessarily be interested in the things you are interested in, but he makes the effort to take part. He doesn't mock what brings you joy. When he knows you love a particular musician, he surprises you with two concert tickets - one for you and one for him even when he does like him much. He genuinely cared to hear about your good days and your bad days.

He Chooses the Perfect Gift

Gifts are visual symbols of love. If he always come around with the things you like as gifts, take it as a compliment: he's not only a good listener, he's also thoughtful … and willing to spend hours searching for exactly the right thing. A gift is something you can hold in your hand and say, “He must be thinking of me.” The gift itself is a symbol of that thought.

Meeting his family and friends

When a boyfriend introduces the woman in his life to his family and friends, he is serious. You can bet that as soon as he introduces you to his mother, she'll be reminding him of her love for grandchildren. So if he's getting the two of you together, he knows what he's getting himself into and that there might be a future with you. If he introduces to his friends and is proud to do so, he obviously wants to take the relationship to another level.

He Makes Himself a Part of Your Life

When he gets interested in your activities and decides to participate without your asking him, he is in love with you. He could have gone off with his friends on other engagements. If he's joining you for weekend errands and cuddling up on the couch with you with your and going with you to visit your family, he's in it for the long haul.

Talks about marriage and children

You may not feel significant until someone expresses love to you. When your boyfriend lovingly invests time, energy, and effort in you, it makes you believe you are significant. Without love, you may spend a lifetime in search of significance, self-worth, and security. But there's no faster way to stomp out the fire of new love than by making grandiose promises too soon, and no faster way to drive yourself into an anxious fit than by remaining unsure of how someone really feels about you. Love is not the answer to everything, but it creates a climate of security in which you can seek answers to those things that bother you. If your boyfriend inquires about your feelings on marriage and children and expresses his thoughts on the matter, chances are he's been thinking about a future with you. And if you both share the same feelings about marriage and creating a beautiful family together, that is the reward of love.

He Opens Up

When your boyfriend decides to talk openly about your relationship, listen to him. Emotional intimacy isn't easy for anyone so if he's baring his soul to you, it's not because he likes hearing himself talk.

He Tells You

Love is kind. If the he wants to communicate love verbally, he must use kind words. Sometimes our words are saying one thing, but our tone of voice is saying another so if he’s telling you how crazy he is about you, listen up.
