    I don't want to disappoint you but not in my dictionary. If he says he cares for you, give him some time lots of people tend to fall in love with time, don't panic. Think about this you can't say you love someone if you don't care for them so your on the right path.

    "Cares for" usually means, "more than just likes" but less than "loves".

    No don't think so. If he really loves you he will say it and show it. He will not use the words " I care for you" it would be " I love you". Dont rush him because it will hurt you later. If he didnt really mean it.

    You are spot on! Every girl asks the same question when her boyfriend says he cares for her. Care is not tentamount to love. If he has never said he "loves" you then may be does not love you (yet). He may be trying to understand the depth of his own feelings. Wait and see. If he loves you, he will never hesitate a second to say it. But if he is confused or is not ready for committment then he will not be able to openly say "I Love you".

    No it's not the same.  He cares about you but he won't go as far as saying he loves you.  When a guy loves you he will have no problem telling you he loves you.

    Not necessarily....I think it means that he's feeling more than like, but less than love.

    Cares for is not the same as love, but some men can 't express their true emotions.  Sometimes actions speak louder than words.  It depends on the guy and how well you know him.  Only you can determine if be loves you.  Some men can easily say I love you but not really mean it.  Again, actions speak louder than words and determine how he greats you.

    I would just ask him "do you love me?" I don't like when people use lukewarm phrases like "cares for me" because it is so very shallow. Tell him to tell you what he means with "cares for you" and that you want him to be honest with you at all times and use only phrases that either  mean yes or no in some way.
