Some men are not known for their capability of expressing their emotions. It can be hard to make into words just exactly what the mind and heart are feeling.
For those men, they prefer to let their actions speak louder than their words.
Men are brought up in today’s society with expectations that they become the pillars of support for friends, family and loved ones. Showing emotion isn’t considered “manly” by our peers.
But, when we finally decide to bring down the walls and let a person in, we make sure they know how much they’re loved.
Here are five things a man does when he’s truly in love:
He loves his partner for who they are, not what they look like
Ironically enough, as the world shifts more towards superficial beauty and a hook-up style culture, more and more men are choosing women for who they are rather than who looks the best.
Men that have fallen for their partners embrace them in every way. They’ve fallen in love with each and every flaw or imperfection they have, and want nothing more than to support that person’s dreams.
He protects his partner
Men who are truly in love are always on guard of their partner, making sure both physical and emotional harm never reach their loved one. They’re always ready to stand in harm’s way if it means the safety of their partner.
Additionally, they never ever think to hit or abuse the people they love.
He wants to know your opinion
Men that love their partners always value what they have to say. Whether it’s an extreme political view or a stance on religion or what color to paint the living room, he’s always willing to hear your side of things.
He goes out of his way for you
A man who is in love will almost always drop whatever he’s doing if his partner needs help. You’re easily his top priority, and if there’s any way he can fix your problem he’s going to do it. This could mean walking across town to get something you left at home or simply leaving a party early because you’d rather be somewhere else.
He’s confident enough to let you live your own life
A theme that commonly happens in long-term relationships is codependency. Some men struggle when their partners don’t spend every single second with them. If a man truly loves you, then he’ll be okay with you spending time with other people, whether it be girlfriends or coworkers.
He recognizes that we all need time to be independent and practice the things that make us who we are.
