“Behavior is what a man does, not what he thinks, feels, or believes.” ~ Emily Dickenson
Men and women have their own unique ways of manifesting their love and affection. But, according to those universal male stereotypes about how “all men are the same,” men can be often misunderstood.
It’s a fact that women and men think in a different way. While men are often referred to as indifferent to their emotions, women, as governed by Venus, are known to be the exact opposite.
However, when a man is deeply infatuated with a woman, he’ll never hesitate to show his intense and profound feelings for her. Ladies, don’t worry, whenever this happens I assure you, you’ll feel it in your guts.
These are 8 behaviors men show when they’ve found their true love:
1. He Listens To You Carefully
Generally, women are much better listeners than men. To be frank, some men have absolutely atrocious listening skills.
The curious thing is that men will always intently focus on things of interest. So, when a man not only hears you but actively pays attention and intelligently responds – a skill called active listening – you can have confidence that he’s smitten.
2. He Loves How You Look On Your Worst Days
Remember how much effort we put into looking our best during those early dates? Of course. All of us want to look and feel good when meeting up with a potential partner. Then there’s the actual relationship. As we spend more time with each other, comfort levels build, and our need to impress declines sharply. We’re free to wander around in our pajamas, stain our shirts, and forgo the hair gel.
3. He Isn’t Afraid To Make Sacrifice
When we are in love, it’s very much easy to make personal sacrifices. And when a man is with his true love, he will feel discomfort to see his woman unhappy. He will desire to sort out the problem and do whatever he can. As such, making sacrifices for your happiness is one way a man demonstrates his love for you. He will almost always put you first, even if it means changing his plans or stepping out of his comfort zone.
4. He Shows Vulnerability (This Is An Important One)
Men being men, we’re cautious about showing any behavior that can be perceived by others as a weakness. In love, however, this deeply ingrained attitude often falls by the wayside – and we don’t care.
If we’re in love, we’re far more comfortable with feeling and acting vulnerable. Vulnerability will assuredly make several appearances throughout a relationship – especially if we’re with you only.
5. He Is Proud Of You (And Shows It!)
In love, a real man is not shy about saying how proud he feels about his partner. Whether it’s already a fantastic mother, a hard worker, or you’ve reached your goals, you can be sure that your efforts will not go unnoticed. In fact, all the admirable things you have done and for which you are working will bring you a great deal of pride and joy. On the other hand, a male will not feel too upset about losing to his partner, although if both are very competitive people, you will probably feel a little less crushed after a quick defeat.
6. He Fights With You
Sometimes along the path, we’ll come across some obstacles that might affect our relationship. In that moment, as humans, we tend to come off as a bit over-protective. But this is not to be understood as an insulting or drama-inducing moment. When we deeply care about someone, we feel like we would give our life for them within a blink of an eye.
When a man is in love with you and had emotionally invested himself in the relationship, he’ll do anything to prevent losing you, even if that sometimes means initiating a small fight. No matter how painful a fight can sometimes be, it’s a fact we only fight with people we care about.
Why? Deep inside, we’re afraid to lose them.
7. …But He Fights FOR You
When a man truly loves your soul and heart, he’s prepared to turn the world upside down just to protect you. He’ll do everything in his power to protect his loved one at all costs, even if that involves him risking his life for you. He’ll stand by you, and stick up for you to anyone who threatens your well-being, regardless if it’s physical or emotional.
A man who is deeply in love with you will fight for you and will fight to keep you. Make sure to tell him how much you love him.
8. He Treats Your Family And Friends With Respect
If a man knows that someone is important to his partner, then, they will become relevant to him. The reason is very simple: they love their family and friends, and the last thing they want is to hurt their feelings. Although you may not feel very comfortable with some of your family members, such as your in-laws, or one of your malicious friends, they will not tell you because they know how much they mean to them.
However, you must understand that there is also the other side of the coin, that is, the behaviors shown by men WHEN THEY ARE NOT ENAMORED. If you want to find out everything, then you can see what they do when they have stopped feeling appreciation for their partner or believe that the flame has gone out, but perhaps they dare not take the step and end the relationship…
