8 Basic ways to know when a man is really in love with a woman
Have you ever been in love? If yes, then how did you know you were in love? There’s no scientifically proven or guaranteed way of knowing if you are truly in love with someone. It could be that the emotions you are actually feeling is lust, infatuation or ulterior-motivated love. Though love may connote different meaning to different people, but we should know that real love occurs naturally. One may ask, if it’s natural why then are people who have been heartbroken afraid to venture into the whole prospect of love a second time? At times the whole issue of love can be vague; it’s like day begging God not to allow night over-shadow it. Falling in love with someone can happen gradually as you get to know them better or instantly like love at first sight. Now, let’s look at 8 ways men can know if they are truly in love with a woman.
- You want to impress her at all cost.
You just find yourself doing things that ordinarily you wouldn’t in your wildest imagination dream of doing with some other girl, things like going vegetarian because she is, getting a strangely different hair-cut from your conventional style because she prefers it. When you just readily go the extra mile for to be comfortable and happy, then that could be love.
- You are scared silly of losing her someday.
Will she always be there for me when I need her? Will she eventually meet a more charming guy who may be better at practically everything than me? You feel insecure when she is with friends, not because of inferiority complex or that you aren’t man enough, but wait! Why didn’t you feel that way about your ex? Chances are you are in love with her.
- She is always on your mind.
She’s the first person you think of when wake to the dawn of a new day, and she’d be right there on your mind when you retire for the night. Try as you may, you just can’t get her off your mind.
- You prioritize her needs over yours.
In your scale or preference, her need comes first. Your needs and wants are inconsequential compared to hers, infact they don’t exist. You try to please her at all cost.
- Keeping eye contact.
In actual sense, if a man isn’t interested in something, he looks away most of the time. The expression in a man’s eye tells a lot about his feelings for a woman. So, if you are deeply in love with her, you want to maintain eye contact always either when you are together alone or when you are in a social function amid friends.
- You want to show her off to close acquaintances.
If you are in love with a girl, you just can’t wait to introduce her to family and friends. You want to know what they think about her. It’s a known fact that people in a man’s social circle tends to play a major role in the success or failure of a new-found love. Research made by (Patrick & faw, 2014) shows that people especially the men-folk are often motivated by marshal or massive support from their close associates to someone they love.
- You miss her when separated by distance.
You’ve been apart for only a few hours, but you miss her already. How much you miss her when you are apart signifies how emotionally-dependent and soul-attached to her you have become. It only points to one thing, love.
- You definitely like her and her imperfections.
You first liked her before your feelings for her became stronger. Liking someone is different from loving them. Though love may be stronger than like, the latter precedes the former. If a man is genuinely in love with a woman, he also liked her imperfections even though they aren’t in sync with his conventional pattern.
