But my husband, being the man he is, was with me the whole time.
He hugged me. He gave me my space. He got my favorite food. He called into work and stayed with me when I didn't want to be alone.
Looking back at this time, I came to one realization; he really loves me.
Although this is a more dramatic scenario, there are definitely ways you can tell when your man is completely in love with you.
It is obvious in his actions- actions not done for just anyone in particular.
Although there are plenty more, here are 5 things that a man is only willing to do for that woman, the woman he loves.
1. He will really, and truly, listen to you
When you really care about someone, what they say matters to you. You take their opinions and advice to heart, and actually seek them out.
For men this is especially true.
You will know he loves you because he trusts you enough to seek out your help or guidance, and he will ACTUALLY do it.
2. He will have discussions and arguments with you
Now this might seem a little strange, but would you really argue with someone you don't care about?
The answer is probably no, versus someone who you really care about and want to resolve an issue with.
Obviously if it is happening all the time, and it seems he is always picking a fight that is probably not too healthy. But a man who really loves you will always want to work things out, and will stick around to fight for it. Even with you.
3. He will be willing to change his mind
Even the most stubborn of men will be willing to change their way of thinking for the woman they love.
This goes back to the first one, which is because he loves and respects you so your ideas are important to him.
He will be willing to compromise with you on things he might have had firm opinions on before, and he will do it with a happy and willing heart.
4. He will always fight for you
This goes beyond the male ego who just wants what is his. This is because he knows who and what he has is one of a kind, something he can't just find anywhere else. And because of this he is willing to fight for it.
