We are a generation of insecure individuals, so it’s easy to doubt your partner when they say that they love you. We constantly come up with reasons why we’re not good enough for our other halves or compare ourselves unfavorably with others.

If you’re desperate to know if the man in your life really does adore you, read on to see if he checks the points on this list…

1. He makes sacrifices for your relationship

You know that a man is head over heels in love when he makes concerted efforts to put you first. This can be anything from deciding to leave his own home to move in with you or ditching a viewing of the NBA finals for a romantic dinner date with you.

2. He actually listens to you

How can a man expect his partner to feel respected if he doesn’t take the time to listen when they have something important to say? Or when they have anything to say? Listening intently to someone a sign of respect, and it shows that he’s genuinely interested in you.

3. He gets jealous 

Okay, while jealousy is never a good thing if it gets out of hand, mild jealousy is a sign that he fears to lose you and that he sees you as being desirable to other people. It should inspire him to work hard to keep you by treating you like the king or queen that you are.
