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.

4. He never thinks you’re not beautiful

There was something that drew you to him in the first place – something that made him think you were the whole package. That doesn’t go away on days where you’re not looking your best. A man who is truly in love will think you’re beautiful 24/7 even without makeup.

5. He makes an effort with your friends and family

When a man adores someone, he wants to get to know everything about the person who has stolen his affections. That includes their friends and family. A man in loves knows how important it is to win the favor of his partner’s loved ones, and he does this by showing a keen interest in them.

6. He’s not afraid to show his emotional side

Although it’s nowhere near as bad as it used to be, many men are still uneasy about showing their vulnerable side. They fear that it will make them seem less of a man. So a man who is able to open up about his struggles in front of you is a man who truly feels comfortable in your company.

7. You make him feel proud to be yours

Whenever his partner accomplishes something, he feels an intense feeling of pride. It reminds him just why he adores you so much.

8. He doesn’t want to change anything about you

When a man is in love, you become the nearest thing to perfect in his life. Everything you do is simply heaven to him.

9. He misses you when you’re away

When a man really adores his lover, he can’t stand the thought of being away from them. He has become used to spending practically every waking moment with them and feels like something is missing when they’re not there with him.

10. Your happiness is his highest priority

From the moment we’re born, we live in pursuit of happiness. A man in love is most happy when his partner is happy. He adores it when he is able to put a smile on his lover’s face and make them laugh. When they’re feeling down, he will make it his mission to cheer them up.

11. He doesn’t give up on you
