9. He Never Stays Mad
There’s no avoiding it: every couple gets in fights from time to time. Some fight every day, while others fight maybe once every few months. There’s no magic number, but whatever the case, it’s normal to butt heads with the one person you spend the most time with. We’re sure most of you can probably remember clashing with your siblings when you lived with them growing up.
The way to tell if he loves you is if it’s impossible for him to stay mad for long. Once the initial heat of the argument has simmered down and he has a moment to reflect, he usually realizes that it’s pointless to hold a grudge – he’d rather spend the time being happy with you. The cutest thing about it is that he won’t even stay mad if you’re the one in the wrong.
10. He Cares About Your Family
If he really loves you, he’ll probably be able to recall the nerve-racking first time he met your family in great detail. Why? Because he cared about making a good impression and probably thought about it constantly in the weeks leading up to the event. If he really, really loves you, it’s possible he even prepared a mental list of conversation topics and paid extra special attention to anything you revealed about them.
Once the first parental meeting is over and done with, he doesn’t simply move on with his life as normal. Your family are now part of his life and he genuinely cares about them because you care about them. Even if you have a pretty ‘difficult’ family, he’s going to make the effort because it’s important to you and he loves you.
11. He Tries To Fit In With Your Friends
Let’s be real here – the likelihood of your friends being the type of people your partner would hang out with is pretty low. That’s not to say they’re not great people, but the chances of them becoming besties is pretty slim. However, despite all of this, if your man loves you, he’ll go to great lengths to fit in with your friends.
He will take note of the group dynamics, figure out how to make all of them laugh, and pay attention to the things they say. He will hang out all day with them at a group event without complaint, because he knows these are your people. He’ll even put aside his differences to keep the peace with some of your more challenging friends. You know that when he’s doing things like that, he really is in love with you.
12. He’s Happy To Go Without
Whether it’s something as small as the last piece of chocolate or the window seat on a flight, or something bigger, such as a spare concert ticket for a band you love, your man will always be ready to go without in order to make you happy. It’s one of the best ways to tell if he is in love with you or not. Of course, you shouldn’t always be taking him up on the offer, but it’s nice to know he’s willing to sacrifice his own enjoyment for the sake of yours.
When it’s freezing outside and he gives up his jacket, take note of how much he’s willing to give up for your basic comfort and take a moment to appreciate it. You’ve landed yourself a keeper if you’ve met someone who will be happy to go without every time.
