Actions speak louder than words – we’ve heard, known and experienced.
You might have often realised that your boyfriend or this particular person who claims to be in love with you and whom you equally like will not exactly fit into your definition of love or fulfil your expectations of a lover while this friend of yours will go out of his way to do things for you that you would generally expect from your lover, without ever being told what to do. Those are the times when you’re able to figure out what really means by love.
Take note of these subtle signs that define love:
He likes to be around you and if you specially find him around in public, then it’s a sure shot sign that he wants people to know that you’re together.
PAYING ATTENTION TO CONVERSATIONS
He loves talking to you and will want to attach his own opinions and beliefs to the things you say. He counter-questions you, shows curiosity and considers everything you say worthy of discussion, because he wants to get to know you better.
RANDOM TEXTS AND CALLS
Random texts once in a while within the day say that he is thinking about you. He might send simple messages like “I am thinking about you”, or “Have you eaten?”
REMEMBERING OF THE SIMPLEST OF THINGS
He has been paying heed to everything you’ve been saying to him, so that suddenly while you’re talking, he will draw reference from what you had told him months ago, and he remembers the exact statement you had put forth. He will also remember days he met you and shared amazing times together.
LEARNING TO LOVE WHAT YOU LOVE
Be it your pet, a specific food joint or an art form; he will be drawn to what you find happiness in. He loves you and hence he loves everything about you.
SHARING OF LEISURE PURSUITS
Men devote private time to hobbies or leisure pursuits to rejuvenate. If they include you in their hobbies then it is taken that he considers you both as one whole. He loves to have you around and he finds joy in sharing his life with you.
CHOOSING YOUR COMPANY OVER HIS FONDNESS
On asking, he might go to a music workshop with you that you have been longing to attend, even if he understands nothing about music. He loves your company and he wants to get closer to you, so he tries to be a part of your life by engaging himself to the things that you are engaged with.
NEVER FUSSING OVER YOUR CHOICES
It doesn’t matter to him whether you guys actually do anything constructive. What matters is the togetherness. Your presence itself is enough to spend a good time. What you do or where you go doesn’t make much of a difference.
GRANTING OF SPACE
As much as he loves to spend time with you, he understands the meaning of space and freedom. He will respect your private space and won’t intrude or push you to give him time when you want time to yourself. If he loves you he will know how to value your wants and choices.
Love can express itself without the mere utterance of the term ‘love’ or of the phrase ‘I love you’. Have you ever felt any of these little signs?
