23 Signs Your Boyfriend Really Loves You

sweet couple

He’s probably the type of guy who always says, “I love you” but how can you really tell that he does? If only finding the answer is as easy as plucking petals off a flower, then you don’t have to worry anymore. I hope everyone knows that words are just words, and it’s still actions that really count. Not all people who say those three words and eight letters really mean it. Love is a tricky thing, so you should be wise as well.

23 Signs Your Boyfriend Really Loves You Video

Find out the answer as you read through the signs I listed down if your boyfriend really loves you.

1. He always makes a great effort.

A boyfriend who truly loves you will not be contented with making mediocre efforts because he always wants the best for you. Even if it’s too much for him, he will do it because he’s happy to do it.

2. He always finds a way to be with you. 

A guy who truly loves you will free his time for you no matter how hectic his schedule is. Remember that there is a big difference between someone who frees his time to talk to you and someone who talks to you during his free time.

3. He stares at you as his dream has finally come true.

He looks at you like he can’t believe you’re with him. This is the kind of guy who is not looking at you for lust and desire, but rather it’s a look reserved only for you. I have to admit I find this sweet, especially if my boyfriend tells me, “I can’t believe someone like you is already mine.” I can’t help but shudder in delight every time I hear this, and I feel his love for me.

4. He can’t keep his hands off.

Being in love with you means he loves to stay close to you, touch you, and hold your hand. Touching you in different ways like stroking a stray hair off your face or holding your hands in public shows how much he adores you and how proud and lucky he is to have you.

5. He makes you laugh.

The first hint of love to look out for is if he makes an effort to make you laugh every day. He never passes up the opportunity to make a joke or to make a silly face because your laughter is probably music to his ears. Humor is one of the ways guys do sneak into a girl’s heart, so you better hold him up and tell him that he’s already there.

If he is comfortable enough to make a fool of himself to make you laugh, then there is no doubt that he is in love with you. A guy who is into you loves to see you smile and will do everything he can to bring it out, especially when you’re feeling down.

6. He cuddles you like a baby. 

If he loves to cuddle you with pure love and affection, then you’re lucky enough to have him. A guy who loves to embrace his girl like she’s a baby is a sign of gentle love. It could also be a sign that you are a precious treasure to keep and handle with care for him.

7. He misses you when you’re apart.

When a guy loves someone, he longs for her presence and misses her when she’s gone, even if he sees each other for like an hour. He will make a call or send text messages just to talk to you and feel like you’re with him though you’re far.

8. He doesn’t give up.

He doesn’t quit without a good fight. No matter what your relationship has, he will try his best to find a solution to solve it. He doesn’t care what others will say. He always endures, and he doesn’t lose hope.

9. He gets jealous but knows how to control it.

To get jealous is just normal in a relationship because it is a sign of overflowing love. It is also a sign that he’s afraid to lose you. However, a guy who truly loves you will not be overly jealous because he understands that it is bad for you and your relationship.

10. He pauses his favorite video game to talk to you.

We all know that there is something about games and guys that are just inseparable. But when he pauses his video game or cancels his night out with friends to talk and be with you, he surely prioritizes and adores you.

11. He tells you his secrets.

Men are usually secretive and avoid emotional discussions. If he tells you his deepest, darkest secrets, and isn’t afraid to be emotionally vulnerable to you, then that’s a definite sign that he loves and trusts you. He has invited you inside his personal bubble, a level of closeness that you won’t share with anyone else.

A guy who has nothing to hide is better than someone who tends to be very mysterious and sketchy. If he opens up about things he never even dare to tell his closest buddies, then it means he trusts you and really loves you.

12. He includes you in his plans.

If a guy includes you in his plans, it shows that he sees you as part of his future. Guys wouldn’t do that unless they consider the girl as their life partner.

13. He makes you his priority.

If he makes you his priority, he will consider you a special person, and a special person means extra attention, extra effort, and on top of the priority list. Another bonus thing is if he goes the extra mile, never to make you feel neglected.

14. He introduces you to his family and friends.

He shows you off around his friends. You are part of his social circle, and you know it because you’re always there when he hangs out with his friends. He invites you to their parties and brings you as his plus one to all sorts of occasions. It’s not only that, and he’s not afraid to show you off, tell his friends how proud he is of you, and how much happiness you bring into his life.

You’ll know if the guy is serious about you when he introduces you to his family and friends. This takes the relationship to another level, and not all guys are ready for that unless he’s in love with you.

15. He texts you each morning and night.

You know he’s in love with you when he texts you “good morning” the moment he wakes up and asks, “how’s your day?” before he goes to bed to make sure you’re alright. These acts show that he thinks of you every day and night, and that’s when you know you’ve got him.

16. He stands by you through good times and bad times.

When a guy truly loves you, nothing will be more important than being there for you in times of trouble. He’ll step up and be there no matter what the situation is.

17. He forgives you.

If he really loves you, he can’t stay mad at you for too long without regretting it. He’ll make the first move and apologize even if he’s not wrong.

18. He respects you if he really loves you.

Love is all about respect. You’ll know he’s in love with you if he respects your decision, opinion, and everything about you.

He supports you in anything that you do. One way of showing love is showing support, so if you constantly find him as your number one cheerleader, then it’s highly likely that he loves you. He would never want a loved one to feel like he doesn’t care at all or he disapproves of your dreams.

19. He wants you to be yourself.

He wants you to be yourself, and why is this? Because he really loves you for who you are, he would never want you to be anybody else. He truly loves you if he lets you be the most authentic and best version of yourself because he accepts every special thing and every flaw about you.

20. He loves spending for you.

Whether it is time or money, if you become his priority, he’ll sacrifice these things for you. He’ll love giving gifts for you, paying for your meal, or spending time with you when he could be working. It doesn’t matter how expensive it is, but what matters is how much he is willing to sacrifice.

21. He always makes sure that you’re safe.

Suppose he makes sure that you’re safe all the time. He either drives you home or calls you immediately to check if you got back safely, he steers away from sketchy areas when you’re both walking, or he randomly checks up on you to see how you’re doing. Your well-being is his priority, and of course, he wouldn’t want anything terrible to happen to someone he loves.

22. He gives you sweet surprises.

He gives you sweet surprises. It doesn’t have to be anything big because it can only be a cute stuffed toy, a few pieces of roses, or just a small box of chocolate. The important thing is the thought, effort, and time that went to put it together. If you’re not anyone special to him, then why should he be taking the time to give you surprises, right?

23. He is proud of you.

He wants you to live your life unapologetically, and no matter what you do, no matter which path you take or decision you make, he never fails to let you know that he is proud otherwise. When you love a person, you will celebrate that person’s victories and comfort him in his failures, and this is something he’s very much willing to do as well.

A poor guy who only has $100 in his pocket but has bought you something worth $200 is a better lover than a rich guy who has $1 million but has only bought you something worth $100,000.

There are no specific ways on how you’ll find out that the guy is really in love with you because, at the end of the day, it’s still up to your own feelings and instinct. But I hope these signs can be your guide so you would know what to look out for in your boyfriend beyond his every “I love you.”

    • By boyfriend does all this except texting and calling due to the fact that he’s always busy,and for the few months that we’ve been together he hasn’t bought any gift for me

  6. Tbh I dont know why I came on here I’m just very bored, anyways I’ve had a lot of past toxic relationships with dudes that just used me or left me then came back with another girl, sometimes id even get texts from other girls on their phones and all it broke my heart to see some guys are like this and remember ladies not all men are like this and they have feelings too so just treat a person the way you would want to be treated never flirt with another person, never cheat or send inappropriate photos like you wouldn’t like it if someone did that to you right? so literally cheating is a choice and if you do it there’s no going back on dis on sis. My boyfriend aka my future husband ofc ahahaa anyways me and him met on a app I made a group call so there were like others guys in there and we were chilling and all but then I had gotten really upset with the relationship I was currently in at that time so I decided to delete the group chat I made but as all of us were in that group chat and this one dude I talked too he seemed pretty dorky of course but I was too upset to contact anyone but anyways after I left he told me he looked for me about for two months or so because he felt a connection well a weird feelings toward me that he hasn’t felt toward anyone he started to cry because it was mixed emotions of happiness and weirdness all those sorts of stuff when I first got the message from him he said and I quote “OMG IT UUU ITS REALLY YOU ITS BEEN FOREVER” and I responded with “wut” haha I was so confused but then it got weird I was in a relationship with another dude at that time and me and him became best friends during it so whenever me and my “boyfriend” got into an argument he was and still is there for me then I started to get a weird feeling for this dude ya know? it felt like I was holding in gas but much more painful like a sworm of butterflies in my tummy that’s when I knew I really really liked this guy. now keep in mind he lives in another state and I was in a relationship so I called it off with him plus he just turned 18 and im yeah not saying lol so I broke up with him tbh he wasn’t upset because he understood were friends till this day but yeah lol a few months went by and I asked my bestie if he wanted to start dating he was so surprised because no girl has ever liked him before and hes never had a girlfriend so im his first and forever will be ofc but yeah our relationship is amazing he has access into my account and same goes for me we are super supportive for one another sadly I am grouded so I cant facetime him and text but I have my laptop and that doesn’t do anything ppfftt but we do send letters even if it takes time at least I still get to hear from him idk why I wrote this its probably boring but yeah we have been together almost four months now yayyyy our goal is a year then more to go on anyways he does all dis stuff now bai bai

  7. Crazy my man is weird I’m simple to please and make happy. We use to have a rule do what makes each other happy, than we will be happy. But lately he’s lacking the RE-ASSURANCE part and lately its been hard to swallow. At this point I don’t know if we coming or going. It’s hard because I want to just move on. But at my age I’m tired of starting over. Sometimes I wished he just grab me an just hold me tightly like its his last but he will just say its not me. Crazy part is he cheated before and it seemed like she got al the romance part of him and its now. That he wants to right his wrongs things have changed but in ways they haven’t. It sucks because he’s amazing with my children, I want to be amazing to him but we keeps his family guarded only allowed to really talk to his mama. When I talk to my girlfriends they make me feel grateful due to what they go threw but I’m still battling if he’s my SOULMATE.He doesn’t text or call normal…I get flowers and bills paid…..after sex no cuddling right away(he makes sure I get mines)…..he’s a hardworker……he can cook….nice body….smell good look good…..but I can tell u a million reasons why I love him….unsure if he can do the same. Trying to give him 8 more months but unsure if I’m going to make it…. Life is hard but I just want a man who loves me like I love him…

  8. Please my bf is always chatting with ex and other gals about hw he luv dem nd wen ask him about it he say is just a chat please is dat one cheating or not cuz am teyed of it

  9. If my boyfriend on occasions goes out for dinner with his ex and he gives her flowers is this ok if he is my boyfriend
    She has cancer and is having chemo therapy he talks about her alot
    Tells me he is going out with her but dont introduce me to her
    He told he she sent a picture of herself when she was in bed is this respectful to me ee

  10. my boyfriend does most of these but he doesn’t respect me. he believes in man’s superiority and he would never allow me to negotiate with him, have fight against it so many time just can help it because I love him and I’d love him more if he respect me

  11. i feel like my boyfriend is talking to other girls and we have a distance relationship but in the past we had dated my friends had told he that he was talking to other girls when me and him was dating in the past and we had just got back together i dont know what to believe or what should i do

  12. Me n my boyfrd are so in love but my mother says that he is not good enough for me but he does everything he can to make our relationship work n he never gives up on us he always stays with me no matter how bad my mum treats him…should I jst let him go and make my mum happy or I should also fight for him

    • GIRLLL DONT i have the same issue my boyfriend is a great guy and he loves me and respects me for me but my parents dont see it and are worried about my future and think the same thing if he supports you and works it out do not leave him to make your mother happy because in the end you wont be happy because you lost someone great so stay with your boyfriend he sounds like a good guy and person

  13. Hmm. He does most of these. But I’m confused Bcos he’s crushing on my friend. Their relationship is even getting more closer that they communicate everyday. I’ve asked him several times to reveal the truth to me, but he always put up fight on this

  14. If my boyfriend loves me then why he on viber message other women and allways on facebook messenger I don’t understand why he doing it

  15. I’m kind of scared because it’s Christmas Eve night and I looked at our texts and he said Gn but he usually says I love you and and didn’t and last night I had a dream were we got in a fight and its also hard for me because I get paranoid all the time so easily and I have trust issues and he never even tells me his secrets I have told him so much I just don’t know what to do any ideas btw I’m in middle school so I’m not an adult

  16. I do all this and more for the women I love but she keeps turning cold to me , what can I do to re kindle the passion and warmth any ideas?

  17. My best friends are saying my ex is going to ask me out and one of his friends ask him if he was and he said “Maybe” what if does, I mean I still love and all but he’s also my best friend.

  18. Me and my bf love each other a lot ,and he use to get jealous if he see I’m talking with other guy and I did the same to him ,I’m Christian he is Hindu the problem is our caste,but can’t live without each other we have plan for love marriage bcoz our parents wouldn’t allow us for this so can I get any solution please…

  19. My boyfriend he doesn’t call me or text me if I didn’t he works 5 days a week and he finished working afternoon since we’re together he never take me out I only feel being in couple with him just when he calls me sometimes to go to his house he never say to me I love u or find a time for me he’s always out with his friends he gives them more time than me I don’t know if he really wanna be with me but I really like him he doesn’t give me gifts or to feel like I’m in couple I don’t know and I’m confused in the same time

  20. I’m really confused
    My boyfriend doesn’t talk to me that much despite us being countries apart. He post pictures of other girls on social media and claims they’re his cousins and he still has a picture of his baby mama on his instagram , after having sex he goes to his phone and we just lay there without saying words until he makes a move for a second round. Our conversations are only long when we speaking sexually about meeting up or he wants nudes. I’m about 7 years younger than him and I feel like he doesn’t respect me. When I confronted him about it and said if it continues I’m gonna be done with him all he said was , you can leave if you want to I won’t stop you. I do love him but as time goes by I realize that I may end up hurt later. Should I just break up with him?

    • Yes you should…. It’s clear that he is only down for your body and doesn’t give a damn about you. Reasonable guys cuddle their woman after sex and say sweet words about you and how much he loves and adores you. Get out while you still can

      • I am confused because he does almost everything in that list and says he does not want to loose me yet there is still another woman in he life they have a baby

        • Is that woman and him dating? If so maybe you should tell her because a guy who is with someone else but yet tells another women he wants them is wrong.. you wouldn’t like it if that was you and he was saying stuff like that to another woman.

          Please let that woman know that he’s doing that so she can leave that ssshole.

  21. My boyfriend does most of these but some he does. I haven’t met his friends or family but he always tells me he wants me too…. sometimes it seems like he’s embarrassed of me. Idk what to dooooo🤧

  22. I’m so confused…… There are many things which he never does and some of the things which he does wholeheartedly. Idk what to do😞

    • Same here sometimes he’s a loving boyfriend then other times it’s like do I keep trying or what then he does some of these… I’m confused and feel like sh*t on what to do half of the time.

  23. I love a girl truly but she already has a boyfriend and she loves him very much….
    But I can’t live without her and I’m scared to propose her because she may break her friendship with me…..If that happens I can’t live

  24. I Have a new boyfriend..hes amazing…hes met all of these beautiful things in a relationship…he works many long hours..and out of state..He comes to see me as much as possible..hes always telling me he will pay for me to come visit him..we are both wanting a long-term loving relationship…he has also said I will have his last name soon..he said things are already happening you will see…Hes such a great boyfriend..I LOVE HIM…HES TOLD ME I MAJE HIM FEEL SO VERY COMFORTABLE TO BE WITH. AND HE ALWAYS SAYS HE LOVES ME AS WELL..HE SAID EVENTUALLY WE WILL HAVE TO MOVE ON…I BELIEVE HE NEANS MARRIAGE..HE SAID LAST NIGHT WE NEED TO TALK..HE WILL COME TO SEE ME IN 2 WEEKS…I FEEL VERY VERY BLESSED….

  25. My man is the perfect man I’ve ever found in my life. He’s so passionate about us and has also introduced me to his parents. His mother loves me like I’m her own daughter.

  26. my boyfriend dose not pause he game to text me and then he ask if I want to call and say yes and he dose not even call then give me an excuse and I cry but he dose everything foe me Idk what to do anymore

  27. well i always ignore this every efffort listed above , he always does these things to keep me happy, i appreciate having him.

  28. What of I’m the one that spends the money on him because he’s not financially stable, do you think he might be using me?

  29. My boyfriend he’s jelous if he sees me with a boy or chatting with a boy he introduced me to his family but he dont spend a cent nor time with me and he dont share his secret with me and he cheat on me without showing me or telling that he is cheating

  30. I’m one who believe in a man not just loving you but moreover, most relevant he is respecting you and how you’re feeling.

    A man who call you always/each time he has available, not just a lil “text”but CALL, is a man who does care and TRULY adore/love u, not just a lil text.

    A man who sit around making “EXCUSE after EXCUSE”as to why he can’t kall u, be wit u, can care less, that’s how i feel and i am born during 1970s, my lil bro upper 1980s, he always re-assure his woman she older too, and they are very much IN LOVE He NEVER sit around makin’ excuses.

    He will always APOLOGIZE even if she is wrong, and NEVER can stay a long time “mad if ever.”the 2 barely fight, rarely even a small argue, only here and there,they are clearly on the same level and IN LOVE. Each other’s BFF…”It’s clear, even with almost 2 decades between them.
    yep. he will be 27 soon and he always go ALL out for her, without making excuses at all.”or try to better himself day and night,for her, and himself, to finally be “truly happy in life.”

    A “mature man over 18 to 100 would always remember to RE-ASSURE you.”

    That is a huge thing for me, a real top-one, a biggie for me, or it isn’t real, nor true love/real love.

    i love this and glad i am finding your site, many of them i do agree with.

  31. He doesn’t send me sweet messages, he doesn’t tell me his secret nor misses me when we re apart he only tells me how much he loves me and also he does other things his excuse is he is busy he makes out time for me, but all I want is him and him alone

  32. It’s a good one.
    But my boyfriend’s never introduced me to his family or friends.
    And this i know for sure, he’s a jealous type.

      • He loves me after knowing that I also start liking him he start ignoring me because his family
        Already find one girl for him to get Marry before coming me in his life actually he doesn’t want that girl he dint saw her pic also if he be with me js little more time for him it’s difficult because he can’t going to leave me and his become selfish for his family that’sY his suddenly start ignoring me.. I want him in my life because both the side we love each other ..so what to do in it??
