Imagine the first moment you met each other. Was it love at first sight? Was he a friend who’s always been there but now you’re looking at differently? Or was he the one from the first time you laid your eyes on him?
No matter which way it started, you’re already here with him. You’ve had your first date or maybe even your first kiss. You’ve had so many good times together and sometimes even the bad times too.
But the ultimate question still lingers in your mind all the time: does he love me?
Because he can do all these things he’s doing, he can date you, make you feel happy, and care for you, but it doesn’t mean he loves you. So how do you truly know without asking bluntly and scaring him away?
If you have no idea how to look for the hints then please continue reading below on which are the ten signs to look out for to know if he surely loves you:
1. He wants to make you laugh every day.
The first hint of love to look out for is if he makes the effort to make you laugh every day. He never passes up the opportunity to make a joke or to do a silly face because your laughter is probably music to his ears. Humor is one of the ways guys do to sneak into a girl’s heart, so you better hold him up and tell him that he’s already there.
2. He always makes sure that you’re safe.
The second hint is if 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.
3. He supports you in what you want to do.
The third hint to look out for is if 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 ever want a loved one to feel like he doesn’t care at all or he doesn’t approve of your dreams.
4. He gives you sweet surprises.
The fourth hint to pick up on is if he gives you sweet surprises. It doesn’t have to anything big because it can only be a cute stuff 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?
5. He shows you off around his friends.
The fifth hint of love you can consider is if 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, 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.
6. He tells you his secrets.
The sixth hint to know for sure is if he tells you his secrets. Men are usually secretive and avoid emotional discussions, so 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.
7. He wants you to be yourself.
The seventh hint of his love for you is if he wants you to be yourself, and why is this? Because he loves you for who you are so 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.

8. He is proud of you.
The eight hint to see if really know if he loves you is if 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.
9. He makes you his priority.
The ninth hint to check off your list of does-he-loves-me is if he makes you his priority. If he really, truly loves you, then 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 as well if he goes the extra mile to never make you feel neglected, ever.
10. He never hesitates to tell you he loves you.
The last hint you should wait for is the most obvious one: he tells you he loves you with no hesitation. Now, if he says this to you, then it really means that he does love you! How do you know? Look him in the eye when he says this, watch his lips move, and feel his heartbeat go a mile a minute, then you will really know he means it with all his heart.
We could wish all we want for guys to wear placards with their feelings written all over it, but unlike most women, they don’t hold their feelings on their sleeves. While these may not apply to all guys, it’s only a mere standard list of common things to look out for, and it never hurts to check does it?
If all else fails, you can always confront him face to face. There’s nothing more romantic than standing in the rain, your heart pumping from running, his handsome face all confused, and your drenched head and passionate energy as you ask with all your might, “do you love me?!”
