In a relationship, no three words ever seem to make us act as crazy as the phrase “I love you.” When you hear this, it’s easy to just believe it on face value. Unfortunately, not every guy who says these words is honest when he says them. Some even will tell you they love you just so that they can use you or abuse you.
The fact is that you can’t trust a guy’s words when it comes to showing love. If you want to see how men say I love you and how much he really cares about you, look at his actions. The following ten actions are way better indicators that he really cares about you than what’s coming out of his mouth.
1. How often he changes his behavior when you tell him something he’s doing is upsetting you.
A guy who actually loves you will do whatever he can to keep you happy by his side. If he hears that something is bothering you, a guy who loves you will fix it. If he ignores it, he’s basically saying that your happiness is not enough of a priority for him to change that behavior.
2. His commitment.
A guy who says “I love you” but won’t commit is a guy who doesn’t actually love you. If he makes a point of asking you to be official with him and makes moves to put you off the market, then he definitely loves you.
3. How quickly he picks up your calls.
Even if he says he loves you, a man who’s “too busy” to text back for days or hours probably isn’t being legit. Think about it. When you love a guy, you can’t wait to hear from him, can you? The same applies for guys. Guys will make time for things they care about.
