Saying ‘I love you’ is not the only way to express love and affection. This is especially the case with men, who are not always so expressive in talking about their true feelings. This is what men want their significant others to know when they have fallen in love them:
Men prefer expressing their true love with actions:
Most men prefer to express their love through actions, instead of saying it out loud. His love language could be helping you around the house, fixing broken things and looking after you when you are sick or tired. They try to make your world a better place.
They take commitment seriously
Men are usually known for being commitment phobic. They are always afraid of commitment, and are not very quick to make promises. But once they are serious about a relationship, they tend to take their commitment with utmost honesty and respect. Men mostly take longer to commit because they want to ensure that they are fully clear about their relationship. As per a survey of married men, 90% of men said that they would marry the same woman again.
They listen attentively:
Men are wired differently, and that is evident from the responses they give you when you are talking, chiming in with only a ‘yes’ or an ‘alright’, and not giving detailed answers. But just because they don’t have lengthy discussions with their significant others, it doesn’t mean that they are not paying attention to them. They might prefer listening to their partner quietly.
They need time and space:
Women like to spend each waking moment together with their partners usually, but men mostly prefer to have some alone time. Space between partners is extremely important for a balanced and healthy relationship to foster, and by not giving your significant other the space they need, they are likely to feel smothered, and not in a good way.
Men are bad at picking up hints:
Men are generally clueless when hinted about things, and should be explicitly told things to make it clear to them. This is especially important when the matter is about something you dislike or was offended about, and clearly communicating your dislike can yield positive results rather than giving subtle cues to your man.
