How Can I Tell If My Boyfriend Really Loves Me

"How can I tell if my boyfriend really loves me?" This question can keep popping up no matter how long you've been together with your significant other. Unfortunately, there isn't a clear-cut answer for this. How you feel about him and how he expresses his love for you is what's truly important. Men tend to express themselves through their actions, so even if he isn't shouting "I love you" from the rooftops, he might be showing his love in other ways. Here are some sure-fire signs of love:

He's Thoughtful
In a relationship, it's all about thinking of one another, and if your man is showing you how much he cares through the little things, it's safe to say he's hooked. Is he bringing you soup when you're sick? Does he plan dates around the things you like to do? Does he surprise you with a thoughtful gift on the holidays or on your birthday? Does he make an effort to spend time with your friends and family, knowing it makes you happy? A guy in love is going to go out of his way to show you that you're number one in his life.

He Talks About the Future
Men who are just interested in dating and aren't seriously in love, don't like to use the "we" word or talk about upcoming events more than a week away. If your guy is planning a romantic trip for the two of you to Italy next summer, he's thinking long-term. Not only is he looking into the future, but he's also showing you that he's making time for you, which is always a good sign.

He's Committed
A guy who says he wants to be with you and only you is someone who is in love. If the guy you've been dating for over a year can't commit, chances are he doesn't feel the sparks. You might be able to convince yourself that he's slowly falling in love, but don't get your hopes up. If you've found out that he's been with other women or has a wandering eye, it's time to cut your losses and move on because he isn't the right guy for you.
