Social media messages, Facebook updates and gossip magazines near the cash register all share one common theme ... love is not meant to last.

If love is not meant to last, then why do we work so hard to find it? We praise love, we watch sappy chick flicks, we sing songs and read books all based on the four letter word.

The search for true and everlasting love is addictive and exhausting. But at the end of the day, it always proves to be worth the effort. True love is meant to be shared. Below are ten undeniable signs you are with a man who will love you forever.

Your problems become his problems

Marry the man who wants to solve your problems. When something is causing you distress, the issue no longer only effects you. It is effects him as well. Find comfort in his desire to serve you and help you overcome your trials.

He thinks before he speaks

A man in love will think before he speaks. He will take all possible scenarios and circumstances into account before he makes a comment or sparks a serious conversation. His ability to think problems through holistically is a sign he is not careless in his conversations, rather he is constructive and supportive.

He is all in, all the time

Look for a man who is completely devoted to you and the well-being of your relationship. Commitment is more than a feeling. Being committed is an action that is not circumstantial -- a man in love is there for the good, including the bad days, regardless of fleeting feelings.

He sees you as perfectly imperfect

Your flaws and quirks that are far from perfect are treated with respect and understanding. They are not demoralized or seen as a detrimental fault. A man in love can see your idiosyncrasies as an adorable sign that you are a real human being.

He’s the fix-it guy

A man in love will be attentive to your needs. He will become your personal handyman. If a thing is broken or beat down he will try to repair it. He is not afraid to take matters into his own hands.

He can find middle ground

It is impossible to please everyone. Find the man that hears your voice and tries to see your perspective before making his judgment. A man in love will invest in trying to understand your views no matter what situations may arise.

He never puts you in a corner

Marry the man who uplifts you, not the man who belittles you. A strong marriage is built on an undying support and belief in one another. A man in love will recognize the steps it takes to accomplish your dreams and is willing to sacrifice his time to help you at all costs.

He does the small things

Does he pay attention to the little things that matter to you? A man will prove he loves you by folding the blankets just the way you like, taking his shoes off at the door or playing your favorite band in the car. He will pay attention to the small things that mean the most to you.

He is your person

When the day turns for the worst and all you want to do is cry, he is there with chocolate and tissues. A man in love will sit and listen to you vent about your problems and will patiently hold your hand. He is the person you can experience all of the dark and twisty turns of life with.

He can rightfully put you in your place

A man who loves you knows there is a time and place to compliment and critique you. It is impractical to believe your marriage will only be filled with sweet-nothings and kind compliments. A sincere man will recognize the time to offer constructive feedback and will be there by your side as you both strive to be a little bit better.
