5 things men are only willing to do for the woman he loves

Posted April 21

It was two weeks after our wedding when I got some pretty devastating news.

After just having a glorious wedding filled with promises of forever, love, and laughter, my parents broke the news to me that they were separating after 27 years of marriage.

To say I was crushed would be an understatement.

There were a couple nights where I just sobbed uncontrollably into my pillow, not wanting to do anything or see anyone.

But my husband, being the man he is, was with me the whole time.

He hugged me. He gave me my space. He got my favorite food. He called into work and stayed with me when I didn’t want to be alone.

Looking back at this time, I came to one realization; he really loves me.

Although this is a more dramatic scenario, there are definitely ways you can tell when your man is completely in love with you.

It is obvious in his actions- actions not done for just anyone in particular.

Although there are plenty more, here are 5 things that a man is only willing to do for that woman, the woman he loves.

1. He will really, and truly, listen to you

When you really care about someone, what they say matters to you. You take their opinions and advice to heart, and actually seek them out.

For men this is especially true.

You will know he loves you because he trusts you enough to seek out your help or guidance, and he will ACTUALLY do it.

2. He will have discussions and arguments with you

Now this might seem a little strange, but would you really argue with someone you don’t care about?

The answer is probably no, versus someone who you really care about and want to resolve an issue with.

Obviously if it is happening all the time, and it seems he is always picking a fight that is probably not too healthy. But a man who really loves you will always want to work things out, and will stick around to fight for it. Even with you.

3. He will be willing to change his mind

Even the most stubborn of men will be willing to change their way of thinking for the woman they love.

This goes back to the first one, which is because he loves and respects you so your ideas are important to him.

He will be willing to compromise with you on things he might have had firm opinions on before, and he will do it with a happy and willing heart.

4. He will always fight for you

This goes beyond the male ego who just wants what is his. This is because he knows who and what he has is one of a kind, something he can’t just find anywhere else. And because of this he is willing to fight for it.

He would never fight for something or someone he doesn’t really care about, but because he loves you he will always be there to defend you or help you in any way he can.

5. He will basically do anything for the woman he loves

A man in love will support his lady, help her, guide her, have fun with her and share dreams with her.

Love means that he wants to spend his life with you by his side, and face whatever obstacles may come.

If you want a reassurance that your man really loves you, just look out for these 5 things.

If he has done them and so much more, never let that man go.
