Finding out why someone loves you can leave you filled with joy … and anxiety. Knowing someone loves you for the wrong reasons can be devastating while realizing your guy loves you for the right reasons is exhilarating. So, how do you figure it out? Here are six signs he loves you for all the right reasons.
1. He laughs at your craziness
You know your man loves you in an amazing way when he can just laugh at your outlandish or awkward behavior. He might enjoy it, he might even ignore it sometimes but he doesn’t take it too seriously. And he certainly doesn’t make you feel bad about who you really are. He loves you for you – crazy and all.
2. He likes to watch you grow
A great guy loves you right when he enjoys watching you grow into the person you want to be. He may help you on your journey to being the best you, but he’s also happy to sit back and witness you growing into your lovely self, all on your own. He doesn’t need to direct you but he’ll give you his perspective if you ask.
3. He fights for your happiness
You know your guy truly appreciates you when he pushes you to be happy. Loving someone is more than having feelings; it requires action and communication. So you know your guy loves you for the right reasons when he shows his love through his actions. Your comfort, contentment and self-worth are important to him. He shields you from criticism and doesn’t let you hold yourself back. His focus is your joy, which means he’s truly in love.
4. He encourages your success
You have a good guy on your hands if he’s your biggest cheerleader. He knows supporting your passions or career is part of being a great partner, so he’s there to support you. He doesn’t love you because of all the sacrifices you make for his happiness and his life because he doesn’t want you to put your life on hold for him or anyone else. He wants to see you succeed.
5. He doesn’t notice your flaws
Love is blind. And when a man loves you for all the right reasons he just won’t see the things you dislike about yourself. Your family and friends may even be able to call out your faults but he genuinely doesn’t notice a problem. He thinks you look fine without makeup, you haven’t gained any weight and you smell good after a workout.
6. He actively learns about you
Your man loves you for the right reasons when he has lots of things to love. He goes out of his way to learn everything he can so he has even more to love about you. He won’t wait for you to tell him, either. He’ll ask you all about your hobbies, dreams, opinions and past. And be prepared to spill your secrets because he wants to know everything, so get ready to be open and honest.
When someone loves you for who you are there’s almost no better feeling. Being loved for less than stellar reasons may make you feel good in the short run, but will likely leave you hurt and feeling unappreciated. You’re truly lucky in love when you find someone who accepts you as you are and loves you for all the right reasons.
