16 ways he's silently telling you he loves you

When it comes to love, actions speak louder than words.
  • Many men have a hard time expressing their love. But just because they don't say "I love you" often, doesn't mean those words aren't true for them. It's possible that your man doesn't think he needs to tell you because he believes his actions speak louder than words.

  • Whenever he does one of these 16 things, he's telling you he loves you without saying it out loud.

  • 1. He's got that grin just for you

  • When you're not paying attention, you catch him looking over at you and a grin sneaks across his face.

  • 2. He says "we"

  • Even if it was him that got into medical school, he phrases his announcement with a "we" because he believes you are a vital part to his acceptance. He doesn't see himself anymore; he sees both of you.

  • 3. He tries to make you laugh

  • One of his favorite things is hearing you laugh, so he does whatever he can to coax out your giggles.

  • 4. He helps you even when he's busy

  • He has to practice a presentation for work and meet his brothers to plan their dad's birthday party, but he chooses to put a new tube in your bike so that you don't have to take the bus tomorrow.

  • 5. He holds your hair when you throw up

  • There are few actions more loving than caring for someone who is barfing her guts out. If he takes care of you when you're a mess, he loves you.

  • 6. He covers you with a blanket

  • Your man loves you if he tucks a blanket around you when you're cold. Little acts of service like this show that he wants you to be happy.

  • 7. He makes you feel beautiful

  • Even if he doesn't tell you you're beautiful constantly, you feel beautiful just being around him.

  • 8. He makes you his No. 1 priority

  • 9. He remembers things that are important to you

  • He doesn't forget about little details that matter to you, because if it's important to you, it's important to him.

  • 10. He opens up to you

  • Opening up completely to someone - whether that's having deep conversations or breaking down when things get hard - is a sure sign he loves you enough to let you in.

  • 11. He calls you first

  • Before anyone else, you're the person he wants to tell news to. If he calls you first, he loves you best.

  • 12. He respects you

  • Your husband recognizes your individuality and respects you as person.

  • 13. He's happy when you're happy

  • If he loves you, your emotions are going to impact his own. He can't be chipper when you're miserable, because he feels your pain.

  • 14. He says "I'm sorry"

  • If he loves you, he's willing to admit his mistakes. If nothing else, he's sorry that he hurt you.

  • 15. He's kind to your friends and family

  • A man's love will extend to people who are important to the woman he loves. He will try his best to always leave your friends and family with a good impression.

  • 16. He makes plans

  • His future has you in it and he isn't shy about letting you know that. He'll set plans with you in mind.
