If he does these 6 things, he’s in love with you (no question)

When 'he loves me, he loves me not' isn't working, look for these signs that he's here to stay.
  • You've played "he loves me, he loves me not," but you're still unsure - and you've killed a whole lot of flowers along the way. If you're emotionally invested in your relationship, but still wondering how he feels, it might be time to look for the signs. The proof of his love might be right in front of you (no flower killing required).

  • 1. He bails on his friends

  • Sure, it might make him a less-popular member of the dude world, but if your man is willing to drop plans with his buddies to take you to dinner (or even better - run an errand for you), you know you've got him reeled in. For many men, bromance is a real - and sacred - thing. If he's suddenly nixing his Monday Night Football party or forgoing a weekend bachelor party just to spend time with you, he's definitely in love.

  • 2. He's a snuggle bug

  • As a woman, you might live for a good cuddle sesh, but guess what? Most guys don't. Sure, they enjoy physical intimacy as much as you do (or likely more), but cuddling isn't offering your man much physical gratification - unless he's in love. A man in love will snuggle like a toddler with a skinned knee for the woman he loves - which hopefully, is you!

  • 3. He makes plans (and they include you)

  • If you're like many women, you've been planning your future wedding, home and even that first bundle of joy since you were 5 years old. Your man, on the other hand, likely hasn't given those ideas more than a passing thought - unless he's in love. Men in love start planning. If he's talking about the future - and that future includes a big "we," you know he's head over heels for you.

  • 4. He surprises you

  • ...and not in a creepy, show-up-at-your-door-in-the-middle-of-the-night way. A man who's in love is more spontaneous than he was before, and that means you're likely to get a surprise or two. Whether that's a spur-of-the-moment weekend getaway or a thoughtful gift out of the blue, a surprise is sending one big message: The man is in love.

  • 5. He's into all your friends

  • Well, hopefully, he's not too into them. When a man is in love with you, he wants to know what makes you you - and the people who make you who you are. If your guy wants to hang out with your girlfriends and can't wait to meet your parents and siblings, it's definitely love.

  • 6. He radiates love

  • They say a pregnant woman glows. Well, a man in love shines. The love he feels shows in his daily actions - whether that's holding the door for an elderly woman, picking up a stranger's coffee tab or practicing Ziphub's motto to "Love One Another." When you're around him, it's obvious he's happy with life and loves sharing that joy with everyone - especially you!
