Maybe you are in a relationship right now with someone and you’re in doubt or confused about whether or not the person truly loves you, this article is for you. Read on.
Does the person give you attention or you are the ones always asking and demanding attention?
We give attention to something or someone that interests us. We don’t waste our time on someone or something we are not interested in. So, when someone often gives you his or her attention, it’s a sign of interest or love he or she has for you.
That guy that has been eyeing you, always looking for your attention, that lady showing the green light is a sign of love too.
Another word for care is maintenance, upkeep, or treatment. So, when someone loves you, the person will show care. He will take you as his responsibility. He will show concern about your well-being.
Someone who has nothing for you doesn’t care, they just want to eat you and go but someone who cares will provide you with things necessary for your maintenance, upkeep, and treatment. He or she will provide to the best of his or her ability.
Respect means having or showing regard for someone, his personality, opinion, and decisions.
Does your partner respect you, does he show regard for your personality, opinion, and decisions? Does He treat you anyhow? Respect or lack of it is a sign that you are loved.
Giving is also a sign. The Bible said that God so loved the world and He gave His only Son, Jesus.
When someone loves you, he will give you something worth it, something valued and precious to them as you are precious to them. He will give you his money, gifts, time, company, and even himself because you are worth it.
Sacrifice has always been the true mark of true love. Love is selfless. Love spends itself at the expense of the person loved.
How often does he go out of his way because of you? How often does he or she sacrifice his comfort because of you? Now that you are still struggling to start life as a guy, can she endure and build a life with you? So, check it. Sacrifice is a sign of love.
We protect our own. We protect someone or something we consider important to us. Does he protect you from harm, his unruly family members, friends?
When there’s love, there will be protection. God protects us from the unkindness of the devil because He loves us.
Jealousy is a sign as well. When guys are coming around you as a lady wanting to be in a relationship with you, how does your guy react? Does he show concern that someone may take you from him or he doesn’t care about it?
When someone loves you, he will guard and protect you from being taken away by someone else. He will react and fight to win you over. Vice versa.
Forgiveness means to release the anger, hatred, and resentment you have against someone because of what he did to you which you considered unkindness.
Forgiveness is not easy especially when you did nothing wrong before the person wronged you, like cheating on you when you have been faithful to him.
When someone easily forgives you despite your wrongdoing, it’s a sign of love. Don’t take it for granted. Don’t think you deserve it. Forgiveness is a sign of love.
Tolerance means the ability to endure or to be patient with something or someone that’s not pleasant, it may be pain, hardship, or misbehavior.
When someone loves you, he should be able to tolerate your weaknesses, shortcomings, and imperfections.
This does not necessarily mean that you go on to misbehave or decide personally to be imperfect, no. It means that while the person is tolerant and patient with you, you work on your weaknesses and shortcomings because tolerance and patience have a limit. I have a limit to what I can endure. We are not God and His mercies endure forever.
Vulnerability is a state of being weak, defenseless, helpless, unprotected, unguarded, etc. It’s also a condition of releasing yourself to someone. Love always comes with vulnerability.
When you are vulnerable, you are susceptible to attack or harm. This is why many people are afraid to release themselves to anyone because of disappointment, blackmail, harm, heartbreak, etc. You see them appearing hard and fierce because they are afraid.
When someone is free with you, hides nothing from you, and exposes his or her weaknesses and shortcomings to you, it’s a sign of love and trust. Don’t hurt or take it for granted.
All other things being equal, when someone truly loves you, these 10 signs will be obvious. Love doesn’t hide itself.
