So, you are going out exclusively with this special guy and everything seems to be going great. He treats you like you're the only girl in the world and there is undeniable chemistry. It is obvious that he loves spending time with you. You admit to yourself that you are slowly falling for him, but there is one problem: You have no idea how he really feels about you. Why? He has not said a word about it.
Unlike women, men are not verbally expressive about matters of the heart. Men have their own reasons for clamming up, but if your man hasn't or won't talk about how he feels, perhaps he thinks that it is too early in the relationship. He is afraid to commit. He has been hurt in the past and fears rejection. He is simply acting like a normal guy who would rather do things than articulate them in words. He is falling for you but is too scared to say so.
Obviously, you are dying to know how he feels but do not want to appear too eager. You want the relationship to progress in a way that doesn't freak him out. If you are in this kind of dilemma, don't lose hope. There are ways to find out what his real feelings for you are without forcing him. How a guy behaves often gives away his true feelings.
Here are the top six signs that your guy loves you but is too scared to admit it.
If your guy remembers all the things about you—trivial or not— he is into you. If you notice him remembering your favorite mocha frappe at Starbucks, that you still cry every time you watch Titanic, and even the color of your dress the first time you met, this guy is 100% hooked. Only a guy who cares would remember small details that mean a lot to you.
This one is tricky since he might also be respectful. However, you won’t get that feeling that he’s dating other women at the same time as you. He will try and move the relationship to exclusivity as well, because it’s normal for guys who love you to want to take you off the market and ensure that their competition doesn’t do it first.
A classic sign of love from a guy’s perspective is that he feels completely comfortable opening up to you and sharing his deepest feelings. Naturally, a lot of men are very guarded when it comes to sharing their emotions, so if he has chosen you as a person that he can really talk to, you can be pretty sure that he is planning to have you in his life for a long, long time!
If he acts very protective of you and makes sure you are safe at all times, that is one sign of his deep affection for you. When you are walking together, is he right next to you? Does he always let you walk on the safer side of the sidewalk? A man who is falling in love will make sure his girlfriend gets home safely (or will at least call to make sure she gets home). These may seem like small things, but together they are a sign that he wants to make sure you are safe and sound.
A guy who is smitten won’t have a problem talking about future plans that include you. Men will never, EVER talk about future plans with anyone they they don't feel seriously about. If he talks about the future plans, or inquires about yours, this a sign that he wants you in his life long term. If, without flinching, he talks about a family with you, he is already hinting that he wants you to be part of his future. That is definitely a cue that he would like to be with you for good. When a man realizes that you just might be his future wife.
Trust is not something that most men just hand out the second they meet you. They need time to get to know you so they can determine if you’re trustworthy or not. And if he has been burned by friends and exes in the past, it could be hard for him to trust anyone else moving forward.
