Sometimes it’s difficult to tell whether a man loves you or not, especially when he is not making his feelings known or talking about them to you. However, there are ways you can discern, even without words, if he really loves you and has strong feelings for you. Pay more than usual attention to these things, and you will discover if he really loves you.
1. He will keep staring at you
Eye contact is one of the easiest ways to tell when a person loves you—or at least if he is into you.
Men, like women, are likely to look into the eyes of the people they love whenever the opportunity presents itself.
The stares he gives you can either be sharp or sustained. Some men are not bold enough to hold steady gazes for a long time; these men only stare for a short period.
But you will often be able to tell that it goes beyond just a look.
2. He puts you up as his display photo
Putting up a woman’s picture as their display photo is an absolute show of love for most men.
You can be assured he loves you if you are his display picture. This means he is proud of you and thinks you are attractive enough to be shown to his friends on social media.
Men only show off women they have remarkable love for and interest in.
If you want to know for sure, you can tease him about the profile picture. If he says something along the lines of: “Well, I just thought it looked really beautiful.” Then you can smile. He loves you.

3. He always wants to be around you
Time spent together almost always translates to “affection shared.” We only spend time with people we genuinely love—well, except there is a clause attached.
If a man loves you, he is always going to crave some time with you. The slightest opportunity to be around you will be taken wholeheartedly, anytime.
You know he wants to spend time with you when he often schedules dates and when he is never too busy when you ask to have him around.
In my experience, overly busy men (men who say they are too busy to meet up)may not exactly love you. And even if they do, this love may not be enough to take things any further.
4. He apologizes when he sees you are angry
A man who loves you will definitely be attentive to your feelings. This means he will be able to detect the slightest changes in your mood. The moment you get upset, he will be able to tell that he has stepped on a nerve. The apologies will come fast.
Men who are in love don’t want to see their woman angry for extended periods. They want the best moods out of these women. So, apologies won’t be an issue.

5. He laughs even when your jokes are not funny
We usually know when our own jokes aren’t that funny. You will be able to tell if a man’s laughter in response to your joke is a bit exaggerated.
A man who loves you will be one to laugh at your jokes even when they are not so funny.
He is trying to make you feel comfortable by doing this. You should laugh as well.
6. He gets in touch with you at all times
When a guy contacts you regularly without being asked, it shows he really loves you and that you’re always on his mind and very important to him. Does he calls you for no reason? or he only talks to you when you send him a text? A guy doesn’t just contact any random girl for no reason except that girl occupies a special place in his heart.
7. He will seek physical contact
When a man continually seeks physical contact, it is clear evidence of his affection for you. If he doesn’t like you, he wouldn’t want to be around you and won’t try to make physical contact with you.
8. He gets nervous around you
If he is nervous around you, it could mean that he really loves you, especially if that only happens when he’s around you and he shows other signs of attraction around you. Nervousness sometimes is one way our minds tell us someone is special to us. It’s also when we feel a need to protect and hold on to someone worth keeping close to our hearts.

9. He becomes jealous when you talk to your male friends
Does he seem uneasy or insecure when you talk to your male friends? When you meet up with your male friends, does he feel this way too? If your answer is yes to these questions, then he is probably afraid of losing you to someone else, and he wants your undivided attention all to himself. Thus, this goes to show that he really loves you.
10. He will drop everything when you need him
Whenever you need him, whether, for something important or not, he’s there, he doesn’t try to find an excuse for not coming. He doesn’t want you to be worried. All he wants is for you to be happy and that you get the help you need. This is one thing a man does when he really loves a woman.
