You can tell when a man is truly in love. Most of the time it is written all over his face.
Sure, men aren’t the best at expressing their emotions in words but their actions speak much more than words would anyway. Most of us prefer action over words as it is, I know that to be especially true for myself. When we are in true love it is like nothing else.
If you are for some reason questioning the motives of the special guy in your life look for the following signs to see whether or not he’s really feeling the way you think he is:
