7 Signs of True Love From a Man

7 signs of true love from a man

The adage “actions speak louder than words” rings truer than ever when it comes to dating and relationships. Anyone can tell you what you want to hear – but only someone who actually MEANS what they say will make sure their actions back up their words.

 

The interesting thing about love is that we all communicate and receive it in our own unique ways. So tell me in the comments, which one of the true love signs means the most to YOU? Or if I missed one, what would you add to the list?

1. He includes you in every part of his life.

When a black man loves a black woman he wants to integrate her into his life and bring her around his family and friends. He wants them to love you, and for you to love them. He wants you to be an extension of him and include you in important events and milestones.

2. He tries to give more than he takes.

Real love is about giving and contributing to your partner’s life. A black man who loves you will give to you in the best ways he knows how. He will care for you, respect you, listen to you, and adore you. He won’t drain your energy or make you feel like giving is only one-sided. Great relationships are not about giving and take, they are about to give and give.

3. It’s not ‘me‘, it’s ‘us‘.

You were two separate individuals, but now we are a combined team. When a black man is in love he will see you as inseparable. This includes when RSVPing to an event, talking about a vacation or looking into the future,  where he goes, he wants you to go and vice versa.  It is no longer ‘my life,’ it is ‘our life.’

4. He sees YOU.

How many people really see you? How many people hear what you’re not saying?

A black man who loves you will pay such close attention to you that he will notice details that nobody else does. He will learn what makes you happy, sad, angry, or ecstatic. This awareness will help him love you more. It shows him all the small details he loves about you.

5. Your happiness is his happiness.

When a black man truly loves you he shares in your happiness and lends you his strength to ease your pain. Being in love is about being teammates who always supporting each other. A black man in love will want to see you happy and work to make it happen.

6. He’s there for you even on the rainy days.

Life is not always sunshine and rainbows,… it can be difficult. Any man can stay next to you on the sunny days, but the true test of his love will be during the rainy days.  Does he hold the “umbrella” over you?

There will be challenges, losses, and failures, but the right black man will stand in front of you when you need protection, behind you when you need support, and next to you when you need a partner.

7. You will know.

When a man truly loves and cares about you he will make it known. He will put in the effort consistently, and back up his words with actions. You won’t have to wonder about his feelings, he will tell you and show you.
