In today’s world where cheating on somebody has become easier than ever before, more and more people start questioning their relationship and doubting their other half.
Whether it is justified or not, it is certainly true that the internet has made it easier for people to develop new fresh love relationships towards virtually anybody which, in turn, makes it more prone to destroying existing relationships as well.
On top of that, given that love isn’t an exact science, it’s very easy to start doubting the relationship and become suspicious towards your lover.
Does your significant other truly love you? In this article, we’ll go through 29 signs of true love from a man that undoubtedly shows that his love is genuine and that he would do anything for you.
At the end of the article, we’ll also discuss 6 ways to make your man your ”love slave”.
Do you want to know how you can make the man of your choice crazy about you? CLICK HERE to get my guide.
1 – Never Tries To Hurt Your Feelings
As obvious as it may sound, someone who loves you will never even dare to think about hurting your feelings. In a sense, hurting your feelings would be like hurting himself; and no one likes to hurt themselves. He’s in a superior state of mind where your needs are his needs. In a way, we could say that he vanquished his natural egotistical instincts as a human being to better his relationship with you.
The nuance that needs to be made with that statement is that sometimes people like to hurt their significant other to satisfy their own ego. A person who truly likes you will never resort to doing such a thing.
People who are selfish in a relationship are those who prioritizes their own ego over the relationship; this is not true love.
2 – His Goal Is To Make You Happy
If he wants to make you happy more than anything to see you smile more, then it’s very likely he truly loves you.
Wanting someone to be happy doesn’t necessarily have to be communicated through words (”I want to make you happy”), as long as you can see he’s doing his best not only to fulfill his needs but yours as well.
As you’ll discover below in this article, your partner just might express his desire to make you happy with words depending on his love language.
Someone truly in love will get an insane amount of satisfaction just by contributing to their significant other’s life in some way. In a sense, making you happy would make him happy as well.
True love is when people step out of themselves and think about the betterment of the relationship, not the betterment of their own life.
3 – Takes Good Care Of Himself
I’m sure we all can think of someone in our lives that has had a good relationship with their lover at the beginning, but started changing midway and eventually stopped taking care of himself.
This usually happens because there is excitement and passion at the beginning of a relationship that wears off as time goes by. Then, there is the law of familiarity that kicks in. When that happens, people switch back to their old habits and this is the beginning of the end.
One of my favorite quotes when it comes to relationship is: ”If you do what you did in the beginning of a relationship, there won’t be an end.”
If he truly loves you, he will always take good care of himself because he knows you can stop loving him at any moment; and this is a thought he can’t stand.
4 – Values Your Opinion
If a man treasures you, he will treasure your opinion.
Did you ever witness couples that don’t value their significant other’s opinion? Love is about making one person more special in your life than anyone else; which thereby means that it makes their opinion very precious. Couples who fail to understand this principle usually struggle a lot in their relationship as there is a disconnect when they communicate.
What’s more, love is about acceptance and trust. If he truly loves you, he will give more credit to your words than those of anybody else.
5 – Does Not Judge You
A man truly in love will never judge his other half, especially for what they may say or do that doesn’t please them. Instead, they firmly believe that they know your soul and true intentions and don’t hold you accountable for it.
Even if you share different opinions on a given matter, he will never debate with you to try to prove that he’s right: instead, he understands that he does not know everything himself and that you might just be right.
As covered previously, a man who truly loves a woman will never want to hurt her anyway.. so he will never be judgemental.
6 – Protects You
Another clear sign of true love from a man is whether or not he’s being protective with you. As obvious as it may sound to want to protect what you cherish, I believe that it’s also a natural instinct for us men to want to protect our women.
It doesn’t necessarily have to be against big threats, protecting our women can even be as simple as taking good care of them.
On the contrary, if a man doesn’t truly care about his partner, he will never take the extra time and effort to protect her from even the simplest and smallest challenge or situation life might have to offer you, let alone the difficulties of life.
7 – Realizes When He’s Wrong
We all have our egos, and this is what makes this sign so important. It takes a tremendous amount of discipline and self-awareness to realize and recognize our own mistakes for the betterment of the relationship.
A man who truly loves his woman will always prioritize his relationship with her over satisfying his own ego by thinking he’s right all the time.
Unfortunately, a lot of people are too attached to their egos and don’t want to let go of it. As a result, they start becoming what destroys most relationships.
8 – Wants to spend as much time as possible with you
As we’ll talk about below, some people are more prone to wanting to spend more time with their loved one than others.
However, it doesn’t change the fact that if your partner loves you, he’ll want to be with you as much as possible. Note that it might differ from man to man, as some men might need to maintain a certain balance between being with you and being alone. As such, be careful when you assess this point.
In any case, there’s no reason to doubt he doesn’t want to spend time with you… unless he doesn’t return your phone calls anymore.
9 – You Are His Weakness
There is nothing harder for a man wanting to protect his woman than to not being able to. Being his weakness doesn’t necessarily mean that he will say ‘yes’ to anything you ask him. In fact, some people might experience this sense of weakness differently.
However, as strong as we, men, can be by ourselves, we are usually very sensitive and vulnerable when it comes to our women. After all, failure to protect them is failure to act on our instincts.
10 – Would Do Anything For You
The authenticity and extent of a man’s love for his woman can be measured by the actions he would be able to take for his woman’s sake. The saying ”actions speak louder than words” is certainly true in this scenario.
Keep in mind that ”would do anything for you” doesn’t necessarily mean that he would approve each one of your whims. Instead, it means that he would be willing to do whatever is necessary to ensure your safety and the well-being of your relationship with him.
11 – Proudly Shows That You’re His
Did you ever feel like shouting it to the rooftops after achieving or obtaining something perceived as valuable?
A man who loves you will never be ashamed of introducing you: instead, he would be more than happy to tell everyone around him about you! After all, no creator would ever be ashamed to exibit what they think is their masterpiece in public.
12 – Wants You To Be His Only
Jealousy and possessiveness are very interesting features of human beings.
First, there is no harm in feeling this way as it is natural. Human beings are rather selfish by nature. Second, although we all possess these traits, we certainly do not experience the same levels of jealousy or possessiveness. All men do not share the same need for their partner to be theirs only.
However, a man who truly loves a woman will always bear some kind of selfish thoughts when it comes to her.
After all, a relationship is a place for two people to give extra special attention to each other. Without this, the love relationship becomes a mere friendship. As such, we will always nurture some form of possessiveness towards our other half.
Keep in mind that there is healthy and unhealthy forms of jealousy and possessiveness. Although the latter is easier to discern (which usually stems from the subject’s lower-self), it doesn’t mean that just because your partner is not yelling at you each time you go out, he doesn’t want you to be his only. In fact, I’d rather be concerned about the quality of your relationship if such a thing happened.
13 – Values You More Than Anything Else
If your man ever mentionned something along those lines, or if he ever behaved in a way that made you feel that way, then you’re on the right track!
There is no right or wrong when it comes to values, each one of us have our own set of values which we value at different levels in different ways. However, a man truly in love would move moutains for the one he cherishes.
14 – You Have A Lot Of Influence On Him
A good indicator of whether or not your partner truly loves you is by measuring the extent of your influence on him.
The more we love someone, the more we tend to open our hearts to them. Conversely, the more we open our hearts to those we treasure, the more sensitive we become. As such, if you find yourself hurting your partner’s feelings a lot.. it might not be entirely your fault.
In fact, it might be a good sign of true love from your man. Someone who does not care about you or your opinion will never feel any kind of distress as to what you may say to him.
15 – Would Rather Be Happy Than Right
When arguing, we always tend to think that our own perspective is right and that the other person is wrong. In spite of the terrible impact it can have on their lives, some people have the bad habit of wanting to be always right. If they lose control, they feel overwhelmed. In short, it takes a tremendous amount of effort not only to realize that we may be wrong, but also to let it go and find another solution.
This makes it the perfect sign of true love you might be looking for from your man: is he always trying to be right even though it might hurt you? Does he admit that he sometimes makes mistakes?
A man truly in love will always prioritize his woman over his own ego. He’s never trying to prove her wrong, but to find solutions.
16 – Supports You
The worst feeling is probably when you don’t feel any kind of support whatsoever from the person whom you love the most. When the one we’ve chosen to spend the rest of our life with doesn’t trust us, why should we trust in ourselves?
Support is a really important factor when it comes to a healthy relationship: it’s about approval, confidence, trust and understand. It means to the other that ‘you are enough’. There is no way your man won’t support you if you are his most cherished treasure.
17 – Does His Best To Understand You Better
A lot of people fall into the trap of believing that their way of thinking is the right one and as a result aren’t flexible. Since a relationship is comprised of two people, if both parties don’t try to understand each other’s way of thinking and way of being better, it’s going to go wrong sooner or later.
The fact that your man is not self-centered and does his best to understand you better makes it a good sign of true love: he realizes that by understanding you better, it’s going to improve your relationship.
18 – He Does Not Take You For Granted
For most couples, the law of familiarity – which states that you become accustomed to whatever you spend too much time with – kicks in after some time and both parties eventually take each other for granted.
When that happens, lovers stop looking at each other in the same way, stop being playful with each other and even do things that they would have never done a few years ago. This is precisely what kills a lot of relationships.
A partner who loves you no matter what will never fall into that trap – even after 5, 10 or 20 years, he will still do his best to make you the happiest woman alive.
Again, I particularly like this quote from Tony Robbins: ”Do what you did in the beginning of a relationship and there won’t be an end.” Unfortunately, most people do the exact opposite and end up destroying their precious relationship.
This principle is about understanding that anything could go wrong at any time, and that he knows he could lose you due to a lot of reasons: you might leave him, pass away, stop loving him..
Appreciating each other is one of the most important lesson I’ve learned from successful couples.
19 – Will Believe In You When No One Does, even yourself
Does your partner believe in you and supports you no matter what? If the answer is yes, then there’s a true sign of love from your man right there!
It’s easy to start doubting in life, whether it be because of others or because of ourselves. It’s in these moments that we need support the most, and whose support is more important than the person you’ve chosen to spend the rest of your life with?
True love from a man is when he knows you better than anyone else – even yourself and as such knows your potential. Even if the whole world were to start doubting and turning its back on you, he would still believe in you because he knows what you’re truly capable of.
20 – Accepts your flaws
Let’s face it – we all have flaws. Nobody is perfect, and that’s what makes life exciting,isn’t it?
The fact that your partner willingly decided to cherish not only your good sides but also your bad ones is a very good indicator that you’re precious to him. It means that he accepted you as a whole, not only your good sides.
Although a partner truly in love might try to make you better, he will never force change upon you or even dare to threaten the relationship because of your lack of change. If he sets conditions for him to love you, it’s not true and unconditional love.
21 – Knows Your Soul And Will Never Hold You Accountable For What You May Say Or Do To Him
Love is about understanding your other half fully and loving them unconditionally no matter what. It means knowing their soul and what their intents are.
Sometimes, when life knocks us down, it happens that we feel frustrated, angry or even uncomfortable. When that happens, we might say or do things that aren’t truly ourselves and are just a reflection of the state we’re in in the moment.
One of the most powerful sign of true love from a man I could ever give you is that even in these moments, he doesn’t hold you accountable for anything you might say or do to him because he knows that you have pure intents with him and that you will never want to hurt him in any way.
22 – He’s Always Including You In His Future Plans
Is he often talking about or referring to his future with you?
When a man loves a woman from the bottom of his heart, he’ll always include her in his future plans. Whether it be 1 year, 5 years or even 10-20 years from now… he’ll never forget his most precious woman.
*Keep in mind that some people are more ”future-driven” than others. Some live life day-by-day, while others even live in the past – which I don’t recommend. If he doesn’t talk to you about his future with you, it might just be that he’s not thinking about the future but instead lives in the present moment.
23 – He Can’t Stop Looking At You
As they say, :”Eyes are the window to the soul”. A man who can’t stop looking at you in the eyes is a man who seeks not a physical, but spiritual connection with you.
Gazing into each other’s eyes is more powerful than you might think, as studies have shown that you can make two people fall in love with each other just by having them look at each other in the eyes.
Eyes convey a lot of feelings and emotions, which makes it a powerful weapon. If you find your man using it regularly, then it’s very likely that he’s looking for some kind of spiritural connection with you, which is what a person deeply in love tends to be looking for.
24 – He’s Present With You All The Time
I’m sure we all have been at least once with somebody physically, but not emotionally. It means being physically sitting or standing next to somebody, but not being focused on them. When such a thing happened, did you feel any kind of connection? Of course not, it would be like putting two dolls next to each other and expecting them to feel connected.
A man who is truly commited to you will always schedule some time to be present with you – it means not just being there physically, but emotionally too as he wants to connect with you on a deeper level. He will want to look at you and hear every little things you have to say.
25 – He Always Expresses His Love To You
Needless to say, the best sign of true love a man could ever give you is by expressing is love to you !
However, did you know that a lot of couples end up breaking up because of a lack of understanding of each other’s needs ? The fact of the matter is that expressing love means different things to different people.
For instance, have you ever heard the saying ”action speaks louder than words” ? This saying is used by people who believes that expressing love through words means nothing. Unfortunately, it may happen that the other person happen to express his love through words, which will result in a breakup caused by a lack of communication.
If your man truly loves you, then he will always express his love to you based on his representation of what love is. Below are the 5 love languages which is a concept I’ve learned from the book ”The 5 Love Languages” by Gary Chapman.
1 – Words of Affirmation
If your partner keeps expressing his love through words, then chances are he values this love language a lot.
Using words doesn’t necessarily mean that he restrains his vocabulary to ”I love you”, it might be more subtle such as ”You’re so beautiful”, ”I miss you so much.” or even ”I really appreciate that you helped me out.”
For people living primarily in that love language, love can be felt strongly using words.
2 – Gifts
Sometimes words don’t mean anything to certain people, so he might treasure gifts ! Does he make you a lot of gifts ? Conversely, how does he feel when you make him a gift ? Keep in mind that we always tend to project our own values onto other people ; it means that way he’s expressing his love to you is the way he’d like you to treat him.
People whose love language is gifts tend to view them as proof of their loved one’s love.
3 – Acts Of Service
Have you ever talked with somebody who’s purpose in life is to remind you of all the things they did for you ? In a love setting, it means that it’s their way of expressing love to you.
Unfortunately, most couples never realize this and it always becomes the reason to start a fight.
People whose primarily love language is ‘Acts Of Service’ love to do others favor as proof of their love. It’s not necessarily about changing one person’s life through one favor, but also about small things in their daily-life, such as taking out the garbage, or changing the baby’s diaper.
4 – Quality Time
Do you know the difference between spending time with your loved one, and spending quality time with them ?
It can be summarized in two words : undivided attention.
When you’re sitting on the couch with your other half watchin TV, are you giving them your undivided attention ? No, you’re not. What you’re doing is giving the TV your undivided attention.
If you find your man wanting to spend a lot of ”special time” with you and you alone, then you have a pretty strong sign of true love from him.
Special time, or quality time, is about focusing on each other and nothing else.
5 – Physical Touch
It might be the most obvious when it comes to love. After all, isn’t kissing and hugging a proof of love in itself?
For some people, physical touch – whether that is kissing, or even feeling that loving presence besides you – is the most important of all.
Is your man often looking for your warmth? It might be his way of expressing his love to you.
Here’s a little summary of what the 5 love languages are about :
1 – Words Of Affirmations: your partner gives you some love through his words
2 – Gifts: your partner gives you some love through his gifts
3 – Acts of Service: your partner gives you some love by doing things for you
4 – Quality Time: your partner gives you some love by being fully present with you
5 – Physical Touch: your partner gives you some love by touching you

26 – He’s Being A Giver With You, Not A Taker
One of the wisest words I’ve ever heard regarding relationships are: ”A relationship is a place to give, not to take.” Unfortunately, the majority of people enter in a relationship with the wrong mindset, in order to get something from it, instead of adding value.
Did you ever encounter takers in your life? How did you feel?
The truth is, no one really wants to deal with that kind of person. After all, why bother investing time, money or energy in a relationship from which you’ll not only gain nothing, but most likely will lose something from?
True love is about wanting to give unconditional love no matter what happens, even if your partner doesn’t deserve it. As such, if your man truly love you, he will do anything in his power to add value to your life, instead of trying to get something out of you.
27 – He Knows Your Love Language -Consciously Or Unconsciously
When you’ve been in a relationship with somebody that you love from the bottom of your heart for some time, you will always know them very well – their habits, choice of words, body language.. and love language !
Of course, the ”5 love languages” are just a concept coming from a book. It’s virtually impossible to come up with the exact same idea without reading the book. However, if you’ve witnessed that your partner is doing his best to please you by adjusting his behavior.. he probably is figuring out your love language – unconsciously, most likely.
28 – He’s Being Vulnerable With You
It’s always hard to open up to someone because of the fear of being judged. That’s why it’s a very powerful indicator as to how much he appreciates and trusts you. There’s no way he would open up to someone he doesn’t like nor trust.
By being vulnerable, he accepts that you might hurt him for the betterment of the relationship.
29 – He Loves You Even When You Don’t Deserve it.
The most powerful concept I learned from the happiest couples I’ve studied is just to love unconditionnally. It means loving the other no matter what, even if they don’t deserve it. As I said earlier, a relationship should be a place to give and not to take.
If you found your man doing his best to love you even when you’re being harsh on him or capricious, you have a very clear sign of true love from him.
There you have it, 29 signs of true love from a man !
What if your boyfriend doesn’t embody all those traits ? Does that mean he doesn’t love you to death ? Of course not. Keep in mind that everybody is different and that we all think and behave in different ways. However, I’m positive that if your partner truly loves you, then he’d behave in a way that’s congruent with the majority of what I’ve shared with you.
6 Ways To Make Him Your Love Slave
Now that you’ve read the 29 signs of true love and know if your man truly loves you or not, it’s time to learn how to make him fall more in love with you – how to make him your love slave.
A love slave is someone that loves you and have their needs met so much that they can’t stop looking at and thinking about you.
1) Communicate Your Love More Effectively
Interestingly, this means different things to different people. When you read this, you may have thought ‘’Oh, I need to tell him I love him more’’ or ‘’I need to spend more time with him.’’
When it comes to communication in love, there is no right or wrong answer. It all depends on your partner and how they want you to communicate your love.
The challenge is that most people communicate their love by using the way through which they’d want to receive love. Simply said, if words matter a lot to you, you will have the tendency to express your love with words. However, what if it doesn’t match your man’s expectations?
It’s critical that you know how your man feels loved – is it through words, gifts, quality time or acts of service?
2) Invest More In The Relationship
Sometimes, working IN the relationship is not enough, we must work ON the relationship – do you have systems and rituals in place that can make sure that your relationship is thriving?
Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results. Are you guilty of that?
Invest more time in your relationship – not only in the relationship and having a good time with your partner, but also on it and improve it from a higher perspective. It can also mean investing money – hiring coaches or enrolling into courses that might be able to teach you a lot more about relationships.
3) Give More
Human beings hate takers, but they love givers. A challenge that a lot of people in a relationship face is that they expect to get something from their partner.
In a relationship, there are mainly 3 levels of love:
1 – Selfish Love
The worst and lowest form of love: it’s all about them and how they can get and take advantage of their partner. It doesn’t make them a bad person, but it’s extremely toxic for the relationship.
2 – Give & Take Love
This level of love is similar to trading: I give you this, so you give me that. Usually, couples unconsciously choose this one, which is why many couples complain the following, ‘’I gave them everything but they never did anything for me!’’
Again, not the level of love you want to be in. Love can be much stronger than this, as shown in third level of love below.
3 – Unconditional Love
Unconditional love is the highest form of love. It means that you’ll keep loving them no matter what happens, as a parent/child relationship.
In this case, you’re not trying to get anything but just to give because you want to contribute to your soulmate as much as possible. Their needs are your needs and you get tremendous pleasure just by loving them.
4) Put Your Lover First
The cardinal rule you must never violate: always put your lover and their needs above your own. It can be a challenge, but it’s definitely worth it.
Who would want to leave a relationship filled with love, passion and contribution?
It doesn’t mean that you should make your world revolve around them. In fact, it can be quite repelling both for men and women if one person can’t live without the other.
Instead, make them the highest priority in your life. It’s totally okay if you temporarily decide to prioritize another area of your life such as your business or career.. but let them know so that they don’t feel left behind.
5) Develop More Presence
You’d be shocked to know how many people don’t know what it means to spend quality time with somebody. It’s not about sitting on the couch watching TV. In this scenario, you’re giving presence to the TV, not your partner!
Schedule in some time with your man where you give him your full, undivided attention.
6) Use Your Feminine/Masculine Energy
Regardless of our gender, we all have two types of energy within us: a masculine energy and a feminine energy. We can access both energies anytime, but we primarily live using one energy that we’ve conditioned throughout the years.
The masculine energy is all about working, making decisions, being focused and setting goals. On the other hand, the feminine energy is more about playfulness, being soft and funny.
This concept of masculine/feminine energy is similar to two magnets: opposite charges attract each other.
First, you need to find out what energy your man lives in most of the time. Is he more masculine or more feminine?
Then, make sure that each time you’re around him and spending time together.. you’re using a different energy. If he’s masculine, then bring out your feminine. If he’s feminine, then bring out your masculine.
Here are easy ways to bring out more these two energies into your life:
Masculine – exercise, work, plan your future, do sports, hang out with masculine men or women
Feminine – dance, sing, make-up, be cheerful, hang out with feminine men or women
