The world has changed since the days of adorning something old, finding an engagement ring, or saying “I love you” with a simple peck on the cheek.

Today’s modern couples have taken that idea and run with it, to new heights of emotionality and complexity.

If you have been dating this guy and don’t know his true feelings, here are 10 signs that he really meant that “I love you.”

Let’s get it started!

1) Words are not enough

When people say they love you without any accompanying actions or gestures, those words don’t usually mean what they seem like they do.

If this guy is telling you that he loves you without doing anything to show you he means it, take a step back and look at the big picture.

Is what he says in line with his actions?

This means that if he says, “I love you,” but then acts like it’s no big deal, or gives you the cold shoulder when you say something sweet to him, telltale signs are emerging.

It’s hard for someone to say “I love you,” and then act like it’s no big deal when your words make their heart skip a beat.

If this man really means his “I love you”, his actions will back up his words – he is doing everything he can to prove to you his sincerity.

2) He makes you feel special

This is not a trivial matter.

A person who truly loves you will make your life feel more special than it did before, even though the relationship is in its early stages. You’ll feel confident that he loves you because he likes you and wants your company.

This boyfriend will ask about your day and make you feel like a priority in life – as opposed to the other way around.

He’ll compliment you every chance he gets, try to make time for you, ask about you, and tell everyone what a special person he has in his life.

And the best part?

He won’t grow tired of showing you how much you mean to him.

So try to notice these special efforts he does for you – this man is saying he loves you, but are his actions consistent with the words?

3) He wants to be with you, face-to-face

In today’s world, many people use technology as a way to connect, but sometimes this works in favor of walls being built and true intimacy not being reached.

If this is the case with your new guy and his “I love you,” he may be feeling it deep down somewhere inside, but not showing those feelings on the outside.

A man who says, “I love you,” and means it is not afraid to see your face when he tells you, face-to-face, he needs to say it in person, so he can look you in the eye and be honest with himself and you too.

If he has to text or call you when he’s trying to prove his love for you, chances are he has something to hide.

Real love is not hidden behind technology; real love happens at the moment and is felt by the heart.

If he wants to spend time with you physically, he’s letting you in on the full truth – that he loves you.

4) A real love advisor confirms it

Saying “I love you” and really meaning it is one thing when it’s from the heart.

Families, friends and other close people can see things we can’t when it comes to our significant other. They are usually the first to tell us if someone’s true feelings match with what they say since they have an impartial and unbiased perspective.

But could you get even more clarity by speaking to a gifted love advisor?

Clearly, you have to find someone you can trust. With so many fake experts out there, it’s important to have a pretty good BS detector.

After going through a messy break up, I recently tried Psychic Source. They provided me with the guidance I needed in life, including who I am meant to be with.

I was actually blown away by how kind, caring, and genuinely helpful they were.

A gifted advisor can not only tell you if he really meant his words, but they can also reveal all your love possibilities.

5) He’s nice to everyone including your friends and family

No matter the situation or circumstance, if this guy is hanging out with his friends or your family members, he treats everyone with respect. You should expect nothing less from a guy who loves you and is saying “I love you.”

He expresses kindness in new and different ways with everybody – this means that he has grown emotionally as a result of being in your life.

This man’s parents and closest friends should also approve of you as he wants their blessing prior to doing anything permanent with his life. It’s a possible sign that he likes you and wants to marry you down the line, so he is already doing what he needs to in order to make this relationship work.

You see, if a man really loves you, he will treat others with respect and kindness. The people that you care about and love will also feel how genuine his feelings are for you.

This is definitely a sign that he is ready to show to the world that he wants to commit to you.

6) He’s committed through good times and bad

When a man is truly falling in love with a woman, his feelings don’t have anything to do with external factors being ideal. Leading up to this moment, he had been committed to the relationship and never pulled away at the first sign of trouble.

He proved that he is loyal to you when facing hardship – and even when it seems like things are unrealistically wonderful in your life, sometimes people make mistakes.

But a man who is willing to stick by your side through hard times has clearly demonstrated his commitment to you and love for you. He’s ready to take on the long-term commitment of a relationship with someone whom he feels compatible with, understands and trusts.

Tough times in a relationship are one of life’s greatest teachers.

Saying “I love you” without thinking it through can cause attraction to wear off and make people feel uncomfortable. Yet, committing to you when times are good and bad is a sign of commitment, which is a big way to show that he truly loves you.

7) He’ll invest time, energy and money

If a man truly loves you, he’ll want to do things that make you happy.

It’s in his nature.

This man is going to put in the effort and make some changes so that this relationship works out.

These little things can mean a lot – 100% love.

He will invest his time for you – even if that means he has to cut back on his time with his friends and family for a little bit.

He will always have the energy for you – and won’t get tired of you. He will do whatever it takes to make it work because he loves you and wants to be with you.

He’s going to invest his money for you – he’s not cheap with it and wants you to feel like you are being treated as a queen. He also knows there is always enough of what he has to go around, because of the type of person he is.

If this man truly loves you, he is not going to do some things that take your focus off of him and onto other random things in life. He will show his love with his actions, while respecting your love for the two of you as a couple as well.

8) He’s honest, up-front and does not play mind games

If this guy is telling you that he loves you and wants to be completely open about it with the two of you, it’s safe to assume his feelings are genuine.

To make my point clearer:  your relationship will always remain 100% honest and transparent. If something is bothering him or bothering you, he will tell you without hesitation. He will also respect your personal space and your emotions.

He is not going to hide anything from you – he doesn’t want you to find out the hard way or later on in the relationship. He’s a man who is trying to be totally real and consistent with his feelings, and this relationship is one of authenticity and honesty.

Earlier, I mentioned how helpful the advisors at Psychic Source were when I was facing relationship troubles.

9) He sees a future with you

When someone says they love you and means it, they feel a sense of permanence in your relationship. They see the potential for what the two of you could be or do together in the future.

A man who truly loves you will tell his friends about all the unique things about you and how special he finds your relationship to be when he’s around them. A man who loves you will be thinking about ways that he can spend time with you without spending his entire day with you.

He will think about little things that he can do when he’s not with you and show that it’s good for the two of you to have time apart so he can get the work done that needs to get done.

He is a man who wants to be with you and enjoy life with you. He wants to build a future for the two of you, and this means that he has faith in your relationship as well.

Isn’t it a wonderful feeling to know that he wants to build a world of love and fun with you, and that will make him feel like the luckiest guy in the world.

10) You have a connection on a deep level

The key to really knowing if someone loves you is being able to feel the love and energy in your heart.

You don’t have to see him or hear from him all day; you just need to feel the love he has for you and believe in it yourself. You feel the connection from him when you look into his eyes and the connection is alive in your soul. You may even feel it when he touches you, hugs you or kisses you.

If this man really loves you, it’s not just a fluke or something that came from a period of time that he was around.

He knows how to make a woman feel special and connected to him on a deep level, which only comes from someone who truly loves you for who you truly are.

And the truth is, he will protect and cherish every part of your being – body, mind, emotions and soul. He will also try to make you feel safe and happy, which is the best feeling in the world.

So if a guy says he loves you and really means it, this alone should tell you that there is still room for you to fall in love with him.

He swears by your love for him because he knows that it’s real – there’s no reason for him to let you go or be with someone else who doesn’t feel the same about him as you do.
