Don’t assume that your boyfriend isn’t attached to you
Some men aren’t exactly in touch with their feelings. That’s why they won’t utter those three little words as much as we’d like them to. They show their emotions in a different way. Don’t assume that your boyfriend isn’t attached to you, just because he has a hard time expressing his emotions. Here are a few different ways that some men show affection:
1. Introduces You to His Friends
He wouldn’t introduce you to his friends and family members, unless he was serious about you. So if you’ve become a part of his friend group, it’s a good sign. It’s an even better sign if he does little things, like calls you by pet names and gives you pecks on the cheek, while he’s with his friends. Some boys make fun of each other for those types of gestures, so if he’s willing to engage in a tiny bit of PDA in front of them, it’s a big deal.
2. Holds Your Hand
If he holds your hand while you walk around the mall together, it proves that he’s proud of you. He wants everyone to see that he’s with the sexiest girl in the store. That’s his own way of showing affection. If he loves to show you off, then it means that he cares about you and wants every other boy to keep their distance.
3. Gives Thoughtful Gift
He doesn’t have to buy you anything big for your birthday. He could give you a random card and some candy, and be done with it. So if he writes you a love letter and buys you a thoughtful gift that he obviously put a lot of thought into, then it means he really cares about you. Most men wouldn’t go through all of that trouble, unless they were crazy about you.
4. Does Favors for You
If he only wanted you for sex, then he wouldn’t answer your texts when you tried to talk to him about any other topic. So if he’s ready and willing to do favors for you, like help you clean your room and ace a test, then he likes you a lot. He’s showing affection by helping you out in the only ways he knows how.
5. Asks for Your Advice
Most men don’t like to ask for advice. Why do you think there’s that stereotype about never asking for directions? That means that your man must really like you if he asks you for advice. It proves that he values your opinion.
6. The Way He Looks at You
You can figure out how he feels about you, just by looking at him. His eyes will give his emotions away. It’s a hard thing to explain what a man looks like when he’s staring at the woman he loves, but it’ll be easy to see.
7. Puts You before Himself
Most of us are pretty selfish. It’s human nature. That’s why it’s a huge deal if your man decides to put you before himself. It means that he’s crazy about you. It’s the biggest way for him to show affection.
Your boyfriend doesn’t have to tell you he loves you constantly in order to show you that he cares.
