It’s common knowledge at this point that men aren’t necessarily going to be as open and as honest about their feelings as women are. And because of that, it can often be very challenging to find out just where a man stands in his relationship with you.
You can’t tell if he’s just happy to have you around or if he sees that there’s some serious potential for the both of you. And you need that security before you can allow yourself to dive deeper into the relationship. You don’t want to be investing too much of yourself into something that isn’t real after all. You don’t want to get all hyped up about a relationship that is going to turn out one-sided.
And so you start to grow desperate because you really want to know how he feels about you before you go on in the relationship. But that’s just the problem; he’s not saying anything to give you any hints about how he feels.
But you’re approaching things all wrong. Men aren’t very vocal about how they feel because that’s not how they like to communicate. Men usually like to communicate with their actions and gestures. So if you want to know how your man feels about you, you just have to be able to take a look at how they are whenever they’re with you. Learn to read the subtext of their actions. Learn to understand the emotional weight of their gestures.
And if you’re feeling lost in that regard, then enlighten yourself with this article. You just need to make yourself aware of the signs that your man is actually emotionally invested in you. So if you find that the things that are listed on here actually apply to your man and your relationship, then you can breathe easily. You have a man who is ready to commit to you. You have a man who considers you to be the one for him.
