15 Subtle Ways Guys Say 'I Love You'
By Samantha Escobar for YourTango
Has your guy been fairly silent in the four-letter-word department, and you're trying to figure out how he feels? Hey, sometimes, it's hard for people. Not everyone is comfortable vocalizing their feelings—whether it's a fear of rejection or they're just scared to say "I love you" for the first time. Here are some subtle, silent signs that may give it away:
1. He Kisses You Passionately…and Lingers
Who doesn't love a lengthy kiss? When he's continuously initiating these and you can feel the passion each time he does, chances are he's more than just a little excited to be around you.
2. He Tells You That His Friends Love You
If all his buddies are starting to warm up to you and truly seem to enjoy your company, it could be because they know how happy you're making their friend—an obvious sign that he's really into you.
3. He Listens Intently
While he might not express the extent of his feelings about your relationship, the fact that he listens closely when you're talking is incredibly significant. He may lean in closer when you discuss important topics or nod when you say something poignant. Both behaviors reveal how much your words—and you—mean to him.
4. Calling (Or Texting) For No Reason
Not all people do this when in love, so don't take it personally if he doesn't. That said, dialing your number just because is a sign that he's thinking of you throughout the day. Meaning? He really cares.
5. He Sticks Around
Does he like to do activities together for no reason? For example, rather than just wanting to meet up at a dinner party, he'd rather go grocery shopping with you beforehand so the two of you can make a dish to bring together? Doing household errands shows he's interested in being closer than just casual daters or sex partners.
