20 Effortless Ways How Men Show Love For The Women In Their Lives

Women are more expressive than men in love. Sure, there are men who know how to be romantic, but they in turn can find it difficult to express themselves when in front of that special person. The truth is, men express love for beloved ones in their own little ways that can easily go unnoticed if you don’t realize it. Ladies, when men want to show you they love you, no matter how big or small they make it, rest assured that it’s special and it’s all about you. Here are just some of the ways how men show love for their women:

1. Actions speak louder than words

Men might not say I love you on a daily basis, but they do show their love by what they do. Making you your favorite breakfast, fixing your creaking cupboard door, helping you out with dinner and dishes, or recording your favorite TV shows. It’s their way of saying, ‘Look, I know I don’t say it often, but this is my way of saying I love you.’

2. They go the extra mile

They will always want to be good enough for you. They will make an effort to dress better, keep in shape or diet better, or even try on your favorite cologne even if they don’t like it so much. Your choice does matter. The way you look at them is very important to them; they want to be your pride and joy.

3. What can I do better?

If they ask you this question, they want to be a better person for you. Whether it’s emotionally or physically, it shows that your happiness and fulfilment is a top priority for them in the relationship. They are willing to try new things and are open to your needs.

4. My ears are all yours, my dear

So men might not remember every single detail when it comes to birthdays or all your best friends’ names or your favourite brand of whatever, but when you really want someone to listen, they promise to lend you their ears. They try and absorb everything you have to say. It’s their way of saying you mean the world to them, and they listen as much as they can and more, just for you!

5. Shut up, don’t say anything

Sometimes you ladies have a bad day and take out the frustration on us. But men take it, let you vent, keeping calm and quiet. They will understand but it’s only because they love you and want to know what really is bothering you.

6. I just called to say…

Well, if I said it was just to say I love you it would be such a cliché, but isn’t love the biggest cliché of them all? In all honesty, men do like to keep in touch and just ask how is your day going? Or I hope you’ve eaten something. They don’t need a reason to talk, it’s just their small way of letting you know they are thinking of you.

7. Thoughtful gifts and words

I’m not talking about just picking up flowers or gifts for special occasions. Men like to present you with something that you love or have been craving for. It could be something as simple as a day at the spa or a special memory painted just for you, or sometimes they would go to great lengths to make dinner. It’s their humble way of saying thank you for being you. There is no right or wrong way, it’s the thought that counts. This is just one of the ways how men show love for the women in their lives.

8. To see that smile on your face

We all make compromises during our day some way or the other. The difference is when it comes to you; men want to do it for you. In your happiness, they find theirs. They might not always be perfect, but they sure try!

9. The smile

And whether you are right next to them or at the other end of the room or even via text, you know when they smile… it is just for you. You know you can feel it!

10. Honey, I need your help with something

Men will ask you for your opinion or help when in a conundrum. That’s their way of saying that your presence and opinions mean a lot to them.

It’s a given of life that all of us have to take our falls alone sometimes. But the men in your life will always be in your corner to support you, take care of you, protect you, advise you, and also to tell you when you are wrong. They will not leave your side, they will always try and be your Clark Kent and Superman – all rolled into one.

12. We always close our eyes when we kiss you

Most men who are in love don’t even realize when they do this, but it’s a proven way that shows that they love and adore you. Also, they smile right after. Look out for it next time!

13. Physical contact

Men try to always be in close proximity to you. Whether it’s just a brush of the arm, holding your hand, an arm around your waist, or even pushing your hair behind your ear, physical contact is a sign of showing that they can’t be too far away from you.                                                                                       

14. It’s our thing

Sometimes men find love very overwhelming, and in order to express it, they might use a sign. This could be a gesture, word, phrase, lyric, or a wink, but they will have something that’s exclusive just for the two of you – your little secret.

15. Honor, respect, and humility

He will always honor you by being your shield, respect you by being your army, and be humbled in your love. Sounds cheesy, but these are the three pillars of any strong relationship. Like a blind person can see love, a deaf person can hear the heart, and a dumb person can speak of love, men will make you feel it in their own way.

16. I’m sorry

We all make mistakes; but if they are truly in love, their pride will come in second to the love they have for you. A sure sign they care immensely for you is that they acknowledge their mistakes, while being open about how they feel about what transpired, then try to rectify things for the good of the both of you.

17. How lucky am I!

Men love to show you off! Whether at a party or walking through a mall, they will always love to do things next to you, be it grocery shopping or going bowling. To have you by their side is not a conquest, it’s a way of saying I can’t believe I’m so lucky to be yours!

18. I’d like you to meet my…

Whoever is closest to them, be it their friends, family, or even a beloved pet. In doing so, they are letting you know that you are entering a zone very few have treaded, my dear, and you are special.

19. You don’t need to say it

They will just look at you and know what you need, or hear your voice and know the right thing to say. They might not always get it right. Sometimes it might be a foot massage instead of a back massage, or a joke instead of an I love you, but you can guide them to the right spot. They might not always be spot on, but for you they are always trying.

These are all the ways how men show love for the women in their lives.
