Being comfortable in your relationship is a good thing, but there’s a thin line between comfort and complacency. You’re pretty sure your boyfriend loves you, but does he appreciate you and feel lucky to have you? He definitely should.  Here are 10 signs he knows he’s got it good and feels like he’s hit the jackpot.

  1. He regularly talks about your future. A man who knows he’s lucky to have you doesn’t want you for just now, he wants you forever. He’s not afraid to plan ahead because your relationship is actually going somewhere. You’re way too good for something casual and he knows it. That’s why he’s thinking about the future — he’s serious about making things work with the girl of his dreams.
  2. You don’t ever doubt his love. When a man really loves you, you don’t have to question if his love is true. You’re not having a constant inner struggle with whether or not his love is real. Your confidence in your relationship doesn’t waiver, because if he feels lucky he’s not afraid to show it.
  3. He’s never been afraid of commitment. At least not with you. He never backs away from taking the next step in your relationship, whatever that happens to be. He’s all in, and that’s the way it should be. He knows what a catch you are and would never put himself in a position to lose you. You’re everything he wants in one person, so why wouldn’t he want to lock things down?
  4. He can’t imagine his life without you. He wonders out loud where he would be without you because he’s realized that his life without you in it isn’t an option. It’s not that he’d die without you, but you definitely keep his head on straight. He appreciates everything you do for him because you’re his partner and he knows he couldn’t live this amazing life alone.
  5. He brags to his friends about his good fortune in love. If a guy feels lucky to have you, he won’t be afraid to tell you that — or anyone else who will listen. While other lesser men might hide your relationship, a guy who knows how good he’s got it can’t wait to show you off. He’s proud of the fact that he can call you his girlfriend and he’s going to brag about you to all his friends and family.
  6. He never forgets your special days. Birthdays and anniversaries are as important to him as they are to you because without those days, you wouldn’t be together. He’s so grateful you were put on this earth and even more grateful that he had the chance to meet you and ultimately fall madly in love with you. He doesn’t forget your special days because they’re special to him too.
  7. He says you’re his best friend. Your relationship isn’t just about sex or even romance. It’s rooted in something deeper — friendship. You’re more to him than just a girlfriend; you’re his very best friend. You’re partners in every sense of the word and you’re the person who gets him through even his darkest of days. When he tells you you’re his best friend, he’s not just feeling lucky — he’s feeling head over Nikes in love with you.
  8. He finds you beautiful no matter what. Whether you’re all dolled up or you’re just rolling out of bed, he’s always there to remind you how beautiful you are. You might think he’s nuts when you see the bags under your eyes and your hair in a frizzy mess, but you know despite being nuts, his words are true. No matter what, you’re beautiful to him, and he can’t help but gaze in awe at the girl he’s so lucky to have.
  9. He can’t believe he found you. You know the fear you had that you would end up alone? Well, guys have that too. Plenty of men want to settle down just as badly as many women do — as long as it’s with the right person. So when he finally finds you, his Mrs. Right, he’s not just happy — he’s shocked and grateful because he just won life’s greatest lottery.
  10. He misses you when you’re away. Any healthy relationship needs its space, but that doesn’t mean you can’t miss each other when you’re apart. In fact, missing each other is healthy. When you’re gone, he feels like something is missing — something that makes him happy, something that makes life easier. Missing you is the best way he can show he knows he’s lucky to have you because even after years of being together, he longs for you when you’re away.
