Sometimes guys can be a bit hard to read. They have lots of different ways and levels of showing affection. Grand romantic gestures are great, but what about the little, day-to-day stuff? He might be showing you how he feels about you and you might not even notice. Here are 11 little things he does that mean he cares a lot.
He pays you random acts of kindness. I need to make my bed before I start the day—I can’t stand getting into an unmade bed at night. Sometimes when I step out of the room in the morning, my boyfriend will do it for me. He couldn’t care less if it’s made or not but he knows that’s how I like it. When a guy puts in small efforts like this, it means he’s very thoughtful and considerate. He’s doing it just because he knows it makes your day a little easier, and that’s a true sign of caring.
He texts you just to say hi throughout the day. I love getting texts from my boyfriend when I’m at work. It makes me smile and brightens my mood. If he texts you during the day, especially when you know he tends to be pretty busy at work, that means you’re something special. You’re not just there for late night comfort conversation or the 2 a.m. booty call. It means he’s thinking about you and can’t resist reaching out.
He remembers little details. If a guy can remember something from a story you told him last week or details about your friends or family, he’s a keeper. A man with a memory is a rare thing. This means that he was truly listening when you spoke to him, that he cares about whatever you told him, and he’s invested in that part of your life.
He invites You To Hang Out With His Friends. Hanging out with his friends pretty much seals the deal. That means he wants to show you off because he’s proud to be with you. He wants his friends to see what a smoke show he’s dating and it means he thinks you’re fun and cool and he wants his friends to see what a great personality you have.
He kisses you in public. I personally can’t stand PDA—I don’t like doing it or seeing it. I suppose it can be done tastefully, but I’m just not a fan. However, if a guy wants to give you a smooch in public, let him! He’s just excited to be your guy and wants the world to know that you’re his too.
He checks in on your well-being. One question I get from my boyfriend fairly frequently is, “Are you okay?” It might annoy some people but I find it so endearing. He usually asks that if I seem pouty or look like I’m in pain, and he stops what he’s doing to hear my answer and see if he can help. Who wouldn’t love that?? A guy who does this putting your needs and your well-being first. You’re number one in his eyes and that’s refreshing.
He gives good advice. He listens, sure, but how does he respond? Does he stay somewhat detached and keep his distance from your problems or does he try to get involved? If your guy can hear you out when you need to vent, that’s a golden quality. He can help you out when you’re in a tough situation and try and steer you in the right direction. It means you can count on him and trust his opinion. He wants things to work out for you and he’s trying to help you get there. Isn’t that sweet?
He posts pictures of the two of you Facebook, Twitter, etc. Social media is always a useful tool for figuring out what’s going on with someone, so if you see a post of you and him on his Insta, he’s smitten. It’s another way he can show you off to the world and he’s proud of it. We all know how much care and effort goes into editing a photo and coming up with a creative caption, so kudos to him.
He picks up your favorite food on the way home. He knows you love Doritos so he grabs a bag at the corner shop on the way home from work to surprise you. That basically makes him the best boyfriend ever. He wants to spoil and dote on you and you deserve it. Eat up!
He Always Wants To Be Near You. Does he sometimes act like a puppy that won’t leave you alone? Good! That means he adores you. He craves your presence. He wants to spend all his time with you and wants you involved in every part of his life. You make everything better and make him happy, and while you definitely still need to maintain your independence and have your own lives, it’s really sweet that he wants to spend so much of his with you.
He Says “Thank You.” Never underestimate the power of gratitude. Simply saying thank you goes a long way. You could do something special for him or you could just do little things daily to make his life easier without even realizing it. If he thanks you for it, it means he notices the little things too. Basically, you hit the boyfriend jackpot.
