“Actions speak louder than words” may be a bit of a cliche but it’s true, especially when it comes to love. If we had a dime for every guy who said “I love you” but CLEARLY didn’t mean it, we’d all be rich enough to fund our own spin-off of The Bachelor. Finding a guy who knows how to SHOW how he feels and not just say it is much harder to come by. Guys, this is how it’s done.
1. PAY ATTENTION TO THE LITTLE THINGS.
And not just the basic first date questions like our favorite color is or how many siblings we have. You need to listen to our stories well enough to hear the things we don’t even realize she mentioned. Take us to our favorite restaurant without having to ask or download that Netflix movie we quoted one time even if we never said it was our favorite.
2. KISS US LIKE YOU MEAN IT.
There’s no way to deny how you feel about us when your lips tenderly, softly, and intensely meet ours. Kiss us every morning, every night, and every time you look into our eyes and are compelled to tell us we’re beautiful. Kiss us even if you’re fighting, and never take a single one for granted. We’ll notice.
3. BE OUR BIGGEST CHEERLEADER.
Nothing says love quite like unwavering support and encouragement. Whether it’s our professional life or a personal challenge, make sure we know that no matter what, you’re in our corner. The honeymoon phase may come and go, but being able to trust that you’ll stand by us through thick and thin shows that you truly do love us and our goals, even if they seem out of reach.
