Guys are so hard to read sometimes. They might tell you that they love you all the time, but how do you know your boyfriend is telling the truth?
If your boyfriend chooses to spend time with you, he most likely likes you. However, if he still wants to spend time with you when you can't be romantic or do anything fun (like go out), then he probably really loves you. A guy who truly loves you is not going to care that he is not going to get lucky that night or that you guys can't go out and party. His true love for you will shine when your presence is enough for him.
If your boyfriend loves you, he is going to talk about you. It's that simple. He is going to care about you and that will show when he talks to other people. If his friends mention that he talks about you a lot, consider this a great thing. As long as he is talking about you in a nice way, then this could mean he loves you.
Of course every person needs to spend time with friends. It is not healthy to just be with your partner 24/7 without ever seeing other friends. But if you see your boyfriend getting invitations to go out and he chooses you over his guy friends a few times, this really shows that he cares about you. Of course if he thinks he is going to get lucky, this may make him want to blow off the guys. But if you make it clear that nothing intimate will be happening, and he STILL chooses you, well that is a clear sign that he loves you.
If your boyfriend loves you, he will proudly hold your hand in public. If certain people walk by and he lets go of your hand or takes his arm off of your shoulder, this can signal a problem. But if he introduces you to everyone proudly and wants to be seen in public with you, then he most likely thinks you are a keeper.
Now, you could just be a real hottie and so he might show you off just so he looks cool. The key is also to pay attention to HOW he treats you in public. Is he all over you physically? Is he trying to make out or draw attention to the two of you? Is he asking you to dress a certain way when you go out? If so, then he may just think you look good with him and may want everyone to notice. But if he doesn't care if you are wearing makeup or not in public and is comfortable with just holding your hand, then he probably loves you.
A surefire way to tell if your boyfriend really loves you is to NOT be intimate with him and see how he reacts. If you are already sexually active with him, stop for a bit and tell him you just need a bit more time. If he reacts with understanding then he probably loves you. If he pressures you and doesn't want to be with you after you tell him no, then that is a clear sign that he doesn't really care about YOU or what YOU need and only cares about himself. All guys can feel like they are IN love when they are in a sexual relationship. But when that intimacy is taken away sometimes their true colors start to show.
Boyfriends are tricky to read, so be sure to always pay attention to what he says to you and how he treats you. Remember that you should never change to impress a guy and that being yourself should be enough for him.
