Men feel love as much as women do. It’s so common for women to feel that most guys are just after sex, but it’s not true at all. Men are looking for love as much as women are, and they feel all the emotional highs and lows that love brings forth.
When a man is in love with a woman, he is not thinking of getting her to bed. He is actually captivated by her presence, bitten by the love bug and struck by the cupid’s arrow. Very few men actually “lust” after a woman they are in love with, so it’s not their agenda to just get into her pants. Many men seek companionship, trust and care from their girl; sex then becomes a natural outcome of the closeness or intimacy in the relationship.
So how does a man show his love for a woman? Here are a few common ways that a man behaves with a woman he is in love with.
He becomes protective towards her
Since the primitive ages, men have always been the protectors and the providers. These tendencies are hard wired into the male brain. As soon as man falls in love with girl, he looks to be protective towards her. He will walk her home, give her a lift to the office, hold her hand while crossing the road and stuff like that. And nothing makes a man happier than to realize that the object of his love actually feels secure in his company.
He gets possessive about her
Most men are more prone to jealously than women. It’s because men always feel the need to claim their domain, and hate it when any other guy tries to move in on it. So when a guy is in love with a girl he is bound to get pretty possessive towards her, at least during the initial phases of the relationship. Bouts of unreasonable jealously can be quite common.
He tends to pamper her
Guys have a way of pampering the girl they are in love with. Taking her to cool eating places, getting her gifts, taking her for vacations, helping with her chores, driving her to work etc. Some guys tend to do it a lot more than others. This basic tendency towards “material” pampering was prevalent even in the old ages, when men used to bring back spoils from their travels, and wars, for their women. It’s not as if a man is trying to win a woman’s heart by “buying” her (or may be it is), but it’s mostly an unconscious tendency a man has towards being the “provider” for the woman he’s in love with.
He gets emotional around her
Most men are very reserved about their emotions and usually shy away from opening up with their feelings. A good majority of men are very controlled in their behavior in public and restrain from displaying any form of emotion, even anger, excitement or sadness. The only outlet for a man’s emotion is usually his “girl”. It’s quite common for men to let loose with their emotions in close relationships. Anger, jealousy, excitement, depression and a whole host of other emotions that he’s been hiding within himself, will be revealed in front of the woman he’s in love with. Love after all is an “emotional” bonding and goes deeper than physical attraction.
He tries to impress her with his accomplishments
Men are a lot like dogs when it comes to craving attention. When a man is in love with a woman, he seeks her attention all the time even if he’s not open about it. All men are very “needy” for love; most of them just don’t reveal it because they are afraid of coming across as being “weak”. Men indirectly try to garner love and attention by “accomplishing” things and bragging about it. It’s quite common for a man to come across as being cocky and arrogant because of the way he brags around in front of his girl. It’s important to understand that men are very objective and tend to believe that they need to prove their “self-worth” in terms of their accomplishments.
Men are conditioned to be “cold” and unemotional, but this does not mean that they don’t have a heart. Most men have a tough time trying to suppress their emotions in order to appear “manly”. A woman can get confused by a man’s behavior because he might try to avoid expressing his feelings. It’s best to judge a man’s love by his actions rather than by his display of emotions, this is because men tend to be very objective by nature.
