Men are not prone to going around and expressing their emotions to every girl they meet, so it’s often hard to see signs he cares deeply about you.
A man is a reserved human being who needs to be sure he can trust a woman first.
He needs to feel secure and have a comfortable environment where his ego won’t be hurt.
If you are unsure about his feelings for you, there are signs he cares deeply about you that you’ve might not be even aware of.
We’re not created equal, you have to understand that.
What might be easy for you, for your partner or the guy like might prove to be the hardest thing to do.
Women are emotional beings who are ready to pour their hearts into the person they care about.
Sometimes, guys who are emotionally intelligent will do this too because they’re mature.
But there are guys who drive you crazy trying to figure out if he cares about you or not.
Some guys are better with their words than others.
But most of them fail to express their feelings with words, so you will have a better chance of figuring out whether or not he cares about you by observing his actions.
His behavior and what he does toward you will tell a great deal about his feelings.
By noticing these signs he cares deeply about you, you will have a better chance at landing the guy you like.
Or maybe you are already in a relationship, but you’ve been unsure about his feelings for the past couple of weeks.
Some of these might come as a surprise to you because people have a hard time noticing those obvious signs when they’re in a state of doubt.
Your head’s spinning thinking about if he cares about you or is just playing games with you.
There are instances in which you should walk away from him – and I will get to that in a moment – but first let me explain what it means when a guy cares about you.
He may say he cares about you because he’s attracted to you.
Sometimes guys don’t have the strength to suppress their feelings toward you, but at the same time, they’re afraid of your response.
If you suspect that he cares for you, but you’re in doubt, check out his behavior toward his friends.
Does he treat you like he treats them? Does he say things to them that he says to you?
Those indicators can show the difference between “he’s attracted to me” and “he doesn’t like me.”
If he’s attracted to you, then his body language accompanied by his actions will tell you a great deal about his feelings.
These body language signs could be:
- mirroring your body language,
- positioning himself near you,
- talking with you in a deeper voice,
- pointing his feet at you.
You get my point, right?
While there are other body language signs, these are just a few that I thought you should keep an eye out for if you’re wondering if he likes you or not.
He might say that he cares about you because he considers you a friend.
Now, let’s roll back just a second. As I said, noticing his behavior toward his friends could tell you a great deal about his feelings, right?
Well, if he treats you no differently than he does his friends, then you know he sees you just as another friend of his.
Don’t get me wrong, he still might be attracted to you, but he needs to show some signs of attraction that you might not have noticed by now.
On top of that, he might say he cares about you if he thinks you’re feeling sad.
Something might have happened to you that would’ve made you feel down and now he’s trying to comfort you by saying that he cares about you.
It’s more likely that guys would say this in a more private setting, when the two of you are alone, rather than in front of his friends.
Yes, I know it’s stupid, but guys think that showing their emotions means they’re weak. At least, those immature guys think that.
Those who are mature and emotionally intelligent won’t have a problem with that, and they’ll be confident in saying that they care about you.
Although a guy might be reserved about his emotions, he’ll tell you he cares about you to find out what you think about him.
It might just be that he’s attracted to you, but he wants to know how you feel about him.
He may only say it once just to see your response because he’s shy and maybe insecure. That said, he would still show signs of attraction around you.
We’ve covered most meanings behind the words “I care about you.” Now it’s time to tell you more about the signs he cares deeply about you.
Those signs can include the way he positions himself toward you (meaning body language) or how he behaves when he’s around you.
You have to be careful not to miss these signs if you’re doubting his feelings.
Girls who are in relationships shouldn’t worry because I included some of these signs just for you.
I know that you’ve been thinking if he cares about you or not, especially if his behavior has changed recently.
Fear not, I’m here to help you uncloud your gloomy thoughts.
First, I’m gonna talk about physical gestures that might help you uncover his feelings toward you.
You know he cares deeply about you when…
1. He can’t take his eyes off of you
Making and maintaining eye contact with someone, especially with the person you like, requires a certain level of comfort.
Seeing that your partner doesn’t hesitate to do so means that he cares about you deeply.
You might catch him staring at you when you are doing some ordinary stuff, like washing the dishes or preparing your work clothes for the next day.
It shows that he has powerful feelings for you and that he cares deeply about you. You might catch his gaze even in a room full of people.
Why does he do that? Because he feels comfortable around you and he wants you to know that he cares about you.
Those eyes tell a lot of things, am I right? If your guy can’t stop looking at you and can’t help himself from staring at you, it’s a clear sign of intense attraction and deep caring.
2. He wants to get closer to you
A guy who deeply cares about you will do anything to be as close to you as possible. That said, sitting near you won’t be enough for him.
An obvious sign he cares deeply about you is when he takes your hand in his when you are strolling down in public.
The closeness he feels matches his feelings for you. He wants to feel as close to you as possible.
It’s important not to miss those subtle acts of tenderness that show you he cares deeply about you.
3. He has his feet pointed toward you
I mentioned this at the beginning of my article, and it’s an obvious sign that a guy isn’t just attracted to you, but also that he cares deeply about you.
This is something men have a hard time hiding. It’s a subconscious act that people can’t control. They’re not even aware of it.
It’s a strange sign, yet most girls tend to miss it.
You can rest assured that he finds you attractive and that he cares about you if his feet are pointed toward you.
Our body language mimics our emotions. Because of that, it’s hard to control yourself when you’re around someone you like or deeply care for.
4. He can’t stop hugging you
If you are unsure if he cares deeply about you or not, then notice how he approaches you the next time you see him.
Does he immediately go in for a hug? Or does he just shake your hand?
A guy who cares about you will try to show you his emotions through physical gestures – one of them being hugging.
If a guy immediately goes for a hug after not seeing you for a while, it means he’s definitely attracted to you.
And it’s not just an attraction at play, but also those deep emotions of caring about someone.
The guy who cares deeply about you will try to pause whatever he was doing just to give you a hug because he missed you.
It doesn’t matter how long it’s been since you’ve last seen each other.
5. He raises his eyebrows when he sees you
An instant sign of attraction and caring is when a guy raises his eyebrows when you’re around him.
Why? Because he is so captivated by your beauty that he can’t control himself.
Every little thing about you mesmerizes him, and he can’t take his eyes off of you.
Even those small things that you do around him make him happy. That’s why he raises his eyebrows almost every time he sees you.
Your beauty and elegance hypnotize him, and he can’t control his facial expressions around you.
That’s also why fiddling and twitching are signs that he likes you.
You simply cannot control your expressions or body language when you’re around someone you like or deeply care for.
That said, those are small things that most girls miss noticing because they’re just that – small and unnoticeable to our eyes.
There are many other physical gestures that could help you figure out if he cares deeply about you or not, such as:
- sitting more upright and fixing his posture when he’s with you,
- having his arms uncrossed when he notices you,
- his pupils dilating when talking with you,
- adjusting his hair or clothing.
There are many more signs, but I won’t go into too much detail about them, because they tell the same thing.
It’s just a reminder that his physical gestures tell more about his feelings than you think.
That said, his actions or the way he behaves toward you can help you figure out what’s going on inside his brain.
But there are more ways to know he cares deeply about you…
6. He remembers the little things about you
Carefully listening to what your partner has to say doesn’t just show you love them, but that you deeply care about them.
You respect their opinions and remember what they have to say. That even includes your favorite food.
When he cares deeply about you, he’ll make mental notes about your favorite things and surprise you with them.
Why, you might ask?
Because he wants to show you how much he cares for you, and he might pull those things out of his bag of tricks when you need cheering up.
When you’re feeling down and he brings out those delicious pancakes that you like so much, isn’t that sweet? Isn’t that a sign that he cares deeply about you?
Obviously it is. You just have to recognize it for what it is.
7. He’s being honest with you
It’s really frustrating and confusing if a guy can’t tell you his feelings immediately after you date him. But that’s the way the cookie crumbles.
On the other hand, he’ll have no problem telling the truth about other topics or situations.
He’ll tell you all about his past relationships or embarrassing situations because he feels like he can trust you.
Even if he has a small crush on you, it doesn’t matter. He wants to be honest, and he wants to start your relationship right.
Honesty is so crucial for a relationship to succeed. And he knows that.
If he cares deeply about you, he’ll be fully honest with you because he wants to get the awkwardness out of the way.
He knows that pretending to be something you’re not won’t make a relationship healthy.
You’ll just go home and freak out, and he wants to save you from those kinds of situations.
He’s aware that lies catch up to everyone.
Honesty can only benefit a relationship, so he won’t lie to you about where he is and with who because he cares deeply about you.
8. He’s very protective of you
Guys are naturally drawn to protect those they love.
If he gets protective when he thinks someone has hurt you, then you know he cares deeply about you.
It doesn’t matter to him if that other person is your friend who always manages to make you cry or one of your coworkers, he’ll always try to cheer you up and be on your side.
You know he’s ready to fight for you if he needs to. Those are the things that a guy will do for a girl only if he truly loves her.
There’ll be times when he’ll appear out of nowhere to protect you. You won’t even need to ask him.
His instincts will kick in and he won’t have any other choice. It’s part of his nature to protect you because he cares about you.
9. He shares his hobbies with you
I know you had relationships where your boyfriend cut you out from his activities because he said those are his hobbies and he wanted to share them with his boys.
Well, a guy who truly cares for you won’t hold that opinion. He’ll want to let you into his life because you’re like a precious gem to him.
Letting you into his world means he feels comfortable and secure.
He won’t have a problem sharing his hobbies and interests with you, no matter how dorky or unusual they are.
Maybe he’s into collecting certain toys or something similar.
Although some girls might think it’s childish or something like that, with you he won’t have a problem sharing that bit of personal information.
He doesn’t want any secrets between the two of you because he loves you and cares deeply about you.
That said, keep in mind that it goes both ways.
You’ll have to be patient and learn about what interests him, just like you did when you started dating him.
He’ll definitely reciprocate if he cares about you.
Not everything you like will fascinate him, but at least you’ll know he’ll put in the effort to please you and spend as much time as possible with you.
10. He introduces you to other people in his life
Since you play a crucial role in his life, he won’t have a problem introducing you to other people because he knows how special you are.
I know you wouldn’t ask just anyone to meet the important people in your life, and neither would he.
On the other hand, you’re not just anyone to him. He deeply cares about you, and he wants everyone to know it.
Who you bring into your life is just a reflection of yourself.
People only bring those dearest to their hearts, and you’re one of them if he introduces you to them.
That special occasion could be Thanksgiving or his grandmother’s birthday. It really doesn’t matter.
11. He’s open up to try new things with you
When we love someone and deeply care about them, there’s virtually nothing we won’t do for them. Love is fascinating, isn’t it?
It fills us with so much energy and excitement that we feel like nothing is impossible.
Well, if he cares deeply about you, he won’t have problems with trying new things with you.
More so, he’ll go out of his way and out of his comfort zone just to please you.
He’ll be up for any adventure with you, whether it’s bungee jumping or going on a hike.
12. He’s supportive and interested in your future
Getting to know a person means to know their goals and plans for life.
If you want to have a successful and healthy relationship, those goals need to be aligned with each other.
Being a perfect partner also means that you support each other and are interested in each other’s future.
He’ll be down to move away with you because of a job, and he’ll understand if you need to work at strange hours.
Why does he do that? Because he cares deeply about you.
He knows how much it means to you and wants to invest in himself to support you in your dreams and goals.
If he’s ready to move away because of you, and if he’s thinking about changing his plans to suit yours, you can be sure that he cares a lot!
13. He doesn’t shy away from texting you anytime
Part of having a healthy relationship means that your communication is on point.
That said, a guy who cares about you a lot will send you random text messages throughout the day.
He wants to remind you how much you mean to him and to show you he thinks about you.
By texting, I don’t mean those ordinary texts like “Hey, how are you?” I mean text messages like “I miss you” or “I hope you’re doing okay,” etc.
He might even send a text message involving several emojis.
Those aren’t ordinary text messages because he won’t put in the effort if he doesn’t care about you.
It’s not so much about the text message, it’s about you.
As I said before, men are not conversation wizards, so keep an eye on those emojis he sends you.
I hope that these signs helped you figure out if he cares deeply about you or not.
One or two signs might not give you the answer, but collectively they’re a fantastic indicator that the man you like cares about you a lot!
Sometimes it’s hard to express one’s emotions. Love is truly unique and sometimes it transcends our words.
We cannot tell the other person how much we care about them, so we try to show them with our actions and behavior.
Know that everyone shows love a little differently. Pay attention to those subtle signs that convey a whole other meaning.
Remember, it takes time for guys to truly open up about their emotions.
It’s pivotal that you practice patience and perseverance. Not everything he does is a sign that he loves and cares about you.
