Does He Care About Me? 16 Hidden Signs That Guarantee He Really Does

Does He Care About Me? 16 Hidden Signs That Guarantee He Really Does

Even in great relationships, there can be times where you wonder: Does my boyfriend really care about me? (Or husband. Or guy that you’re currently seeing.) Here are the specific signs to to know if he cares about you.

It can be difficult to figure out whether a guy really cares about you – sometimes you think he does, but other times, you’re not so sure. He says he does, but you’re not convinced about his actions. Or maybe he just never tells you and you’re feeling a bit insecure about it.

Actions and feelings in a relationship can be confusing, so if you’re having a hard time figuring him out, then perhaps you should be paying more attention. There are certain things he says or does that can tip you off on whether or not he genuinely cares. Here are 16 signs that demonstrate that he really does care about you and wants to be with you.

1. It’s Not “Her And I”, It’s “We”

This one is soooo cute. He says “we”. It means he thinks of you as an item, as a team. You’re together for the long haul and he isn’t shy about vocalizing it. He really cares and he is telling you and everyone else.

2. He’s Patient And Understanding

We all act a little bit irrational from time to time – especially when we’re hormonal – but he’s incredibly patient and understanding with you. He doesn’t get angry and he is not dismissive of your feelings. Instead, he takes the time to understand what is wrong and where you’re coming from.

3. He Listens To You

There is a difference between “hearing” and “listening”, and men often do the former, thinking they’re doing the latter. If he actually pays attention to what you’re saying, is genuinely interested, and offers solutions or advice, then you know he is listening and that he cares about you and what you’re going through. He wants things to be better for you and he wants to help.

4. He Cares About Your Pleasure

Think about it – how is he in bed? Not whether the sex is good or not, but does he make an effort to get you off? Does he enjoy giving you pleasure? Does he care about your pleasure? That’s a sign he really cares. If he’s actually a bit selfish and it’s all about him… you may be in trouble.

5. He Asks For Your Advice

Here’s something you need to know about guys – they don’t like to talk to other people about their problems and struggles. They’re very “handle my own stuff” kind of people. That makes it even more obvious that when he comes to you for advice or to vent, it’s because he trusts you and respects your opinion and judgement. He wouldn’t do that with just anyone.

6. He Makes Concessions For You

You won’t always like the same things or want to do the same activities. That can create conflicts, especially when stubborn people are involved. But he makes concessions for you. He may hate that movie you want to see next week, but he goes anyway, because he cares about you. And he shuts up around that friend of yours he hates. What a guy!

7. He Wants To Make Up

Some of your bad boyfriends may have played the role of the wounded, brooding male and ran away after fights. That is childish and terribly disrespectful to you. Needing to be alone is fine; running away for days and giving you the silent treatment with no signs of wanting to make things better is not.

But he isn’t like that. Instead, he actively takes steps towards reconciliation and tries to make things better and understand how to fix problems and avoid conflicts in the future. He’s a keeper.

8. He Remembers Little Things About You

This isn’t necessarily a super important thing and you could overlook it, but it is a subtle sign that he is undoubtedly in love with you. Does he remember that you used to be obsessed with The Muppets when you were a child, so he buys you a Kermit t-shirt? Does he know you’re cranky when you’re hungry, so he keeps a power bar in his backpack? He pays attention and cares enough to remember little things.

9. He’s Not Jealous And Possessive

Look, there’s a “cute” kind of jealous – when he kind of shit talks that one guy at work who flirts with you, or puts a protective arm around your waist when he thinks some guy at the bar is checking you out. But controlling behavior is never ok and it is absolutely not a sign of love. Don’t fall for the impression that possessiveness and insane jealousy is love. It’s abusive. Your guy does none of that, and that’s great!

10. He Tries To Make A Good Impression On Your Folks

He knows how important your friends and your family are to you, so he makes an effort to leave a good impression on them. He shows up for events, chats them up, tries to help and generally contribute in a meaningful way.

11. He’s Happy And Excited For You

You know how you are genuinely excited for your best friend because she is excited and has a great opportunity, or incredible fortune? He’s happy when you’re happy. Excited when you are. If it puts a smile on your face or things are going well for you, it makes him happy. Because he really cares about you.

12. He Is Interested In You And Pays Attention

You know how some people will just tune you out, or just ask how you are our of habit, or to be polite? He doesn’t do that. Instead, he is genuinely interested and he listens to what you are saying. He pays attention, he asks questions and he wants to know more about your day, about what you’re feeling, etc.

13. He Doesn’t Lie To You

People will often lie in a mistaken attempt to spare one’s feelings, but your guy knows that is not ok. He respects you too much to lie to you, and while the truth may hurt, he always wants you to be aware of it. He understands that a successful relationship can only be built on the truth and he wants you guys to have a real chance.

14. He Tries To Help When You’re Upset

From time to time, we all have little break-downs. We’re upset, we’re scared, and we just need someone. And he is that someone for you. Whenever you’re upset or down, he is there for you and will leave everything else to be by your side and support you.

If he cares about you and you’re special to him, he’ll want you to meet his friends and family. Guys love showing off their girl to their friends; it means he thinks you’re amazing and he wants everyone to know!

16. He Fights For You

Surely you’ve had some ups and downs – when things are bad, does he show you that he is willing to fight? Is he passionate about you being together? Is he willing to do what it takes? A man who cares about you is a man who will fight for you and won’t let you go without doing whatever he can to keep you.

    a man who is serious about you will do anything for you, he would even fight for you if necessary. if he cares about you, he’ll do anything to protect you and make you feel secure.

  • ariana December 5, 2018, 5:26 pm

    he goes the extra mile – this is one of the clearest signs that a man genuinely cares about you. he will find ways to spend time with you.

  • cary December 4, 2018, 12:20 pm

    only a man who truly cares about you will want to make a good impression on your folks. when you find this guy, you’re sure he’s a keeper! =)

    i really need this. glad i can now easily identify the signs and i am happy that this article also helps us understand what to do about these signs.

  • debbie November 30, 2018, 1:29 pm

    a guy a who cares about you will not let anything upset you. he’ll know what you’d like and dislike, and he’ll make sure to put an effort in making you smile and feel really happy.

  • dorcas November 29, 2018, 12:58 pm

    oh my gosh, i’ve been with a guy who was so jealous and possessive, it’s just so bad. i felt really suffocated and i wanted out for the longest time. avoid this type of men, it will be really messed up in the end.

  • gwen November 28, 2018, 5:43 pm

    i appreciate you posting this article. nowadays it is really difficult to determine if the guy you’re seeing really does care about you or if it’s all just an act.

  • chelly November 27, 2018, 12:27 pm

    you know a guy cares about you when he’s really patient and understanding with you. only a guy who cares enough will be willing to do this, as we all know how impatient men can be. most of them just stay a bit and just aims to get what he wants from you then flee.

  • jasmine November 26, 2018, 1:27 pm

    when a guy remembers the little things about you, that means he listens to you intently. only a guy who cares about a woman will be willing to do this, and it doesn’t feel like an obligation or responsibility. it will come out naturally.

  • ayanna November 23, 2018, 1:33 pm

    when a guy genuinely cares about you, he’s happy and excited for you. unlike some men who would feel jealous of a woman’s achievements over them, a caring guy will be most happy for you and your success.

  • meredith November 22, 2018, 6:57 pm

    he is patient and understanding. this is a specific sign to look for to know if your guy really cares about you. not all men can handle girls emotions so if your man is like this, you better not let him go.

  • rissa November 21, 2018, 1:25 pm

    i have been married for a couple of years now and i do sometimes wonder if my husband still cares about me. sometimes, i feel like everything we do is all part of a routine even those text messages that we send everyday. thanks for this article, i have been reminded how lucky i am for him who’s so loving and caring.

  • nadine November 20, 2018, 7:31 pm

    if a man cares about you then he will not lie to you about any sort of things. he will be honest about anything even if it embarrasses him.

  • izzy November 19, 2018, 5:55 pm

    for me, listening is the best way a man can show he really cares. i always look for this in a guy because it is important that we communicate well. if he doesn’t bother knowing how my day was or how i’m feeling, that means he only cares about stuff happening with him.

  • amber November 15, 2018, 5:41 pm

    these signs are really specific! a man will only do these things if he really cares about you!

  • aubrey November 13, 2018, 5:06 pm

    for me, a man truly cares for you when he goes out of his ways to make you comfortable.

  • vivian November 9, 2018, 7:03 pm

    no need to drive myself crazy thinking if my man really does care about me. i list down all the signs all i need to do is observe his behavior.

  • alyson November 7, 2018, 4:25 pm

    my boyfriend is honest to me about everything and by doing so, it clearly means that he truly cares about me. he is not the type who loves to play mind games and i consider myself lucky for that.

  • miley October 31, 2018, 6:06 pm

    this question keeps on hitting my mind over and over again and to be honest, it is driving me crazy! your article is a great help. it will help me guess if he is serious about me or not.

  • janet October 31, 2018, 2:53 pm

    a guy who cares about your pleasure is definitely for keeps! only a sincere one will truly prioritize this esp when we’re talking about pleasure in bed.

  • judith October 29, 2018, 4:23 pm

    thank you for this post. it is really important to observe your relationship to the best of your ability. will watch out for these signs.

  • kara October 26, 2018, 1:30 pm

    when a guy tries to be there, help you and cheers you up when you’re upset, that means he cares about you. only a man who truly cares will spend time listening to you and making you feel better whenever you’re down.

  • avia October 24, 2018, 7:58 pm

    i am actually in a relationship with a man who has never told me how much he loves me but it is actually the best relationship that i have ever been in. even if he doesn’t say it, he shows all of the signs listed here.

  • amara October 23, 2018, 1:22 pm

    i agree with the use of “we’ and “us” terms. if he uses these and not the “me” or “i”, then you know he really cares and is absolutely planning on staying.

  • saphire October 22, 2018, 4:35 pm

    i am glad my husband always listens to me whenever i share to him what i am going through. he really pays attention to whatever i am saying and i appreciate that he always does things to make me feel better.

  • bettina October 19, 2018, 12:45 pm

    a guy shows interest by being in the moment, by listening and really paying attention. only someone who cares about you will do this.

  • marcelle October 18, 2018, 5:20 pm

    it is a guaranteed sign that a guy cares about you if he doesn’t lie to you. it means he is scared to hurt your feelings. i wish all guys are like this.

  • may October 17, 2018, 12:20 pm

    when a man fights for you, that means he cares a lot about you. even when a man fights with you, that also also shows his care for you.

  • mirabella October 16, 2018, 5:01 pm

    thank you for compiling this list. very helpful. i agree with them all. your guy definitely loves and cares for you if he does these things.

  • mela October 15, 2018, 1:41 pm

    you would know if a man cares about you when your happiness is more important than his. he will put your interests first and make you a priority.
