Love can be a different experience for many different types of people. Some people fall in love so easily, while others can wrestle with the concept. Some people share a love that is easy while others have a love that needs some work. But there are some universal constants in the world of love that are constant in all relationships.
It is common knowledge that girls tend to be more empathetic and more open about their feelings than boys. Men often try to show a rough and gruff exterior, an impenetrable shell of feelings. But when men start to get deep into a relationship, things start to change. They notice things that are different with him, and this is normal behaviour.
Here are the 9 things that happen to a man when the relationship starts to become real.
1. He starts introducing you to all the important people in his life
As you begin to become a central part of his life, it is only natural that he wants you to be included in his small circle of loved ones. He will introduce you to his siblings, his best friends, and maybe even his parents. He is sure who you are as a friend and he is sure that you will enchant his whole family and friends as you did with him.
2. He is interested in the plans you have for yourself.
He wants to know what you imagine for yourself in your future and if he has a place in it. He does not want to force himself directly into your life, and he respects all the plans and goals you have set for yourself. But he hopes that he somehow fits into the picture of your future.
3. He shows that he cares about you.
He is gentler and more caring than ever. He is physically and emotionally more intimate than ever. He likes to hold your hand when he senses that you feel anxious. He hugs you when you feel down. He cares for you when you are sick or he brings you your favorite cake when he knows you are having a bad day. He will start doing even the smallest things to make you happy, just to show you that he cares about you.
4. He tries to learn more about your family.
He understands that your family is important to you, and he wants to make an effort to show you that it is important to him as well. He tries to learn more about what life is like at home and he also tries his best to make your parents like him. He wants your family to know that he is actually good enough to have a relationship with you.
5. He allows himself to be more vulnerable to you.
He opens up to you much more. He reveals more and more about himself, which he would normally not reveal to other people. He opens himself to the risks of heartache and rejection, but he doesn’t mind that because you are actually worth the risk. The thought of being hurt is okay for him as long as it means he has the chance to be with you.
6. He’s willing to go on vacation with you.
It’s a big deal to go on vacation for the first time as a couple. It means that you are willing to trust each other while exploring unknown territories. It shows that you are ready to be adventurous and spontaneous with each other. It also shows that he no longer cares what other people think about you being together. Things are getting serious, and all that matters is what you both think about the situation.
7. He is more open to talking about the future
He used to avoid the conversation. He always used to say that you only have fun for the moment and that the future is not really important yet. In those days, he was rather casual. But now he’s willing to have this conversation. He wants to finish things off and he wants to imagine a future with you by his side.
8. He is now more financially aware.
He is actually trying to start saving to prepare for the life that you will share with each other. Relationships can be expensive, and he understands that. He doesn’t want to scare you off by getting a little too involved, but there is never anything wrong with preparing some money just in case you decide to do things right?
9. He entrusts you with his time, thoughts and feelings
No man is an island, but a man will struggle with the idea of being dependent on others. He wants to be independent, he wants to feel strong. He wants to feel that he can handle everything by himself until he meets you. Now he has lost his vigilance, and he dedicates more of himself to you because he understands that you are an important piece of the puzzle that completes him.
