Is your man “the one” or “the one for now”?
Actions speak louder than words. Nowhere else is this better demonstrated than when it comes to men’s actions. If you’ve ever wondered if he’s with you for the long haul, here are some of the ways he expresses his long term affections for you!
The Shoe Sale
Let’s face it, most men hate shopping. Many despise the idea of spending an afternoon at the mall. But if your man agrees to go to a shoe sale with you, he’s in it for the long haul. He’ll wait for hours on end, trying desperately to find a place to sit down, while you try on endless pairs of heels. Not only will he wait patiently, he’ll carry your shopping bags and hold your purse while you try on one more pair of caged boots. The man who will go the extra mile will even carry them all to your dressing room so you can try them on with a new pair of jeans!
Any man that will go to the corner drug store to purchase female sanitary products is a keeper. We just hope he understands the difference between pads, tampons, wings, and liners!
The Chick Flick
If your girlfriends aren’t available to see the latest chick flick you’ve been dying to see and he’s willing to go, he’s serious about you. Think Beaches, The Notebook and Steel Magnolias. Don’t forget to bring your Kleenex so the two of you can bawl together!
If your man is willing to give up Sunday football to visit your aging Aunt Louise, his actions are speaking louder than words. After all, he’s giving up Howie Long, Terry Bradshaw, Michael Strahan, and Jimmy Johnson on FOX NFL for YOU!
Cooking and Cleaning
If you’ve had an exhausting week at work and come home to a homemade meal, he’s an exceptional man. The meal might consist of canned beans and toast, but at least he’s trying! [If he needs help in the kitchen, send him a few links to our recipes.]
The Ladies Room
If he waits endlessly for you at the entrance of the ladies’ room, he’s in love. After all, there is never a line for the men’s room, yet there is always an eternal line for the ladies room. If he is standing there holding your purse for you while you go, that’s extra bonus points for him!
The Listening Ear
You had a bad day, a terrible day in your opinion, and he’s there to listen to every moment of it play by play. No matter how trite and trivial he may think it is, he’s there to genuinely listen and that is all that matters.
If he calls just to say hi, he thinks about you all of the time. You never have to worry about him calling, because he will always check in for no particular reason.
If he asks your opinion and wants to know your thoughts on a particular matter that is important to him, he truly respects you. This may include matters of work, business, finances or the future.
He Counts on You
He needs you each and every day and relies on you to do certain things for him. Conversely, you show him you are in it for the long haul by taking the time to help him with things that are challenging to him. Let’s face it, everything takes time and effort and he appreciates you for all that you do for him.
The modern man of today might be considered whipped, but whipped is not a bad thing if both of you are happy. Cheers to love!
