This is not what a committed relationship should feel like. I’ve had a number of female friends over the years ask, How can I tell he loves me? I’ve answered this question a lot of different ways but when it boils down to it, the best way to tell if a man loves you is to STRESS. HIM. OUT! I’m serious.
You’re probably thinking to yourself, “Stress him out? That’s ridiculous!” That’s because you’ve been brainwashed.
1. A man has to care about you enough to even let you stress him out.
2. If a man really loves you, a little stress is not going to make him leave. An oft glossed over fact of life is that relationships take work. If a man is willing to work on your relationship, it’s because he cares. If he runs at the first sign of hardship he didn’t value you or the relationship very much.
