If he is there for you, if he is considerate of you, if he goes out of his way for you, if he opens up to you, he loves you. Look, I don’t think I’m making any radical claims by saying men are the less communicative of the two genders.

For instance, let’s say a woman is in a truly amazing relationship and the only problem is her man has yet to say those three not-so-little words.

She may start to obsess over why he hasn’t said it and what it means.

Countless studies have shown that women primarily gain their sense of worth and self-esteem through their interpersonal relationships while men measure their worth based on their ability to have an impact in the world and contribute in a meaningful way.

If a man is at work, then that is the sole center of his world and nothing exists outside of that.

Sadly, a lot of relationships collapse before they even get off the ground because the girl can’t handle the sudden decrease in daily texts and instead of dealing with it, she lashes out at the guy and demands explanations for every text he doesn’t reply to.

The mistake that many make is thinking that the sudden drop in texts means he’s losing interest or doesn’t care. Most often, he’s just settling back into his normal routine. You can spend all day going back and forth with some guy about nonsense.

The trick is to do it in a way that’s encouraging, not one that’s threatening, demanding, or nagging.

When he does something you like and appreciate, acknowledge it and reward him for it.

Show him how happy it made you when he did such and such.
