When a man walks into your life and sweeps you off your feet, you can't imagine how things could get any better. You dream of starting a family, going on adventures and growing old together, all with this one, special person.
But, what if your man isn't quite who you think he is?
What if he's better?
Here are 14 subtle signs your man is actually better than you think he is:
You might not notice, but your man is constantly doing things for others. Whether he's helping your neighbor take in their groceries or feeding the stray cat that always comes to your house, you know he's compassionate and has a huge heart. The best part is you probably don't even notice half of the small acts of service he performs because he doesn't do it for praise.
Whenever you tell people you're with him, they only have the best things to say about your man. Everyone who knows him genuinely loves him, and that's a huge indicator that he's better than you ever imagined.
Your mister never ceases to amaze you in everything he does, but he's not cocky about it either. His pure goodness might seem fake at first, but you come to realize that he's truly the best and he'll never, ever stop trying to impress you and make you happy.
It's common for siblings to fight and for people to argue with their parents occasionally, but you rarely see it from your man. He knows his family relationships are priceless, so he treats his family members like gold. If he does this, he'll do the same for your future family.
Sometimes you wonder how a person can even be that nice, and maybe you've questioned if it's fake. But, now you know there is no way he is faking — he's just genuinely kind.
I've heard from at least five different people that my husband was their best friend. It doesn't matter if he was on the high school football team or president of the chess club, he's just a friend to everyone.
My husband was offered a potential position on a great college football team, and he was going to play for them after a two-year service mission. When he came home and met me, he ditched those plans to attend the school where I was enrolled. I didn't know my husband when he was offered this position, and I didn't find out about it until a year and a half into our marriage because he never mentioned it.
When I found out and asked him why he didn't go, he said before he met me, nothing mattered except college sports. But after he met me, he didn't care about playing football at all because he knew I was his future.
Your sweetheart knows exactly what he wants, and he'll do anything within reason to get it. He works hard for everything he has, and you know he'll keep working for your future.
A man who takes care of himself is better equipped to take care of others. He's definitely not self-absorbed, but he knows what he needs to do to function properly so he can give you the best love and care possible.
You might not notice, but he always pays attention when you're talking, when you're doing something or when you're simply spending time together. He knows you're more important than anything on his phone, so he devotes all his attention to you.
Even if you dragged him to a wedding three weekends in a row, he doesn't complain about it because he's grateful to spend time with you and he knows it makes you happy.
He makes a point to notice when you get your hair done or when you buy his favorite cereal. These are definitely small things, but he notices and appreciates them.
Your sweetheart knows exactly how you love to be loved. It's hard to notice, but if your love language is physical touch and he's constantly holding your hand or has his arm around you, he's making an effort to make you feel all the love he has for you.
You can't quite put your finger on it, but there's something about him that is just incredible. He makes you feel like you're on top of the world and you want nothing more than to be with him forever.
If your sweetheart shows any of these 14 signs, he's definitely better than you think he is.
