How do I know if he really loves me and wants to be with me?
This is by far the question I get most from my readers. It makes me sad that so many wonderfully deserving and quality women out there are in relationships where they even feel like they have to ask this question. And yet, I hear it all the time. From readers, from friends, across social media, and Lord knows I’ve heard the same cry from my own heart at least a dozen times: “How do I know if he really loves me and wants to be with me?”
The truth is that I can’t tell you some magical formula for how to figure out if he really loves you and wants to be with you. I can’t tell you this because I have yet to find my forever person who I hope will definitively answer this question for me once and for all. But through my own experiences and through helping many a friend navigate through many a heartache, I think I’ve come up with a pretty clear formula about how to tell if he doesn’t really love you and want to be with you—which might sound harsh until I remind you that a man who doesn’t really love you and doesn’t really want to be with you is also a man who doesn’t deserve you.
