I've learned one important rule of thumb when it comes to relationships: assume nothing. If he hasn't told you, or most importantly shown you, that he loves you, don't assume he does. If he hasn't mentioned a future with you, don't assume that the two of you will get married, have kids, and live happily ever after. More importantly, if you are the one developing or creating the relationship don't assume that he actually wants to be in it.
Sometimes it can be quite difficult to not force something when we want it badly; but forcing someone to be in a relationship or love you is a recipe for total disaster. Surprisingly, some people don't even realize when they're forcing love. They go through the motions, making excuses for why the other person isn't reciprocating their actions. The reality is if you are always on the giving in of love and never receiving it, it may not exist in the other person.
