The stars say it's in his touch.
There are so many things people can do to show their partners how much they love them. Maybe they buy them flowers, take them out to a fancy dinner or a Broadway show, or leave them sweet post-it notes around their home.
If he's not showing you his affection, perhaps he's reminding you daily with a simple "I love you," and sealing it with a kiss. Or maybe she tells you how much you mean to her.
No matter what your partner does to show you he or she loves you, nothing compares to the physical ways someone expresses their love and gratitude. That might come in the form of a foot rub, massage, or a long hug and kiss.
Though words are nice, it's often the physical aspect of expressing love that people appreciate most. Wouldn't you rather have a sweet massage from your love than a trip to the spa? Doesn't it feel good to have him touching your waist when you're doing something monotonous, like standing in line at the grocery store?
Maybe you're not used to this kind of physical closeness; your past partners never showed you intimate touch in this way. When you don't expect certain things in your relationships, it's easy to push them out of your mind and not think you deserve them.
The point is, maintaining that physical contact and connection in a relationship is important. And that's where astrology comes in. Astrology helps us to learn about ourselves, as well as the ones we love.
Here's how he physically says "I love you," according to his zodiac sign.
If an Aries man loves you, you already know because they're so direct and bold. If you want some additional evidence of his love, he probably touches you a lot like when you're standing in line at the grocery store, he may grab your hand, or he'll be sure to have his arm around your waist. He'll also do some showing off of how athletic he is, and if he thinks he has any competition, he'll physically prove that he's a better catch.
Since Taurus men are the kings of foreplay, he probably shows you he loves you by paying attention to every part of your body with touch. When you're tired, he'll give you back rubs and massages. Luckily, he definitely is gifted with magic fingers.
Geminis are very social and love to talk, so when he actually leans in to listen to what you have to say and doesn't interrupt you, that's a very clear sign that he loves you. Also, look for a big smile after he kisses you; he simply can't contain his happiness.
Your Cancer man is there for you 100 percent emotionally, so when you're telling him something painful, he will hold you close to him and touch your hair. It's almost parental the amount of care he gives you.
A Leo man in love will shower you with affection, but the most telling thing is when he's there for the non-spectacular, day-to-day stuff — going with you to walk the dog, or taking you to the dentist. If he can, he'll want to show you how brave he is, so if something seems odd, let him go into that old, dark basement first.
Virgo men aren't about big, showy gestures, but he'll physically show you he loves you through consideration and good manners. Another clue is how he mirrors your behavior. Does he chew his food at the same speed that you do, or roll his eyes the same way you do? It's love.
Almost everyone loves Libra, but even with all that choice of people to spend time with, your guy chooses you. He's also showing he loves you by keeping a close personal distance. If he has a choice to sit on the couch next to you or in another chair, he chooses to sit next to you. He always wants to be in close touching distance.
A Scorpio man shows his love with long, passionate kisses that are so intense you could get lost in them. He also has his eyes on you no matter where you are. You could be at a party or at home, but you'll no doubt catch him staring at you.
If a Sagittarius man loves you, the first sign is that he'll stick around and be physically present for you; Sagittarius constantly like to be moving and traveling. When you're watching a romantic comedy together does he look over at you to see if you're laughing too, or does he grab your hand and kiss it for no reason? These are the ways he physically tells you he loves you.
The way you can tell if a Capricorn man loves you is to look at his face, because his love for you is probably written all over it. He can try to be all formal and stoic, but he turns to mush where you're concerned. Does he laugh at your jokes and does he allow himself to actually giggle at the silly stuff of life? Yeah, this is all just evidence of his adoration for you.
An Aquarius man is like the most popular guy of the crunchy granola set, so when he introduces you to his many friends, you know he loves you — especially since he makes sure to be touching you on your arm or your back while he's doing the intros.
Pisces people love to hug, so it may not be clear from all the hugging that he does that your Pisces man loves you. But notice if his hugs last a bit longer and seem extra sweet. He also shows his love by paying attention to your feet with foot rubs and massages.
