Is there anything better than feeling loved?
One of the best feelings you can have is the feeling of being loved, and it’s something that we all seek out. When you feel loved, it opens the door for you to be your best self and to be honest about who you really are without pretense or fear.
Not everyone in a relationship feels loved; in fact, it takes a special partner to make someone truly feel loved. He may demonstrate it in physical ways such as making sure you’re cared for and have your needs met, or he can show it in emotional ways like being there when you’re having a bad day.
Someone who truly loves you wants you to feel his love every day and in every way, and he always put you at the top of his list. He's present and listens carefully to the things you say and don’t say to figure out what you need to feel loved.
When someone truly wants you to feel loved, he shows you at all times of the year, not just on Valentine’s Day or on your birthday. He doesn’t always show you love with grand gestures; instead, he may make you feel loved by taking care of you when you’re sick or rushing out to the grocery store when you forgot to pick up an item you need for a recipe you’re making that night.
True love isn’t about how other people outside the relationship see it — it’s about the small things that add up to an overall feeling of warmth, protection, care, and affection.
The stars know what you need from him to feel truly loved, and each zodiac sign has its own set of characteristics and is different when it comes to feeling loved. We're going to break down exactly how zodiac signs show love.
He doesn't just say they love you, he shows you through his actions. He'll anticipate your needs and before you even ask he will have done whatever it was that you needed. He makes your life easier and better, and you know that your best interest is at the top of his priority list.
He makes you feel loved by their his unexpected gestures of love. He will send you flowers for no reason at all or get you a foot massage when you've had a hard day. When you don't think you can stand another dinner of popcorn because you're too exhausted to cook, he will bring you dinner without you even mentioning it.
Somewhere along the line, someone must have told him to use their words carefully because he does, especially with you. Whenever he has anything to say — whether it be positive or negative — he says it gently and with heart. He knows that you take the power of words very seriously and he doesn't abuse it. You know that the care in which he communicates is powerful.
He makes you feel loved with his focused and undivided attention. You never get the feeling that his mind is wandering when you're talking with him. He's completely present with you and makes you feel as if he will always be there for you.
You like to be amongst people and be the center of attention, so it's not surprising that you feel the most loved when he praises you in public. We all like to be validated, and it goes double for you when you're complimented and there are witnesses.
When he lends a hand with chores around the house or any kind of project you're working on, you feel truly loved. Nothing says "I care" like someone who tackles a sink full of dirty dishes or who cleans your car for you.
You don't like to be criticized or called out on something foolish you've done or a mistake you've made, so there's nothing that makes you feel more loved and protected than when he defends you fiercely. If someone disrespects you or criticizes you and he stands up for you, you have evidence of how deeply he cares for you.
Love and trust go together in your book and you feel the most loved when he shows that he's completely trustworthy. You're at your happiest and most comfortable when the person in your life never makes you doubt his feelings for you or the commitment he's made to you.
You're often the most hilarious, happiest, and optimistic person in the room, but no one can be that way all the time. You feel the most loved when he lets you know that it's OK to feel insecure, out of control, and quiet sometimes. You know that he will be there when you're feeling fun and are the life of the party, and when you don't want to get out of bed and face the day.
He makes you feel loved in small ways such as the way he speaks to you, the kind understanding words he uses, and how you'll catch him staring at you with love in his eyes when you least expect it. All those small expressions of love add up to you feeling completely loved.
You're not somebody who is comfortable with showing their emotions and you tend to be a bit aloof and detached, even when you're in love. However, you feel loved the most when he calls you out on your sh*t and demands that you acknowledge the love he has for you. It's kind of a tough love, but that's the kind that's needed to get through the thick skin surrounding your heart.
You're always giving to others but they, in turn, seem to fall flat when it comes to doing for you. You feel the most loved when he comes through for you and shows up for every important (or not so important) event, even when there are a million other things he could be doing. He makes sure to let you know that he will always be there for you.
