How a loving man behaves: main signs
How to understand that your man really loves you? How does a loving man behave? It is useless to listen, it is better to observe his behavior: all his intentions can be read by three main signs.
Male psychology nine0003
We can speculate as much as we want about a man's true attitude towards us. It doesn't matter how long you've been together. We girls have different situations and circumstances that make us doubt his love. These doubts corrode us from the inside, destroying ourselves and our relationships, giving rise to feelings such as jealousy, self-doubt, fear of loss. If a man loves, how does he behave?
How does a man who loves a woman behave?
We can ask a man as much as we like: “Do you love me?” — but you hardly like to ask him about it at all. And no matter what the answer is, it is not always able to dispel your doubts. And you again and again try to analyze his behavior, trying to find signs of a loving man in him. And, it would seem, here is a loving man married to you, that says it all, but no, you still look closely at how he behaves. You do it right! nine0003
In general, asking about love when there are doubts in your soul is somehow awkward, you feel like some kind of beggar. Do not bother him with questions about love, the behavior of a loving man speaks for itself.
Firstly, if your man really loves you, then this does not mean at all that he should inform you about this every half an hour. He will not do this, if only because his, male, love is fundamentally different from female. A woman's love stands the test of time, logic and circumstances. If we have chosen our man, then we will follow him into fire and water. Even if your friends tell you that he is worthless and no matter how many times he put an end to your relationship, you will devote yourself to him. And you expect the same attitude from him. But this is unrealistic. nine0003
Men love differently. And whatever it is, a man's love is also love. And if you understand exactly how a man loves, then you will know if he really gives you all of himself. How does a man who loves a woman behave? Can you find out if he loves you? - Yes. Usually a loving man does three things.
If a man loves, he declares
Pay attention to how your lover introduces you to other people: his friends, business partners or relatives. How a loving man behaves: psychology is such that he first of all seeks to emphasize your commonality and even your belonging to him. nine0003
If he says, for example: “This is my girlfriend/baby/beloved”, in one word he gives you a title that goes beyond the notorious friend zone, then he loves you.
If a man calls you "his", then he really thinks so and informs everyone about it, because his intentions are serious and pure.
If he introduces you as a girlfriend or just calls you by your first name, be sure: you are just his girlfriend. In the depths of your soul, you yourself guess about it, right? nine0003
As soon as he gives you a title, you immediately understand that the man is making a statement. He declares his intentions towards you. This is a very clear sign of a loving man.
If a man loves, he provides
As soon as a man in love claims his rights to you, he behaves accordingly and immediately starts earning exclusively for you. After all, you are now his family. The primary purpose of a man is to be a breadwinner and earner. A man who tries to impose on you the idea of equality and financial independence is just fooling your head. A man who is able to provide for his woman and children always feels more important than the one who lives for himself. nine0003
If you feel that he does less for your relationship than he could - this is not a man, or rather, this is not your man. Of course, today one often hears from some men that modern women are somehow self-serving, almost extortionists. And often we have to prove all the sincerity of our feelings, without pretending to anything. But in fact, this is such a trick created by men without serious intentions: so they can save their money and get everything they need from a woman. What if your man has no money? Still, he will do everything to meet your needs. He will help in everything and try for you. And how does a loving man behave in bed? He cares not only about himself, but also about your orgasms, he provides you with pleasure. nine0003
If a man loves, he protects
If a man loves you, it can be seen from the way he behaves: he will crush anyone who dares to think badly of you and hurt you somehow. If you have been offended, a loving man will go and stand up for you and your honor. Any self-respecting man will protect what belongs to him. If, on a terrible story about how someone insulted you, he only shakes his head or even gets angry, but does not take any action, something is wrong. When a man loves, most likely, you don’t even want to talk about the fact that someone offended you, because he will go to sort it out, and we all understand that this can end badly. nine0003
Of course, defense is not only the use of brute force. A man who truly loves is protective in other ways: he may give valuable advice or volunteer to do something that, in his opinion, is not safe for you. He will never send you to the store late in the evening or walk the dog, he will do everything himself, even if he has not slept for more than two days.

Study: love and photography -
as a man takes pictures, so does he love

Text: Alexandra Stepanova
Who loves photo shoots the most? Of course girls. And who treats shooting with anxiety? Obviously, men. What to do if you want to come to the shooting with your beloved man who looks at this question with great reluctance? This and other questions are answered by professional photographer Alexandra Stepanovova. nine0003
It's not easy for a photographer to deal with men. They avoid the camera because of embarrassment and fear of looking stupid, although they try to hide it carefully. Why men are afraid and shy is another topic. Today is about love!
Photographing people for a long time, I noticed: if a man sincerely loves and appreciates his woman, he will come with her to the photo shoot. The priority of the lover is to make the chosen one happy. And for the sake of this, you can pose a little).
All in the name of Love, to see a happy smile. A loving man will endure and try: someone quickly gets involved in the process, perceiving shooting as a game, someone will sincerely try, showing the strength of masculinity.
I have my own secret of how to shoot shy men - I use long shots, shoot from the back, minimal staging, shooting with elements. I explain all this at the beginning so that the man relaxes and knows that close attention will not be directed to him. And as practice shows, it helps. Men during the shooting begin to feel at ease, and at the end of the session they even sincerely respond to requests. And run, and jump, and just hug like no one sees. nine0003
This simple approach has always worked for me. My holy rule: you don’t need to force anyone to shoot, you won’t get easy and flying shots. By facial expressions and postures, everything will become clear.
I shot a lot of couples, and the process of shooting immediately shows how a man treats a woman. If he is rude, does not want to do anything, is dissatisfied, then it is difficult to talk about respect and love for his family and girlfriend.
Yes, there are men who are not ready for memorable shootings.
