Most men look at what they say as a sort of promise or commitment, even if it’s an emotionally based discussion.
So saying what seems like a simple three words can actually like a huge risk, promise or commitment to a guy.
Suddenly, it seems to take all your energy to assure (and reassure and reassure again) your man that you love him. ): It's normal and it's a good thing to be sensitive to the moods of your partner, but with an insecure man, his mood will be totally dependent on you.
He repeatedly tells you, his voice laced with incredulous wonder, that he can't believe you agreed to go out with him since you're so far out of his league. It's a refreshing change to feel so appreciated, especially if you've dated a few self-absorbed, insensitive jerks in the past.

There are all sorts of conventional images of men showing love through giving gifts: roses, chocolates, stuffed animals, cards, etc but these are not necessarily signs of that is an excellent gauge of his love for you: his time.
When a man spends more time with you and less with his family and friends, this is a very clear sign that he loves you.
