Love can be a different experience for many different kinds of people. Some people fall in love so easily while others can struggle with the concept. Some people share a love that is easy while some others have a love that needs some work. However, there are some universal constants in the world of love that are persistent in all relationships.

It is common knowledge that girls will tend to have more empathy and be more open about their feelings that boys are. Men often try to display a rough and rugged exterior, an impenetrable shell of emotion. But when men start getting deep into a relationship, things start to change. You notice things that are different about him and this is perfectly normal behavior.

Here are the 10 things that happen to a guy when the relationship starts getting real.

1. He Starts Introducing You to Everyone Important in His Life

If you start becoming a central part of his life, it is only natural for him to want you to be included in his small circle of loved ones. He introduces you to his siblings, his best friends, and maybe even his parents. He’s confident about who you are as a girlfriend, and he’s sure you’ll charm all of his family and friends the way that you did him.

2. He’s Interested About the Plans You Have For Yourself

He wants to know about what you envision for yourself in your future and whether he has a place in it. He doesn’t want to outright force himself into your life and he respects all the plans and goals that you have set for yourself. But he’s hoping that he somehow fits in the picture of your future somehow.

3. He Shows That He Cares About You

He’s more gentle and caring than ever before. He’s more intimate physically and emotionally. He likes to hold your hand when he notices you’re feeling anxious. He’ll offer you a hug when you’re feeling down. He’ll look after you when you’re sick, or he’ll bring you your favorite cupcake if he knows you’re having a bad day. He’ll start doing even the most little things to make you happy just to show you that he cares.

4. He Makes an Effort to Get to Know More About Your Family

He understands that your family is important to you and he wants to make an effort to show you that they are important to him too. He tries to get to know more about what life is like for you at home and he also tries his best to make your parents like him. He wants your family to know that he’s actually good enough to be in a relationship with you.

5. He Allows Himself to be More Vulnerable With You

He opens up to you a whole lot more. He reveals more and more about himself that he usually wouldn’t reveal to other people. He’s opening himself up to the risks of heartbreak and rejection, but that doesn’t matter to him because you’re actually worth the risk. He’s okay with the thought of getting hurt so as long as it means he gets a chance to be with you.

6. He’s Willing to Go Out on Vacations With You

It’s a big deal to go on a vacation as a couple for the first time. It means you’re willing to trust each other while exploring unfamiliar territories. It goes to show that you’re willing to be adventurous and spontaneous with each other. It also shows that he no longer cares about what other people think of you being together. Things are getting serious and all that matters are what the both of you think of the situation.

7. He’s More Open to Conversations About the Future

He used to avoid the talk all the time. He always used to say that you’re just having fun for the moment and that the future isn’t really important yet. It was more casual for him back then. Now though, he’s willing to have that talk. He wants to lock things down and he wants to envision a future for himself with you right by his side.

8. He’s More Financially Conscious Now

He actually makes an effort to start saving money to prepare for the life you’re going to share together. Relationships can get expensive and he understands that. While he doesn’t want to scare you off by committing himself a little too much, there’s never anything wrong with preparing some money just in case you guys decide to tie things down right?

9. He Trusts You With His Time, Thoughts, and Emotions

No man is an island, but a man will struggle with the thought of being dependent on others. He likes to be independent, he likes to feel strong. He wants to feel like he can handle everything on his own… that is until he met you. He has now let his guard down, and he devotes more of himself to you because he understands that you are a vital piece to the puzzle that completes him.
