While there are definite signs that a man is in love with a woman, there are also signs that indicate a man is with you for reasons other than love.
It's easy to recognize when a man is attracted to a woman, but it is much more difficult to know if he's feeling love or a passing fancy.
1. You are a guest in his life, but not a permanent part of it
This is one of the main and most notorious signs that he doesn't see a future with you.
If his life were a house, would you have permission to access all the rooms? Or only certain ones? Do you feel uncertainty, or that something is missing in your relationship? These signals of false love are only further confirmed if he doesn't ever give you a straight answer when you talk about the future.
2. He talks about other women
Talking about other women on occasion is fine, but if he does it excessively when he is with you, this is a bad sign. Even though he isn't your property, if you are uncomfortable about the way he thinks or speaks about other women when he's with you, this is a definite sign that he doesn't love you.
3. You don't talk about intimacy
If you feel connected to him during intimate moments, but he seems distant or distracted, he is not fully focusing on you. He may be present physically, but not mentally. The deep connection couples need in order to build their relationship does not exist without both parties giving each other their full attention and affection. If you express your concerns about intimacy and he reacts negatively or refuses to talk about it, consider breaking things off.
4. He doesn't care about your comfort
If you've been with him for some time, but you still don't know what he loves about you, this indicates that he doesn't care to sincerely get to know you.
If you ask him what he likes about you, and it causes "tension" or "misunderstandings," there is a problem. You should feel comfortable talking to him about most everything, and he should be able to give you an answer to why he's attracted to you by now.
5. He never initiates things between the two of you
If you disappeared, would he notice? Would he be worried about you? Or would he just move on like nothing happened? If you are always the one who looks for him, the one who makes all the plans and the only one who is trying to make your relationship last, don't waste any more time with him.
A relationship takes work from both parties. If you spend your days thinking about why he treats you poorly, chances are he is not in love with you.
