6 Things Guys Only Say If They Mean It

4. When He Tells You “I Love You.”

OK, OK, OK, I know. This is one of the biggest “guy lies” out there for many women, so let me explain. (Perhaps this one should come with an asterisk.) In this case, you really need to listen to him when he says it. When a man professes his love for a woman, it has a different tone. I tell family members and very close friends that I love them, but it’s nothing compared to when I told my ex-girlfriend that I loved her. I felt it inside and I like to think that she felt that in my words. For anyone to profess their love, you — as the recipient — should feel it when it’s real. If it sounds like crap, it probably is. If it sounds sincere, chances are it is.
