does she love me

When you meet a woman you feel is absolutely incredible, you take the time to invest in her and get to know her better. Naturally, you want to know all about her, but you also want to know how she may be feeling about you. Although you spend time together and she is officially your girlfriend, you may be asking yourself, “Does she love me?” She may be sending certain signals, but they can get confusing. So let’s look for these signs to determine that she loves you.

1. She gets jealous

While you mention the name of a woman your girlfriend does not know, she gives you this strange look. She squints her eyes, purses her lips, and her tone suddenly changes. You can tell she is jealous.

Jealousy will show up when least expected. For example, you may be out, and your girlfriend sees you look at another woman who seems too hot to your liking. If your girl shows jealousy, she’s into you and wants you all to herself.

A woman who loves you will not want you to spend time with another woman, even if that’s your best friend. Being jealous isn’t always bad, especially when a girl loves you deeply. She will want to be the only girl to care for you. This includes cooking for you, celebrating your birthday, and traveling together.

2. She gives you small gifts

When a woman has feelings for you, she will want to show it to you in different ways. Don’t be surprised if a woman who loves you shows up on a date with small gifts for you. She wants you to know that even though you are not around, she thinks about you and that you mean a lot to her.

When your girlfriend travels for business or even with friends or family, she will bring you some souvenirs from her trips. It is a sign she has you on her mind even when she is away from you and busy with her own life, so the answer to the question “Does she love me?” is pretty obvious.

When she asks if you ate or how you slept, she wants to know that you are taking care of yourself when she is not around. A woman who cares for you will never have you doubting, “Does she love me?”.
