when a guy’s afraid of losing you, he gives gifts for no reason

When a man is deeply in love with a woman, he can decide to be giving her gifts for no reason. One of the reasons why a lot of men are not so generous in giving gifts to their partners is because they are not emotionally safe and they are afraid of breaking up.

A lot of men usually quote this,“ I don’t think I’ll be sending her gifts except on her birthdays, I don’t want a situation whereby I’ll spend all my money on her and she’ll still leave me for another dude. “

Giving you gifts always signifies that you’re a priceless asset to him and he doesn’t want to trade you for silver or gold. Whenever he gives you a gift, he maintains eye contact with you, watching you smile whenever he gives you a gift.

2. He always sources out time to be with you

We all know that quality time matters in a relationship. Lack of quality time will always lead to a crack in a relationship. Here, he doesn’t act like those in a regular relationship. He’s always breaking the bank to meet you, irrespective of the consequences of doing that.

You’d notice that he’s always the originator and the initiator of every activity you make together such as vacations, dates, etc.  A man who’s afraid of losing you would always have this feeling of insecurity. He’d be saying stuff to himself such as, “ I need to see my angel. I can’t risk losing her to any guy out there!! I need to give her maximum attention.”  A man who’s afraid of losing you will give you no breathing space, he may act like he’s obsessed with you.

He’ll never risk leaving you in that pain he found you in.  He’ll do everything to walk you out of the aisle of that pain.

His mind will be  “ I have other personal issues to fix, I guess I’d just have to leave her in that situation, I believe she’ll sort herself out “.

When you have challenges, he’ll be there to strategize with you and map out how things should go.

Wrapping Up

A relationship is all about investment. If you see a guy who’s fully devoted to your affairs and investing in you. then you need to stay glued to Him.  If he’s not showing all these signs, don’t just cut off the relationship! Give it some time for it to grow, don’t force it. It could be he’s passing through a challenge or planning to give you a surprise.

And you need to give him that room of feeling comfortable that he is not losing you. That you appreciate all his efforts and you want him to. And mind you, if you don’t want a guy at the beginning, don’t go accepting things from him, allowing him to spend all he has just to keep you when you know that, you never wanted him at all. Playing games with guys like this will leave them traumatized for the rest of their lives. So do the right thing and play safe.
