  • How I tell.

    By their actions. Pay attention to someone's actions, and I can tell the intention behind those actions. People's intentions can be pretty easy to read, when you look/watch them with clear & open eyes.

  • Actions speak louder than words.

  • I agree that actions speak louder than words but to me there are some that act and talk the walk but in the end all they wanted was a walk that lasts a few minutes and not one that lasts a lifetime. There is in my book no true way to tell for sure. Just remember to sustain from sex or any other commitment until you are sure there will be a commitment. Grow up and realize that nothing in life is a for sure thing.

  • Actions speaks louder then words, you can say I like them, or love them. If you treat them bad, and don't show it. You might as well not say it...

  • You don't. None of us know you, or him, so any feedback is just guessing.

    Answer by SWasson at 1:18 PM on Oct. 27, 2010

  • He will show you. He'll put you first, he'll consider your feelings, he'll do things just to make you smile. He'll remember things you tell him, he'll confide in you.
