There’s the guy who’s into you, and then there’s the guy who’s falling for you — hard. Here’s how to tell that you’re dating a guy who’s on the latter side of the line and envisions you in his future.
Although it is generally known that not all men are touchy-feely beings and they don’t usually let their feelings out in the open, it’s not that impossible to figure out what they are thinking. That’s right, and they are not as secretive as you feel.
It’s their body language and the way they behave that gives them away. If you look at them more closely and pay attention to the way they behave, you won’t have any problems in reading the signs that he’s head over heels in love with you.
When a guy likes you, it can go down in one of two ways: he can be shy and try to hide it, but his nerves and the fact that he loses himself in your presence will give him away in an instant; or he doesn’t have to be shy yet for some reason, he likes you but hides it.
In both scenarios, falling in love with you is not something he’ll admit right away. He’ll wait for that love to turn out to be true love before he realizes it to anyone.
If this is the case, he’ll send all kinds of signals to make you aware that he likes you, and if you react to his bait, he’ll go all in. He just needs to be sure that you want him back and that you’re the one he’s been waiting for.
The bottom line is that when a guy is falling for you hard, you’ll definitely know it, but only if you pay proper attention to the way he behaves. On the other hand, if you’re still not sure what his feelings for you are, read these little yet sure-fire signs that he is really into you.
If you’re looking for dating advice, this is the best you’ll get!
1. HE TALKS ABOUT YOU TO OTHER PEOPLE IN HIS LIFE.
Before you even met his friends or family, they knew about you and how excited he was about having you in his life. The introduction seemed natural since they’ve heard so much about you, they almost felt like they knew you already.
2. HE CONSIDERS YOU BEFORE MAKING DECISIONS.
If he wants to do something with you on the weekend, he’ll first ask if you’re keen instead of just going ahead. The same applies to things that are part of his life, such as getting a dog or taking a holiday overseas. You’re an essential part of his life, so he’ll check in with you first.
3. HE’S SHARED HIS EMAIL/FACEBOOK PASSWORD WITH YOU.
No, not because you asked for it. You needed to send an email, or you couldn’t log onto Facebook, so he gave you his password without worrying about it or making a big deal about you looking at his messages. This is a good sign that he’s got nothing to hide and will share private things with you.
4. HE WANTS TO KNOW DETAILS.
He’s not just curious about your life and day at the office. He’ll go one step further by wanting to know details about you — what you’re passionate about, what makes you angry, what drives you, and even how your hairdresser got your hair dip-dyed to look so gorgeous. There’s nothing about your life that sounds boring to him. He wants to know everything about you.
5. HE SHARES HIS PASSIONS.
He loves riding his bicycle early on Saturday mornings and invites you to go along. He opens up about his life-long dreams and wants you by his side for the journey. When someone shares what makes them feel alive with you, they’re opening up their most vulnerable and valued parts. It’s an act of trust.
6. He makes future plans with you
He’ll commit to you and make plans with you. Commitment is the last piece of the puzzle in a relationship. When you get your guy to commit to you, you can be sure that your love will last forever. You can be positive that your love life has taken the right turn.
First, you start with little things, such as getting him to fulfill his promises and make small plans for the immediate future, like where to go for dinner. Later on, that dinner turns into a concert, the concert turns into a short trip to the country, and so on.
7. He notices things about you that others don’t
This is the easiest way to tell if a guy likes you and the tell-tale sign that he’s falling for you hard. He notices things about you that other people fail to see. These could be sweet things, but it could be your flaws, too.
To him, it doesn’t matter. To him, whatever you do differently and whatever you do that makes you unique, he adores.
8. He spends all of his free time with you
He can never get sick of you. He wants to spend all of his free time with you, yet at the same time, he doesn’t want you to get tired of him, so when you need space, he will gladly give it to you. You don’t have to make unique plans to “lure” him to your place.
You don’t have to mention sex or romance. He’ll be there even if you just veg on the couch for a movie night with a bowl of popcorn and nothing more.
9. He doesn’t notice other girls
His eyes are fixated only on you. He doesn’t need to go on Instagram to search for hot girls to follow. He doesn’t need to search for random girls on Facebook or in real life just to have them as backups.
He has you, and you are more than enough for him. Seeing you, touching you, and being close to you every day is all he needs – all he needs to fall in love with you even more.
10. He tells you he loves you
It’s the final stage, the phrase that is the easiest to feel but the hardest one to say out loud. Sure, some guys use this when they badly want to get a girl in bed, when they don’t mean it just to get what they want. That said, if the guy you’re with is so into you that he’s prepared to make himself vulnerable by saying these three words, you can be sure the deal is sealed.
11. He treats you with respect
Respect should be present without even mentioning it. Since there are so many relationships where there isn’t mutual respect, this becomes a must if you’re entering into a romance with someone.
You’d be surprised how many women get blinded by love and completely ignore the fact that the man is not showing any respect toward them. Later on, they hope he will change and gain respect, but that rarely happens.
Anyway, if the man in your life shows interest in your life overall, it means he cares about what you’re up to, which leads to the conclusion that he respects you enough to be involved in your life.
12. He helps you become the best you can be
You are not worried when you’re with him. You don’t think about all the things that can go wrong. He simply brings out the best in you, and his presence makes you the best version of yourself.
When you think about it, the point of every relationship is to push each other to be better and smarter. If your partner doesn’t challenge you and inspire you to be the best you can be, then he doesn’t care, does he?
This means he isn’t that interested in you or what becomes of you.
13. He stays in your life and not just on the bad days
He wants to be a part of your world and not just in the good times, but through the bad times, too. If he’s only pretending to love you, his fake love will be revealed through his behavior.
For instance, when you’re not feeling alright, he will move away instead of asking you if everything is okay. When you’re dealing with some kind of a crisis, he will pretend like everything is okay so that he doesn’t have to be your support.
But this man – a man who is falling for you hard – is there even when you’re falling apart. He is willing to make sacrifices and risk himself being unhappy only to be by your side and protect you when you need him the most.
14. There is a secure emotional connection
Physical attraction is always one of the first things a man is looking for in a woman. Usually, these relationships enter the honeymoon phase, and when it’s over, the relationship ends. While there is a possibility that true love comes from a physical connection, it’s not that often.
If you’re not willing to risk your heart getting broken only to see if he’s going to develop deeper feelings for you, step away right at the beginning.
For example, if a man is looking for a reason to get close to you while there isn’t a chance of physical contact, take it as a good sign. Based on his emotional experience with you, he has come to the conclusion that he wants to spend more time with you because you’re interesting.
There is an emotional connection between the two of you, and he wants to see where it goes.
15. He compromises
Making compromises means being unselfish. Who wouldn’t want everything to go their way, especially in a relationship? Think about it, you want to go out, he has to come with you. You want to watch a flick, he has to watch it with you. Or you simply do everything he wants to do.
Anyhow, that approach to a relationship is not healthy. So, if you notice that your man is meeting you halfway, especially when you’re dealing with situations he’s stubborn about, be absolutely positive he has feelings for you.
True love is selfless.
16. He is your best friend
He is a person you have so much fun with, and at the same time, you have strong feelings for him. Before you met him, you didn’t know it is possible to have romance and friendship all wrapped up in one person; you always divided the two.
You enjoy being around him, and he loves being around you. You do stuff together, not because you have to, but because any errand or obligation is more fun and more relaxed when he’s around. That’s the man you’ve been looking for; don’t let him go.
17. Your values are the same
You are different people, and you like different things, but the core is the same. You value the same things, so your life goals are the same. When you have something like that in common, it’s easier to accomplish these goals because you’re doing it together.
Because of the same core values, falling in love is the next logical step. So, if it hasn’t happened yet, it will happen very soon.
18. He makes you happy
And the most important of all the signs – you are happy. Simply put, without any explanations, you just are. Perhaps you’ve been searching your whole life for that feeling, for that man who makes you feel like that.
Now that you’ve met him, you’re no longer searching, but you’re living what you dreamt of. He perhaps hasn’t said he loves you yet, but it doesn’t mean it’s not true.
If he does all the things from this list or most of them, and he says he loves you, then you have no reason to worry – you’ve landed a jackpot relationship!
