Are you with a guy and feeling a strong connection to him but wondering if he feels the same? How do you know that he cares for you the way you care for him?

How To Tell If a Guy Is Falling in Love With You?

How To Tell If a Guy Is Falling in Love With You?

Finding a guy who is into you is more complicated than it sounds. The reasons behind a relationship can differ.

Whereas you think you both are falling in love, he might not feel the same. So what are the signs a man is falling in love with you? How would you know that he is at the point of being so in love that he would do anything for you?

When does a man realize he’s in love? Here’s how you can tell he is falling for you. 

#1 He Wants to Help You

If he is always offering to help you out when something goes wrong, that is a clear sign that a man is falling for you. He takes pleasure in being your superhero.

Fixing things for you makes him happy and content. He feels well accomplished to help you change your tire and fix the sink pipes. 

Many women are becoming independent and are not reliant on men’s finances. Although men appreciate that form of stability from a woman, they like to know that you need them.

He wants to see that he can provide and protect you somehow. That provision and protection can be financial, emotional, or physical.

#2 He Treats you with Respect

If a man doesn’t treat you with respect, he doesn’t love you. A guy who loves you would treat you with the utmost respect. In his eyes, you would be his queen.

Does he shout at you every time he is mad? Does he use obscene words to describe you? That is not respectful to you or the relationship.

Also, does he go out with girls even after you both have established a relationship? If so, he is disrespecting you, which is a warning sign. Plus, that is embarrassing to you. He is not in love with you if he doesn’t have respect for you.

#3 He Compliments You a Lot

Every time you go out, he makes you feel pretty. Does he over-exaggerate how the clothes fit on you? Does he notice the color change of your hair?

These are consistent yet not overwhelming compliments. A man who does this leaves you feeling on top of the world, and that is how he wants you to feel. This is an early sign that he is in love with you.

#4 He Meets you Halfway (Plans)

His views are strong, yet he meets you halfway if you oppose. He compromises for you. For example, before meeting you, he hated going to the beach because he saw a shark attack.

Yet you love going to the beach, so he meets you halfway by going to the beach with you but staying on the sand.

Not all girls would make a guy do that, only the one he loves. It might be because he doesn’t want to lose you and is falling in love with you. He’d rather face his fears with you than you doing what he fears with someone else. Love can do that to a person.

#5 He Makes You Feel at Home

His home is your home. He is okay with you leaving your stuff at his house after an overnight stay. And he doesn’t kick you out after having sex.

He treats you like a wife in his home and not a cheap hook-up or stranger. He asks your opinion on what to buy to decorate and includes you in his home renovation plans.

#6 He Makes Time to See You Often

You’re dating, and he has an obsession with seeing you often. This is a good sign unless he is toxic or a serial killer. Yet generally, a man who has no problem making time to see you is in love.

If he calls you, making plans to go out very often, he enjoys his time with you. And it’s not because he wants to have sex each time after the date.

#7 He Listens When You Talk

Is he is attentive when you talk to him? Does he make eye contact? Does he engage in the conversation? He may be trying to get to know you. The only reason a guy wants to get to know you is that he likes you a lot. 

If a guy is only using you, he wouldn’t care about your little brother’s fever. Nor would he care that you spilled your coffee this morning because he doesn’t love you. The fact that you want to share every detail of your day would be thrilling to a guy who loves you. 

He remembers when you tell him what you like and surprises you with it on special occasions. If he can remember something you told him on your first date, you are one lucky girl. Few guys do, and it is not like the guys who don’t aren’t into you, but an attentive man adds value to a relationship.

#8 He Texts you Often

He texts you often. What does that mean? 

If he texts to the point of almost annoying you, then it is most likely because he is falling for you. Talking to you makes his day complete, so he texts you a lot. In this age of social media, texting has become very popular in dating. Making plans and talking about each other’s day is usually done through text. 

#9 He is a Perfect Gentleman

According to Glamour Magazine, self-improvement isn’t contingent on romantic love. But it can help. 

Most guys like to be on their best behavior when they meet someone they fall for. They do not want to mess up the relationship they’re building.

So have you noticed him being a little too kind? Does he like doing things for you? It may be because he has fallen in love and doesn’t want to mess up.

#10 He is Nervous Sometimes

Don’t take it as a turn-off if he is nervous around you. It could mean that he’s falling in love with you. His hands get sweaty around you, or you notice that every time you talk to him, he stutters or avoids prolonged eye contact.

If you see him acting like this around you, he is nervous because he has fallen in love.

11 Early Signs He Is Falling In Love With You

Are you wondering if you are wasting your time with this guy? It’s been five months of seeing each other. “How do I know if he is in love with me?” Here are some early signs he is falling for you.

11 Early Signs He Is Falling In Love With You

#1 He Wants to Spend Time with You

Time spent together bonds people. If he is eager to be around you, then he is a keeper. A guy who values your company and presence considers you special to him. 

#2 Has No Problem Taking You Out to Public Places

A guy who has an issue with going out to places like restaurants, parks, etc., with you is a guy to stay away from.

This is a total red flag. Evidently, he is trying to hide you, but what is he hiding you from? It could be his girlfriend or even his wife. A guy who is uncomfortable with people seeing him with you isn’t in love with you. 

If he is falling in love with you, he would want to show you off to the world. Does he say he wants to remain private to avoid interference in the relationship?

Don’t take that excuse. To prevent outside parties from getting in, he should act like he is in a relationship with you. That’s how other people will know that he is off the market.

#3 His Smile

Does he smile every time he sees you? How happy is he to see you?

A guy in love with you would smile a lot around you. There is a little reminder that goes off in one’s head that says, “how did I get this person? I am so lucky.” With that thought usually comes a smile.

So if you find yourself catching him smiling at random times when he is with you, he may be thinking those thoughts.

#4 You Are Soul-Mates

As impossible as it may seem, some people meet, and they click. Everything is in sync, and it feels like you have found your soul mate.

This is an early sign he is in love with you. If you feel that connection with him, he may feel the same. Sometimes overthinking clouds judgment.

Although you see signs he is slowly falling for you, you doubt it. Women like to hear what a person feels about them. Not knowing for sure makes them feel vulnerable. 

#5 He’s Introduced You to His Friends

His friends knew about you before you even met them. This is a green flag. If you just met his friends and they know who you are, that means that he talked to them about you, even more than once.

#6 Has No Problem Introducing You to His Family

You are not a hidden secret if he wants to introduce you to his family, particularly his parents. He is happy to be with you, and bringing you to meet his parents, means that he is serious about you.

Many men don’t do this because they know that the relationship wouldn’t last. Or they may be dating many people. So if he does this, consider yourself unique and wife material.

#7 His Body Language 

A person’s body language tells a lot about how they feel. Pay attention to how he is around you. How often does he make eye contact with you? Does he show you physical affection?

A guy in love with you would have no issue with holding your hand or being intimate in the form of a kiss. Does he put his hands around your shoulders or hold your hand when walking? His body language shows that he loves you. He is communicating his love to you by physical touch.

If it isn’t awkward when you are around and you feel wanted and not a burden, he loves you. 

#8 He Doesn’t Play Games

Has he expressed that he doesn’t like you going out with other guys even though you’re still at the dating stage?

Then he is serious about a relationship with you. If your man loves you, he will do everything in his power to keep you to himself.

A guy who doesn’t care about who you see while you both get to know each other is playing games with you.

He doesn’t mind because he doesn’t see you in his future. So he’s not going to be mad if you talk to other guys.

There may be a hidden agenda behind him wanting to date you. If a guy sees you as his future wife, he wouldn’t be okay with you seeing other men. 

#9 You Catch Him Giving You “The Look”

The way a man looks at you can tell you a lot. If you ever catch him staring at you or glancing while smiling, that is a good sign that he is into you.

He can’t believe what he has sitting next to him and can stare at you for hours.

Ever catch him staring? You say “what,” and he says “nothing.” If that is so, he is thinking these things and doesn’t want to express what he feels. He is not being deceptive.

Reading Suggestion: Why do guys kiss with their eyes open?

Not all men like to express their feelings through words because the male species wishes to seem invincible.

Society considers expressing feelings to a woman like that as weak or, in modern terms, “being a simp.”

#10 He’s Not Scared to Be Himself Around You

If he is his goofy, pure self around you, it is because he is comfortable with you.

He doesn’t need to act fake around you. You appreciate who he is, and guys crave that. They like it when the one they love accepts them. 

#11 He’s Willing to Change for You

A man willing to change for you is in love with you. Even if it means stepping outside of his comfort zone.

His bad habits or negative ways are now things of the past.

11 Signs He Is Falling For You HARD

11 Signs He Is Falling For You HARD

Falling hard for someone isn’t a myth. It happens more often than you think. If you are thinking, “Is this guy falling for me?” “Does he love me the way I love him?”

Or it could be that you don’t like the person. But you realize that he is doing some strange things and want to know if it may be because he is falling for you.

Either way, here are some signs he is falling for you hard.

#1 He is open with you about his past (including bad habits)

If he does this, it could mean that he’s a straightforward guy. Especially if it is early on in forming a serious relationship.

He knows what he wants and is putting his cards on the table while being honest about the negative.

He hates to hide things from you, and he doesn’t like the thought of stuff from his past shocking you. Don’t take his honesty for granted. 

He might bring up that he snores in his sleep or chews with his mouth open, just so you know.

By him feeling comfortable to tell you these things means that he is into you. He sees a future with you, so he believes you need to know about his past before moving forward.

#2 He Wants to Protect You

You are important to him. He does whatever it takes to protect you.

If he cares about where you are or why you haven’t texted, he may be feeling that you are lying hurt somewhere. He may think that something terrible has happened.

According to marriage counselor Harville Hendrix Ph.D, “Women want to be with someone who they feel safe with at all times.

They want to say, ‘With you, I feel safe. I don’t have to be defensive. I know that when I’m around you, I’m going to be okay.’”

#3 He Does Everything You Ask Him to Do

If he is your go-to fella when everything goes wrong, then he is into you. If you can call him two in the morning and he has no problem coming to you then what are you waiting for, marry this man!

Reading Suggestion: THIS is what he thinks when you don’t text him back

A man who treats you well and goes out of his way to make you happy is rare. It sounds like a dream even. 

#4 He Loves How Weird You Are

He loves what makes you different and when you act weird. If he finds your insecurities beautiful, it is because he is in love with you.

When a guy falls in love with your personality and your vibe, the little things that make you unique would be beautiful to him.

A guy who is crazy about you would love you without conditions. If he degrades your body but says he loves you, then he is lying.

According to Glamour Magazine, your quirks should amuse him. He loves your chocolate-is-a-food-group approach to nutrition.

Or he may find it funny that you call your bestie to watch Netflix “together.” Give to a man who sees eccentricities for what they are. Your eccentricities are the stuff that makes you deliciously you.

#5 Your Sex Life Is off the Hook

Sex isn’t everything in a relationship, yet it plays a part in making it work out. If your guy enjoys your intimate time and you fulfill all his sexual needs, he is most likely to not cheat on you.

This is because you are the one that gets his body, and the way you do it with him is.

He wouldn’t want to mess up by sleeping with someone to lose that genuine connection.

Yet the truth is, if a guy is in love with you, how great you think your sexual game is doesn’t matter.

He is in love, so anything you do to him is sexy because he finds you attractive and wants you. Your sex life is all dependent on your love life. If there is no love, then intimacy will not be off the hook.

#6 He Only Has Eyes for You

If your man only has eyes for you, he is one worth marrying. He is serious about you, and if he shows these signs, he’s falling in love with you.

Don’t take him for granted if he doesn’t flirt with other girls and sleep around. He has an interest in pursuing you. Few guys are this loyal in an era of partying and hooking up.

#7 He Wants to Commit

Commitment is another one of the undeniable signs that he is in love with you.

If he signals a commitment to you early on in the relationship, he is a keeper.

He is loyal to you even though you are not in a serious relationship. He may even be moving to make the relationship official.

You may want to take it slow, and he respects that but knows that he is in love with you, so he commits either way.

#8 He Writes About You

Whether it is in the form of a song or poem, if he writes about you, he is into you. He wants to express his feelings for you in this way.

Of course, we don’t want you to break up. But if it happens, pay attention to the make-up.

It’s the best time to know how a guy, particularly a singer or poet, feels for you. You can’t say if it isn’t shared, but break-up songs show how people think.

#9 He Talks About a Future With You

A man who includes you in his plans for the future is a great sign he sees coming times with you.

He is thinking of some significant events that would contribute to his future life.

He only involves you in it because he wants you to be there. It could be as big as building a home or discussing future baby names. 

#10 Avoids Arguing Over Small Things

For some couples, everything is an argument, from which curtains they should put up to where should they go to eat. That is not a healthy relationship.

A healthy relationship must involve compromise. If a guy is head-over-heels for you, he will avoid arguing with you. He wants you to be happy because that’s when he is happy.

A guy who considers you special to him will do anything to please you. So if that means going to Subway instead of McDonald’s for lunch, then he would.

This is because men usually don’t ponder on things like that the way women do. Women tend to stay mad for a while. If he can put his pride aside for a woman he loves, then he is one worth loving.

#11 He Gives You All His Attention

If his main focus is you and he wants to be with you any chance he gets, that is a good sign that he loves you. When a man cares about you, he tries to make you happy.

If you always have to ask him to spend time with you are pay more attention to you, he is not in love with you. You shouldn’t have to beg a man for attention because he will give it freely if he wants to.

When Does a Man Realize He’s In Love?

When Does a Man Realize He's In Love?

In a man’s subconscious mind, something clicks when he meets the one. He will know if he would like to spend the rest of his life with you.

According to Brittney McNamara from Teen Vogue magazine, “a new study found men actually fall in love quicker than women, and the reason could be biological.

A study of 172 college students found men reported falling in love earlier than women and expressing that sentiment first.”

Men are usually the ones to be sure of the person they want to date or marry.

They know it from the first time they see or meet a person. So how do men know when they are in love? What makes men fall in love with women? Here are 4 things that make a guy fall in love. 

1) Supportive even when he doesn’t have much

When you make him feel good, like a better person. Supporting him and giving him words of encouragement, and being proud of his success.

A woman who sticks by a man even when he is at his lowest makes her more attractive.

It assures him that she is not with him for his money. If someone is bringing you down and always making you feel like a terrible person, you tend to lose any feelings you have. 

2) You have beautiful features

As small-minded as it may seem, guys find girls attractive at the early stages because of how they look.

That is attractive to a guy because it is natural human behavior. Personality isn’t the first catch, although his thoughts may change as he gets to know you.

Whatever his definition of beauty is, he would find you attractive if you match that.

3) You share the same values 

According to Harini Natarajan, a Certified Emotional Intelligence Practitioner, “physical attraction, empathy, sexual compatibility, and emotional connection play a key role in making a man fall deeply in love with a woman.

Shared passions, core values, and a possibility of a future together further cement his love for the woman.”

You share the same values as he does, whether religious or not. A man looks for that in a woman.

4) You make him feel like your knight in shining armor. 

Men have a hero instinct. They love when a woman makes them feel they can do anything they put their minds to.

That makes a man feel good because you need him around. Some men like to show you how special you are by surprising you with gifts or taking you out.

They do it just to see that smile on your face. That is when he realizes he is in love.

The natural male instinct is to be the dominator, the protector, and the safe space for their girl. So if you make him feel this way, it contributes to how much he loves you. 

How do you know if a man is in love and realizes it? What would a guy do that would suggest that he realizes he is in love?

What Does Love Feel Like For a Man?

What Does Love Feel Like For a Man?

Ever wondered what does love feel like for a man? All you know is from a woman’s perspective, and you want to know how he sees you.

You’re curious to see if the same things that turn you on and make you fall for him, even more, are the same things that turn him on.

When it comes to love, men and women are not different. Both genders need to feel appreciated and supported. That is human psychology.

Men, like women, yearn beyond physical touch to fall in love. And the reason one falls in love is different because of preferences.

It can also be due to past experiences. Honesty, trust, and a fantastic personality are attributes that contribute to him falling in love with you.

Love is something that comes faster for a man than for a woman. It only lasts for a lifetime if it has a strong foundation.

Although men fall in love easier than women, men tend to fall out of love quicker. A man’s brain is different in that way.

Yet, when a man finds true love, a woman who ticks all his boxes to become his wife, he changes. You would find him showing you romantic gestures. He’ll consider you in everything he does, as small as opening the door for you. 

When a man falls deeper in love with you, this means that the connection you both share is on a deeper level. Does your man act like he is in love with you?

He may indeed be the one. There is no specific one hundred percent way to tell if he doesn’t verbalize it. Yet some signs can certainly hint he is in love with you.
