You started seeing a great guy, and things are going well. But since he hasn’t officially asked you to be his girlfriend or said those three little words yet, you constantly find yourself wondering, “Is he falling in love me?”
Sometimes, even when a man has strong feelings for you, he won’t come right out and say it. But even so, if he’s falling for you (no matter how slowly), he’ll give off subtle signs that he loves you:
Look for these 11 undeniable signs he’s falling for you:
1. You’ve known each other for a while.
You both just “click,” and neither of you can get enough of each other. If it feels like you’ve known each other for a long time, this is a good sign!
If your man wants to know everything about your intellect, creativity, and passion, and he actively tries to discover the deepest parts of who you are, it’s a sign that he’s totally hooked on you.
2. He brings out the best in you.
When you’re with him, you feel really good and don’t feel stuck in your head all that often. You like how he makes you feel and, more importantly, you like how you show up in the relationship when you’re with him (and how he does, too).
3. He stays in touch with you.
When you discuss your relationship with him, he listens and really “gets” you. Instead of giving you the silent treatment when he’s upset or angry, he chooses to openly talk with you. You don’t have to read between the lines because he always communicates his feelings.
4. His body language speaks loudly.
Even if you’re dating someone who’s the silent type, you can tell how a man feels about you when you pay attention to his body language.
Whether he initiates a secret smile across a crowded bar, reaches out to hold your hand in the car, or hangs out in the kitchen while you cook, his subtle actions can tell you that he’s falling in love with you.
5. He’s thoughtful and generous.
While he might not shower you with romantic gestures like roses and candy, he steps up where it really matters and remembers the little things without you having to ask.
Maybe he bought your favorite power bars because he noticed you were out or spontaneously cooked dinner because he knew you had a hard workday.
These thoughtful gestures show that he’s thinking about how you feel, which means that he’s being the attentive and loving partner who you deserve.
6. You feel a genuine connection between you.
When you feel connection, he feels it, too. You can find common ground and build upon it to create your own special bond.
When you’re together, you can be your wacky, awesome self — he accepts you without judgment.
7. He keeps you in the front of his mind — and makes sure you know it.
Whether he’s at work, spending time with his friends, or anywhere else without you, he’ll text you during a free moment just to let you know that he’s thinking of you.
When a guy can’t get you out of his head, he’s likely falling in love with you.
8. He’s both your lover and your best friend.
He’s your favorite person to be around, and you’re his favorite, too! Before you met him, you didn’t know that you could have so much fun with someone and still have such strong love for them. But whatever it is about him that makes you light up, everything is better when you’re together.
9. His values are similar to yours.
While you might have different tastes in the little things, like music or food, you both have the same life values.
When you’re on the same page as your partner about your core values, falling in love is much easier, and your shared values lead to a smoother relationship.
10. He supports your dreams.
Whether you both have a career or one of you is in a life transition, is he able to support you when responsibilities and commitments keep you apart?
If so, he’s proving his love for you.
His flexibility and support for your dreams shows that he’s committed to you and has your back.
11. Your pillow talk is deep.
Do you love to lie in bed with him talk about the future? Do you both treasure the moments when you look into each other’s eyes?
When your pillow talk is deep, you know that what you have together is real.
If he loves you, he’ll show up for you in the ways that you need him to. This is a good sign that he’s falling in love you, even if he hasn’t said “I love you” just yet.
