We, women like to overthink even the smallest of details because it’s simply in our nature to always look for the best solution or those hidden clues that will tell us more about the matter in question. But, when it comes to our love life, this is not that a good trait to have.
If you overthink every single move of the guy you’re dating at the moment, chances are that you will fool yourself into thinking something that is not true at all. It looks like this:
I think he’s falling in love with me because he always tries hard to make me laugh, but maybe he doesn’t because guys always do that…He might be falling in love with me, but I’m not yet one hundred percent sure of it because he has been acting strangely when he called me this morning…
There are millions of reasons why a guy could act strangely, and this doesn’t have to immediately mean that he’s not into you. Perhaps his dog has pissed him off or his neighbor. So, overthinking is a big No when it comes deciphering whether he’s falling head over heels for you or not.
But, there’s one thing you can do which will surely tell you whether he is falling for you or not, and that is observing his specific body language and actions which are scientifically proved to be repeated by every single guy that is in the state of falling in love with you.
So, instead of focusing on all of those confusing thoughts and emotions, just pay attention to whether your guy exhibits these 16 signs because if he does, you can be sure that your guy is on his way to become deeply, madly, and crazily in love with you.
1. He tries hard not to screw things up
He is always cautious not to say something stupid in front of you because he genuinely cares about what you’re going to think about him. He might delete contacts of other girls because he is solely focused on winning you, and he is determined to do everything he can, so that you notice his efforts. You see, when guys fall in love, they become worried about your perception of them, and that is the biggest sign of his affection toward you.
2. He contacts you first
You never have to worry whether he will contact you because he does it regularly. He contacts you first because he can’t stop thinking about you when you’re not there with him. He always contacts you first because he is dying to hear your voice even for a second because it brings him joy and relaxes him.
3. He gazes at you a lot
Ever noticed him gazing at you, so that you start wondering if you have something on your face? When a guy starts falling for you, he will gaze at you A LOT because he likes what he sees, and he simply can’t stop looking at it.
He will look at your eyes with admiration because the eyes are the windows to the soul, and this is a clear sign that he’s in love with your interior (your soul) as well as the exterior.
4. He introduces you to his friends
When it comes to introducing you to his friends, guys are really sensitive about it because they never, ever introduce a girl to their friends that they are not one hundred percent sure about. So, if he’s already introduced you to his friends, you can be sure that he’s fallen for you madly, and he wants them to see what a beautiful, smart lady he found.
5. He also wants you to meet his family
Yup, he will also want you to meet his family for the same reason he wants you to meet his friends. He wants to share his joy with them and let them know how happy he is with you. In his eyes, you are a jewel that he needs to show to everyone around him because he’s bursting with happiness.
6. He wants to spend as much as time as possible with you
A guy who is falling for you hard will never make excuses about your date night or similar because he will want to spend as much as time as possible with you. If he’s spending most of his free time with you, he has lost his mind for you because he feels utterly happy and blessed with you, and your presence attracts him.
7. He tries hard to make you laugh
I’m sure you noticed by now how guys turn into comedians in front of girls they like. It is because it’s in their blood to make you smile. Seeing a girl smile means they are capable of making you happy which is their ultimate goal. And if he’s trying hard to see that smile of yours, believe him that he’s doing everything in his power to make you happy and have you notice his affection toward you.
8. He wants to help you with everything
If you need a glass of water, he’s the one getting up and bringing it. If you need to carry something, he’s the one doing it. If you need help fixing something, again he’s the one helping you or doing it for you. He wants to make you sure that you’re safe and sound and nothing bothers you. He does that because your happiness means his own.
9. He values your opinion
You know that he’s fallen for you when he always asks you for your opinion on something. And no matter what it is about and no matter what you say, he will value your opinion either way. It is because he’s interested in what you’re thinking, and he appreciates your every single word and thought. He wants you to know that he’s there, ready to listen and value everything you say.
10. He talks about the future with you
Talking about the future is a huge sign of being in love because by it, you’re telling the other person that you want them now, tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, and the day after…He’s telling you that he wants you now, and he will want you in the future. That is why he talks about future plans with you. He wants to make sure that he’ll never lose you.
11. He makes efforts to surprise and impress you
Instead of making excuses, he’s making efforts. He brings you flowers; surprises you with a nice, heartwarming text message; surprises you with buying something you always wanted; surprises you with romantic dinners and similar. It doesn’t have to be big. The only thing that matters is that he’s making an effort. And if he does, know that he is definitely crazy for you.
12. He touches you often
Guys love to touch girls they have deep affection for. And I don’t mean being pushy while doing it. The biggest difference between a guy that is falling in love with you and the one that is only interested in getting into your pants is in the way of touching. A guy who is falling in love with you will touch you lightly (your shoulders, arms), and he will do it very often. He will never be intrusive in any kind of way.
13. He’s eager to try new things with you
Whether it is a new hobby, sport, event, food, game or something else, he will be eager to do it because the idea of spending time with you and trying new things appeals him a lot. He appreciates every proposal of yours and can’t wait to spend exciting time with you.
14. He compliments you a lot
When guys fall in love, complimenting is one of the most used signs for expressing their admiration of you. He compliments your hairstyle, your sense of fashion, your personality. He tells you how beautiful you are and so on.
He compliments you a lot and not because he forces himself to do so. You see it in his eyes that he’s genuine when giving you a compliment and that his intentions are solely pure.
15. He loves the weird side of you
You can be yourself with him because he loves all of your quirks and flaws. In a nutshell, he loves the weird side of you (those things that are characteristic of you). And only a guy who is totally falling for you will exhibit his admiration for your weird side as well because that is what makes him attracted to you in the first place. He loves you for who you really are.
16. He goes out of his way to make you happy
He always puts your needs and happiness before his own. It is because in his mind, this should be so. In his mind, he is the one who needs to protect you from any harm and make you smile because he loves you.
And he will go out of his way to prove that to you. He will carry you in his arms after a night in heels. He will give you his hoodie when it’s cold (even if it means him freezing). He will do anything to keep you. And that is how you know he has fallen for you.
P.S. If your guy doesn’t exhibit all of the signs above at once, don’t be alarmed. Just give him some time, and make sure not to instantly jump to false conclusions. (And don’t forget to enjoy the time spent together).
