How To Easily Know When A Man Is In Love With You
Due to the different ways humans behave, it can be hard to tell if a man is falling in love with you. But, these signs will help you know.
Love is a wonderful feeling. Often, when it comes it catches you unawares and sweeps you right off your feet. Apart from showing up into your heart unexpectedly, you find love in unusual places too. It happens to people in different ways. However, as sweeping as love can be, it can be hard to read in others, especially at its infant stages. It may leave you wondering if the acquaintance beside you is just being nice or if those are signs a man is falling in love with you.
The signs may vary from person to person, but most times it is a combination of these signs below. So look out for them if you're trying to know if he is in love with you.
- Body language
Though this is hard to accurately read, it still might give you the first clue. When a man is in love with you, he might unconsciously adopt certain behaviours. Body language varies from person to person. This is what makes it hard to read. Some men become self-conscious around you. While others may become nervous anytime they see you. Generally, body languages include the way he mirrors your movements, eye movements, and leaning into you.
- He's cautious around you
At this point, he knows he's fallen for you and he's imagining the prospect of having something with you. So when he's around you you may notice a bit of cautiousness about him. He becomes careful with female friends around him. He's trying not to give you the wrong idea. He is very concerned about not screwing things up.
- Your needs are more important to him than his
This may be subtle and sometimes not. It is one of the most important signs that a man is developing deeper feelings for you. He finds happiness in prioritising your needs over his. There's a difference between this and people-pleasing. People-pleasing stems from a place of insecurity, while prioritising your needs comes from a place of genuine desire to see you happy. Then the happiness that comes with it knowing he somehow made it happen.
- He's open about who he is
You may not mean to be manipulative or misleading, but you may feel the need to hide parts of yourself when you meet someone new. So if a man is being all free and open with you, it may be a sign that he's falling in love with you. This may involve letting you see the great parts of him and the not-so-great parts. Generally, he displays ease of expression, including talking about the emotional parts of himself.
- He wants you to meet his friends and family
He's eager to send a message across social and family circles that someone new is in his life. In fact, he's not only eager for you to meet them, he just may have talked about you so much that they're probably sick of hearing about you. It is a human thing. We want people we respect and care about to see and know the person we're involved with.
Understandably, we all want grand gestures of love when we meet new people. We want to be certain. But on many occasions, it comes down to your gut feeling.
