10 Signs He’s Falling In Love, According To A Guy

The act of falling in love can have a profound impact on our behavior. Of course, that means you can generally spot when that chemical reaction is happening in someone even if you don’t understand why. For you ladies out there, if you want to know if a guy is falling in love with you, keep an eye out for these behavioral changes.

  1. He’s eager to spend time with you. He won’t just say, “I can’t wait to see you,” he’ll mean it and make it happen. Even after a date or in the morning when it’s time to say goodbye, he’ll try to linger as much as possible just to be around you for a few more minutes. I mean, he’ll even run errands with you or do things he doesn’t like just to be around you.
  2. He’s always nervous. He tends to act a little nervous because he’s found someone special. It also means that he has something to lose. If a guy is seriously in love, he’ll be worried about losing you or not being good enough, which will make him freak out a bit.
  3. There are zero communication problems. Most relationships have at least some problems with communication from time to time. But when a guy is falling in love, he doesn’t let that happen. He’ll want to call and text you constantly to see how you are and share little tidbits of his day with you. One way or another, a guy in love will find a way to keep in touch.
  4. He talks about the future with you in it. First of all, this doesn’t necessarily mean he’s talking about marriage and kids. However, it does mean he’s starting to envision every future event with you with him. It could mean a party, family gathering, vacation, or road trip that are weeks or months into the future. The point is that he’s talking about them and assuming you’ll be a part of them. Most guys don’t typically do that unless they are emotionally invested in a relationship.
  5. He thinks you’re unique. No offense, ladies, but not all of you are special. I mean, it’s one of those things where if everyone was special, nobody would be special. Luckily, if he’s falling in love, he’ll probably think that you’re the most unique and special person he’s ever met. He’ll find all of your flaws and quirks are charming and he’ll be fascinated by all of your interests and hobbies. You’ll be special in his eyes, and that’s all that matters, right?
  6. He tries hard to impress you. He looks for unexpected ways to surprise you even if it means spending money he doesn’t have. After all, love can sometimes make us do stupid things we never thought we’d do. When that happens, you can tell his feelings are serious.
  7. He compromises without question. This is the big one, ladies. It’s amazing how quickly love can change a guy with a stubborn streak. As we all know, most guys are insistent on getting their way. Still, a guy in love will be willing to compromise if it’ll make the person he loves happy. If you notice that you’re getting your way in arguments a lot more frequently, a guy might be falling in love with you.
  8. He wants to hang out with your friends. It’s one thing when a guy agrees to hang out with your friends and family, but it’s another thing when he actually wants to enjoys himself. When a guy is falling in love, he’ll want to be involved in every aspect of your life. That means spending quality time with your friends and family. He’ll also be more willing to put in the effort to get to know your friends and family so that everyone gets along.
  9. He lets his guard down. As I’m sure most of you ladies have noticed, most guys aren’t in a rush to show you all aspects of their personality. They don’t want to show you their dark side or their vulnerable side. This doesn’t apply when a guy is falling for you. He’ll feel comfortable with you and know he’ll have to be himself if he wants things to work long-term. Eventually, he’ll get to the point of letting his guard down and sharing things he hasn’t shared with anyone else.
  10. He wants to be a problem solver. Yes, sometimes you just need someone to listen to your problems, but that won’t be good enough for a guy who’s falling in love with you. He’ll want to solve and make better any problem you have. Granted, he may overstep a little and try too hard, but that’s just because love knows no boundaries, for better or worse.
