If He Does These 12 Things, He’s Fallen For You

You’ve finally met an amazing guy and you’re head over heels for him — you’re just not sure if he feels the same. Sure, you know he likes you, but how much? There’s an easy way to tell. If he does these 12 things, he’s totally fallen for you.

  1. He tells you how nuts he is about you every day. Not a day goes by that he doesn’t clearly express his feelings for you in one way or another. Even if you two aren’t quite at the “love” stage, he still tells you how much he cares and likes you. The best part? His actions go hand in hand with his words.
  2. He texts you when he’s out with friends. You know you’ll hear from him — even if he has a busy day at work or drinking plans with his friends, he’ll text you. You’ll hear from him no matter what he’s doing. Maybe he’ll even send you a “wish you were here” or a “can we hang later?” message when he’s out.
  3. His co-workers know who you are. Not only do his friends and family know about your relationship, but so do his co-workers — and it’s not because he works with his besties. It’s because he tells everyone he’s dating you —not in a dramatic or loud way, but he talks about you because he’s proud to be with you.
  4. You’ve met members of his extended family. You met his parents first and it went so well that he’s brought you to almost every family function since. You’ve spent major holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas with them — you were even invited to his dad’s 50th birthday party. You’re around his family so much that you’ve met his aunts, nephews, and cousins, and that means he wants you in his life for a long time to come.
  5. His phone doesn’t have a passcode. If you’re looking at something on his phone and he gets a text, he doesn’t snatch the phone away immediately. He doesn’t feel the need to hide his texts, which means he’s not cheating or flirting with someone he shouldn’t be flirting with. His phone doesn’t even have a passcode, does it? If it does, I’m sure you know what it is. Not because you figured out after nights of snooping, either — he gave it to you.
  6. He tells you every detail of his day. He calls you throughout the day to tell you things, and not just because he knows you want to hear from him. He actually wants to tell you about his day because you’re one of his best friends. If the barista messed up his order, he wants to tell you that. If his boss congratulated him on a job well done, he wants you to be the first to know.
  7. He’s not on his phone all the time when you’re together. His phone isn’t glued to his hand when you guys are at dinner, shopping, or casually watching a movie. He might send a quick text and you might scroll through Insta (duh), but a majority of your time spent together is spent without the distractions of technology — Netflix not included.
  8. He’s not shy about showing you off on social media. You are his #WCW and he doesn’t care if the world knows it. There are pictures of you all over his Instagram and Facebook accounts, as there rightfully should be!
  9. He talks about a future with you. He talks about marrying you and even moving in together. Maybe he hasn’t bought an engagement ring or planned out the proposal, but he’s serious about a life with you. You two may not be ready to get married, but that doesn’t stop him from seeing a future with you down the road.
  10. He openly brags about your accomplishments. He thinks you’re smart, nice, determined and beautiful. He’s proud of you and everything you’ve accomplished in your life, even if you’re only in your 20s. So naturally, he’s constantly bragging about how great you are — to his friends, family, and anyone who will listen. He wants people to know how lucky he feels to be your boyfriend.
  11. You never see him flirting with other women. Being in a relationship doesn’t stop someone from noticing other people. With that said, if he does find other girls attractive, he doesn’t advertise it. He doesn’t talk about or look at other girls when he’s with you, and you’ve never heard any rumors about checking girls out when he’s not with you. It’s not because he doesn’t think other women are attractive, it’s because he doesn’t care how attractive they are — he has what he wants.
  12. He actually listens when you talk. If he asks you a question like, “How are you?” it’s because he really wants to know the answer. He listens to what you say and actually responds with something that makes sense. When you’re talking to him, he’s present in the conversation. He’s not thinking about other things, checking his phone, or wishing you’d stop talking so he can finally leave — he’s listening.
