14 Early Signs A Guy Is Falling For You

It can be tricky to decipher the meaning behind a guy’s actions and words when your relationship is still in the early stages. You may be wondering how much he likes you, if your feelings for each other are aligning, and how things will progress. Here are a few signs to look out for that mean a guy is definitely falling fast for you.

  1. He checks in with you a lot. Even if you don’t see each other every day, if you notice that he checks in with you on a very regular basis by sending you good morning and good night texts, texting you throughout the day to ask how your day is going, and being genuinely interested in the details of your life, it can be a sign that he’s falling. If he wants to know about all the little things, he’s clearly invested.
  2. He makes it clear that he’s only into you. Guys who are falling fast for someone tend to want to make things exclusive right away. If he deletes all of his dating apps, makes it obvious that you’re the only girl he’s seeing, and clears all of his free time for you, it’s his way of letting you know that he is super into you and doesn’t want either of you to date anyone else.
  3. He’s all into the PDA. Some guys aren’t into public displays of affection, especially early on in the relationship. If, when you go out together, you find that he constantly wants to hold your hand, put his arm around you, and kiss you in public, what he’s trying to do is make it clear to you and the rest of the world that you’re together. Guys aren’t always the best at vocalizing their emotions but if he can’t keep his hands off of you, there’s a good chance he is falling hard and fast for you.
  4. He can’t get enough time with you. When you fall in love with someone, it’s pretty normal to want to be around them all of the time. If your guy has been wanting to tag along with you everywhere even to simple errands like grocery shopping or trips to the carwash, there’s a good chance he’s falling for you. It doesn’t always have to be a fancy date night. When you’re falling for someone, any time with them feels special and amazing.
  5. He wants you to meet his family and vice versa. Meeting family and close loved ones can be such a huge and important step for some people. A lot of guys tend to be very guarded and keep a lot of their lives private from the people they start dating until they feel completely comfortable. If a guy wants to introduce you to the most important people in his life, it’s definitely a sign that he’s falling for you. He wouldn’t want to let you meet his family unless he thought you would be around for a long time. The same goes for meeting your family. If he’s excited and eager to meet the people that you’re closest to, it’s a sign that he only wants your relationship to grow deeper and stronger.
  6. He goes above and beyond to take care of you. A lot of guys are natural gentlemen but if your guy is going to extreme lengths to make sure that you’re taken care of, it’s definitely a sign that he’s falling for you. Does he cook for you? Make sure his kitchen is stocked with all of your favorites? Pump gas for you? Never let you touch the car door because he always opens and closes it for you? He’s definitely smitten with you!
  7. He reminds you every day how wonderful you are. Excessive compliments are definitely a sign of love and adoration. If your guy is constantly reminding you how beautiful, kind, and amazing you are, it’s just one of the ways that he is showing that he’s falling for you. In his eyes, you’re this gorgeous goddess and he needs to compliment you every chance he can get so that you always know how he feels about you.
  8. He’s not afraid to be vulnerable with you. Trust is a huge part of falling in love with someone. When you fall for a person, your heart wants to trust them with all of your secrets and there are things about you, even secret things, that you want them to know about you. Vulnerability can be very difficult for a lot of men to grapple with. Society tells men that being sensitive or emotional is a sign of weakness. Even though they know that this isn’t true, it can be a hard mindset to defeat. If your guy is comfortable sharing his fear and talking about his past with you, it’s a good sign that he is completely falling for you.
  9. He follows through. If he says he’ll text or call you, he does. If he says you’re going out, he takes you out. When a guy stays true to his word, it’s meaningful. He was either well raised or he’s falling for you without realizing it. To be fair, it’s not like other guys purposely lie. They’re just a little flaky and distracted at times. However, when his feelings start getting serious, he’s thinking of you so often. That means things don’t fall through the cracks and he always follows through.
  10. He brings you gifts. These gifts might be small and meaningless, but it’s the thought that counts, right? If he’s giving you presents early in a relationship, it’s clear that he’s thinking about you. It’s not that he’s trying to, he just can’t get you out of his mind. This means that he hasn’t yet realized how much he likes you. Of course, beware of the guy who showers you with too many gifts. He could be trying to use material things to distract from shady behavior.
  11. You can tell he’s listening. Hopefully, you can tell when a guy is actually listening to you rather than just pretending. A guy who has started to fall for you won’t need to fake his interest. He will genuinely be listening to every word you say. Honestly, guys don’t always realize how engaged they are in the conversation. It just happens.
  12. He’s insightful. What do you get after all of that good listening? A guy who makes insightful comments and observations about you. He notices little details that other guys have missed in the past because he’s actually absorbing what you’re saying. If he’s all ears anytime you open your mouth, it’s pretty clear he’s really into you.
  13. He’s respectful. In a perfect world, every guy would be respectful all the time. Obviously, we live in a far from perfect world. However, when his feelings are real, he won’t try to play games or get you in bed only to ghost you the next day. Subconsciously, he thinks you could be a long-term option for him, so he won’t be in a rush to get you into bed.
  14. He’s willing to compromise. Until they’re invested in a relationship, most guys tend to take the my-way-or-the-highway approach. But when a guy is falling for you and doesn’t realize it, he’ll be more willing to compromise and meet you halfway. Subconsciously, he cares about making you happy more than his conscious brain is able to acknowledge. That means he’ll be more willing to compromise if it’ll make you happy.
