9 Signs He’s Totally Smitten With You

Many men aren’t raised to be emotionally vulnerable, which means that they don’t always say how they feel or express it in obvious ways. If a guy does these things, then he’s smitten with you.

  1. He makes plans weeks or months in advance. Most guys that want to “see where things go” will ask about what you’re doing this weekend, or even worse, send you the dreaded “you up?” text. A guy that’s smitten with you sees a future with you. He likes you so much that he’s already planning on ways to be closer to your months from now. How hot is that? Guys that aren’t interested don’t make definite plans. Run from those users.
  2. He randomly calls with nothing specific to say. You have to be careful with this one. Some guys call you because they’re bored, but don’t worry, there’s an easy way to tell the difference. When a guy calls you because he’s bored, he’ll put pressure on you to carry the conversation. When he calls and is excited to talk about whatever you want to, that’s because he’s been thinking about you and misses you!
  3. He knows your likes and dislikes without you ever having mentioned them. Guys are interesting creatures. When they’re not interested in something, they barely notice anything about it. Most guys wouldn’t be able to tell you what their friend was wearing merely minutes after spending hours with them. If a guy knows what you like and don’t like, that means he’s been paying extra attention to you because he cares about you. Everything about you is fascinating to him and that’s a sure sign that he’s falling for you.
  4. His friends joke about him being whipped. As I mentioned before, a lot of guys have a hard time verbalizing how they feel, but their friends who know them a lot better will probably observe signs of him acting and talking differently. If they joke about him being whipped, then chances are he is.
  5. He cancels plans with other people to hang out with you. When a guy makes you a priority, that’s his way of saying that he has strong feelings for you. Just be careful that you don’t let him take things too far. My friend recently got engaged and was shocked that her in-laws opposed the relationship because her boyfriend would cancel family plans all the time to see her. It’s flattering to be your guy’s number one, but be careful that a person doesn’t build their entire life around you. That’s not healthy.
  6. He compliments you when you’re dressed down. A lot of us wore makeup and nice clothes when we first started dating. There’s nothing wrong with this. We all want to put our best foot forward. Unfortunately, a lot of us look different, or ahem, better dolled up. If a guy compliments you when you’re makeup-free, that means he has strong feelings for you. After all, real love means baring ourselves to each other.
  7. He finds your annoying/weird habits cute. It’s incredible the kind of tolerance we have when our hearts are so full of love for another person. Think of babies. They’re often pooping, farting, burping, and vomiting, yet people coo over them because they’re just so damn lovable. If a guy finds the things you do that other people dislike adorable, he’s smitten with you.
  8. He tries to cheer you up when you’re down. No one is responsible for our emotional well-being but the fact that he tries to cheer you up means that seeing you down affects him. I can’t count the number of times my boyfriend has come over to sit with me when I’m feeling like crap. He always brings over my favorite slice of cake and I always feel better. The sugar high I get is a factor, but the main thing that makes me feel better is knowing that there’s someone out there that cares so much about me.
  9. He’s willing to do whatever you want to do. All human beings have likes and dislikes. If a guy puts aside his preferences then it means that he cares about you more than he cares about himself. That’s a beautiful thing to me. I find the best relationships aren’t about everyone giving 50%, but everyone going above and beyond to make the other person happy. There truly is a balance in that. If your guy frequently does that, it means his smitten with you. Feel free to let down your walls and let yourself fall for him too.
