A wedding ring doesn’t mean his feelings can’t change. It looks like the signs of a married man in love with another woman is happening to you.
When a single guy is into you, you already know what’s going on. You catch the nuances and their flirtatious vibes right away. But when you see signs of a married man in love with another woman, it takes a little longer to register he’s hitting on you.
We’re taught to believe that once someone is married, they’re not interested in anyone else but their partner. And for the most part, many married people stay true to their vows. But there are others who stray.
Because they’re married, they’re not going to necessarily be so forward and honest with their feelings about you. Instead, they may drop low-key hints, making you put the pieces of the puzzle together.
13 signs of a married man in love with another woman
Now, I don’t want to judge. If you’re into this man and know he’s married, understand the consequences if you take things a step further. But the odds are he won’t leave his wife for you, and you’ll end up heartbroken.
If he genuinely loves you, he may take the big step forward by ending his relationship with his wife, but even then, there are no guarantees. So, even before finding out if he loves you, decide if this is something you really want to get yourself into because it won’t be so cut and dry.
Married people can still fall for someone else.
#1 It’s more than words. Listen, he may tell you he loves you, but there’s more to love than just words. It’s easy for people to say ‘I love you,’ but an entirely different thing to show someone you love them. You don’t know what’s really going on at home for him, so saying ‘I love you’ to someone he likes, doesn’t necessarily mean anything. Look at the actions. [Read: How to tell if he loves you?

#2 He’s always trying to see you. But not just at work, this man is always grabbing the chance to spend time with you. When someone has romantic feelings for you, they’ll spend as much time with you as possible. But for married men, they won’t ask someone out on a date; instead, they find excuses to see you.
#3 He’s very interested in your love life. If he didn’t like you, he wouldn’t care if you’re single, dating, or married. Why would your relationship status concern him? But, alas, he likes you. So, he wants to know what your love life is like. The more feelings he has for you, he’ll be weaseling himself into your love life. [Read: Be careful who you trust and beware of backstabbers]
#4 He’s just a little too friendly. You can’t put your finger on it, but there’s just something about him that’s a little too friendly. Of course, he’s polite, but when he’s around you, he takes it one step further. This extra effort is obviously one of the clear signs of a married man in love with another woman. Since he’s married, he’s not sure how to approach the subject, so he makes these small moves.
#5 He treats you differently. He’s nice to other women, but when he’s around you, he amps up his gentlemanly touch. You don’t even say anything, and everyone else notices. And if it gets to that point then it’s clear he has feelings for you. [Read: How to stop a guy from flirting and hitting on you]
#6 He’s jealous. We all know this one, ladies. When a guy likes you, you’ll see through his jealousy. He’s married, so he knows his limitations. Men, in general, hide their jealousy, but when it comes to love, they’re not able to hide it very well. He may not reveal his true intentions to you, but if you notice him behaving in a jealous manner, he probably has feelings for you.
#7 He opens up to you. There’s no reason for him to be vulnerable and open up in front of you. He has a partner that he can do that with. But he’s not interested in his partner; instead, he wants to connect with you. The only way to take that step forward is to open up to you and create a bond. But don’t assume when he opens up, he’ll be honest.
#8 He amps up the charm. When he’s around you, he is extra charming and witty, pulling out his best lines. His goal is to make you smile and laugh. When you’re in a group, and he tells a joke and only looks at you, well, your reaction is what he’s waiting for. He’ll use every joke in the book to make him look interesting and funny to you.

#9 He wants to get close to you. When I mean when I say he wants to get close to you is that he wants to get closer to you physically. He’ll stand next to you, touch your back or shoulder when you talk. He may even give you a hug. Don’t underestimate those actions because married men should keep their hands to themselves.

#10 He changed his appearance. You noticed things changed a bit from when he first started talking to you. He suddenly started dressing nicer, looking more groomed. It was a sudden change, one that only came around once you started talking. It doesn’t mean this is consciously done, but when a guy likes someone, they’ll look their best around them.
#11 He takes off his wedding ring around you. Wow, well, if he does this, then he clearly is making a strong statement to you. Why would he take off his wedding ring? The only reason he’d do that is to show he’s “not married.” But remember, just because he takes off his ring doesn’t mean his marriage is over. He’s still married, don’t forget that.
#12 He misses important events to be with you. His grandma just had her 90th birthday, but instead of seeing his family, he had coffee with you. Come on, girl! This is one of the hugest signs of a married man in love with another woman, in this case, you! If he’s missing important life events because of you, wake up. Is this something you can handle? Because things are moving very fast. [Read: 12 reality checks for getting involved with a married man]
#13 He leaves his wife. Now, this doesn’t mean he loves you. If he leaves his wife, it’s because he no longer wants to be married to her. Most married men will not make this move even though they know they should end their marriage. But, if he calls it quits, it shows he’s not going to live a double life.
