You’re dating a girl who’s so awesome that just thinking of her makes your heart flutter. But does she love you? Check out these 15 signs of amour.
It’s great to be in love, isn’t it? But sometimes it’s difficult to know how another person really feels. It may be that you just have a crush on a girl from afar, or have been dating someone for quite a while, but you can’t quite read whether she feels the same way. Luckily, there are ways to find out!
Telling someone you love them is a big step, and it is fair to say that most guys take saying the big “L” word pretty seriously. The last thing you want is to get rejected, or to have your *actually pretty fragile* heart crushed if the girl of your dreams doesn’t say it back—or worse, freaks out and dumps you, or responds with the soul-destroying refrain, “I think we should just be friends.”
Does she love you? 15 ways to know she‘s crazy about you
In order to protect your hearts and pride, here are 15 signs to know for sure that that lovely lady is head over heels, 100% in love with you. [Try: How to find out if a girl likes you in 12 ways]
#1 She wants to know all about your friends. Showing an interest in your friends is definitely a sign of love. She takes an interest—not only in how they are doing, but if all the little details you’ve told her still ring true.
Being thoughtful and caring, and really listening to you are great signs. Making an effort to show you that she cares is her way of trying to impress you and let you know she loves you, too.
#2 You have great trips away together. Trips away are actually a huge test of the strength of your relationship. If you want to find out whether she loves you, take a break somewhere with her and see how you get on. Holidays are strangely pressured situations where you are “meant” to be having the time of your life. If you bicker and fight constantly, she may not be the one for you.

#3 She checks you out. Whether you have only been dating for a little while or for years, your woman should think you are super attractive. If you catch her giving you an appraising eye, it shows she is still completely into you, and totally loved-up.
#4 You want the same things from your relationship. It is always a good idea to have this conversation as early as you can. There is no point in sticking with a girl who has a completely different view of the world, and expects entirely different things from her life. Sharing the same values and respecting, caring about, and enjoying similar things will indicate that you are onto a winner!
#5 You hear her talking about you—and it‘s good stuff! If you overhear her talking about you positively to her friends, co-workers, or just about anyone that will listen, it suggests that she is one smitten kitten! She is excited to tell the world about you and wants to show off and let everyone know that she’s got the greatest guy in the world. [Check out: How to prove that you love someone the right way]
#6 You don‘t have anything to moan about. So, you hang out with your buddies down at the pub, and the conversation moves on to the womenfolk in their lives. No doubt, they will all have something to complain about. If you can’t relate, it is because your lady is totally into you, and just wants to keep you happy.
#7 She‘s your personal cheerleader. No, we don’t mean literally! However, if your woman loves you, she will show you by supporting you in everything you do. She totally believes in you and has confidence that you can do whatever you want to do, and be whoever you want to be.
When you are feeling unsure of yourself, she is right there by your side, pulling you up and giving you the confidence and support you need! [Read: When should you say “I love you” for the first time]
#8 You talk about the future—a lot. If you can sit down and chat about plans that won’t happen until way, way in the future—we’re talking marriage, kids, or even just a holiday that you want to go on next summer—and it feels like the most natural thing in the world, this probably means you are both totally in love with one another.
#9 She makes sacrifices for you. She loves you, and she wants to make you happy. If this means sacrificing something in order to do so, she’ll do it. Just make sure you return the favor!
#10 She likes you, just as you are. That’s right, guys—if a lady truly loves you, she isn’t looking for you to be any different. She won’t try to change you, but accepts you just as you are. If she is constantly nagging at you or putting you down about things she doesn’t like, chances are it’s not love. [Read: 18 foolproof ways to make a girl fall in love with you]
#11 She doesn‘t play games. A girl who loves you ain’t gonna mess around! She isn’t interested in playing games or toying with your emotions. She will let you know she wants to be with you, and that’s that.
#12 Her friends are happy for you. Everyone roots for a couple in love. If she loves you, her friends are going to be happy for you. If they aren’t, this might be a sign that she’s not sure, and telling them behind your back.
#13 You can tell her anything. If she has made you feel comfortable enough that you can tell her anything, it suggests that she is in love with you.
Knowing she won’t judge you for whatever is on your mind is definitely a great indication of her love. Be it your hopes, fears, aspirations, or even sexual fantasies, she is cool with everything you say, and will happily take it all in and make helpful suggestions, too!

#14 She lets you watch the game. If she loves you, she’ll know how important it is to you, and even though there is an amazing, insightful documentary she’s been waiting for weeks to see on at the same time, she’ll let you watch the game–and may even watch it with you, too!
#15 She cooks you pie. Everyone knows the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. If you come home and she’s cooked a great meal for you, it is her way of telling you she wants to take care of you and that she loves you. Think about it: a huge, delicious pie. If that isn’t love, we don’t know what is!
There is no better feeling in the world than knowing for certain that the person we love loves us back, but we can all get a little unsure at times.
These 15 signs are fantastic ways to find out whether the woman of your dreams feels the same way, too. If you are in doubt as to whether she loves you back, just go through this list and see if any–or all of them–apply to you.
