Not sure where you stand with the guy you’re into? These 20 signs a man is falling in love will give you the information you need about your relationship!
When you start to feel strongly about a guy, and get that warm, fuzzy feeling that you might be starting to fall in love, you’ll be no doubt anxious to know the signs a man is falling in love too.
There is nothing worse than thinking everything is going swimmingly in your relationship, only to realize a few weeks later that he actually thought the opposite – when he lets you know that he wants to stop seeing each other.
The beginnings of relationships can be tricky. Often, they feel like a minefield. You start dating someone, and the more you get to know them, the more you like them. You decide you don’t want to see other people. The sex is great, and you start to feel as though you could see them every single day and never get bored.
20 signs a man is falling in love
Lots of people keep their cards close to their chest at the beginning of a relationship, afraid they will get hurt or look foolish if they fall for someone, only to find out that the other person just doesn’t feel the same way. This can be particularly true of guys who are more likely to hide their emotions and not say what they truly feel in case they look stupid or told they simply move too fast.
So, if you are falling for a guy and want to know if the feeling is mutual, then check out these 20 signs a man is falling in love with you.
#1 He can’t stop calling. Did he used to play it oh-so-cool when replying to your text messages or calling you back? Now has something changed? If suddenly you hear from him way more, and he takes the lead suggesting dates and meet ups, or simply just checks in to see ‘how you are’ even though he only saw you two hours ago, it sounds like he may be one smitten kitten!

#2 He drops around. You might think it’s super cute or a bit invasive, but if he suddenly starts dropping around your apartment because he was ‘in the neighborhood’ or pops by your place of work to see if, on the off chance, you are free for lunch, he is obviously desperate to see you. He just can’t wait until your next date!
#3 He holds your gaze. If he keeps simply looking into your eyes and not able to tear himself away, he might be gearing up to tell you something big! He clearly just wants to look into your eyes all day and wants to form a proper connection with you so you feel it too! [Read: 10 super subtle gestures that reveals someone’s into you]
#4 He gets tongue tied. If he suddenly starts to get super nervous around you, stuttering, being shy, breaking out into a sweat, it’s probably because he realized he is falling for you and feels pretty unsettled by it!
#5 He introduces you to his friends. A guy’s friends are a precious thing. If he feels ready to introduce you to his buddies, it must mean he is pretty serious about you and wants to fully involve you in his life. Take this as a very good sign indeed!
#6 He introduces you to his parents. Better still, he goes all out and introduces you to his parents. If your new man can’t wait to show you off to his relatives this means, he is ready to take things to the next level. Introducing you to his parents demonstrates he is really ready to commit, and is one of the biggest signs a man is falling in love with you.
#7 He hates it when you talk about your exes. Does he get a bit jealous or moody if you ever mention your ex, or someone else who has a crush on you, even in the most innocent of contexts? Probably because he is falling in love with you. Now the idea that you were with anyone else before him becomes a bit unbearable! [Read: Is your past rousing your lover’s jealousy?]
#8 He gets nervous around you. Has he started acting shy or a bit strange? If he used to be super confident and his behavior changed, he might be mustering up the courage to tell you he loves you.
#9 He does a grand gesture. Sometimes a grand romantic gesture is a guy’s way of telling you he loves you when he is too nervous to get the words out. If he does something super romantic for you, he tries to let his actions speak for themselves.
#10 He’s super thoughtful. Has he suddenly become all kind and caring? Acting like a true gentleman or making cute and thoughtful gestures all the time? If so, it could be a sign that he fell for you hard. [Read: 12 science backed clues to know if a guy likes you for sure]
#11 He remembers everything you say. If a guy suddenly hangs onto your every word, it may well be that he is totally infatuated by you. He finds everything that you say totally fascinating and wants to remember all the details so he impresses you with how much he listened to what you said.
#12 He can’t stop talking about you. Every time you meet someone he knows, do they say, ‘Oh yes, I’ve heard a lot about you!’ If so it’s because he’s clearly smitten and tells anyone and everyone who will listen!
#13 He goes hot then cold. While this could be a sign for many things, including your relationship taking a turn for the worse, if your guy starts blowing hot and cold, don’t despair just yet! It could still be one of these subtle signs a man is falling in love with you.
Perhaps, it could be that he is falling for you and struggles to deal with his emotions, or he’s scared you don’t feel the same way and is trying to protect himself from getting hurt. [Read: 10 reasons a guy could be ignoring you]
#14 He asks to meet your family. If he pushes you to introduce him to your family, he tries to show you how serious he is about you and wants them to love him just as much as he loves you!
#15 He makes loads of effort with your friends. He knows that if he gets your friends on his side then he is golden. Where if they don’t like him, he has his work cut out for him. If he makes a ton of effort with all your friends he wants to not only get their support, but also show you how much he cares.
#16 He let’s you make all the decisions. A soppy movie? Sure! Vegan sushi for dinner? Why not? If he is suddenly okay with whatever you want to do he shows you how much you mean to him, and that he would do anything for you! [Read: Does he truly love you? 20 signs to read his mind]

#18 He buys you gifts. If he starts showering you with cute, funny, or romantic gifts, he is definitely trying to tell you something!
#19 He keeps telling you how special you are. If he always lets you know how special you are, it’s because he really doesn’t think he’s met a girl like you or felt this way before. He’s definitely fallen for you and trying to let you know just that! [Read: How to tell if a guy is just playing you: 12 clues he’s just using you]
