If you’re checking your phone every few minutes to see if he has texted you, you may have developed stronger feelings for him. Checking to see your partner’s name pop up on your phone is a sign of wanting to stay in contact with him. You may feel a surge of excitement or feelings of happiness and cheerfulness each time you see his replies to your texts.

2. You Feel Comfortable Sharing Your Secrets

Love eliminates the feeling of embarrassment and encourages vulnerability as it helps you share the keys to your respective secret worlds with each other. If you feel comfortable sharing your deepest, darkest, or even innocent secrets with him, it is possible that you love him. Since you trust him, you don’t feel the need to hide anything from him.

3. You Are Experiencing Mood Swings

Falling in love can feel like an emotional roller coaster. Since you are experiencing a surge of hormones, you may go through many conflicting emotions all at once. It can be challenging to fully decipher what you are going through. Plus, if you are trying to figure out if he loves you back, you may overthink or overanalyze every move of his, thereby worsening the mood swings.

4. You Relive The Moments You Spent Together

Memories are the very essence of human life. When people fall in love, they relive the sweet memories they share with their partners when they are not around. If there is great chemistry between you two, you cannot help but reminisce about those romantic gestures and happy moments with him. Your recent memories about him maybe steering you toward love.

5. The Silence Between You Never Feels Awkward

The silence, awkwardness, and tension among strangers is very apparent. But, that may not be the case with your partner. You feel absolutely comfortable even when the two of you silently stare at each other. This comfortable silence is a sign that you love him.

6. You Have Him In Your Future

Seeing him in your future is a real sign of falling in love. You may be making plans to travel together, move into his house, or even get married. By seeing him right beside you in all your future endeavors, you show a level of commitment to him and are interested in developing your relationship even further.

7. You Feel Nervous About Impressing Him

You can be concerned about what your partner thinks of you, causing you to feel a little nervous or anxious around him. You may try to think of ways to impress him and worry about your appearance or what to say to him. Such nervousness unintentionally induced by him can be an indicator of falling in love.

8. You Think Of Him When You Are In Trouble

These days, if your car breaks down or you face problems at work, you prefer speed-dialing your partner over anyone else. Taking advice from your partner or asking for his help indicates that you are most likely falling in love with him. It shows that you value his opinion and are trying to make him an active part of your life.

9. His Presence Makes Everything Better

Being with your partner is a rewarding experience. You are always longing to meet him, no matter what you are doing, finding ways to spend time with him is always on your mind. The excitement you feel when you are around him can make new and scary activities easier to do. Whether it’s waking up early to go to the gym or trying out a new restaurant, you’ll find it easier to step out of your comfort zone if he is around you. On top of that, boring chores like doing the laundry or dishes are way more fun when he is around.

10. You Are Curious About His Little Details

Do you remember the little things about him, like his favorite song or a story he shared with you once? Remembering the small but important details about him means you’ve probably fallen in love with him. It’s a sign that you are hoping to make him happy by being invested in his life.

11. Your Happiness Seems To Have No Bounds

The feeling of love, attraction, admiration, and infatuation can bring a smile to anyone’s face. Ever since he entered your life, the world may seem a lot brighter than it was. Being in love releases happy hormones such as serotonin and oxytocin, giving you a feeling of euphoria when you think about him.

Oxytocin (the love hormone) also dilates your pupils whenever you see someone you love. The hormone controls the muscles of the irises, which get activated especially when you are experiencing a change in your emotions.

12. You Have Become A Different Person, Thanks To Him

You may have developed new traits after meeting your partner and now feel like a different person. Your friends and family may remark that you seem happier and more confident since you met him. If you find your personality changing due to his presence in your life, it can be a strong sign of love.

13. Your Past Relationships Don’t Seem To Affect You Anymore

Have you experienced unrequited love or break-ups? The hurt of past relationships can act as a hurdle between loving and trusting your current partner. But when you begin to develop deeper feelings for someone, your past trauma and experiences just don’t seem as overwhelming anymore. You may find yourself not missing your ex ever since your current partner came into your life.

14. No Other Man Seems Charming To You

When you really love someone, you are less likely to find anyone else attractive. You instinctively stop checking out other boys, especially if your partner is just as into you as you are into him.

You may also experience a surge of energy whenever he is around. Your thoughts will all be about him.

15. You Make Little Sacrifices To Spend More Time With Him

Since you can’t wait to spend more time with him, you are happy to miss out on dinners and movie nights with friends and family. You prefer spending one-on-one time with your partner, even if you have a busy schedule. It may not even feel like making a compromise. Making more time to be with him is a sure sign that you are falling in love with him.

16. His Happiness Comes Before Yours

Do you find that other priorities are on hold when he’s with you? Are his success and happiness important to you? When you form a deeper bond with your partner, you want to support him and keep him happy no matter what it takes. You may constantly be finding ways to please him, even if it is a bit inconvenient for you sometimes.

17. Everything Seems To Remind You Of Him

Lately, you have been seeing him in everyone and everything, and you cannot control what’s happening to you. You miss him when he’s not around – which is why every little thing around you reminds you of him. This is a strong indication that you are in love with him.

18. You Lose Track Of Time With Him

You know you love him when one of the hardest things to do is saying ‘goodbye’ to him after spending time with him. You may feel as though time moves too fast when you are with him, hoping and wishing to spend a few more minutes together. You want to be around him as much as possible, and no amount of time spent with him feels enough.

19. You Seem To Share His Emotions

If you are in love with him, you are more likely to mirror his emotions. Some days you may feel like his feelings resonate with your heart. Building strong emotional connections brings people closer, allowing them to understand what their partner is feeling without them uttering a single word.

20. His Likes And Dislikes Matter A Lot To You

Do you care about how to present yourself to your partner on a date? Are you continually trying to pick a dress in his favorite color to impress him? Do you actively avoid making food that he doesn’t like? If all these small likes and dislikes mean the world to you, it’s safe to conclude that you are slowly falling in love with him.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the physical signs of love?

Loss of appetite and sleeplessness may be some of the physical signs of love. However, science is yet to determine if love actually causes these physical signs.

Does a woman glow when in love?

Oxytocin is a hormone that induces the feeling of love (1). Since it has skin-enhancing properties, it may cause one to glow when in love (2).

Can I fall in love with someone I just met?

Although it’s rare, falling in love at first sight is possible.

How do I know if it’s love or just infatuation?

While love is a deeper experience that involves knowing someone intimately, feeling bonded to them, and being compassionate about them in a way that is both enduring and not dependent on how they make you feel, infatuation typically occurs quickly and involves a strong attraction that wears off over time.

How do I know if I have an instant connection?

You know when even on your first meeting, you feel as if you have known each other for years. You will be able to fit in with them quickly and enjoy their company. Thoughts of you having finally found the person you’ve been looking for will cross your mind. Finally, you won’t be able to erase them from your memory.

Can physical attraction or chemistry indicate that I am in love with someone?

It is not necessary that you are in love with someone toward whom you feel a physical attraction; it’s possible that the urge stems from a need for physical intimacy. The same can be said of someone’s intelligence as well. Love, on the other hand, is unconditional and unmotivated by any individual need. While you can fall in love with someone due to attraction, it only lasts a while.

Key Takeaways

  • If you imagine spending your future with someone and are comfortable sharing your secrets with that person, you are in love with them.
  • If he makes you feel better and brings out the best in you, you have feelings for him.
  • If you lose track of time when you are with him and want to relive the moments spent together, there is great chemistry between you two.

Are you wondering if that special guy in your life likes you back? Look out for these 20 signs – from subtle body language cues to more obvious actions – to find out if he’s into you.
