Stop wondering if he’s in love with you and know for sure with this list of 21 signs that you’ve won his heart.
It’s pretty black and white, cut and dry, salt and pepper if you ask us, but see what you think.
Once you read this list, you’ll wonder why you didn’t know it before! The signs are so obvious and even if he doesn’t know it yet, you’ll know for sure that he has fallen deeply for you!
21 clear-cut signs he loves you deeply
A couple bonding. Signs he respects you
1. You are his priority
While work and family are pretty important to him, he wants you to know that you are someone special in his life.
That means that he puts your needs over his own and he’ll compromise where he can to make you happy.
2 He wants your advice about his life
If your guy is asking your opinion about an important decision that he needs to make, it’s likely that he trusts your sense and is already in love with you.
3.He protects you
Men are naturally protective over women. A study published in the Physiology & Behavior journal shows that male’s testosterone makes them feel protective over their mate’s safety and wellbeing.
Does your man protect you? Not just from physical harm, but does he make sure you’re protected when any negative situation arises?
Congratulations. This is a definite sign he loves you.
There’s actually a fascinating new concept in relationship psychology that’s getting a lot of buzz at the moment. It goes to the heart of the riddle about why men fall in love—and who they fall in love with.
The theory claims that men want to be your hero. That they want to step up to the plate for the woman in their lives and provide and protect her.
This is deeply rooted in male biology.
People are calling it the hero instinct.
The kicker is that a man won’t fall in love with you when he doesn’t feel like your hero.
He wants to see himself as a protector. As someone you genuinely want and need to have around. Not as an accessory, ‘best friend’, or ‘partner in crime’.
I know this might sound a bit silly. In this day and age, women don’t need someone to rescue them. They don’t need a ‘hero’ in their lives.
And I couldn’t agree more.
But here’s the ironic truth. Men do still need to be a hero. Because it’s built into our DNA to seek out relationships that allow us to feel like a protector.
He provides a fascinating insight into this new concept
It means he really cares what you think, which, in turn, means he really cares about
4. He tells his friends about you
If his friends mention that he talks about you, you can rest assured that he is in love.
Again, men are not all about expressing feelings and if he comfortable enough to tell them things about you, they know it’s love – so you can know it for sure now too
5. He compliments you
Guys who care go out of their way to let you know that you look good. Even on your worst days, he’ll find something nice to say about you to lift your spirits.
It’s not because he’s just blowing smoke your way: he might not be able to say he loves you with the actual words, but he can say it in other ways.
6. He won’t forget the little things
He’ll remember when you have an appointment or need to be somewhere for a family function.
He won’t bail on responsibilities and he’ll always remember when you got together, even if you don’t.
He’ll ask about your parents and your friends and he’ll ask how work is going, and remember to ask about that weiner, Susan, in accounting that you hate just so you have a chance to complain about her
7.He wants your advice about his life
If your guy is asking your opinion about an important decision that he needs to make, it’s likely that he trusts be your sense and is already in love with you.
It means he really cares what you think, which, in turn, means he really cares about
8.He wants to please you
He’ll make an effort to make you happy. If he says things such as, “as long as you are happy, then he is happy” – you know he’s yours.
He sends you cute good morning messages because he knows it will get your day started off in a great fashion.
9. He wants to be close to you
He’ll make an effort to be physically close to you as much as possible.
If you are out for dinner, you’ll find him sitting on the same side of the table as you; he’ll stand near you at a party; he’ll want to be closer to you in the car. It makes him happy.
It’s all his way of saying he loves you without actually saying, you know, he loves you.
10. He shows up with plans already made
If he surprises you with dinner reservations, dancing, and a fun night on the town – he’s a keeper.
Guys fall into habits and routines pretty hard, so if your guy is putting on the ritz, it might be because he’s fallen for you and realizes you are worth the effort.
11. He would drop everything to come to you
Regardless of how important everything else is in his life, you are his number one priority. You just know that he would come running if you needed him to save you.
12. He’ll watch out for you
He’s got your back. And while that might not mean a whole lot right now in the early stages of your relationship, when things get hairy down the road, you’ll want to know that he is there for you.
He shows you that he will be now by doing what he said he will do, encouraging you to follow your dreams, and being present when he’s with you. These are great signs that he loves you deeply.
13. He gets a little jealous
This may be a surprising sign, but when you think about it, jealousy is a natural reaction that men find hard to control.
And if they show jealousy, it’s a clear sign that they have strong emotions for you.
Relationship expert Dr. Terri Orbuch says:
“Jealousy is among the most human of all emotions. You feel jealous when you think you are going to lose a relationship you really value.”
Even in large groups, if he loves you, he might go out of his own way to make sure he is closer to you, and interrupting conversations with other men.
Not all men will do this. After all, they won’t want to be too controlling.
But they may ask you why you were talking to a particular guy. He might not even realize himself, but his actions speak louder than his words.
14.. You find him sneaking peeks at you from across the room
If you catch your guy treating you like eye candy from across the room, it’s a good thing.
If he can’t take his eyes off you, even if you’ve been together a while and he hasn’t said “I love you”, you can bet he does with the way he looks at you.
15. He’s not a quitter
If you’ve had your first fight and he isn’t running for the hills, there’s a good chance he sees potential in this relationship and is already invested in making it work.
So give the guy some space and he’ll come to his senses that he loves you. Besides, if you already know, there’s no rush to get him to say it. He’ll come around.
16. He wants to know your future plans
If he is truly in love with you, then he’ll want to know what you’re planning for the future.
If you mention that you’re thinking of moving away or getting a job overseas, he’ll be visibly devasted at the thought of it.
Marisa T. Cohen, Ph.D., associate professor of psychology at St. Francis College says that when partners ask each other questions about the future, it shows “a certain level of intimacy”.
This is an important sign to pay attention to as it shows what kind of future you might have together.
Does he use the word “we” when talking to you about the future? If so, he loves you
17. He shows up when you need help
If he is the person you think to call when something is wrong, there’s no question that you’re in love.
But if he the person who actually shows up when things are going wrong, then he might be in love too.
“Pay twice as much attention to how someone treats you than what they say. Anybody can say they love you, but behavior doesn’t lie. If someone says they value you, but their actions indicate otherwise, trust their behavior.”
The fact of the matter is this: If he is showing he cares for you with action, then he might be a guy that you want to hold onto.
Remember, their actions, not their words, will tell you everything.
18. He is your biggest fan
Whether you’re cooking a romantic dinner for the two of you, or you’re playing a video game, he is cheering for you on the sidelines.
“A partner who loves you will always do [their] best to truly support you in pursuing your dreams,” Jonathan Bennett, relationship and dating expert at Double Trust Dating, told Bustle.
19. He tries to make you feel better
When life gives you lemons, this man shows up and helps you make lemonade. He works hard to help you stop worrying about the little things and focus on what matters.
This is because he cares about how you’re experiencing life, and most importantly, how you’re feeling.
According to Dr. Suzana E. Flores, when someone is in love, they tend to show strong empathy:
“Someone in love will care about your feelings and your well-being…If he or she is able to show empathy or is upset when you are, not only do they have your back but they also probably have strong feelings for you.”
If he is always there for you, helping you get over what you need to get over, then you can bet your bottom dollar he is in love with you.
20.he isis making plans for your future
If he lets it slip that you’ll travel or buy a home or do anything together after next week, there’s a good chance he’s into you and is already in love.
Guys don’t make a lot of plans for the future that they say out loud, so if your man is all about what is happening next week, next month, next year – there’s a good chance he’s going to be yours forever.
21. He’ll go out of his way for you
It doesn’t matter when you need, if you call him, he will come to you.
If you need advice, a ride, some help, or just a shoulder to cry on, he’ll find a way to get to you and make sure that everything is okay.
If a guy hasn’t said it yet, but is always there for you at a drop of a hat, he probably loves you, and he might even love you secretly.
