First things first: if you’re actively searching for signs he loves you, you’re probably coming from a place of anxiety. You know how you feel, and you want to know how he feels, too. You don’t want to invest your time or risk your heart if the two of you aren't on the same page about where things are going between you.

So, you look for signs, and some are indeed obvious. He’s affectionate with you. He maintains eye contact. He spends time with you. Maybe he even flat out says it.

15 Hidden Signs a Man is Falling in Love With You

1. He's in awe of your uniqueness.

This is part of the honeymoon phase. The chemical reactions caused in our minds allow us to drop judgment and only see the best in our partner. We like everything — their quirks, their flaws, even their snoring sounds like a symphony.

When a man is falling in love with you, he accepts your flaws unconditionally. Even the things you may be insecure about? Yep, he finds those fascinating. He encourages you to accept yourself and actively tries to merge himself with you.

He may do this by taking up your interests or hobbies, he may look at you a certain way, and he starts to see you in ways that you might never have seen yourself.

2. There's an emotional fragility to him.

Among the signs he's falling in love with you is emotional fragility. This isn't a great experience for many men — it invokes vulnerability, a feeling a lot of men find uncomfortable.


When he's with you, he may seem stressed out or gets triggered easily. He might not be focusing on his mental health. and appear to be clingy, jealous, or paranoid you’re going to leave him.

This doesn't mean you’re doing anything wrong; it's about his struggle to manage his emotions. Sometimes, even body language fails to communicate properly because he's so nervous it disrupts his non-verbal cues.

Not all men exhibit this sign, but many do.

3. There's a deep and wide connection forming between you.

Love also involves connection — a deep and wide connection. This often manifests as him sharing more intimate parts of his life.

He might want to join him in pursuing his passions by inviting you on a hike, or to take a pottery class, or whatever his interest and passion is. Men begin to integrate a love interest into their lives when they see the potential of a long-term relationship.


With the above in mind, two additional important elements are awareness and consideration.

4. He's more present in your life.

When a man strongly wants to be with you — he tightens his focus on you. If he does things for you without being asked, if he gives you a kiss out of the blue — there's a good chance he’s starting to fall in love.

An uptick in his presence in your life equals an uptick in your relationship status. He isn't going to spent time and energy with you if he isn't interested in you. Men usually aren't willing to fall into the role of provider or caretaker for people they don’t see in their future.


5. He genuinely wants to spend time with you.

A man who is falling in love with you will never get sick of your company and he will always be happy the times where the two of you get to hang out.

He will take his time with you and as the two of you spend more time together you will realize if he's the one wanting to reach out to you asking to hang out and let him make the moves as well so it's not just you all the time. If you notice he is making more of the moves then that's a good sign.

A man falling in love with you will enjoy your company and appreciate the moments you spend together. He doesn't rush the date and prefers being with you for extended periods, day or night, without any desire to leave abruptly. As you spend more time together, see if he takes the initiative to reach out and make plans, this is a sure sign of his interest.


6. He starts getting nervous around you.

15. He puts a lot of his time into your relationship.

If you know that your guy is a busy but still chooses to spend almost all his free time with you, he's falling for you. It's love when that's all he wants to do.

Studies show that people spend more time with people they value and see as important in their life.


If your man values his time with you and is always present in the moment with you, he is falling in love with you and feels you are worthy of his time.
