1. He stops flirting with other women
If your boyfriend is a big flirt and suddenly you notice he has stopped flirting blatantly with other women that it means he is getting more into you. He is starting to show you that he is serious about you and respects you.
2. He doesn’t pay attention to his phone when he’s with you
Men may not spend as much time on the cell phones as we do, but if you are on a date and he either silences his phone or turns it off and gives you his undivided attention, you can be pretty sure that he is falling in love.
3. He sends you flowers or candy
If he sends you little gifts, either at work, or to your home, he is trying to get you to notice him. He wants to show you how he feels. He may buy you little token gifts, like your favorite perfume. If he starts giving you more gifts and tries to surprise you with romantic outings, then he is starting to fall for you.
4. He teases you playfully
Some things never change. He might not hit you and run and pull your hair like boys did in grade school, but he may tease you. If he starts to tease you in a fun and flirty way, then he definitely likes you.
5. He pays attention when you talk
If he stares at your eyes and not your chest and actually listens when you talk, then he truly likes and respects you. If he asks you questions about yourself, your job, your hobbies and your life in general, than you can bet that he is sincerely interested in pursuing a serious relationship with you. If he weren’t interested, he would only talk about himself and not take the time to get to know you.
6. He starts dressing nicer
If he is normally a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy and now he is wearing nicer clothes, maybe a button-down shirt and dress pants, then he is trying to look good to get your attention. Is he suddenly wearing cologne? Has he recently gotten a haircut? If he’s putting more effort into his appearance mean that he likes you and wants you to notice him.
7. He shows interest in your hobbies
If a man really likes you, he will express a sincere interest in your hobbies. While he might not be into the same things as you all the time, he will at least show interest and ask you questions. He may even participate in some of your hobbies with you. If you want to show him you are interested, you should do the same.
8. He remembers little things about you
When a man is interested in a woman, he will pay attention when she talks and remember little details about her. Does he know your favorite song? Your favorite candy? Did he remember that little trinket that caught your eye in the antique store and surprised you with it as a gift? If he remembers little details from your conversation that he is totally into you.
9. He calls you often
If he calls you frequently, he is definitely interested. Is he suddenly calling you just to say hello or see how your day is going? This is a surefire sign that he likes you as more than a friend.
10. He texts you frequently
Is he texting you to say “good morning” or does he text you at night before you fall asleep? If he is texting you often, it means that he is thinking about you!
11. He introduces you to his family
If it’s true love, he will want you to meet his family. This is a big step in a relationship so you can be certain that he really likes you. Once you meet his family, it means that he is serious about the relationship.
12. He lets you meet his friends
One of the most common signs of true love from a man is when he lets you meet his friends. If he starts including you in outings with his buddies, then he really likes you. He is letting his buddies know that you are going to be a more permanent part of his life.
13. He confides in you
If he starts to tell you personal and intimate details about his life than he is really into you. Generally, men are not as open with their feelings as women are so if he is confiding in you than he is taking your relationship seriously.
14. He’s not afraid to be affectionate
If he holds your hand, puts his arms around you or kisses you in public, then he is definitely falling in love. Most men are not big on PDA so if he is openly showing affection for you, then he may be in love.
15. He loves talking about the future
If he is starting to make plans for the future, it means things are getting serious. If he is including you in future events and inviting you to holidays with his family and planning vacations with you, then it might be true love!
Of course, it would be much easier if he were to just tell you that he loves you, but these 15 signs of true love from a man will help give you some insight into your relationship. If he is not doing any of these things, you need to be upfront with him and ask him how he feels. You don’t want to waste your time on a meaningless relationship. You deserve to be with someone who loves you as much as you love them!
