There is probably not a single woman out there who has not at least once asked herself the famous question: How does a man behave when he is in love with me?
After a few dates at the latest and after getting to know each other for a long time, the woman becomes skeptical about the man’s feelings. You probably already know:
You guys hang out, go on dates, and everything is perfect. He always says exactly the right words and does all those little things that mean the world to you.
He looks you deep in the eyes, text you non-stop, really tries, talks about the future with you and introduces you to his best friends.
Judging by all the positive signs, he’s slowly falling in love with you and you hope he’ll soon tell you his true feelings.
While you are waiting for his confession of love, he then suddenly does something completely atypical and confuses you with mixed signals.
Then a thousand doubts arise and you think that you might be wrong. That he may not be in love with you after all and that you are just imagining it.
A million questions are buzzing through your head and not a single answer. In fact, there is only one answer: men are really weird creatures.
It’s been the same for me (and many other women), and I know exactly how confusing and nerve-wracking it is for you.
Here you will get all the answers to the question of how a man in love behaves.
It’s not exactly easy to find out if a man is in love with you, but luck is obviously on your side!
There are some really great signs that point to extreme longing and how a man behaves when he is in love with you. All you have to do is pay close attention to these signs to solve the mystery of his true feelings!
How does a man behave when he falls in love?
There are a few things to watch out for if you want to know how a man in love acts!
Body language and psychological cues, gestures, and more can tell you a lot about how a man really feels about you, and that is exactly what you should focus on!
To make things easier for you, we’re going to look at these signs separately and divide them into two groups:
1. Body language cues
2. Psychological signs
We start with the first group, the body language signs! So let’s get started right away!
Body language signs that he is in love with you
Most women neglect this important aspect of male (and generally human) psychology, forgetting that body language is our greatest help when it comes to our love lives.
I always say that our body language reveals everything that our lips cannot or will not say.
We can wrap our words in lies or simply hide something, but our bodies are not granted this privilege.
Our body’s need to show affection is ingrained in everyone and if you ask me, body language signs are more meaningful than anything and all other kinds of signs out there.
And why? Because they are not controlled by our minds.
Any body language reaction occurs unconsciously, which means that we are not even aware of these reactions.
We cannot control it and therefore we cannot determine it ourselves.
So how does a man behave when he’s in love? You don’t need to do a thorough analysis of his zodiac sign to find out whether he loves you or not.
You can easily tell by how he behaves around you, and here you will find the most important and most obvious signs that you can read from his body language.
1. He bends over as close as possible when you are together
When a man is in love with you, he bends over to you as close as possible when you are together.
This clearly shows that he is attracted to you both emotionally and physically and therefore wants to be as close as possible to you in all possible situations (during small talk, on the street, in a café, etc.).
If a man behaves like this on a first date, it doesn’t necessarily mean that he has already fallen in love with you and that you can look forward to an “I love you” tomorrow.
But if this behavior continues after a while, when you know each other better, it is a clear sign that he is madly in love with you!
His body and mind are hypnotized by you and that is why it is so good for him to be close to you.
And although he has not yet admitted it in words, his body gives away everything!
2. He smiles at you more often and longer
When we feel really good in the company of someone special, we automatically get a strange look on our faces and have to smile all the time for no reason.
I recently went on a quasi date with a guy I’ve been friends with for years, and I remember he smiled a lot more and for a lot longer than usual.
His smile never stopped, it seemed as if he couldn’t stop enjoying the nirvana-like togetherness with me.
(By the way: just a few days later, he admitted that he had feelings for me and that he should have done something about it much earlier.)
So if you find that the guy smiles at you more often and longer, you can be sure that he was hit by Cupid’s arrow, because this guy enjoys your company so much that he can’t stop smiling when he’s with you is.
He’s probably also aware of how stupid it looks at times, but there’s nothing he can do about it!
3. He touches you very subtly
When it comes to love and affection, we often forget the power of a subtle touch.
The biggest difference between a subtle and an intentional touch lies in the fact that subtle touches are mostly unconscious.
This means that the person who touched you didn’t do it consciously or intentionally. It was her body – her body revealed what her mind didn’t want or couldn’t.
If a man touches your shoulder, arms, hand, neck or other very subtle places very often or even constantly, you can be sure that he has fallen in love with you.
He does this because he wants to comfort you, give you a sense of security and shower you with affection because of his strong feelings for you.
And the best part is that he is completely unaware of it because he is doing all of this completely subconsciously!
4. He laughs more at your jokes and funny comments
Did you notice the guy suddenly laughing more at your jokes and funny comments? If so, then you can be sure that he has a total crush on you!
But how does the increased laughter relate to his feelings for you?
Well, it’s easy to explain: if he laughs more at your jokes and funny comments, it means he won’t miss any of your words.
He listens to you attentively and can’t help but laugh himself up at every joke and funny thing you say (even if you don’t find it that funny yourself).
In addition, his body tries to subtly tell you that he enjoys your company more than anything and that your voice sounds like a very special tune to him that he has become addicted to, so that all he can do is laugh and enjoy the time with you can!
5. It reflects your body language
One of the best dating tips I’ve ever received in my life: Always make sure that it reflects your body language!
At first I didn’t understand the meaning of this subconscious reaction, but now it all makes sense.
You know, when someone is very attracted to you both emotionally and physically, they subconsciously begin to mirror your body language because they want to gain your approval and sympathy.
He wants to be noticed by you and make sure that you fall in love with him too. And it works like this:
We believe that by mimicking other people’s behavior we will make them fall in love with us.
Yes sir. This has happened to me several times and I wish I had known earlier because it would have made my love life a lot easier and more enjoyable.
So if you find that the guy reflects your body language (e.g. that he touches his hair, nose or the like only a few seconds after you), then you can be sure that he is totally into you!
6. He looks you deep in the eyes
It is said that the eyes are the window to the soul, and there is definitely something to it!
The intense eye contact results from the strong need to create an emotional bond with the person we are in love with.
It is the greatest indicator of strong affection for another person, and it takes a lot of courage.
So watch out for his eyes! If you notice that he is making intense eye contact with you (and looking deep into your eyes for a few seconds longer than usual), then it is clear that he is totally in love with you.
That can be seen very clearly in his eyes, because the eyes never lie!
And just like many other body language indicators, they tell us everything that words can’t!
7. He tilts his head to one side
This probably sounds a little weird or confusing now, but I’ll try to explain it as best I can so you can understand the real meaning behind it.
If a man tilts his head to one side while listening to you, he is putting himself in a vulnerable position, acting against the natural male instinct to act like an alpha male.
He’s totally into it, concentrating only on you and soaking up your every word.
He unconsciously signals to you that you have his undivided attention because his heart belongs to you.
He falls in love with every word you say, every little gesture and even the way you breathe!
8. He takes a deep breath when he sees you
When we fall in love with someone, it is hard to stay sane and pretend everything is normal.
We get nervous, worry too much and are constantly afraid of doing something wrong and ruining everything instead of conquering the heart of our dream partner.
This is exactly how a man in love feels when he is around you.
When he sees you, he just has to take a deep breath to relax and muster the strength not to fall over at the first word exchanged.
He takes a deep breath because he feels overwhelmed by all of his feelings for you, and because those feelings get a little stronger every time he sees you.
We all know that men don’t understand and deal with their emotions very well, so that’s completely normal for them.
9. He plays with your hair
A woman’s hair drives any man crazy because men find it really fascinating to play with a woman’s well-groomed hair.
Now, I wouldn’t say that playing around with your hair is in itself proof that he fell in love with you – but the way he does it can tell you a lot about how he feels about you.
Does he do it tenderly, is he gently massaging your scalp?
Does he look you in the eye while he plays with your hair? Does he kiss you passionately?
If so, then it is clear that he not only likes your head of hair, but that there is much more to it!
He tries to tell you in a subtle way that he wants to explore and touch everything about you, including your hair and every other part of your body and soul!
10. He kisses you on the forehead
There are many different types of kisses, and they all mean different things. However, I would attach a very special meaning to the kiss on the forehead!
And why? Because a kiss on the forehead is a sign of the utmost respect and tremendous care, affection and love. When a man kisses you on the forehead, you know that you are the lucky one!
You know he’s crazy about you and wants to shower you with his romantic gestures and affection!
A kiss on the forehead means that he is always there for you, no matter what, that you can count on him and that he thinks you are an amazing, very special woman who he must protect at all costs and keep in his life !
11. He always puts his arm around you in public
As you probably already know, men are known to be extremely territorial, especially when it comes to their wives.
So if you find that the guy always puts his arm around you in public, you know why he’s doing it!
He does it to show everyone else that you are his only and also to brag about what a great woman he’s with.
He puts his hand on your shoulder or his arm around your waist to mark his territory.
In doing so, he signals to other men that you are already taken – typical of a man deeply in love.
He wants to make sure that everyone knows that you belong to him and only to him. (So cute i know!)
12. He (always) turns around after saying goodbye
You probably know the classic scene from love films, when two people say goodbye after their date, kiss each other and wish each other a good night.
Then you see the woman walking shyly towards her house, smiling, while the man smiles too and turns around to see her one last time!
Men do this because they can’t stop marveling at the woman of their dreams and that’s why they want to seize every second.
I swear every time I see this I have to melt away because it’s so romantic and women usually don’t even notice it.
So next time you say goodbye to your guy, be sure to see if he turns around again.
If so, you can be sure that he is slowly but surely falling in love with you or already has a crush on you!
13. His hands are wet
As already mentioned, falling in love is closely linked to feelings of fear and other stressors that are activated in our brain when we are afraid that we will not be able to impress and conquer our dream partner.
One of the signs that a man is nervous because he wants to impress and win over his dream woman is his clammy hands.
So try to “accidentally” touch his hand when he gives you something and see if his hands are damp.
If so, then it is clear that he is in a serious “I have to impress her” phase right now because he is totally crazy about you!
14. His face is (often) very red
You’re probably wondering what kind of sign that is supposed to be. He’s getting red in the face, so what? I’ll explain it to you briefly.
Being in love means blushing, getting your hands wet and taking a deep breath every time you see the person you’re in love with.
And why? Because these are all physical symptoms of falling in love, so to speak, caused by a stress reaction and the stress hormone adrenaline.
Yep. When we are completely blown away by someone, our bodies literally go nuts and develop all of these not-so-attractive symptoms like clammy hands and the like.
If you have ever noticed that your guy blushes more often and more than usual, then it is clear that he is seriously trying to process his feelings, to understand them, to accept them and to live them out.
He also knows that he is likely on the verge of experiencing true love.
15. He raises his eyebrows when he sees you
Similar to symptomatic deep breaths, our eyebrows can reveal a lot about how we feel about a particular person.
In fact, eyebrows can tell you more than words, which is why you should pay attention to them!
If your guy raises his eyebrows every time he sees you, then it’s clear that he is totally crazy about you and his whole body inevitably shows signs of admiration, admiration and respect for a great person like you!
When he sees you, he literally freezes and can only show with his body language what he really feels for you.
His raised eyebrows, his clammy hands and his flushed face testify to his deep affection for you.
This is especially noticeable when he unexpectedly meets you somewhere, because he cannot prepare for it and his feelings literally rise to the highest within a second!
16. Its pupils are huge
As already said, our eyes are the windows to our soul and intensive eye contact is a sign of deep admiration and affection. But what about our pupils?
When we’re completely entranced by someone, our pupils dilate (and become huge), which is a natural response of our brains.
So when a man looks you in the eye (especially when there is intense, prolonged eye contact), it is important to pay attention to his pupils.
If his pupils are huge most of the time, then it’s clear that every second he spends with you, he falls in love with you more and more!
Psychological signs that he’s in love with you
In contrast to the body language signals, which cannot be controlled by our brain, the psychological signs are signals that we consciously give when we fall in love.
These signals include certain behaviors, reactions, decisions, sacrifices and much more and they show his deep affection for you!
When a man is crazy about you, he can’t help but show his affection with all sorts of small and not-so-small gestures that mean the world to you.
He does this because he needs to impress you and make you feel special.
When a man is madly in love with you, he has only one goal on his mind – to conquer you!
He does everything in his power to show you that he is right for you and that is exactly what you need to pay attention to.
Should you find that some or even all of the following signs apply to your guy, then it’s clear that he’s falling in love with you or is already in love with you.
1. He shows off
When a man is freshly in love, he immediately switches to “Alpha Mode”, where he does everything in his power to impress you with his macho behavior.
That means he’ll act up in front of you, brag about his achievements, keep trying to make you laugh, and so on.
This is hands down one of the clearest signs that a man has a total crush on you. He is constantly looking for ways to show you that he is right for you.
When you are surrounded by other men, his alpha side comes to the fore.
And why? Because he desperately wants to be the best, the right one, and the only one for you. He wants you to notice him, to get to know him at his best and to see what a great man he is!
2. He wants to be with you all the time
When a man is in love with you, he wants to spend as much time with you as possible.
And why? Because he is very attracted to you both emotionally and physically and just can’t get enough of you.
If he’s not with you, then he’s probably thinking about you all day until he finally sees you again.
This is also the main reason why he always wants to meet you and do everything with you.
He wants you to be part of his life and him to be part of your life. He wants to build a healthy, stable relationship with you. It doesn’t matter to him what you do as long as you do it together.
You are all he needs to stay alive because he is addicted to you, your personality, your laughs and your mindset.
And he needs a little bit of you every day, every minute and every second.
3. His kisses come from the heart
One of the main differences between a man in love and a man not at all in love is the way he kisses you.
If a man is just kissing you like that, it’s a clear sign that he’s not in love with you.
But if his kisses really come from the heart, then it means that he kisses you with passion, lust and maximum devotion.
But how do you know if his kisses really come from the heart?
Quite simply, you will feel it from head to toe.
You will feel a warm tingling sensation and have the feeling that you have landed in a special, magical dimension.
Of course, your gut feeling will tell you too!
4. He texts you every day
Many women underestimate the importance of simple messages because they don’t pay attention to what’s really behind it. Don’t worry, I’ll explain it to you now.
We all know that men aren’t really into texting and that they would literally prefer anything other than typing on their phones – but that changes when a man falls in love.
You are the only thing he can think of, and when he’s not with you, his phone becomes his best friend.
So if he sends you anything every day, he is signaling how much he misses you.
He also wants to share everything with you because everything reminds him of you.
When we think of this one special person often, he becomes an integral part of our thoughts and our everyday life – and therefore he has the need to be in constant contact with you.
5. He soaks up your every word as you talk
Let’s be honest:
Unless a man is really emotionally involved or interested, there is nothing in the world that can make him listen carefully to a woman.
However, if a guy feels exactly the opposite, he will soak up your every word as you talk, meaning he will listen carefully to you.
And why? Because he’s interested in everything you have to tell him.
He wants to know every little detail about you. While he probably already knows almost everything about you, he is dying to find out something new about you.
When a man has strong romantic feelings for you, he will listen carefully and create a mosaic of your personality, your habits, the things you like and dislike and your hobbies and hide them in a very special chamber of memories.
6. He introduces you to his friends and family
When a man is seriously in love with you, he wants to introduce you to the most important people in his life – his friends and family.
He wants to show you what a great woman he has met and that you have become an important part of his life – which everyone should now get to know and love.
By introducing you to his friends and family, he is expressing his feelings for you, because that’s what he wants and needs!
He would like to integrate you into his closest environment and show everyone that you now officially belong!
7. He tries hard
Engagement is one of the most important things in dating, as it is in any healthy relationship or marriage.
Commitment is timeless and the best tool to show your feelings to a loved one.
If your guy tries hard, he is deeply in love with you.
But how do you know he’s trying hard?
He always comes on time (and if not, he apologizes sincerely), helps you with all sorts of things, compliments you, pays attention to the smallest details, surprises you regularly, is always there for you when you need him, helps you when carrying heavy things, helps you to solve problems, etc.
Here is one of the most valuable relationship tips I’ve gotten to date:
A man goes to great lengths when he does everything in his power to conquer you and make you feel special, and never let you forget that you are his favorite person and that he will do anything To make you happy.
Because your happiness is also his happiness!
8. His friends and family know (almost) everything about you
Do you feel like this man’s friends and family members literally know everything about you, even though you are sure you haven’t told them anything about yourself?
Then they must have heard from him.
In this case, there is no doubt that he thinks of you day and night and that he can’t help but keep talking about you to his friends and family.
The reason for this is that he fell madly in love with you and therefore has the need to tell his loved ones about you every day.
Honey, you are the only thing he can think of no matter what he does.
You can’t get out of his head and he can’t help but put his thoughts into words when talking to other people.
9. With him, even the most boring things and activities are fun
When a man is in love with you, he wants to make you laugh all the time and turn any of your activities together into pure fun!
For example, let’s say you go shopping together and the guy is cracking jokes and making fun of different foods by pretending he’s a pickle or something.
Or you do the dishes together after dinner and he’ll dance around, sing and pretend he’s the greatest dishwasher, even though he probably has no idea what he’s doing.
He does this because he enjoys spending time with you and wants to make you laugh all the time, no matter where you two are.
If a man is totally crazy about you, you could just as easily stare at the ceiling with him and have a blast!
You are his source of positive energy and he really appreciates the time with you.
He enjoys every second with you and shows you that too clearly!
10. He makes you laugh (all the time)
Let me briefly explain to you how a man interprets a woman’s laughter: When a woman laughs, it means that she is relaxed, content and happy.
And if I can make her feel this way, it means I can conquer her and be with her!
When a man is in love with a woman, he does everything in his power to make her feel good all the time – so that she laughs!
That means he’s even laughing at his own bad luck, because as long as he can make you laugh with it, he’s fine with it.
Because of this need to make you laugh all the time, some men sometimes go too far.
They forget when to laugh and when to be more serious.
Of course, we don’t hold that against them, because that’s the way it is with them.
11. You are his priority
Is he in love with me? Does he love me? If you are trying to find an answer to these questions, it is important to pay attention to his priorities.
And why? Because when a man is totally crazy about you, you always come first for him. If he isn’t, he’ll take you for granted and treat you like an option rather than a priority.
When a man is completely crazy about you, he makes certain sacrifices for you and no longer thinks only of himself.
He is careful about how you react to his behavior and does everything in his power not to disappoint you in one way or another.
And if he made it clear from the start that you were his top priority, that’s also a good sign that he fell in love with you at first sight. Yes, that is also possible.
12. He misses you like crazy when you are not together
Did he ever tell you how much he misses you when you are not together?
Even if not, you can easily tell from his behavior whether and how much he misses you when you are not with him!
Does he write to you every day to tell you about any funny situations that happened that day and generally to let you know where he is and what he’s up to?
Does he come to visit you on the spur of the moment when you least expect it?
Does he send you presents to the office or to your home?
Does he keep asking when you have time to do something with him?
If so, then it’s clear that he misses you like crazy when you’re not together and can’t wait to see you again!
If he does, and especially if you’ve been together for a long time, I dare say that this guy loves you more than anything and only thinks of you 24/7!
13. He genuinely cares about you and every aspect of your life
How does a man act when he is in love with you? Here are a few questions to ask yourself – if your answers are positive, then there is no doubt that he is genuinely interested in you and every aspect of your life.
Is he always there for you when you are in trouble and ready to bail you out?
Does he do everything in his power to cheer you up when you’re depressed? Does he always listen carefully when you tell him about your work, your friends or your family?
If so, then you are clearly the number one priority for him and that is why he also wants to make sure that you are happy and satisfied.
And if you’re not, he’ll have to do everything in his power to change that and put a smile on your face again!
14. He opens his heart to you
I believe that all women would like to know how we can get a man to open his heart to us because it is usually not that easy for most men.
However, when a man is in love, he automatically speaks more openly about his feelings and the things that are going on in his life.
You have no idea how hard it is for a man to admit to a woman that he is in trouble or has a problem.
So if he does that, it means that he trusts you more than anyone and appreciates your advice. It also shows that he wants to develop a closer relationship with you.
He wants you to know about everything that is going on in his life because he considers you an important part of his life.
15. He protects you
If someone says bad things about you, does he take your side and defend you?
Does he tell other guys who mess with you to leave if they don’t want to feel the consequences of their behavior?
Does he always walk on the side of the sidewalk that cars and other vehicles go by?
When a man is madly and unconditionally in love with a woman, he is protecting her in every possible way.
He also protects them when he harms himself in the process.
And why? Because you are his one and only.
He loves you with every single fiber of his body and could never forgive himself if something bad happened to you that he could have prevented.
If your guy acts like this then he is undoubtedly the one for you!
I hope this article has helped you understand how a man acts when he is in love. If most of these signs apply to your guy, it’s pretty obvious that he has fallen in love with you.
All in all, if you come first for the guy, when he protects you, surprises you, listens to you, introduces you to his friends and family, and goes out of his way for you, then there is no doubt that he is inside you fell in love.
Then it is clear that he is a selfless man who wants nothing more than to make you happy.
Then you know that he is the right one for you and that you are very dear to his heart!
