Read on to learn more about what these 10 signs mean, so you can be sure whether or not he’s falling for you.
29 Signs He Is Slowly Falling For You
1. He calls more
When a guy really likes you, he’s going to take interest in things you like. Chances are if he’s calling you more than usual (beyond just wanting to see you and be around you), it’s because his interest has grown beyond infatuation. If a guy is interested in your interests and activities, that means he feels comfortable being himself around you and wants to get even closer to your heart.
2. Wants to spend more time with you
No one wants to spend more time with someone they don’t like, so if he’s slowly spending more time with you than usual, that means he likes you. It could be just as simple as asking you to hang out for an hour after work or even just calling at 8 p.m. instead of 10 p.m., but if he’s showing signs of wanting to spend more time with you than normal, take it as a sign that he is falling for you!
3. He compliments your personality and appearance
Everyone loves getting compliments, but when someone takes enough time to really learn about you, their compliments seem to mean more.
That’s a sign that he’s slowly falling for you. When he learns more about your personality and values and starts complimenting them as well, it could be a sign that he’s starting to fall for you! A small gesture can go a long way if it comes from someone who is personally invested in you.
So pay attention to what kind of things he says about you. If they show interest in your personality and appearance rather than just focusing on looks alone, then there might be something there! Pay attention to how often he asks questions or makes statements regarding how much he likes or cares for you too—this is another sign that might indicate that his feelings are changing towards you.
4. Knows lots of details about you
People who are falling for you will ask you lots of questions. These questions aren’t only about your big life choices like where do you see yourself in 5 years? They also include things like what is your favorite color, what’s your favorite breakfast food, and how do you sleep at night.
The more a guy knows about you, the more he can picture himself with you. This leads to him wanting to be around you even more. So if he seems genuinely interested in getting to know all there is to know about you, then he may just be falling for you!
5. Shows up at unexpected times but in a good way
Sure, you’re getting texts and calls like normal, but he’s also popping up at your favorite coffee shop or restaurant. It might seem a little stalkerish at first, but it just means he wants to see you more often! This is actually a sign he is slowly falling for you.
The key thing here is that it was unexpected. If he starts showing up at your place in a constant loop then odds are he just likes where you live. But if he shows up once out of nowhere, then suddenly makes sure to stop by every other day? Then there’s something going on.
6. He doesn’t take anything personally
If your man gets upset over everything, then he might not be ready to be in a serious relationship. A sign that he’s falling for you is when he doesn’t take anything personally anymore.
It could mean that he’s starting to see how awesome you are and doesn’t worry about what other people think of him when you two are together. When someone cares about you, they don’t get so worked up by little things that don’t matter. They let go of their ego and just focus on loving you.
7. Finishes your sentences when talking
When you and your man are discussing something, and you pause for a moment, does he finish your sentence for you? If so, that’s a sign he’s interested in getting to know everything about you. When someone is in love with another person, they tend to express an increased interest in all things relating to them. Finishing your sentences is a way of showing support—the fact that he’s doing it means he’s confident around you, as well.
8. If you go quiet on him, he breaks the silence first
When your boyfriend starts initiating conversation with you, that’s a sign he likes you. If he’s been typically chatty and full of questions, but then goes silent on you for hours or even days, he has to be gently prodded by you to talk. This doesn’t mean he isn’t interested in talking to you—it means he doesn’t want to come across as too eager. In fact, if he breaks his silence first, it’s likely because he misses hearing your voice.
9. Holds your hand or touches your arm when near you
His touching you is a sign of his willingness to bond. When he holds your hand or touches your arm while talking to you, it’s usually because he likes you and wants your attention. If you’ve noticed him doing either, take it as a positive sign. Smiles at you: Smiling is a non-verbal way of expressing interest in someone else. It can be an indication that he’s interested in getting to know you better or even that he feels comfortable around you.
10. Gives you extra space if that’s what you want
when a man is falling in love with a woman, he will typically give her space so that he doesn’t overwhelm her or scare her away. If you’ve ever felt like your man is suddenly keeping his distance or pulling away from you for no reason, it might not be because there’s anything wrong with him; it could just mean that he’s trying to take things slow and keep from scaring you off before he has a chance to show you how much he truly cares.
11. He gets lost in your gaze
When you look into each other’s eyes, do both of you zone out and completely lose track of time? If so, it could be a sign he is slowly falling for you. Physical attraction is, after all, one of those all-important first steps to falling in love with someone, and eye contact is a very intimate way for two people to connect.
This deep connection that forms when you get lost in each other’s gaze has many wondering if it actually means something.
A recent study found that men who are interested in pursuing a romantic relationship with a woman will spend more time looking at her face (as opposed to other parts of her body) as well as maintain longer periods of direct eye contact than men who aren’t interested.
So, does getting lost in his gaze mean he is falling for you? It might! But don’t take his staring at your eyes as an absolute indicator; there are plenty of reasons why he might be staring at you!
12. He laughs at your stupidest jokes
It may sound corny, but it’s true. When you’re with a man, and he laughs at your stupidest jokes, it means he sees you as somebody who is fun to be around and finds your complete lack of anything resembling self-awareness to be completely adorable. It means that he doesn’t see you as just a pretty face; even though he’s attracted to what you look like physically, he also likes your personality.
13. He asks about your love life
If he asks questions like Do you have a boyfriend? and How’s your love life? that might be a sign that he is falling for you. Men do not just randomly ask these types of questions, so it could mean that he wants to know how things are going in your relationship in general. If he asks how your boyfriend is doing and whether or not he makes you happy, it means that he is starting to develop feelings for you.
14. He does things out of character for you
According to Dr. Les Parrott, when a guy suddenly goes above and beyond for you in ways that he never has before, it could mean he’s falling for you. He might just be in it for sex or friendship, but if he keeps going out of his way to do things for you and go places with you, there may be more to it, says Parrott. A man who is falling in love will find creative ways to spend time with you. The best part? This can happen even if he doesn’t realize it yet—so enjoy your new relationship status while it lasts!
15. He always reaches out first
It’s true that men have a difficult time reaching out first, but once he reaches out, he should keep reaching out. If you notice that your guy is making an effort to reach out more often than before, and if you also notice that you look forward to hearing from him each day, then you can be sure that he’s slowly falling for you.
16. He highlights the things you have in common
When you first meet, it can be all about what sets you apart. When a guy is falling for a girl, he’ll start to notice and appreciate commonalities between you two. If he’s paying attention, he may casually mention that your shared passion for dogs reminded him of his childhood pet or even remark on how similar your tastes in movies are not because you’re similar but because it makes him think of you and smile.
17. He remembers the things you tell him
If you tell a guy something specific like your favorite movie is Dirty Dancing and he remembers that it means he really pays attention to what you say. It means he likes learning more about you and taking an active interest in your life. Guys who are falling for you will remember little details like these. Paying attention to someone’s interests shows them how much they mean to you.
18. He shows that he isn’t interested in other girls
A guy who likes you will show his appreciation by keeping his eyes off of other girls. If he looks around at every pretty girl, that’s a bad sign. If he prefers to spend time with you and no one else, however, it means he has high hopes for you. This shows that he wants to invest in your relationship.
19. He likes using pet names on you
Pet names or terms of endearment are an adorable way to show love for someone. If he starts using terms like sweetie, honey, and dear to address you, then it means that he is trying to grow closer to you. Another sign is when he becomes affectionate towards you by pulling on your ear or cheek and gently caressing your hair.
20. He stalks you on social media
There are few things more flattering than a guy who’s interested in what you have to say. If he finds himself lingering on your Twitter or Instagram feed (without you prompting him), then he could be looking for more than just a daily dose of sarcasm; he could be interested in seeing how your life progresses. And, while that might sound like a bit much, it’s totally normal and not at all as weird as it sounds.
21. He doesn’t mind your flaws
Everyone has flaws—and guys are no different. If your boyfriend is truly falling for you, he’ll be able to see past those imperfections and focus on what makes you a great catch. Some people believe that love is blind, but it’s not; it just allows people to see each other clearly as they really are! If he likes everything else about you, then there’s a good chance that he sees your flaws as strengths rather than shortcomings.
22. He loves your quirks
Everyone has quirks and a guy who truly loves you will adore every one of them. If he’s continually asking questions about your habits, your likes, and even your dislikes, then he’s intrigued by you and won’t stop trying to figure out more about you. When we have an interest in someone else it stimulates conversation, which is actually a great way to get to know someone better.
23. His texts are becoming sweet and intimate
The way your boyfriend or husband treats you in person is generally how he will treat you on text, too. When he starts sending more I love you texts and gets a little sweeter with his words, that’s a great sign of hope. Don’t be upset if it takes a while for him to reach that point, though everyone moves at their own pace! Just let him know how much these sweet gestures mean to you and keep doing what you do.
24. He does his best to be supportive
If he’s making an effort to be there for you in your times of need, it could mean he cares deeply about you and is looking forward to a long-lasting, loving relationship. But as always, be careful not to read too much into his actions or words if he is truly falling for you, it will happen in its own time. Be sure to listen closely to what he says when you are together, though; look out for signs that he wants more from you (such as him bringing up future plans).
25. He likes to open up to you
It’s no secret that talking about your problems is an important part of a relationship. When he starts telling you more about his life, it’s likely because he wants to be closer to you. It could also mean that he feels like there isn’t anything to hide between you two. Trust is crucial for a healthy relationship, and if he feels like he can trust you, it means a lot! Don’t let him down!
26. He notices things about you that others don’t
This can include everything from your favorite color to your bad habits, such as biting your nails or drumming your fingers when you’re nervous. It could be something physical like a dimple in your smile or an adorable freckle on your nose. Or it could be more mental, like how much he enjoys hearing you talk about whatever interests you. Either way, if he notices things others don’t, that means he pays attention and cares enough to learn more about you. These are both signs of love.
27. He’s the most understanding person
If you’re always at his doorstep with a problem or concern, he doesn’t make you feel stupid or overreact. In fact, he takes time to hear you out and gives you good advice. Everyone needs someone like that in their lives, which is a good sign (Plus, it also shows that he’s kind.) He listens to what you say: This is especially important if you don’t have many people in your life who will actually listen when you talk.
28. He’s consistent
A lot of guys make promises they never intended to keep. A man who’s falling in love with you won’t let you down when he makes a promise, and will consistently be there when you need him. If he can be consistent with his words, it shows that he can also be consistent in his actions. If you have any doubts about whether or not your partner is really into you, pay attention to how often they show up for things and if they do end up missing something important, pay attention to how quickly they apologize and try their best to make it up to you.
29. He prioritizes your happiness over his own
When you’re his number one priority, he takes care of your needs before his own. When you’re happy, he is happy. It doesn’t matter how big or small your need is; if you want something, he will get it for you or help in any way he can. If a friend calls to cancel plans with him last minute because they got sick, then he will make sure you go out with him instead so that you don’t miss anything.
When it comes to matters of love and relationships, men can be notoriously difficult to read. Luckily, there are a number of tell-tale signs that a man is falling for you. If you see him taking an active interest in your life, or doing something sweet or unexpected on his own accord, then chances are good that he’s falling for you and making some bold moves behind your back. The above signs are surefire ways to know for certain that he is falling for you.
