19 Things Men Subconsciously Do When They Are Falling in Love

If he likes you, too, then why isn’t he telling you or showing you? Well, maybe he is – he just doesn’t realize it. Look out for these 19 subconscious signs that he’s into you:

1. He smiles at you a lot

How often do you find yourself just smiling at people you’re indifferent to? Not very often, I bet. But how do you react when you like someone and you just want to smile your head off? Put 2 and 2 together: he likes you and he can’t control how happy you make him.

2. You catch him looking at you

When we like something or we think it’s pretty, we stare at it. So, if you catch him looking…you know what that means. Especially if he tends to look away all of a sudden. It’s cute, isn’t it?

3. You make him laugh

Whether you’re trying to be funny or not, it’s working, because he thinks you’re hilarious and can’t stop laughing at your jokes. It’s not that he’s trying too hard, it’s that he really does think you’re great. Because he likes you.

4. He looks into your eyes

Eye contact is one of the sure signs that someone is into you. When you like someone, you tend to look deeply into their eyes for longer than you would with any other person. People in love stare at each other 90% of the time.

5. He listens to you carefully

When you talk, he doesn’t just nod absent-mindedly, he listens. Leans in, looks at you when you talk, and is genuinely interested in what you have to say. He remembers it, too, no matter how inane the conversation was.

6. He takes your side

His chivalrous side may come out when his favorite lady is being threatened; or just disagreed with. Take note – does he always take your side in arguments, disagreements, or debates? He can’t help it, he wants to be on your side.

7. He pays you compliments – but not only about your appearance

If a man compliments you, it will usually be about your appearance. Unless he really likes you, in which case he will see further than just that, and he’ll appreciate things about your personality, skills you have, etc.

8. He does little things for you

Does he ever bring you coffee? Does he hold doors for you? All these little gestures are indicators that he likes you and wants to do things for you to make you happy.

9. He finds excuses to see you

Think hard – did you really need to meet up for him to get that sweater he conveniently forgot right now? Was that CD he wanted to borrow so urgent? Of course not; he just wants to see you and he’ll make any excuse for it.

10. He mirrors your gestures and behavior

Did you know that when we like people, we tend to pick up on their specific gestures and behaviors? Pay attention and see if he imitates you without realizing.

11. He asks questions about you

You can tell when people just ask questions to be polite, but he is genuinely interested. He wants to know your likes, your dislikes, and what makes you tick. You fascinate him and he can’t get enough of you.

12. You make him nervous

It’s adorable when men are nervous, and you can definitely tell by the way he keeps running his hands through his hair or straightening his tie. He wants to look his best and he’s hyper aware of how we comes off.

13. His body language is open

You know how people tend to keep their arms crossed, in a guarded way? He doesn’t do that around you. In fact, his body language is completely open, and he leans towards you when you talk, palms up, and eyebrows raised. He’s comfortable around you.

14. He remembers details about you

No one can remember every detail you babble about, but he can. He knows your date of birth, your brother’s name, and how many pets you have. He is interested.

15. He opens up to you

You often have long conversations with him about everything under the sun, and he often opens up to you about deep things like hopes, fears, or intimate details he just doesn’t tell anyone else. You’re special.

16. He tries to make you laugh

His favorite thing in the world is to listen to you laugh, so he will try his hardest to make it happen. He’s always telling jokes around you in an effort to please you and make you laugh as much as you make him laugh.

17. He offers to help

Whenever you need help, he always seems to be there, ready to offer you whatever you need, whether your computer crashed, you need change for the bus fare, or you need some help sorting out some paperwork. He genuinely wants to help, and he loves being your hero. What does that tell you?

18. He doesn’t break his promises

This man is one of the most dependable people you know. If he promised you something, then you can be certain that he is going to keep his promise to you. If he said he’d meet you, he does, and if he promised to help you move this weekend, he shows up with coffee and three more friends.

19. You just have a feeling

Sometimes, there’s just a feeling you get around certain people. It’s like there is something in the air, an energy, it’s almost electric. Sexual tension is usually palpable, and if you keep an eye out, you’ll be able to sense it. Chances are, you aren’t imagining it, so if you like him back, I’d say so.
