I bet there isn’t a single woman out there who hasn’t at one point asked herself that famous question: How does a man act when he’s falling in love with you?
It’s usually after a few dates and after some time of intense hanging out that a woman becomes skeptical when it comes to a man’s feelings. I bet you already know the drill:
You hang out, go on dates and everything’s perfect. He says all the right words and does all those little things that mean something to you.
He maintains eye contact for longer than usual, his texting is continual, he makes a genuine effort, he makes future plans and he introduces you to his best friends.
According to all those good signs, you get convinced that he’s starting to fall head over heels in love with you and you get a glimmer of hope that he’s on the right path to showing his true feelings for you.
And then, as you’re waiting for his confession of love toward you, he suddenly does something out of his ordinary pattern and confuses you with mixed signals.Imagine knowing what his every step means even before he takes it. Imagine knowing what to do in any given situation to inspire his devotion. Imagine being able to know what he wants even when he doesn’t know it.
You’ll learn all that and so much more in The Woman Men Adore program.
What happens is that you start suspecting everything, thinking that maybe you’re not right. Maybe he’s not falling in love with you after all and that everything is in your head.
A million questions going through your head and not a single answer. As a matter of fact, the only answer that you have is: Men are such weird creatures.
A lot of times, I have (and a lot of women have as well) witnessed the same situation and I understand how confusing and tiring this is.

How Does A Man Act When He’s Falling In Love?
There are a few things you need to pay attention to when it comes to learning what’s behind a man who is falling in love with you!
Body language signs, psychological signs, gestures and much more can tell you a lot about how a man really feels about you and that’s what you need to focus on!
To make it easier for you to understand, you’ll find these signs divided into two sections:
- Body Language Signs
- Psychological Signs
We’ll start with the first section, which is Body Language Signs! So, make sure to buckle up and enjoy the ride!
Body Language Signs He’s Falling In Love With You
Many women neglect this one aspect of a male’s psyche (and the psyche of all people in general), forgetting that body language is our biggest friend when it comes to our love life.
I like to say that body language signs tell us everything that our lips refuse to or cannot.
We can convert our words into lies or avoid admitting something but our body doesn’t have that privilege.
The desire of our body to show affection is deeply rooted in every human being and if you ask me, body language signs are more valid than anything else or any other signs out there.
Why? Because they’re not controlled by our mind.
Each body language action is done on a subconscious level, meaning that we’re not even aware of doing it.
We’re not in control of it and that’s why we cannot influence it.
So, how does a man act when he’s falling in love? You don’t need to conduct full research of his zodiac sign to find out if he loves you or not. You can simply see by the way he behaves around you and below are the most important and obvious signs to look for in his body language.
He stands as close to you as possible when you’re face-to-face
One of the things men do when falling in love with you is standing as close to you as possible when you’re face-to-face.
This is a clear sign that he’s drawn to you both mentally and physically and that’s why he can’t resist the urge to be as close to you as possible in all kinds of situations (during small talk, when you’re walking down the street, in a cafe or similar).
If a man does this on the first date, it doesn’t have to mean that he has immediately fallen in love with you and that tomorrow you can expect to hear ‘ I love you ’ but if a man keeps doing this after some time, once you know each other better, it’s a key sign that he’s falling madly in love with you!
His body and mind are mesmerized by you and that’s why it feels so good to be close to you.
And even though he hasn’t admitted this with his words yet, his body is doing it for him!
He smiles at you more and for longer
When we truly enjoy the company of someone special, we can’t help but have that weird facial expression and constantly smile for no apparent reason.
Recently, I was on a semi-date with a guy with whom I’ve been friends for years and I remember him smiling more than usual and his smiles wouldn’t just cease all of a sudden.
They were prolonged, as if he couldn’t stop enjoying being in nirvana next to me. (Note: A few days earlier, he admitted his feelings for me and that he should have done something earlier regarding the matter.)
So, if you notice that your man is smiling at you more and for longer, then you can be sure that he’s been hit by a Cupid’s arrow because this guy loves your company to the extent of not being able to stop smiling around you.
And he’s probably aware of how stupid it looks sometimes but he simply can’t help himself because it’s stronger than him!
He subtly touches you
When it comes to romantic love and affection, we often forget the power of a subtle touch.
You see, the biggest difference between a subtle touch and, let’s say, an intentional one is in the fact that subtle touches are done on a subconscious level.
It means the person who touched you hasn’t really had in mind to do so but their body has done it for them—their body revealed what their mind couldn’t.
You know that a man is falling in love with you if he often or constantly touches your shoulder, forearm, hand, the back of your neck or similar in a subtle way.
A man does this because he wants to comfort you, to make you feel safe and to shower you with warmth because of his intense feelings toward you.
And the best part of all is that he’s not even aware of any of it because he does all this subconsciously!
He laughs more at your jokes and funny expressions
Have you noticed that your man laughs more and more at your jokes and funny expressions? If yes, then you can be sure he’s falling hard for you!
Now, let’s see how laughing more is connected with his feelings for you?
Well, it’s pretty simple; him laughing more at your jokes and funny expressions means that he’s paying close attention to your every word.
He’s listening to you carefully and he can’t help but laugh his ass off at every witty and funny thing you say (even if you yourself don’t find it that funny).
Also, by doing this, his body is trying to subtly tell you that he enjoys your company more than anything and listening to you is like listening to a special melody that he’s become addicted to and all he can do is laugh and enjoy the moment!
He mirrors your body language
Some of the greatest dating advice and one of the best dating tips I’ve ever received is this one: Pay close attention to whether he’s mirroring your body language!
Before, I didn’t understand the importance behind this subconscious action but now it makes perfect sense to me.
You see, when someone is deeply attracted to you on both a mental and physical level, they will subconsciously start mirroring your body language because they want to win your approval and affection.
They want you to notice them too and to start falling hard for them as well. And this works on the following principle:
We are convinced that mimicking other people’s behavior (doing what they’re doing) will make them fall for us.
Yup. And it happened to me multiple times and I wish I had been aware of that before because it has made my love life much easier and more bearable.
So, if you notice that your man is mirroring your body language (touches his hair, nose or similar a few seconds after you’ve done so) then you know he’s totally into you!

He maintains deep eye contact with you
They say that the eyes are the windows to our soul, so there’s definitely something to it!
Maintaining deep eye contact comes from a strong urge to emotionally connect with someone we’re falling in love with.
It’s the biggest sign of strong affection toward another human being and it takes real courage to do it.
So, pay attention to his eyes! If you see that he maintains deep eye contact with you (looks deeply for a few seconds longer than usual) then you know he’s falling deeply in love with you.
After all, you can see it for yourself in his eyes because the eyes never lie!
And just like other body language signs, they tell us the things that our words cannot!
He tilts his head
This one probably sounds funny or confusing to you but I’ll do my best to explain it to you so that you understand the real meaning behind it.
When a man tilts his head to listen to you, he’s exposing himself in a vulnerable position, which is the opposite of a man’s instinct to act like an alpha male.
He’s being one hundred percent in the moment, focused on you only and absorbing your every word.
He’s subconsciously letting you know that you have his full attention because you have his heart.
He’s falling in love with every word you say, your every gesture and even with the way you breathe!
He takes in a deep breath when he sees you
When we’re falling for someone, it’s hard to stay sane and to pretend like it’s a normal thing.
We get anxious, we overthink and we fear that we’ll do something wrong and f’k things up instead of win that other person’s heart.
That’s exactly how a man who is falling in love is feeling when he’s around you.
When he sees you, he has this urge to take in a deep breath because by doing that, he’s trying to relax and gather the courage to not have a meltdown at the first word you say to him.
He takes a deep breath because he’s feeling overwhelmed by all these feelings he has for you and whenever he sees you, they intensify a little bit more.
And we all know that men are not that good at understanding and dealing with their feelings, so to them, this comes as a natural thing to do.
He plays with your hair
Men have always been crazy about women’s hair because there’s something truly mesmerizing about playing with a woman’s nurtured hair.
Now, I wouldn’t say that the sole act of playing with your hair means that he’s falling in love with you but rather the way he’s doing it can tell you a lot about his feelings for you.
Is he doing it gently while lightly massaging your scalp?
Is he looking you in the eyes while playing with your hair? Is he playing with your hair while passionately kissing you?
If yes, then you know that this is not just a hair game but there’s so much more to it!
He’s subtly trying to tell you that he wants to explore and touch all of you, including your hair and every other part of your mind and body!
He kisses you on the forehead
There are a wide variety of kisses and they all have a different meaning. And among all of them, I would accentuate a kiss on the forehead!
Why? Because a kiss on the forehead is one of the most powerful gestures of ultimate respect, care, affection and love. If a man kisses you on the forehead, you know you’re the lucky one!
You know that he’s crazy in love with you and that he wants to shower you with his romantic gestures and affection!
A kiss on the forehead means that he’s there for you no matter what, that you can rely on him and that he thinks you’re an amazing, special woman he needs to protect and do everything in his power to keep you!

He keeps his arm around you in public
As you probably already know, men are known to be extremely territorial, especially when it comes to their women.
So, if you notice that your man is keeping his arm around you in public, you know why he’s doing so!
He’s doing it for the sake of showing others that you belong to him and also for the sake of boasting about what an amazing woman he’s with.
He places his hand on your shoulder or keeps his arm around your waist in public because he’s marking his territory.
He’s letting other men know that you’re his because that’s what a man who is falling deeply in love does.
He wants to make sure to let others know that you belong to him and only him. (So sweet, I know!)
He (always) glances back one more time when you part
Remember those scenes in movies when a couple is at the end of their date night and they’re parting; they kiss and say bye or goodnight to each other and then there’s a scene where a woman is shyly smiling while walking toward her house and a guy is also smiling and turning around to glance back one more time to see her again!
Guys do this because they can’t stop looking at their woman and they want to use every second to do so and I swear that every time I see this, I can’t help but instantly melt because it’s one of the most romantic gestures out there and oftentimes, women are not even aware of it.
So, the next time you part from your man, pay close attention to whether he glances back one more time because if he does, you can be sure that he’s slowly but surely falling in love with you!
He has clammy hands
As already said, the feeling of falling in love is closely connected to the feeling of anxiety and other stressors that activate in our brain when we’re anxious about winning someone and making them fall for us as well.
One of the symptoms of a man being anxious about impressing and winning his woman is his clammy hands.
So, try touching his hand accidentally when he gives you something and pay attention to whether his hands are clammy.
If they are, then you know he’s going through some serious ‘I need to impress her’ phase because he’s falling crazy in love with you!
His face gets flushed (multiple times)
You’re probably thinking what kind of a sign is this? His face gets flushed? But let me tell you something.
Falling in love is all about getting flushed, having clammy hands and taking a deep breath every time you see someone you’re crazy about.
Why? Because all these are, let’s say, physical symptoms of being crazy in love with someone caused by a stress reaction and adrenaline.
Yup. When we’re totally mesmerized by someone, our body literally goes wild and starts exhibiting all those not-so-appealing symptoms like clammy hands and similar.
If you’ve already noticed or if you ever notice that your man’s face gets flushed multiple times and more than usual, then you know he’s going through some serious process of sorting out his feelings, understanding them, accepting them and indulging in them.
And he knows that he’s probably halfway to experiencing true love.
His eyebrows raise up whenever he sees you
Similarly to the symptom of taking a deep breath, our eyebrows can tell you a lot about how we feel when it comes to a particular person.
Indeed, eyebrows can tell you more than words can, so pay close attention to them!
If your man’s eyebrows raise up whenever he sees you, then girl, you know he’s completely smitten by you and his body can’t help but show signs of admiration, adoration and appreciation for such an amazing human being—you!
When he sees you, he literally freezes and all he can do is let his body language show how he really feels about you.
His raised eyebrows, his clammy hands and his flushed face are indicators of his ultimate affection for you.
You can notice this happen especially when he unexpectedly sees you somewhere because he wasn’t prepared for it and his feelings literally reach a climax within a second!
His pupils are huge
As already said, our eyes are the windows to our soul and maintaining deep eye contact is a sign of deep admiration and affection. But what about our pupils?
Well, when we’re totally mesmerized by someone, our pupils dilate (become huge) which is our brain’s response and it happens automatically.
So, when your man is looking you in the eyes (especially during deep, prolonged eye contact ), you should pay attention to his pupils as well.
If his pupils are huge most of the time, then you know what’s happening; he’s falling more and more in love every second spent with you!
Psychological Signs He’s Falling In Love With You
Contrary to body language signs that cannot be controlled by our brain, psychological signs are those signs that we consciously make when we’re falling in love.
These signs include actions, reactions, decisions, sacrifices and many more and they are the ultimate signs of his deep affection toward you!
When a man is crazy about someone, he can’t help but show it with the little things and not-so- little things that mean a lot to you.
He does that because he has this urge to impress you, to make you feel special and loved.
When a man is totally and madly smitten by you, he has only one goal in his head and that is winning you!
He’ll do anything in his power to let you know that he’s the right one for you and that’s exactly what you need to pay attention to.
If you notice that your man exhibits some or all of the following signs, then you know he’s in the process of falling in love with you:
He shows off
When a man is in the early stages of falling in love, he immediately jumps into ‘alpha’’ mode, where he exhibits all of his macho qualities for the sake of impressing you.
That includes showing off, bragging about his accomplishments, trying to make you laugh all the time and whatnot.
Without a doubt, this is one of the biggest signs that a man is utterly smitten by you. He can’t help but start looking for ways to show you that he’s the right one for you.
And if you’re surrounded by other men, he will be even more inclined to show off his ‘alpha’ side.
Why? Because he has this urge to be the best, the One and the only one for you. He wants you to notice him, to notice his qualities and to see what an amazing man he is!
He constantly strives to be around you
When a man is falling in love with you, he will constantly strive to spend as much time as he can with you.
If you’re wondering why, it’s because he’s deeply attracted to you both mentally and physically and he can’t get enough of you.
If he’s not spending time with you, then he’s probably thinking about you all day until he finally sees you.
And that’s the main reason why he initiates dates and other activities with you.
He wants you to be a part of his life and vice versa. He wants to build a healthy, lasting relationship with you. And to him, it doesn’t matter what you do together as long as you’re together.
Your presence is everything he needs to keep him alive because he got addicted to you, your personality, your laugh and your way of thinking.
And he needs a dose of it every day, every minute and every second.
He kisses you like he really means it
One of the major differences between a man who is far from falling in love and one who is in the process of falling in love is in the way they kiss.
If a man kisses you only for the sake of kissing, it’s a clear red flag that he is not falling in love with you.
But if a man kisses you like he really means it, then you know he’s doing it with passion, with will and with the ultimate attraction.
Now, how will you know when a man kisses you like he really means it?
You will know because you will feel it from your head to your toe.
You’ll get these warm sensations and you’ll feel as if you’ve entered some special, magical place.
And you’ll feel it in your gut as well!
He sends you random texts on a daily basis
Many women neglect the power of random texts because they don’t pay attention to what’s really hiding behind them. Don’t worry, now I’ll tell you.
We all know that men are not really into texting and they would do literally anything other than that but when a man starts falling in love, this changes.
The only thing he can think of is you and when he’s not next to you, his cellphone becomes his best friend.
So, him sending you random text messages on a daily basis equals letting you know how much he misses you.
Also, he wants to share everything with you because everything reminds him of you.
When we think a lot about that one special person, they become a part of our mind and daily life and that’s why he has this urge to constantly be connected to you.
He absorbs your every word when you speak
Now, let’s admit to ourselves one thing:
When a guy is not really emotionally invested or interested, there isn’t a thing in the world that would force him to listen carefully to that woman.
But when a guy is feeling the complete opposite, he will absorb your every word when you speak, aka he will listen to you carefully.
Why? Because he’s interested in everything you have to say to him.
He wants to know every little thing about you (even though he probably already knows almost everything about you but still he’s interested in learning something new).
When a man feels strong and deep romantic feelings for you, all he can do is listen to you and create a mosaic of your personality, habits, the things you like and dislike and your hobbies and hide it in a special compartment of his brain.
He introduces you to his friends and family
When a man falls honestly in love with a woman, he will want to introduce you to his important people—to his friends and family.
He will want to do that for the sake of showing them what an amazing woman he met and because you’ve become an important part of his life!
And he wants everyone to be familiar with it.
By introducing you to his friends and family, he’s making his feelings legit and that’s exactly what he wants and needs!
He wants to bring you into his circle of people and let them know that now you’re one of them!
He puts in major effort
Effort is one of the most important things in dating, as well as in every healthy relationship or marriage.
Effort is timeless and the most powerful way of showing your special someone your feelings.
If your man is putting in the major effort, then you know he’s falling deeply in love with you.
And you know that he is putting in the major effort if he: always makes sure to arrive on time (and if he fails, he deeply apologizes for it), helps you with everything, compliments you, pays attention to the little things, surprises you on a regular basis, always makes sure to be available when you need him, helps you carry things, helps you solve problems and so on.
Here’s some of the most valuable relationship advice I’ve gotten so far:
You know that a man is putting in major effort when he gives his best to win you, to make you feel special and to constantly remind you that you’re his honey bean and that he’ll do whatever it takes to make you happy.
Because your happiness is a reflection of his own!
His friends and family know (almost) everything about you
Do you have a feeling that your man’s friends and family know literally everything about you and you yourself know that you haven’t shared those things with them?
Then you know that your man was the one who did it.
Then you know that he thinks about you all day and all night and he can’t help but talk to his friends and family about you whenever he can.
He does this because he’s falling crazy in love with you and therefore, he has this urge to mention you in his everyday conversations with his close people.
Girl, you’re the only thing he can think of no matter what he does.
You’re constantly on his mind and that’s why he can’t help but convert his thoughts into words when talking to other people.
He makes even the dullest activities and chores fun
When a man is falling in love with you, he’s determined to make you laugh all the time and to make your every activity or chore a source of pure fun!
For example, let’s say you’re going grocery shopping and your man is constantly throwing some puns and entertaining you with different perspectives on food like pretending that he’s a cucumber or similar.
Or that you’re washing dishes together after dinner and while washing, he dances around, sings and pretends like he’s a washing master even though he probably has no idea what he’s doing.
He’ll do all this because he enjoys spending time with you and he wants to make you laugh by constantly entertaining you no matter where you are at that moment.
Basically, if a man is completely crazy about you, just staring at the ceiling with him would be considered as the ultimate fun activity!
You are his booster of positive energy and spending time with you is something he doesn’t take for granted.
He enjoys every second of it and makes sure to show it, too!
He makes you laugh (all the time)
Now, let me explain to you how men perceive a woman’s laugh: When a woman is laughing, it means she’s relaxed, content and happy.
And if I can make her feel that way, it means I’m winning her and I’m worthy of being with her!
When a man is falling in love with a woman, he will do everything in his power to make her feel good all the time—to make her laugh!
This means even going out of his way to laugh at his own misfortune because if that means that you’ll laugh too, he’s fine with it.
And sometimes, because of this urge to constantly make a woman laugh, some men tend to overdo it.
They forget when the right time for a good laugh is and when the time for being a little bit serious is.
However, of course, we will not judge them for it because it’s just how they function.
He prioritizes you
If you want to find an answer to the question: Is he falling in love with me or does he love me? you need to pay close attention to the aspect of prioritizing.
Why? Because when a man is totally crazy about you, he will prioritize you. And when he isn’t, he will take you for granted or treat you like an option instead of a priority.
When a man is totally crazy about you, he makes sacrifices for you and stops thinking only about himself.
He pays attention to how you’re feeling about his actions and he gives his best to act accordingly and avoid disappointing you in one way or another.
And if he made it clear that you’re his top priority from day one, it’s a good sign that your man fell in love with you at first sight. Yes, that’s possible too.
He misses you like crazy when you’re apart
Has he ever said that he misses you like crazy when you’re not together?
Even if he hasn’t, you can still know whether he misses you like crazy when you’re apart by paying attention to his actions!
Does he text you on a daily basis, retelling you some funny situations that happened that day and keeping you updated on his whereabouts?
Does he surprise you from time to time by coming to visit you when you least expect it?
Does he send gifts to you when you’re at work or at home?
Does he constantly ask you about when you will be free so that you two can finally meet up?
If yes, then you know he misses you like crazy when you’re apart and he can’t wait to see you again!
If he does all this, especially if you’re in a long-term relationship, I dare say that this guy loves you more than anything and you’re the only thing that’s on his mind 24/7!
He genuinely cares about you and every aspect of your life
How does a man act when he’s falling in love with you? Here are some questions you should ask yourself and if your answers are positive, then you know he genuinely cares about you and every aspect of your life.
When you’re going through some difficulties, is he always available and willing to help you overcome them?
When you’re feeling distressed, does he make his best to make you feel better? Is he always interested in what you have to say about your work, friends or family?
If all of this is true, then it’s pretty clear that y ou are his main priority and that’s why he needs to make sure that you’re happy and content.
And if you’re not, he needs to do everything in his power to change it and bring a smile to your face again!
He opens up to you
I think that all women would like to know how to make a man open up to us because opening up doesn’t usually come natural to most of them. However, when a man is falling in love, he naturally becomes more open about his feelings and the things going on in his life.
You have no idea how hard it is for a man to admit to a woman when he’s going through some hardships or similar.
So, if he does, it means he trusts you more than anyone and he appreciates your advice. It’s also a great sign that he’s trying to connect with you on a deeper level.
He wants you to be familiar with everything that’s going on in his life because he sees you as a great part of his life.
He protects you
When someone says something bad about you, does he come to stand by your side and contradict them?
When some random guy is trying to seduce you by force, does he tell them to back off or they’ll have to deal with the consequences?
Does he always walk on the side of the sidewalk that is next to cars or other vehicles?
When a man is completely and crazily in love with a woman, he will protect her in every single way possible.
He will even protect her at the cost of hurting himself.
Why? Because you mean life to him.
He’s in love with you with every pore of his being and he would never forgive himself if something bad happened to you and he could’ve prevented it.
If your man acts like this, then you know he’s a keeper!
I hope this article helped you realize how does a man act when he’s falling in love. If you’ve recognized most of these signs in your man’s behavior, it’s pretty obvious that he’s falling for you.
All in all, if your man prioritizes you, protects you, surprises you, listens to you, introduces you to his friends and family and puts in the major effort, then you know he’s falling in love with you.
Then you know he’s a selfless man whose biggest goal is making you happy!
Then you know he’s a keeper who will always keep you close to his heart!
