10 Signs a Guy Loves You Though He Doesn't Admit It Yet
So, you are going out exclusively with this special guy and everything seems to be going great. He treats you like you're the only girl in the world and there is undeniable chemistry. It is obvious that he loves spending time with you. You admit to yourself that you are slowly falling for him, but there is one problem: You have no idea how he really feels about you. Why? He has not said a word about it.
Unlike women, men are not verbally expressive about matters of the heart. Men have their own reasons for clamming up, but if your man hasn't or won't talk about how he feels, it might all boil down to one (or more) of these five things:
- It is too early in the relationship.
- He is afraid to commit.
- He has been hurt in the past and fears rejection.
- He is simply acting like a normal guy who would rather do things than articulate them in words.
- He is falling for you but is too scared to say so.
Obviously, you are dying to know how he feels but do not want to appear too eager. You want the relationship to progress in a way that doesn't freak him out. If you are in this kind of dilemma, don't lose hope. There are ways to find out what his real feelings for you are without forcing him. How a guy behaves often gives away his true feelings. Here are the top ten signs that your guy loves you but is too scared to admit it. So girls, are you ready?
10 Signs He Likes You But Is Too Chicken to Admit It
- He would rather be with you than with anyone else.
- He remembers special occasions.
- He remembers things you say and do.
- He lifts your mood when you've had a bad day.
- He is protective of you.
- His eyes communicate what he is too scared to say.
- He wants to know more about you.
- He talks about the future with you in it.
- He gets upset when you don't return calls or messages.
- He likes to show his fondness for you.
1. He Would Rather Be With You Than With Anyone Else
Have you noticed that he would do anything just so he can spend more and more time with you? If this describes your guy, then he is sending you a big sign that he feels so much more than friendly love for you. If he is prone to canceling other commitments just to see you, changing his schedule just to jibe with your free time, or planning ahead to be with you in the future—he's falling for you.
Have you been out together and run into some of his friends, but he would rather stay with you than hang out with them? If he often gives up a night out and even a weekend with the boys, then you are one lucky gal. That is one sure sign of his interest in you. These acts are his way of saying that he loves being with you, period. No guy who didn't care would do that. This is a sign that you occupy a special place in his heart, even if he is too scared to say so.
2. He Remembers Special Occasions
Not many men make a point to remember a special occasion like a birthday or an anniversary. In fact, this trait can cause petty quarrels between people in relationships. If a guy you are seeing makes the effort to recall dates that mean a lot to you, that is another sign that he is really into you.
If he remembers important dates in your life, especially the date the two of you met, and he makes it a point to do something unexpected and special, you are one lucky lady indeed. This guy is truly listening and trying to be in tune with you. He is really determined to make you feel special.
Does he make any excuse to get you something sweet? Did he notice that you were looking at that sinfully moist chocolate cake (and then he got it for you because he "just happened to pass by" your favorite dessert shop)? This is a really romantic guy who can't get you out of his mind. These kinds of little things show how much he truly cares for you.
3. He Remembers Things You Say and Do
If your guy remembers all the things about you—trivial or not— he is into you. If you notice him remembering your favorite mocha frappe at Starbucks, that you still cry every time you watch Titanic, and even the color of your dress the first time you met, this guy is 100% hooked. Only a guy who cares would remember small details that mean a lot to you.
4. He Lifts Your Mood When You've Had a Bad Day
Is he sensitive to your emotions and aware when your day didn't go well? Does he go to great lengths just to lift your spirits and make you smile? These are his ways of telling you that he wants your happiness above everything else.
If he listens patiently to your rants and complaints, his deep concern mirrors his special feelings for you.
5. He Is Protective of You
If he acts very protective of you and makes sure you are safe at all times, that is one sign of his deep affection for you. When you are walking together, is he right next to you? Does he always let you walk on the safer side of the sidewalk? A man who is falling in love will make sure his girlfriend gets home safely (or will at least call to make sure she gets home). These may seem like small things, but together they are a sign that he wants to make sure you are safe and sound.
6. His Eyes Communicate What He Is Too Scared to Say
The eye is the window to the soul, and his intense eye contact (not the stalker type!) when talking to you reveals what his words cannot express. The way he gazes and looks at you shows his level of interest. A person looks at the object of his fancy in a different way. You know the look!
7. He Wants to Know More About You
If he is keen on learning more about you, your life, family, and everything, this is a sure sign that he is singling you out. He wants to find out if there are common interests for a future relationship. A man in love is interested in learning about the details of your life.
8. He Talks About the Future—With You in It
Men will never, EVER talk about future plans with anyone they they don't feel seriously about. If he talks about the future plans, or inquires about yours, this a sign that he wants you in his life longterm. If, without flinching, he talks about a family with you, he is already hinting that he wants you to be part of his future. That is definitely a cue that he would like to be with you for good.
9. He Gets Upset When You Don't Return Calls or Messages
If something as harmless as an unreturned call (when you are unable to answer the phone or message) triggers a jealous reaction, he is interested in you. If he gets a little jealous about the idea that you are possibly with another guy at that moment, you have snagged his heart for good.
10. He Likes to Show His Fondness for You
Physical attraction is always a part of the equation. When a guy is in love, he wants to touch the woman he loves often and in a very special way. If he loves to caress your face, or makes sure to gently brush hair off your face, or holds your hand instinctively when crossing a street, he is telling you that he loves you.
Is Your Guy in Love?
For many guys, actions speak louder than words. Men can be hard to figure out, either because they are clueless about their feelings or because they struggle to communicate. If your guy shows five or more of these signs, he definitely has feelings for you.
