June 03, 20224 min read
There is a reason why LOVE has featured as one of the central topics throughout history because romance and love feels absolutely fantastic. But is love always wonderful? Have you ever asked yourself this question- They Love Me, They Love Me Not?
In reality love is unpredictable, frustrating and many times even painful. While there are many benefits, these don’t come without effort, challenges and some emotional damage. Love is usually nurturing the early stirrings of attraction and strengthening them into a comfortable and emotional connection.
Figuring out whether or not someone loves you in the way you love them is overly complicated and to be honest a little heart breaking. People usually say that you would know if someone does love you but unless you can read someone’s mind, there is no sure shot way to find out how they feel about you unless they tell you themselves.
But you can sense someone’s feelings through some subtle signs. We can’t give you surety but here are some body language signs that someone is in love with you.
Closeness / Proximity
Just answer these questions; Do they make an effort to get closer to you? Do they inch closer to you while you are sitting? Do they place objects like their phone or drink in your physical presence or near to you? Do they lean in closer to you while talking? If you answered yes to many of these questions then the desire of this person to be closer to you is very evident. It's the leaning that says that ‘I am comfortable with you and want to be with you’.
If someone is in love with you, it's highly natural for them to feel protective of you.When we love someone, we care about their safety. There are subtle things that you might have even missed. Whether it's opening doors, putting you on the other side and then walking down the street side or even covering you from someone's uncomfortable looks.
Eye contact is what ultimately triggers attraction. So if they are looking into your eyes comfortably, it communicates their desire to be with you. Eye contact is the most vulnerable act and a bonus to if they smile while maintaining that eye contact.When we’re in love, we almost cannot help but smile around our love interest.
If you think about it, you rarely touch people that you are uncomfortable with or possess no feelings for. But not all touches are signs, you need to watch out for the unnecessary touches because it is one of the biggest physical signs that someone might harbor feelings for you. Ask yourself these questions; Do they brush up against you? Do they make an effort to touch you? Do they touch your arm while talking to you? And if they are craving your physical touch you will see that too.
Frayley says“Love often brings with it tunnel vision”. Attention is usually a huge sign that someone has feelings for you. So if they are able to concentrate on whatever you are saying without getting distracted by anything around you then you might be able to think about the next step with this person. Attention is not only their way of showing you their affection but also the respect they have for you.
Signs a Man is in Love
In addition to all these, men pose other signals as well. The first one being if he is nervous, childish or awkward around you then that might point that he has feelings for you. Most men do not sparingly talk about their intimate life with you and if he shares conversation about his problems, family or friends then that means he feels connected to you and trusts you to understand him. While walking next to you does he set his pace according to yours or does he walk at his own pace which would typically mean he is self involved.
Signs a Woman is in Love
A woman's biggest signal of affection is them giving you her undivided attention. She puts her energy and time into getting to know you based on what you share with her. If you notice that she fixes her appearance more when she is around you then she is definitely giving you a hint to notice her. When a woman develops feelings for someone, she usually plays with her hair or her jewelry as a soothing technique to calm her nerves while talking to them. We all are aware of how a woman faces her knees, feet and even hips towards the person they like because they are more generally more open towards that person.
All cute nicknames, slight brushes, arm touching aside, for all these signs to actually be a love signal, they should feel comfortable and easy and not charged and forced. Many times we pick up these hints in platonic relationships as well and at that time communication is the only source as to how you can be sure of the love.
