Guys can be as different as night and day. Guys like to think they are simple creatures, but they are just as complex and mysterious as women can be. Indeed, they might be at their most cryptic when falling in love.
Every man has had different experiences with women and deals with them in their own unique way. There are, however, similarities in how men express their love for women.
Here are 11 things men do when they are falling in love with you:
1. He Will Hold Your Purse When He’s Falling in Love
Regardless of what men do for a living or what their place in society is, they, in general, do not want to be perceived as weak, servile, or submissive. If they are holding your purse, they don’t care how others perceive them because they are full of another emotion that is pushing away all other worries or concerns.
2. Shop For Feminine Hygiene Products
If they are falling for you, then you could ask them anything and they will do it to earn your affection. They don’t care about appearing weak or uncomfortable. They only want you to be happy and if feeling uncomfortable for a few minutes in the grocery store is all it takes, then consider it done.
3. He Remembers the Little Things if He Is Falling In Love
When he really cares, he remembers how you take your coffee. He remembers your favorite restaurant, your favorite food, or your favorite TV show. He remembers your birthday. He remembers because you have become very important to him and will become a bit of a fanboy of your life.
4. He Brags About You
He constantly tells others how great and wonderful you are. He is proud to have you on his arm. He thinks that you are the best thing since sliced bread and will let everyone know it.
5. He Listens Carefully
When you are talking, he will listen very carefully to you because he wants your attention and everything about you is interesting to him. He is becoming a fan boy and will soak up everything there is to learn about your life and who you are.
6. He Teases You
Guys tease each other to show affection. If he teases you a little, he is showing you he cares. He is trying to start a fire by striking little sparks. He will also laugh it off when you tease him in return.
7. He Sacrifices for Your Happiness
He will drive two hours round trip to fix your printer for you before heading off to work. He doesn’t mind because you are important to him. Your happiness is becoming more important than his own comfort. He will go out of his way to make you happy, even if he sacrifices a bit of his own happiness to do it.
8. He Goes The Extra Mile if He Is Falling in Love
It isn’t enough to go out and get you dinner – he will drive across town to get dinner from your favorite restaurant. If he is falling for you, then he will go the extra mile to make even small things super special.
9. He Thinks You Are Beautiful When You Think You Aren’t
You know those mornings when you roll out of bed, shuffle to the kitchen and make a cup of coffee while scratching your forehead and sporting hair that looks like Medusa’s old wig? Yeah, he still thinks you are the most beautiful woman in the world even when you are absolutely convinced you look like a train-wreck. It doesn’t matter to him. He only sees the perfect you.
10. He Cares About Your Friends and Family
When he falls for you, then your tribe becomes his tribe. It is hard to explain, but people and things that are important to you become very important to him. He wants to protect you and knows that if your friends or family are hurting, then you will be hurting.
He will walk into hell and back to make sure that you do not get hurt, even obliquely through your family. He will make himself available to them, help them do chores or fix things, bring them dinner, drive them home or take care of them as if they were his family.
11. He Lets Himself Be Vulnerable
When he really loves you, he will let himself be weak in front of you because he trusts you implicitly not to take advantage of that vulnerability. Guys, in general, wear emotional armor all of the time and feel very uncomfortable taking it off. If he takes that emotional armor off and lets you inside, then he really is falling in love with you. Psychologists note that gentlemen often struggle with opening up to communicate. So when you crack open that shell, it’s a sign of true love.
