How to Understand If Someone Fell in Love With You
The ability to read the body language of a potential partner helps you to understand what feelings they have towards you. The main thing is to pay attention to the context and not rely on only one or 2 gestures.
We at 5-Minute Crafts got interested in this topic and decided to tell you about 7 signs that indicate someone might be in love with you.
A person’s posture becomes relaxed, tensions disappears. The clinical psychologist Carla Marie Manly, PhD says, “When someone is ready to love and be loved, they’ll be open in their heart space rather than close off.” You’ll see a much more relaxed stance as one of the signs someone is in love with you.
Looking into the eyes
In 1970, Zich Rubin, a social psychologist, did research with 158 couples. He found out how much time couples look into each other’s eyes, and then asked them to fill out a questionnaire about how they relate to their partner. Rubin concluded that the more often the eye contact was, the stronger the relationship between them was.
Of course, if it’s just a passer-by looking straight into your eyes for a long time, it doesn’t mean he or she is in love with you. However, if you have known a person for a long time and they keep searching for your glance, it indicates their interest in you.
Talks about the future
If a person keeps coming up with plans involving you, it means they want to be together with you. They need to be sure that you also want to be by their side and that your meetings will become constant. It especially relates to discussing events in the future.
Meeting parents and friends
Introducing you to their parents or best friends is an important step that speaks to the seriousness of the intentions of your potential partner. If he or she didn’t have serious intentions, then they would not take the relationship that far.
Wish to be closer
When a person is in love, it’s natural for them to want to be closer. Look at these questions and answer them:
- Does he or she move their chair closer to you when you are sitting?
- Does he or she put their phone or pen next to you?
- Does he or she bend closer to you when talking?
- Does he or she try to get closer to you when walking together?
If you gave positive replies, it’s likely this person wants to be by your side.
Adjusting to your interests
Research held in 2013 showed that we are attracted to our polar opposites. For example, people with the so-called testosterone dominant character (highly analytical, competitive, and emotionally restrained) found more empathetic, caring, and gullible people attractive. Those in love are prone to adjusting to the interests of their beloved person.
Drastic change in the manner of communication
If you notice that he or she is drastically changing the way they behave with you, it’s a reason to ask yourself whether this person is indifferent to you after all. The logic is quite simple: At first, a girl or a guy shows their interest in you, and then they start to think they are too intrusive. That’s when the seeming coldness appears.
