7. You scroll through his photo album all day

Your favorite pastime is going through his Instagram profile and Facebook album. You want to see how he looked a few years ago. You want to know his friends. You want to know the places he visited and the kind of food he likes. You want to know if there is anything common between you two.

8. You have become calmer

Has anyone ever told you that you have become a lot calmer lately? Do you feel so too? Do you feel like a different person? Perhaps your love for him has brought about this much-needed change in your personality. Being around him gives you a sense of security and makes you a calmer person.

9. You feel safe when he is around

10. You can talk to him for hours

From his favorite show to his favorite vacation spot, you wish to know every little detail about him. You can spend hours googling him and stalking his social media profiles just to know more about him.

He might have told you how much he loves his grandma’s roast chicken and how much he misses going to the amusement park. Such little details are quickly registered in your mind, and one fine day, you surprise him with a roasted chicken you made for him or plan a date at the amusement park. You do this because you care for him and wish to make him happy.

13. You feel butterflies in your stomach each time he is around

You know that weird feeling in the stomach when you are super-excited, don’t you? If this mostly happens when he is around, you can be sure that you have feelings for him. Your palms might get sweaty, and you might feel like your heart is about to burst out of your chest. These are all signs that tell you are elated to be around him.

14. He drives you crazy, but you don’t care

He might not always reply to your texts or meet you on time. He may not even remember your birthday unless you remind him about it. He may not be perfect and may not even be your “type.” He may drive you crazy sometimes. Nonetheless, you adore him.

15. You like him with all his flaws

You have a personal dislike for guys who doesn’t shave regularly. But with him, you cannot stop gushing how his untrimmed beard suits him. Why this change in preference now? Well, you have fallen so hard for this man that even your biggest pet peeves take a back seat for him.

Previously, even a single hour of extra work would drain you out, but now, you feel like you can work for days without a break. Even if you were to miss your morning coffee, you would still feel energetic and super-active. You feel high on life, high on love.

17. You feel invincible

18. You defend your “man” whenever required

19. You can confide in him

You are so comfortable with this guy that you can easily share your deepest, darkest secrets and fears with him. You do not feel embarrassed about anything, and you want him to know everything there is to know about you.

20. You enjoy the silence

When we are in the company of people, sometimes, moments of silence can become awkward. But this is not the case with him. Even when not conversing, you still feel comfortable in the silence that prevails between unspoken words.

21. You rely on him

It’s 3 am. You are working on an important assignment when suddenly your lappy crashes. You panic, and the first call you make is to him. He may know nothing about computers, but you still call him because you believe he will solve this problem.

22. You completely forget about all your past relationships

You have experienced unrequited love in the past or have gone through a break-up, but this new man enters your life and overshadows all of them. This could only mean that he brings so much joy to your life that you have gotten over any unresolved feelings you held for your ex.

23. You do not find other guys attractive enough

What if Brad Pitt, Robert Pattinson, or your favorite actor were to ask you out right now? Would you say, yes? If this question gets you thinking for even a moment, you know for sure that you have someone who makes these hunks seem unattractive.

24. You start to see your future with him

If he is a part of all your plans for the future, it is a tell-tale sign that you are head over heels in love with him. You have probably even planned your dream wedding with him because you see yourself with no one but him.

25. You feel it in your bones

Lastly, you just know it. You know it in your heart, and you know it in your brain that he is the one for you. You can feel that deep connection, and every inch of you is soaked in his love. Your instincts scream to hold on to him and never let him go. Do not let this guy slip away.

If you can relate to any of these signs, you may very well love him. The romantic songs you have been listening to lately, the broad, permanent smile on your face, the frequent phone checking, and most importantly the inner peace and happiness in your heart point to the strong possibility indicate that you have truly, madly, deeply fallen for this person. We wish you all the best and hope you make the perfect couple.
