8 signs someone is falling in love with you that can’t be faked

Have you ever felt that spark, that undeniable connection with someone who makes you feel they might be falling for you? 

It can be both exhilarating and confusing, leaving you wondering if their feelings are genuine.

You’re not alone. Studies suggest relationship insecurities and anxieties are common and sometimes lead people to question what love feels like.

Yet, through my own experiences, I understand that true love goes beyond butterflies in your stomach. 

True love goes beyond mere words and gestures. It is a tapestry woven with trust, vulnerability, and deep connection. It’s a visceral, soul-stirring experience that leaves an indelible mark on your heart. 

So, how can you identify such an immense experience?

Let’s explore eight unmistakable signs someone is falling in love with you and how to recognize the profoundly exciting and sometimes bewildering world of love.

1) They have a genuine interest in you

When someone falls in love with you, their curiosity about your inner world knows no bounds. 

I’ve found that a genuine interest in my passions, dreams, and fears is a telltale sign of someone’s affection. 

They ask me thought-provoking questions, remember the stories I told them, and demonstrate a genuine desire to understand the essence of who I am.

(And, of course, I do the same for them.)

It’s during these moments of intimate connection I feel truly seen and appreciated for all that I am.

2) They prioritize your happiness

Along with their deep interest in you, your happiness becomes their priority–and they go out of their way to express this. 

That’s because love is not just a feeling. It is an action that manifests through small, everyday moments of kindness and thoughtfulness. 

I’ve seen this beautifully expressed as real-world heartfelt actions when someone loves me. 

I’m surprised with my favorite coffee because I mentioned I was having a tough morning, they plan a meal around my favourite food (a Japanese meal of homemade sushi and edamame), create a playlist for me, or write a love note they leave by my pillow. 

Their selfless acts of love remind me I am cherished and valued in ways that words alone cannot express.

3) They show openness and vulnerability

But it’s not just about actions. 

When developing true love, vulnerability is the key that unlocks the door to deep emotional connection. 

I’ve learned that when someone falls in love, they’re willing to bare their soul and share their innermost thoughts and feelings with me. 

They trust me enough to reveal their fears, insecurities, and past traumas, knowing that I will hold their heart gently and without judgment. 

This level of openness and vulnerability fosters a profound sense of intimacy and trust, which forms the foundation of lasting love.

4) They support you

Just as I listen to their vulnerability and encourage them to heal, when someone falls in love with me, they become my biggest cheerleader and staunchest supporter. 

That is because love is about standing by each other’s side through triumphs and tribulations.

They celebrate my achievements, offer words of encouragement during challenging times, and believe in my ability to overcome any obstacle that comes my way.

Their support gives me the strength and confidence to pursue my dreams with unwavering determination. 

It’s a wonderful feeling having someone like that by your side. 

5) They make plans with you in the picture

Of course, falling in love is also about carving out a new future journey we embark on together. 

When someone is in love with you, they include you in their hopes, dreams, and aspirations for the future. 

For me, when falling in love, we talk about the dream vacations we both want to experience, discuss the possibility of moving in together and which neighbourhood we’ll live, share our career aspirations, and chat about how we can support each other’s professional growth. 

In short, we envision a successful life filled with love, laughter, and adventure. 

Their willingness to include me in their long-term plans and make joint decisions reinforces our shared emotional bond and strengthens our commitment.

6) They are unwaveringly committed to you

You now know when someone falls in love, they are fully invested in building a future together and are willing to weather life’s storms and obstacles that come your way. 

Dedication. It is the ultimate expression of love.

I know this because perhaps the most profound sign that someone falls in love with me is their unwavering commitment to our relationship. 

Their commitment is not just words. It’s backed with consistent actions to demonstrate love, loyalty, and dedication to our relationship. 

With them by my side, I feel secure in the knowledge that our love is strong enough to withstand the tests of time.

7) They respect your boundaries

Of course, all this comes with respect for each other’s comfort.

Boundaries are a cornerstone of a healthy relationship. 

You’ll find that someone who falls in love with you will always prioritize your comfort and consent. 

It’s crucial to honor and respect these boundaries at every stage of a relationship; failing to do so can signal a major red flag.

Someone who is (healthily) falling in love with you will respect your physical, emotional, and personal boundaries and never pressure you into anything you are not ready for or comfortable with. 

Instead, they communicate openly and honestly with you. They seek consent and respect your decisions every step of the way. 

This mutual respect creates a safe, nurturing environment where love can flourish and grow. 

You deserve this.

8) They share an intuitive connection with you

As poets over the millennia have tried to articulate, love is a feeling not expressed through words. 

Love is a meeting of minds and souls. 

I’ve found that when someone falls in love with me, we have an intuitive connection beyond words and gestures. It’s lovely. 

We understand each other deeply and instinctually, anticipating each other’s needs, thoughts, and feelings without saying a word.

This intuitive connection fosters a sense of closeness and intimacy that is truly magical and reinforces the profound bond we share. 

I guess, there is no word to describe it other than love. 

Cherish love

Genuine love is a rare and precious gift. 

By recognizing these eight signs, I appreciate the depth of my partner’s affection for me. It allows me to open my heart and embrace the transformative power of love. 

I couldn’t ask for more; you shouldn’t settle for less. 

So when you find someone exhibiting these qualities, cherish them and invest in the beautiful power of a loving relationship. 

Trust in the wisdom of your heart, and let love guide you on the journey to a lifetime of happiness and fulfilment.
