Hey, are you starting to fall in love?

Do you think they could be the one?

That’s so great!

But do they feel the same way?

If you’re not sure, don’t worry, I’m here to help you figure things out.

In this article, I’m gonna share a list of 14 signs your partner genuinely enjoys spending time with you.

Ready to find out how they feel?

Off we go!

1) They initiate plans

Let’s start with the most obvious sign, shall we?

If your partner is calling you up and planning your dates, I’d say it’s pretty clear that they like spending time with you.

I mean, think about it.

If they didn’t enjoy your company, you’d probably be the one making plans. You’d probably be asking yourself why they’re always so busy on the weekends and why they never include you in their plans.


Actually, if you always let them initiate, they could be asking themselves whether you enjoy spending time with them!

Now it’s up to you to plan some fun and romantic activities for the weekend.

2) They spend most of their free time with you

Another sign that your partner genuinely enjoys spending time with you is that they usually hang out with you in the evenings after work.

And when it comes to weekends, you guys are inseparable for 48 hours.

Now, you know, they wouldn’t be spending most of their free time with you if they didn’t enjoy it.

And while it may not seem like it, they actually have a life outside of your relationship – friends and family that they’re obviously neglecting because they’re head over heels in love with you!

3) They invite you to hang out with their friends

So, when they actually remember that they have friends and make plans with them, what do they do?

They ask you to come along!

What’s better than having all of their favorite people (yes, that includes you) together?

4) They like sleepovers

Here’s the thing: 

When people are casually dating or they’re not sure how they feel about the other person, they don’t sleep over.

In fact, they make a rule of it. They always have some kind of excuse why no matter how late, they need to go back to their apartment (early meeting, etc.)

And because they don’t like sleepovers, they’ll rarely invite you to their place. If they do, don’t worry, they’ll have an excuse ready.

The good news is that if your partner makes a habit of sleeping over and loves it when you do, it’s a surefire sign that they enjoy spending time with you.

After all, a sleepover means that they get to wake up to you and have coffee and breakfast with you! How great is that?

5) They propose weekend getaways

What says “I love spending time with you” more than planning a weekend getaway, just the two of you?

Remember, there’s lots of other stuff they could be doing, from sleeping in to cleaning the house to going to the movies with their friends to having lunch with their parents.

And speaking of their parents…

6) They introduce you to their family

Listen up. Are you listening?

People don’t introduce their partners to their family unless they think the relationship is serious.

In order to bring you into their “inner circle” they really need to be in love with you and to see a future with you.

And in case it wasn’t clear as rain, it’s another sign that your partner genuinely enjoys spending time with you!

7) They want to spend the holidays with you

Already making plans for the holidays?

That’s a pretty big deal.

Holidays are considered special and meaningful occasions usually spent with loved ones.

So what does that mean for you?

It means that they view you as a significant part of their life.

Plus, it’s a great way to spend some quality time together and strengthen your bond.

8) They’re talking about the future

Do I hear wedding bells?

All jokes aside, when the person you’re dating starts to talk about the future and it involves you, it means that they think of you as an important part of their life.

Now, they don’t have to be talking about marriage and kids necessarily, it could still be early for that, but even planning their trip to Italy next summer – with you – means a lot.

And you know that nobody makes future plans with someone they don’t enjoy spending time with, right?

9) They text you to tell you they miss you

Look, it’s not always the big gestures (introducing you to the family and talking about the future).

Sometimes it’s the little things that show you how someone feels about you.

Like if your partner sends you texts while you’re at work saying, “Thinking about you” and “I can’t wait to see you again”.

It’s easy to get lost in work and answering emails, so if despite being busy they can’t stop thinking about you, you can rest assured that they’re totally into you.

10) They’re relaxed in your company

Here’s an interesting fact – it’s just about spending time together, it’s about how they act when they’re with you.

Are they tense and nervous? Or are they relaxed and at ease?

You see, body language says a lot about how someone feels. So if they’re relaxed and can be themselves around you, you can bet anything that they genuinely enjoy your company.

11) They’re affectionate

And while we’re on the subject of body language, physical affection is also a big indicator of how someone feels about you.

Does your partner like to hold your hand, hug, or cuddle?

Do they look for any excuse to touch you?

If they do, it’s a sign that they enjoy being physically intimate with you.

12) They love talking to you

Spending time with someone you like includes physical intimacy, sure, but it also involves talk.

Now, if you and your partner talk about pretty much everything under the sun and your conversations often run well into the night, it’s another sign.

Surely nobody would spend the night talking to someone unless they enjoyed it, right?

13) They’re actively engaged

What exactly do I mean?

I mean they’re not just physically present, I mean they’re all there – body, mind, and soul.

Whatever you guys are doing, they’re always actively engaged with you.

You won’t find yourself wondering if they’re bored or distracted because they’re genuinely enjoying themselves.

14) They share your interests

Finally, if you want to know whether your partner enjoys spending time with you, see if they’re making an effort to like the same stuff you like.

Of course, you don’t have to like all the same stuff or have the same hobbies, but the fact that they want to learn more about what you enjoy says a lot.

Like, for example, maybe you like to play board games and they’re more into going out to clubs. Because they enjoy spending time with you, they’ll be willing to stay in and try board games for your sake.

And there you have it. I hope this article puts your mind at ease and you realize that yes, your partner actually loves being with you.
