We women sometimes have a hard time figuring out what guys think and how they feel.

Men can be kind of mysterious since they don’t like to share much or talk about their feelings.

But we’re easier to figure out, right?


It turns out that a lot of guys have a hard time understanding women.

Go figure…

One of the things they seem to struggle with the most is figuring out if a woman is in love with them.

I guess men really are from Mars and women are from Venus.

So, for all you guys out there who are wondering, “Does she love me or not?” here are 13 things women do when they’re madly in love.

Let’s get started:

1) She looks her best for you

No matter how good-looking a woman naturally is, when she’s in love, she’ll put in the extra work to look stunning for you.

From her hair and make-up to her cute outfits to her nails, no detail is too small. She even smells amazing! 

Even if she’s a modern woman and a feminist, if she’s in love with you, she’d never risk losing you by showing up looking anything less than perfect!

She needs you to be as madly and deeply in love with her as she is with you.

2) She flirts with you

You know, flirting isn’t just something you do when you’re trying to win someone over and get them to go out with you.

People also flirt when they’re in relationships!

In fact, it can be a powerful way to keep the spark alive.

When a woman is madly in love with you, she’ll continue to flirt to keep the romance and attraction alive.

Watch out for her playful teasing, compliments, seductive glances, and physical affection.

3) She spends her free time with you

It would be perfectly understandable that after a long day at work, your woman would want nothing more than to go home, put her feet up, and watch some Netflix.

Yet here she is saying yes to dinner and a movie with you.

And she’s well within her right to hang out with her friends over the weekend and have Sunday lunch with her parents.

But she says yes to hiking and mountain biking and basically, spends all her free time with you.

Now if it’s not already clear to you, her actions scream that she’s madly in love with you.

4) She really cares about what you have to say

Let me tell you something about women in love – it’s like we’re under a spell.

That means that no matter how boring what you’re talking about is, we’ll find it interesting.

The veil of love will make us genuinely care about who won the game last night or why the KEF LS50 speakers are the best on the market.

Of course, I’m exaggerating to make a point – when a woman is in love, she’ll pay close attention to everything her man says and she’ll be sure to remember it.

5) She texts you to tell you she misses you

Here’s a question, does this woman you’re dating text you during the day?

Do you get a “Good morning, how did you sleep” when you wake up or a simple, “Miss you” when you’re at work?

These are signs that she’s thinking of you, and she wouldn’t be unless she was in love. 

*Word of advice: If you’re in love, don’t leave her waiting to hear from you. Text her back to let her know you miss her too!

6) She opens up to you

Even though women are known for being more talkative and more open than men, it doesn’t mean we’re gonna reveal our innermost thoughts and feelings to just anyone.

For a woman to open up and talk about stuff that’s important to her, she needs to trust the other person and feel close to them.

We’re not going to talk about what’s troubling us with a guy we just started dating or that we barely know. We’ll turn to our siblings and close friends.

So if she’s opening up to you, it means that she feels like she knows you and can be herself around you. In other words, the lady is head over heels in love.

7) She remembers the small stuff

Like how you drink your coffee.

Your best friend’s name when you were growing up.

The book you mentioned on your first date.

Your dog’s favorite toy…

When a woman remembers everything you’ve told her, even the small stuff, it means she’s paying close attention and that every word you utter is important.

It’s another sign she’s in love.

8) They take an interest in your hobbies

Did it ever occur to you that if she hadn’t met you, she’d never spend her Saturday nights playing FRP (fantasy role-playing games)?

But she does. She meets you and your FRP buddies, she gets into character and she spends her night playing with you guys.

Now you’re probably thinking to yourself, “Well, it’s not like anyone is forcing her” and you’re absolutely right!

She chooses to play FRP because she takes an interest in your hobbies.

She wants to spend as much time with you as she can so that she can get to know you better.

Can you guess why?

9) She introduces you to her friends

The truth is that if you were just another fling, she wouldn’t bother introducing you to her friends.

Think about it:

She’s sharing her life with you more deeply by bringing you into her social circle. She’s hoping you like her friends and that they like and accept you.

It means she’s emotionally invested in your relationship and that she cares about you.

10) She introduces you to her family

Well, now things are getting really serious.

Meeting her friends was one thing, but meeting her family? That’s a whole other ballgame.

A woman would only introduce you to her parents if she was in love with you and saw a future with you.

11) She sweeps your friends off their feet

I bet your friends have told you that of all the girls you’ve ever dated, she’s their favorite – a real keeper!

Am I right? Do you want to know why?

Sure she’s awesome, but she also works hard to impress your friends and win them over.

Her charm, sincerity, and genuine interest in your friends’ lives make them feel valued.

The fact that it’s so important to her to be accepted and liked by your friends is a sign that she’s committed to your relationship and sees a future in which your friends play a big part of your shared life.

12) She works hard to impress your family

A woman who’s deeply in love with you will make a real effort to impress your family – especially your parents.

The way she sees it, if she’s going to have a future with you, she needs them to see how great she is for you.

She knows that family comes first and how important it is for her to build a positive relationship with yours.

She sees a future with you and that future involves harmonious connections with your loved ones.

13) She talks about the future

Finally, when a woman is making plans about the future that involve you, it’s a surefire sign she’s madly in love.

Whether it’s making long-term commitments, setting goals as a couple, or talking about shared dreams, it’s clear that she sees you as part of her life going forward.

Maybe she’ll bring up spending the holidays with you, living together, her career aspirations, and maybe even marriage and starting a family!

Her openness to discuss the future makes her emotional investment in the relationship and her desire to build a life together with you crystal clear.
