When we’re falling for someone, it’s wonderful to find out where their first thought is every morning, isn’t it? 

It’s lovely to recognize the signs that they’re thinking about us just as much as we’re thinking about them. And while it’s not always obvious, if you pay attention, the signs are there. 

Let’s explore 10 sure-fire signs that someone thinks about you first thing in the morning. 

This way, you’ll be able to appreciate their subtle loving gestures and reciprocate in the same way. 

Read on! 

1) They plan activities and dates with you

When someone wakes up and thinks about you, you will notice the way they manage their time. In a nutshell, they will plan dates and other activities with you. 

They will make you a priority in their week, not an afterthought. 

Here are some of the strongest signs:

  • They will send a text in the morning, suggesting things to do together, like a movie, a new bar, etc. 
  • One of their suggestions can be just having breakfast together or a quick coffee on the way to work. 
  • They will definitely ask about your weekend, and propose something to do together. 

These suggestions and the way they consider you in their life reveal a lot about their feelings and their thoughts in the morning. It’s not about filling the time; it’s about creating more bonding experiences between you two. 

2) They remember the small details 

They will remember things you said in passing, and they will make a point to bring it up when they come up again. Your favorite color, dessert, or a goal you think is too out there, they will keep it in mind. 

Oftentimes, they will do things for you, like buying that dessert you love or gifting you that book you’ve been wanting to read for a long time, etc. 

Simple gestures, like making your favorite meal after a bad day at work, can be super meaningful as well. 

When someone cares about you, they show it through these actions. 

3) They text you in the morning 

Waking up and reading or getting that sweet text is such a great feeling! From a simple “good morning baby” to thought-out messages to help you start your day in the best way, what’s not to love?

It’s the way they find to rely on how much they care for you and how much of a priority you are to them. Of course, everything has to be backed up by actions, but it’s a sweet gesture that takes no more than a few seconds. 

If they show you how much they care through texts in the morning, enjoy the feeling and return it, if possible. 

Keep an eye out and pay attention to things like these so you can both make each other feel important

4) When you’re around them, you feel cared for 

When it comes to signs, they don’t get much clearer than this. 

When you feel at peace, when you feel loved and cared for, that’s when you know they keep you in their thoughts at all times. 

From small, sweet things like putting on your favorite music to a night of roses and wine and candles, you know you can count on them to have your best interest at heart. 

So, pay attention! How do you feel when you’re with them? Anxious, stressed, or at peace and happy? 

Frequently, our bodies will figure out things before our minds do. Our brain notices things faster than we can process them, and that’s why we get “gut feelings” that might help us make certain choices. 

5) You have similar goals in life

Common interests might make things work on a surface level, but having common goals is a must if you’re hoping for a long-term relationship. 

If you have the chance to build a life together, it’s because you share similar goals for the future. This is why you should pay attention to whether these goals are accompanied by the gestures we mentioned before. 

A lot of things can make or break a relationship, but the lack of common goals is what causes most breakups over time. It’s simply a lot more difficult to coordinate your efforts if you’re going for different things, despite how deep your feelings run. 

6) People tell you they mentioned you in their morning conversations

If you’re frequently mentioned in the conversations your partner has with others; you can be sure that they think about you first thing in the morning. Their coworkers or friends can even laugh about this with you! 

Either way, take it as it is: they think about you in their daily routine. You’re on their mind, and they know their priorities. 

Since they think about you all the time, your presence is natural in their conversations and actions throughout their day, even if you’re not physically together. 

7) They ask thoughtful questions

When you want to get to know someone, you need to ask in-depth questions. This takes time, effort, thoughtful conversations, and consistency. 

When someone asks good questions, it’s because they’ve been thinking about you, so in a nutshell, they have a genuine interest in you. 

If you’re not sure about their intentions, this can also be a sign that they want you as more than a friend. Here are some examples:

  • What are you most proud of about yourself?
  • What makes you think a movie is great?
  • What motivates you to wake up in the morning?
  • How would you like people to experience you?
  • What’s a dealbreaker in a romantic relationship?
  • How do you feel about the future?
  • What are your priorities right now?

These questions aim at getting past the surface, and if you’re seeing someone that you like, it might be a sign that they’re considering you for something a little more serious than just a casual hookup. 

Even if you’re on a first date with someone, these can help you determine whether you have long-term potential with them or not. 

8) They stand up for you in front of others

If they have feelings for you, and if you occupy their thoughts, they’ll be compelled to defend you when someone else gives you a hard time. They want you to know that you can count on them for everything, and what better way than to stand up for you when needed? 

In some cases, they won’t even let you talk about yourself negatively. They will want you to be kinder to yourself. 

When they tease you, you know it’s never meant with cruelty but rather affection and even love. 

9) They remember your schedule better than yourself

Have you mentioned weekend plans and then forgotten about them? 

Do you have a doctor’s appointment or an important meeting at work? 

They will remind you of these things without a second thought because you’re in their mind. 

This is a great sign that someone cares about you. When people fall in love, they tend to memorize every little detail of the other person’s life, and they might not say it explicitly, but this behavior is very telling. 

My boyfriend, for example, texts me throughout the day to remind me to drink water since I mentioned that I wanted to build that habit a few weeks ago. 

For me, it’s not just a reminder; it’s his way of saying that he cares about me, that he keeps my needs and goals in mind, and that I am an important person in his life

It may sound corny, but it’s the truth! 

Not everyone makes that effort, so it doesn’t go unnoticed. 

10) You know you’re their priority

It’s been super clear throughout this article, but when you’re someone’s priority, you notice. Someone who loves you deeply and authentically will keep you at the top of their list, even if it’s just as friends. 

They will worry for you, and they will make your life easier. 

They will also value your opinion, and they will ask about your feelings on different topics. They consider you when making different choices. 

If you need more examples, here’s one from my own life: when I’m having lunch with my boyfriend, he puts down his phone, and we spend the entire time just talking to each other. 

Neither of us makes the phone a priority when we’re together. 

To sum up, it’s all about building a connection

As humans, pretty much all that we do is motivated by connection. We need each other in our lives, and our relationships are essential for our happiness. 

These ten behaviors all point out to one fact: they think about you first thing in the morning, and you’re probably in their minds for the entire day, if we’re being honest. You’re not just an afterthought for them.

So, as you go about your life and build this new connection, don’t forget to reciprocate these small gestures with some of your own. 

Whether that’s through morning texting to preparing a nice meal or waiting for them with a warm drink after a cold day, it’s for you to decide. 

The important thing is to show up.
