Oh to be in love! 

Butterflies flutter around in your stomach, there’s a skip in your step, and the world around you becomes that much brighter.

For women who are deeply in love, their feelings often spill over to subtle behaviors that they may not even realize they’re exhibiting. 

Oftentimes, these also go unnoticed by people around them.

But if you look closer, these behaviors may present themselves quite…plainly. 

And today, we’ll uncover and explore these 8 subtle behaviors that women deeply in love usually exhibit.

1) She’s constantly thinking about that person. 

When a woman is consumed with love, that person will inevitably remain in her thoughts throughout the day.

Whether she’s at work, at the gym, or even in the car, you can be sure that she’s thinking of that person.

Sometimes, this manifests in the faraway look in her eyes or a subtle smile at the corners of her mouth. 

When you try to get her attention, she may even fail to notice you because she’s so wrapped up in her thoughts about that person.

And that’s what love does.

When you’ve fallen for someone, they’ll occupy your thoughts and never leave – even without you realizing it.

2) She smiles when she talks about that person.

Another sign of a woman deeply in love is when she smiles when talking about the person she’s fallen for.

The thing is – she’s not doing it deliberately. If you raise it to her she may be completely unaware of it.

Somehow her unconscious mind takes over and it manifests in her facial expressions. She may not only smile, there’ll also be a sparkle in her eyes.

It may go unnoticed, but when you catch it, it’s hard to ignore.

People in love do things that they may not understand, but that’s the beauty of it, isn’t it?

3) She goes out of her way to make that person happy.

Another behavior these women exhibit is that they are willing to go the extra mile for the person they’re in love with.

They may not even recognize this because, to them, this isn’t too much of an effort.

They’re motivated by the goal of making this person happy, and therefore, don’t feel as if what they’re doing is much of a chore.

And this may not be entirely obvious as well because women tend to be willing to do things for others. So to the unsuspecting eye, her actions may not be out of the norm.

But if you examine this a little closer, you’ll realize that the lengths she would go for that one individual seem to be more than what she’d do for the average person.

This would thus reveal how much that person means to her.

4) They remember small details.

A woman in love will remember every little detail of that special someone.

From important dates, and stories that they’ve shared, down to their habits and even characteristics that make them who they are – such as the way they smile or laugh.

Everything about that special someone is imprinted in their brains.

They won’t realize this behavior of theirs either – they’ll somehow be able to recollect the smallest detail of the person dearest to them and wonder how on earth they were able to store that memory.

Pay closer attention to what she says about others. If she starts mentioning facts about someone that no one else seems to remember – this may go beyond her having a good memory. 

She may simply be in love.

5) They encourage personal growth.

If you love someone, you’d naturally want the best for them.

As such, women who are deeply in love will try their best to encourage that person to pursue their dreams and become a better version of themselves.

She may not realize it, but she will somehow be willing to spend time and effort to do this for that person.

By encouraging that person to work on themselves, she shows that she’s interested in their wellbeing, more so than the average person.

Not everyone has the time or energy to do this with just anyone, so if you notice that she seems to be putting in more effort to build someone up, it may be a sign that she’s in love.

6) They give spontaneous acts of affection.

Sometimes words are insufficient to express love – we may get the urge to hug or give that special someone a kiss. 

And women in love do this as well.

When they’re with their partner, they may suddenly wrap their arms around them or give them a peck on their cheek – wherever the two of them may be. 

They could be sitting at a cafe people watching, taking a stroll along the river or simply enjoying each other’s presence at home. 

These interactions aren’t planned as well. Her affection for that special someone may just suddenly manifest in the urge to get a bit closer to them.

7) They mirror that person’s body language.

A person’s body language is usually a clear indicator of their thoughts.

When a woman falls in love, you’ll notice that she will start mirroring that person’s body language. If they’re speaking to each other, she will eventually start imitating (unknowingly) the other person’s actions.

If they cross their arms, lean on a chair, or start gesturing, she will eventually do so.

This is because her attention is captivated entirely by that person.

She may unknowingly gravitate to that person as well. When you see couples at cafes speaking to each other, do you notice that one will always be leaning towards the other?

That’s because there’s an unspoken connection between them that unconsciously makes one draw nearer to their partner.

8) They’re generally very happy

Women in love are generally happier.

Their outlook in life improves, they smile more and there’s an unexplained energy around them that may not have been there before.

This change in demeanor often goes unnoticed by her, but to others, it may not be so subtle.

If you notice that your friend or coworker suddenly appears more radiant, she’s glowing and her eyes seem to have a sparkle – you can be sure that she’s just found love.
