Are you wondering whether a certain man is falling in love with you?
Would you like to know the body language clues that give away his feelings for you?
If so, you’re in luck.
There are lots of tells that men can’t help but give away as their emotions take over, and I have listed 24 of them in the guide below.
If you can remember this list of body language signs and look for them when you are together, you will get a much clearer picture of how he feels about you.
However, before we dive into the list, let me tell you a quick story that can intensify a man’s feelings towards you.
It’s based on a primal aspect of male psychology called the ‘Hero’s Instinct’.
I have been intensely studying this psychological trigger – and the dramatic effect it has on men – for many years now.
I first stumbled across an article about this, while searching the web in a desperate bid to discover why I couldn’t develop strong connections with men.
Now, after learning how to activate this primal attraction trigger consistently, my relationships with men have never been more loving and affectionate.
You can learn more about my journey discovering the power of the ‘Hero’s Instinct’ in my deeply personal blog post. This will teach you why it’s so powerful and how you can activate within the men you’re chasing.
At this moment in time, it would appear as if only a small percentage of the female population are aware of this psychological ‘cheat code’. That means this is your chance to stand out from the competition.
Of course, it may be that this guy is already falling for you. To find out, scroll down for my list of body language hints of a smitten man.

Body Language Of Men In Love
Some people may find it difficult to express in words how they feel about someone, they may be a really reserved person who is not very good at expressing their feelings. Other people may not reveal how they feel until they know first exactly how the other person is feeling. This can make it hard to know where you stand early on in a relationship with someone.
If you have just started dating someone that is very hard to read, you may be looking for signs that he is attracted to you as some people are hard to read. If you are reluctant to have that deep conversation with him just yet, look to his body language for signals as to how he feels about you. This will help you find out what he is thinking without having to ask him.
Here are the signs of men in love.
1. His Body Is Relaxed Around You
If he breathes slowly and in a relaxed manner when he is around you, this is a good sign that he feels comfortable around you. If his body and breathing is relaxed when you are around it shows that he is able to relax with you and be completely himself. This is a sign that he is already comfortable around you and probably likes you.
2. His Hands Sweat When He Is Near You
If you notice that his hands get a bit clammy when you are with him, this is a sign that he is nervous around you. If you are walking around town with him and his hands get a bit sweaty then he may be nervous because he is trying to impress you because he likes you and doesn’t want to mess anything up with you.
3. He “Accidentally” Touches You
If his hand accidentally touches yours as you are walking or sitting next to each other, or his leg accidentally grazes yours while you are having dinner, it is a sign that he likes you. Such contact means that he wants to be physically near you, if he tried to touch you, this is an indicator that he is really into you and may even be in love with you.
4. He Messes With His Shirt Collar
If he is constantly messing with his shirt collar or his tie when he is around you, this is another sign that he is nervous because he likes you. People often touch their necks when they are nervous as a means to calm themselves. That he is playing with his collar often means that he is really into you and he is nervous about it.
5. He Messes Up His Words
If he always messes up his words and stumbles over sentences when he is with you then this is a sign that he is trying to impress you. If he is usually a really confident guy that never really seems awkward, this is a sure sign that he is into you. He likely doesn’t want to mess anything up by saying the wrong thing to you.
6. His Face Goes Red
When you are talking to him and his face goes red, even though it is not really warm inside, this is likely because he is into you and this is making him nervous and stressed. When someone is anxious and stressed the adrenaline can cause your face to go red. So if he is blushing when he is near you, it may be a sign that he really likes you.
7. He Stands Close To You
If you are waiting in line at a cafe, you are waiting for the tram or he is saying goodbye to you and he stands as close as he can to you, this is a sign that he is really into you. That he always tries to be as close to you as possible, and can’t resist the urge to be physically near you may mean that he is in love with you.
He is not scared of being physically close to you and he is trying to show you how he feels about you. He wants to be near to you because he is really into you.
8. His Pupils Dilate When He Is With You
If you are not in a really dark place and his pupils dilate, this is a sign that he is really into you. That his pupils are dilating is a physical response that happens when he is attracted to someone or something that he likes. Notice his eyes when he is near you to find out his true feelings for you and to determine whether he is into you or not.
9. He Reveals His Teeth When He Smiles At You
Notice, when he is smiling at you, whether he reveals his front teeth. Guys don’t usually smile in this way unless they are really happy about something. If he is just flirting with you but is not yet sure about you, he is not likely going to smile at you in this way. However, if he is really into you he may smile at you like this.
If he is really happy, he may not be able to hide it, so notice whether he smiles with his teeth when you are near him.
10. He Smiles With His Eyes
If you really make him happy and he really likes you then you may notice that his smile extends beyond his mouth and is even visible in his eyes. If his smiles take over his whole face then this is a sure indicator that he really likes you and may even be in love with you. This is one of the positive body language signals in men.
If he makes eye contact with you in this way he probably likes you. Notice whether he makes an effort to make eye contact with you when you are talking. If he does, this is an indication that he is really into you. If he really listens to what you are saying and makes eye contact with you when you are talking this is the positive body language of men.
11. He’s Happy To See You
When you haven’t seen each other for a while, notice how he acts the moments he meets you. Notice whether he gives you a hug or a kiss or gives you a meaningful look. These are all signs that he really likes you and he is happy to see you. If he hasn’t seen you in a while, he won’t meet you without doing this if he really loves you.
12. He Leans Towards You When You’re Talking To Him
If you are in a loud restaurant or bar then this may not mean much as leaning toward you might be the only way that he can hear you. But, if he leans toward you if he can hear you well, it means that he is doing it because he is really interested in what you are saying. This is one of the signs that he is really interested in and attracted to you.
13. He Breathes Deeply As Soon As He Sees You
If you notice him taking a deep breath every time as soon as you walk into a room, this is a body language signal that he likes you. He might breathe deeply unknowingly when he sees you, to raise his chest and pull his tummy in. He might be subconsciously trying to make his chest and upper body look bigger and his stomach smaller.
If you see him doing this as soon as he sees you, it might indicate that he is trying to make himself look fitter and more attractive to you. He is trying to make himself more handsome because he likes you and he wants you to like him back. This is attraction body language and is a sure signal that he is into you.
14. He Brushes Your Knee
If he brushed your knee or places that strand of hair behind your ear, he is likely trying to initiate physical contact while pretending it is another reason. If he is too shy to make physical contact with you obviously he might be using other things as a guise and a reason for him to sneak a little touch with you.
He is likely trying to see how you will respond to his physical touch and to determine whether you are into him as well as to find out what you want him to do and where your limits are. This might also, in some cases, mean that he is only interested in the physical aspect of your relationship, so pay attention to whether he tries to develop an emotional connection too.
However, if he does really like you, he will probably take things really slowly and pull his hand away to indicate that he is happy to take time to get to know you better and to get closer to you. Notice this body language as it might indicate a man in love.
15. He Angles His Body Toward You
Notice how he is sitting or standing when he is near you. If his body language is open and his body is pointed toward you it might mean that he is interested in you and he is trying to attract you. He is putting himself in a vulnerable position and he is trying to let you in both physically and emotionally. It is a signal that he wants to get to know you more and he might be in love.
This type of body language indicates that he is interested, while if he angles his body away from you and his body language appears closed off to you it might show that he is not that interested in you. So ensure that you pay attention to other signs to ensure that you are not wasting your time with this man and he likes you back.
16. He Points His Feet Toward You
While it might seem like a small thing that doesn’t mean anything, the fact that he is pointing his feet toward you is a good signal if you want him to be interested in you. People’s feet unconsciously indicate whether they feel safe and comfortable or whether they want to get away from the current situation.
Thus, the placement of someone’s feet can tell a lot about their relationship and their feelings toward someone else. A person’s feet are controlled by their minds, unconsciously. So, if you are trying to tell how someone feels about you, look down at their feet and notice whether they are pointing toward you or away from you.
A person’s feet usually point toward where they want to go and what the heart desires, so if you are with a guy that seems interested, notice which way his feet are pointing.
17. He Crosses His Legs
While if he crosses his legs and turns the upper part of his body away from you it might be a bad signal, if he crosses his legs and turns his lower body toward you, it might mean that he is shy or nervous, but he likes you. This depends on different men and whether they are by nature shy or confident. So notice what type of person he is first.
18. He Moves Closer To You When You Are Talking
If you are talking to a guy, notice whether he steps closer to you or begins to step back. Obviously if he steps away from you, it is probably an indicator that he might not like you and is not interested in you. However, if he moves as close as possible, so that he can almost touch you when you are talking, he is trying to show you that he likes you, a lot.
If he likes you and is really into you, he will want to get as close to you as possible. So if he steps toward you while you are talking it is likely that he is very interested in you and he wants to get to know you better.
19. He Turns Away From You When He Is Talking
If he turns away from you when he is talking, you might immediately think that this man doesn’t like you very much. However, be careful not to jump to conclusions when you are looking at body language men as it can sometimes be somewhat misleading. This might show that he is trying to keep his options open and he is not in love with you right now.
However, don’t immediately jump to assume this, he might just not be a very good talker or he finds conversations with you nerve-wracking because he likes you. If he is making a lot of effort to talk to you and to find more about you, he probably does like you but is just too shy to hold eye contact with you just yet.
So, if he turns away from you when talking, don’t necessarily think that this is a bad signal, it might be his way of coping with his nerves around you. Notice the way that he talks to you as he might actually be really into you.
20. He Touches His Neck
If he is touching his neck and his throat area while he is talking to you, then this might be a man in love. Touching your neck and throat signifies sensitivity and connection. If he touches it as he is talking to you, he likes you and might be in love with you. He is trying to ensure that he makes a good impression.
If he touches his neck while he is talking to you, pay attention to the other aspects of a situation as this might be misleading sometimes as a person who touches their neck often might be dishonest. Ensure that you notice other things about him before you jump to any conclusions too soon and become mistaken about him.
21. He Squeezes Your Hand
When he holds hands with you, notice whether this man squeezes his palm with yours. This indicates that he wants to create a connection with you on an emotional and physical level. If he interlocks his fingers with yours while he is holding your hand, he might be trying to show you that he does really like you.
If this man arches his hand away from yours, he might be nervous or is trying to hold something from you and hasn’t yet told you everything that he has to tell.
Notice whether he makes an effort to touch you, if in a small way while you are talking. If this man brushes his hand along your forearm when you are talking he is trying to show that he is really into in you and desires to get to know you better. He wants to learn more and more about you and he is listening deeply to what you are saying.
22. He Always Tries To Make Sure He Is Near You
If this man is always way ahead of you when you are walking somewhere, he might be more into himself than he is in you. However, if he ensures that he is always by your side, especially if you are walking through a busy area, it is likely that he cares about you and is falling in love with you.
If you are sitting on the sofa, does he come and sit next to you or does he take the other one? If he always tries to sit next to you he is trying to show you what you mean to him. He might be in love with you if he always tries to squeeze next to you onto the sofa rather than choosing to sit on the other one.
23. He Messes With His Cutlery
If you are at a restaurant or sharing a meal at your apartment and you notice that this man is messing with his cutlery all of the time, this might show that he is into you and he is nervous around you because he is trying to impress you.
24. The Tone Of His Voice Alters When He Is With You
Notice whether the tone of his voice changes when he is with you or whether it is the same as when he talks to other people. If he talks softly to you he is letting you in by opening up and being vulnerable with you.
If a guy is in love with you it will be visible through his body language. If he is always trying to get as close to you as possible when you are waiting for your table at a restaurant, or while you are waiting for a taxi home then this is a sign that he is really into you and may even be in love with you.
If you want to know whether a man loves you, then pay attention to his body language when he is near you. If he is someone that is usually really confident and never really gets awkward, and he stumbles over his words when he is near you, it is likely because he is trying to impress you and he is nervous because he loves you.
If you want to know whether a man is secretly falling in love with you then pay attention to his actions and his body language when he is near you. If he is trying to find out every detail about your life and he likes to be as physically close to you as he can then he may be hiding his true feelings of love toward you.
When a man is falling in love he will ensure that this person his priority in life, he will always have time for the person that he is in love with. He will likely also reveal his feelings through his body language. Notice whether he seems nervous with you or whether his body and breathing is relaxed when you are near, these are both signs that he is really into you.
If a guy is confused about his feelings for you, even may even tell you so. If he has told you that he has recently come out of a bad breakup with someone, he may be reluctant to commit to you and so may be scared of his true feelings. This may make him confused about his feelings for you and what to do about them, especially if he is scared of getting hurt again.
