16 signs he has deep and genuine feelings for you (no bullsh*t!)

When a man comes to the realization that he is completely and utterly in love with you, it’s hard to hide the fact. His facial expressions, words, and thoughts will all tell you how he feels about you.

Here are 16 signs he might be deeply in love with you.

1) He is comfortable enough to be himself with you

Some men are afraid of making mistakes or showing their flaws to women since they don’t know how to be themselves.

They will keep everything within their walls, and never show the real them to you which makes it hard to really know who they are. But if he is comfortable enough with you, he will open up and be himself with you.

His true colors are free to shine through. He doesn’t have to put up a façade or work on being charming for your benefit.

All of his masks are gone whenever he is with you.

He can be truly himself.

2) He doesn’t pull away from closeness

When men are in love, they don’t want to be too far away from the person they love. They feel the need to have physical contact with them.

You see, if your man has genuine feelings for you, he will constantly want to be around you, hold your hand, kiss you, or hug you. You know if it’s only possible, he won’t ever want to be physically apart from you.

He will be subtle with his feelings but very expressive to it – in the sense that he enjoys your closeness and if possible, would want to be by your side all the time.

Being close to the person he loves makes him feel happy and content.

3) He knows you better than anyone else

He’s not just attracted to your looks, he knows all your flaws as well. He knows how to make you laugh and smile, how to make you feel loved and valued.

You will be surprised at how he knows and remembers every little detail about you. He knows what you like, knows your past and present, and even your future (oh trust me, since he wants to be a big part of it).

Although he knows you already, he never wants to stop knowing you.

He is truly a match for you. I feel that he has known you since the very beginning of your relationship.

He will always have something to share with you although it doesn’t necessarily mean his personal information or secrets.

These are feelings he can’t find anywhere else.

A man who truly loves you will show you those things because they are a part of who he is as well.

4) He celebrates your accomplishments

If a man has deep feelings for you, it will be very evident when you accomplish something big in your life.

He is always so proud to hear about how you did something great or when you got a promotion at work. He will be so happy to hear that you are doing well.

But in actuality, he would also want to do everything possible to help make your life easier and more successful. He wants to help pave the path for you as long as it’s aligned with his own dreams and career as well.

Can you imagine how wonderful it feels to have someone truly in love with you?

Whenever he sees that you’re succeeding on your own, he is proud of you. You deserve the spotlight and he will always be in the background supporting you.

5) He’s there when things are difficult

When you need someone to listen to your problems and give you advice, he will be there for you. When you’re running in circles and can’t figure out what’s on your mind, and when you feel like all of this is too heavy for you to handle, he will be there – by your side ready to support and comfort you.

He will hold your hand and let you cry over whatever happened. He wants to make the pain that’s inside of you go away because it hurts him as well.

Just because there are things that are difficult or hard doesn’t mean that he can’t be there for you when you need him most.

His feelings are real for you that he will go to the ends of the world just to make you feel better and happy.

He truly cares for you. And nothing feels better than knowing that you can count on him when things get tough.

6) He is loyal and trustworthy

It’s different when someone has deep feelings for you.

This is evident in how his loyalty to you grows deeper the more time he spends with you or whenever he sees how much he’s getting emotionally attached to you.

I know for sure that loyalty and trust are two things that always come to the surface when love shows up.

He will never want you to be by other men or cheat on you. He will be very careful about what he says and promises.

He would always want to make sure that your relationship is secure and that he can’t just mess it up because he was too nervous or scared of how you might react if something were to go wrong. He won’t do anything that might hurt your feelings or make you feel bad about yourself.

And the sweetest part? He will do anything and everything to make sure you’re safe and secure.

He doesn’t have to be blunt or make you feel that he’s not the best guy for you just because he knows how much you’ve been hurt in the past.

He knows that it wouldn’t make sense for him to betray or hurt you. He relishes the thought of being with you – and doesn’t want to mess it up.

7) He will turn to you for comfort, advice, or support

This man can see you as an equal, and there goes without saying that he will easily turn to you for support when he is down or in need of help. He won’t be afraid to reveal how he truly feels about certain situations and ask for your advice on what to do next.

It’s like you’re his confidant – which means he trusts you enough to speak and be open about whatever is going on in his life.

It’s a great sign if he does this because it means he has full trust in you and that you have earned his respect.

You can see that he’s not the type of guy who will give advice without being asked. He values your opinion and genuinely cares for you, so when he asks your advice, he means it and wants to hear what you have to say.

8) He would do anything to protect you

Being protective is way different from being possessive – possessiveness is to be controlling and jealous.

Protection comes from a place of love and care.

It’s totally normal if you have guy friends, and he doesn’t get jealous of them. He trusts you completely and knows that you’re not the type to have an affair.

But, if someone hurts you or says something bad to you, he will do anything to protect you and keep you safe. He will be ready to stand up for you and defend your happy life together.

He will protect you as he wants to keep you safe from harm. He doesn’t want anything bad to happen to you so he will do whatever he can to take it away from hurting you.

A man who has genuine feelings for you wants nothing but the best for both of you – nothing less than that.

9) He really wants to have a deep relationship with you

He’s not just in love with you, he likes the idea of being a deep part of your life.

I guess some guys aren’t as into being a part of someone’s life as much as they would like to be, but if I were to take a guess based on his actions and behavior, he’s someone who would rather be there for you than anywhere else.

He has been there for you during a tough time or in a time of need. He would make it his priority to make sure that you are on the right track in life.

He has proven to be so loyal and trustworthy to you, and he will always have your back.

It’s about time to prove to you that he genuinely wants to be your partner – not just in a physical sense but more of a partner who can share everything about himself with you, who can be there for you when you’re down without any hesitation.

To have a deep relationship with you, he will have to succeed in knowing you inside and out and he will have to be there for you in the long run.

10) The talks are small, but often deep

Just because the conversations are shallow doesn’t mean that your relationship is shallow. If it were, this would be a different story.

This man wants to be more than just a friend to you, and he hopes that he can grow closer to you over time. He wants to get to know the real you, but he’s not going to push himself on you even though he really likes being with you.

You might also be surprised to find out that he really does care about you and your life. You might feel like he’s a part of your family because of how often he shows up in your life.

He will talk to you about things that are happening in his life and ask for advice on some things that are happening to him. He wants you to help him get through whatever challenges or problems or issues he is having.

At the same time, he also wants to know how was your day to know what’s going on in your life. He wants to know how his presence and time with you are affecting you.

He cares. He truly cares about you – and it shows.

11) He likes to be alone and alone with you

If you’re not the kind of person who’s into spending a lot of time with people and even consider yourself a “loner,” I seriously doubt that you’re going to have any problem falling in love with this man.

The reason why is because he doesn’t mind spending more time on his own just as much as he likes spending more time with you. It’s never an issue for him that it would be boring being alone or making too much time to only think about himself.

This is where I’m going to assume that he doesn’t have a lot of friends – but that’s not necessarily bad.

Having “too many” friends means that you’re very social and like to be in a group setting as much as possible. If you’re someone who likes spending more time alone than with people, then this man might be too much for you.

Being alone in this case is not a bad thing at all. This man likes to be alone and be with you more than being with lots of people. He just wants to have time with you and doesn’t mind being away from other people as long as he’s going to spend it with you.

12) He’s always thinking of you

It’s no secret that men are very visual creatures. They are constantly visualizing things and imagining situations, so seeing something all of the time isn’t a problem.

If this man doesn’t have the habit of thinking about you all of the time, it just means that he doesn’t care enough to get to know you more – or perhaps is just afraid of getting too involved.

But this man is completely different because he gets to know you on a deeper level and thinks about you all the time.

He’ll always want to see that smile on your face. Even when he’s sitting there in his room thinking about the ways to make you happy and smiling, he can’t help but smile himself.

He has a lot of reasons to be smiling or at least be happy – and one of those reasons is that he has you in his life. More importantly, he knows that you and he are going to be in each other’s lives for a long time and will be there for each other no matter what.

I know it’s far-fetched to assume that a man wants to imagine his life with you as many times as he can, but it really is happening all of the time. He cares about you, and this is just part of his care and concern for you.

13) His friends know you

This might be one of the most obvious signs, and it’s what you should be looking for if you want to know whether he really likes you. If he really wants to be with you as much as possible, most likely that his friends will know about your relationship.

If he’s spending time with his friends and talking about things that are going on in his life, he’ll definitely talk about what’s going on in his love life. He will tell them how he feels about you or how well things are going with you. He’ll spend time with his friends and not worry about you being around or spending time with them.

If you’re wondering whether he really likes you or not, then take time to see how he spends his free time with his friends.

It’s your prerogative to find out whether this man really likes you or not. You should keep your eyes open and see what happens when people are around him and when they’re not around him.

14) He gives you compliments

Here’s a romantic gesture: he’s complimenting you.

If you’re wondering whether he really likes you and wants to have a relationship with you, pay attention to what he says.

If you mention your appearance and how great you look today or how pretty are your eyes, and he tells you that they’re the most beautiful in the world or that they’re so mesmerizing, he really likes what he sees. He’s not just saying it to be nice but because he really means it.

There are two things that he’s telling you:

First: He really cares about you and your appearance. He’s not just saying that because he wants to make you feel good, but because he really does.

Second: He really likes what he sees. He’s probably not the kind of guy who just compliments any random woman; it’s rare to find someone who does that.

But if he does, it just means that he appreciates you for your beauty and wants to tell you about what he sees even though he doesn’t have to.

He’s going out of his way because he likes knowing that you’re the most beautiful woman in the world in his eyes. He’ll probably even notice little things about you if it makes him think that you’re a more exceptional person than anyone else around him.

Go through your conversations and see if he’s been talking about how beautiful you are in certain situations or how impressed he is with the things that he sees when you’re together.

15) He wants to buy you things

If he’s overly sweet and charming, you should be very suspicious about him. The reason why is because it’s a sure sign that he wants to get into your pants (and perhaps other private areas) as quickly as possible. He’ll be giving you compliments and trying to win over your heart because he has something to gain by it – usually sex.

But there’s another kind of man in this world: the one who really likes you and cares about you. This kind of a man would want to get to know you better and get closer to you, so he’d want to give you gifts.

But even if he doesn’t buy you things, he’ll show you through other ways what he would do for you if you were a couple. This can include various ways of saying romantic things or even doing things that are completely out of his way.

But if he’s willing to buy you lots of things and willing to spoil you, there’s a good chance that he really has deep feelings for you.

That’s why if you’re wondering whether or not this man likes you, keep an eye on what happens when the two of you are out together.

16) He’s not afraid to tell you how he feels about you

It’s a clear sign that his feelings for you are real if he’s not afraid to tell you.

He would rather risk getting hurt by telling you what he feels about being with someone like you versus hiding it from your face and continuing on with his life pretending that it doesn’t exist.

Admitting that he loves someone can be hard because many times men don’t want to seem weak in front of a woman.

If he were to come out and tell you that he really likes being with you, it clearly shows that he’s confident in himself and his actions. After all, he knows that you’re going to be there for him no matter what.

He will be a gentleman upon the first date, but in the end, he won’t be afraid to share his feelings with you. These are things that don’t have to come out immediately, but they will if they’re real.

If this man really has genuine feelings for you, he will confess them. Once he does it, you can be sure that he really likes you and wants to be with you for the long haul.

Final words

If you’re wondering whether this man really likes you, take some time to talk with him.

It’s totally fine if he doesn’t say it straight out and tells you that he doesn’t have feelings for you, because there are a lot of things that could be holding him back from saying those words.

But if he doesn’t do that, no worries, there are plenty of other ways to know for sure whether or not he does like you romantically.

It may take a little bit of time for you to figure out whether or not his feelings for you are real, but when you do, you’ll be super happy that you did it. You’ll see that someone who really cares about you will be there for a long time and won’t disappear on your doorstep after one night together.

If he’s your type of man, then I wish the two of you all the best.
