12 subtle behaviors men display when they’re truly infatuated with a woman

Men can behave quite strangely around a woman they like. Often, it’s because they’re nervous, want to impress, lack experience, or have intense emotions for her. 

They feel this pressure to be impressive and cool, but sometimes, it backfires, making them stumble over their words or act a bit weird.

The anticipation of interacting with someone they’re attracted to can also trigger feelings of anxiety and self-doubt in them. 

But it’s not all bad. On the contrary, men almost always behave much better in these situations than they normally do with most other people.

So, let’s see what subtle behaviors men display when they’re truly infatuated with a woman. 

1) He’s your biggest fan

When a man is captivated by a woman, he defaults to being her biggest fan. He thinks she’s amazing, and he’s not shy about letting her know. 

That’s why he’ll shower you with compliments, not because he feels like he has to but because he genuinely believes all the nice things he says about you.

And that’s often one of the first telltale signs that a man likes you a lot. And let’s face it, we don’t get that much encouragement from most people in our lives, do we? 

2) He gets a bit jittery

Another clear sign a man is truly infatuated with you is that he gets uneasy around you

So, let’s say you think a guy likes you, but you’re not sure. Still, you notice that when he’s around you, he’s getting a little nervous or fidgety. 

You notice him squirming a bit, stumbling over his words, or maybe even blushing slightly. 

It’s a cute and endearing sign that he’s feeling excited and nervous because he’s so into you.

3) You’re his priority

And even when he’s swamped with work or other commitments, he still makes time for you. 

You’re not just an afterthought in his life but a priority. He’ll rearrange his schedule or drop what he’s doing just to spend time with you because being with you is so important to him.

You’ll notice that he’s consistently putting effort into your relationship: planning dates, checking in with you, or just being there to listen when you need to vent. 

It’s a reassuring feeling knowing that you’re always on his mind and that he’s willing to prioritize you no matter what.

4) He’s all about making you happy

He also goes out of his way to bring a smile to your face because your happiness means the world to him. 

Whether he surprises you with your favorite takeout or sends you cute memes to make you laugh, he’s constantly thinking of ways to put a smile on your face because seeing you happy makes him happy.

At this moment, this is his mission in life, and if you’re lucky, it might just stay that way forever. 

5) He’s like your reflection

Have you ever noticed that you and your crush seem to have similar mannerisms or habits? That’s because he’s subconsciously mirroring your behavior, which is a sign of deep connection. 

You’re on the same wavelength, and it’s a pretty cool feeling, right?

But what does it mean you behave similarly? It simply means he’s adopting similar body language or expressions as you, without even realizing it.

He starts using similar phrases or gestures as you, or maybe he adopts some of your habits. 

6) He initiates contact

You’ll also notice that he’s the one reaching out to you first. He’ll text, call, or DM you all the time. He wants to stay connected with you and doesn’t hesitate to make the first move.

Now, that may or may not be to your liking, depending on how private you are or how much you actually want to spend time with him. 

That’s why it’s best if you establish some ground rules as soon as possible because it might be too hard later on. 

7) He’s a gentleman

He goes out of his way to show you respect and courtesy, from holding the door open for you and pulling out your chair to offering you his jacket when it’s cold. He believes in treating you with kindness and consideration.

He believes in treating you this way because he values you and wants to make you feel special.

And that’s great because you see it less and less these days, don’t you? 

8) He pays attention to your reactions

A guy who likes you a lot will also carefully observe your body language to gauge your reactions to things. 

He wants to know what makes you happy, what makes you laugh, and what makes you tick.

For example, let’s say you’re watching a movie together, and he notices you laughing at a certain scene or tearing up during an emotional moment.

He’ll pick up on these cues and remember them for next time, maybe suggesting similar movies or avoiding ones that he knows won’t resonate with you.

9) He shares his interests with you

A man in love wants to share his passions with you and involve you in the things he loves. He values your opinion and enjoys experiencing new things together.

He’ll introduce you to his favorite hobbies, such as hiking or cooking, his taste in music or movies, or even something as niche as his collection of vintage comic books. He wants to share those things with you.

He’ll probably invite you to hike to his favorite spot or create a playlist of songs he thinks you’ll love.

10) He’s affectionate

Probably the best part about all of this is that he’s not afraid to show his affection for you through hugs, kisses, or sweet gestures. 

He wants you to feel loved and appreciated, and he’s not shy about expressing his feelings for you.

He’ll wrap you up in a warm hug, steal a quick kiss when you least expect it or hold your hand as you walk together because he wants you to feel cherished and valued.

11) He’s attentive to your needs in bed

This also needs to be said: Most infatuated men won’t be selfish in the bedroom. They’ll be focused on your pleasure and satisfaction, not just their own. 

That’s why your guy will take the time to learn what you like and don’t like, and he’s always eager to please you.

Maybe he tries out different techniques or positions to see what works best for you, or he asks for feedback to ensure that you’re enjoying yourself.

Above all, he wants to create an intimate connection that’s fulfilling and satisfying for both of you.

12) He makes sacrifices for you

And lastly, he’ll make sacrifices for you. From giving up his Saturday golf game to spend time with you to canceling plans with friends to take care of you when you’re sick, he’s willing to make sacrifices because you’re worth it to him.

He does these things because he genuinely cares about you and wants to show you how much you mean to him. 

His willingness to make sacrifices for you is a clear sign of his commitment and devotion, and it’s a beautiful expression of his love and affection for you.
