Falling in love is probably one of the few things in the world that can be both amazingly beautiful and absolutely terrifying at the same time. It’s something that’s different for everyone.
We all have our individual and unique personalities and we carry all of these into our relationships as well. There are some of us who like to express our love and affection through our actions.
There are some of us who will use our words whenever we want to convey how we’re feeling. But regardless of how a person would want to express their love, there are definitely a few things that you will notice about your partner if they’re falling in love with you.
And these subtle signs might be all the indication that you need to know that you have completely captured your partner’s heart.
Now, it’s important to note that just because you notice some of these signs in your partner doesn’t mean that you have to be in love with them at the same time.
You shouldn’t put that kind of pressure on yourself. You should always be willing to go at your own pace. We all fall in love in our own time.
This is a sentiment that is shared by Dr. Benjamin Ritter, the founder of Live for Yourself Consulting. “Emotions are on their own timeline,” said Dr. Ritter. He goes on to say, “They’re individually based. So, someone may start to fall in love way before someone else does. If you both have made a commitment to the relationship, that doesn’t matter as much because you both then can grow at your own pace.”
So always stay vigilant in your relationship. You always want to be staying on top of things so that you are getting a better read of things. Here are 6 signs that your partner is really falling for you.
1. They make an effort to make you feel safe and secure.
You have a sense of security and safety just because the two of you are together. Somehow, your partner doesn’t bring out your insecurities and anxieties anymore.
You just know that the two of you are going to be alright. They always do their part to ease your mind and calm your heart.
2. They always try to make plans with you.
They are constantly trying to make plans with you. This is a sign that they see you as someone who is more than just a fling or hookup.
This means that they really see a future with you and they want to be able to plan for it. They want to make sure that they don’t miss out on an opportunity to have a long-term relationship with you.
3. They make it a point to really listen to you.
You never have to feel like you have to watch what you say with them. Regardless of what’s on your mind, They are always going to make you feel like you can tell them about it. They always listen to you even when no one else does.
4. They make you feel involved and included in their life.
They never want you to feel like a mere spectator in their life. They always make it a point to include you in making decisions and in planning things out. They always involve you in the many details surrounding their individual life.
5. They fully invest themselves in your relationship.
And lastly, you can just tell that they’re all in with you. They’re really investing all of themselves into the relationship. They’re really giving you everything that they’ve got. This shows that they aren’t taking you for granted. This shows that they’re not just playing around.
If you notice that these signs actually apply to your partner but not to you, then that’s fine. That isn’t necessarily a cause for worry. You just have to take your time.
Don’t rush into anything because true love isn’t something that you can just force out of nothing. Based on the advice of dating coach Julia Bekker, it’s much better to always stay honest with yourself and with your partner. “If you care about the person but aren’t ready to take it to that full-blown level, I suggest telling them you care a lot about them but need to take things a little slower,” says Bekker.
“That will give you the time you need to see if you can get on the same page with them and if you want to progress with the relationship. If it’s love, you’ll know. Sometimes it takes longer to get there but you’ll know if/when you’re there.”
Keep in mind that we all really just fall in love at our own individual pace. And just because your partner feels a certain way about you first doesn’t mean that you won’t eventually arrive at that same place yourself.
