Find yourself wondering, “Does she love me?” Knowing if a girl likes you and knowing if a girl is falling in love with you are two different things. Signs of interest can be easy to recognize in body language and eye contact, but spotting when a woman falls in love is harder to see. Not only is it rarer, but the signs she’s falling for you are, in many ways, even more, complex and subtle. So subtle that you could miss them even if she’s your best friend, especially if she’s already in a relationship. Think about the last time you fell in love with a girl—was it obvious? Or did you recognize it AFTER you had already been acting as if you were?
Understanding how she feels, particularly as your connection matures and deepens, is important for a healthy relationship. In this piece, we’ll explore the most significant signs she secretly wants you, and why they’re so important to spot.

Why You Need to Be Able to Tell if a Girl Is Falling In Love With You
There are two main reasons you need to recognize the signs she’s falling for you. First, if you think you might be falling in love with her, you want to know your feelings are reciprocated. Or at least what the future of the relationship might look like. On the other hand, if you’re just interested in dating her casually, it’s important to know if she’s developing feelings. Perhaps you want to break things off or slow them down. But at least you want to make sure you’re on the same page when it comes to your relationship.
Building a successful relationship requires understanding these hidden signs she’s falling for you and responding to them appropriately. And by appropriately, I mean stoically. If you get emotional or too affectionate, you rob her of the ability to be emotional and affectionate, and she will resent you for it.
You can either love women or understand them, so don’t let your own insecurities get in the way of a happy life with your dream girl.
The 3 Hidden Signs a Woman Is Falling in Love With You
A fascinating report covered by the BBC explores the three stages of love. Love is a complex phenomenon that differs from person to person so there is no hard and fast rule set. But people do share the same chemical mix so we can identify a handful of common signs she’s falling for you or she’s in love with you.
Women tend to fall in love slower than men. This is likely because they have to be cautious about who they have children with since it puts them in a vulnerable state for 9 months at a time. That’s a dangerous commitment to make to the wrong man, so it’s imperative the woman has ample time to spot any warning signs that a man is not up to the job before she allows herself to fall for him.
Breaking it down into phases can help us understand how love evolves in women’s brains.
The first phase is called lust. This is the testosterone-driven period when you can’t wait to tear each other’s clothes off.
The second is called attraction. This is when each of you is constantly thinking about the other. You’re both thinking, “Am I falling in love?”, and it is driven by dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine.
Finally, attachment develops. This is when you get through the anxiety of attraction and move into a settled form of being in love driven by oxytocin and vasopressin.
That third phase is where relationships become “serious.” That is when you want to know if you and your girl are on the same page. So how do you know that a girl is moving into that third, more specific and serious form of romance?
1. Her Focus Shifts Away from Other Men
In this age, it’s not uncommon for girls to date several men at once. She’s playing the field and playing the market to see what’s out there. When girls are in love (or they think they’re falling) they put the brakes on other relationships to focus on the one she cares about the most. Wanting to be with only you is one of the telltale signs she likes you romantically and believes her feelings for you represent a future together.
Why would she cut off other people she’s interested in if she didn’t think you were more valuable to her than the rest?
When she signals exclusivity to you, she thinks you’re worth investing all of her romantic time and effort into. That’s something people generally only do when they’re starting to fall in love.
2. She Initiates Joint Future Plans
Plans for the both of you can be big or small. Small plans include dates or even weekends away for the two of you. Larger plans include weekend trips, family events, and full vacations. More than the specific activity, however, it’s the assumption behind a plan that sends a signal. If she plans a date that’s six months away, for example, she clearly doesn’t expect the two of you to break up. She is being intentional about making you part of her personal life and wanting to spend time with you for the indefinite future. You generally find that kind of long-term commitment from people who are in love.
Then, of course, there are Big Plans. Talking about the two of you moving in together is probably the most obvious example. But it doesn’t have to be quite so extreme. She might, for instance, ask you questions about transferring her job at work. Would you go with her? Would you do the long-distance thing? She’s planning for herself, of course, but she’s including you in those plans. She’s imagining a life that involves you for the long haul, and considering your interests along the way. When someone starts planning their life around you, it’s usually because they’re in love.
3. The Significance Behind Her Gifts to You
Gifts speak volumes, especially when they’re given by a woman. When a woman loves you and gets you a gift, she put some thought into it as a signal of how much she cares. Ask yourself how much effort she might have put into making, finding, or buying the gift.
A meaningful gift doesn’t have to be (and often isn’t) very expensive. On the contrary, a meaningful gift is a good sign that lets you know that she gets you. It communicates her affection without regard for money. Maybe you mentioned a book that you want to read, and a few days later she surprises you with a copy. Or maybe you talked about a cartoon you liked as a kid, and she grabs you an old copy at a yard sale for your office.
The point here is what your mother used to say: It’s the thought that counts. If she’s giving you gifts that require thought or special attention to what you say, she’s communicating something meaningful.
Not-So-Hidden Signs a Woman Is Falling in Love With You
That’s it for the 3 hidden signs a woman is falling in love with you. If you’re still wondering, “Does my girlfriend love me?” or then these next few will give you your answer. Here are the clear signs a woman is falling in love with you.
1. She Adores Your Imperfections
Everyone has faults and quirks that can rub other people the wrong way. But love does a funny thing to people. It transforms those idiosyncrasies from something irritating into something endearing. This might be one of the clearest signs of love.
Telling you how “cute” your differences are isn’t just accepting and appreciating you for who you are. She’s telling you she gets you in a way that other people don’t, likely because she loves you.
2. How She Reacts to Mentioning Other Women
Women are jealous creatures when they start seeing their partner in a “long term” kind of way. If you’re a good looking, charming guy and your girl is showing signs of wanting more from you, she’ll mention other women to gauge your reaction. She wants to be the only woman in your eyes because it makes her feel comfortable about her position in your life.
If she mentions other women in a comparative way, it might be a sign of her trying to gauge your reaction and see if you have a genuine interest in her. If she starts to feel threatened by your friendships with other women, it could indicate her growing feelings for you and a desire for a more exclusive connection.
3. She Includes You in Her ‘Us’ and ‘We’ Statements
Listen for the collective pronoun “we” when your girl starts talking about you. With that small shift, she’s considering you as a unit, and it might be because she’s in love or at least has romantic feelings for you. You’re no longer just some guy she’s dating, even if the two of you are exclusive. You’re someone whose happiness she sees as inseparable from her own. This is a more subtle version of her starting to make plans for the two of you, but don’t be surprised if they come together. Language reflects emotion.
4. Her Openness in Expressing Her Feelings to You
This might belong under “obvious signs” but sometimes our own perceptual filters get in the way. It can be easy to hear a girl say that she loves you and still doubt that she’s “really” in love with you.
And that is fair.
Just because a girl tells you she loves you it doesn’t mean she’s in love with you. But if she chooses to drop this on you for the first time, she’s probably in love. Older women are more likely to take this approach because they’re comfortable being direct.
We don’t risk such large statements if there isn’t at least a kernel of truth to them. If she says the words, then she probably means it — or at least feels some very strong emotions that are creating the experience of love. So listen for and acknowledge the significance of those three words.
What to Do When She Is Showing the Signs a Woman Is Falling In Love With You
How many boxes did your girl check for all these signs? Did she just come out and say “…because I’m in love with you”? Once you realize that she’s in love with you, it’s time to act on that knowledge. You might just want to celebrate that you’re both feeling the same way. That’s one of the most exciting discoveries in a relationship. But what if her feelings are more serious than yours, or you’re just not feeling the same way? You might want to have a respectful and open conversation with her.
No one likes feeling rejected or out of step, so tread lightly, but be honest and straightforward. Something nice to tell a girl who feels much stronger about you than you do about her is, “I’m not there yet, but I’m honored that I bring out those feelings in you.” Be a gentleman about it and tell her in person while making eye contact with her.
And if you don’t see yourself falling for her, don’t lead her on in a romantic relationship. There’s no reason to let her keep going further down the path of love when you’re just not feeling it.

Warning Signs She’s a Player
In the realm of dating, spotting a player can save you a world of heartache. While players come in all forms, there are certain behaviors that suggest she might not be in it for the long haul but rather playing the field. Understanding these warning signs can help you steer clear of potential pitfalls and focus on more genuine connections.
1. She’s Mysteriously Unavailable… Until She Wants Something
Ever notice how she’s all over the place, hard to pin down for a simple date unless she suddenly needs a plus-one for an event or wants to show up somewhere with a date? If her availability seems directly tied to her needs or wants, raising your eyebrows is justified. A player often juggles multiple interests, making you one of the many options rather than the priority. This pattern of behavior is a red flag that she’s not as invested in building something real with you as she is in enjoying the perks of your attention.
2. Vague About Her Social Life
If she’s super secretive or vague about who she’s hanging out with or how she spends her free time away from you, it could be a sign she’s playing the field. A genuine interest in moving things forward usually comes with a certain level of openness about one’s life. When details are consistently fuzzy, and you find out about her nights out through the grapevine or social media breadcrumbs, it’s possible you’re dealing with a player. This lack of transparency is a tactic to keep her options open, leaving you guessing and on the hook.
3. Flirting with Others in Your Presence
A clear-cut sign of a player is if she openly flirts with others when you’re around. That could mean flirting or overt touching. This behavior is disrespectful and a calculated move to keep you on your toes and possibly incite jealousy. It’s her way of showing that she has other options and isn’t afraid to explore them, even if it means hurting your feelings in the process. This kind of blatant disregard for your emotions is a glaring warning that she doesn’t want to commit to one person.
She enjoys the game of keeping her options open.
Recognizing these warning signs early can save you from investing your time and emotions in someone who sees dating as a game rather than an opportunity to build a meaningful connection. Keep an eye out for these behaviors, and prioritize your well-being by seeking relationships with individuals who value honesty, transparency, and mutual respect.
Signs She Doesn’t Like You
Navigating the complex world of dating and relationships can be challenging, especially when trying to decipher mixed signals. It’s crucial to recognize when someone is not reciprocating your feelings, as it saves you both time and emotional energy. In this section, we explore some subtle yet telling signs that a woman may not be interested in a romantic relationship with you. Understanding these signs can help you gauge where you stand and make informed decisions about your pursuit.
1. Avoidance of Eye Contact and Physical Proximity
If she consistently avoids making eye contact and seems to maintain a physical distance from you, it might indicate a lack of interest. This behavior suggests she’s uncomfortable or disinterested in fostering a closer connection.
2. Limited Engagement in Conversations
When a woman is not interested, she often keeps conversations short and may not actively participate. She might respond with one-word answers, rarely initiate talks, or seem disengaged and distracted during your interactions.
3. No Effort to Reach Out or Make Plans
If she never initiates contact or seems unenthusiastic about making plans to meet, it’s a sign she might not be interested. An absence of effort in maintaining communication or spending time together is a clear indicator of disinterest.
Signs She Wants a Relationship
Understanding the subtle signs of a woman’s growing affection can be a nuanced journey. In the dance of modern dating, it’s often the little things that speak volumes about where a relationship is headed. If you’re wondering whether she’s just enjoying your company or considering a future together, pay attention to these telltale signs.
Below, we delve into three key indicators that suggest she’s falling for you and may be envisioning a long-term relationship.
1. Deep and Meaningful Conversations
She shows a keen interest in having long, meaningful conversations with you. This includes sharing personal stories, asking about your future plans, and expressing a genuine interest in your thoughts and feelings. Your job as a man, however, is to not fully engage in such conversations. Let her do most of the talking. Maintain some mystery about you or she’ll get bored.
2. Inclusivity in Her Life
She introduces you to her friends and family, invites you to personal events, and wants to be a part of your world too. This level of inclusivity often signifies that she’s serious about you and sees a potential future together.
3. Consistent and Thoughtful Communication
She regularly reaches out to you, responds promptly to your messages, and shows a genuine interest in your day-to-day life. This consistent and thoughtful communication is a strong sign that she’s invested in the relationship. Women will sleep with you without showing any interest in your life. Her willingness to sleep with you is not a sign that she wants to be in a relationship with you unless she’s also expressing curiosity about your life.
Signs She’s Using You
In relationships, mutual respect and support are key foundations. However, sometimes, it’s possible to miss subtle cues that suggest a partner may not be equally invested. Recognizing these signs early can help in understanding the dynamics of your relationship better. In this section, we explore potential indicators that a partner might be more focused on what they can gain from the relationship rather than contributing to a mutual bond. It’s important to remember that these signs are not definitive and can vary widely among individuals.
1. Frequent Requests for Favors or Gifts
If she often asks for favors, money, or expensive gifts without reciprocating or showing appreciation, it might indicate she’s more interested in what you can provide than in you as a person. This is why you must be cautious when you display obvious signs of wealth: expensive jewelry, fancy cars, designer clothing, etc. Men produce resources and women consume resources. It is in a woman’s nature to consume a man’s resources, so women feel no shame about using you for your resources if you’re not aware enough to recognize what she’s doing.
2. Lack of Emotional Support
She shows little interest in your personal life or emotional well-being. Her focus seems to be on her own needs and desires, and she may be emotionally unavailable or indifferent to your struggles. As mentioned above, women will use men for sex, and this is one clear indicator. If she’s willing to have sex with you without showing any interest in your life, do not slide her into the relationship material category or you will get hurt.
3. Absence During Tough Times
She’s noticeably absent or disinterested during your tough times, but present and attentive when things are going well or when she needs something. This pattern suggests she might be using you for her benefit rather than being interested in a balanced, supportive relationship. This is a crucial warning sign to pay attention to because if you marry someone, you will go through tough times. If you’re injured or laid off for a period of time, and your wife is suddenly distant or absent, infidelity will soon follow.
