Signs He is Falling For You

My friend Jamie talked to me the other day and asked me a great question, “What are some signs he is falling for you? Like if I wanted to know if he’s feeling something special, what should I do?” Great question, Jamie!

All of us have had crushes at least once in our lives. So it is easy to understand that talking to your crush is not the easiest thing in the world. You get butterflies in your stomach; you get a little shy and even develop anxiety when they are around.

But once you make the first move and you are at the talking phase or starting to get to know each other, you are finally at a place where you get to uncover many things about the person you have been interested in for the longest time.

However, there have been many instances where the other person had no idea what was happening during that phase because you didn’t directly tell them your feelings. But we all know being upfront about your feelings is difficult, especially for someone you crush.

The first few weeks when you start falling for someone are the best. You feel excited to see them and giddy every time you spend time with them. The almost childlike innocence that comes with the early stages of relationships makes them so magical. However, instead of rushing into things, it is always better to take things slow and enjoy the process.

Embrace all the good and the bad that comes with the relationship and take things steady while also enjoying the process with your partner.
