When a married man compliments you for your qualities, looks, dress sense, professional life, etc. especially when you least expect it, then it means that he is interested in you and wants you to know that.

3. He tries to keep tabs on your love life
Your relationship status is perhaps his gravest concern, as since he is falling in love with you, he wants to find out whether you are available or not. If you already have someone in your life, then he will probably air negative opinions about that someone, because he will be jealous for sure. He will keep regular tabs on your love life in order to wait for the chance to express his love for you.
4. He either shares details about his married life or refrains from doing so
He either discusses details about his married life with you or does not even mention it at all to you. If he does the former, then it means that he is giving you an indication that he is not exactly happy in his married life and wants you to know that he is available for you. If he avoids sharing any details about his married life, then he is probably overwhelmed with guilt and wants to forget the fact that he is married so that he can be with you.
5. He goes out of his way to help you
The fact that the married man has fallen for you becomes apparent when he does all in his power to help you especially if you are facing a problem.

6. He tries to highlight the similarities between the two of you
He will keep hinting at the fact that you are the type of girl he likes and that you two have a lot of similarities, whereas his wife hardly has anything common with him. All these are just tactics to get hold of your attention and to create a lasting bond with you, because he has feelings for you and wishes to have a future with you. before you succumb, let us tell you that an affair with a married man can be quite a complicated, messy journey.
7. His body language is a huge indicator of his love
Instead of straightforwardly confessing his love for you, a married man will use his body language to express his love. Probably he will get nervous around you, will lean towards you while talking to you, make continuous eye contact with you, will smile at you as if you mean the world to him and will take every chance to touch you as well.
8. He takes out time especially for you
As a married man, his priority should be to give time to his wife and family. However, if he is taking out time especially for you during the weekends and even during the weekdays, then you definitely mean something to him. All the time he spends with you, he will try to keep you comfortable and happy.
9. He tries to stay in touch with you on a regular basis
Each and every day the married man will try to stay in touch with you either through text messages or calls.

He constantly tries to contact you because he wants to get to know you better and make his presence known in your life.
10. He gives top priority to your opinions
Your opinions and thoughts related to marriage, cheating, love and any other matter whatsoever mean a lot to him. So he will give top priority to your opinions and try to shape his opinions accordingly. Even if he is in some trouble, then he will turn towards you for suggestions. By giving enough value to your opinions, he is actually giving you an indication that he is interested in you.
11. He always behaves perfectly when he is around you
He portrays himself as the perfect gentlemen when he is around you. He tries to be charming, chivalrous and brighten up the atmosphere by making you laugh.

Even his interaction with other people is very cordial, because he wants to show his best side to you.
12. You have a strong gut feeling about his love
Deep down in your heart, you get the strong gut feeling that the married man is falling in love with you. You can keep fooling yourself by saying that he just cares for you because you are his friend, but the reality is that he likes you and you cannot keep denying it. However, if you do consider taking the plunge and dating him for all that is worth, do it safely and without getting hurt.
Why do married men fall for other women?
When married men are bogged down with immense responsibilities of a marriage and are unable to cope, it is then that they search for an escape route and end up falling in love with another woman. They might feel emotionally disconnected from their wives, because of which they look for emotional satisfaction elsewhere. It is usually when the wives fail to acknowledge the efforts of their husbands that the men become helpless when another woman shows them love and affection, while some men might just crave attention and just want to satisfy their insatiable lust by getting involved with a second woman.
If a married man is falling in love with you, then it is probably because of one of these reasons:
- You might have the qualities that his wife lacks
- You might be making him feel whole again
- You might have re-instilled his faith in love again
- You might have supported him during his critical times
Whatever the reasons, it is important that you know what you want in your love life and whether or not you seriously want to commit to a person who is married. So think about it carefully. Getting dumped by a married man could be a severe blow to your future and self-respect.
You don’t choose who you fall in love with – so reciprocate his feelings if you feel it worth to invest yourself in a relationship with a married man. But, if makes you uncomfortable and the whole idea of being in a relationship with a married man makes you cringe, then make it clear to him at the outset. Just because he is falling in love with you, it does not mean you have to oblige him in anyway if you are not interested. Taking a firm stand is essential in such tricky situations.
