When someone loves you, their world revolves around you. Their full attention is upon you. They will want to fetch the stars for you, spend time with you like there is no tomorrow, and bring out the best in you and themselves.

According to research, hormones like oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin are the reason that you feel a surge of positive emotions when you are attracted to someone and are in the presence of a loving partner. That’s why your happiness knows no bounds when you are around them. They make you feel as if you can conquer anything that life throws at you.

But how do you know someone loves you genuinely? How do you exactly recognize real love? We bring you all the signs someone is in love with you to add more clarity to your love life. Do not get caught up and swayed by strong feelings. Today, we will break down what it’s like when someone truly loves you.

18 Surefire Signs Someone Loves You With All Their Heart 

If you are wondering whether the person you are seeing loves you or is just faking it, you have come to the right place. A lot of times because of the commonness of casual relationships and hookups, love can feel like a fleeting emotion. And sometimes it can be very hard to tell if someone actually loves you or is just enjoying your company.

In the early stages of a relationship, you might enjoy everything with them, from the physical affection to how you feel comfortable around them. But there is more to love than that. To make things clearer, we have listed below all the major signs someone loves you deeply.

1. Notice how they look at you 

To understand the signs of true love from boyfriend, pay attention to how this man looks at you. One of the first things that happens when you fall in love with someone is that you want to keep gazing at them. You want to notice how their lips twitch when they are listening to their favorite songs. You want to notice how their body language changes when they talk about the things they love. You just want to keep looking at them.

Eye contact attraction is very real when it comes to someone who loves you. The way someone’s eyes look at you when they love you will be completely different from the gaze of someone who doesn’t love you. Here are some of the things the former will do differently:

  • They will lock their eyes with you for a longer period of time
  • They will stare at you when you aren’t looking. And when you catch them staring at you, they won’t look away
  • Their eyes will smile when they look at you

2. Their body language is different around you 

Body language is yet another sign that will let you know about a person’s feelings and intentions. Even if their lips hesitate to confess their feelings, their body language will speak volumes. So think about whether they show these little things in the way they present themselves around you. If they do, there is a good chance they are madly in love with you:

  • They will give you longer hugs. According to a study, longer hugs were found to give people an immediate pleasure boost as compared to shorter ones lasting for a second
  • They will mirror you, and this is one of the surefire signs they are falling deeply in love
  • They will angle their body toward you
  • They will maintain eye contact 
  • They will constantly smile even when you aren’t talking to them
  • If they are a shy person, then they will act a little nervous and jittery around you

3. They will be protective of you if they love you

How to know if someone loves you secretly? They will be protective of you, but in healthy ways. There is a thin line between being protective and controlling. A person who is protective of you will hold your hand when you are trying to cross a busy road. However, a person who is controlling will become unreasonably angry when somebody else tries to touch you or talk to you. Genuine interest leads to them being protective. But if they are a narcissist, they will act controlling in the relationship.

Jenna, a 27-year-old tarot card reader from Manhattan, says, “I knew he was the one for me when I noticed how protective he got. He would advise me on what’s right and wrong but would never expect me to comply. He never once asked me to stop talking to one of my guy friends whom I used to date. He is so secure in our relationship and makes me feel the same. I’ve never felt love like this before and I’ve never been happier.”

4. Someone truly loves you if they compromise equally 

One of the signs someone loves you truly is when they compromise equally. It’s one of the most essential keys to a healthy and peaceful relationship. It’s one of the indirect ways your partner is showing you respect; people tend to do it as a way to make an effort in the relationship. So, how do you know someone loves you? When they won’t let you go out of your way to sacrifice yourself for the betterment of the relationship. These are some basic yet different ways you can compromise to keep each other happy:

  • Your desire will be as important as theirs. If you purchase movie tickets, then they will buy the popcorn you love
  • If you travel to the place you always wanted to visit, then let them select the hotel you both will be staying at
  • If you spent Thanksgiving with their family this year, the next year will be spent with yours

5. You feel safe with them

It may not be their overt expression of their love for you, but it lies in how you feel when you are around them. In each other’s company, you both feel secure and there is a feeling of emotional support. You feel good seeing them after a long day. That’s how a secure relationship feels.

A Reddit user writes, “For me, true love is always looking forward to getting home wherever he is. It’s that warm fuzzy feeling of feeling safe and warm and loved. It’s knowing that your partner is your best friend and you can’t wait to see and talk to them at the end of the day.”

What does it feel like to have someone love you truly? You feel safe with them. Both emotionally and physically. You feel relaxed around them. You don’t have to hide your insecurities and pretend to be perfect. You will put your guard down and be your authentic self. Feeling safe in a relationship means not being with someone who constantly criticizes you and puts you down. Emotional safety in a relationship is where your concerns will be heard and addressed.

6. They prioritize your needs

When someone is crazy about you in loving relationships, they will make you and your needs their priority. They will take quality time out of their schedule to spend with you. They will make sure you fit into their world as well as they fit into yours. Their individual needs will align, or compromise in a healthy way, with yours.

Some of the signs that show they prioritize your needs include:

  • They will check in with you to see if they are able to fulfill your emotional needs  
  • They’ll ask you if your sexual needs are being met
  • They will not treat you like a last resort

7. They care for you 

How to know if you are loved? Read between the lines of their daily behavior toward you. Signs of love can be powerful but also very subtle. It’s true when someone said that actions speak louder than words. So even if your partner does not write long, sappy letters to your email address in the middle of the workday (I mean, aww), they might be showing their concern for you in other ways.

One of the clear signs someone loves you deeply is when they care for you and are always there for you, almost like you are family member to them. They won’t just look after you when you are sick but they will also care for you when you are in good health. Here are some things that will prove they care for you:

  • Cooking for you 
  • Paying attention and practicing active listening and when you are talking to them
  • Helping you with chores
  • Asking how your day went
  • Showing up at your door when you are feeling low 
  • Trying to make you laugh when you are down
  • Not damaging your self-esteem and self-worth
  • Driving safely and responsibly when you are with them

8. Valuing your opinion is a huge sign of their affections

One of the good signs someone is in love with you is when they value your opinions, perspectives, and judgments as much as they value their own. They won’t make fun of your flawed judgment and they will make sure your perspective is seen and understood even if not implemented. This is primarily what constitutes good and open communication as well.

Dominic, a 32-year-old anthropologist from Boston, says about his love interest, “I have never felt love the way I feel it with my current partner. He values my opinions and has never tried to disregard them or made me feel invalidated. I am going to propose to him soon, I can see myself spending the rest of my life with this person! I’ll make sure I give him the same regard he has always given me.”

9. Unconscious love signals: Listening and showing interest

When someone has fallen head over heels in love with you, they will listen to you intently. A good listener won’t try to cut you off when you are speaking your heart out or try to influence you. You will feel content after sharing your woes with them, and your world will seem less burdened. They will accept you on your good and bad days. 

Even research backs this theory. It was found that attentive listening while the other partner expressed stress was significantly linked with better dyadic coping behaviors and higher relationship satisfaction. When a person displays less attentive listening when their partner is expressing their woes and worries, it resulted in a negative interaction between them.

10. They offer the last bite of a delicious meal 

Consider this one of those unconscious love signals that actually speak volumes about how someone feels. How to know if someone loves you secretly? They will offer you the last slice of pizza or the last bite of that heavenly chocolate cake. This is a little silly but trust me, this is one of the sweetest ways to show someone you love them. You can see it on their face that they love you when they let you have the last bite of a meal they were drooling over a second ago. 

A Reddit user‘s partner loves them like this: “Food is the way to just about anyone’s heart. Thus, it shows he’s always thinking of you and cares if he offers you the last bite. I know love is multifaceted and I’m not that shallow, but it just gives me all the feels when my SO offers me the last bite off his plate. Surely I’m not alone in this thinking.” 

11. They don’t use your vulnerabilities against you 

Every person has vulnerabilities and insecurities they fight with on a daily basis. When you share them with someone, it’s because you love this person enough to trust them with your vulnerabilities. When someone has fallen for you sincerely, they will never try to use those aspects to hurt you, or withhold affection from you because of it. You can even talk about your past relationships with them without them feeling insecure or upset.

They will help you embrace your weaknesses. Research supports this theory and says that people who self-disclose and become vulnerable with a romantic partner and perceive their partner’s response as supportive, tend to experience increased intimacy with their partner. That’s what makes a truly healthy relationship.

Monica, a close cousin of mine who recently underwent a divorce, suggests that love is “accepting each other and being able to become one in a sense. Your arguments are productive and you don’t yell, no abuse on any level. You obviously love each other and would do anything for one another. You trust one another without question and wouldn’t hurt each other willfully. You share everything, your past failures, present happenings, and future goals.”

12. When someone truly loves you, they support your dreams

When someone truly loves you, they don’t want to clip your wings. They way to watch you soar. A person who loves you will encourage you to chase your dreams. They know you have the potential to achieve your end goal. That’s just the way someone looks at you when they love you. Some more signs of a supportive partner include:

  • They understand your schedule and won’t force you to hang out with them
  • They celebrate your big and small accomplishments alike
  • They offer advice when required, and don’t expect you to follow it
  • They are your biggest cheerleader
  • Even in times of bad news, they remind you how wonderful you are

13. You can communicate with them freely without any hesitation 

Research has found that communication is the bedrock or the “heart” in supporting and promoting relationship satisfaction. When communication deteriorates, a couple enters into an inevitable decline.

What does it feel like to have someone love you? You will feel like you can talk your heart out without the fear of being judged. You can talk to them about the fight you had with your friend even when you were the one at fault. You can talk to them about your family situation if things have turned sour between you and your sibling. You know you are being heard and you won’t worry about the conversation leaving the room. Even when you two disagree, you don’t exactly fight about it but rather engage in a respectful debate. That’s a sign of love you cannot miss.

The more you talk to them, the more easygoing the relationship becomes. Furthermore, better communication in relationships helps two people understand each other. It strengthens their bond because it gives more clarity into one another’s thought process. When you communicate clearly and freely, there is less room for assumptions, conjectures, and misunderstandings. 

14. They show their love through their respect for you 

A study was conducted to find out how the presence or absence of respect affects intimate relationships. It was found that in relationships where respect was present, the results correlated with several love and sexual attitudes, relationship satisfaction, commitment, and self-disclosure, as hypothesized. 

A lack of respect in relationships will eventually create problems between partners. The way someone looks at you when they love you is with the utmost respect. It’s not just about talking to you with a gentle voice or opening the door for you. Respect can also look like these small details in romantic relationships:

  • They will show up on time and respect your time in other ways as well
  • They will respect your physical boundaries. If you don’t want to be touched, they will respect that and maintain a distance
  • They will be proud of you and won’t make you feel as if you are inferior to them just because you earn less than them. They will be proud of you no matter what
  • They will be honest with you
  • Your well-being matters the most to them
  • Being loyal is another sign of their love and respect

15. You overcome problems together 

Adversities are a part of life. When this person doesn’t leave your side at your lowest, it’s one of the clear signs they are serious about you and that they see a future with you. So if you really want to know if this person is worth it in the long run, notice how they react when things around you get tough. It’s easy to make things work during the good times but the real test of a relationship is when problems hit you.

For example, you just got fired from your job and you don’t know how you are going to get back on your feet. In this case, does your partner express anger or support you? A true partner who loves you will make sure you don’t lose hope. They will help you find a new job or whatever it is that your heart wants. They won’t dump you just because you are going through a financial crisis. In fact, they will be the first person you can fall back on.

16. Small signs someone truly loves you: They will try to take an interest in your interests

It’s a rare thing to be in a relationship with someone where your interests match. It’s great if you are with someone who likes the same things as you do. However, if you are in a relationship with someone who is your polar opposite, then you might have a tough time trying to find a common ground in which you can connect with your partner on a deeper level and collaborate.

How to know if he loves or lusts you? If he lusts you, then he will not go out of his way to make you happy and is only interested in being physically close to you. But when you love someone, you do everything you can to make your partner joyful. And that includes taking active interest in what they like as a person.

Some people end their relationships based on such incompatibility. On the other hand, some try to take an interest in your likes and are open to doing new things for you. If you like baking, then they will try to learn a thing or two about baking as well.

17. They fight to resolve

You will have conflicts because you are two different people with different personalities. However, you will know your partner is meant for you when they fight to resolve, not to win. A relationship coach will tell you something similar, the importance of fighting together on the same team against the problem, and not against each other. Some of the ‘fighting fair in a relationship‘ rules include:

  • When they are mad about you, they won’t say mean things just to hurt you when they are angry
  • They will make sure you both are on the same team and are fighting a problem
  • If you start to blame them, they will remind you that you are a team and you need to work this out together
  • One of the signs that someone is in love with you is that they won’t bully you during the conflict
  • They won’t stonewall you or give you the silent treatment after or instead of the conflict
  • They are willing to give you your personal space after a fight, when you need it

18. Your gut tells you they love you 

Intuition is one of the biggest tools that help you make the right decision. When your gut tells you that this person loves you sincerely, go with it because your gut works based on intuition, logic, and information available at your disposal. It’s one of the physical signs you experience when you suspect someone of having a romantic interest in you.

If you have enough evidence to suggest that this person loves you truly, then your instincts will let you know. Even your friends, loved ones, and other important people in your life will tell you that you’ve been looking and behaving differently — And you already know what the magical reason is.

Key Pointers

  • One of the signs someone loves you is when they give you all their attention when you’re speaking to them
  • Some other signs of true love include prioritizing each other’s needs, communicating openly, and overcoming relationship challenges and problems together
  • A person who truly loves you will make sure your opinions and feelings are heard and validated

When someone loves you deeply, there are certain things they won’t do to hurt you. They won’t dismiss you, they will try to be a part of your life, and they will introduce you to their friends and family. They will make you feel validated and never try to change you. They will acknowledge your differences and instead of mocking them, they will respect and accept you.
