When you’re in the rush of dating someone or in a new relationship, it can be hard to think straight. Sometimes we read more than is there, or we over-think things because we want this to turn into something more.
Here are 7 signs he totally adores you — and it’s very hard to miss these! And if he adores you, hopefully, he’s a keeper too. So let’s jump in. He adores you if:
1. He shows you his goofy side.
This sounds like a strange one, I’ll admit it. But have you seen a man in love? He acts pretty goofy. He’ll have a lopsided grin and even act giddy around you.
He actually wants to do those “cute little things” that men usually hate, like rubbing noses together and sharing ice cream. When he adores you, it brings out his cute side, because he feels happy, in love, and open with you.
2. He can’t go a day without hearing from you.
The puppy love stage is so much fun. You’re both infatuated and want to see each other. In fact, he can’t stand going more than a day without talking to you. He’ll text you good morning or even call when you’re apart.
He’ll check in with you to see how your day is going. And he’ll especially check on you if he knows you’re dealing with something that day that’s hard or stressful. He might call out of the blue just to hear your voice.
3. He’ll throw caution to the wind.
I mean this in the best way possible: he won’t care what others think about him while he tries to win your heart. He might make big, bold public displays of affection, like standing up in a park and singing to you.
And he’ll be happy to make a fool of himself. He might make some big decisions and changes so he can see you more. He’ll also make you a priority above other things because he wants you to feel special.
4. He gives you the last one.
You’re sharing a bag of chips, and he looks down to realize there is one chip left. What happens next will tell you a lot. Does he grab it for himself? Does it offer it to you, hoping you won’t take it? Or does he pick up the last chip and feed it to you?
Not only will he want you to have the last of things, but he’ll also want to share things with you. In contrast, I once dated a man who was very sweet… for a while.
One day I spotted a bag of Cornnuts in his truck. It was one of our favorite shared snacks. I happily held up the bag and said, “Look what I found!” I fully expected him to share.
Instead, he asked me, rather grumpily, “And can you put them back?” That’s not how a man who adores you acts!
You’ll know he adores you because when you accidentally do something that could offend him, he’ll shrug it off. He’ll think you’re cute and adorable, and tell you so.
5. He’ll overlook the things that aren’t adorable.
If you’re like me, you’re worried about doing anything that comes off as gross or “not-so-cute” in front of your man. But life happens.
When a man adores you, he won’t be turned off when you do something embarrassing. It’ll seem like he doesn’t care about leg stubble or morning breath.
Truth be told, when a man is smitten, he might even find it cute when you do something you’d rather not let him see. When he adores you, it’s like you can’t do anything wrong.
6. He’ll want to hold you, hold your hand, cuddle, and gaze into your eyes.
When a man adores you, he shows it with actual adoration. He’ll smile ear to ear and tell people how lucky he is to have you in his life. The attraction is at a crazy-high level, and he wants to touch you as much as possible.
7. He thinks about you all the time and lets you know it.
He’ll text you about a new restaurant he just saw because he thinks you might like it. He’ll send your flowers or other surprises to work. He’ll send “miss you” and “thinking about you” texts.
He’ll do things that let you know he thinks about you during his day, like planning a romantic evening or buying you something he knows you’ll love. He might actually write a letter or card or send a long email. A man who adores you will let you know how he feels!
There you have it! If you’ve been wondering where you stand with your new boyfriend, I’ve just given you 7 signs he totally adores you. I hope you find them helpful! So, you know he adores you, and that probably means that you like him as much. But does that automatically mean he’s a keeper?
