In the early stages of a romance, it may be hard to truly understand what a guy thinks of you. Does he really like you back? Could this crush lead to something more? But as time goes on and those questions are answered, you start getting more familiar with each other. Somewhere along the way, you realize that he just might be totally crazy about you. But even then, you hesitate. How do you really know he's totally in love with you?
If he's smitten by these eight things you do, he's crazy in love:
1. How easily you laugh at his jokes
Any guy loves a girl who can laugh at his jokes. It's painfully awkward when any joke falls flat - but with you, he loves not only that you laugh when he tries to be funny, but the way you laugh. He loves how easily laughter comes to you, the way it sounds in his ears and how your laughs make you smile so beautifully. He'll love you just a little bit more if you can make him laugh in the same way!
Whenever you get excited about something, your excitement is contagious. He loves how he gets all fired up by the things you're excited about. He'll be right there alongside you as you set out on thrilling dreams and adventures. Sure enough, if he loves it just because you do, he's bound to be crazy about you.
Those deep, late-night conversations can really tell a lot about a person. When you express the true thoughts and feelings of your heart, he's there to listen. He adores that you're willing to open your soul to him and trust him to love you for who you truly are. Saying those types of feelings out loud is no easy feat, and he's head-over-heels that you're willing to share those things with him.
4. How kind, and motherly you are with children
Whether they're nieces and nephews, children of your closest friends or your own kids, the kind, loving way you interact with those children really stands out. He's smitten by how motherly you are with children and shows him he's in love with a strong woman (and a great mother or mother-to-be).
Having confidence in yourself isn't the easiest thing to have and it's not there all the time, but he adores how confident you are. He notices and really sees you for the great woman you are even when your confidence wavers a bit.
6. When you talk about the things you love
Be it Disney or world peace, whatever it is you love, he loves to listen to you talk about it because it makes you happy. He admires how passionate you are about life, education, and whatever else it is you love. Whenever you talk about those things he can't help but love them too.
Trust is fundamental in any relationship and he's so appreciative it's a priority for you, too. Showing that you trust him proves you share a strong and healthy relationship. It can make him feel like he's capable of climbing the highest mountain and overcoming any trial. He loves having you in his corner, knowing that you'll be there to cheer him on when things get hard. He'll be right there beside you to support you on in your dreams and endeavors as well.
It's the little surprises in life (and love) that make it all worthwhile. Those surprise hugs and kisses, or the sweet gifts and kind words exchanged mean more to him than the whole world. You always manage to keep him on his toes and he loves you for it - that kind of surprise keeps the spark alive in any relationship. And as long as you're keeping him guessing, there's always something exciting to look forward.
There are a million other things he loves about you, but it's these eight things that really prove he's crazy in love. Even if he loves just one of your little quirks, it's the only sign you need to know that your mister is completely smitten.
