So let"s take a peak at some not-so-obvious signs you"re mutually falling in love with your person.

Regardless of whether you’re ready lớn go all-in or you’re more of a skeptic and need to pause và reevaluate after this big realization, here are some signs you"re falling in love, per dating và relationship experts.
1. You want to start new traditions with them.
It"s likely you và your family already have your own, like, maybe you play football every Thanksgiving morning. Maybe you each mở cửa up one present on Christmas Eve. But licensed therapist Sasha Jackson, LCSW, says that when you start khổng lồ think about creating traditions with your thắm thiết interest, that"s a big sign you"re falling in love. "It shows you"re thinking about spending the future with them," she says.
2. You love how they smell.
Even when they like...kinda smell bad? "Pheromones play a huge role in attraction," says licensed clinical social worker Ashley Starwood. If you find yourself sniffing that shirt they left at your house or nuzzling into their neck (even if they haven"t showered or just went to the gym), chances are, your toàn thân is literally drawn lớn theirs.
3. You actually have fun no matter what.
You got a flat tire. You had to lớn walk a couple of miles because you couldn"t get an Uber. You drove around for an hour trying khổng lồ find a parking spot in downtown Austin on a Friday night before ditching your dinner plan và just going trang chủ and ordering pizza. Relationship therapist and host of E!’s Famously Single Darcy Sterling, PhD, says being "able to have fun when shit goes wrong," points to a deeper connection that could be the real deal.
4. You want lớn know their love language.
Love languages are so important when it comes to lớn lasting relationships because it helps you understand how your partner best gives and receives love (because we can"t all be fabulous gift-givers). Certified life coach and therapist KeVonya Webb-Riley says if you"re eager khổng lồ learn their love language, you might be feeling more than a crush because "even though you find joy in doing things for them, you want to vì chưng the things that they absolutely love."
5. You prioritize their needs.
Not like, at an expense lớn your own, of course. But in healthy, loving relationships, ensuring everyone"s needs are met is key to a strong bond. "When you’re starting khổng lồ fall for someone, you want them to lớn feel prioritized," says licensed LGBTQ+ marriage & family therapist Adrienne Michelle. If you find yourself getting them a glass of water when you come back from the kitchen or picking up that special, skin-sensitive soap they like for your shower, you prob think about them as more than just a hookup.
6. You look at them when they sleep.
In a dễ thương way, not in a Joe Goldberg, stalker-y way. Psychiatrist & wellness coach Era Dutta, MD, says this could be a sign you care about them more than the average crush. But how can you help it? They look so cozy và cuddly and happy & oh my God, you really might be in love.
7. You"re willing khổng lồ try new foods for them.
Bonus points if it"s a food you always thought was gross. Weird, right? But it"s true! "Sharing your interests with someone & trying something new is a sign of interest in the person on more than a physical level," says Starwood. "You may not be falling in love with sushi, but you"re most likely falling in love with them."
8. You encourage them.
Now, this doesn"t mean pressure, hound, or overly push them, so don"t get it twisted. But if you find yourself encouraging them based on vulnerable convos you had, you"re starting lớn care more than just casually. "When you both start to remind each other of the goals and desires for life, you can tell you"re falling big time," Michelle explains. Just make sure you"re encouraging in a way that"s not overbearing, because hi, not cool.
9. Và you value their opinion about future plans.
Maybe when things were casual, you wouldn"t consider them when making Big Plans, but now you not only want their advice, but their đầu vào as well. When you"re falling in love, "you find yourself asking what they think about going khổng lồ college, starting new jobs, or trying different things," notes Starwood. "Their opinion becomes important to you, và you begin khổng lồ value their thoughts."
10. You don"t think twice about inviting them over.
"Anything normal you would vày in your life, seems like something you would ask them if they want khổng lồ join you in," says Webb-Riley. Hell, you might even ask them what they"re making for dinner (or what they"d like, if you usually vì chưng the cooking) since you always see each other anyway. Even stranger: It"s super casual and you don"t overthink it because it"s just a thing! That happens! Almost every day!
11. You start to understand their flaws.
Everyone has flaws (even you, bb), and when you start khổng lồ come to terms with your partner"s less-than-desirable traits—like never putting their dishes in the gd sink—multiple experts say this means you"re starting khổng lồ fall hard. Of course, ignoring red flags is never good, but letting go of the fact that they"ll always slurp soup through their front teeth? That"s love, my friends.
12. You’re all like “Ex, who?”
Oh, you mean you haven"t thought about the ex recently who you, let me remind you, made a Finsta for in order to stalk guilt-free? Yup, this is good news, my friend. “If you"re no longer trolling your ex"s social truyền thông account, you"re engaged in making memories with your new love,” says psychiatrist & mental health consultant Rhonda Mattox, MD.
13. You"re craving the cuddles and not the sex.
Yup, cuddling = emotional feels. “When you’re just as excited khổng lồ cuddle in bed with them all night as you are to get hot and heavy with sex, that’s when you know you’re starting lớn fall into real love,” says dating và relationship expert Nicole Moore. “Laying on your partner"s chest fills you with this secure bliss that’s like the last part of your orgasm but extended through the whole cuddling session.”
14. You’re not counting the seconds until they text you back.
You know, in the early stages of a relationship, when everything is so new và fresh that you consider how long it took them lớn text you, in order lớn determine how long you should take lớn text them?

15. You make their bed in the morning.
You can’t even get yourself khổng lồ make your own damn bed, but for some reason, when you’re sleeping over at their place, you find yourself doing little daily tasks lượt thích this lớn make their life easier. Maybe acts of service are totally your thing.
16. You notice that literally everything reminds you of them.

17. You don’t feel the need khổng lồ ask them for their birth chart.
Sure, it’s super beneficial to know, but you’re not stressing about whether or not they’re a Scorpio (and to lớn be honest, you wouldn’t care if they were anyway).
18. When an ex does pop back into your life, you’re completely unfazed by it.
It just so happens that *every time* you find yourself moving on, your ex has a radar và wants khổng lồ hit you up again. But that’s okay: They did, and you’re completely uninterested.

Because you have just as much fun sitting together & doing nothing as you would riding a roller coaster together. Or something lượt thích that. You get it.
22. You talk about things you"ll bởi together in the future

And you actually like listening to lớn their long, rambly stories. Just hanging out and talking about anything is fun.
