It’s great to be in love, isn’t it? But sometimes, it’s difficult to know someone’s true feelings. It may be that you just have a crush on a girl from afar. Or maybe you’ve been dating someone for quite a while, but you can’t read whether she feels the same way.
Girls can be mysterious creatures, and sometimes, it can be downright impossible to decipher the signs that tell you that she loves you. While there are plenty of tricks and tips for the ladies about how to find out whether a guy is interested in them, more often than not, guys can feel equally confused.
Love is a strange thing and can make us act in all sorts of odd ways. You would think that learning the signs that she loves you would be easy. Surely, you’d know, right? But sometimes, you need a little helping hand.
Luckily, there are ways to find out!
Telling someone you love them is a big step, and it is fair to say that many men take saying the big “L” word pretty seriously. Men want to feel loved the same way women do and are just as afraid to get hurt, too.
The last thing you want is to get rejected or to have your *actually pretty fragile* heart crushed if the girl of your dreams doesn’t say it back. Or worse, freaks out and dumps you, or responds with the soul-destroying refrain, “I think we should just be friends.”
So, if you are one smitten kitten and want to know if your lady feels the same, here are all the signs that will help you understand if she has fallen for you, too. [Try: How to find out if a girl likes you in 12 ways]

It’s important to pay attention to her eyes, her mouth, and the way her forehead creases if she’s surprised or anxious or contemplating something. Her different expressions will tell you all you need to know.
If she stares into your eyes when you talk to her, and if she nods and smiles along, it proves that you’ve got her undivided attention.

If she showers you with praise and is quickly becoming your biggest fan, it’s likely because she’s trying to tell you that she likes you.
Women pay compliments to show that they’re serious about a guy. So if she starts giving you lots, it’s her way of saying that she’s into you.
This doesn’t mean that she jumps into bed with you every time she sees you. But she may give you hugs, nuzzle into your neck, hold your hand, or even simply brush her arm against yours every opportunity she gets.
If you make her feel loved and appreciated, she’ll want to be near you all the time. This is definitely one of the signs she loves you. [Read: How to flirt by touch without making it obvious at all]

In connection, if you need her to help you out with something or to just be there for you, she’ll come, no matter how short notice it may be.
If she’s rearranging her schedule and taking time out of her busy life to be with you, it’s because she wants this to be a long-term relationship that is going well!
Another dead giveaway sign that a girl loves you is if she shows you small yet meaningful gestures. Maybe she brings you soup when you’re feeling sick to make you feel better. [Read: 67 small but sweetest romantic gestures for everyday life]
Or maybe she calls for an impromptu date and makes your favorite dinner when you come over. Sweet little gestures like these show that she really cares about your well-being.
Showing an interest in your friends is definitely a sign of love. She takes an interest—not only in how they are doing but if all the little details you’ve told her still ring true.
Also, making an effort to get to know your friends shows that she wants to be a part of your life for the long term. She’s putting effort into getting to know them because she seeks approval from them. Trust us, many women don’t really do this unless she truly loves you!

By doing this, she is being thoughtful and caring and really listening to you and your friends. Making an effort to show you that she cares is her way of trying to impress you and let you know she loves you, too.

If she didn’t think you were great, she probably wouldn’t bother introducing you to everyone. So if you’re a familiar face to all her best gal pals, it’s because she likes you and wants the world to know about it.
She’ll never invite a man she’s not in love with to a family dinner or any important event. If she feels ready to introduce you to her family, then she is ready to say the big “L” word for sure.
If she texts you during the day just to see how you’re doing, it’s because she can’t stop thinking about you. Why? Because she’s seriously head over heels! [Read: 15 cell phone rules every couple has to follow to build trust]

So, you hang around with your buddies down at the pub, and the conversation moves on to the womenfolk in their lives.
No doubt, they will all have something to complain about. If you never feel the need to complain, it’s because your lady is totally into you and just wants to keep you happy.
No, we don’t mean literally! However, if your woman loves you, she will show you by supporting you in everything you do.

She is taking mental notes of everything you’ve ever said about yourself so she can remember every little detail. Whether it’s that you had an imaginary friend as a child or what your favorite beer is, she remembers it all. If she didn’t love you, she wouldn’t bother remembering all those things about you.
Of course, no one is perfect. But if she has rose-colored glasses on with you and puts you on a pedestal, then there’s a great chance she is in love with you. She will even tell you how perfect you are and give you endless compliments. This is a huge sign to watch out for.
It’s not easy for people to be 100% honest sometimes. That’s because there are always things that they have done in the past that they’re not particularly proud of.

Most girls like physical affection. They like to hold hands, cuddle, and spoon at night. Of course, she wants you to do that too.

She feels lucky to have you, so she wants to look her best. It’s much more important to her that you think she’s hot enough to lust after. So, she puts in extra effort to look good around you.
If she didn’t care so much, she wouldn’t bother getting all dolled up every time she sees you. [Read: 20 sexy ways to flirt with your girlfriend and make her feel desired]
You may or may not be the funniest guy in the world. But if you find that she laughs at everything you say when you’re trying to crack a joke or tease her, then you know she’s very smitten with you. Girls don’t laugh at dumb jokes unless they are really into a guy.
Research has found that when girls like or love a guy, their voice tends to get higher. They theorize that this is because it triggers the protective instincts in a man.
