For you, all married men are off limits. But, although you have a clear attitude towards them, this doesn’t prevent them to behave inappropriately. Sometimes, you don’t know whether a man is really interested in you or he is just acting friendly and you are imagining things. This is why it’s crucial for you to know how to read between the lines, so you could act and set up your boundaries on time. So, if there is a married man whose behaviour has left you wondering, here are 9 signs he is definitely in love with you.
- Non- verbal signs
Non-verbal communication and body language are one of the first signs a married man is in love with you. A married man will probably not confess his love to you directly because he knows he is not available, but he’ll show that he’s attracted to you through other ways. If this man is into you, he will get extra nervous every time he is around you, he will look you deep in the eyes or will stare at you without any apparent reason and he will use every opportunity to touch you. This guy won’t be able to help himself but to smile and laugh at everything you say. Also, he may be shaking his leg or biting his nails when he sees you or talks to you. All of these are non-verbal signs he is in love with you.
- He initiates communication
When a guy is in love with you, he’ll use every possible opportunity he can to initiate any kind communication with you. The same is with all men, including the ones who are married. If this man always tries to have some small talk with you, he probably hopes to deepen the communication between the two of you in the future. One of the signs a married man is in love with you is that he’ll try to talk to you about his problems and things that are bothering him. He probably feels neglected in his marriage and is subconsciously looking for another female he could open up to. In the same time, he will probably be interested in you as a person and will want to get to you know you better, because he is in love with you.
- He uses every opportunity to be near you
One of the signs a married man is in love with you is that he’ll use every opportunity to be near you. This man knows he is married and he knows you know it, so he can’t ask you out on a date as if he were single. But, in the same time, he has the need to spend time with you. Therefore, he’ll literally make up situations in which you two have to spend time together, just so he can be near you. You need to be careful here, because it may happen that you fall in love with this guy if you spend too much time with him, even without being aware of it.
- He shows interest in your dating life
When a guy is interested in you, the first thing he will want to know is your relationship status. The same is with a married man who is in love with you. One of the most common signs a married man is in love with you is his jealousy. But, because he is married, he can’t show this jealousy straightforwardly. Therefore, he’ll probably try to find out whether you are single or not indirectly. This man will ask you about your boyfriend or dating life, despite the topic of your life should be out of his boundaries. If he acts like your friend, he’ll talk badly about your boyfriends and about every other guy that comes near you.
- He compliments you
One of the undeniable signs a married man is in love with you is the way he compliments you. This guy notices the new dress you bought, every time you get a haircut or when you’ve just changed the colour of your lipstick. In the beginning, these compliments are harmless, but with time, he will try to check your limits and boundaries and will become more and more open and direct with his compliments. You are probably feeling uncomfortable because deep down you know his compliments are not just friendly, but you are worried you’d be rude if you say anything, because maybe he’s just being polite.
- He wants to make you laugh
When a man is in love with a woman, it is important for him to make her laugh. The same way is with married men. Of course, there are some men that are humorous by nature, but if the two of you are with a group of people, but he only asks for you approval and awaits for your reactions when he tells a joke, this is one of the signs a married man is in love with you. This guy misses the feeling of seducing a woman, but he can’t do anything too direct, thanks to his marital status, so making you laugh is one of the ways to become more interested in you.
- He takes care of you
One of the signs a married man is in love with you is the way he takes care of you. When a man is in love with a woman, it is in his blood to have the urge to protect that woman. So, if he always supports you and has your back, it is, of course, possible that he is only being friendly, but if he goes an extra mile to protect you and to take care of you, it is probable that this man is in love with you.
- He complains about his marriage or doesn’t mention it all
When married men want something about you, they will either complain about their marriage all the time or they will never bring it up. The married man from the first group will present their marriage in the worst light because they want to imply that they are almost single, that their marriage is actually over and that is just a formality on a piece of paper. They want you to see them as completely emotionally available. In the other hand, if he doesn’t mention his marriage at all, he probably feels guilty for the way he is hitting on you or because he is in love with you and wants you both to forget about the fact that he is married. When he is with you, he lives a parallel life in which he is single and available for a new romance.
- Your intuition is telling you so
When someone is in love with you, you just feel it. The same way is with married men. You may be telling yourself that you are just exaggerating and that this guy is simply polite and friendly, but deep down- you know there is something more to it. If his compliments and behaviour don’t flatter you, but instead, make you feel uncomfortable, it means he has crossed your boundaries and it is perfectly ok for you to tell him this.
