Edited by Kathy McGraw, Doug Collins, Eng, vc and 1 other

You're getting serious with your girl, and you're pretty sure that you love her, but how does she feel about you? It's only natural to wonder that as a new relationship progresses. Luckily, there are some signs from your woman that let you know that her heart is yours.

Please remember that women are individuals and not every woman will respond in the same way, so while these signs are a good guide on how to know she loves you, not all of them may apply to your particular situation. With that caveat in mind, let's get started.

You Know She Loves You if:

  1. 1
    She's told her friends all about you
    .
    When a woman falls in love with a guy, she's keen to tell her friends all about him. She'll talk about your dates, mention things that she's learned about you, and basically, tell her friends that it's serious between you. You may notice a few of her friends sharing "knowing" glances between them when they see you as if they know something that you don't.

  2. 2
    She knows you, inside and out
    .
    She remembers your birthday and knows what subjects make you cringe and which you could spend hours discussing. She knows your quirks and foibles and cares about you in spite of them. She accepts you for who you are.

  3. 3
    She says those three little words
    .
    If she feels secure enough in the relationship, she'll come right out and confess her feelings for you. If she does, then please return the favor; it's a big scary step for anyone to take.

    She gives you gifts of things that she knows you'll enjoy, need, or find funny
    .
    For example, she may give you a book she came across that she knows you're dying to read, or a t-shirt with a funny slogan that she knows you'll appreciate. It's her way of showing that she's thinking of you.

  5. 5
    She takes care of you when you're sick
    .
    Her nurturing side comes to the fore when you're not feeling well. She takes you to the doctor, if needed, and makes sure you take your medicine. She wipes your brow with a cool cloth when you're feverish and rubs your back when you're throwing up. She makes you soup and keeps you company as you recuperate.

  6. 6
    She introduces you to her parents

  7. 7
    She talks about moving in together
    .
    Moving in together is a big step in a relationship. If she feels secure enough with you that she wants to share living space with you, it's like a huge neon sign telling you that she's really into you. It's also a way for her to test the waters with you to see if you're on the same footing about your situation.

    She celebrates little milestones in your relationship
    .
    Relationship milestones are very important to women. They represent markers of relationship progress, and many women like to commemorate them. For example, she might try to recreate your first date or the first time you spent the night together. Marking relationship milestones shows that she views her relationship with you as important and worth commemorating.

  9. 9
    She gets jealous of other women around you
    .
    You may be surprised to know that women know when other women are interested in their men. If your girlfriend notices another woman getting too close to you or whom she feels threatened by, she'll take steps to "protect" her relationship with you, such as wrapping her arm around your waist or other possessive gestures in the presence of the other woman. She's saying "he's mine. Back off."

  10. 10
    She wants to spend a lot of time together
    .
    When you love someone, you naturally want to spend a lot of time with them, and your girl is no exception. Especially in the beginning of a relationship, she'll turn down her friends' invitations in favor of doing something with you, even if it's just hanging around the house and watching Netflix. As the relationship progresses, she'll slowly start to spend time with her friends again, but you will always be her priority.

Tips and Tricks and Warnings

  • Be honest about your feelings. If you love your girlfriend, tell her so, and likewise tell her if you don't.
  • If she tries to isolate you from your friends and family, that's controlling behavior and is not love.
  • Respect your girlfriend and always treat her with love and dignity.
  • Don't try to always "fix" things when she complains about something. She may just need to vent.
