So you have been on a couple of dates with some guy. You like this guy, but you want to know whether he feels the same for you? Similar to women, men can sometimes send mixed signals. At one point, he seems head over heels for you. And in the very next moment, he seems disengaged. Well, the best thing you can do is look at some of the signs he caught feelings.
Men are lovely and interesting beings. Their love and curiosity grow when they catch true feelings. And this is where things get interesting. Remember, men have a harder time keeping their feelings a secret.
The thing about men is they often find ways to show care, kindness, and affection. And if he has strong feelings, you will know it.
Why He Might Be Reluctant?
While men are often obvious when they catch real feelings, they might also be reluctant to show them to you. Yes, it can get frustrating having feelings for someone you are dating and not being sure if they are in love with you as well.
Not knowing whether he has feelings can be stressful. It might cause you sleepless nights. But there might be a reason for his reluctance. Why hasn’t he confessed his feelings yet? Here are a couple of reasons.
He might be inexperienced. Some men who haven’t dated for a while, or haven’t dated a lot, might now know what the next move is to make. He may look afraid and reserved, even though he has feelings for you.
The next reason has nothing to do with you. He has been hurt by a past relationship, and he is now afraid of rejection. Men feel vulnerable when it comes to loving someone and their love life. And if they have experienced a broken heart in the past, they are afraid of the future.
You might have met him at the wrong time. Even though sometimes you might have chemistry, timing is another important ingredient for a successful relationship. He might have just gone through a tough breakup. And he is not completely ready to get back in the dating game again.
Signs He Caught Feelings
With that in mind, now let’s take a look at some of the obvious signs he caught feelings. One of these might not be enough. But if you notice a couple of these signs in your man, you can be sure he has the hots for you.
Stares At You, But Then Glances Away
When a guy has feelings for you, he cannot take his eyes off you. He might stare at you for a while. But the moment you catch him staring, he will glance away. That is because he is afraid. But increased visual attention is a clear sign he has feelings for you.
Pay attention to the way he looks at you as well. When a man is in love, there is a different vibe in his eyes.

He Wants To Spend Time Together But Disappears Out Of The Blue
We talked before about how some men might not be completely sure they want to get in a relationship. Men often get afraid when things are getting closer in their love life. They can shower you with attention and affection, but right when they have to make that final step, they can back down.
