As the famous scientist Albert Einstein once said, “You can’t blame gravity for falling in love.”
So, what is it that actually makes a guy fall in love? A lot of women around the world are trying to figure out this age-old question.
According to relationship coach Bobbi Palmer, “A man falls in love when he feels like he could be a superhero with you in his life. When he feels accepted, appreciated, and understood, and knows he can make you happy…he will be yours. Oh…and throw in that he thinks you’re hot!”
Although Women and men have relatively the same sort of emotions, men will fall in love with women in their own special way.
Here are 6 reasons researchers believe why a man falls in love with someone,
THE WAY SHE MAKES HIM FEEL
When a guy is with a woman who makes him feels warm, happy, and full of love, it’s very easy for him to fall head over heels in love. When she makes him feel accepted and validated in his emotions, it’s exactly the kind of feeling that makes him feel ready to fall in love. Men like to feel accepted and loved the same way that women do.
SHE SAYS “YES” TO LIFE
Women who aren’t ready to explore new avenues in life aren’t the kinds of women that men fall in love with.
“Finding a person who fits into his life without huge disruptions is important. Men may like to ogle high-maintenance women, but they’re not the women they marry. A willingness to say, ‘Yes, I’ll try that’ whether it’s trying exotic food he likes, sports he plays, places he wants to go make a man fall hard,” says editor Cathleya Schroeckenstein.
SHE FILLS HIM WITH PURPOSE AND PASSION
When a man takes a liking to a woman, he becomes filled with passion, and the more passion he feels, the more love that he feels. When a woman feels purpose for life, men can envision living that life right alongside her which makes them fall in love.
ITS ALL ABOUT THE FULL PACKAGE
Men are often charmed by the entire woman. Her looks, her personality, her voice, her laughter – when men fall in love, they’re very first captivated by the entirety of the woman.
CEO of eHarmony Grant Langston says, “The answer doesn’t sound sexy, but a man falls in love when his feelings for a woman reach a critical mass. He spends time with her and he sees that she is kind, loving, affectionate, loyal, fun, sexy, and of a positive spirit in quantities that reach a certain weight. One day he thinks, ‘Wow, I love this woman.’ He may not know why, but his mind/heart has taken a look at her in an in-depth way.”
HE FEELS LIKE HE CAN KEEP HER HAPPY
Men and women want the same thing when it comes to love. When a man looks at a woman, he feels like he can bond with her. When two people bond, they can make one another.
WHEN SHE’S OPEN TO LOVE
Men don’t want to be with a woman who plays hard to get all the time. Researchers believe that men are more attracted to women who are open to them. Guys like women who are much more open to the idea of love. Women who know what they want in a partner and know who they are as a lover are the type of women that men fall in love with.
“The things that make a man fall in love really boil down to is a deep emotional connection. When you feel comfortable with being open and vulnerable with someone, you’re likely falling in love. Human beings as a whole need to feel connected to someone in order to let the walls down around them. We can only really feel anything, including love, when the walls are down,” says dating coach James Preece.
