12 Weird Thoughts Every Guy Has When He’s Serious About A Girl.
Guys may act all tough, giving off an air that nothing really gets to them. The reality is quite different though. Although their exterior may give off confidence and poise, in their hearts and minds, something else is going on.
Men also get butterflies in their tummies when they meet someone they really like, they have just trained themselves to play their cards right. There are self-doubts, anxiety, and stress over doing and saying the right things to get the women of their dreams to like them.
Reddit asked men what goes through their minds when they like someone. The answers are heartwarming and funny. It’s nice to know it’s not just women going through all the different emotions when they find that special someone. It's surprising to know #10 is something both men and women do without shame.
#1. He puts her on a pedestal and idolizes her like she is a goddess.
"In my more naive years I would kind of angelicize them. In my mind they would be the perfect person: completely flawless, little to no interaction with other guys (because I was possessive), and a kick-ass personality. I'd ignore red flags and completely invest in this idealized nonexistant person rather than tactfully dealing with an actual human being." -RmanRman
#2. He literally replays their encounter in his head and how he is going to woo her moving forward.
"This is less of a gendered thing and varies by individual. Personally, I just replay all the moments that stuck with me when I talked to her. The smiles in response to my comments, laughs, things she said about me, how she interacts with her friends. The biggest thing that occupies my thoughts is the prospect of being with her. How and when to ask her out. Whether she likes me as much as I think she does. What sort of dates to ask her out on. How excited and nervous I am at the thought of having a girlfriend." -Stevenson123

#3. He thinks she is the perfect woman and everything she does is just wonderful.
''She's so f***ing cute? How is she so cute? Look at the way her hair looks when she's reading and it hangs in front of her eyes. What does she look like at home? Does she sit around in cute pajamas and dance when nobody's looking? I want to bury my nose in her neck and never let go.'' Stuff like that for me usually." -Deandalecc
#4. He feels scared to be but in a position of being vulnerable and in love.
"Please no, not this again..." -randomguy21390
#5. He gets way ahead of himself by imagining what the future looks like together.
"I essentially imagine montage of our entire relationship playing out: Meeting her parents, moving in together, moving to a new apartment, holidays, pets, the proposal, engagement, wedding, honeymoon, etc. All in a purely speculative manner—as in, I'm not planning these things, just picturing how they might occur." -ManInTheMirage
