When people fall in love, sometimes they're surprised! Not all of us know exactly when we start to fall for someone - it just kind of sneaks up on us and catches us off guard more than it should. So, what are the subtle signs to look for? Obviously, not everyone is the same. Some people suddenly become awkward around their person of interest, while others seem not to skip a beat at all. What are the hidden signs of falling in love, how hard are they to spot, and how can you tell whether it'll actually pan out into a real relationship? The answers to these questions can, of course, be found in the stars!
Many believe that who we are depends greatly on when we're born. You think the stars just so happened to align in certain formations throughout history and repeat certain cycles for kicks? They're trying to tell us how to understand ourselves and the world around us! When we need help, all we need to do is turn to these ancient symbols, and they'll guide us in all we do. Do you want to know the hidden signs of each member of the zodiac falling in love? Well, here they are:
24 Virgo Women Fake Indifference - And They Do It Well

The same goes for when they're in love.
A Virgo lady is pretty good at maintaining the same demeanor around a guy as the did before she realized she had feelings for him.

So a Virgo girl holds her tongue, and her emotions, until the opportune moment.

How does a Taurus deal? He makes self-depreciating jokes. He knows he's usually known for his confidence, so a part of his personality recognizes the benefits of lowering his guard and showing his girl his hidden sensitive side. He isn't always his overly-confident jock, he can be the adorable guy who gets nervous around a pretty girl too. Taurus men know women want to feel like they're seen amid the sea of admirers and letting her see his nervous side is exactly how he tells her he's starting to fall. Good job, Taurus, good strategy!

If your crush is a Gemini lady, just ask her about any run-of-the-mill rom-com and if she jumps on the topic, you'll know that she's really been putting in more time.

She just wants to enjoy what it's like to be in the beginning stages before progressing to letting her crush know what she's all about.

Libra men want to seem like they can be there for their women, and they want their crush to pay attention to them in a positive way.

13 Taurus Women Get Anxious
Speaking of confidence, a Taurus lady is generally extremely sure of herself - until her crush shows up on the scene. Suddenly she's not able to pay full attention to her friends and when she talks to them, it's obvious she isn't able to fully participate in the conversation. She's also low-key stressing because she's over-thinking how he's going to react to seeing her. While he may be entirely unaffected, she's wondering if her hair looks okay, if her makeup is on point and whether getting his attention would be a good thing or a bad thing. While the Taurus lady is internally freaking out, she's still aware that it's important for her to at least pretend to stay chill. The only cure for her anxiety? Talking to him and feeling comfortable doing so.
12 Pisces Women Draw More Attention To Themselves
If getting his attention means she needs to do something wild with her hair and think a little outside the box with her outfits, a Pisces woman is willing to do it! She doesn't necessarily care how she grabs her crush's attention so much as making sure he's actually noticing her.
Pisces girls want their crushes to start as friends and move from there, so when she's doing something crazy, he's already aware of her personality and he's laughing alongside her.
Some of the cooler Pisces ladies change up her makeup, get a haircut or start dressing with a new style to give off a "pay attention to me" vibe without seeming too over-the-top. Of course, once he's paying attention, it's only a matter of timing to get him by her side.
