    without him realizing it

    Which of these sentences are correct:

    1) There have been a lot of women who fell in love with him without him realizing it.


    2) There have been a lot of women who fell in love with him and he didn't realize.

    3) There have been a lot of women who fell in love with him but he didn't realize.

    4) There have been a lot of women who fell in love with him and he didn't realize it.

    5) There have been a lot of women who fell in love with him but he didn't realize it.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: without him realizing it

    1) is the best but could be improved by changing past tense fell to present perfect have fallen. The others are not good.
