I'm seeking Friends to something more that loves fantage

You text each other all the time. One minute you're dishing with your BFF about spin class and your love of frozen yogurt, the next minute you're wondering if your pal is about to lean across the couch and kiss you. It can be hard to tell the difference between romantic relationships and platonic relationshipsand often times, each kind of relationship is sprinkled with a bit of the other.


Friends To Something More

About

Dating a friend is widely recognized to be a pursuit fraught with potential complications. I learned this lesson the hard way when I started dating a friend in high school. Not only were we good friends, but our families were also extremely close and had been for years. When we broke up nine months later, all the usual post-breakup awkwardness and bitterness were multiplied tenfold by the fact that we were forced to hang out whenever our families got together, which was often. On the flip side, when we rekindled the flame after college, our friendship and the friendship between our families became one of the best parts about our more-than-friendship.

Either way, it feels like more than friendship, at least to you.

Should you get your hopes up? Here are 21 of the biggest s that he definitely feels something more:.

21 undeniable s he likes you more than a friend

He wants to know everything about you—every scar, every triumph, and every tragedy. But when a man is interested in a woman romantically, how much he wants to know her reaches a completely different level, and the way he approaches learning her story will just feel different. Does he press for more details about something that happened to you when you make an offhand remark?

Almost like he wants to remember it like you do, like he was there? This means he wants to really understand your experiences and how they made you who you are. Men show who they are and what they want with actions, not words. First, the contact has to be often.

Or maybe he considers you a casual friend that he wants to keep. But a man who is interested in more than friendship will reach out often.

Making good friends

A man who is not trying to see you in person is not a man who is interested in you romantically. A man who is interested in you romantically will not leave it up to you to call or text, he will initiate that contact regularly himself, and he will follow up by pursuing face-to-face meetings. Watch especially how he talks with other women you know. Does he maintain a lot of eye contact with them?

Ask them a lot of follow-up questions? Not in a gross, aggressive, inappropriate kind of way.

These innocent touches are also his way of gauging how you feel about him — are you receptive or do you immediately flinch and recoil? Would he remember this stuff when it comes to his guy friends? When we like someone or something, we like to look at it … a lot. Compatibility is important to them, too. Or, he could be in a relationship with someone he truly loves. So, if he stares at you a lot, yay!

Now, look at that in context.

What else is he doing or not doing? This is what that will look like: he sees an interesting article … finds a funny meme … passes by that restaurant you were telling him about … learns your favorite band is coming to town …hears a funny joke you might like … and yes, he shares all of that with you. But there are still ways to tell if you two stand a chance at being more than friends.

Does he try to catch you alone? Not everyone operates at the same pace.

I love my best friend: the difference between friend love and something more

A guy who wants to be more than friends will be more assertive than a guy with no romantic feelings for you at all, but remember that if he likes you that could actually make him more shy and afraid of rejection and therefore less assertive in the beginning, causing him to move slowly to gauge your response to him. Some guys will be less verbal than others, so their compliments may be more indirect.

But a man who likes you as more than a friend will make an effort to please you by voicing in one way or another how much he likes you. Does he seem a little shifty, a little uncomfortable, maybe a little shy and awkward?

Pay attention to how he is in daily life and compare that to how he is around you. Is he just a shy and awkward guy in general, or are you evoking that side of him?

If it seems like you make him nervous, then keep that in mind when looking at the other s here and consider whether or not other s point to him liking you but not being ready to show it right away. Asking for one-on-one hangouts without asking for a proper date right away is one example.

Taken together with him being shy and awkward around you, this probably means he likes you but will need to take things slowly. If a man gets jealous when you mention other guys, or when he sees you talking to other guys, then he likes you as more than a friend.

Does he decide to volunteer at the same place you do? Ask if he can your hiking group, or show up at the coffee place you like? These are s he wants to spend more time with you doing the things you love, and that usually indicates more than platonic interest. As with the other s, you need to compare how he is with other people to how he is with you. Does he tease you? Does he seem to light up around you? When you enter the room, do his eyebrows raise at the sight of you?

Does his voice change, his demeanor brighten? One of the biggest tells when it comes to determining whether someone likes you is eye contact. A big that he only sees you as a friend is that he confides in you about his love life. A guy who likes you will jump at the chance to help. A man who always wants to help you is saying that he wants a certain role in your life that goes beyond regular friendship. He wants you to rely on him and be taken care of by him.

5 couples who went from “just friends” to “more than friends”

But as we mentioned, a guy with romantic feelings is going to stare at you. If a guy friend is quick to notice and mention when you change things up, he probably is attracted to you. The key is, how is he on social media in general?

Respect is incredibly important to men. If he respects you as a person, values your opinions, and seems to admire you, then chances increase that he will like you as more than a friend. Men show respect in a lot of ways, but one way to know if a man respects you is that he will respect your time. When a person is valuable, their time is valuable, too. Think Again…. And finally, the most obvious of all: if he likes you as more than a friend, he will make a concrete effort to take it beyond friendship by asking you out. And the most important takeaway to remember: no man is ever worried about ruining a friendship if he has the opportunity to be with a girl he really likes.

I hope this article gave you clarity on how he feels about you.

Also, did you know that there is one pivotal moment in a relationship that basically determines your fate as a couple? At some point the guy will ask himself: Is this the woman I want to settle down with? Do you know what inspires a man to commit?

He text me every day. He pretty much tells me more about him than at first. He told me 2 names of girls who are not girlfriends but just dates. He does not explain their sex stores ect. He asked if I date.

I said. I went out with someone last year. He said there is plenty guys in Sacramento where I live.

He lives in LA. I told him I think we will, we communicate well in the text without fighting. I sent him picture of the almond bread I made from scratch he told me munch, munch munch. He tells me he wants to be good friends. He also mentioned schedule keeps him busy will do his best. He knows how to flirt, poke me on FB to get my attention. When I ignored him for 3 days. Then I thanked him for giving good advise on beefing up my workout to an hour each day.

My name in a sentence not alot but he has.

What if we’re not just friends?

He always answers my text right away. I noticed he has been answering sooner in the morning at times throughout the day when he is at work. And will text in the evening. Nothing rude!

Am I wrong to feel this way just by how he is texting me. He thought about it. After new years he told me he planned on moving back.

Dating help: are we just friends, or is there something more?

Is this a dead end or do I have hope! I am in my fifties and divorced. I live in a townhouse community. I have started walking with a man I met in my neighborhood. He is a widow.
