Is He Into You?
I like to think that it's easy to know that a man doesn't like you. I read that book, "He's Just Not That Into You," and I'm sorry, I think it should be obvious if he isn't. Do you need someone to smack you in the head?
Even still, many women struggle with this when they're dating someone new. But instead of figuring out the signs that he doesn't dig you, let's pinpoint the signals that is very much into you. Let's go with the more positive approach. Where do you begin, you ask? Here's a checklist:
He Calls When He Says He Will
If the guy you just met or are currently dating says, "I'll give you a call," and he does, you are in. If he says he'll give you a ring and doesn't, just delete him off your phone or label his number "don't answer."
You might get a call for him days or weeks after he said he was going to, but that only means you're like a back-up friend to hang out with while everyone else is busy. Drop him like a bad habit.
He Texts You Something Sweet While He's Super-Busy
He might be at work or having dinner with a group of friends, but the boy who is into you will text you hello. He might not have anything with substance to say, but he will still contact because he's thinking of you. Now there's a sure sign he digs you.
He Asks You Out
As obvious as this is, some girls forget this. They resort to asking boys out because they think someone may be too shy or boys just aren't good with planning. The boy who likes you will set aside his dating phobias and come out of his shell, and ask you out. If he's not into you, he'll likely avoid the prospect of a date. Duh.
Even if he's not a major planner, the boy who likes you will become one. He'll think of fun things for you to do and invite you to some great outings. He wants to show you a good time because he wants you to continue hanging out. He doesn't want to disappoint you, so you're in good hands.
He Walks You to Your Door
It may sound old-fashioned, but the boy who really likes you will make the effort to show you how a gentleman should treat a lady. He'll pick you up, take you out, and at date's end walk you to the door. He won't assume that you'll invite him in, but will be stoked to be in that position. If you don't invite him in -- and on the first date, you probably shouldn't -- he'll walk to your door and give you a sweet, gentle kiss good night. At this point, it'll be obvious, not only does he respect you, he also likes you.
