What's better than a sweet and sexy boyfriend? One who's also an incredible friend! Making the move from friend zone to romance can be tricky, not to mention nerve-wracking when you have to 'fess up to your true feelings. Here are some signs he may be feeling the love, too!

You talk every day

Is he the first number you dial when you have news? It's not uncommon to have a friend you call every Friday or Saturday night when you're looking for something to do. If you find yourself talking to this friend nearly every day, though, there may be more to it. Can you imagine going to bed without talking to him at least once throughout the day? Does he call or text to tell you good night? If so, he may be more than just your bud.

It's just the two of you

Have you been keeping him to yourself? If you rarely get together without another friend joining in, that's a good sign that you may really be just friends. If you've detached from the larger circle, however, things may be different. Craving one-on-one time together is a good sign that you'd both like something more.

You spend holidays together

Holidays are reserved for those we hold most near and dear. If you can't imagine a holiday passing by without spending some time in each other's company, you may mean more to each other than you realize.

You don't talk about dates

Do you dare mention your last date? You may both be seeing other people, but that doesn't mean it has to make it onto the conversation list. If you rarely discuss your other relationships with this friend, think about the reason. Do you not mention your boyfriends because you don't want to hear about his girlfriends? Do you get jealous? Does he? Maybe the reason you don't talk about it is because you'd rather be dating each other.

You do talk about dates

Never mentioning your love life can be a sign of better things to come, but so can talking about it too much. If he's always asking you about your relationship, he may be looking for an opening or waiting for your guy to slip up. Do you find yourself spending a lot of time criticizing his girlfriends or giving him reasons it'll never work? That might be because you know his perfect match is you.

You don't date

Are you both single and loving it? Maybe that's because you know you've already found everything you need in each other. If you spend all your time with each other and are content in that, maybe you should be spending that time as more than friends.
