In this article I will reveal some sure-fire signs that your man is serious about you, so get ready to learn this exciting information!
Socially Accepted Behavior
There are socially accepted behaviors that couples in close committed relationships display. Often you can tell where you stand with a man by simply paying attention to how other people in his life see you before it ever becomes apparent to you. This is because your guy will talk about you to his friends, family, neighbors and co-workers.
Your man may not admit this to you right away, but you may overhear his friend or co-worker say to you “I’ve heard about you”, or “Hi, so, you are Jim’s girlfriend!” This is how you know you’ve been talked about.
When a man is serious about you, his friends, family and neighbors know about you, before you know it yourself.
If your man has friendly relationships with his neighbors, they know you are his girlfriend. When a neighbor comes over and you get the door, the neighbor usually will strike a conversation with you. Pay attention to the things he says to you. You can usually tell by the things he says that he knows your man is pretty darn serious about you.
Sometimes you may even overhear your neighbors talk about you on their porch. They may say things like, “Jim has a new girlfriend” or “Jim’s new girlfriend seems nice”.
If your man is going to his country club and wants to introduce you to his buddies from the country club, this is usually a good sign. Also, listen closely to what he says to his buddies and how he introduces you. If he says “This is Melinda” read between the lines “this is my date”. If he says “This is my girlfriend Melinda” read between the lines “I am serious about this relationship and hope it will progress toward something serious”.
When your guy is invited to a party, his friends will usually invite both of you. They will automatically extend an invitation to both of you.
Basically pay attention how people in your man’s life treat you – do they treat you as his girlfriend or a stranger?
This will give you a clear indication of whether you’ve been talked about by your man and what he is saying about you when you don’t hear.
If a man is falling in love with you, he will talk about you a whole lot. You will always be on his mind, and will be his most favorite topic to talk about. Before you even know it, all his friends, co-workers and neighbors know about you.
On the contrary, if no one in his life knows about you, or he has not introduced you to any of his friends, this is a pretty bad sign, especially if you have been dating for a while. But don’t worry! Read This Page to learn how to take your relationship from casual to serious!
Activities and Spending Time Together
Doing things together outside of work and spending most of the free time together is another strong indicator that a man is serious about you.
I have this FaceBook friend who is a woman in her early twenties who has a boyfriend. Every time she posts pictures, videos, and other FaceBook updates, she is always with her boyfriend. In fact I have never seen her without him, and although I don’t know this woman personally (I have a large network on FaceBook friends/professional connections in the fashion and modeling business) I know that she has a boyfriend because it is pretty apparent.
As long as you and your guy spend time mostly separately, and meet up on occasion, you are his date. When you start spending more time together, this means your relationship is going somewhere.
You can never tell where it will end up because not every date becomes a marriage, but as long as you are progressively spending more time together by both your initiatives, your relationship is going exactly where you want it to go.
Using FaceBook To Tell Where Your Relationship Is Going
It goes without saying that if a man is anything but serious about you, the two of you should be linked on FaceBook. If you are not, this means he is not at all serious about you at this time.
Facebook allows the listing of relationships in your profile – but until the person you’re in a relationship with confirms it you will only be listed as in a relationship. Thus you will be tagged as ‘in a relationship’ but not with whom.
As long as your guy’s FaceBook page lists his status as ‘single’ and especially indicates that he is interested in ‘women’ and is looking for ‘dating’ or ‘a relationship’ amongst other options your relationship is not serious.
When you notice changes in his relationship status on FaceBook, for instance, if his ‘single’ status disappears, you can tell he is getting more serious about you or about some other woman if he is going out with more than one woman.
If he starts posting pictures of both you and he doing some things together, and on top of that ‘tags’ you in those pictures, you can tell he wants people to know about your relationship, which is a good sign he is getting serious. However, people also ‘tag’ their friends in the pictures they post, so you shouldn’t be paranoid if he is posting a ten-year-old photo from college he has just scanned and tags his female friends from college in that photo.
In case you don’t know what ‘tagging’ feature means on FaceBook, this is an option to specify who appears in the picture, and to link to their FaceBook profile. So, if your man is posting pictures of the two of you, and is linking those photos in which you appear to your FaceBook profile he is basically open about letting the world know he is spending time with you.
And finally if you receive a relationship approval request from him on FaceBook, you know for sure, he is ready to announce to the world he is serious about you.
