10 Signs He Wants to Make You His Girlfriend

It will drive any girl crazy not knowing if their love interest wants to take things to the next level. When you’re just in the dating stage or are simply hanging out with friends, it can be difficult to guage the other person’s feelings. But the following signs can help reveal if he’s planning on asking you to be his girlfriend. The only thing left to do? Decide what you want and make it clear, too.

  1. He Wants To Get To Know Your Interests. If someone is interested in knowing about your life and personality, whether it’s your hobbies, what you’re studying, or what you do at your job, then it’s a good sign. It shows he’s genuinely interested in and cares about the things you care about. He wants to create something long-lasting, thus why he’s putting effort into getting to know you. 
  2. He Makes An Effort to Impress You. Observe how he acts and what he does when the two of you are hanging out. If he’s going the extra mile, such as bringing you flowers or ironing his pants to make sure he looks his best, then it’s a good sign he wants to take things to the next level. After all, why would someone go out of their way if they don’t have a genuine interest in you? If you’re just a casual fling, he wouldn’t be so invested, so take it as a good sign.
  3. All Of His Friends Know About You. You know it’s serious when he tells all of his family and friends about you. It means he’s hoping to keep you around for the long-term. If he saw this as causal, he wouldn’t bother getting his friends used to the idea of the two of you. Rather, he can’t help but gush about how much fun you’re both having, it means he’s proud and excited to have you in his life.
  4. He Acts Affectionate But Not Pushy. It can be difficult telling whether someone just wants to hook-up or if they’re looking for something more. But if he’s showing signs of physical affection apart from the bedroom, it likely means he’s developing feelings. Pay attention to whether he holds your hand, touches your leg, or finds other excuses to be physically near you.
  5. He Questions If You’re Seeing Anyone. If your guy is explicitly asking whether you’re seeing anyone else, then you can be sure he has the topic of exclusivity on his mind. Or, alternatively, maybe he’s dropping hints to let you know that you’re the only one on his radar, like mentioning he deleted his dating apps. In either case, it means he’s hoping to make the two of you official sooner rather than later.
  6. He Asks How Your Day Is Going. This is a sign that he’s genuinely interested in you. It may sound simple enough, but it actually shows he’s putting in the effort if he takes the time to ask on a regular basis how your day is going. Not only does he want to make sure all is well with you, but he’s looking for a reason to have a conversation just to talk to you. It’s a sure sign he’s catching feelings.
  7. You Hang Out One-On-One. If the two of you are constantly spending time together, then becoming girlfriend and boyfriend is a natural step. Take it as a good sign if he’s always looking for opportunities to hang out only with you. On the other hand, if he always wants to have other people there, he may be trying to convey that he’s not looking to be tied down at the moment.
  8. He Talks To You Every Day. If you two are talking every day, then you can be sure he wants you in his life full-time. He enjoys spending time with you and wants to get to know you better. It’s an even stronger sign if he’s the one initiating conversations.  It probably won’t be long before he brings up the topic of exclusivity in one of your daily conversations.
  9. He’s Shared Photos Of The Two Of You. If he’s sharing photos of the two of you, then he wants other people to know he’s got a lady in his life. While you may not be official boyfriend and girlfriend, he doesn’t mind if people assume you to be. To be fair, if your guy isn’t active on social media and doesn’t post a lot of photos to begin with, then it may explain why he hasn’t posted pictures of the two of you. So, don’t be alarmed if you’re not all over his newsfeed as of yet.
  10. He Respects Your Boundaries. This is a sign that he truly cares for your well-being. The last thing he’d want to do is hurt you, not only because it would jeopardize your chances of being together, but because he genuinely cares about you. If he’s going out of his way to accommodate what you want and is regularly checking in regarding how you feel about things, then he’s hoping to create a strong relationship that’s going to last.
