- He makes a real effort to be with you
It’s easy to date when you’re the one arranging everything. Let him man up and take the initiative.
He should be able to plan a proper date instead of just wanting to hang out at your place or his.
Even one night is something that can be classified as a proper date if he thinks it through and makes it romantic and sweet.
- He’s clear about what he wants
If he’s not ready for a relationship, he’ll beat around the bush, be vague in everything he says and you’ll never know where you stand.
On the other hand, if he’s up for anything, he’ll do more than just tell you, he’ll show you.
He won’t be afraid to call you or introduce you to other people as his girlfriend.
- His loved ones know about you
This is super important, a man who is serious and sure of his feelings will talk about you to his friends and family.
He will want to share his happiness with them.
You don’t have to introduce them to him from the start, but they should at least know you exist. If he’s keeping a secret from you, then he’s definitely not your boyfriend.
- Delete all of his dating apps.
If Tinder (or something similar) is still the main app on his phone, he’s not really dedicated to making things work.
A man who sees you as someone he could be serious with won’t see any point in playing the field and keeping his options open.
He’ll text and call you instead of wasting his time with dating apps.
- Never act like he owns you
Relationships are not slavery. Two people should be considered equals and there is no room for anyone to act superior.
That would be wrong and toxic on so many levels and if this happens to you, get away from him as soon as possible.
- He is relaxed about getting more intimacy.
Of course, he fantasizes about you and finds you very attractive, but when he is someone you can call your boyfriend, he will control his desires and be a gentleman about it.
A real boyfriend will respect your space, trust you, not make a fuss when you go out with your friends or make travel plans with them. You should be able to do the same for him.
- You really need to click
Chemistry is definitely the starting point of any lasting relationship. It’s like an invisible string that ties you to another person.
Chemistry is not just passion, it’s also the power that makes two people accept each other as they are, with all their flaws and virtues.
It’s important for days when you fight or get on each other’s nerves; it serves as a reminder of why you connected in the first place.
- You worry less and smile more
It sounds so simple but people seem to have a hard time understanding it these days. Love isn’t about being in emotional limbo, it’s not about playing games or giving half.
- Love is not about tears and worry.
Love is a smile on your face because everything you feel and everything you give is reciprocated.
Sure, you have problems along the way but they should never be bigger than your feelings for each other.
If you have someone who puts your happiness first, be sure to call them your boyfriend.
