These feelings occur somewhere after the first few dates but before the committal stage. There is a preoccupation about whether or not we are on the same page with the person we truly like. Is this person as serious as we might be about a future together?
We cannot always tell what our new man is looking for and we are not always able to recognize the signs that he’s ready to take the relationship to the next level. As the old saying goes: “It doesn’t take much to be in love. But it takes a lot to be in a relationship.”
Based on my own experiences and research, as well as conversations I’ve had with my friends, I’ve created some guidelines to help women recognize the signs that can really help us know whether the man we are involved with is actually ready for the lasting partnership we crave.
The common signs he wants a relationship:
He pays attention, as simple as that. He asks questions and is always involved fully in discussions. He notices small things and shows a genuine interest in you.
He calls and checks how you are. He makes time even if he is really busy. He responds quickly to emails or texts. He initiates dates to meet up.
He wants to know you on a personal level and he is there when you need him. He lets you in to the personal parts of his life. When you need a shoulder to cry on, he’s there.
He sets his own needs aside to help you out with something and his focus is towards you. If he just senses when he’s needed without your prompts, that’s a very good indicator that he’s probably ready to move the relationship forward
When a guy is listening to your every word, it is definitely a sign he wants a relationship!
That is a really big clue. A guy only brings a girl to meet his family when he is genuinely ready to commit.
He plans ahead and talks about the future and future plans that involve both of you. He wants to be together as much as possible and he is consistent with keeping plans.
There we are – seven signs that women who also want a relationship should be keen to see demonstrated in a man. If he exhibits most of them, he’s ready for love. But then again, if he is doing all of the above -you are, no doubt, in a happy and committed relationship already….!!!
