10 Signs He Wants A Relationship

By on October 4, 2013

Here’s an age-old problem: It is hard to read men. But, that’s why this article is here for you to read today to help you decide if your man is ready for that next step. Determining the difference between a guy who is ready for a relationship and a guy who is just messing around can be really tough. But, when you break it down- it’s not that difficult at all! You just have to know what to be watching out for. Here are 10 signs that a guy wants a relationship:


Sign #1.) A guy who pays attention to you is a guy who may just be ready for the next step. Men aren’t truly attentive creatures unless with someone or something they really care very deeply for. So, if you’re boy has been displaying quite a bit of his attention towards you, you may have a winner! But, how can you tell? Well: He will look at you and make eye contact you when he is talking or when you’re talking. He will ask you questions and always reply when you two are conversing. He will always try to relate and be involved fully into your discussion. He will also ask you for his input when it comes to him talking to you.


Sign #2.) A guy who wants to get to know you on a personal level may be ready to have a real relationship with you. Men don’t usually waste their time getting to know people they don’t have future intentions with. If he is trying to get to know you he won’t just ask, “How’s your day been going?” or “What do you do for a living?” He will go deeper and ask you what you like or dislike about your job, what your hobbies are, favorite foods, music and he might ask about your family or past relationships. If this guy is intrigued, he’ll most likely try to get to know everything about you.


Sign #3.) If he is ready to be your boyfriend he won’t keep hanging around other girls. Let’s forget about his sister, his mom and maybe that best friend he’s had since preschool… No, I’m talking about all the other girls that he flirted with before or that try to flirt with him now. He will put an end to that or just ignore them. He will, all in all, stop paying attention to all girls that aren’t you!


Signs #4.) Does your favorite guy keep you in the loop about his future plans? Good! He may  just be ready for commitment then! Guys only keep girls they considered a big part of their lives in their personal loops. If he does let you know about what his work schedule looks like, if he is taking any vacation or if he is going out of town or to an event, then he probably considers you more than just a friend.


Signs #5.) He should be a shoulder to cry on at all times, if he’s relationship ready.  If a guy is always there for you and is a constant shoulder to lean on- you have found your future boyfriend. No matter what, he will always try to be there for you. He will give you his best advice when you ask for it, he will bring the tissues when you are sad and he’ll always try to cheer you up when you are feeling down. Keep in mind, though, that if he is ready for you to be his girlfriend, he will expect you to have the same shoulder to lean on for him!


Sign #6.) A man ready for a relationship with you will make sure you are involved with his family and close friends. He will do everything he can to get you guys to meet and know each other and he will also do his best to get you to like each other. You all liking each other is very important to him and if he is trying to make that happen then he is definitely ready for that next step. A guy only brings a girlfriend-type of girl home to his family.


Sign #7.) A relationship-ready fella will display his trust towards you. He will treasure your thoughts and opinions about his decisions and what you have to say altogether. He will respect your advice.


Signs #8.) Patience is something huge to look out for when trying to figure out if a guy is ready for a relationship or not. If your guy doesn’t spend his time rushing you into anything, whether it be skydiving, running away to mexico, trying sushi or …. well, you know! A man who is patient with you, waits for you to be ready and respects the pace you want to take with things,  is a man ready to make you his girlfriend.


Signs #9.) You can tell a guy is ready for a relationship if he is trying to spend a lot of quality time with you. That means he is spending more than 1o minutes at a time with you. It means that he doesn’t just come around to sleep with you and that you see him in broad daylight. A guy ready to date won’t mind running errands with you or going out in public with you- he will actually enjoy spending any time with you!


Sign #10.) Any guy who looks at a girl as girlfriend-material, will keep in good contact with her. He will consistently message, call or text you everyday. He will reply to your texts or messages right away (unless he really is busy), but he won’t keep you waiting for long. He will make you a priority and make sure you stay in touch.

    I was seeing this guy for a few months now… we went on a trip to Chicago. After that I found out his true colors. And I was the one to break off our friendship because at one point he disrespected me on our trip. He was hurt that I wanted to end the friendship. Then I said we can try to just be friends. He said “he will always be there for me.” But I just feel like something has changed between us. We don’t talk Iike we use to and and then he said we should have coffee. But we never did. I do want to be friends with this guy but am I too late to redeem the friendship?

      The two of you dated and you decided to end this relationship. You made this decision because you did not feel respected. The two of you talked about maintaining your friendship, though there has been no follow through. Allow thoughts of him to fade. If he reaches out to you in the future, then share your kindness and compassion with him. Have a great day, Brena!

      It is possible that he is interested in developing an emotional relationship with you. He may want to be your friend. He may be thinking about a physical encounter. Determine what you want for your future. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. If he treats you respectfully and you feel comfortable with the situation, then act as you feel appropriate at that time. Have a great day, Cruzz!

    So recently I’ve been hooking up with this guy and I asked him if we were exclusively having sex ..he said yes. But he also said hes not jealous Nd if I do have Sex with other guys to wear a condom. He’s very attentive and affection towards me and calls me his baby n little lady. But then he says things like this and it confuses me. I just need an opinion on whether you think that since he said we’re exclusively having sex that means eventually it will lead to exclusively dating ? Or if it seems like he’s even interested in taking it to the next level ?

      It is possible that he is interested in nourishing this relationship. He does not want to control your actions, but he wants to ensure that you are safe. This means that he cares for you and wants to have the option of a relationship open. You may want to speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Lulu!

        The two of you have developed a strong emotional relationship. Disagreements are common in relationships, especially long distance relationships. Attempt to meet with him in person, as this will strengthen your relationship with him. Make a plan and stick with it. Share your thoughts and feelings with him. Have a great day, May!

    we’ve been seeing/dating for about a month now. We text each other all day, every day. With our busy schedules we still manage to see each other once a week, everything just goes so well. He really respects me, he didn’t make any moves to make me feel slightly uncomfortable. He waited until I made the first move. The convo we have is getting more and more intimate, but not those naughty talk yet. Probably because it’s only been a month, and he’s more of an introvert type, so I haven’t met his friends, neither has him. I’m just wondering if I should initiate ” the talk”, or wait for him to bring it up? I feel like he’s ready for a serious relationship, but I won’t feel secure till i hear it myself.

      Attempt to make additional time in your life for the two of you to speak. Speak directly and honesty with him about your thoughts and feelings. Take this time to determine if you want to establish a relationship with him at this time. He also may view you as a friend and may want to share his life with you. Allow him to share his thoughts with you as well. Have a greta day, Joan!

      It sounds like the two of you have developed the start of a relationship. If you want to nourish your relationship, then speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Attempt to spend additional time with him to nourish this relationship. Your relationship will naturally fade unless you take action. Have a great day, Joan!

    My boyfriend exhibits most of the points in this article, but he is constantly talking about one of his exes. We will do something and he will bring her up like “oh we did this and it was amazing”. How can I tell him that he is feeding my insecurities and hurting my feelings when he talks about her so much?

      You should speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Your feelings are reasonable. He should respect what you say to him. If he does not change his actions, then you may want to take a second look at your current relationship. It is possible that he wants to develop a relationship with his ex, so ask him about his feelings. Have a great day, Tamara!

    My close friend exhibits most of the points mentioned in this article and does his other actions which he exhibits on a regular basis also give me the impression that we may in fact be more than close friends. I also have feelings towards him way past just being a friend.
    However very recently he phoned me and could hear that he was very emotional whilst telling me about something which has happened earlier in the day. I immediately went to be with him. Whilst being with him he was still very emotional and even told me that I have made him starting to break down his walls which he has put up because of past experiences. Later on told me that he will need me to give him some time and space to work things through internally, which I agreed to do.
    Lastly he says he feels bad for letting me down and putting me through a difficult situation as we already had plans for the weekend long before this day. What’s your take on this and how do you think I can go about handling this?

      It sounds like the two of you would be best served by reaching out to your partner. This will help you determine if you want to nourish your relationship. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. If he sounds like he is willing to put forth the effort required to be a good partner and you want to continue your relationship, then your relationship will flourish. Have a great day, Christene!

    If I like a guy very much and I’m not sure of how he really feels about me should I be the first person to tell him I’ve got feelings for him or should he be the first one to acknowledge his feelings towards me? I really would like to be involved in a relationship with him and would not mind him moving things towards a relationship as we are good friends at this stage and he treats me well and with respect.

      It doesn’t really matter who is the first person as long as someone makes that step. Since you do not know if he likes you at all though, I would try flirting with him and see how he responds. He is already your friend though, so it seems like it is possible that he could like you. After all, you are friends for a reason. If it were me, I would probably just tell him how you feel. Good luck, Cindy!
