10 Signs he wants to be more than friends
In a world where it is perfectly acceptable and proper for people of the opposite gender to be good friends, it can sometimes be difficult to spot the signs that he would like to be more than just friends. If you get the feeling that a friendship could develop into something more, here are ten signs that might confirm your suspicions:
1. He goes out of his way to help you
One of the signs he wants to be more than friends is when he goes out of his way to help you. Any good gentleman friend will open doors for you and help you out, but when he starts to offer to decorate your lounge for you, then he is definitely starting to think of you, as more than just a friend.
2. He looks you in the eye
Have you noticed how he looks at you? If he’s staring into your eyes, when you talk that is showing you how interested he is in you and this is another one of signs he wants to be more than friends. We don’t mean in a creepy way, but you can tell when he is genuinely interested in what you have to say and he wants to learn more about you.
3. You have started to talk more on the phone
Signs he wants to be more than friends also include long phone conversations. Has the occasional call to say ‘hi’, become a regular evening phone call to catch up with you? If you find yourself having lengthy telephone conversations, for no real reason, then this might be someone who wants to be more involved in your life, not a man who simply wants to meet for a drink once in a while.
4. He can’t keep his hands off you
If he keeps finding reasons to touch you, not in a ‘threatening way’, but just by placing his hand on your shoulder or sitting close by, next to you, then is a sure sign that he would like to move things along a bit with you.
5. His attention is always focused on you
When you are at a party or in a social gathering, you might have noticed that he spends more time with you, than anyone else, this is another one of those signs he wants to be more than friends. This is especially telling if he is ignoring his male friends, as he would rather be spending his time with you.
6. He trusts you with secrets
Men don’t share their feelings with just anyone. If your friend has started to share his feelings and thoughts with you and ask for advice, then that’s a sign that he has fallen for you. Men reserve that kind of intimacy for the people in their lives that they really deeply care for, not simply all their friends.
7. He makes jokes about dating you
Another one of signs that he wants to be more than friends is if he’s making jokes about the two of you dating; he could be more serious about it than you think. This is often a way that guys will test the water with a girl, because it’s easier to brush off as nothing more than a joke, if he gets a definite refusal.
8. He wants to know everything about you
He wants to know far more about you than just a friend would. He’s probably full of questions about your home life, family and especially any other male friends that you have. You might even be able to spot a little jealousy creeping into some of those questions, when they are about other guys in your life.
9. He smiles a lot, when you are around
If you notice that he smiles a lot when he’s around you, then this could be a sign he is really smitten. Watch especially to see how his face lights up when he first says ‘hello’ to you. That beaming smile will show you how pleased he is to see you and this is another one of those signs he wants to be more than friends with you.
10. He keeps on telling you what a special friend you are
If he is forever telling you that you are his friend, his very special friend and how important you are to him, then he could be trying to hide his true feelings. He’s actually dying to tell you the truth, but is scared that you might reject him and then he could lose his ‘friend’ altogether.
