Relationships can be tricky to decipher. A guy who seems super into you one minute might blow you off the next day.
Here are some clues that a guy wants to stick around in your life for a long time. If he does more than a couple of these things, he’s in love with you and he wants you to know it.
1. He hangs out with your family.
Going along to someone else’s family obligation is something that most of us dread. You never know what kind of awkward arguments will pop up among family members, and you’re generally stuck in the situation until your partner decides you can leave.
If your man willingly rides along to visit your family members, he figures he’s in your life for the long haul. He wants to get to know and like the people who might become his in-laws someday.
2. He asks you for fashion advice.
It’s possible he just thinks you’re a fashion guru. But chances are he wants to impress you by caring about style and wearing the clothes that you think are cool.
3. He wants to run errands with you.
Let’s face it. Even the most interesting person in the world has boring tasks to take care of. If a man insists on riding along to the bank and grocery store with you, it’s not because the activity itself is fun. He’s basically playing house and trying to spend as much time with you as possible.
4. He eagerly fixes things around your house or apartment.
Another way men try to show their value to women is by being a handy man. He may notice a burnt out light bulb or missing caulk in the bathtub and offer to fix the problem.
Even when a task is super easy, like changing an air filter, men like to take care of the situation. The reason? They want to prove that they’d be a good husband.
5. He makes a meal for you.
He may not be a master chef, but if he studiously follows a recipe to make a special treat, he’s very much into you. Guys that go outside of their comfort zone to make you happy are trying to prove that they’re worth having around.
6. He plans special dates or trips.
Most men like to wing it and do whatever sounds fun at the moment. This doesn’t always satisfy the hopes and dreams of their partners, though. Men that are in love know this and will plan special days that they know will delight you.
7. He listens to your stories and remembers details from them.
We all tell boring stories and share insignificant details from time to time. While polite people try to listen and nod, they’re not always paying complete attention.
If your man remembers details about your friends and family from those stories, he really cares about what your saying. He’s trying to learn more about you because he wants to be closer with you. That can be a rarity in today’s fast-paced world.
