One of the worst parts of singledom is undoubtedly crushing on someone when you’re pretty sure he doesn’t like you back. The truth of the matter is actually pretty simple, even if it hurts to hear: if a guy likes you, odds are he’s going to make it pretty clear that he does. Here’s how you know your feelings are reciprocated.
1. HE GOES OUT OF HIS WAY TO TEXT YOU.What’s one of the most infuriating things about liking a guy? Waiting for him to text you. But not with this guy. Any dude who really wants to make his feelings known will get your number and he’ll use it regularly. He’s going to be assertive about chatting with you and, since it’s 2017, unabashed texting is the way to do that.
2. HE ISN’T AFRAID TO DOUBLE TEXT EITHER.If he’s really determined, he won’t be afraid to break one of the scariest modern-day dating rules: the double text. Granted, he probably won’t be blowing up your phone with a stream of unanswered texts—that’s a whole different thing— but if you still haven’t answered his good morning text and he sees something funny that reminds him of you, this guy is going to take that chance and send the damn double text. He’s so brave, isn’t he?
3. HE’S EXCITED TO DO THE MOST MUNDANE THINGS WITH YOU.Yep, he’ll be jumping at trips to pick up your birth control or get milk at the grocery store. Why? Because he likes spending time with you no matter what you’re doing. Plus, he probably wants to prove to you that he’s loyal enough to do any silly little daily chore. Everyone knows a guy who goes with you to get your oil changed = boyfriend material.
4. ODDS ARE, HE’S ALWAYS BE TRYING TO MAKE PHYSICAL CONTACT.Hopefully, if he’s a good guy, it’s all consensual touching. (If not, BOY, BYE.) But if he’s really into you, watch out for lowkey PDA, such as arm touching or tucking hair behind your ear. *Swoons.*
