You’ve met a guy who you really like and you see that he’s not indifferent toward you either.
But you can’t tell what exactly he has in mind when it comes to you, no matter how hard you try to read between the lines.
And that is nothing unusual. In the modern dating world, it’s hard to tell what someone’s real intentions for you are.
It is not so confusing to figure out if a guy likes you as much as it is challenging to realize how much he likes you.
You never know where you really stand—you can’t tell whether a guy just wants to sleep with you, if he has a serious relationship on his mind or if he just has a meaningless crush on you.
So, if you have doubts about any of this, here are 5 signs that will show you that you are more than a crush to him.
He tells you that you make him calm
When a guy tells you that you make him calm, at first, you don’t like what you hear.
You are worried that he wants to say that you are not interesting enough and that you bore him.
But think again! If a guy you’ve been seeing lately has told you that he feels peaceful around you, this is one of the biggest compliments he could give you, because it is one the signs that you are more than just a crush to him.
It doesn’t mean your presence doesn’t cause him to feel butterflies and even if it does, it is not a bad thing.
He thinks of you as his sanctuary from all life’s problems, as his harbor, and that is one of the most beautiful things a man can say to a woman.
He likes your body and soul
Let’s face it—when we meet a person of the opposite sex, the first thing that we pay attention to is their physical looks. This is especially the case with men.
No matter what they try to tell you, the first thing that came to mind when they saw you was to sleep with you.
And there is nothing wrong with that—that is just our primary instinct. But if a guy looks past your body, that usually means something more.
Don’t get all freaked out for nothing—it doesn’t mean that he is not attracted to your body, it only means that you are more than a piece of meat to him and you should be flattered by that.
He asks for your opinion
Most men don’t like women they’ve just met because of their opinions and attitudes.
They don’t want to boost your ego and they think it’s putting you above themself if they consult with you.
But if a guy you’ve just started seeing obviously appreciates your opinions and everything you have to say, it is one of the signs that you are more than a crush to him.
He values and respects you not only as his date or as a potential girlfriend but also as a woman and as a person.
He thinks of you two as equals and is not intimidated by your brain.
Sex is not a priority for him
We all want to have sex with the people we are attracted to and if a man tells you he hasn’t even thought about sleeping with you, he’s lying to your face.
But if a guy doesn’t insist on doing anything you are not ready for and if he doesn’t behave like he just wants sex, it is quite likely that he thinks of you as more than a simple crush.
This man respects you and therefore has respect for your boundaries.
Besides, he is happy just to be with you and he knows that there exists levels of intimacy other than sex.
You two have meaningful conversations
When you are just getting to know a guy, your entire conversation will probably be based on sexual allusions and will have sexual connotations.
You two will flirt all the time, sending each other mixed signals and asking each other flirty questions. But with this guy, everything is different.
He doesn’t play mind games with you and you feel like he’s really being honest with most of the things he says.
Both of you feel free enough to talk about each other’s flaws, without the fear that the other person will run away.
You two have meaningful communication, which is not based only on a relationship or sexual topics or small talk.
Instead, you talk about your dreams, hopes and fears and he acts like he is really interested in getting to know the real you.
