Tips for Telling if a Man Really Likes You

  • He will ask you for dates in advance – though he may spontaneously call and ask you out for the same night, he will also plan ahead to schedule time you can spend together.
  • When he kisses you, he will take your hand and kiss it, or give you an extra good-night kiss on the forehead – he’ll kiss you on the mouth, too, but his attentions to you will be romantic.
  • He will remember things you told him about what you’ve been ding at work or socially, and ask you how they went.
  • He won’t make you feel insecure; he will call when he says he will and turn up on time for your dates.
  • He will make an effort with his appearance – on your dates he will be well dresses and groomed.
  • He may well call or e-mail you after a date to say what a great time he had. This is one of the best signs of all that he likes you seriously!
  • He will make you feel included in his life by telling you about his day, his friends and his interests.

I think it’s cute.
