Is he into me? 5 tell-tale signs they're ready for a serious relationship
1. Staying in or going out?
If it's becoming easier to arrange dates with your partner - do they seem to prefer staying in or doing things with you? - it's a clear sign they want to take things to the next level. That's Sam's first piece of advice for anyone in this position; if your date appears to be dropping plans with others or is always available to you, "this is a sign that they are more into your partnership than single life". The test? Call your man after work on Friday and ask him out for a drink; if he doesn't hesitate to drop his plans, you know you're onto a winner!
2. Privacy, what privacy?
In Sam's words, "if your partner offers you things like a key to their house or their phone and social media passwords, you know they're getting serious". This might sound obvious, but if you're constantly wondering "is he into me", there's little as comforting as being wholly welcomed into your partner's life. Any residual qualms about them seeing someone else or not thinking about your relationship with the long-term in mind can subside. It's a huge signal of intent if your partner starts to think of your relationship as a true partnership, where you want to share - not hide - everything between you. The trust involved suggests he considers you as a true partner in life, and has no interest in keeping you outside some aspect of his life. Another sure sign he's into you is sharing his private concerns; take this as a sign he considers you a true friend and not just a lover. That's the basis for a serious relationship.
