If you're confused about your feelings for a guy, look out for signs he's more than just a friend. It can be difficult to decide whether you want your boy friend to be your boyfriend. He's fun to hang out with, but is he someone you want to start a relationship with? If you're unsure about your own feelings, see if you're showing any signs he's more than just a friend.
1. All in the Eyes
When he walks away, do you find yourself staring? You wouldn't look at someone for longer than necessary unless there was a reason behind doing so. If there's a lull in the conversation, do you stare into each other's eyes for an extended period of time? One of the signs he's more than just a friend is if your eyes are always on him. It's an indication that you like what you see.
2. Butterfly Texts
How do you feel when his name pops up on your phone? You'll have an instant reaction to seeing his message, so pay attention. If you're overly excited or feel a flutter in your stomach, you have feelings for him. If it takes him a while to respond to you, are you upset? Your own reactions might surprise you once you really examine them.
3. Damn Disappointment
If he misses a day of class or cancels plans, how disappointed are you? Compare it to how you'd react if a different friend failed to show up. Try to figure out why you're truly upset. Are you only mad that you missed on on a fun conversation? Or are you upset that he didn't get to see the cute outfit you were wearing?
4. Just a Little Jealousy
Do you mind if he has other friends that are girls? If you're jealous whenever he speaks to a female, you probably have feelings for him. If you try to put down any girls that he mentions positively, it's because you don't want him dating someone that isn't you. Jealousy doesn't come out of nowhere. There's always a reason behind your envy.
5. Unintentional Flirting
Sometimes we flirt without realizing it. If he tells a joke, do you react normally or do you giggle uncontrollably? When he speaks, do you hang on every word that he says? You could be sending honest signals that you like him, without even realizing it. The next time you're around him, try to pay attention to the way you act around him versus the way you act around your other friends.
6. Girl Talk
What do you talk about with your other friends or family members? If you're always bringing up his name, it's because he's important to you. If your friends think that you like him, they may be on to something. Sometimes we're the last people to realize how we really feel. The amount of times you mention his name in a day is a good indication of how much he's on your mind.
7. Dream Man
Dreams can be misleading, but daydreams are a good indication of your feelings. If you've thought about kissing him once or twice, that's normal. But if you wonder what his lips taste like every time you see him, you have feelings for him. Pay attention to how often your mind wanders toward him throughout the day. If he's always on your mind, there must be a good reason for it.
If you decide you're interested in your best buddy, decide whether or not you're ready to make a move. Have you ever had a crush on a friend? Did the situation end well?
