Meeting someone new can bring about a whole range of feelings; excitement, fear, happiness, and sometimes even frustration – especially if you can’t work out if your date is the real deal or not.
Do they want to be in a relationship with you, or do they just enjoy talking to you as a friend? If you’re not sure, here are a few ways to tell if your date is the real deal or not.
1. They Will Speak With Actions As Well As Words
Your date doesn’t just use meaningless words to try and impress you; they actually make an effort with their actions too. From messaging you when they say they will to going out of their way to put a smile on your face, their actions totally match their words.
2. Their Friends And Family Know About You
If you’ve only been talking for a few weeks this is less important, but if it has been a few months some of their loved ones should know about your existence. This shows that they believe they could have a future with you, and it also indicates that they are proud of you and want to show you off.
3. They Will Stop Using Their Online Dating Profile
And they will do it without your request, as it will be just as important to them as it is to you.
4. They Will Be Consistent
One of the main signs that show that someone likes you is that they are consistent. If your date blows hot and cold it is probably because they are unsure about their feelings for you, but if they make a similar amount of effort with you every week you can safely assume that you are a priority for them.
5. You Will Feel Good About The Relationship
The most important indicator that someone else likes you is that you feel good about the relationship. You feel secure, confident and happy, rather than feeling confused, upset or unsure, because the person that you like makes an effort to show you that they like you too.
