Has he made any move to get a full time job and move out of his parents’ basement?Does he think acting like an adult is turning a dirty shirt inside out for a nice date?There’s another guy just waiting for you to make a move.
If he’s not into you, he’ll either not respond to your advances, tell you he’s interested or pull away. Any guy who wants to be your boyfriend will take this opportunity to score brownie points by mentioning you as part of his future. Basically, does he act like a frat boy in the middle of a party?
It’s a quick and easy way to see what he thinks about you. Unless he’s drunk, he’s going to be on his best behavior around you if he’s interested.
If he’s not, you’re going to see the side of him only his guy friends see. Most decent guys try to impress a woman they’re interested in by working to improve themselves, especially if they’ve been friends with the woman for a while.
Unless, of course, you prefer the challenges of trying to meet and connect someone who doesn't know anything about you.
While I don't regret the romantic misadventures I had before things clicked with my best friend and I, I definitely wish I could go back and tell myself that dating didn't have to be so difficult, or so heartbreaking — the key to true happiness was right in front of me the entire time.
