Whether they want to admit it or not, most men are quite incapable of seeing the signs that a girl wants a serious relationship with them until it’s too late. By the time they realize that, the ship has already sailed.
Things become complex and your perfect romantic story remains unfinished, leaving you both imagining what could have been if you’d only seen those signs she had been giving you.
The truth is that modern dating and relationships have become quite controversial. In today’s times, people are quite afraid of immediately showing all of their cards.
A person thinks that if they do that, they’re going to jinx things. So they start to look for the signs that their partner wants a serious relationship with them.
If a girl is really interested in you and wants a committed relationship, she’ll show signs left, right and center, and she’ll expect you to pick up on them.
You shouldn’t be like the rest of the guys who are too afraid to commit to a relationship.
I know you’ve been wondering how long you have to date a girl before taking it to the next level and starting a relationship with her.
Well, the truth is that there is no clear-cut answer to this.
It’s a rather subjective question. Only you and the girl you’ve been dating can answer this question for sure.
When two people like each other very much, things can get a little tricky.
Most people don’t like the hassle and would like it to be pretty straightforward, but it’s not.
It’s never easy when it comes to people. Instead, what you need to do is look for the signs she wants a serious relationship with you.
Let’s face it, most girls won’t make the first move and just say, “Hey, I really like you and I want to be in a committed relationship with you,” so you’ll have to look for those signs.
Dating is basically trying to decipher each other’s actions and words to see where you both stand.
Now, you can take the easy route and just ask her outright.
This would definitely save you the trouble of trying to see those signs she wants to take the next step with you.
However, I understand if you have this deeply embedded fear of being rejected by this girl.
It’s tough to open up your heart to someone and get flat out rejected by her.
I’ve seen it happen a lot and it really leaves scars on people. So, your best solution would be to look for the signs she wants to be serious with you.
Those signs mean that she really wants you; you just have to notice them. It’s for the best that you see them now before it’s too late!
In all honesty, the signs that she wants a serious relationship with you are there but can you recognize them?
1. She opens up to you without hesitation
It’s quite rare for someone to immediately open up about their life to the person they’re dating.
There needs to be a certain level of trust between each other before you can expect either of you to do so.
You shouldn’t expect a girl to pour her heart out on your first date.
Also, don’t believe that just because someone trusts you, that they want something serious with you, as that’s not always true.
There’s a possibility that she sees you only as a good friend and nothing else.
However, if a girl starts opening up to you about her life, then it’s possible that she wants a serious relationship with you.
A woman has this tendency to build walls around her, not because she’s afraid to show her emotions, but rather because there was a guy in her past who left her heartbroken. She learned her lesson there.
However, if a girl is opening up to you, then she’s letting her guard down.
She invites you to be a part of her life and that’s when you know she wants something serious with you.
2. She openly tells you about her friends and family
It may be boring for you to listen when she talks about her cousin’s train obsession or how her sister got engaged recently, but those are signs that she wants a serious relationship with you.
You shouldn’t ignore her when she talks about her family and friends. Why? Well, because they play a huge role in her life.
If anything goes wrong, her friends and family are the first ones to know about it.
And if she goes into detail about them with you, then you should take that as an unmistakable sign she wants something more with you.
She’s aware that being secretive can cause a lot of problems in a relationship, which is why she tells you the latest news about her loved ones.
She’s inviting you to be a part of her inner circle, so don’t dismiss this as just a regular sign, because it’s not.
She cares enough about you to openly talk about all of their lives, as well as hers.
3. She has high expectations of you
You’ll see how her expectations from you increase over time.
You shouldn’t be like the other guys who made her feel worthless by not showing up to their dates; no, she doesn’t want that.
She’ll get angry at you if you cancel your plans with her.
She’s probably ready to start a new chapter in her life with you by her side, as you’re special to her and that’s why she has high expectations of you.
She’ll expect you to cheer her up every time she has a bad day at work.
Also, if you’re wondering whether she’s serious about you, ask yourself how many times she calls you.
If your answer is quite often then you’ll know she’s serious. She finds ways to call you no matter how busy she is.
She doesn’t want to talk about everyday things, as she wants to get to know you better.
Those long conversations about different things have a purpose, you know.
It’s her way of telling you that she wants to have a serious relationship with you.
4. She asks you a lot of questions
This is one of those signs that men simply don’t understand. They think that a girl is being clingy or needy if she asks a lot of questions but that isn’t true.
A girl who asks you many questions is one who’s genuinely interested in your life. She wants to know everything about you and that’s why she does it.
It’s not because she’s needy, clingy, or anything similar, but it’s actually quite the opposite.
How do you expect a girl to get to know you if she doesn’t ask a lot of questions?
If she wasn’t curious about or interested in you, she wouldn’t even bother asking them.
This is one of the obvious signs that a girl wants to build a future with you and you shouldn’t be blind to it.
And even if she asks questions that seem a little bit casual, that doesn’t mean what you think it means.
She’s just scared and doesn’t want to rush into anything.
The bottom line is that she wants a serious relationship with you!
5. You can tell a lot by reading her body language
If you’re ever unsure whether a girl wants a serious relationship with you, then you should pay attention to her body language the next time you meet.
Her body language toward you will be different from when she’s just hanging out with her friends.
It’s crucial for you to identify the differences if you want to move on from dating to being in a serious relationship.
If you notice some of these signs, then know that you have won her heart.
Does she lean toward you? If your answer is yes, then she’s genuinely interested in you.
She does that because she feels safe around you. You give her the security that she needs to feel from a real man.
On top of that, she’s honestly more into you than you think if she does this.
This is why you’ll see her leaning toward you a bit while the two of you are having a ‘serious’ conversation about a particular topic.
Does she let you touch her? Well, this should be a no-brainer, really.
If she doesn’t mind when you give her light touches, then she really is into you.
She even might gather the courage to touch your knee ever so slightly, while she’s sitting next to you.
Her touch will be gentle and soft because she doesn’t want to make it too obvious that she’s attracted to you.
Does she fix her hair while she’s on a date with you? If your answer is yes, then she’s sincerely interested in you.
A girl who frequently fixes her hair while on a date with you has a crush on you and wants something more.
She feels nervous around you and doesn’t know what to do with her hands.
The only thing that matters to her at that time is her looks and whether you find her attractive.
She knows that men find women’s hair to be particularly appealing, and that’s why she’ll fix her hair every once in a while to make a strong impression on you.
6. She’s very responsive
If a girl wants a serious relationship with you, she won’t waste her time abiding by the ‘three day rule’ and she most definitely won’t ghost you.
She’ll find a way to show you that she doesn’t want to keep you guessing about whether or not she’s serious about you.
She won’t play any mind games with you and she won’t make you wait for her responses because she values your time and efforts.
She’ll be very responsive and she’ll make an effort so that you two can spend as much time together as possible because she wants to go to the next level with you.
7. She asks whether you’re dating someone else
Girls are often rather straightforward about this and they’ll ask you directly whether you’re dating someone else, with a few exceptions.
Maybe your girl is shy and doesn’t dare to ask you.
In that case, she might lead the conversation by letting you know she isn’t dating anyone else and she’ll wait for you to say the same thing.
This is a pivotal moment in your dating life, trust me. And the answer to this question isn’t as simple as you think it is.
If you’re honestly dating other women then you should definitely say that to her and not mislead her in any way.
However, if you’re also serious about her, be forthright with her and tell her you have feelings for her too.
If you gather enough courage, you’ll definitely be rewarded.
8. She remembers all the little details about you
Remember, those big signs don’t always give you the answer to your question.
So, additionally, you should pay attention to the small things she does.
That’s why if you’ve been wondering whether she wants a serious relationship with you, then you should pay attention to how much she remembers about you.
Does she know what your favorite color is? Does she know that the first thing you do in the morning is make a cup of coffee?
If she remembers the tiniest details, that’s a pretty big deal and you likely don’t even notice it.
She’s genuinely invested in finding out as much about you as possible and remembering them is a huge deal, trust me.
9. She opens up about her past relationships
Most girls don’t want to openly talk about their past because they give their best to bury it and move on.
They don’t want to remember something that broke them into a million pieces.
However, if a girl wants to have a serious relationship with you, then she’ll talk honestly about her past and let you know she’s been hurt before and that’s the real reason why she built those walls around her.
She’ll open up about her vulnerabilities and she’ll let you see her past even though she took her time to build those walls.
However, with you, she feels safe and secure enough to open up about her past relationships.
She trusts you and she truly believes that you won’t hurt her like those exes did.
10. She constantly glances at you
Tell me this: Out of the corner of your eye, do you catch her looking at you?
You know those little glances really mean something, they’re not at all meaningless.
She’s attracted to you a lot if you see her looking at you with a very intense stare.
She’ll even try to find you in a room filled with other boys, and her eyes will only look at you.
That’s when you know she wants a serious relationship with you.
She might look away if she sees you looking at her or she’ll pretend like nothing happened.
It’s just she doesn’t want to be embarrassed and doesn’t want to scare you off.
11. She has started giving you cute nicknames is an obvious sign she wants a serious relationship with you
Only those whom we hold dear have cute nicknames, right? You give your friends and family pet names because you love them.
And when a girl wants to move forward from dating into a serious relationship, then she’ll start giving you cute nicknames too.
She does that because she wants you to separate her from your other friends.
She doesn’t want you to think about her as just a friend because you’re not.
If she’s shy, she’ll blush a couple of times when she calls you those sweet nicknames. You shouldn’t be shy about it either and you should reciprocate.
Make her feel comfortable and give her an adorable nickname too.
If you do that, then you’ll create a deeper bond with her and that’s when your relationship will move forward.
12. She’s playful with you
A girl who loves teasing you and who’s playful with you likes you a lot. And you know you like it too.
This is a telltale sign that she wants a serious relationship with you.
Acting this way helps her ease the situation a little bit and it gives her the opportunity to hide the fact that she’s really into you.
If she’s playful with you then you should step up your game and tease her a bit as well.
Perhaps she doesn’t know how to take the next step and is waiting for you to make a move?
13. She can’t be angry at you for long
Well, every relationship has its share of arguments and fights.
The truth is no matter how much we love someone, there will be times when they drive us crazy.
There’s no doubt that every couple has quarrels, but the important thing is to resolve them together and move on.
And if she can’t be angry at you for long then you know she wants a serious relationship with you.
She doesn’t want to live in a war zone where the two of you are constantly arguing about silly stuff.
She wants a boyfriend who won’t hold a grudge and who knows how to say sorry when he makes a mistake.
If she isn’t angry at you for long, then you know she’s being real with you and she wants something more.
14. She includes you in her future plans
If she wants to be your girlfriend, then she’ll want to spend most of her time with you and not with other guys.
She’ll include you in her future plans because she wants you by her side.
She’ll include you in almost all of her plans because she wants to spend as much time with you as possible.
The only thing you should worry about is whether you share the same feelings for her as she does for you.
She wants a serious relationship with you and she wants to find out whether you do too.
If you’ve been friends for a long time, then that’s a sign she doesn’t consider you as just her friend any longer but something more.
15. She’s interested in meeting your friends and family
Meeting someone’s family members and friends is a pretty huge deal, don’t you agree?
Well, if she tells you how interested she is to meet them, then you’ll know she wants a serious relationship with you.
She wants to make sure she fits in with your world.
It’s important to her that she gets along with them because she knows you love them.
She doesn’t want to disappoint you and she doesn’t want to be the girl who fell for a guy and only later realized she doesn’t fit in with his family and friends.
16. She makes sure her time is spent with you
A girl who wants a serious relationship with you will make an effort to see you whenever she can.
She’ll choose to spend her valuable time with you, like Friday and Saturday night.
When you think about it, you don’t waste your precious time with someone you don’t like, right?
So, if a girl wants to be with you and wants to move forward from dating, then she’ll make sure that her valuable time is always spent with you.
17. She makes you her first choice
Does the girl you’re dating now invite you to go watch the latest movie at the cinema even when her friends have been dying to see it with her?
Does she call you when something important happened to her?
If your answer to such questions is yes, then she wants a serious relationship with you.
A girl who prioritizes you over everything is a girl worth keeping.
Whether she had a bad day at work or received some awesome news, you’ll be the first one she tells because she makes you her first choice with anything and everything.
18. She says it
Not every girl is shy and beats around the bush. Some girls gather the courage and say it without hesitation.
When a girl is serious about a guy, she doesn’t play any mind games and gets straight to the point.
If she’s committed to settling down with you and being in an exclusive serious relationship, she might say it directly to your face, so you won’t need to wonder whether or not she’s serious about you.
